Illusionist Badge

You have learned enough from fighting the Illusionists of the Carnival of Shadows to know the real from the fake.

How to Get

Defeat 100 Illusionists, Phantasms, and Dark Servants summoned by Master Illusionists.


  • The Phantasms themselves can summon Decoy Phantasms, which is a source of confusion because of the description of the task for this badge mentions "Illusionist decoys." It is not the Decoy Phantasms to defeat (since you can't damage them).
  • Summoned Illusionists will despawn after a very short time, often before you can deal enough damage to them to defeat them. Even when this happens, you will receive credit for her defeat so long as at least one point damage is done to the Illusionist.
  • Summoned Illusionists are spawned three at a time, and in a phased state. Damage cannot be done while they are in this state. Look carefully at how solid they look before attacking.
