    I've been standing in town casting skills to level them and noticed my wands are taking damage. Is this expected? I'm not actually fighting anyone, although I am casting combat spells like immolation.

    I don't know if it is intentional, but why shouldn't a wand suffer wear when you use it? I think it makes sense.

    All depends on intention. In the world of Harry Potter - wands never decayed (although they could be physically broken). I'm guessing in this world, it would make sense for wands to take damage from physical and magical attacks, but not from use.

    From an immersion (does it make sense in the game world) perspective, I try to see decay as 'wear and tear' - something 'getting old' and needing to fixed or replaced.

    Beyond that, decay is a use-penalty that leads one to have to repair, creating a gold sink or leading one to buy something crafters. Both are good for the game economy. At a practical level, it may not be more logical than that.

    Are you attacking with your wand, or just casting spells? It doesn't make sense for a wand to decay if you don't use it.

    Just casting spells. Was standing in a town and macro'ing overnight in a single user instance to get things to a reasonable base. First time in my life I've ever used macros for a game, but felt the need this time. It is my understanding this wouldn't be useful if the toons had been reset since I wouldn't have ADV points to burn without actually killing something.
