Forum:Identification help...

I am playing as a (promising) dwarven Valkyrie, and I am having problems for identification. There are no stores that I can find except Izchak's and a food store in Minetown. How can I identify my items? Please help!

I know what most of my wands are (Engrave-test), but I still need to identify almost all of my scrolls (I only know teleport, earth and create monster) and I need to identify my rings (I only know adornment and teleportation (unfortunate typo))

I assume you can easily steal now. throw the stuff you want identified in from the outside. DON'T HIT THE SHOPKEEPER!!! This way, they will become the shopkeepers, and he will want to sell them back to you. Do your prise identification and steal them back. Take the necessary precautions when you do this. If you have a bag it will be great.--Quantum Immortal (talk) 11:33, 22 June 2015 (UTC)


Thanks! Probably will be giving a YASD shortly... Jubilex (talk) 01:42, 24 June 2015 (UTC)


Yep... 1 candle in Minetown, and no candles anywhere else... I only noticed after I used up all of my wishes. Didn't have any way to polymorph, so polypiling was out too. This was my most promising game as of now... Jubilex (talk) 17:16, 25 June 2015 (UTC)

At what point of the game are you? There is a guaranteed wand of wishing at the castle. If you used up that, then if you keep playing, you'll eventually find a wand of polymorph or a magic lamp or just candles or sit on thrones or even a wand of wishing. Just don't kill the wizard of yendor, until after you have all the other stuff you need. If you are at the very end, and didn't plan ahead, then you'll have to farm a bit, until you get something you can use.--Quantum Immortal (talk) 05:28, 26 June 2015 (UTC)

I already killed the wizard before I realized the shortage of candles... If I tried to farm he would have kept coming back. Something to think about for next game, I guess! Jubilex (talk) 14:43, 26 June 2015 (UTC)

So you completely didn't plan ahead. :P --Quantum Immortal (talk) 16:10, 26 June 2015 (UTC)
