Virtus wand detail

The Virtus wand is a magic weapon that is part of the Virtus set. Wielding it requires level 80 Magic. The wand was released with the Evolution of Combat, and is dropped exclusively by Nex in the God Wars Dungeon.

It is the third-strongest wand outside of Daemonheim, only below the seismic wand and seasinger kiba. As of 7 January 2014, the wand and book degrade after 10 hours of combat, in a similar fashion to other Virtus equipment, and will also protect against the God Wars Dungeon followers.

When received with CoinShare active, the Virtus wand will be dropped as 120 Virtus wand shards split evenly among the players and sent directly to their banks. 120 shards can be combined to create this item.

It costs 1,000,000 to repair the wand on an armour stand with 100 Smithing, or it can be repaired by Bob in Lumbridge for 2,000,000.
