ok so im a mage i got this wand from thraelgorr that allows me ot ranged auto attack BUT its stats arent the greatest, now my question is this:

is it worth it to do autoattack on casters or are we better off just getting a higher end ranged item and saying forget it to the autoattack?

The em x4 wand is better than the em x4 symbol. 2 wands drop from first named, that named on the bridge in that statue zone.

edit: ok i looked it up...first named in temple of rallos zek: foundations of stone

but my question is is it worth focusing on getting an auto attack item? is auto attack that big of a dps increase to make it worthwhile?

I havent noticed a significant increase in dps. I mostly took it for better stats. But it may be different for heroic content and I dont do heroic content on that toon so I my answer is I dont know lol.

I have a HM Wand but casting AA does 1/3 to 1/4 of melee AA for me on a training dummy and much less in raid.

I carry it for the few fights where I have to range only, but still prefer to melee if possible.
