I'm a game designer that's been playing tabletop games since the early '00s. Most of my experience is with the D&D 3/3.5/Pathfinder ruleset, but I've been branching out more in the past few years.

comment Does a White Mage Arcanist need to Use Magic Device to activate a Wand of Cure Light Wounds?
I think you misunderstood my misunderstanding. I'm saying that if being able to cast a spell from an item lets you make a magic item, then being able to cast a spell without a magic item works exactly as well in meeting requirements. The important part is that you can cast the spell, not where you got the ability to cast the spell.

You can already make wands just by being able to cast the spell. The crafting rules say "(although access through another magic item or spellcaster is allowed)". If you can meet a prereq by having a magic item cast the spell, you can certainly meet it by casting the spell yourself.

Aha. Quoting rules from the wrong edition generally gets a lot of downvotes around here. I'd suggest either significantly editing your answer so it addresses 3.5, or deleting it. If you delete it, those downvotes will disappear.

Could you provide a reference to where you're finding this text? The version on the SRD doesn't mention being able to spend an action to move the disk.
