Tips & Tricks

  • This wand effectively duplicates the old Throw Flame spell, which was level 2. Use it early: later on, it deals little damage, even with high Evocations.
  • Like other sources of fire, if it crosses a pool of water, it will create a cloud of steam. Use this to take out electric eels or other waterborne creatures, like merfolk. Even at low skill, steam clouds can block vision and deal significant damage.
  • Although it does produce fire, wands of flame are not powerful enough to burn trees.


  • Prior to 0.16, this wand could hold up to 24 charges.
