Hogwarts Legacy Wand Handles, Locations & Customizations

Never end up with the same Wand as your Worst Enemy in Hogwarts Legacy.

Hogwarts Legacy brings a lot of customization that the Harry Potter games were missing. There are a lot of options for the players that they want to try out really badly. The players can now customize how their character looks or what he wears. Not only that, they can customize what houses the character can choose. Now, the players can fully customize their Wands and their Handles in Hogwarts Legacy.

Key Takeaways

In Hogwarts Legacy, wands are fully customizable for cosmetic purposes only. Here are the customization options for wands:

  1. Wand Handles: There are 14 different wand handle types, each with three varieties, totaling 42 options. These handles can be found throughout Hogwarts and its nearby grounds.
  2. Wand Styles: There are eight wand styles, and you can choose from three textures for each style.
  3. Wood Types: You have a choice of 40 different wood types for your wand, allowing for a wide variety of appearances.
  4. Length and Flexibility: You can select from various length and flexibility options to personalize your wand’s characteristics.
  5. Wand Core: There are three different wand core options: Unicorn Hair, Dragon Heartstring, and Phoenix Feather.

You can customize your wand’s style, wood type, length, flexibility, and core at Ollivanders in Hogsmeade. It’s important to note that once you’ve obtained a wand, you cannot change its customization, so choose your customization options carefully to create the perfect wand for your character.

Hogwarts Legacy finally lets you choose your own wand. In addition to that, it lets you customize your wand to your liking, however, you see fit. That way, you can design the wand to your liking and ensure that you get the most out of your experience while playing Hogwarts Legacy.

Among other customizations, there is one that we have loved a lot about wands in Hogwarts Legacy. And that it allows you to have a Wand Handle. The Wand Handle, as the name suggests, is a handle for your Wand that you will put on it. There is a variety of Wand Handles in Hogwarts Legacy, and they are quite hard to find.

It’s essential to note that Wand Handles don’t have fixed locations. While you may find specific Wand Handles in certain areas, the majority of loot in the game is randomized. There’s no confirmed location for Wand Handles based on information from Reddit and other forums. You may come across them in chests or as loot, but loading a Manual Save game can yield different items.

Wand Handles Locations

Wand Handles don’t have confirmed fixed locations, but there are some spots where you may have a higher chance of finding them during your adventures in Hogwarts and its nearby areas. While these locations aren’t confirmed, they’re worth exploring:

Please note that the availability of Wand Handles can vary, and it’s recommended to explore these spots to discover them for yourself.

Professor Fig’s Classroom

The first Wand that you’ll come across is when you go to visit Professor Figs for the first time. That is before you have to enter the restricted area of the library to get clues to the mystery. There, the chest is at the back of the room. You’ll find it near the Golden Cage.

Library’s Restricted Section

There’s a specific location in the Library’s Restricted Section where you can almost always find a Wand Handle. Here’s how to locate it:

  1. After acquiring the Wand from Professor Fig’s Classroom, head to the Restricted Section of the Library.
  2. You’ll need to obtain a key from the Librarian’s desk to access this section.
  3. Inside the Restricted Section, you’ll encounter a few ghosts that you need to distract.
  4. Your companion will suggest removing the cloaking spell and proceeding further.
  5. Descend the stairs into what appears to be a storage room.
  6. In this room, you will come across a chest containing the second Wand Handle.

Secret Frog Statue Room

To find the Wand Handle in the Secret Frog Statue Room, follow these steps:

  1. Open your map and navigate to the South Wing section.
  2. Locate the Faculty Tower Floo Flame location within the South Wing.
  3. Head directly south from there and find circular stairs leading down.
  4. Approach the Frog Statue you encounter at the bottom of the stairs.
  5. You’ll see an “Enter” option when you get close to the Frog Statue. Interact with it, and the frog will swallow you, transporting you to a secret room.
  6. In this secret room, you’ll find a chest that almost always contains a Wand Handle.

