Effects

An amulet of reflection conveys extrinsic reflection when worn.

Generation

There is a 7.5% chance that a randomly-generated amulet will be an amulet of reflection. There is also a 50% chance that it is in the treasure zoo at the top of Sokoban.

Identification

This amulet auto-identifies when something reflects from it. Monsters will also don amulets of reflection. Therefore an amulet worn by a monster that isn't an amulet of life saving is an amulet of reflection.

If you don't want to wait for a monster to zap you, you can zap a suitable wand or spell at a wall and see if it hits you on the rebound. A wand of magic missile is ideal for this, since it does less damage than elemental wands, won't harm your equipment, and is of little use otherwise.

Strategy

Reflection is a very important property and the amulet of reflection is a very good source of it. It should be worn at all times until another source is found (e.g. silver dragon scale mail).
