[RPG] Do wands provoke attacks of opportunity


In combat, are wands like ranged weapons and susceptible to attacks of opportunity?


Can you use the similar ranged feats to avoid attacks of opportunity, if not are there any?

Just wandering.

Best Answer


  • No, wands don't provoke opportunity attacks like ranged weapons do. Wands are spell trigger items, not ranged weapons, so they don't have anything to do with the rules for ranged weapons and opportunity attacks.

  • No, wands don't provoke opportunity attacks, because the definition of wand says so:

    Wands use the spell trigger activation method, so casting a spell from a wand is usually a standard action that doesn't provoke attacks of opportunity.

As a result, no ranged-weapon feats for opportunity attacks are relevant to wands, and they don't need them to avoid provoking opportunity attacks anyway.
