While exploring the world of Hogwarts Legacy, your greatest companion will be your wand. originally the wand picks the wizard, but in the game, you will be able to pick a wand of your creation.

In today’s guide, I will go over the best wand build in the game. Your hand is always ready to draw it and defend or use an offensive spell to take down your enemies.

Never forget young wizards, this word will echo in your heart, and be something that most of you will look back on fondly. That word is Revelio!

Hogwarts Legacy: Wand Materials


A wizard’s wand can have many different parts all with unique materials, and explanations.

From its core to the different styles, all the wood types, the lengths, and lastly the flexibility. All these factors affect what wand will belong to a player, giving them one most matching to their personality.

Wand’s Core

  • Dragon Heartstring – The Dragon Heartstring has a lot of potential power. However, in the wrong hands, a Dragon Heartstring wand can become unstable.
  • Unicorn Hair – A wand with a Unicorn Hair core is the most consistent of all the wand cores. It isn’t as strong as Dragon Heartstring but produces more dazzling and more consistent results.
  • Phoenix Feather – Wands with a Phoenix Feather core have the best magical range. Great magical results can happen to wizards and witches with a Phoenix Feather core.

A wand’s core is the basis upon which the rest of your wand is built. Much like the core memories of a person’s life shape who they are, so does the core of a wand shape the rest.
