This should be a simple one...

Has anyone seen any "small" scepters, or "weapons" that could resemble a "wand"? I really dont like the way the scepters look in game (as well as the focuses too) so I was looking for "appearance gear".

I'm looking for anything that could have its appearance transmuted.
Going pink Asuras, or going home. (Even the male ones)

Nope didn't see any traditional "wands" so far.
I have a picture or my charr guardian wielding a cool blue lightning axe-like wand, but that's not exactly what you meant I guess? :)

It's possible they're saving wands for a future expansion. We haven't seen scythes or spears yet either, and 2-handed axes are planned to be in an expansion.

OP meant scepters that are not so overdone but more wand-like. :)

"Twigs"?

Is that some type of weapon or crafting material? I searched but I couldnt find anything.

The closest thing I found we're really low level scepters that resembled "twigs" but the in game graphic was still quite huge.

I think he is talking about environmental weapons like branches that you can pick up off the ground.

They pulled wands from the game after they could not balance Avada Kadavra. The Scepter is is close as you are going to get.

I think OP is looking for scepters that are smaller and kinda look like wands.

I'm not sure I completely understand the difference between a scepter and a wand, especially since what were called "wands" in gw1 are called "scepters" in gw2.  Is it just a size difference, or does each weapon have a distinct design?
Otherwise, the database shows that there are two scepters with "wand" in their name, being the wayward wand from HoM and the alpine wand.

Perhaps OP could post a picture from another game that shows what a wand should look like?

Wands would've been cool.
I can't really like Scepters without there being any cool skins to wield. Also the Scepter animations aren't really that great compared to other weaponry.=/

Actually a scepter's definition is that of a symbol of office or a ceremonial item.

It can encompass a range of sizes from staff length to, yes, rods as short as magic wands.
It gives more leeway for item designers to create scepter models.

The cloesest I have seen in any game so far is a Bone Spiral Rod in GW1.
