Description Edit

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

Use Edit

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).

Obtaining Edit

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/ine.
  • Before using an unidentified wand, step away from any grass tiles so you don't burn your Hero/ine if it is Firebolt.
