|A wand created from the wood of Sprite trees. Seems to be poorly calibrated, though.|
|Damage||10–290 (average: 150)|
|Projectile Speed||18 tiles/second|
This wand shoots in a wavy pattern, much like the Doku No Ken, but at a much higher level. It is potentially a very powerful wand, as it can possibly land hits that do the maximum damage of the Sword of Acclaim.
With its wavy pattern, the Sprite Wand is harder to aim than a normal wand. It is not recommended for use against fast-moving enemies (where accuracy is more important than normal) or if you have poor aim.
The inconsistent nature of this weapon is its greatest strength. Although the minimum damage is 10, its high damage range gives it the potential to deal more damage than other wands, with its average DPS in between the Wand of Ancient Warning and the Wand of Recompense. Any wand class with max Attack and Dexterity can easily abuse the RNG nature of this wand. If used in a group with other players buffing you, the max damage of the wand soars to 15-435. If at least 5 shots hit above 250 (which is not hard when Berserk and Damaging are applied), a player can easily make up for the occasional 20-100 damage shots.
Understandably, because of its heavy reliance on RNG, many players find this wand unappealing.
Many players see this wand as a gimmick item, and in most ways it is. It is a very niche item, used best for godlands with lots of targets to hit, or on stationary bosses. This should never be used for a main weapon, and is best served as a DPS centered swap-out, but only when certain conditions are met, as mentioned previously.
As one last example of this weapon’s viability. Think Of the Spirit Dagger. In any and every way people would use or compliment the Spirit Dagger, It can be applied to the sprite wand in every way. And many many players would use the spirit dagger over the T12 dagger. Yet strangely perhaps for the shot pattern or accessibility of the dagger. People dont look twice at this wand.
