|| Wand of random effects
|| A magical device which can produce a variety of effects.
A wand of random effects creates an unpredictable effect when zapped, emulating any other wand except for the wand of disintegration. Although there are far more attack wands than support wands, its usefulness in combat is questionable. You must decide if it's worth the risk hasting, healing, polymorphing, or rendering a dangerous enemy invisible.
Tips & Tricks
- Followers of good gods risk penance, since wands of draining or polymorph are forbidden to them.
- Out of wands of digging? A wand of random effects might eventually create a digging effect, if you have enough charges.
- Heavily rotted characters, especially mummies, may use them at full HP in the hopes of eventually getting some of their rot cured.
