I’m not really sure what’s going on here… but I encountered 4 flaming eyes in a certain part of my game map. After weathering their blindness attacks and eventually escaping them, I blindly grope my way to my safehouse, and I try to wait out the blindness and return to business as usual…
1800 heartbeats, nothing.
Another 1800 heartbeats… nothing.
Tired now, so sleep for the night… still blind.
Eventually I cheated to cure it with a royal jelly, but I’m not seeing anything that would suggest blindness should ever become a permanent thing that needs to be cured through such extreme measures… and so here I am!
Looking up blindness, it SHOULD only last 20 turns with the teleglow that those eyes infect you with – and that’s after 4 in-game hours… with a 1 in 10000 chance. Instead I’m getting insta-blinded – sometimes up to 7 times per space moved – and the blindness isn’t going away at all, even after Teleglow disappears. So what gives? What’s going on?
As a side note, this isn’t the first time I’ve run into these guys. It’s just the first time the blindness has persisted more than a few turns. I’m still not quite sure how I’m supposed to fight the darn things when they blind me from 900 yards away, but that’s not really the issue here.
