Under what circumstances does a phantom steed take a minute to disappear

Phantom Steed
3rd level illusion
Casting Time: 1 minute
Range: 30 feet
Components: V S
Duration: 1 hour
Classes: Wizard
A Large quasi-real, horselike creature appears on the ground in an unoccupied space of your choice within range. You decide the creature’s appearance, but it is equipped with a saddle, bit, and bridle. Any of the equipment created by the spell vanishes in a puff of smoke if it is carried more than 10 feet away from the steed. For the duration, you or a creature you choose can ride the steed. The creature uses the statistics for a riding horse, except it has a speed of 100 feet and can travel 10 miles in an hour, or 13 miles at a fast pace. When the spell ends, the steed gradually fades, giving the rider 1 minute to dismount. The spell ends if you use an action to dismiss it or if the steed takes any damage.

Looking at the wording of this spell, it appears that because “when the spell ends, the steed gradually fades” and “the spell ends if you use an action to dismiss it or if the steed takes any damage,” is it correct to interpret this as meaning that even if a steed is attacked in combat, it is still a fully-functional mount for the next minute?

If so, to what extent does this apply? Would a steed targeted by Dispel Magic or one inside an Antimagic Field also take a minute to fade away as the spell ends? Is there any circumstance in which it would immediately disappear?

How does Phantom Steed behave in combat?

The description of the 3th level Wizard ritual spell Phantom Steed reads:

The creature uses the statistics for a riding horse, except it has a speed of 100 feet and can travel 10 miles in an hour, or 13 miles at a fast pace. When the spell ends, the steed gradually fades, giving the rider 1 minute to dismount. The spell ends if you use an action to dismiss it or if the steed takes any damage.

I’m unclear on how Phantom Steed behaves, especially in combat:

  1. If the steed takes enough damage to be killed, does it die immediately or does it continue existing for 1 minute?
  2. Can the steed perform the dodge, disengage, or dash actions as a regular mount can?
  3. Can the steed pull a wagon or other vehicles?
  4. If not ridden, does the steed block the space it is on? If not, is the space it occupies considered difficult terrain?

Can you ritual cast multiple Phantom Steeds and continue re-summoning them while traveling?

Can you ritual cast the Phantom Steed spell multiple times and in practice just re-summon them while you are traveling? So for example, could a Wizard ritual summon a horse, three times in a row. And then just focus on re-summoning them while he’s riding one of them. The spell lasts 1 hour, ritual casting it 3 times would take 33 minutes. So he should have more than enough time to summon new horses for himself and his party before any of the individual horses disappear. Is this correct?

High Sierra Phantom Jiggling

I have a 2017 MacBook Pro and am running High Sierra 10.13.6.

I have noticed some phantom behavior and am curious if anyone knows what is causing it. It usually occurs when I am typing, either an email, some text or some code. Suddenly I can no longer type (as if my Mac has changed to another program) and all the icons on my Dock sort of vibrate and jiggle around. After a few seconds this stops and I can click on the program I was using and I can continue. If I try to continue my program while it is doing its phantom thing, it just goes back go the phantom behavior. It looks as if it reverts to the Finder instead of the program I was using.

I plan on upgrading the OS soon anyway, but was curious if anyone else has noticed this. It happens at least once a day.

Disable part of a touchscreen from taking phantom touches

I have a 10.Or G android Oreo device **

  • resolution: 1080×1920
  • density: 480

** This question follows up from here

I’m having problem with lots of ghost touches in the very top 5 mm bar of the screen where touches will register almost 20 times in a minute. Doing the overscan doesnt help at all, because touches will still register, so I am looking to resize my screen with

adb shell wm size 1080*1820

I dont know what to do from here because I’m receiving error

Error: bad size 1080*1820

Help will be greatly appreciated

Phantom Vibration from com.android.providers.downloads

I’ve found the source of roughly 10x phantom vibrations (e.g. vibrations without notification or clear cause) daily.

I am trying to determine what the root cause for this issue is.

Unable to delete folder with phantom sub-folders / files

I had a postgres database folder which I had sent to the trash. However, I’ve been unable to empty the trash because it gives me the following error:

The operation can’t be completed because the item “<item_name>” is in use.

I’m fairly certain I had shut down the database before moving the folder. Nevertheless, normally, I’d be able to restart the computer and these sorts of errors would dissipate: but in this case the error persists.

I’ve also noted some slow-downs and, suspecting disk issues, have run disk utility, which now gives the following error:

Checking the object map. error: (oid 0x4000000231b5a) om: btn: invalid o_cksum (0xdbe7569c81c16ed7) Object map is invalid. The volume /dev/disk0s2 could not be verified completely. 

When exploring the un-deletable folder I noticed that there are some phantom sub-folders (or files without extensions) in the directory. I can’t see these from the terminal if using ls, and the only reason I noticed them is because when using the cd command to drill-down into the directory I sometimes use the tab key to auto-suggest / auto-complete the next level of nested directory names: when doing so, a whole bunch of phantom folders appears.

I am unable to delete these folders using the usual rm -r <dir> type of approach…, which simply gives the No such file or directory error, so I’m not really sure what to try next.

Any ideas for how to forcefully remove the phantom folders / files and get the disk back to normal?

Getting redirect to phantom page /user/register/thankyou

In Drupal 8, I created a page with the path alias /user/register/thankyou to redirect users to after registration. Later, I changed the url of this page to simply be /thankyou/registration. I have the Redirect module enabled, so I deleted the redirect from /user/register/thankyou to /thankyou/registration.

However, now, when I go to /user/register, I am automatically redirected to /user/register/thankyou, which results in a “page not found” error.

So, somehow, there is still a “ghost” redirect in my system, although the redirect module page shows that there are no redirects on the site, and I double-checked the page with the alias /thankyou/registration, which has the correct alias.

How do I fix this redirect error?

I tried three different browsers and cloned the site from production to my local environment; in all cases, I have this issue.