Here’s a trick to get your preferred Wand Handle:

  • Before opening the chest, create a manual save game.
  • Open the chest to check its contents. If it has your preferred Wand Handle, you can proceed.
  • If it doesn’t have the Wand Handle you want, reload the manual save you created. Avoid the autosave created when you open the chest.

This trick allows you to obtain your preferred Wand Handle from the chest. There’s another chest with similar mechanics, which we’ll explain shortly.

Lower HogsField

To find another Wand Handle, you can follow a similar process as the one in the Secret Frog Statue Room. Here’s how to locate it at Lower Hogsfield:

  1. Teleport to the Hogwarts South Exit.
  2. From there, head south towards Lower Hogsfield.

    Wand Handle is located at Lower Hogsfield.
  3. Lower Hogsfield is near a lake, so continue towards the water. Don’t worry; the water is shallow, only knee-deep.
  4. In the middle of the water, just before a small wooden bridge, you’ll come across an upturned wagon.
  5. Near the wagon, you’ll find a small chest submerged in the water.

Here’s a trick to obtain your preferred Wand Handle from this chest:

  • Before opening the chest, manually save the game.
  • Open the chest to check its contents. If it contains the Wand Handle you desire, that’s great; you can keep it.
  • If it doesn’t have the Wand Handle you want, reload the manual save you created. Avoid the autosave created when you open the chest.

Repeat this process until you get the Wand Handle you’re looking for at the Lower Hogsfield location. This is the second chest where you can find random Wand Handles in the game.

Other Wand Customizations

But Wand Handles aren’t the only things that you can customize about your Wands in Hogwarts Legacy. The game has allowed players to fully customize their own wands to their liking. There are tons of options for how you want to have your wands in the game. They can have different Styles, Wood Types, Lengths, Flexibility, and many more. It depends on you how you want to proceed with it.

We’ll discuss each of them individually so you know what you’re getting into. We’re hopeful that you will pick the perfect wand for yourself. Now, remember, these options, like the Wand Handles, are purely cosmetic customizations. The Size or other factors don’t matter at all. You’ll have the same performance with the Wand. It isn’t like that one is powerful with offensive magic and the other is good with defensive magic.

Selecting Wand

  • You can either complete a quiz on the official Wizarding World website or progress in the game until you reach the point where you receive your wand.
  • The quiz on the website helps determine your ideal wand based on your personality and preferences.

Wand Style

  • There are eight different wand styles to choose from.
  • These styles are purely cosmetic and don’t affect wand performance. Once chosen, you can’t change it.
  • Styles include Notched, Classic, Soft Spiral, Spiral, Stalk, Ringed, Crooked Spiral, and Natural.

Wood Type

  • You can select the type of wood used in your wand’s creation.
  • Each wood type has unique properties in the Wizarding World, but in the game, it’s purely cosmetic.
  • Options include Acacia, Alder, Apple, Ash, Aspen, Beech, Blackthorn, Black Walnut, Cedar, Cherry, Chestnut, Cypress, Dogwood, Ebony, Elder, Elm, English Oak, Fir, Hawthorn, Hazel, Holly, Hornbeam, Larch, Laurel, Maple, Pear, Pine, Polar, Red Oak, Redwood, Rowan, Silver Lime, Spruce, Sycamore, Vine, Walnut, Willow, and Yew.

Wand Length

  • Wand length options range from 9 ½ inches to 14 ½ inches, changing in quarter-inch increments.
  • Some wands can be even shorter or longer, but those are quite rare in the game.

Flexibility

  • Wand flexibility determines how well the wand responds to its owner.
  • Some wands are more flexible and adaptable, while others are unyielding.
  • In the game, wand flexibility is also cosmetic and doesn’t affect performance.

Core

  • The core of the wand gives it its characteristics.
  • There are three core types available at Ollivanders: Unicorn Hair, Dragon Heartstring, and Phoenix Feather.
