Yes my wand is the same element as my tech arts. Hmmm so it's seems Im stuck with a weaker version of the techs huh? I thought that It'll be fine because all vanguard photon arts also go up to lv 20 and be as strong as each other but techs it seems thats not the case...tech seem weaker to me. I thought I was just doing something wrong because I'm used to ranged and melee weapons. I've never used techs extensively till now.
