Hello, Wizards! It's another 7 days closer to summer, and it's also time for another Feedback Friday. What a great day!

Today, let's talk about wands. Do you have a favorite wand you stitch over and over to retain its appearance? If so, which one is it? If not, what wand are you currently using?

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone! Enjoy the sun, I know I certainly will!

Here is an idea kingsisle should make two dagger/sword (assassin style) wand. When you run there also should be an option between carrying it in hands or on the back (crossed).

Reply if you think its a good idea or not so good

Thank you

Favorite wand, effects: Fire Iron Hasta. Just can't beat +10% universal damage.
Favorite wand, appearance: Reliquary Blade. Despite the name, this thing looks like a big hammer, which seems cool to me.

I'm running a level 50 storm, so there are no doubt cool higher level wands I haven't seen yet.

I don't have much crowns, so I don't use them on stitching items. But when I have lots of crowns and could, my favorite wand to use for an apperance would definately be the Sword of Kings.

I don't always stitch to the same thing, but I usually like a wand or staff, not a sword or other weapon. Likewise, i want a robe, cloak, or cape, not armor. I'm a wizard using magic, not hacking things with blades. I'd love more nice looking staffs and wands.

Two exceptions: my Norse Ice wiz (broadsword or axe), and my big life who was a cavalry medic and wears a uniform & saber. Yes, I have a story & theme for every char - part of the fun.

When Ninja101 comes out, I'll gladly carry a Katana ;) and a Claymore for Knight101

Generally, I like to use the Steelwielder's Mineblade for stitching or, if I have the tickets to buy it, the low tier wand available from Brandon Mistborn.

Yes, I most definitely do have a favorite appearance wand for my Balance. The colors I choose to represent balance are; light purple, tan, and black. I was always looking for a wand with the purple balance shimmer until I found Goldenbeak. Goldenbeak has been stitched to SO many wands including the hades staff and the max level crowns attack wands, but it started before that. It really adds something special and a little more unique to my look and even play. Same goes for my favorite death wand, The Umbra Blade. I love the look and the colors for my Death wiz. Sadly, my myth wiz has not really found that perfect wand. My wizards are always looking for something cool to stitch and we have also stitched the viridian charged wand to a glowing jade blade and the root of spring to a cool clover staff. Haha, the list Does go on. Changing the appearance of the wizard definitely adds to the game for me and my kids.

I would have to say that I really like bows, especially for the wand attack. Maybe an update to stitching that will cause the wand attack's animation to be based on the appearance, rather than the stats?

I any that has some cool animation of smoke/fire/shadows/sparkles coming off of it, but I also love the lute wands. I just feel awesome using those :) the aquilan gladius and shield is also very cool.

It depends on the look of my wizard. My ice is in the Guardian's Outfit, so he uses the Umbra Blade look. My death is using Terminus. My myth is going for the old-timey wizard, and uses Staff of Legends appearance. Depends on the wizard.

I haven't really stitched my wands yet, but my hat and shoes are commonly stitched and unstitched to the "Cha-Cha" and "Pop's O'Leary Shoes"

I'm using my frosty stare tiki torch for the stats, and my unkind axe of winter for the appearance. (Myth )

Thanks everyone! I'll pass this along to the staff. New Feedback Friday shortly!

The lightning bolt is one of my favorites too, on internal servers, that's a permanent fixture on one of my testing characters! ::grin::
