Most Powerful Wands in Wizarding World: With Cores and Woods - WizardingHub

The Harry Potter series introduced the strange and endearing Wizarding world to fans all over the world in 2001. There are many magical people using wands and casting spells in the Wizarding World. Following that, admirers of Harry Potter and its characters have fallen in love.

A magic wand is a wood stick that helps a magician born with magic to properly manipulate that magic power. This is not just a wand, it is made of wood to be used only for wands, with magical powers. A rod was inserted into the middle womb, part of a magical creature. Except for a mage who has studied magic beyond the realm of being able to cast magic without a wand. Every other magician needs a magic wand to perform magic.

These wands differ mainly in size, shape, wood, and the core in the middle. In terms of size, there are rods ranging from 8 inches to 15 inches. And there are different shapes of wands. You may remember that the wands of people like Bellatrix Lestrange, Victor Krum, and Lucius Malfoy have slightly different shapes. In any case, two wands are not the same in any way, but there can be twin wands. Examples of them are Voldemort's and Harry Potter's wands and The two wands of the brothers Webster and Chadwick Boot, founders of Ilvermorny School. 

11 magic wands are considered to be the most powerful in the wizarding world. But it belongs to ten magicians. Because Dumbledore has the right to both wands. Those are,

      1. Albus's Elder Wand

      2. Albus's Original Wand

      3. Lord Voldermot's Wand

      4. Harry Potter's Wand

      5. Bellatrix Lestrange's Wand

      6. Professor McGonagall's Wand

      7. Remus John Lupin's Wand

      8. Professor Severus Snape's Wand

      9. Serius Black's Wand

    10. Lucius Malfoy's Wand

    11. Hemoine's Wand

01. Elder Wand

According to legend, the Elder Wand is the most potent in the wizarding community. It was constructed by an elder. The rarest of all materials used to make wand cases. Elder combines a bad luck reputation with extremely potent magic and a picky nature. It would not accept just any owner, preferring that potential owners first establish their worth. Its precise ancestry was unknown. 

According to the fairytale The Tale Of Three Brothers, it was created by Death Incarnate. It had previously been owned by several different people before being taken by Grindelwald and then acquired by Dumbledore, who kept it with him until his passing. It was briefly in Draco Malfoy's possession after he had defeated Dumbledore in Half-Blood Prince. 

Harry acquired ownership of it after Draco was disarmed. Later, it was used to fix Harry's original wand before being buried inside Dumbledore's grave once more.

The person who wins that wand from the previous owner becomes the owner of that wand. In that order, Preverell, Emeric the Evil, Deverill, Loxias, Louis, Arcus, Gregorowitch, Grindelwald, and then Dombeldor get this wand. Draco gets this wand from Dombeldor and Harry gets it from Draco. Also, you remember that this elder wand used Voldemort right.

02. Albus's Original Wand

Albus Dumbledore purchased his wand in 1892 at the age of eleven. Albus Dumbledore received his wand from Garrick Ollivander’s father Gervaise Ollivander, or potentially even his grandfather Gerbold Ollivander. Given his position as the strongest wizard and former position as a Transfiguration teacher, Dumbledore's wand may be made of ebony wood. Ebony Wood's qualities of outsider nonconformity and comfortability to be oneself also fit him well.

03. Lord Voldemort's Wand

Voldemort's Original Wand is one of the longest in the Harry Potter series, measuring thirteen and a half inches. When he still identified himself as Tom Riddle, he acquired it. He employed it for both excellent and dreadful deeds. It was 'brother' to Harry's wand because it was fashioned of yew and had Fawkes' second feather in the center.

At age sixteen, Voldemort committed his first murders while still in school while using his wand to learn the Dark Arts, which he later used to produce his Horcruxes. Peter Pettigrew managed to get hold of Voldemort's wand when he failed to kill baby Harry and disappeared, and he kept it with him until his rebirth in 1994. Voldemort ditched it after discovering its connection to Harry's wand and started using Lucius Malfoy's before snatching the Elder Wand from Dumbledore's tomb.

As I mentioned before Harry's wand and Voldemort's wand are twin wands. therefore the powers of both Harry's and Voldemort's wands are the same. Because both of them have taken two feathers of the same phoenix. And both these wands are designed by Garrick Ollivandor. Even so, Voldemort is not second to any of the dark illusions, that's why I put Voldermote's wand in third place in this list and Harry's wand in fourth place.

04. Harry Potter's Wand

One of the series' most potent wands is Harry Potter's Wand. The core of this wand is made of a phoenix feather that was harvested from Fawkes, Dumbledore's bird, which also provided a feather for Riddle's wand. Holly wand, about 11 inches long. Harry is supposed to pair best with holly-wand-made wizards engaged in supernatural or perilous conquests. 

In their combat in the Little Hangleton graveyard, it became clear for the first time how the interaction between Harry Potter and Voldemort's wands hindered the two. Their wands recognized one another and refrained from attacking one another thanks to a powerful magical phenomenon known as Priori Incantatem. Hermione, who performs a blasting curse to protect Harry from Nagini in Godric's Hollow, causes his wand to be irreparably shattered. 

Due to this, Harry is compelled to use other wands for the remainder of Voldemort's life until he destroys the Dark Lord and can use the Elder Wand to restore the holly feather core of his deceased buddy.

05. Bellatrix Lestrange's Wand

Bellatrix Lestrange, the wizard's favorite "bad girl," served as Voldemort's right-hand woman and, presumably,  the mother of his kid. Lestrange was constructed of walnut, measured 12 3/4 inches long, and had a dragon heartstring inside. 

