A scroll that briefly halves the resistance to hostile enchantments of the reader and any nearby beings. The scroll cannot affect those fully immune to magic.

Reading a scroll of vulnerability inflicts vulnerability on everything in your line of sight (including you), reducing magic resistance by half for a short duration. Magic-immune monsters are unaffected.


  • These scrolls are somewhat rare, and usually start appearing by the middle floors of the Dungeon. They are primarily useful for enchanters or any other characters which need to overcome very high magic resistance.
  • Remember that your own magic resistance is also affected!


Prior to 0.15, scrolls of vulnerability would additionally cause all magical status effects to immediately expire, and would reduce your current magical contamination by 1-5 points. Both of these effects were transferred to the potion of cancellation.
