  2. Once logged in to your account, you’ll be able to complete the Wand Ceremony and Sorting Ceremony quizzes.
  3. When this has been done, click the ‘copy’ button to then be sent an 8-digit code to transfer the data with ease.
  4. After this has been completed, head over to the WB Games website and log in to your existing account or make one if need be.
