@Zakalwe I have not played too many wand-characters, but the few i did try didnt have any problem charging any of the rods i found. You may have found some buggy wand. Not sure i have ever found one in a chest before. You can try contacting gaslamp through their email: contact (at) gaslampgames.com and asking them where you should send the save, if you still have it, with steps to reproduce the problem. Did you try using any other wand after getting the buggy one, and then charging any of them?
