The Torch is a passive spell. It activates immediately upon being placed in a wand and stays active until that wand is de-selected. It does not interact with your other spells and modifiers in the wand at all.
A flame appears at the tip of the wand, lighting up your surroundings and allowing you to see further.
It costs no mana to maintain and will light combustible materials on fire when touched.
Like all Passive spells, it will add one extra "draw" to the cast. If they are placed at the end of a wand they can be used for wrapping.
- As it's basically a free spell, you won't lose anything by using it. That is, other than the fact you may accidentally light something on fire you didnt intend to (like Oil or Whiskey)..
