From a brief look at the source, invoking the eye will directly reduce the hp of every monster it affects, and therefore will not anger them/reduce tameness for pets. Could someone confirm this? -- Qazmlpok 11:23, June 18, 2010 (UTC)

Good catch - just tested that in wizard mode, and that's exactly right, it doesn't reduce tameness or make peaceful monsters hostile, but affects them all equally. I'm guessing that's an oversight on the part of the developers, but who knows? I'll put it in the article, though. -Ion frigate 13:19, June 18, 2010 (UTC)

Does #invoking affect monsters seen by invravision / telepathy / external telepathy / monster detection? Tjr 14:45, June 18, 2010 (UTC)

The eye is never blind .... It seems that the only checks are line of sight and if the area is lit. It has no relation to what you can see, only what it can see. Furthermore, there's no check that the monster isn't blind/eyeless or that it is capable of screaming (The blue jelly screams in agony). And if you have -9 luck, no check that you aren't undead. -- Qazmlpok 15:09, June 18, 2010 (UTC)

Looking at the source, it appears that lifesaving doesn't help when the Eye turns on you. Is that correct? Kufat (talk) 09:50, 20 October 2018 (UTC)
