Notes

Phantom VFX

Phantom Hit VFX

  • Wrath deals Wit's End item.png proc damage, and thus will not trigger spell effects.
  • Seething Strike is not blocked by Sivir Spell Shield.png spell shield.
  • The bonus damage does not apply to structures.
  • The bonus damage dealt by Wrath benefits from Life steal icon.png life steal.
  • The Phantom Hit occurs a static delay after the basic attack was fired (independently of Melee role.png melee or Ranged role.png ranged), and will occur even if the attack was destroyed (i.e. Wind Wall Wind Wall) or Bullet strikethrough.png popped (i.e. Fizz Playful.png untargetability).
  • The stacking and Phantom Hit itself occur on-attack and do not interact with abilities that act like a basic attack (i.e. ability granted Headshot Headshot).
  • One-use on-hit effects, such as Siphoning Strike Siphoning Strike and Sheen Sheen, remain one-use, as the on-hit effect will be consumed by the initial strike and be unavailable for the second.
  • It is important to know the difference between an on-hit effect (which Phantom Hit will apply) and an on-attack effect (which Phantom Hit will not), these effects are listed below.
  • Yasuo's Yasuo's Way of the Wanderer Way of the Wanderer and Yone's Yone's Way of the Hunter Way of the Hunter take effect after every other modification of critical strike chance. Therefore, these passives do not increase critical strike chance before Guinsoo's Rageblade Guinsoo's Rageblade converts it into on-hit damage.

  • Phantom Hit does not cause you to attack twice. Effects that trigger when you attack or whose counters increase when you attack will only apply once per attack, regardless of Phantom Hit. This affects abilities such as:
  • For effects such as Vi's Vi's Denting Blows Denting Blows, the game will pro-actively use the champion's empowered attack animation if the attack would trigger the effect due to Phantom Hit - e.g. Vi Vi will perform her power animation on every 2nd attack (with Phantom Hit).

  • Strategy

    • Guinsoo's Rageblade's Guinsoo's Rageblade's unique combination of traits make it something of a niche item. It is best on basic attack-based champions who benefit from on on-hit effects for a major portion of their damage (Jax Jax, Master Yi Master Yi and Kayle Kayle). For such a champion, however, it is recommended to build the item as soon as possible, as the power spike it creates is usually enormous.
    • The Phantom hit will proc Titanic Hydra Titanic Hydra, essentially doubling the area of effect damage.
