Wand of Firebolt
This wand unleashes bursts of magical fire. It will ignite flammable terrain, and will damage and burn a creature it hits.


Shooting an enemy with this wand will deal damage on impact and set it on fire.
Enemies will take 1-5 damage per turn while on fire.
The wand can also be used on flammable tiles for different purposes.

The Firebolt will also burn a line from the caster to its target, igniting any flammable terrain in its path (such as grass tiles).


The Wand of Firebolt can be found randomly in generated levels. A random wand has a 15/113 or 13.27% chance of being the Wand of Firebolt


Firebolt zap

  • Don't use the wand if the enemy is on a water tile because this will extinguish the fire immediately, and as a result, you will cause less damage overall.
    • Flying enemies are the exception; they don't touch the water, so there is no way they can extinguish the fire.
  • You can use the wand on barricades if you're not sure which potion is the Potion of Liquid Flame or if you haven't found it on the depth.
  • You can use the wand to cook Mystery Meat. Just put the meat either on a flammable tile like grass, a door, or put it next to a wall and cast the wand.
  • Do not use the wand in gardens as these rooms are filled with grass and the fire could easily kill your Hero.
  • Before using an unidentified wand, step away from any grass tiles so you don't burn your Hero if it is Firebolt.
