Disambiguous This article is about the weapon. For the action of "wanding", see Wand (action).

General

A wand is a right handed, projectile weapon that can require one of a variety of Monk, Mesmer, Elementalist, Necromancer, or Ritualist attributes.

Wands are the one-handed alternative to two handed Staff in combination with a left hand Focus Item. The discussion of whether a wand/focus combo or a staff is superior is as old as the game itself: each has its boons and drawbacks.

Rods and scepters are considered wands.

Inherent stats

  • Ranged weapon
  • Minimum damage range: 3-5
  • Maximum damage range: 11-22
  • Damage type: Depends on linked attribute. Possibilities: Cold, Earth, Fire, Lightning, Chaos, Dark, or Holy. (See wand types below for details.)
  • Range: Recurve Bow range (~1.2 aggro circle radii; equivalent to standard casting range; not affected by height, unlike bows)
  • Attack interval: 1.75 seconds
  • Arc size: Small
  • Projectile flight time: ~0.6 seconds at Shortbow range.

Wands with an attribute requirement of 0 have been observed with damage ranges as high as 7-11. Wands with maximum damage from collectors and weaponsmiths always have an attribute requirement of 9.

Wands dropped in Nightfall can be upgraded with a Wand Wrapping and an inscription.
