The Techter's Wand has the capability to deal additional attacks through some of their actions, called Photonic Fury. By casting charged Techniques, the Wand will confer to the corresponding element, allowing additional Elemental Down towards enemies Elemental Weakness. With certain class skills like Wand Lovers, users of the Wand can strengthen their combat capabilities in close range, offering a different playstyle compared to Force Rod.

(Does not occur)
  • Wand Element Pursuit can be used when the gauge is filled to 100.

An additional attack that is made after all but a few of the Wand's attacks.
There are three different types, low, medium, and high, depending on the source of the attack. However, the appearance, power, and range of the Photonic Fury are the same for all types.

  • The Photonic Fury itself has some range, which slightly compensates for the Wand's short reach.
  • Photonic Fury can also deal damage to nearby enemies when it hits onto one enemy.
    • This also helps increasing gauges for both Wand Element Pursuit and Photon Blast at a faster rate.
  • Photonic Fury can charge Compound Techniques at a slightly faster rate than uncharged Techniques.
    • When fighting against bosses, the gauge increase is 3 times as normal.
  • Although at a low amount, it has a unique property of accumulating both Physical and Elemental Down via Wand attacks and Photonic Fury. However, the Elemental Down value is generally much less than a charged Technique.

Normal Attacks

Photonic Fury 60 60 + 60
PP Recovery 10 10 13 5 + 15

Swing around the Wand at close range. Wand Attack Extra adds the 4th attack, ending off with a photon charged slam. Wand Arts Skip Attack allows you to skip to the 3rd Normal Attack.

Normal Attacks

  • Every string of the Normal Attack will produce a Photonic Fury, dealing additional damage.
    • Has slightly slow attack speed and reach, but on the ground you move forward at a reasonable speed and distance, slightly less so in the air.
  • NA3 has a forward auto-guard.
    • NA4 has an auto-guard in all directions for the first hit and a forward auto-guard for the second hit.
  • By learning Wand Element Change, you can change the Element of the Photonic Fury by casting a charged Technique.
    • Photonic Fury with elements attached will have an Elemental Down value.
    • Without any elements, the Wand's initial element (non-elemental = Physical Down) will occur.
  • During Wand Lovers, an auto-guard is added at the beginning of NA1 and NA2.
    • Using these guard points, including those originally attached to NA3 and NA4, also activates Wand Guard Reflection.
    • Learning Wand Lovers Line Force, the potency of all parts inceases by (+5), motion speed, and homing capabilities are given during the effect, providing excellent mobility.

PP Recovery 0 20 20 + 8 20

Holds the Wand in front of you to guard against attacks for a short period of time. Allows you to move a short distance while using the Weapon Action.


  • Has a guard point from all directions that allows for immediate action after usage.
    • Successfully guarding via Weapon Action renders you invincible until the motion ends.
  • Due to the safety net of the Parry, you can chain multiple Parrys one after another, allowing you to guard through multiple attacks in a row.

Wand Guard Reflection

  • Enables a Photonic Fury when successfully defending with Parry and various guard points.
    • Has the same elements as Normal Attacks. Similarly, the element changes with Wand Element Change.
    • Has the property of an additional attack that deals Photonic Fury at the locked on target.

Wand Parry Counter

  • Enables a counter attack after successfully parrying by pressing Normal Attack.
    • If you counter while Wand Lovers Line Force is in effect, vertical enemy tracking is added.
    • Learning Wand Parry Counter Advanced will make you send a shockwave when making a counter attack. The wand hit will be reduced in power in exchange for a high-powered shockwave.
      • Photonic Fury only occurs on the wand hit portion of the Parry Counter, not the shockwave.

Wand Element Pursuit

  • Enables a special move when you press and hold the Weapon Action button while you have an element set to the Wand and the gauge is full. Releases the element held in the wand to send off an explosion at the enemy.
    • Don't forget to cast a charged Technique again to regain the element on your wand afterwards.

Sidestep Counter 420(+60) 15
Dash Attack 280 15

  • Dive Attack: Nearly the same across all weapons. Dive deals damage to nearby enemies and restores no PP, and is mainly used to reach the ground faster.

Photon Blast

Charges up photons into the wand to then dash towards the enemy and release multiple swings, ending in a heavy downward smash.

  • The attack will not track well against highly mobile targets.
    • The attack will initially track in a straightforward line towards the target, but will stay in position once the attack starts.
  • Has a slightly wide hitbox.
  • Builds both Physical and Elemental Down.
  • Like all Photon Blasts, you are invincible during its animation.
  • Potency Notation: Deals 400% x 6 hits (Wand swings) + 2100% (smash).
