Wand of sleep
|Base price||175 zm|
|Monster use||May be used offensively by monsters.|
When zapped, it emits a ray that puts monsters it hits to sleep unless they resist. Bolts of sleep can bounce from walls and unrevealed secret doors, but are absorbed by non-secret or discovered secret doors.
You can use it to help defeat (or escape) a difficult monster(s) unless they have sleep resistance; just be careful where the beam bounces. In a coaligned temple, you can use this wand to park a heavy monster on the altar so that you can kill it there without having it run away from you.
When engraving, this wand gives the same message as a wand of death. If the wand was not generated in a monster's inventory, the odds are 6:1 for it being sleep.
