Attacks[]

Attack Type Description
Barrier Spec Erects a defensive shield to protect itself from all damage (can be broken with enough magick attacks). The Vile Eye cannot cast magick while the shield is maintained.
Charge Phys Snaps with its lids few times then charges forward while maintaining its barrier.
Dimensional Phase-Shift Spec Teleports to cover ground quickly.
Ocular Magick Mag The eye lowers its shield and casts spells such as Levin, Ingle, or Frigor.
Crippling Beam Spec/Mag The Vile Eye lowers its barrier and emits a Petrification beam. May also inflict blind, Torpor, Silence, Poison and Curse.
Petrifying Glare Spec If a Vile Eye is picked up and aimed at other foes, it will emit a beam that can be used to petrify them.
Evil Pulse Mag/Status The Eye pauses as it prepares a spell, signified by its eye glowing bright crimson. After a short incantation time, the spell will be released with a shockwave that can knockover, it will also remove Weapon enchantments and may inflict Skill Stifling.

Tactics[]

Offensive[]

Chamber_of_Sorrow_A4._2_Vile_Eyes_slain.

Chamber of Sorrow A4. 2 Vile Eyes slain.

Wait for their shields to drop before attacking with fast dash attacks (like Blitz Strike or Cutting Wind) or ranged attacks.

  • Resistant to all Elemental Attributes except Holy, and especially so to Dark.
  • Immune to all debilitations except Burning, Frozen, and Holy Healing.
  • The magickal barrier is almost completely impenetrable - wait until the Vile Eye begins to spellcast before attacking it.
    • However, (unlike the Evil Eye's barrier) certain elemental debilitations can pass the barrier - these are Burning, Frozen, and Holy Healing.
    • If shielded the Eye will resist the effect of a Maker's Finger - the tendrils will still link to other creatures and destroy them even if the Eye resisted the arrow.
  • Has relatively low health and is easy to stagger.
  • Striders: the Dark Arisen skill Soaring Stone can lift Eyes into the air, breaking their barrier, and leaving them vulnerable to further attacks.
  • If picked up while stunned or knocked down, the Vile Eye's Petrifying Glare can be used to inflict Petrification upon enemies via the light that the Vile Eye will produce. Doing so will gain Pawns Bestiary knowledge.
