Weight 3s
Danger Level 2
Material Wood

Wands of far slaying are wands that, when "z"apped, shoot a bouncing energy ray in any of the eight directions, which causes 1d6 damage per hit. They have a base range of 30 + Level, and they gain 4/3/2 (B/U/C) range for each PP spent when activating them.

Desirability[]

They are useful, but dangerous. It is hard to use the wand indoors and not hit the PC, although it can be used with a low amount of PP to wake up Orb guardians in the elemental temples.

It can be used with an amulet of life saving and a high amount of PP to kill both the PC and monsters, abusing the fact that the PC will be resurrected by the amulet.

Previously (verified in r65-72) the PC was hit for 1d6, while monsters received 1d6+PV damage. This potentially made the wand quite damaging even without an excessive number of bounces.

Guaranteed/Common sources[]

They can be obtained in the same manner as all generic loot.
