+28 vs AC; 4d6+8 damage, and the mouth detaches from the gibbering orb and makes a new bite attack against the target each round at the start of the gibbering orb’s turn. When the mouth misses, it drops off and turns into useless, dead gray flesh.

Close burst 10; deafened creatures are immune; +25 vs Will; the target is dazed until the end of the gibbering orb’s next turn.
Eye Rays (standard, at-will) see text
The gibbering orb can use two different eye ray powers (chosen from the list below or rolled randomly). Each power must target a different creature. Using eye rays does not provoke opportunity attacks.
1—Mindcarving Ray (Psychic): Ranged 10; +27 vs. Will; 2d8 + 10 psychic damage, and the target is dazed (save ends).
2—Flesheating Ray (Necrotic): Ranged 10; +27 vs. Fortitude; 2d8 + 10 necrotic damage, and ongoing 10 necrotic damage (save ends).
3—Bonewarping Ray: Ranged 10; +27 vs. Fortitude; 2d8 + 10 damage, the target is weakened (save ends).
4—Bloodfeasting Ray: Ranged 10; +27 vs. Reflex; 2d8 + 10 damage, and ongoing 10 damage (save ends).
5—Farsending Ray (Psychic, Teleportation): Ranged 10; +27 vs. Reflex; the target is briefly transported to the Far Realm, reappearing in the same space (or the nearest unoccupied space if that space is occupied) at the end of the gibbering orb’s next turn. Upon its return, the target takes 2d8 + 10 psychic damage and takes a –5 penalty to saving throws until the end of the encounter.
6—Souleating Ray (Necrotic): Ranged 10; +27 vs. Will; the target is slowed (save ends). First Failed Saving Throw: The target is immobilized instead of slowed (save ends). Second Failed Saving Throw: The target dies
