Spell 1 Description
"Casts an aura of burning ash that explodes on direct impact. The aura splits into eight projectiles after one second without collision, in a forward spread angle."
Spell 1 Info
Ash Pulse is a Projectile Spell, of which the user shoots a mystical blue ball which later splits up into 8 balls in a row in front of them. The user is able to move while casting this spell, of which opponents will be damaged greatly if they are hit by the initial blue ball, of which after a second will split up into the 8 smaller balls. These balls alone have low damage, but a fairly unexpected decent hitbox, of which allow them to hit a wide area upon explosion, as well as sometimes opponents being able to be hit by more than one. The further the distance travelled by the balls, the wider the distance in between each ball. It consumes 325 Mana and has a 6 second cooldown. A maximum of 3 orbs will do damage. Before this was nerfed, if all the small orbs hit the target it can deal up to 900 damage. Making a lot of people call this element or spell ”cancer”.

Spell 4 Type
Spell 4 Description
"Instantaneously dash where you aim. Deals a mild blow to anyone in your path. A dash ending midair results in a pair of wings, allowing you to glide."
Spell 4 Info
Holy Dash is a Travelling Spell, of which the user glows a blue aura with black stars by holding their mouse button, and once releasing, instantly dashing at faster than eye speeds to another area. This spell is fast, and damages any opponents during collision. In addition to this, the user leaves a blue flame trail, which adds on high burn damage to whoever stands in it. If this move dashes in midair, the user will slowly float down with black phoenix wings, allowing them to glide in the air. while still leaving a blue flame trail below them. This consumes 300 Mana and has a 6 second cooldown.
"Become a Queen Phoenix with the power to rain fiery doom on unsuspecting or suspecting opponents alike. End it with a nose-dive at wherever you aim in a spectacular crash (triggered early with Y key)."
Spell 5 Info
Immolate is Phoenix's Ultimate. The User surrounds them self into a large, glowing orange phoenix, and rises in the air, of which they then begin to rapidly shoot multi-colored mystical fire blasts from their chest while flying. These blasts damage opponents, as well as create additional pools of multi-colored fire that give slight burn damage. These blasts will fire automatically in the direction of the cursor, though with delay. Once the ultimate is finished blasting, the phoenix will then nose dive in the desired location, dealing heavy damage. This nosedive, and therefore the Ultimate's duration can be triggered early by pressing the 'Y' key to suit the user's timing. It consumes 1000 Mana and has a 70 second cooldown.
Spell 5 Picture
Phoenix has the first ultimate to have the ability to be stopped early (via pressing Y). However, it is not the first ability, Time's Warp Bombs being the first.
On the testing server, Phoenix's spell colors were similar to that of Space, and Phoenix's spells used to cast Space's medal.
Phoenix used to have a Healing Spell called "Undying Being" on which the user ignited himself with blue flames that regenerated 10+ health over time and granted a speed boost. That spell was removed and replaced when the element was released.
Phoenix was originally planned to be a fusion element between Fire and Wind, with 150 diamonds needed to be unlocked. However it was scrapped, probably due to the fact that new players would get the element quickly.
Phoenix's Blue Arson is the only close-range move that can heal the user and also not do any initial damage like other close-range moves.
The way the player floats down using Phoenix wings after Holy Dash may be based off Bayonetta from the game series of the same name, who can float down softly with butterfly wings after jumping in the air. Another future reference may be from Reaper's Reaper's Wroth, with a fist extruding out from a portal, just like Bayonetta's powers.
Phoenix was the first element added to be based on a mythical creature, before Reaper and Dragon.
Phoenix is a collaboration-made element (unvoluntarily) by two users on the Discord; CV and Twizzy. Twizzy made Ash Pulse, while CV made everything else.
Phoenix is the fourth fan-made element.
Phoenix is the first element to have a move that gives a decimal XP instead of a whole number.
"Phoenix" is often misspelled "Pheonix".
Ash Pulse is one of the most overused spells in the game, mainly because of it's bullet splitting and high damage.
Phoenix's Immolate can be stopped in mid-air with Nightmare's Bloodcurdling Blast
The way the user heals from the blue flames from Phoenix spells may be a reference to One - Piece, where the user of a devil fruit that allows them to transform into a Phoenix can also heal from the blue flames the user generates.
Though it's more probable that the healing comes from phoenixes themselves, which are said to possess regenerative abilities through their tears. The only difference is that Blue Arson is a cluster of flames, while normal Phoenix healing comes from tears.
Phoenix is the first and only element on which the caster does not make any animation while casting its spells.
