Given that you have to be level 50 to achieve the 110 effect, in practice the only time you'd see it is if you were specifically trying to see it. I think the mage's Wonder spell is slightly better than the wand (larger boost to the die roll) but it's so expensive MP-wise that nobody's going to try to use it for a serious fight.

That said, Wands of Wonder can be pretty useful early on. You have about a 50% chance of getting a good-damage elemental attack out of them even if you're level 1, and that can seriously shorten a fight. Of course, if you do get a haste or clone effect, I hope you have a way to run away...
