Special Recharges Vis using LP

Blood Rod is only available if both Blood Magic and Forbidden Magic installed. It is a rod for wand and can be capped with any caps. Capping with Alchemical Cap is most recommended. It has one special ability: it can restore the charge by draining LP from owner's network. 1 vis costs 1000 LP, with Alchemical Cap the cost is lowered to 900 LP. Will drain carrier's health points if not enough LP in network or the network is frozen by Rapier of the Strix. Provides a storage for 100 of each kind of vis.

Thaumonomicon Entry[edit]

"You've created a bridge between Thaumaturgy and Alchemical Wizardry. The Blood Wand can store up to 100 vis and will gradually fill itself using Life Points.

The wand will bind itself to the first person to pick it up. As long as the rod is empty, it will try to fill itself using LP from its' owner's network. If there are not enough Life Points to fuel it, it will resort to drawing health to whoever is carrying it, but this conversion is less efficient. If it has no LP to draw from and its holder falls below three hearts, the wand stops charging itself.

The infusion process alone isn't enough to complete a Blood Wand. Once the Inert Blood Rod has been infused, it must be imbued with life essence in a Blood Altar to be completed."
