|Oil of rust removal ( ! )|
Oils of rust removal are Potions that, when drunk, poison the player. When thrown at a rust monster they remove the monster's ability to rust objects; given the rarity of these potions, though, this is usually a waste.
The main use of an oil of rust removal is to dip items in them, which will remove any rust on the item. A blessed potion will actually make a non-rusted item rustproof. A cursed potion will instead rust the item.
Note that an oil of rust removal always appears as a white potion when unidentified; the PC does not have to drink it to learn about its (nasty) effects, rather can safely start dipping rusty items in a white potion whenever they find one.
They are useful to most players, to remove rust from weaponry and armor obviously. Many prefer to rustproof their powerful iron-made items to protect them from water traps. Of course, they are not very desirable to drink.
