Scrying Eye is an NPC in Baldur’s Gate 3. They are very strong and immune to various attacks.
You can find this character at Grymforge, floating around and consistently tracking your movements.
They have the ability to see invisible creatures within a 9m radius.
Additionally, they are immune once you enter into combat and are resistant to numerous items. Some of them are:
- Slashing Resistance
- Piercing Resistance
- Bludgeoning Resistance
- Acid Resistance
- Thunder Resistance
- Necrotic Resistance
- Fire Resistance

There are various damage types in the game. But, the damage against scrying eye from magical as well as non-magical attacks is halved for every resistance.
However, the thunder damage against this entity is doubled. They are only weak against the thunder resistance that you can use against it.
How Do You Kill A Scrying Eye?
Killing a scrying eye in BG3 is very difficult as you can do no damage to it whatever combat method you try.
Further, destroying them won’t give players exciting rewards and only yield 10 XP.
It is very annoying to the players as the scrying eye won’t kill.
However, players can throw it off instead. Throw action is used to throw a character or item from the world or your inventory.
The steps to throw the scrying eye are given as follows:
- Enter into a turn-based mode
- Locate the scrying eye
- Aim your target
- During your turn, you can pick it up and throw it away.
- Then, it shows Athletics successful.
Similarly, the other option you can try is to select the companion with the highest strength. Then, use the shove action to push it into the chasm.
As they are resistant to attacks, you can push them off a cliff every time you encounter one without attacking.
Another option is to escape battle with one companion and initiate dialogue, which will cancel the fight mode.
However, the scrying eye is weak to thunder damage and resistant to everything else. Thunder spells can only actually damage it.
Furthermore, players can also shoot it with a crossbow to kill it in one hit. This alternative worked for some players.
Similarly, a shatter spell really works well too since the scrying eye is a construct. It has disadvantages and takes more damage from the spell.
The Bottom Line
In BG3, killing the Scrying Eye is somewhat challenging as it is immune to different attacks which is annoying to the players.
Scrying Eye takes no damage in BG3 for any attack you try. However, they are weak against thunder resistance.
Along with thunder damage, you can also try other methods as mentioned above to kill it in the game.
