Quaffing a potion of cure mutation will immediately remove 0-7 random mutations, heavily weighted towards 3-5, from your character:

# Removed 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7
Probability (%) 0.05 1.0 6.3 19.8 32.2 27.4 11.4 1.8

It removes both good and bad mutations, but mutations innate to your species (e.g. Draconian's scales, Naga's slow movement, demonspawn mutations) can never be removed.


These potions are very rare and very valuable. Some bad mutations, such as teleportitis and Blurry Vision, can outright kill you. Save these potions for when you have unbearable mutations - don't waste them trying to cure -2 Str or -2 Int (unless you're at risk of stat zero).

Prevention is better than the cure. You might not find any cure mutation potions for a long time, and even if you do, there's a chance it might not remove the mutation you want. The less mutations you receive, the less you'll need to rely on these potions.

If you don't have any cure mutation, and desperately need a mutation gone, you can try quaffing potions of mutation. This might result you being even worse off than you are, characters with many bad mutations are more likely to have some removed.
