Player use

A wand of acid fires a Corrosive Bolt of acid, dealing damage and possibly corroding any creatures in its path. It has a power rating of 15 + 5*Evocations/2 and can hold at most 15 charges.

Monster use

When utilized by a monster, the power rating is 30 + (monster Hit Dice).

Strategy

Wands of acid provide a powerful backup attack. Few monsters are resistant to acid and the bolt's corrosive properties make followup melee attacks more effective.
