How Does Stupefy Work in Hogwarts Legacy

While players can shield themselves from incoming attacks using Protego, Stupefy works in conjunction with blocking to turn the tables on overzealous opponents, as the charm is used to parry and stagger enemies. The game discusses the spell in the tutorial level, describing, “Hold [the required button or command on your respective game platform] during Protego to stun enemies with a Stupefy counter-attack. Stunned enemies take extra damage, indicated by gold numbers.” If you happened to click past the instructions, you could easily miss this important combat tactic, which allows you to launch counteroffensives instead of merely blocking enemy onslaughts.

Using the Stupefy Charm in Hogwarts Legacy Combat

When the glowing indicator on your character’s head signals an incoming attack is about to land, holding the block button will cause two spells to be cast back to back. First, you will shield yourself from any damage using Protego, which will followed by a cast of Stupefy against incoming attackers. This works like a charm (no pun intended), when facing off with multiple enemies, as you can deflect one enemy’s attack and cast stupefy against one of their allies, which can be a lifesaver, allowing you to dispatch enemies one by one.
