All Spells in Hogwarts Legacy

Many spells exist in Hogwarts Legacy that range in strength and usage. While some are primarily used to unlock objects or collect them from a distance, many are damage-dealing ones used almost exclusively in combat. However, damage spells are often versatile and can be used to uncover hidden items in specific situations.

Below is a list of every spell and charm you’ll encounter in Hogwarts Legacy:

Ancient MagicArchaic magic that, when activated, deals massive damage to your enemy. You can also throw objects at opponents to inflict extra damage and disrupt their attacks.

How to Unlock New Spells

As you progress through the main story, you’ll naturally gain more spells required to advance further. Most abilities are ones you’ll find in main story quests or during your class assignments. However, while some are available within the first few hours of playing, others are locked until the mid- or even late-game. You’ll also gain some spells, like the Unforgivable Curses, by completing relationship quests with your classmates.

How to Increase Spell Slots

At the start of Hogwarts Legacy, you’ll have four slots you can equip spells to at any given moment. Given there are 34 spells in the game, this can feel rather limiting, but luckily, you’ll be able to increase the amount of spells you can equip pretty early on.

To increase the number of spell slots in Hogwarts Legacy, access the Talents menu in your Field Guide after completing the Jackdaw’s Rest main story quest. In the Core talent tree, you’ll have the option to upgrade your spell slots three times—twice at level 5, and once at level 16. Each time you upgrade your spell slots, they’ll increase by four. So if you get all three upgrades, you’ll have a maximum of 16 spell slots you can equip spells to.

That’s it for all the spells in Hogwarts Legacy. For more Hogwarts, check out all trophies and achievements in Hogwarts Legacy.
