|Wand of the Apprentice
The casting wand is your most basic, but also your most important tool. It is what you use to craft objects, activate blocks like the crucible, and countless other tasks.
It stores a limited amount of magical energy (called vis) that it uses to perform its tasks. As long as there are aura nodes nearby and you are carrying it, the wand will slowly recharge itself.A negative percentage displayed on the wand vis display above the hotbar indicates a discount on most vis costs.

The Wand of the Apprentice is the most basic wand added by Thaumcraft 3. It is used to transform specific blocks or recover active golems.
As the Wand sits in the player's hotbar, it will automatically draw vis from the aura until it reaches it's limit of 50 vis.
Right-clicking on a Table with the Wand will yield a placed Arcane Workbench. This does not consume vis.
Right-clicking on a Cauldron with the Wand will yield a placed Crucible which can be picked up via a pickaxe. This costs 25 vis from the Wand's stored vis.
Right-clicking on active Golems or placed unbreakable magic blocks such as the Warded Stone Blocks or the Arcane Door will cause that item to break and drop itself, so long as it is done by the caster that placed said block.
Right-clicking on a boiling Crucible the caster will release aspects infused into the water into the Aura unless a combination is present that creates an alchemical result, such as Nitor which requires
2. Multiple copies of an item can be created so long as there are enough aspects to create them and the wand has enough vis to supplement recipe. Leftover aspects are released into the aura without an Arcane Alembic.
When the wielder is wearing magical equipment such as the Thaumaturge's Robe a discount is provided to the wand that occurs when the user casts with that wand; for example, when activating blocks such as the Arcane Workbench or the Crucible and when activating a recipe in a Crucible. The applied discounts are visible on the vis storage indicator above the hotbar and stack for each piece of equipment worn by the user. The following discounts are given:
- Goggles of Revealing = -5%
- Thaumaturge's Robe = -2%
- Thaumaturge's Leggings = -2%
- Thaumaturge's Boots = -1%
- Thaumostatic Harness = -3%
