Wizard Eye allows a wizard to create a mobile, invisible sensory organ that sends him visual information.

The sensor created by this spell can be detected with spells created to counter invisibility such as True Sight.

Solid barriers prevent the passage of a wizard eye. The powers of the eye cannot be enhanced by other spells or items. The caster is subject to any gaze attack met by the eye. A successful Dispel Magic cast on the wizard or eye ends the spell.

Gameplay[]

Usage notes[]

The Wizard Eye is a fast-moving, floating, invisible eyeball monster. It counts against the 5-monster summoning limit. It is a very useful surveillance monster due to its natural speed and invisibility, not to mention it's one of the few creatures (besides party members) that can clear the fog of war. The eyeball will be targeted by hostiles who can see through invisibility.
