Where to Find Enemies in Hogwarts Legacy

When you first enter Hogwarts Legacy and learn new spells, you’ll spend much of your time at school, participating in classes and socializing with classmates. While you eventually leave the school to explore the world, it can be challenging to gauge when you get free rein to jump into a horde of enemies and cast every spell in your arsenal.

Where to Find Enemies in Hogwarts Legacy

As you progress through the main story and explore various dungeons, you’ll naturally encounter enemies to test your spells and combat abilities. They’ll also appear in the overworld, allowing you to knock out a few enemies before moving on to your next objective. However, while you’ll spend considerable time doing this, other methods exist to locate monsters to fight.

Bandit Camps

Bandit camps are locations around the map that generally house goblins, Ashwinder enemies and poachers, depending on which you visit. Small camps usually only have a few enemies to defeat, while larger ones have dozens scattered around the area. You’ll also find collection chests here, rewarding you with traits you can equip onto your gear after you unlock the Room of Requirement.

Monster Lairs

On your map, you’ll occasionally spot points of interest like Spider, Troll, and Dugbog Lairs. Lairs are guaranteed to spawn at least one or two of their respective monster and will respawn them over time. In other words, if you clear out a spider or troll lair, you can return later to defeat them again. If you want to finish a combat challenge quickly, this is one of the most reliable ways to do it!

Dungeons and Vaults

If you enjoy looking for treasure or want to complete side quests, you may find yourself exploring treasure vaults and other miscellaneous dungeons throughout your travels. These typically house monsters like spiders and Inferi, but you may find the occasional troll and human enemy. While there are more reliable ways to find specific enemies, you can go in knowing there’s a high chance you’ll find a few enemies.

Battle Arenas

There are three battle arenas in Hogwarts Legacy, including one as part of the Dark Arts pack. These arenas in North Ford Bog, the Forbidden Forest, and Feldcroft let you fight hordes of enemies over a few rounds. You’ll find all kinds of monsters, each arena having slightly different ones, allowing you to encounter many opponents. Battle arenas are especially helpful if you’re pursuing the Finishing Touches achievement and need to use ancient magic on a few enemies!
