This spell allows short-range translocation, with precise control. In areas that prevent teleport control, it will still be possible to choose a direction for the blink. Be wary that controlled teleports will cause the subject to become contaminated with magical energy.

Controlled Blink is a level 8 Translocations spell which warps you to a nearby open space of your choice in your LOS. The space must be somewhere visible, not deep water or lava, and cannot be behind a translucent wall. Controlled Blink behaves much like a scroll of blinking. While carrying the Orb of Zot, Controlled Blink functions like a plain, uncontrolled Blink.

Tips & Tricks

  • For stabbers, it can be very useful to know the noise grid of this spell. The "@" character is the position where you land after blinking, and the "§" characters are cells where the noise will be heard.
