Arcane Eye (CR 14)

A large bulbous orb covered in rune carved chitinous plates with six tentacles hovers menacingly before you. Where a mouth should be are jagged tusks and multiple gill flaps that open and close rhythmically as its singular central eye stares unblinking at you. As its four large tentacles writhe, its two smaller tentacles, each ending in three digit-like protrusions move with grace, gathering arcane energies that coalesce in a globe of flames about to be unleashed with devastating effect.

All-Seeing (Su) 

An arcane eye’s central eye allows it to see all things as they really are. The arcane eye is under the constant effect of an analyze dweomer, read magic, and true seeing spell. 

Aqueous Regeneration (Su) 

An arcane eye gains regeneration 2 (healing 2 hit points per round) anytime it submerges itself completely within a body of natural salt water, fresh water, or brackish water. Stagnant, poisoned, or trapped water (such as water within an artificial pit or a bag of holding) does not activate this ability. Arcane eyes can heal up to 2 hit points per Hit Dice per day with this ability, after which it ceases to function. 

Electricity Healing (Su) 

Electricity damage heals an arcane eye 1 point of damage for every 3 points it would otherwise deal. If the amount would cause the arcane eye to exceed its full normal hit points, it gains any excess as temporary hit points--these temporary hit points last for 2 hours. 


An arcane eye casts spells as an 11th-level sorcerer.

Water Breathing (Ex) 

An arcane eye breathes water and can use its spells and abilities underwater.
