The Binding of Isaac Wiki

Eye of Greed

Eye of Greed

Every 20 tears, Isaac loses 1 coin and shoots an additional gold tear that petrifies enemies and turns them into gold. Any enemy killed while in this state will drop coins.

"Gold tears!"

Effects

  • Adds a golden tear every 20 tears fired, which causes enemies to turn gold and petrifies them for a few seconds (similar to
    Midas' Touch
    ) at the cost of one coin. Golden tears can still be fired if Isaac has no money.
    • Unlike other tear effects, golden tears are fired alongside regular tears rather than replacing a regular tear.
    • With multi-shot abilities, whichever tear is the 20th since previous will produce the additional golden tear.
    • The golden tear does 2x normal damage.
    • Enemies killed while golden will drop 1-4 coins.
