Things To Keep in Mind Before Playing “Hogwarts Legacy”

Open-world RPG “Hogwarts Legacy” with an initial playthrough of over 20 hours is a visually stunning masterpiece with a massive open world. In this game, set in the 9th century, you can play for a fifth-year student of a renowned magical school.

So, no wonder, you always have the desire to venture off the beaten path and explore this world, all its passageways, forests, and mountains, instead of just completing main story tasks. However, as an RPG game, Hogwarts Legacy has such essential elements for this genre as customization, collecting and crafting items, looting, combat, and progression. 

To make your wizarding path in Hogwarts Legacy interesting and get as much experience, and items as possible, to unlock all the spells, are, as and hidden options, you should keep in mind some tips and strategies before you dive into the magical world. Of course, you don’t need to follow them, but they definitely will help you to enjoy this great game at its most, save time, gain experience, and more. So, let’s dive into the magical world instead of gambling on or playing some other games – you will not be disappointed! 

Hogwarts Legacy

Unlock Fast Floo Travel Points

Once you unlock the multiple Floo locations across the map, you can use them any time you want to travel in the Wizarding World. Even if exploring the map is adventurous, after a while, the process of moving from one location to the next gets a bit boring, especially when you’re looking for all the collectible items. So, it is a good idea to unlock as many Floo locations on the map as possible (they are marked in white and green). 

Level up with fighting on Battle Arenas 

In addition to the main and side quests, Hogwarts Legacy has many additional activities, including fighting in the three battle arenas (North Ford Bog Battle Arena, Feldcroft Battle Arena, and Dark Arts Battle Arena). If you win these battles, you can gain experience, level up, and get achievement. The big advantage of this activity is that you can visit the battle arenas at any time. They will still be available after the end of the story, so you can’t miss them. 

Stick to the main quest 

In Hogwarts Legacy, the process of improving your character and unlocking various systems and abilities is closely tied to the progression of the main story. That’s why the first piece of advice – at the very beginning, focus only on completing story quests. To be very specific, you’ll have to complete about 16 story quests to unlock the initial abilities, which include the Merlin Trials, broomstick flying, talents, and a set of basic spells. Many areas and options (for example, Hippogriff and Thestral Mount) in the game are also inaccessible until you get to a certain point in the main quest or complete certain side quests. The thing is, you have to be patient and follow the main story to unlock a lot of good stuff, especially in the early stages of the game.

Scam the Revelio spell

You never know when there are a bunch of puzzles or chests nearby to interact with. The Revelio spell will probably be one of your most used spells in Hogwarts Legacy. When you use Revelio, nearby ingredients will glow yellow, puzzles may glow blue, and field guide pages will become visible. It is worth noting that using Revelio will also make a bell sound if it detects something near you. 

Don’t forget to read the owl posts

Something else you may not immediately realize is that reading owl posts is important for the development of the main story in the game. If an owl post goes unread in your post, any quest attached to it may not show up on your quest list. This makes it easy to miss what you’re supposed to be doing near the continuation of the main story, and you may find yourself doing side quests with no real progress in the game. To avoid this, make sure you check your owl posts as often as possible. It can be found at the bottom right of the wheel displayed when you pause the game.
