Useful Info

Zapping a wand of heal wounds gives the same effect as a potion of heal wounds: it heals 9 + 3d(28)/3 HP on yourself or a target. If the player is at full HP, it can heal 2-6 points of rot. Evocations does not increase health healed.

Followers of Elyvilon may use these wands to pacify monsters in the same way they'd use their divine healing abilities (using Evocations instead of Invocations). Strangely enough, at perfectly equal skill levels, the wand of heal wounds has a better pacification success rate than divine healing.

The wand can hold a maximum of 9 charges, and is often found with only 1-3 charges to begin with. Deep Dwarves begin the game with a wand of heal wounds with 5 charges.


Healing is valuable. Sometimes, healing one or multiple times can be your best/only option (such as when waiting on a teleport). A wand of heal wounds allow for more uses of a heal wounds potion.

Very valuable for Mummies, who can't use the potion of heal wounds. Can also repair rot, which reduces dependency on their expensive Self-Restoration ability.
