Type Wand
Name Wand of scattershot
Icon Wand of scattershot.png
A magical device which fires powerful blasts of metallic shrapnel. Its damage is strongly reduced by armour.

Fires a volley of metal fragments in a narrow cone with a range of 5. Damage for each projectile is 9d1 to 9d5 and the number of projectiles ranges from 4 to 14. Damage and quantity of projectiles scale with evocations.

Strategy

  • Most of the fragments hit the targeted place.
  • Ineffective to high AC targets, because damage reduction from AC is calculated for each projectile separately.
