  • When used underwater, the activation is 0.5½ Activation time second.
  • Phantasms have their own unique weapon strength that is independent of the player's equipped weapon rarity. The disenchanter has a weapon strength midpoint of 2615.5.
  • The attack cannot hit the same target more than once.
  • Each bounce has a range of 600, however the phantasm times out after about ~1000 range projectile travel distance, making the projectile lose its owner and thus no longer inheriting player stats or showing up in their combat log.
