The master wand is a wand that requires 60 Magic to wield. It can be obtained either by exchanging pizazz points at the Mage Training Arena or through purchase from another player. Purchasing the master wand from the Mage Training Arena requires 240 Telekinetic, 240 Alchemist, 2400 Enchantment, and 240 Graveyard points, as well as a teacher wand to upgrade from. This can take up to 15-16 hours to complete from scratch.

The master wand is equal to the grifolic wand in terms of stats and requirements; the latter is much cheaper, costing only 44,973 coins.

If casting with a staff, one's spell damage is increased according to the staff, but cast speed is lower compared to a wand. If casting with a wand then one's spell damage is 100%, and cast speed is unaffected. When dual casting one's cast speed is doubled, but spell damage is reduced to 75%. The cost of runes can be offset by using a tome of frost for unlimited water runes for water spells.

Using a wand also allows the use of a shield, which can be useful in boss fights where extra armour and life points is needed to save food and take less damage, in comparison to only using a staff which does not allow the use of a shield. A mage can use a wand and take full advantage of shield abilities such as Rejuvenate to heal, Reflect to deflect 50% of damage, Debilitate to reduce damage received, and Resonance to heal damage on the next attack received. Ultimate abilities such as Barricade can completely block all damage for 10 seconds and Immortality can reduce damage received by 25% for 30 seconds, making a wand a much better choice for allowing one to use these abilities to mage tank.

  • update 20 November 2012 (Update):
    • The 10% magic magic damage has been removed from the Master wand. The wand now has a magic critical hit bonus instead.
  • update 2 September 2009 (Update):
    • As staves are no longer required for autocasting, we have granted some of the more special ones the ability to cause 10% more magic damage. Master wand is among the staves given this bonus.
