Allows you to learn the slow monster spell, which has the same effect as a Wand of slow monster.
This is an excerpt from Spl1-343.txt:
Zap monster Edit
The monster becomes slow, or normal speed if fast. If you are engulfed by a vortex or air elemental, you are expelled. Some monsters may resist.
"You disrupt <monster>! A huge hole opens up..." (expelled) "<Monster> seems to be moving slower." (slowed, not swallowed)
Zap self Edit
If you currently have the speed intrinsic, it is lost.
"You slow down" (not wearing speed boots) "Your quickness feels less natural." (wearing speed boots)
