|Randomly alters the form of a creature. It is especially effective against shape-changing creatures.|
Polymorph is a monster-only spell that inflicts different effects depending on whether its target is a player or a monster. Players are inflicted with a temporary bad form transformation, while monsters are transformed into another monster of the same holiness with similar HD. Mutation resistance provides no protection from polymorph, but magic resistance and worshiping Zin may protect you.
Players may use a similar effect by zapping a wand of polymorph.
The following enemies may be able to cast Polymorph, depending on their spell set:
- Pandemonium lord (3.4% chance)
