Bob decides to blind the creature using glitterdust which (after Bob makes his first save for looking at the creature so he can cast the spell) succeeds and to his mind makes sense as Bob has not studied these creatures, poor Bob.
Subsequently the Basilisk is blind.
However, the GM, checking the statements for Blind and Gaze can't see any mention of blindness in gaze attacks or gaze attacks in the blind condition. Bob is still in peril.
This seems rather counter-intuitive; but I can't find any ruling in the standard books about this and blinding a creature that has a gaze attack does nothing to protect victims, especially since facing in Pathfinder is abstract and it doesn't matter which way the creature looks, it's if anyone is looking at the creature.
So; Has there ever been any kind of clarification or update regarding blind creatures with gaze attacks, or have I missed something? Will blinding a gaze attack creature protect you?
