A monocle of the ebon hunter is a coin-sized lens of smoky crystal, set in a wire frame that attaches to your head near the temple.
When you have a ranged weapon in your hands and are in shadowy illumination or darkness, the wire frame around the monocle glows faintly red-orange, like embers in a campfire. Peering through the monocle, you see auras surrounding your foes within 60 feet. Bright sparks on the periphery of the aura indicate weak points in your enemies’ defenses; you’re more likely to strike a telling blow if you can hit those points.
Monocles of the ebon hunter come in two varieties. A lesser monocle grants a +1 competence bonus on ranged attacks made against targets within 60 feet. A greater monocle grants a +2 competence bonus on ranged attacks on targets within 60 feet, and a +1 competence bonus on damage rolls if those ranged attacks hit.
Both versions of the monocle of the ebon hunter grant darkvision out to 60 feet.
Requirements Craft Wondrous Item, darkvision, true strike.
Cost 9,000 gp (lesser) or 19,000 gp (greater).
