— In-game description [?]


  • The listed skill coefficient is the coefficient for each shot done by the Phantasmal Duelist, totaling 2.200.
  • The coefficient used is for a level appropriate exotic pistol.
  • The phantasm will often not attack an object that must be destroyed. It will do nothing until an enemy NPC comes within range, at which point it will start attacking the NPC (rather than the object it was meant to attack).
  • The distance at which the phantasm starts shooting is inconsistent. It will often run in closer than 900 or 1200 range even if cast multiple times from the same location against a stationary target.
  • If both Illusionist's Celerity and Duelist's Discipline are used, the tool-tip will only display a maximum 20% reduction in recharge time.
  • Damage does not actually scale with weapon strength.
