Evil Eye Strategy scrolls as well as other techniques are shared between Evil Eyes and Vile Eyes and as such will grant bestiary knowledge for both of them.
- When knocked to the ground (but not killed) they can be grabbed and picked up. This grants knowledge regardless of what one does with it later.
- Strong against Fire, Ice, Thunder, and Dark magic & enchanted weapons.
- Weak against Holy enchanted weapons and physical attacks.
- Immune to all debilitations.
- Has relatively low HP and is easy to stagger.
- The magical barrier is completely impenetrable (like the Evil Eye). Wait until the Vile Eye begins to spellcast before attacking it.
- Use bows or dash skills like Burst Strike or Cutting Wind to quickly close the distance once the Vile Eye drops its magical barrier and begins to spellcast.
- Mages & Sorcerers : Since magic does very little damage to Vile Eyes, magic vocations have two attack options. Use the heavy physical staff strike when Vile Eyes lower their shields to spellcast, or use Comestion (preferably with the Emphasis augment) to knock them skyward and interrupt their spellcasting.
- Sorcerers :
- Vile Eyes are extremely susceptible to Miasma when they lower their shields. Cast and hold Miasma until the Vile Eye drops its shield to spellcast, then unleash the spell to quickly slay groups of Vile Eyes caught within the area of effect.
- Maelstrom is generally ineffective against Vile Eyes, but is useful for herding them together to follow up with a Miasma combination attack (especially when fighting the Evil Eye spawn group in the Pre-Daimon Rotunda of Dread).
Tactics (Defensive) Edit
- The primary, general defensive strategy in Dragon's Dogma is to first eliminate all weaker enemies first.
- Beware its Petrification gaze. Wear Petrification resistant armor if possible. As a backup, bring Cockatrice Liquor or Secret Softeners to cure Petrify. The Sorcerer's High Voidspell and the Magick Archer's Great Ward Arrow can cure Petrify as well. One Sobering Wine will clear all debilitations and status effects from the party and provide an additional ninety seconds of immunity from all debilitations and negative status effects.
- If picked up while stunned or knocked down, the Vile Eye can be used to inflict Petrification upon enemies via a light that the Vile Eye will produce. Doing so will gain your Pawn knowledge.
- The Vile Eye bears a strong resemblance to the Beholders of the Dungeons & Dragons role-playing game.
