Version 0.21: This article may not be up to date for the latest stable release of Crawl.
Reduces the chance of projectile attacks striking the caster, making them easier to dodge. Single-target attacks are much easier to repel than penetrating attacks. Each time a missile is repelled the spell has a chance of expiring, with a lower chance of expiry at high power.

Repel Missiles is a monster-only spell which moderately protects the caster from ranged attacks.

Effect

Repel Missiles reduces the to-hit of ranged attacks against the caster to a random value between:

  • vs single-target beams: 0% - 100% of its normal value
  • vs penetrating bolts: 50% - 100% of its normal value[1]

This spell only helps to evade ranged attacks; it has no effect on the caster's ability to block them.

The following enemies cast Repel Missiles:

Player sources

Though the Repel Missiles spell is no longer available for players, several other sources exist for players to receive the effect:

Deflect Missiles is a more advanced version of Repel Missiles and its effect overrides Repel Missiles' effect.

Strategy

Although this effect is inferior to Deflect Missiles, it's still much better than nothing, especially in the early Dungeon when Deflect Missiles isn't available and you might encounter centaurs (who have made pincushions of many a low-level player). Repel Missiles is useful while exploring the Shoals, the Elven Halls, the Vaults, and other areas infested with enemies who love to shoot at you.
