Last update: Tuesday, February 7, 2023
In Hogwarts Legacy, the Wand is a basic tool, as all spells are cast through it. This page shows when can you unlock a new Wand and whether can you influence its looks, as well as what are the options for modifying the appearance of the wand later in the story.
At the beginning of the game, your newly created hero has a wand, albeit its looks are imposed from above. At this time, you cannot change your Wand, or modify its looks . This will remain in effect for a few of the starting quests.
Customizing your Wand
Crafting a "unique personalized wand" is a part of the Welcome to Hogsmeade story quest, which involves visiting the town to replenish supplies lost after the dragon attack from the beginning of the game.
One of the objectives of this quest sees you visit Ollivander's shop. Its owner - Gerbold Ollivander - will help you choose a new wand.
A wand-creating screen will be activated, which allows you to customize all aspects of the wand, among others, its type, shape, or the type of wood from which is made. You can freely choose among the options, as this wand is free of charge. Once completed, the new wand will replace the one you had from the beginning of the game.
New wand doesn't unlock any new spells . The spell-learning only appears during main and side quests.
Once you receive your new wand, the Gear menu will receive a new option - Wand Handles. You can now customize the wand's looks (different skins). Handles don't have any effect on the power of the wand.
To find new skins, try to loot treasure chests, which often contain new Handles and are one of the categories of secrets. After successfully finding a new Handle, its icon and name will appear in the upper right corner of the screen.
