Identification[edit]

This potion is very often identified for you when a monster quaffs it. It self-identifies only if you manage to observe yourself becoming invisible.

Strategy[edit]

See invisibility for details on being invisible.

This potion is a prime candidate for dilution, as you rarely need more than one, if any. It is best picked up to deny monsters its use.
