The beholders eye is not usable when targetting a live (or deal) soul light.  (By the way, these, like all soullights are absolutely horrible to fight compared to all other mobs.)

soullights have a buff u need to interrupt. after that its easy. also u need to use eye after they have less than 20% which can really be a pita unless u wait for the buff to hit again so u can burn it down slowly

My eye thingy is not useable at any percentage, including 20 or lower.  (And some classes don't get interrupts, which just makes all the soullight quests incredibly annoying.)  But more importantly, I can't get any quest updates.

If you can't interrupt the soullight ability, you can also just wait for it to wear off. It's only a 10s buff.

The more you hit when the buff is up the more it triggers again so it can be up for the entire fight, don't use dots when it's up and cancel any buffs that might proc it (thornstorm for example).  You'll just have to be careful and call any pet/merc off when it gets close to 20%.

The buff stuff is annoying but isn't the point of my post.  I've FINALLY discovered you have to be right on top of the mob to be able to use the eye which is not a normal place for a caster to stand.

I'll check that out and see what I can do. Or at least relay the info to the quest designer. Either way, we should have a fix in soon =)

Vylsith: We believe your weaponry can be attuned to this plane, at least briefly. If you can ollect ethereal essence, you might be able to strike the beast, even when phased. Then eyou can defeat it.

The range of the Shrunken Gazer Eye is way too small. We have to drag the soullights down to earth first (by engaging and the backing off) to be able to use the item... which allows the ***** beasts to cast the soul barrier spell first *grumbles*

HAHAHA, okay, I'll increase it.  Sorry about that - I used another item as a template and didn't think about checking the range.  SMILEY

Thanks for the feedback!

Intro dialogue typos:

Vylsith: "Then eyou can defeat it." - "eyou" should be "you"

Vylsith: "From the soul lights." - "soul lights" should be "soullights" to match the mob name

First step also asks for "soul lights", again this should be "soullights".

The 20% mark is difficult--so far I'm 1 for 3 due to multi-attack triggering right as the soullight hits 20%. = Please consider 30% or 40%!
