A better explanation of the Eye [In reply to] Can't Post

The battle of Dol Guldur could be used to show Sauron and his type of magic, obviously. He's good at that stuff, even in diminshed form, I suppose. After all, the ring still exists and his power is tied to the ring etc. etc.

So what kind of tricks does he display? Deceptions of some kind, I'm sure. He'll try to intimidate his foes. So what if one of the things he does, is he creates the illusion of a vast flaming thing, which might be an eye or something else. It could be something brief. Just enough so that our perception of the Eye in PJ's LOTR films gets twisted a bit: "oh they Eye is not actually Sauron, he's in the tower somewhere and the eye is one of his tricks to intimidate his subjects and also a device to amplify the Palantir..."

That would be sooo ideal...
