Hogwarts Legacy Potions

Well-rounded Wizards and Witches need to learn about everything the schools have to offer in Hogwarts Legacy, including brewing potions. While they may not be nearly as flashy as many of the spells in the game, they can save you in a pinch when all else seems lost.

You’ll start the game with some simple health potions known as Wiggenweld Potions later on. Right away, we learn the importance of them, and we can even brew most of them ourselves if we have the ingredients. This guide will cover all of the potions you can get in Hogwarts Legacy, the effects they have, and what ingredients are needed to brew them.

Hogwarts Legacy – All Potions, Ingredients, and Effects

There are currently seven different types of potions that can be purchased, brewed, or found in the game. Each one of these offers up a unique effect such as health or rock solid skin. They all have their uses and you can find the full list below so you know which ones you need.

Hogwarts Legacy Potions:

  • Wiggenweld Potion – Restores a small amount of the drinker’s health.
    • 1 Dittany Leaves
    • 1 Horklump Juice
  • Maxima Potion – Temporarily increases the drinker’s spell damage.
    • 1 Leech Juice
    • 1 Spider Fang
  • Focus Potion – Temporarily reduces the drinker’s spell cooldowns.
    • 1 Lacewing Flies
    • 1 Dugbog Tongue
    • 1 Fluxweed Stem
  • Edurus Potion – Enhances the drinker’s defense by covering them with a durable rocky skin.
    • 1 Ashwinger Egg
    • 1 Mongrel Fur
  • Invisibility Potion – Makes the drinker invisible for a short time.
    • 1 Leaping Toadstool Cap
    • 1 Knotgross Sprig
    • 1 Troll Bogey
  • Felix Felicis – Reveals the locations of large loot chests on the mini-map for one in-game day.
    • 1 Lacewing Flies
    • 1 Fluxweed Stem
  • Thunderbrew – Creates a storm around the drinker that stuns and damages nearby enemies.
    • 1 Stench of the Dead
    • 1 Shrivelfig Fruit
    • 1 Leech Juice

Your classes will eventually bring you to the point of potion brewing, but you’ll need to get many of these ingredients on your own. You can always spend Galleons to buy potions in Hogsmeade. However, brewing will save you time and money in Hogwarts Legacy.
