The magic contained within a Wand of Stinking Cloud is quite volatile, and these items are said to have caused more accidental adventuring deaths than any other arcane item. The foul vapors can unexpectedly overwhelm a party, but the potential danger rarely stops buyers from buying. Dungeon delving is not a calling for the overly cautious.
Wands cannot be equipped to any of your inventory slots. You may assign a wand to your quickslots.
