|Translocates the caster a short distance, with precise control. Be wary that controlled translocations will cause the subject to become contaminated with magical energy.|
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 0.17, 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.
