Would it make sense adding what it says when you shoot a sleep wand at a closed door ("The door absorbs your bolt!")? Aeronflux 00:34, 28 September 2008 (UTC)

In general, a spell of sleep is much more likely to hit than the same wand. Does anybody have any numbers on this? I specialize in wizards, so it might be a level or role specific thing. Tjr 00:50, 2 December 2008 (UTC)

Sleep

How long do monsters sleep for after being hit by the wand of sleep? Is it the type of sleep where they'll wake if they get hit (like most games) or can you beat on them all you want? DemonDoll 18:17, 22 June 2009 (UTC)

If you hit them, they have a chance to wake up. -- Kalon 22:43, 22 June 2009 (UTC)
If sleeping, they have a small (IIRC 10%) chance of waking up on each hit, but paralysis (as in floating eye, potion, ...) does not let them wake up. I don't know for how long they sleep, though, but usually monsters die or wake up from melee first. -Tjr 14:35, 23 June 2009 (UTC)
