    If they're orange/yellow then I'd go with prismatic until you get a plane shift result. Consolation prize is stoning them. Probably the cheapest.

    But cc/ik doesn't work on red names.

    A couple facts: The anti magic debuff is only medium range. If you get it, all your buffs are dispelled (annoying) and you can't cast spells (deadly). The debuff takes a second or two to dissipate after you're out of the aoe. Beholders seem to have low saves.

    Your best bet as a caster is to stay at long distance and use ray spells. Disintegrate, frost lance, polar ray, scorching ray and lightning bolt all work well. Prismatic ray is also a good one, as well as meteor swarm. I can usually kill a beholder this way before it figures out what's going on and gets within retaliation distance. Spamming sonic blast and electric loop would probably work great at lower levels from the doubled up stuns.
    FYI, when I summon an earth elemental, it's not a "he," it's a "she." And her name is Pebbles.

    Force damage. Far as I can tell, this is one of the damage types they don't have resistance to.
    Therefore, taking one of the cheap force spells (say Chain Missiles) and dropping the Enhance metamagic on it should make the job a bit easier.

    While you're at it:

    Deathblock items, and make use of a really high-damage spell. Beholders are bad at will saves, so a Phantasmal Killer will kill it before it can antimagic you. Wall of Fire and ray spells (especially Prismatic) also do nicely. If all else fails, get Death Ward for negative levels, give up on magic and just punch it.

    But yes, they are annoying.

    Just tested a new bladeforged sorc out dw won't stop beholder level drains bfs are still immune so that helped

    and the con fort save if you don't got enough hp can still kill i think

    worked great or ya would of just grabbed my axe
