Wand of acid
|Base price||500 zm|
|Monster use||May be used offensively by monsters.|
Like many other acid-based attacks, the acid ray can corrode iron and copper weapons and armor. Every time an acid ray hits a target, there is a 1 in 6 chance that the target's weapon will be affected and a separate 1 in 6 chance that its armor will be affected. If a player wielding two weapons is hit by the acid, each weapon has a 1 in 3 chance of being affected.
Being hit by the acid ray will cure stoning. However, if you zap yourself with the wand, you will also take 8-48 damage, unless you have acid resistance. A potion of acid or an acidic corpse are safer cures that do less damage.
Breaking a wand of acid (by applying) causes an explosion which deals double damage to you and to creatures on surrounding squares.
Attempting to engrave with a wand of acid returns the message "The bugs on the <floor> seem to be covered in goo!" which can be used to identify the wand, though the wand does not self-identify. Engravings made this way are non-permanent.
