Scrolls of repair are scrolls that, when read, repair a broken item or a stack of broken items. A blessed scroll also moves the stacks' B/U/C status up by one (from Cursed to Uncursed, Uncursed to Blessed). Cursed scrolls can actually break a stack of items.


They are quite useful, though in everyday adventuring you might end up only repairing broken pickaxes, keys or wands from time to time. Breaking a stack of items with a cursed scroll (provided that it is possible to do so) and repairing the stack with a blessed scroll can notably bless a lot more items at once than a potion of holy water could.

Guaranteed/Common sources[]

They can be obtained in the same manner as all generic loot.
