|0011706||[DCSS] Bug Report||minor||always||2018-10-11 11:32||2018-10-11 11:34|
|Status||new||Product Branch||0.22 development branch|
|Summary||0011706: Little-known and misleading behaviour with polymorph on ugly things, shapeshifters, undead|
Using a wand of polymorph on a (very) ugly thing will force it to change colour, without an MR check. However the game still displays a chance of success message before firing the wand.
Similarly using polymorph on a shapeshifter will always force it to shapeshift, but again the MR check is listed, even if the monster is known to be a shapeshifter.
Both of these interactions are cool and flavourful, but it appears not many people know about them, possibly because this information is not written anywhere in the game itself. I suggest adding at least some info both on the description of the wand, and of the monsters.
Polymorph also fails on most (or all?) undead, but again a chance of success is listed. Related to 0010659.
