    Will-o'-Wisp

    This faintly glowing ball of light bobs gently in the air, the nebulous image of what might be a skull visible somewhere in its depths.

    Feed on Fear (Su)

    Any time a will-o'-wisp is within 15 feet of a dying creature or creature subject to a fear effect, it gains fast healing 5.

    Immunity to Magic (Ex)

    Will-o'-wisps are immune to all spells and spell-like abilities that allow spell resistance, except magic missile and maze.

    Natural Invisibility (Ex)

    Will-o'-wisps have the ability to extinguish their natural glow as a move action, effectively becoming invisible, as per the spell.
    FAQ/Errata
    Does invisibility purge work on creatures that are naturally invisible?
    In general, yes--nothing in the spell description says it only works on spells or other magical sources of invisibility. However, note that the invisible stalker's natural invisibility specifically says that it is not subject to invisibility purge. Thus, will-o'-wisps and pixies become visible, but invisible stalkers do not.
