There’s no mistaking that there is a lot to learn in Hogwarts Legacy. Whether that’s new spells or uncovering the plethora of puzzles that await you in both the castle and beyond, all of these will keep you busy for some time.
One spell that many are looking to use is Expelliamus, a prominent feature in both the Harry Potter books and films we’re sure you’re familiar with.
Thankfully, we’ve got it for ourselves in Hogwarts Legacy so we can provide you with all the information you need to follow so you can get it equipped yourself. We’ll also discuss how to use it effectively, allowing you to get the most out of it in battles.
How To Get Expelliarmus In Hogwarts Legacy
If you’re looking to learn Expelliarmus as fast as possible, you’re going to need to get through some of those Main Quests. This is because it is locked behind some progression in the game as well as a Professor’s Assignment.
The Professor you’re looking for here is Professor Hecat, the Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher, and it’s Professor Hecat’s Assignment 2 that we’re concerned about here.
This Assignment tasks you with avoiding attacks by dodge rolling 10 times as well as using Incendio 5 times on enemies. These objectives aren’t too difficult and can even be completed during Crossed Wands if you so wish.
How To Use Expelliarmus In Hogwarts Legacy
Now you’ve picked up Expelliarmus, knowing how to effectively use it when fighting is key.
As Expelliarmus is a Damage spell, our first tip is obviously to use it to start whittling down the health of your foes. Used in combination with other Damage spells such as Confringo or Incendio and you’ll be a complete menace to those in your path.
As previously mentioned, if you’ve watched the films or read the books, you’ll know the Expelliarmus spell is famous for disarming opponents. This is shared with its Hogwarts Legacy variant, allowing you to knock the wands out of Dark Wizard’s hands, as well as removing any weapons other enemies have.
Naturally, this is extremely useful when fighting against a few different enemies at the same time and where Expelliarmus is at its most effective. If you disarm enemy one then go ahead and attack enemy two, three, four, so on and so forth, you can go back to them and dispatch them also, all without potentially taking any damage.
Sadly, there is no Mastery associated with Expelliarmus so you can’t improve it any way, but in our eyes, for the disarming alone, it’s a worthy spell to add to your Spell Set.
