Eye of the Beholder reference. In that game, there's a location where you can identify all your items.

Oh, sorry, unfortunately I never played this series ;(

@Nick: Yup, that's a logical solution. Although I still wonder why no mage ever invented an "ID-every-item-spell" but gladly I'm not a mage in Angband ;D

In nethack there's a really easy way to identify all your items :-)

The one that's killing me in the early game is scroll of deep descent. I've almost given up on reading scrolls until I'm up a few levels.

I buy a magic mapping scroll along with phase door and clw for exactly this occasion. Usually when you descend, reading a map will find a staircase.

At worst just read recall straight away. You don't have to wait till descent kicks in. As long as you have the gold for a new recall scroll & don't mind starting back at dlvl 1 then deep descent is harmless.

Or you can consider it an opportunity for fast level gain. It's especially fun as a mage. Detect like crazy, then search for a higher-level weak monster--especially a wolf, while avoiding everything else. BOOM! Cl 8 with a couple magic missiles and flasks of oil.
