How To Get The Elder Wand In Hogwarts Legacy

If you want to know how to get the Elder Wand in Hogwarts Legacy, you're in the right place!

Let's be real. You should be no stranger to the power and prestige of the Elder Wand. This wand, also known as the Deathstick, is one of the three fabled and powerful Deathly Hallows artifacts in J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter series. It is said to be the most powerful wand in existence, with the power to defeat any witch or wizard who possesses it.

As a result, the Elder Wand has caused many wars and battles in the Wizarding World. Still, despite its bloody trail, it hasn't stopped power-hungry wizards from wanting to seize it, each one hoping to harness its power for their own purposes. However, now you also have the chance to claim the Elder Wand in Hogwarts Legacy.

Updated on 12 February: We recently published a new guide detailing how to get all 3 Deathy Hallows in Hogwarts Legacy, including the original Elder Wand, Cloak of Invisibility, and Resurrection Stone! Don't sleep on this!

Importantly, it is not possible to get the original Elder Wand part of the Deathly Hallows. Instead, you can get a different Elder Wand in Hogwarts Legacy. This can be accomplished by connecting your Wizarding World account to your gaming platform (Playstation, Xbox, or PC) and then participating in the Sorting Ceremony on the Wizarding World website. Then, having linked your account, you'll have your Wand and Patronus linked directly into the game.

When you complete the quiz on the Wizarding World website, you will be asked various questions about yourself and your personality. You will also be asked to choose between different items and to describe yourself. Based on your answers, you will be rewarded with a wand, including one of three kinds of Elder Wand: Unicorn Core, Phoenix Core, or Dragon Core.

Use the answers below to get any one of these three Elder Wands in Hogwarts Legacy:

It is important to note that it is currently impossible to change your wand if you make a mistake while doing the quiz on the website. However, it has been confirmed that you can do so in the game when it is released. Again, the closest you can get to the original Elder Wand from the Deathly Hallows is this Phoenix Core 14.5" Elder Wand. Unfortunately, it is not possible to get the Elder Wand with a Thestral core through the quiz on the website.

That's everything you need to know about how to get the Elder Wand in Hogwarts Legacy. The game will release on 10th February 2023 for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC, with later dates for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
