Notes[edit]

  • Phantasms have their own unique weapon strength that is independent of the player's equipped weapon rarity. The duelist has a weapon strength range of 2406-2825, with the midpoint being 2615.5.
  • 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.
