Forums: Index > The Wizengamot > Confused about the Elder Wand

In the wiki page about the Elder Wand, there is a picture of Harry Potter wrestling it away from Draco Malfoy, but how was that possible if Voldemort took the Elder Wand from Dumbledore in his tomb later on in the film?

First of all, you should not the message on the main Wizengamot page, which says:
This forum is dedicated to questions, suggestions and comments related to the running of the wiki and its contents. It is not to be used for general questions about the series, to discuss anything outside the running of the wiki, or for speculative discussions. Any such topics will be subject to deletion.
That said, I'll go ahead and explain the source of your confusion.
Malfoy doesn't physically possess the Elder Wand at any point, but when he "defeats" Dumbledore at the end of Half-Blood Prince by disarming him, he becomes the master of the Elder Wand. In turn, when Harry defeats Draco at Malfoy Manor, the mastery of the Elder Wand passes to Harry. So none of the wands in that picture are the Elder Wand, but that moment, when Harry takes the wands from Draco, is the point when Harry masters the Elder Wand. —Josiah Rowe 19:26, November 26, 2010 (UTC)
