For the next minute, you know the direction of the nearest creature hostile to you within 60 feet, but not its distance from you.

Wand of the War Magic

Wand of Viscid Globs

Rare (requires attunement)
Crafted by the drow, this slim black wand has 7 charges. While holding it, you can use an action to expend 1 of its charges to cause a small glob of viscous material to launch from the tip at one large or smaller creature within 60 feet of you. Make a ranged attack roll against the target with a bonus equal to your spellcasting modifier (or your Intelligence modifier if you don’t have one) plus your proficiency bonus. On a hit, the glob expands and dries on the target, which is restrained for 1 hour. After that time, the viscous material cracks and falls away.
Applying a pint or more of alchohol to the retrained creature dissolves the glob instantly, as does the application of oil of etherealness or universal solvent. The glob also dissolves instantly if exposed to sunlight. No other nonmagical process can remove the viscous material until it deteriorates on its own.
A restrained creature may attempt to break free by using an action to perform a DC 25 Strength check. On a success, the creature breaks free. On a failure, the DC increases by 5, as the viscous material tightens from the pressure of their struggles, and all critical successes are ignored after the first try.

91-95 A burst of colorful shimmering light extends from you in a 30-foot radius. You and each creature in the area that can see must succeed on a DC 15 Constitution saving throw or become blinded for 1 minute. A creature can repeat the saving throw at the end of each of its turns, ending the effect on itself on a success.
96-97 The target's skin turns bright blue for 1d10 days. If you chose a point in space, the creature nearest to that point is affected.
98-00 If you targeted a creature, it must make a DC 15 Constitution saving throw. If you didn't target a creature, you become the target and must make the saving throw. If the saving throw fails by 5 or more, the target is instantly petrified. On any other failed save, the target is restrained and begins to turn to stone. While restrained in this way, the target must repeat the saving throw at the end of its next turn, becoming petrified on a failure or ending the effect on a success. The petrification lasts until the target is freed by the greater restoration spell or similar magic.
