Dowsing will enchant a rod or stick to be drawn to the closest water within a mile.
The wood that is enchanted will become increasingly brittle and dry with wood turning to ash as soon as the stick touches water. Any metal enchanted thus will be more prone to rust if possible.
When casting the spell the as the user draws their finger across the dowsing rod a trail of glitter will sparkle for a few seconds and the rod will begin to move slightly if there is water within a mile of casting.
