I was checking out the immunities of monsters in GF4, and I realized that something was missing.

Is anyone here aware that Gazers/Eyebeasts are immune to mental attacks, and also to ancillary acid/poison damage? Gazers/Eyebeasts are essentially the 'new searing artilas'!

Oh, and on a totally unrelated note, someone should tell the author of the GF4 FAQ that killing Uchilette will net you a Shaper Robe. It's great for a budding lifecrafter to have this robe in Chapter 2! :)

If Gazers in G4 are overpowered eyeballs of death, then Gazers are still the old Gazers.

For what it's worth, darn near everything of interest to be had from anywhere in the game is on the G4 Items List in my signature. The Shaper Robe you mention was on my list on my hard drive, but I hadn't updated the online list yet, so thanks for the reminder. It's there now.

Technically, they aren't immune to either. The poison/acid "immunity" is at 80%, so they should still take some damage. Plus, it's a BUG -- ancillary poison and acid resistance is calculated with the magic resistance stat instead of the appropriate ones.

Their mental resistance starts at 90%, so it's unlikely anything will ever affect them. However, that's true of all the other 4th- and 5th-tier creations as well.

For goodness sake.

Why do you quote figures to 'prove' actual gaming experience wrong? I know what I saw. I'm not hallucinating.

Gazers are IMMUNE to mental attacks. It says so in the scroll-bar "Gazer is immune to mental effects" whenever they are hit by an enemy daze, terror, dominate, etc.. If it was merely high resistance, then the scroll bar would say 'Gazer resists'.

As for the acid and poison ancillary damage, a Gazer doesn't even get the ancillary 'effect' status bestowed up on. Ergo. He isn't covered in poison or acid to begin with, despite the fact that it should be hit by an acid/poison ancillary attack.

I've tried hitting the Gazer with acid batons, venom baton, artila spit, and Rotgroth attacks (!), with NO ancillary status granted to the Gazer whatsoever. I wasn't wearing any gear which bestowed poison/acid/mental immunity on my creations.

Also note that the Rotgroth, king of acid, DOES have receive the acid/poison ancillary status, although he resists a measurable proportion.

I've only experimented with Gazers, not Eyebeasts.

So once again, I am forced to conclude that

1. Gazers are IMMUNE to mental attacks.

2. Gazers are IMMUNE to poison and acid.

Which is just further evidence as to why one should replace Wingbolts with Gazers.

Oh, I've also discovered that ancillary lightning damage does not apply to Gazers (ie. If they are hit by a Kyshakk).
