-Antonio Machado, Campos de Castilla. 1912-1917.

Useful Info

Glass eyes are harmless on their own, but their gaze unavoidably inflicts the Fragile status for 4-8 turns. Fragile causes you to take 50% more damage, making glass eyes a dangerous support monster. They can be found in the Slime Pits and the Depths.

Tips & Tricks

  • Watch out - the +50% damage really hurts if other monsters are around you.
  • Their gaze doesn't need a line of fire to hurt you. Just being in line of sight of the glass eye will put you at risk.
  • As monsters made out of glass, they are vulnerable to Lee's Rapid Deconstruction and Shatter. LRD in particular will cause a range-2 blast when targeting them.
