Wand of secret door detection
|Name||secret door detection|
|Base price||150 zm|
|Monster use||Will not be used by monsters.|
When zapped, the wand has the same effect as a spell of detect unseen: it detects all undiscovered secret doors, mimics, and traps in a radius of 8 squares in line-of-sight upon zapping/engraving. It will also show the location of submerged creatures in pools. On the Plane of Air only, the wand also penetrates clouds.
Nearby monsters that you can't see due to invisibility will be revealed as I. Marks on spaces without monsters are removed, and monsters that are hiding will be revealed. Engraving with the wand will only auto-identify it if any of these things are present; otherwise, it gives no message.
Identification of this wand is very easy, as it is non-directional and the wands of light, enlightenment, create monster, and wishing - all of which are also non-directional - have very obvious effects and usually auto-identify when zapped.
