— In-game description [?]
|Illusionary Sword Attack||4||480||Deals damage and causes a leap finisher.|
- Phantasm's leap in has range of ~480 range units. The leap out takes the phantasm to ~240 range units away from the target. The phantasm attempts to remain within ~480 range units of its target.
- The phantasm evades for a short amount of time during its attack animation.
- Phantasm will back up if its target comes closer than zero range units to it (ie, their target areas overlap).
- The leap finisher is applied to the mesmer upon summoning the phantasm. The phantasm itself also gets a leap finisher with each attack.
- Phantasms have their own unique weapon strength that is independent of the player's equipped weapon rarity. The swordsman has a weapon strength range of 2485-2746, with the midpoint being 2615.5.
