A wand of magic missiles, also sometimes called a wand of magic missile, was an uncommon magical item, that was capable of firing magic missiles.
Description[edit | edit source]
These wands could cast magic missiles, with up to seven charges, before potentially crumbling to ash. The user could also use the wand to release more magic missiles, but this would result in more charges being used up.
At dawn, two to seven charges (the maximum amount) would be replenished.
History[edit | edit source]
A popular theory among many was that the first wizard inventor of a wand of magic missiles was drawn and quartered for the crime of making magic accessible to the masses. Most wizards, sorcerers, and historians dismissed this bit of lore with a scoff.
