Description

Zapping Zapping is the art of changing certain items into different yet related items. To zap items, players must acquire a wand. Here are the steps to acquire one:

  1. Discover The Secret of the Dungeons of Doom
  2. Adventure at The Dungeons of Doom until Ouch! You bump into a door! shows up.
  3. Purchase the cloak-like item priced at 5,000 Meat.
  4. Defeat the Mimic that has been mimicking the cloak-like item.
  5. Use the dead mimic to obtain a wand.
  6. Start Zapping things!

There are five types of wands, but they all appear to have the same effects. Wands will break after 2-5 successful uses per day (see Cool-Down), so use your zaps wisely and be careful. You can use a wand once a day without any chance of it blowing up, but you will be pushing your luck to attempt a second zap, and the chances of four zaps in a day without breaking your wand are very much against you. The wand will always break after its fifth successful use in a single day. If a zap fails to affect the item, it is safe to reuse the wand that day. The five wands are: aluminum wand, ebony wand, hexagonal wand, marble wand and pine wand.

Additionally, if you have a diabolic pizza cube installed in Your Workshed, you can make a fake Diabolic pizza as an alternative method to obtain a dead mimic.

Cool-Down

As you can see from the "When Used" section, wands heat up with each use. Fortunately, they also cool down at rollover. The first use of a wand per day seems to add one "heat level" and show the "feels a little warm" message, but subsequent uses before rollover can add anywhere from 1 to 4 extra "heat levels." At "heat level" 5 and above, the wand explodes (if you're unlucky enough to have your second use of the day add 4, you lose the wand and 20+ HP). This means that at "heat level" n, the next zap has an n/4 chance to break the wand.

Chance of your wand surviving n zaps in one day
n 1 2 3 4 5
Percent chance 100 75 18.75 1.5625 0

As of approximately Thursday, September 14, 2006, the Zapping window apparently now tells what "heat level" the wand is at.

Level 1: The <wand> feels warm to the touch...
Level 2: The <wand> gets really hot. You should probably be careful.
Level 3: The <wand> starts to vibrate. Wisps of smoke rise from the end. You should definitely be careful.
Level 4: The <wand> glows red-hot, and sparks fly out of it. You should seriously be careful.
Level 5+: The <wand> abruptly explodes, burning your hand pretty badly in the process.

Jick has confirmed on his radio show that if you only zap with a wand once per day, it will never explode.

Once a wand explodes, you can get another one 3 days later or on your next ascension, whichever comes first. (You will have to find the Dungeons of Doom, so ascending probably won't be the fastest way to acquire a new one.)

Also note that the Platinum Yendorian Express Card when used will cool your wand, in theory allowing you two safe zaps a day, or up to eight (very) unsafe zaps.

What Can Be Zapped

These are the zappable item groups discovered so far. When you zap an item in the group, it randomly turns into another item of that group. There are only two known exceptions. One is the ring of aggravate monster, the only item that is a member of two groups: the Outfit group Yendorian Finery, and the Equipment group Dungeon of Doom Rings. When zapped, the ring of aggravate monster will only zap into another member of the Dungeon of Doom Rings group. The other exception is the Daily Dungeon Room 10 Items group: if you don't already possess all three keys to The Dungeoneers' Association's gates, then zapping any item in this group will give you a key you don't have.

Here's a short list of groups of things that can't be zapped. To check on individual items, click on the alphabetic link list below (there are too many individual items to list them all here). These are just general guidelines - you never know if there might be an exception to the "rule" until you exhaustively test.

What Can Only Be Obtained By Zapping

Certain items in the game can only be obtained by zapping, as listed below.

When Used

  • From inventory:
    • When the item is not zappable:
      The <item> shudders for a moment, but nothing happens.
    • When the item is zappable:
You zap the <item> with your <wand>.
You acquire an item: <new item>.

followed by:

The <wand> feels a little warm.
or
The <wand> gets really hot. You should probably be careful.
or
The <wand> starts to vibrate. Wisps of smoke rise from the end. You should definitely be careful.
or
The <wand> glows red-hot, and sparks fly out of it. You should seriously be careful.
or
Explosion.gif
The <wand> abruptly explodes, burning your hand pretty badly in the process.
HPYou lose some hit points.
You don't have a <wand> anymore... How sad.
  • Note that if the wand explosion causes you to be Beaten Up, you will be for 4 turns instead of the normal 3.

Notes

  • Before April 16, 2008, ascension was the only way to get a new wand after the last one broke.

References

  • This is a reference to "polypiling" in NetHack where a player would drop unneeded items onto the floor and zap them with a wand (or spell) of polymorph in hopes that the useless items will turn into similar (and less useless) items.
  • The various names of the wands is also a reference to NetHack, where items that aren't yet identified are given these type of names.
