Digs a tunnel through unworked rock.

Dig is a monster-only spell which instantly carves away all rock walls, slimy walls, or iron grates in a straight line from the caster. It has no effect on stone, metal, green crystal, or any other kind of wall. This spell does not harm you in any way, but makes both escape and limiting the number of enemies you face at once difficult.

  • Prior to 0.14, Dig was also a level 4 Earth Magic spell available to the player. It functioned identically, making it easy to create choke points or shortcuts between staircases, as well as allowing access to certain vaults. Although this spell no longer exists, you can still duplicate its effects with a wand of digging.
  • Prior to 0.12, Dig was an Earth Magic/Transmutations spell.
