How to customize wand in Hogwarts Legacy | Wand customization guide

Wand customization is a pivotal part of the gameplay experience in Hogwarts Legacy. You’ll get to choose and customize it when you visit Ollivander’s in Hogsmeade in the early parts of the game. Then, you can use these to make it truly unique and stand out among your peers and rivals. The wand is purely cosmetic and has no effect on the gameplay, so you can customize it without any worries. After selecting your wand, you cannot change it, so it’s important to customize it according to your preferences. The only thing you can change, however, is the wand handles, which are tied to quests and other activities.
