One of the most powerful artifacts in the wizarding world, the Elder Wand can be wielded in Hogwarts Legacy by players through two possible methods.

Said to have been constructed as a Death Hallow by Death, the Elder Wand appears in Hogwarts Legacy as the ultimate weapon for players to have, with two ways to get it. Capable of defeating any enemy in the game with any spell, the Elder Wand remains stronger than even Unforgivable Curses like Avada Kedavra. However, if players want to obtain this item, they must either progress through the main story up to a certain event or connect to a quiz found on an external site linked to their account.This guide contains spoilers for Hogwarts Legacy‘s main storyUnlike the books, players thankfully don’t have to defeat the former master of the Elder Wand to use it in Hogwarts Legacy, nor communicate with the same avatar that brought about the other Deathly Hallows. Instead, players’ WB games account must be connected to a Wizarding World Website account before taking a quiz called the Sorting Ceremony. Similar to choosing a house in Hogwarts Legacy, the Sorting Ceremony takes players through several questions with the Elder Wood Wand as a reward for their participation.
