A surprise in every bottle! Potions of mutation first remove 2-4 mutations, then attempt to inflict 1-3 random mutations on you with each of those mutations having a 60% chance of being good, then give you one good mutation. Heavily mutated characters or those with any form of mutation resistance will often receive fewer mutations, potentially receiving zero.

Followers of Zin incur a piety loss if they knowingly drink this potion at less than ****** (160) piety. Otherwise the potion removes 2-4 mutations without a hit to piety.

Note that Ghouls cannot use this potion, but drinking an unidentified potion of mutation will cause them to suffer stat drain.
