Useful Info

Eyes of devastation are slow, floating monsters which shoot bolts of devastation, dealing irresistible damage to and halving the will of anything within range. They have decent durability but no useful resistances.

Tips & Tricks

  • Their bolts can kill off even rather beefy mid-game characters in two or three solid hits and make quick work of fragile casters. Hit them as hard and as fast as you can.
  • They are especially dangerous when hexers are around, as their bolts will make you more vulnerable to hexes.
  • If you can't blast it at range, use a corner to lure it into melee range to avoid getting shot while charging in.


  • Prior to 0.31, eyes of devastation had Energy Bolt instead of Bolt of Devastation, which did not cut willpower in half.
  • Prior to 0.20, their Energy Bolts could destroy walls.
