Taratol also has electricity immunity, which can be very valuable as a swap. Pazuzu in particular becomes a trivial target. But also blue dragon pits are easy, with no risk to wands or rods.

Taratol might become useful, but the weight - 20 pounds - is a killer for combat so it's going in the house for now. It's hard not to lose speed.

I have a wand of slow monster and a staff of slow monsters. If there's a group of sleeping monsters and I use the staff, it'll aggro them right?

It'll wake them up, and slow some a little. It won't actually aggravate them.

What's the difference between wake them up and aggravate them? Won't it cause them to attack?

Aggravate wakes up all monsters in a 200' radius, not just in LOS. Shriek is even worse: it's a 400' radius, and LOS monsters are basted as well.
Edit: fixed radii

It seems to me in the feature branch that "slow" no longer wakes up the monster. Don't know if that was intended.

So, it's the same thing - you're using 'aggravate' to refer to a larger area.

So, if I use 'slow monsters', I'll have them all attack...

Unless this is right, and they won't.

Deciding whether to keep a staff of slow monsters.
