Useful Info

Phantasmal warriors are aggressive incorporeal undead with willpower-halving melee attacks. They often blink closer to you to engage in melee as rapidly as possible. They are occasionally found in the Depths, the Vaults, and the Crypt.

Tips & Tricks

  • They hit hard, but by the time you encounter them in the Depths, you should be able to easily vanquish anything with low hit points.
  • Be especially careful facing them if you're around anything that checks willpower, such as vampire knights.
  • You can summon your own phantasmal warriors with the Haunt spell.


  • Prior to 0.17, phantasmal warriors' attacks "pierced" through shields and armour, ignoring SH and only being subject to half of your AC.
  • Prior to 0.13, phantasmal warriors were fairly ordinary melee opponents with draining-branded attacks.
  • Prior to 0.9, they were called spectral warriors.
