Added in Afterbirth †

Eye of Greed is an unlockable passive item added in The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth †.

Effects[]

  • Adds a golden tear every 20 tears fired, which causes enemies to turn gold and petrifies them for a few seconds (similar to 15►Midas' Touch 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.
    • Removed in Repentance The golden tear does 2x normal damage.
      • Added in Repentance If Isaac has no money, the golden tear does normal tear damage. If Isaac does have money, the golden tear deals 1.5x normal damage + 10.
    • Removed in Repentance Enemies killed while golden will drop 1-4 coins.
      • Added in Repentance Enemies killed while golden will drop 1-3 coins.
    • Added in Repentance If Isaac has money, golden tears that hit enemies will drop a penny, effectively returning the cost.

Notes[]

  • Tears fired from items that cause multiple tears to be fired at once, e.g. 15►20/20 20/20, 15►Monstro's Lung Monstro's Lung, etc., are counted.
    • The gold tear is not duplicated by said items.
  • The Forgotten The Forgotten has separate tear counters for The Forgotten and Soul.
  • Using this item is an easy way of unlocking Added in Repentance15►Golden Razor Golden Razor after obtaining 99 coins, since it drains them by just shooting and with enough patience it will reduce their count to 0.

Synergies[]

  • 15►Chocolate Milk Chocolate Milk: How much the 20th tear was charged determines the size and damage of the golden tear.
  • 15►Compound Fracture Compound Fracture / 15►Cricket's Body Cricket's Body / 15►The Parasite The Parasite: Golden tears will still look like coins and will still split into other golden coins when hitting obstacles.
  • Equality! Equality!: The coin lost when firing the tear can be quite useful for equalizing the pickup counter.
  • Added in Repentance15►Humbling Bundle Humbling Bundle: Affects coins dropped from hitting enemies, allowing Isaac to potentially farm money.
  • 15►Lachryphagy Lachryphagy: Golden tears can also be fed and will burst into split tears. Burst tears are not golden.
