Combat in Minecraft has long been a mostly melee affair, with the occasional arrow sent flying by a bow that might just be enchanted. With Dr. Cyano’s Wonderful Wands and Wizarding Robes mod, you can convert many of your end-game resources like gold and emeralds into useful and powerful magical robes and magic wands, with the latter providing a wide variety of different spell effects. The robes provide about as much defense as leather armor, but can be heavily enchanted as if they were gold armor and last a long time as if they were iron armor.
As for the wands, that’s really the best part about this mod. The wand of light creates magical torches, eliminating the need to carry stacks of them in your inventory. The wand of growth forces plant growth, even in plants which normally wouldn’t respond to bonemeal, like sugar canes. There’s also a wand of freezing for making passable surfaces over lakes, rivers and even lava pits, as it can freeze water and convert lava into cobblestone. Dr. Cyano’s Wonderful Wands and Wizarding Robes mod adds a lot of new features to Minecraft, but none of the items really break the game or make it unfair; a very fine mod.
