Blink and You

Blink is a mutation that gives you two new and magical commands, Blink and Blink <area>.

The regular Blink command teleports you to a random tile in HellMOO that is not blink blocked (such as most apartment complexes). It is recommended to have at least 20 focus to use this command consistently.

The Blink <area> command teleports you to a random tile in the area you specified (if it isn't blink blocked), with the accuracy depending on a focus roll. It is recommended to have at least 30 total focus if you want to use this effectively.

You can also only blink into outdoor tiles.

Dangers of Blinking

Blinking, although an extremely fast method of travel, can be very dangerous! If you were to blink into a tile that another person or NPC is standing in, you will telefrag (explode and die). Cocoons will still work to save your items, but you will lose any implants this way, unless you have silicone skin.

Another danger of blinking is the common misblink, or blinking into an undesired location. Some undesired locations are: the sky, the ocean, the Necropolis El track, and many, many other fun places.

Mutating Blink gives Phaser a chance to misblink instead of working properly.

Successful blinking leaves psi shimmers at both the tile you leave from and the one you arrive at.
