Golden ball is a type of item that has no clear use, yet is classified as a tool. Using it generates message "You toy around with golden ball". Using it while standing on a pool causes the ball to be lost after it is toyed with; this may be a hint to the frog quest (although it does not influence that quest in any way), and a reference to The Frog Prince.

Desirability[]

Since it does not drop naturally, golden ball can be used in item polymorphing with potions of raw chaos.

Guaranteed/Common sources[]

Sometimes a frog gives one to female characters while they drink from a pool.
