Players were excited to discover they could use the Unforgivable Curses in Hogwarts Legacy. While instantly eliminating an opponent sounds like an easy way to complete the game, it is not the best spell in Hogwarts Legacy. If you are curious, here are the strongest spells in Hogwarts Legacy.

Spells in Hogwarts Legacy can be divided into three categories, attack spells, defense spells, and utility. Attack and defense spells, as the name suggests, are used in combat. Utility spells are used out of combat.

Strongest attack spells in Hogwarts Legacy

Fighting is a prominent part of Hogwarts Legacy. Whether you are taking part in a friendly skirmish with some classmates or you are fighting Inferi, you must know how to attack.

Mastering the art of landing attack spells in quick succession or using objects around you to throw at your enemies takes time. There are some spells you must learn and others that will help you guarantee the win, no matter the opponent.

Ancient Magic Throw and Ancient Magic are incredibly powerful. Use it whenever it is available to quickly get rid of enemies.

You might recognize Petrificus Totalus from the first Harry Potter movie, Hermione uses this spell on Neville. In Hogwarts Legacy, this spell can be used to bind enemies. In weaker opponents, the binding is permanent. Stronger opponents will take damage and break free after a moment.

Avada Kedavra kills the enemies immediately. It is easier to use and faster than engaging in a whole duel. You can unlock it by completing the side mission In the Shadow of the Relic.

Best defense spells in Hogwarts Legacy

Sometimes, a good defense is the best offense. In Hogwarts Legacy, Protego is the ultimate defense spell. It creates a barrier that stops attacks from opponents. However, it is useless against an Unforgivable Curse.

If the battle is going way too fast for your liking, try using Glacius. This spell can only be used on a target at a time, but it will slow down the pace of the combat.

Depulso falls into an interesting category of spells that could be considered both attack and defense. Depulso repels objects and enemies with a significant force. It is a good choice when the opponents are too close and you need space to get your thoughts in order.

Best utility spells in Hogwarts Legacy

There is more to magic than dueling with every opponent that gets in your way. You need to know a few of helpful spells that can help you survive your everyday.

Accio is useful, especially when you are completing quests that require you to get an object that is out of reach. Alohomora opens almost all the closed doors you encounter.

If anything breaks, don’t worry, use Reparo, and your objects will be as good as new. Disillusionment is mandatory to open the Eye Chests around Hogwarts. Considering that each chest grants 500 Galleons, this spell is clearly worth it.

Unfortunately, wizards are not fond of electricity, and it wasn’t even invented during the events of Hogwarts Legacy. If things get dark, Lumos will help you light the way.
