Please Add Wands

Playing a Mage the only way to use Catalysts is to use Pistols which makes Mages much less Mage like,

Please give us Wands that are on par with Pistols so there is a Mage weapon that can take advantage of Catalysts.

Strongly agree. I think in general the Spellcasters item loadouts need to enable dual weilding of wands/catalyst. We can't even weild a Catalysts and a shield which ideally should be Wands and Shields but for now without going through the development of that I would accept some sort of Catalyst & Shield combo.

Also Staff in general in the low-tier rolls hardly roll consistent damage on them for ailments. aother thing to look at I hope.

Some 1H caster weapon would be good, but I don't wanna see staves die out.. Sadly, I' dont remember seeing any game that has managed to strike a good balance between staves and a combination of two 1H caster items. Two 1H items mean more stats/bonuses, more sockets, more unique properties/effects etc. why would anyone bother using a staff, a single item, when they can use two items? Unless both options (staff vs. two 1H items) have their own specific, unique mechanism that supports a different playstyle, it just boils down to more stats vs. less stats, more damage vs. less damage, making items simply cosmetics, without any meaningfull difference between them. I don't think it's impossible to do this right, it just needs some extra creativity instead of just tweaking a few numbers, hoping to fit everything into the same box..

This should have been in from the get go.

Staffs ricochet and shoot slowly, so wands should shoot quicker and maybe do small DoT or something. Or any ailment you do could last 1.5x longer or do 1.5x amount of its damage in its normal timeframe.

That alone may change the playstyle a bit for balanced gameplay. Want a more powerful Ailment/DoT build? play wands/catalyst. Want more projectiles and ricocheting? Use staff.

Staff with double projectile node and +3 ricochet node (on top of its 2 bounce already makes 5 ricochets) and then 4th combo attack with 500% dmg muliplier passive node (which shoots 4 projectiles to bounce 5 times) is a beast to be respected.
