*** A Horcrux's (in)vulnerabilities don't change whether the owner has a body or not, hence the Basilisk venom being necessary to destroy the diary while Voldemort was still incorporeal somewhere. But yes, the wand was only broken in the film.

* Um... The book very clearly explained how the Elder Wand changes masters. At least, it was pretty clear to me. In case it wasn't, here it is: In order for the Elder Wand to recognize a new master, its current master must be defeated, but "defeated" does ''not'' mean "killed". It could mean something as simple as Disarming, as [[spoiler: Harry]] did to the real master of the Elder Wand as of the end of ''[[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheHalfBloodPrince Half-Blood Prince]]'', [[spoiler: Draco Malfoy]] (also: the master doesn't have to be using the Elder Wand for it to be defeated). So there's the first link in the progression broken: Snape was never the master of the Elder Wand, because [[spoiler: he killed Dumbledore as per a prior agreement; Dumbledore more or less forfeited his mastery of the wand to Draco]]. The second link in the chain has a very low probability of being able to mutter an incantation (she'd have to hold the wand in her mouth, and proper word choice and pronunciation is kind of a big deal in the Potterverse), and she never defeated any of the wand's true masters. Neville, while [[TookALevelInBadass taking a level in badass]], ''also'' never defeated any of the wand's masters, but hey, come on. He ended up being master of a big fucking sword that can only be mastered by a true Gryffindor; he's no less {{badass}} for not being a master of the Elder Wand (which, as [[spoiler: Harry]] pointed out later, is a lot more hassle than most people want to deal with).

Added DiffLines:

[[WMG: Albus, Aberforth and Ariana represent the Three Brothers, and Grindelwald is Death]]
Like the first brother, Albus seems to [[spoiler: ignore and alienate his siblings in search of greater power and dominance.]] Meanwhile, Aberforth, like the second brother, [[spoiler: values a dead girl more than anything he can have in life.]] Ariana, like the third brother, [[spoiler: just wants to hide from Death, and stay out of conflict.]] And Grindelwald is like Death, [[spoiler: the conniving, manipulative force that drives this family apart and is the catalyst of the siblings taking on the roles of the Three Brothers.]] Especially likely given that the Dumbledores are in the same age order as the Peverells, and is a family so connected to the Hallows hunt.

Where else would Death get the [[IncrediblyLamePun styx]] to carve into the most lethal wand in all of existence? But puns aside, a wand from a tree beyond the veil would probably be ''much'' more potent, and definitely more resistant to "dying" from violence or old age ([[DoubleJeopardy again]]), than would a wand carved from a normal (albeit very, very old) tree.

** Moody has his magic eye that can see through literally everything. Crouch borrowed it as part of his disguise (Polyjuice couldn't replicate it). Mrs Norris is a ''cat'', and did not see through the cloak - she ''smelled'' Harry because the cloak does not stop detection by the other senses. Similarly, Harry is not made inaudible by the cloak. When did Dumbledore ever see through it, exactly?

***** Maybe during one of her transformations, she got in a fight with another animal and was wounded in the leg, hence the cane?
