  • The projectile(s) from the warlock's skill keeps to the ground, meaning that it can be aimed only horizontally; its path vertically is always along the ground. It also means that targets cannot be hit if there is a gap or large elevation in the ground between the target and the caster (eg. harpy jumping puzzle in Uncategorized Fractal).
  • Bonus damage is multiplicative for each condition (eg. 7 conditions on the target equals a 1.1^7 = 1.949 modifier).
  • Phantasms have their own unique weapon strength that is independent of the player's equipped weapon rarity. The warlock has a weapon strength range of 2459-2772, with the midpoint being 2615.5.
