  • When having multiple Magic Stick icon.png Magic Stick-based items in the inventory, only the oldest one will gain charges from cast abilities. If it is full, the second oldest one starts to gain charges.
  • Upon upgrading a Magic Stick into a Magic Wand, all its current charges are carried over.
    • Upon upgrading a Magic Wand into a Holy Locket, all its current charges are carried over.


Recommended Heroes[edit]

Necrophos icon.png
  • During Ghost Shroud, the ability increases all restoration on Necrophos by 75%, providing a very cost efficient burst heal with Energy Charge throughout his laning stage and the game.

Others[edit]

  • Fragile support heroes who purchased a Magic Stick icon.png Magic Stick in the early game will usually upgrade it to a Magic Wand.
  • Roaming gankers who provoke a lot of nearby spellcasting gain a lot of early charges, quickly filling up the Magic Wand.
  • Heroes with a higher than average Armor or Magic Resistance benefit more than most from a reusable burst heal.
    • Medusa minimap icon.png Medusa is a notably strong Magic Wand user, as her mana can be used as effective HP, and if she runs out of mana, Magic Wand can be used to restore enough mana to cast Mystic Snake, gaining further mana.

Tips[edit]

  • Magic Wand allows you to get a quick burst of healing in dire situations, or to use one last ability in a fight. Even during the midgame, when the boost is less noticeable, a Magic Wand can still save your life if you are in danger.
  • The Magic Wand makes an excellent item against heroes that spam abilities while in the lane, as the charges can help to mitigate damage you take, or to cast more of your own abilities.
  • The Iron Branch icon.png Iron Branches needed to build Magic Wand are common to buy early on in the game, giving a suitable route of making a cost effective build, and emptying up the inventory space without having to sell items.
