  • 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. It is very versatile, and never a bad item to have.
  • In addition, the Iron Branches needed to build the 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.

Additional information

Recommended heroes

  • 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 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.



Magic Wand (also known as Wand) is an Upgrade item listed in the Common section of the Home Shop, that can give heroes an instant burst of health and mana. It is built from Magic Stick, 2 Iron Branches, and a Circlet.

As an upgrade of Magic Stick, it provides provides the same functionality but adds 7 more maximum charges over its components. The Magic Wand is among the most cost efficient items in the game; it has an easy item build up and can offer more survivability than a Bracer with enough charges.

Charges are generally best saved and used at critical moments rather than used simply to sustain a hero. The exception to this advice is when laning against Batrider or Zeus, heroes rely on spamming certain abilities for lane control, making charges abundant for use in lane.
