And to be honest, we're not terribly concerned that mashing Attack and Shoot will give you a modest damage increase. It's only an improvement at level 1 until level 2 where you get your first nuke. It's not like you can walk up and solo Vicktor Stormscar like that.

I'd encourage folks to experiment with it. If you take a common hit from the 2.5s bolt (350-400, with 20+ ability points and 300+ sp contributing) you get a dps of 140-160 which is a lot higher than the level 50 green wand drop at 100dps. However once that spell is pushed back once (-1s I believe?) you approach parity - 100-115dps. And once it's been pushed back twice the wand seems to be winning by a good margin of 100dps vs 78-90dps. The highest damage wand looks to be 120dps though very rare.
Certainly it seems like wands may be the best choice for anyone not speced for dps and push back reduction, or perhaps even if you are.

I use a wand after my normal rotation (Darkside, Touch of Hatred, Word of Harming, wand...) They are usually dead by then
Same here, I try to get atleast 1 hit in with my wand so i keep skilling it up (ever so slowly).
And good info to know that the Mace and Wand skills up my spell damage... looks like I have some studying to do! Haha
