Wands play a big role in a lot of fantasy universes. Unfortunately for wand fans, Minecraft is not one of those universes, and that’s a problem that the Magic Wands and Wizarding Robes Mod wants to solve.
The Magic Wands and Wizarding Robes Mod does exactly what you think it does: adds magic wands and robes to the game.
These magic wands can perform all sorts of different things. Here are all of the wands included in this mod:
-Nonmagical Wand: Does absolutely nothing “but looks pretty neat”.
-Wand of Growth: Grows plants like bonemeal. The Wand of Growth can also make moss grow on cobblestones and even affect plants that don’t usually respond to bonemeal.
-Wand of Harvesting: Harvests crops and plants in a large area, which is particularly useful when collecting apples from trees.
-Wand of Mining: Instantly mines a stone with a single click. The only catch is that the stone must be breakable with a stone pickaxe. This will not work on wood or other non-mining materials.
-Wand of Freezing: Allows players to make bridges over rivers by freezing water with the flick of a wand.
-Wand of Healing: Tosses a splash potion that instantly heals the affected area/target.
-Wand of Ender Step: This wand throws an ender pearl upon use.
-Wand of Fireballs/Wand of Magic Missiles: Throws magic missiles and/or fireballs.
-Wand of Death: Summons and launches wither skulls at enemy players and has the ability to kill a creeper with a single shot.
All of these mods are designed for mid-game to late-game use as they require diamonds, emeralds, and other valuable items.
Meanwhile, players also have access to a bunch of new robes and magical-themed hats. All robes have a similar theme: they protect players less but offer better enchantability, which means they may ultimately be more powerful than a good set of diamond armor.
One particularly cool feature of this mod are the hats. Players can now craft witches’ hats and wizards’ hats. These hats will take on the properties of whatever potion you’re drinking – permanently. Craft the hat, put it on, drink a potion, and that hat will permanently give players the effect of that potion. It’s very useful.
There’s also a top hat for no apparent reason, because it does nothing. You can use it with the nonmagical wand to walk around doing absolutely nothing, I guess.
These mods are actually two separate mods but they’re made by the same person (DrCyano) and have the same general magic theme. Both mods are easy to install and can be downloaded from the same place.
