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, it degrades after 60,000 charges of combat (but loses 2 charges per hit, so has a minimum duration of 5 hours of combat) but can be repaired at Bob in Lumbridge, or at an armour stand.

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.
