A Wish can sometimes be granted by a friendly Djinni after rubbing a lamp, zapping a Wand of Wishing or dipping (throwing) coins into a fountain. A lamp containing a Djinni will bear the message "The oil seems to last forever".
It is a good strategy to identify all lamps as even cursed ones can grant wishes as long as they are blessed to the Blessed or Uncursed status (by a priest or holy water) and the message "The oil seems to last forever" when identified. Uncursed lamps containing a Djinni are not guaranteed to grant a wish, they may simply thank you for freeing them instead. Blessed lamps will grant wishes. Wishes granted by Djinni are granted immediately and dropped at your feet.A flowing fountain will offer the player three options: “Drink”, “Dip”, or “No” (cancel). Selecting “Dip” will ask the player to select an item from the player’s inventory. The player selects “coins” then selects the number of coins to be dipped in the fountain. Note that dipping coins effectively spends them. If the amount of coins spent is less than the value of the item the message "Not likely for a mere [your offer]" will appear and the wish will not be granted. If enough money to cover the cost of the item is spent, one of two messages will appear. The message "You wonder if wishes ever come true" indicates that enough coins have been spent but the wish was not granted. The message "You wonder if wishes come true" indicates that the wish was granted and the item can be found at a level below the player’s current position.
Wishing for an item not in the game will result in an error and another try. After the second try, a warning is given, "Be careful what you wish for." Three wrong wishes will cause the wish to fail.
[quantity #] [blessed|cursed] [immutable|other prefix modifiers?] [enchantment +3] [name of item (pluralized or not)]
3 blessed immutable +3 red hot pokers
Order is important!
+3 blessed silver dragon scale mail will not work, because the enchantment and dweomery are in the wrong order!
- quantity: You can wish for a maximum of 3. Wishing for more results in 3. You may only wish for one of a Legendary item such as Excalibur since they are unique. Wishing for extras is recommended when possible, for spares or to sell to shopkeepers.
- dweomer: Wishing for
- prefix modifiers:
immutableThis provides fire, rot, and rust proofing but does not prevent armor from being improved with Enchant Armor scrolls.
- suffix modifiers in parentheticals (these appear to have no effect. To prove it, type gibberish in a parenthetical. It will not affect your wish):
largeThis provides large size armor and clothing that the barbarian and vandal may wear.
- enchantment: You may wish for enchantments up to +3. Wishing for a higher enchantment results in +3.
It's unclear which modifiers, and how many, can be applied to which items. It's confirmed that "
blessed immutable" works after the quantity and before the enchantment value on a weapon, i.e. "
3 blessed immutable +3 red hot pokers".

Fountain Wishes - ***WARNING: prices incorrect as of build 1.3!*** Edit
Go to any fountain, choose "Dip" and select a number of coins to dip in. if no water nymph shows up, you'll get a wish interface. Type your wish (check the table below to know what you can wish for). the 4 possible outcomes are:
"You wonder if wishes come true"
Your wish has been created and lies somewhere in the dungeon.
"You wonder if wishes ever come true"
You have 'paid' enough for the item you wished for,but the item will simply not be created. (Seems to be just random chance to keep the fountains from being too powerful)
"Not likely for a mere <your offer>"
You did not offer enough for your wish. You should have another try though (4 tries total). Note that once you have dipped an amount of coins, you can not have them back.
"Even legends do not speak of <your wish>"
The item does not exist, or you did not correctly spell your wish. For legendary weapons, however, this message may appear if the legendary weapon is already located near you, or if you already have it.
General Assumptions :
- price for 1 item = price for 3 items >>> always wish for 3 (even if you don't need 3)
- wish price often seems around 4x the actual cost of the +0 uncursed version of the item (not vendor cost, but the price you see if you get level 3 commerce skill). For example, speed boots are a 30 item, and getting them uncursed +0 is 120, while blessed immutable +3 costs you 140. Typically, blessed adds around 10% and immutable adds around 10% to the cost of the wish. This is not a perfect system, but it should get you very close to the right price. So, try this Z x 1.1 x 1.1 x 4 = wish cost, where Z equals actual value. If you don't want immutable, try Z x 1.1 x 4 = wish cost. This does not hold true for some high value things, like bag of Midas and Amulet of Zaw. Also, the cost increase related to buffs is not clear, but it seems that +0 through +3 cost the same, while -1 does reduce the cost.]
- Neither the type of fountain (blue, red, yellow) nor character stats have an effect on wish prices
- Specifying the size of wished for equip does not seem necessary (barbarians always get large wish equip) Adding "(large) or (large size)" does not seem to affect the result of the wish. In fact, you can type whatever you want in parentheses, and it will have no effect on the wish.
- Adding "immutable" to your wish increases the cost of the wish. If it is something like a scroll, potion, or wand, there is little point in wishing for an immutable version, since you can get it cheaper by wishing for it as a non-immutable item.
- Similarly, it might be cheaper to wish for a cursed version of something, then have it blessed.
Recommended early fountain wishes:
- (3BI for each): Tsurugi of Muramasa (44), Katana of Muramasa (44), feathered hat (44), Speed boots (140), gauntlets of power or dexterity (236), and ornate robe (236). (These prices are incorrect as of build 1.3)

|3BI+3 athame||90||128||1.3||great investment, as its identified value is 454 gold (commerce level 3).|
|3BI+3 long sword||140||?||1.3||251 accepted 1.3|

|Scrolls (immutability is not really worthwhile)|

|3B Spellbook of identify||2444||2445||1.2||2407 was enough if not blessed|

|3 BI mindflayer innards||?||40||1.2||Usually increases intelligence or wisdom on consumption (+1 INT or +1 WIS), a cheap way to increase these stats. Great for spellcasters. (Blessed or Immutable may help, 27 for non-immutable or blessed, 16 works for normal)|
