Skills and Abilities[edit]

As they are considered elite enemies, watchers are immune to all forms of crowd control effects.

The watcher shoots a beam from its eye directly at the player as a basic ranged attack. It does moderate magic damage.
The watcher spins around releasing a burst of magic as indicated by the large red circle. Any players hit will take moderate magical damage and will be knocked back. Blocking will reduce the damage taken and prevent the knock back.
Doom-Truth's Gaze
The watcher winds up and releases a series of beams along the ground in front of it. Getting hit by one will do high magical damage to the player, and stun them briefly. The beams can be avoided by being behind the watcher when it is performing this attack.
