Hogwarts legacy

When can you choose your wand?

You will receive your wand automatically during the Hogwarts Legacy story missions. Already on your first day at Hogwarts at level 2 you will visit the village near the school during the mission “Welcome to Hogsmeade”.

Here you have to visit Ollivander’s shop, among other things. The mission markers will guide you safely here. Finally, after a cutscene, Gerbold Ollivander will give you the choice to craft your own wand.

A notice: By default, if you have a Wizarding World account and have linked it to your WB Games account, Ollivander will present you with the same wand you have on your fansite profile. You can still customize it if you want. There is no obligation to use this exact staff. You can also read about how to complete the house test in advance and get extra items in the linked guide.

Create Magic Wand – list of all options

You can at Ollivander choose from a variety of wand styles, wood species and wand cores. The differences are cosmetic, but offer no gameplay difference. The following list gives you all the options so that you can find the right staff for you.

There are two ways to get wand hilts. You get five handles as rewards for certain side quests. You can get all the remaining handles from the collection chests that can be found throughout the game world. However, there are no fixed locations for these handles. Each time you open a Collection Chest, you’ll randomly get either a Trait, Summoning Item, or even a Grip.

If you want all the handles, you need to open all the collection chests in the game. Only with the last chests will you get the last handles in the game. Collection chests can only be found in Hogwarts, Hogsmeade, smaller towns on the map, in bandit camps and in dungeons. Pay attention to the chest symbols on the minimap, unfortunately the chests are not displayed on the map screen.
