Craft Rod

Type: Item Creation
Source: Player's Handbook

You can create magic rods, which have varied magical effects.
Prerequisite: Caster level 9th+
Benefit: You can create any rod whose prerequisites you meet. (see Item Creation) Crafting a rod takes 1 day for each 1,000 gp in its base price. To craft a rod, you must spend 1/25 of its base price in XP and use up raw materials costing half of its base price.
Some rods incur extra costs in material components or XP as noted in their descriptions. These costs are in addition to those derived from the rod's base price.
