|| An ancient skeletal apparition, sheathed in a cloud of mist. Its form glows white-hot with debilitating energy.
Eidola are insubstantial undead monsters, similar to wraiths but stronger. Their melee attacks inflict the slow status effect and occasionally cause intelligence damage, though both effects can be prevented with negative energy resistance. They can also magically terrify you, making you unable to move closer to the eidolon for some time, and will then blast you with Bolt of Draining. They are found in Tartarus, the Abyss, the Crypt, and rarely in the Vaults.
Tips & Tricks
- Pile on the negative energy resistance when dealing with these guys, as Cause Fear coupled with Bolt of Draining can result in heavy amounts of draining very quickly.
- Cause Fear can be resisted with high magic resistance. This can be critical if you lack the means to defeat them quickly at range.
- Silence doesn't stop these guys from casting, so don't expect that silent spectre you have following you around to provide any assistance.
Prior to 0.13, eidola would drain your experience with their melee attacks. This change accompanied the 0.13 overhaul to draining effects. They also gained Bolt of Draining.