This wand's "unyielding" description by Ollivander is also a very telling indication about its owner. According to legend, a walnut tree, as well as Bellatrix's walnut-wood wand, held evil or poison and was therefore forbidden to be grown close to.

Bellatrix From the time she was 11 years old, both before and after her imprisonment in Azkaban, it utilized her wand for a variety of nefarious deeds, such as torturing Neville Longbottom's parents and killing her cousin Sirius Black. The Golden Trio eventually stole it, and Hermione substituted her own after that.

06. Professor Macgonegal's Wand

Professor McGonagall's wand was nine and three-quarter inches long with a dragon heartstring core and was described as being sophisticated and elegant. It was constructed of fir, a kind of wood that combined nicely with Transfiguration specialists and performed flawlessly in difficult circumstances.

McGonagall was able to become the Head of Transfiguration at Hogwarts, transform into the cat Animagus, and actively participate in both Wizarding Wars thanks to her incredibly powerful wand. Even during the Battle of Hogwarts, she was able to animate the castle's suits of armor and cast the Imperius curse on Amycus Carrow with ease.

07. Remus Lupin's Wand

When Lupin was eleven years old, he purchased his wand from Ollivander after getting admitted to Hogwarts despite having lycanthropy. It was constructed of cypress, a wood that was favored by aristocratic wizards and witches who would die valiant deaths, and measured ten and three-quarter inches. The passing of Lupin at the Battle of Hogwarts served as confirmation of this.

Although it had a modest amount of strength, Lupin's wand was one of the most reliable and dependable wands in Harry Potter because of its unicorn hair core. As a professor at Hogwarts and a member of the Order of the Phoenix, Lupin employed it. He could use the focused power of a Patronus Charm to cast it, repel a variety of Dark creatures, and combat Death Eaters.

08. Severus Snape's Wand

Since nothing is known about Snape's wand's length, core, or wooden housing, it is a mystery. Before his first year at Hogwarts in 1971, he bought it from Ollivander and retained it till his demise in Deathly Hallows. Snape's self-invented spells, many of which he developed in adolescence, indicate that his wand was significantly more potent than the norm.

Along with his proficiency with the Dark Arts, Snape was also demonstrated in Chamber Of Secrets to be a competent duelist. He could disarm and condemn others with little effort, sometimes doing it nonverbally. Strong magical ability and skill are needed for this.

09. Sirius Black's Wand

The wand is flat and smooth, with designs carved onto the side. It is said that those carvings say, "more or less human", pointing to him being an animagas. Which means “not enemy nor friend, but loyal forever. It has a deep shade of black in most of its appearances. The runes on Sirius Black's wand are believed to be a secret tongue of Celtic origin that is kept alive only by those in the Order of the Phoenix. Sirius Black wand is made of resin, this wand measures approximately 15 inches long and comes with a sleek collector box.

10. Lucious Malfoy's Wand

In Harry Potter, Lucius Malfoy's wand is among the most visually appealing. It was a plain black wand by itself, but it had a silver snakehead on it that was small enough to slip into Lucius' walking stick. It was fashioned of elm with a dragon heartstring core. Pureblood supremacists claimed that this wand could only be owned by "real" magical folk, not Muggle-born people.

For a while, Lucius was regarded as Voldemort's chief Death Eater, making him and his wand an effective duo. Even during Deathly Hallows, Voldemort requested Lucius' wand and used it to kill Mad-Eye Moody.

11. Hermione Granger's Wand

Hermione bought her wand from Ollivander just before starting her first year at Hogwarts. It was made of vine wood, which is relatively uncommon, and was ten inches and three-quarters long. The wand is claimed to look for owners who have bigger goals in mind. 

Hermione's wand included a single dragon heartstring, the core of which is well renowned for its unbridled strength, inside its wooden housing.

Woods and Core

And also The wand maker we meet in the Harry Potter series is Garrick Ollivander. According to him, he made his own wand in the magic of the first age. And Salzar Slytherin is a skilled wizard. He could put his wand to sleep when he wasn't using it, Ollivander has found 38 types of wood suitable for making magic wands.

        1. Ash 
        2. Oak
        3. Elder
        4. Redwood
        5. Hawthorn 
        6. Willow
        7. Holly 
        8. Yew
        9. Maple 
        10. Mahogany  
are some of them.

Also, he has found 24 types of cores suitable for the rod core.

        1. Ashwinder ash
        2. Dragon heartstrings
        3. Mermaid scale
        4. Gryndylow tooth
        5. Theatrical hair
        6. Unicorn hair
        7. Phoenix feather 

and several of them.

Even if someone buys the wand from a wizard who has a unicorn hair core, it will be exactly the same as the original owner and people with these wounds are not very good at dark arts.

If someone wins a wand that holds the Dragon Heartstrings core from someone, it will work exactly for the person who won it, and those who have these wands are well-versed in dark arts. Many wands with this core are very strong. Lucius Malfoy, Hermione Granger, Bellatrix Lestrange, and Prof. Minerva McGonagall also had wands with this core wands with the Phenix feather core are very rare and difficult to handle. 

The special feature of this is that it works 100% only for the right person. Just like Voldemort, Harry also had twin wands with this core.


There are many types of flexibility in a wand.

        1. Bendy Solid
        2. Flexible Pliant
        3. Hard unyielding 

can be mentioned. 

Here, with this flexible wand, the wand selects the wizard by adjusting the characteristics of the wizard.
