Entering Hogwarts requires you to pick a unique wand for you to use before you can actually cast spells and here are the best wand builds for you to use as a guide in Hogwarts Legacy. There are 3 different cores of each wand namely the Dragon Heartstring, Unicorn Hair, and Phoenix Feather, and each one of them produces a unique one among all students.

During your time in Hogwarts, you will need to pick a unique wand before you do any magic. There are 3 different cores, the Dragon Heartstring, Unicorn Hair, and Phoenix Feather, each one produces a unique wand with different trait. Here are all the traits for each cores.

  • 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 Phoneix Feather core have the best magical range. Great magical results can happen to wizards and witches with a Phoenix Feather core.

Besides the cores of the wands, there are also characteristics of the wand where you can customize for aesthetics. There is Wand Style, Wood Type, Wand Length, and Wand Flexibility. Here’s a list of all the styles you can use for your wands.
