An amulet of magic resistance is a type of amulet that appears in SlashTHEM and EvilHack. It grants magic resistance while worn, and its default material is iron, like all amulets.

The default randomized appearance associated with it in SlashTHEM is a rare amulet.[1] In EvilHack, the default random appearance is an oblong amulet.[2]


The amulet of magic resistance appears in different places dependent on the variant.


Giant Wizards start the game with an amulet of magic resistance, technically their equivalent to the role's standard cloak of magic resistance.[3][4]

The Sokoban prize amulet has an equal chance to be an amulet of magic resistance or an amulet of reflection.

Giant aligned priests have a 121 chance to generate wearing an amulet of magic resistance, the same as the chance for other aligned priests to generate with a cloak of magic resistance.[5] Giant wizard player monsters will generate with an amulet of magic resistance, and other player monsters created at level 20 or higher may generate with an amulet of magic resistance.[6][7] The Wizard of Yendor has a 50% chance to generate with an amulet of magic resistance.[8]



Amulets of magic resistance allow for more flexibility in most players' choice of armor, especially for ascension kits - it is of particular importance to giants, whose choices are limited to either the amulet or a artifact that must be carried or wielded.
