Scrolls of identify will identify one or more of the PC's items when read, depending on the scrolls' B/U/C status:

Status Effect
Blessed Identifies and reveals B/U/C status of all items in the PC's inventory.
Uncursed Identifies an item of the player's choice and identifies all other items of that type in the PC's inventory.
Cursed Identifies a single item of the player's choice.

As scrolls of identify become vastly more effective when blessed, they are popular items to dip in potions of holy water. Up to 9 scrolls can be blessed at once by dipping a stack of them into holy water.

Scrolls of identify are among the most common scrolls, and their common nature can be helpful in identifying them to begin with. After the PC has gathered some unidentified scrolls during the early game, the player can check their inventory for a scroll that is present in a higher quantity than the others - those scrolls are more likely to be scrolls of identify.


These scrolls are extremely useful, particularly when blessed. Although items can sometimes be identified by using them, this can pose risks to the PC, and - in the case of consumable items - can be wasteful as well.
