Much like the Ars Magic Mod, the Magic Wands Mod for Minecraft will allow players to become mages, wielding powerful magic to defeat enemies and improve their strongholds. Unlike many other magic mods for minecraft the magic wands mod only requires that you have the recipe for the respective wand and or magical piece of clothing and that's it.
The first wand you can make is somewhat disappointing and is called the Nonmagical Wand. And just like it’s name, well… it does nothing magical at all. It’s just a very bad beat down weapon.
However, the second wand is the Wand of Fireballs which is a huge step up from the Nonmagical Wand. This will be your first magical wand and, fairly obviously, it cast gigantic searing fireballs at foes with quite a large blast radius. All of the wands provided by the mod require a gold nugget and a stick as well as some additional material (in the case of the Wand of Fireballs that something is two fire charges). The harder the wand is to make, the stronger it’s effects will be (generally speaking).
Once you have created a wand, to access it’s magical powers all you have to do is hold back on your right click button. You can single click the right mouse to fire off a single shot or hold down to fire a steady barrage of magic and might. However, be careful because all of the magical wand’s special abilities utilize the item’s durability and when it goes to zero will need repaired. So keep that in mind!
