Hogwarts Legacy is filled with gear and items for you to equip, including a number of Hogwarts Legacy wand handles. These allow you to visually change the look of your wand without having to go and buy a new one from Ollivander’s.
While breaking the immersion a bit, it does allow you far more flexibility with the Hogwarts Legacy character customisation choices. Some of them also provide significant visual changes that will no doubt delight those who want to put a little bit of extra care into their wand in Hogwarts Legacy. All the wand handles in the game below are based off our playthrough for our Hogwarts Legacy review.
Hogwarts Legacy wand handles locations
There are a total of 42 Hogwarts Legacy wand handles:
|Basketweave – Blue||Professor Fig’s classroom|
|Checkerboard – Blue||Faculty Tower, south-east staircase|
|Orbicular – Violet||Gobs of Gobstones side quest|
|Regal – Black||Restricted Section, basement|
|Avian – Grey||Flying Off The Shelves side quest|
We are slowly working our way through the game and grabbing more wand handles, so this guide will be updated over time.
Basketweave – Blue location
In the Defence Against The Dark Arts wing of Hogwarts, head into Professor Fig’s classroom and open the chest in the back corner of the room, by the gold cage.
Checkerboard – Blue
To get this handle, head to the Faculty Tower and to the south-east staircase. Here you can find a frog statue to interact with. Do so and you will be transported to a secret room with a collection chest to open and the handle inside.
Orbicular – Violet
This wand handle is easy to find. Just simply complete the Hogwarts Legacy Gobs of Gobstones quest and find all the Hogwarts Legacy Gobstone locations. Zenobia will then give you this upon completing the quest.
Regal – Black
During the main quest The Secrets of the Restricted Section, you will enter the basement storage room of the library. On the main path, you can find a small Collection Chest with the handle. You can also come back here later on if you missed it.
Avian – Grey
To get this handle, simply complete the quest from Cressida just outside the library and she will give you it as a reward.
That covers all the Hogwarts Legacy Wand Handles and where you can find them. If you are looking for even more gear options, check out the different Hogwarts Legacy broom customisation options, how you can change your appearance in Hogwarts Legacy, and more in our Hogwarts Legacy walkthrough.
Hogwarts Legacy has drawn considerable criticism during its development, largely due to the fact that the creator of the Harry Potter series, J.K. Rowling, has made a number of transphobic remarks on social media in recent years.
While Avalanche has confirmed that J.K. Rowling is not “directly involved” in the development of Hogwarts Legacy, it is working with “her team” and Portkey Games, a Warner Bros. label dedicated to launching new experiences inspired by J.K. Rowling’s original stories. It is currently unclear whether she will earn any royalties from the game’s sale, but it is likely given it is based on her original body of work.
