Icon Wand of quicksilver.png
A magical device which fires a beam of destructive energy, dispelling enchantments on creatures struck.

The wand of quicksilver fires a Quicksilver Bolt. This is a powerful, somewhat inaccurate bolt, which ends all dispellable effects when it hits.

Players will deal 6d(4.16 + 3.5 * Evocations/9) damage with this wand.[1] Players have a to-hit of 10.6 + (3.5 * Evocations)/25.[2]

Monsters will deal 3d(7 + (30 + HD)/14) damage with this wand.[3]

It is mutually exclusive with the wand of acid and wand of light. When compared to acid and light, the wand of quicksilver has more range (7 tiles), and deals slightly more damage
