A Racket is a Pseudo Weapon in which have are favorable to all front supporters against ranged attackers. Rackets function similarly to Reflect and Bounce status, but to return the projectiles, they must be swung at the right moment.
Rackets are classified both as Melee and Ranged weapon. Rackets have similar attack power with the Daggers, but usually deals critical hit when returning a projectile. Each rackets can be use to deflect projectiles, but not all of them can return them back when swung.
Racket's melee attack power is determined by the user's Unarmed Attack and Dexterity against the target's Defense and Evade.

Charge-Wands are generally the strongest Wand-type there is. They does not release any energy when swung. The must be charged so that the energy can be emitted. Upon stopping on the charge-up, the energy will be shoot. The velocity and power of the energy is greater based on how long the charge-up is. Charge-Wands homing capability is based on how great the projectile's velocity is. The greater the velocity, the weaker would its homing capability would be.
Rackets were originally based on the Rackets in Final Fantasy IX. But since Zahasuki presses on the importance of practical and weapon's mechanics. Later, he thought that they would just function like normal, everyday rackets used in sports.
Zahasuki actually really likes to play sports like a badminton and tennis, but not ping-pong or squash. By studying and practicing some of the techniques of returning shots(shuttlecocks or tennis balls in his case), he came up to make the Rackets are counter-type weapons. Despite the primary function, he still wants to make the rackets look durable and sturdy enough for close-quarter combats.
Finally, he decided that the original idea would just be transferred to the Wands, as he thought them would be more relevant and typical enough for players to understand.
