Fades away and slows down over time
Lost souls released later deal less damage
Stealth strikes don't slow down and souls always deal full damage
Phantom Lances are craftable Hardmode javelins. They automatically throw spears that slow down and fade away over time. Each spear leaves a trail of homing lost souls that deal less damage the later they are released. The damage linearly decreases from 70% of the spear's damage to 0 over 5 seconds. Both the souls and the spear go through blocks but do not pierce enemies.
Performing a stealth strike with Phantom Lances will cause the next javelin thrown to always move at constant velocity and soul damage is constant regardless of the projectile's lifespan.
