Professor Sharp's Assignment 2 Walkthrough

Seren Morgan-Roberts

This page details how to complete Professor Sharp’s Assignment 2, in which you will learn the offensive spell, "Diffindo" iconDiffindo in Hogwarts Legacy. During this assignment, you’ll be asked to acquire some more potions and use them.

Professor Sharp's next assignment will involve more potions and learning "Diffindo" iconDiffindo.

How to Unlock Professor Sharp’s Assignment 2

This quest will unlock once you’ve completed the main quest, ‘Room of Requirement’. Professor Sharp will assign you these following tasks:

Where to Get an Invisibility Potion and Thunderbrew Potion

You can either purchase the potions or the recipes to brew your own at "J. Pippin's Potions" iconJ. Pippin’s Potions shop in "Hogsmeade" iconHogsmeade. It’s a lot easier and cheaper to just purchase the potions themselves at this stage in the game, but feel free to try to brew your own! Both the "Invisibility Potion" iconInvisibility Potion and the "Thunderbrew" iconThunderbrew Potion cost 500 gold, so you’ll need to spend a total of 1,000 Gold to complete this assignment. If you’re strapped for gold, you can try selling some old gear or go on the hunt for some Eye Chests. There’s several eye chests around "Hogsmeade" iconHogsmeade that you can locate using "Revelio" iconRevelio. Then to loot them you’ll need to use the "Disillusionment" iconDisillusionment Charm (invisibility spell) so the eye doesn’t see you coming. These chests always yield 500 gold!

Now that you’ve got the potions, it’s time to use them! There are no other prerequisites for using the "Invisibility Potion" iconInvisibility Potion except to just use it, so you can equip that and take it as soon as you’ve got your hands on it! It will only last a few seconds before you’re back to being visible again - the "Disillusionment" iconDisillusionment Charm is much stronger it seems! The "Thunderbrew" iconThunderbrew Potion, however, will require hunting down some enemies. You could try heading west from "Hogsmeade" iconHogsmeade into the "Forbidden Forest" iconForbidden Forest area. Here you can find Poachers, Spiders and Mongrel enemies. When you drink the "Thunderbrew" iconThunderbrew, you’ll conjure up a thunderstorm around you that lasts about 30 seconds. It will stun and damage nearby enemies but the radius of effect isn’t that big so make sure to get close to the enemies if you want "Thunderbrew" iconThunderbrew to work!

How to Unlock Diffindo Spell

Once you’ve successfully used both potions, return to Professor Sharp in his Potions Classroom and tell him of your success. You’ll then get to learn the offensive spell, "Diffindo" iconDiffindo. This spell has a long range and when used, it’ll send out a bright slash of white light towards the enemy, dealing slashing damage.
