Rod of Negation

Source Ultimate Equipment pg. 183, PRPG Core Rulebook pg. 485
Aura strong varies CL 15th
Slot none; Price 37,000 gp; Weight 5 lbs.


This device negates the spell or spell-like function or functions of magic items. The wielder points the rod at the magic item, and a pale gray beam shoots forth to touch the target device, attacking as a ray (a ranged touch attack). The ray functions as a greater dispel magic spell, except it only affects magic items. To negate instantaneous effects from an item, the rod’s wielder needs to have a readied action. The dispel check uses the rod’s caster level (15th). The target item gets no saving throw, although the rod can’t negate artifacts (even minor artifacts). A rod of negation can function three times per day.


Requirements Craft Rod, dispel magic, limited wish or miracle; Cost 18,500 gp
