Wand of trap creation ( \ )
Item Type Wand
Artifact? No
Weight 3s
Danger Level 1
Material Wood

Wands of trap creation will, when "z"apped, allow the PC to create a trap in any of the eight directions. If zapped at a doorway square, it will create a trapped and locked door instead. While the wand can be zapped at the PC's own square, it will not create a trap in this case.


They are especially useful for safely killing cats by luring them into said traps. It can also be handy to create teleportation traps on a level with a river this way, if the PC has teleport control. Under some situations, you might want to zap it to create a trap under a monster. In most cases they will trigger it.

It is also possible to use it as a means of emergency door creation.

Guaranteed/Common sources[]
