A tiny and shimmering floating eye, swift as the wind and glistening like gold. It has a peculiarly hypnotic look.

“No coveting nor envy burns
In thy bright golden eye,
That calm and innocently turns
On all below the sky.”
-Hannah Flagg Gould, _The Youth’s Coronal_

Useful Info

Golden eyes are fast, constantly-blinking pack enemies that do no damage, but try to confuse you with their gaze if they can overcome your willpower. They can be found in the Slime Pits, Abyss, and can be summoned by a few enemies through the Summon Eyeballs spell.

Tips & Tricks

  • Having at least Will+++ or clarity will render them harmless.
  • Wands of iceblast and Fireball are excellent for bypassing their annoying EV at range, but mind the noise.
  • Airstrike will usually one-shot them, given their low HP, lack of AC, and flight.
