In Hogwarts Legacy, Core Talents might not be the most important part of a Wizard’s strength, but you shouldn’t ignore them.
In Hogwarts Legacy, the Talent System is made up of five different parts: Spells, Dark Arts, Core, Stealth, and Room of Requirement. The story of the Harry Potter role-playing game is about a fifth-year transfer student at Hogwarts who needs to catch up with their classmates. The Talent System is one of the most important parts of the game because it helps the main character get stronger as they level up.
Every time a player gains a level, they get a Talent Point. Once a character gets to level 5, the Talent System is unlocked, and players can spend their points on 36 different Talents. Out of these, the Core Talent has 16 skills that can be unlocked and learned. There are, however, a few that stand out from the rest.
Spell Knowledge I, II, III
Spells in Hogwarts Legacy are kept in Spell Sets, which are like little boxes. Each of these can hold 4 spells at once, which makes it hard for the player to switch between spells every time they need to. Spell Sets are helpful in this situation. Players can unlock three more sets on top of the one they start with, giving them a total of 16 powers when all of the Spell Knowledge Talents have been unlocked.
Players can effortlessly switch spells and Spell Sets after unlocking specific Talents, making fighting easier. The player gets an extra Spell Set for every level in Spell Knowledge.
- Spell Knowledge I: Level 5
- Spell Knowledge II: Level 5
- Spell Knowledge III: Level 16
Wiggenweld Potency I, II
The Wiggenweld Potion helps heal the character in some ways. Even though it doesn’t fully heal the player, it’s better to have some help in a tough fight than none at all. When players first start out, Wiggenweld Potion doesn’t do much to heal them. The Wiggenweld Potency Talent needs to be unlocked in order to make the drink stronger.
The Wiggenweld strength Talent has two levels, and each one makes the strength of the potion stronger. Players might be curious about what would happen if they skipped the first Talent and went straight for the second. In that case, only one Talent would be added to the drink. Both of them add the same amount of value, and if you had both, it would heal you more.
- Wiggenweld Potency I: Level 5
- Wiggenweld Potency II: Level 16
In Spacebar Clicker, dodging is one of the most important ways to fight. Swift is a simple but useful Talent that in Hogwarts Legacy is just a better way to dodge. It gives players the ability to disappear and quickly return in a certain direction when they hold down the dodge button. This is like a small teleportation spell.
The Talent excels against huge, flashy, and destructive attacks with a wide area of effect. It also works well in normal fighting, as long as the dodge is used at the right time and not too often. To use Swift, a player must be at least Level 5.
Ancient Magic is a strong kind of magic that does a lot of damage to enemies when the Ancient Magic Metre is full. It’s the ultimate move, and you can charge it up by fighting. The Evasion Absorption Talent allows faster Ancient Magic collection than hitting foes.
Evasion boosts the Ancient Magic Metre when the Talent is unlocked. This makes dodging in battle both effective and satisfying. Evasion Absorption can be unlocked when a player reaches Level 16.
In Hogwarts Legacy, you use the defence spell Protego to block. As seen in the Harry Potter films, Protego is a shield that protects the user from strikes from the enemy. If the conditions are met, Protego Expertise is a more powerful form of blocking. But players won’t be able to use the Talent just because they unlocked it.
Protego Expertise only works when Perfect Protego (or Perfect Parry) is used to properly block a spell. If you do this right, you will send two projectiles back at your enemies. Even if they stop, they will still take damage. So, Protego Expertise makes stopping one level stronger. For this Talent, you need to be at Level 16.
Protego Mastery is the best way to block in Hogwarts Legacy, since it is the most advanced way to block. It is a late-game Talent that helps a lot when fighting multiple enemies at once. Protego Mastery unlocks a devastating blast that breaches enemy shields when Perfect Protego is utilised for blocking.
When multiple enemies attack at once, it’s hard to break their shields. Because shields come in different colours, players must use a certain type of power to break through them. But when there are too many enemies, it is hard to aim spells at each one. Protego Mastery breaks opponent shields and blocks strikes. For this Talent, a player must be at least Level 22.
Stupefy is a passive spell in Hogwarts Legacy that can only be used when you block an enemy attack. You can’t cast it on your own. The spell stuns the adversary but does no damage. Players can use the spell more effectively once they hit Level 22 and unlock a talent that lets them do so.
Stupefy Expertise is a more powerful form of parrying that hurts enemies when Stupefy is used. This makes parrying an effective way to fight because it stuns enemies.
Hogwarts Legacy is out now for PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X/S. Versions for PS4, and Xbox One will come out on May 5, and a Switch version will come out on July 25.
