Hand of the Mage: This mummified elf hand hangs by a golden chain around a character’s neck (taking up space as a magic necklace would). It allows the wearer to utilize the spell mage hand at will.

Faint transmutation; CL 2nd; Craft Wondrous Item, mage hand; Price 900 gp;Weight 2 lb.

How long does it take for me to use this? Is it just that I move things 15 feet as a move action, or do I first need to use a standard action to activate it?


By the way, this is my first post, thank you for having me on your forum and helping me out guys!

Hi, technically the item is a SRD item, not a BR-specific item, since it lets you cast mage hand I'd use the spell description which states the casting time as a standard action.

No problem, it's on our site so it's fair game!

Unless specified otherwise activating a magic item is a standard action per the RAW (Rules As Written).
