Version 0.21: This article may not be up to date for the latest stable release of Crawl.

Wisp Form is one of the bad forms that can happen when the player character is polymorphed. It resembles the monster insubstantial wisp. It has the following characteristics:



  • You can't use weapons, armour, or jewellery.
  • You can't cast spells.
  • You can't evoke wands.
  • Randomly blinks from time to time (10% chance each turn).
  • Sometimes moves as if confused, although won't bump into walls or into allies (10% chance each turn)


  • In 0.22, most bad forms will be able to evoke wands.
  • Prior to 0.15, wisp form allowed the player to blink as an ability, but prevented you from reading scrolls. It also granted perfect conservation, protecting your consumables from item destruction.
  • Wisp Form was added in 0.12.
