It is difficult to take on these cultists with a party of henchmen or less than level 20 players. They can overwhelm a party and their patrols are closely tied together. Luring a few will bring about at least six cultists, and every Apprentice of Verata will raise Bone Fiends instead of their fallen and place great stress on the healers.
These Eyes are the real backbreaker in the groups of Verata's cultists that players will meet. They interrupt spell casting with Choking Gas, they cause burning and being crippled and they are the primary damage dealers as the cult has no warriors or elementalists in the area.
