A wand of flame fires flames at an opponent, with a power of 15 + 2.5 * Evocations. An individual wand on the ground can have up to 45 charges. As with all wands, this will merge with other wands of flame when picked up.

Artificers will start with a wand of flame with 15 charges.

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.
  • Although it does produce fire, wands of flame are not powerful enough to burn trees.
  • 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; even at low skill, the steam will block vision while damaging them.

History

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