I merged You feel controlled! and its redirects. This message relates only to teleport control, so there's no need for a separate page. --Jayt 13:57, 22 September 2006 (UTC)

Sorry...

I received the message Sorry... when not teleported to the desired location Yidda 03:29, February 28, 2010 (UTC)

That means that there was already a monster there (it happens also for walls, solid rock, etc, but if this controlled...)--209.151.235.14 15:37, 24 March 2015 (UTC)Elronnd

ring and power

Do you have to have a certain amount of magic energy to use a ring of teleport control? I ask because such seems to be the case in the game I'm currently playing. I even tried putting it on the other hand, since which hand you put a ring on can be relevant in rogue, yet control t getsa me "you do not know that spell"Slarty 00:42, June 19, 2010 (UTC)

Teleport control doesn't imply teleportitis. And it doesn't matter which hand you put your ring on in NetHack, except for a few rare cases. --Darth l33t 03:19, June 19, 2010 (UTC)
Your initial statement seems to imply failure to even understand my question, which you did not answer. Basically I want to know why my non-curesed ring of teleport

control seems unusable. I am told I don't know that spell. I never brought up teleportitus.67.42.216.230 20:16, June 21, 2010 (UTC)Slarty 20:17, June 21, 2010 (UTC)

And that is what you don't understand. Teleport control allows you to pick your destination when level teleport or regular teleportation occurs. Teleport control does not CAUSE this teleportation. That is why you can't use the spell, you indeed do not know it. ^T requires standing on a teleport trap, having teleportitis, or knowing the spell teleport away. If none of those 3 are present then you cannot teleport at will. -- Qazmlpok 20:21, June 21, 2010 (UTC)
I feel stupid. My bad!Slarty 20:59, June 21, 2010 (UTC)

Tengu

I can confirm from experience that tengu corpses do still give teleport control. -- Qazmlpok (talk) 01:37, 19 December 2015 (UTC)
