Increasing Evocations skill results in the following:

Wand Power

Evoking wands is equivalent of casting spells. The spell will be always be 'cast' (though may be resisted). The power of the spell is 15 + 3.5 * Evocation Skill[1]. This power can be boosted by 33% if you have the MP-Powered Wands mutation.

Other evocable items may have different power scaling; see an item's individual page for details.

Monster Evocations

When monsters wield weapons that are affected by Evocations, they are given skill equal to their HD if they are intelligent, and have no skill otherwise. When monsters attempt to use evocable abilities on jewellery, they succeed 100% of the time, regardless of their effective skill.
