Hogwarts Legacy players only get to use the Elder Wand in one of the main story quests but you can get a replica of your own.

The Elder Wand is one of the most powerful weapons in this Wizarding universe, but aside from this single mission, players won’t be able to use it or possess the original again.

The brief appearance of the Elder Wand in Hogwarts Legacy is just one of the many references and Easter Eggs found in the game.

Is the Elder Wand in Hogwarts Legacy?

While you can not unlock or use the wand normally in Hogwarts Legacy, you will use it briefly while completing the quest “Niamh Fitzpatrick’s Trial“.

This quest will put you up against Death, where Niamh will grant you the wand to take on Death’s minions. However, once the mission is complete, you can not use the wand again.

You will also come across the other two Deathly Hallows in this mission, the invisibility cloak and the Resurrection Stone. However, you will not be able to keep these items either.

In the Harry Potter universe, The Deathly Hallows were believed to be magical items created by Death and whoever possessed all three at the same time would become the “Master of Death”.

How to Get an Elder Wand Replica in Hogwarts Legacy

There are two ways for players to get a replica Elder Wand in Hogwarts Legacy:

  • Method #1 – Completing the Wizarding World Quiz
    • To get an Elder Wand before you begin your Hogwarts Legacy journey, you will need to create an account at Wizarding World. From there you will be prompted to “Discover Your Wand” by answering seven questions.
    • There are three different versions of the Elder Wand you can receive based on the answers you give.

    • You can create a wand similar to the Elder wand.
    • However, if you have already made your wand in-game, you will be unable to create another unless you reload the save from the beginning.
    • When you reach the point of the story where you receive your own wand, follow these customization options and you will have an Elder Wand of your own:
      • Wand Style – Stalk
      • Wand Color (Variation) – Dark Brown
      • Wood Type – Elder
      • Core Type – Phoenix Feather
      • Flexibility – Hard
      • Wand Length – 14 and a half inches

The finished replica won’t look exactly like the famous wand but it will be the closest you can get.
