Tips & Tricks

  • Although not tremendously powerful, their ability to ignore your defenses makes it difficult for any character to consider them harmless. Be especially careful facing them around anything that casts spells which are affected by your magic resistance!
  • You can summon your own phantasmal warriors with the Haunt spell.

History

  • 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.
