Version 0.16: This article may not be up to date for the latest stable release of Crawl.

Fly is a status effect that sends you soaring above the ground. A flying player can ignore the penalties of shallow water, cross patches of deep water and lava, and gets a small increase to speed if the character is a tengu. The only downside to flying is that it greatly increases the damage you take from the Airstrike spell; consider landing before facing foes who know it.

Flight removes some bonuses and penalties to stealth:

Gargoyles, tengu, and black draconians eventually acquire the innate ability to fly. Other species must rely upon magic, equipment, or potions.


Prior to 0.16, flight protected you from mechanical traps.

Prior to 0.15, flying creatures had a 2/3rds chance of dodging thrown nets.

Prior to 0.13, flight could protect you from electrical attacks.

Prior to 0.12, flight increased the caster's carrying capacity.
