A Manipulator's Table which specializes armor for wand users
Wands are weapon type that are specialized to be used with armor crafted at a Manipulator's Table. Apart from the Ferozium Wand, they are not crafted, but can be found as procedurally generated weapons on Tier 3 and higher Planets and Missions.

Wands are ranged weapons, requiring very high energy. Each wand has a unique effect when used, much like a 'spell' being cast.

For all wand weapons, the mouse cursor changes to a red crosshair when equipped. After holding down the mouse button to charge the weapon the cursor will turn green provided it is within line of sight. When the cursor is green the mouse button can be released to detonate the wand attack/ability.

Wands are functionally the same as staffs, but because they're one handed don't have any secondary abilities available. The trade off is that they can be dual wielded, unlike staffs.

Primary Attacks

Wand primary abilities are offensive attacks which deal elemental damage. Like all wand abilities, players must be within range and line-of-sight of their target to use the ability. Though otherwise identical to staff primary abilities, wand primary abilities only deal half of the damage dealt by their staff equivalents; however, they also have half the energy cost of their staff equivalents.
