Hogwarts Legacy All Spells List: The Best Spells To Use In Combat

In the new action-adventure title Hogwarts Legacy, you can cast a bunch of awesome spells as a fifth-year student. Just enough to make you a combat-ready wizard/witch.

But which spell is the best in the game? Which ones will you be using the most? This guide is sure to answer all those questions.

Disclaimer: all inputs will be using the Xbox controller. 

Allocating Your Spells

You can map 4 spells in the four spell slots provided. You will have to switch between them a lot as you have 23 (out of 31 spells) to use and map out. To allocate them while in-game, just press the right d-pad, then pick a spell. Then hold Right Trigger and press any of the face buttons (X,Y,A,B) to map the spell to a button of your choice.

How To Learn New Spells

Easy: just go through the main story missions, attend classes, and complete assignments. You will need to complete assignments to earn spells from specific teachers if you wish to progress through the main story anyway.

Best Hogwarts Legacy Spells For Combat

All spells in Hogwarts Legacy are good, but some of them get better Talent Point upgrades than others. These include the following:

Accio – When upgraded, you can drag multiple opponents to you at the same time. It’s also good to have a spell that drags enemies to you and are automatically stunned.

Descendo -When enemies are in the air, you can use this spell to slam them to the ground for massive damage. Use this in tandem with Accio. Also great against flying enemies who are usually fast and annoying.

Expelliarmus – Best against wizards/witches with wands and goblins with weapons; you’ll fight a lot of these enemies through the course of the main quest.

Confringo – When upgraded, this useful fireball spell will become a multi-fireball spell when it hits with the initial fireball, which then homes onto enemies.

What About Avada Kedavra?

Avada Kedavra is a popular spell in the Harry Potter universe, but obviously, it needs to be balanced out in a game like Hogwarts Legacy. The infamous spell can kill lower-level enemies instantly, but it has a massive cooldown time. Potions in Hogwarts Legacy can reduce these quickly.
