Wizard Damage Question

Does the base damage of the weapon the wizard is holding affect magic damage at all? For example, the wand you start with has 1-3 base damage, I just found an ax with 3-4.5 damage, so my question is would equipping the ax even though it is a melee weapon cause a spell like magic missile to do more damage?

Yes. Spell damage scales off weapon damage.

Damage : Weapon damage + Int
Cast Speed : Weapon attack Speed
