How to unlock every spell in Hogwarts Legacy

During your time in Hogwarts Legacy you’ll learn all kinds of spells, charms and jinxes to cast, alongside a few unforgivable curses. You’ll learn spells as you attend classes and complete extra assignments for professors. Not only are they useful in combat, but you’ll be able to use them to locate Field Guide pages, care for beasts and more.

With that in mind, here’s where to find each spell—except the unforgivable curses—and what they do.

Where to find each spell in Hogwarts Legacy 

Spells in Hogwarts relate to Hogwarts school subjects such as transfiguration, charms, herbology and more. Even the potions master has a few spells to teach you outside of brewing concoctions. 

To learn a spell, you have to draw a pattern following a set path. If the red beam catches up with you, you have to start again, but if you hit the correct keys at the right time, you’ll get a speed boost.

It’s well worth doing every assignment you’re offered after attending a class for the first time if you want to build up your repertoire. Most of the spells aren’t required to progress the main story, but you will need some optional spells to complete all those Merlin trials scattered along the countryside. Here are all the spells, who you get them from, and their uses. Keep in mind that the light green conjuring spell, altering spell and Evanesco, the vanishing spell, can only be used within the Room of Requirement.
