Allows you to learn the charm monster spell. This spell has the same effect as an uncursed scroll of taming, turning nearby monsters into pets. Even if you cast the spell correctly, monsters have a chance of resisting it, increasing with the monster's MR and decreasing with your level.

This is an excellent spell to use against strong monsters attacking you when you are at medium/low health. Not only does it get rid of one enemy, but you'll have a new pet who can fight for you (and who you can hide behind.) If you're willing to put up with the obnoxiousness of changing levels with many pets (or you have a magic whistle,) marching around with an army of soldier ants at your side will make many fights significantly easier.
