The wand of make invisible is a wand that appears in NetHack.

Generation

Monsters may be generated with a wand of make invisible as a miscellaneous item.

Effects

Zapping the wand at a monster makes them invisible; zapping this wand at a peaceful monster will anger it. If you zap it at yourself, you become permanently invisible, unless you are wearing a mummy wrapping. Zapping the wand downward will make any engraving on that square disappear, as does engraving with it.

Strategy

Main article: Invisibility

If you do not yet have a method to enter shops, e.g. a mummy wrapping, you might want to keep this wand in case you get a fresh stalker corpse; eating one while already invisible will grant the see invisible intrinsic and make you permanently invisible, which you already will be as a result of the wand.

Once a player is permanently invisible, this wand normally has little use; making your non-steed pets invisible does not give them a combat advantage. Pacifists will see lots of floating eyes, and may want the wand to make them invisible and render them safe for their pet to kill.

Variants

In SLASH'EM, wands of make invisible can also make objects invisible. This simplifies the process of identifying the wand.
