Magic is a centerpiece of fantasy. Whether one is born with it or acquires it through sorcery or some other object, it and the genre are inseparable. Two of the most popular ways to incorporate magic into a story is via a magic wand or a magic ring. But which one would you want?
Perhaps you're a simple person. You don't want to bother spending hours and hours poring over the daunting magic wand user manual. Plus, you hate the idea of carrying around that hideous wand everywhere--you like fashion-forward magic. The magic ring is for you. Though rings are typically limited in that they usually only have one or two abilities, you can pick out the perfect one for you at the local Jared (20% percent off every Valentine's!), from invisibility rings to rings that transport you across dimensions.
But maybe you're dissatisfied with the confines of one or two abilities that rings afford. Plus, you could care less about the size and look of the wand--you're the type who prefers functionality over appearance. The magic wand is for you. Each one is different, so you'll have to memorize all the spells, from "Bibbity boppity boo" to "Alakazam!" But, with unmatched flexibility, the magic wand is the perfect option for those seeking to expand their magical knowledge.
