Controlled Blink is a level 8 Translocations spell which warps you to a nearby open space of your choice in your LOS. The space must be somewhere visible, not deep water or lava, and cannot be behind a translucent wall. Controlled Blink behaves much like a scroll of blinking. While carrying the Orb of Zot, or while venturing in the Zot branch, Controlled Blink functions like a plain, uncontrolled Blink.

Tips & Tricks

  • For stabbers, it can be very useful to know the noise grid of this spell. The "@" character is the position where you land after blinking, and the "§" characters are cells where the noise will be heard.



Prior to 0.19, Controlled Blink could be found in the now removed Akashic Record.

Prior to 0.17, Controlled Blink was a level 7 spell. Additionally, use of this spell on difficult levels, such as The Tomb and final levels of a Ziggurat, resulted in an uncontrolled Blink, due to the (also deprecated) concept of Teleport Control.

In 0.6, you couldn't blink on deep water even as a merfolk unless you are levitating.
