Taking inspiration from the likes of Neville Longbottom, herbology is all about the magical plant life populating the world of Hogwarts Legacy – including what plants will kill you, what will help you, and what can be made into useful potions.

Attending herbology will teach players about Chinese Chomping Cabbages, Venomous Tentacula, and the iconic Mandrakes. Players can even learn spells like Wingardium Leviosa and Flipendo.


As potions are an integral part of Hogwarts Legacy’s combat, Potion class should be an important part of every Hogwarts Legacy student’s curriculum. Players will learn about a variety of different potions and even meet side characters like Garreth Weasley during this class, so it’s very much worth the time.

Additionally, students will learn Depulso and Diffindo through Potions class, which are two more helpful spells. Diffindo in particular is a very strong Damage spell that is effective against tough enemies like Trolls.

Defense Against the Dark Arts

Compete in duels, learn spells, and more with the Defense Against the Dark Arts.

Defence Against the Dark Art class is vital for protection, especially against spells and the curses confirmed to be present within the game. It’s also a great class to duel and learn some extra offensive spells.

Players will learn Harry Potter’s trademark spell, Expelliarmus, through Defence Against the Dark Arts, as well as Incendio. Both of these spells play a big role in combat and puzzle-solving so fans won’t want to miss them.

Charms is another fantastic class available in Hogwarts Legacy as it contains spells to help you get by as a student. After all, you always need to learn Wingardium Leviosa in your first year at Hogwarts.

This class is ideal for those wanting to manipulate the world around them and will likely help you navigate those puzzles dotted around the world.


Magical Beasts are a major part of Hogwarts Legacy, as players can rescue and breed magical beasts in the Room of Requirement. However, students will have to attend their first Beasts class before they can do so.

Assignments given by attending Beasts class will also net players useful tools like the Nab-sack, Beast Feed, and the Beast Petting brush. Additionally, students can learn the Damage spell Bombarda through this magical class.


While students won’t really see the future while attending Divination class, they will still interact with iconic wizarding fortune-telling methods, like Tessomancy.

Additionally, students can learn Descendo through assignments given after attending Divination class.


Flying class will probably be many players’ favorite class to attend in Hogwarts Legacy, as it’s the key to finally unlocking broom flight in the game.

Like in the Harry Potter films, students will call their brooms to them, learn the basics of flying, and even have the chance to take a joy ride around the castle grounds. But expect to get chewed out by the Flying Professor if you choose to break school rules.


While this class is purely tied to the main story, Astronomy is a class that appears in Hogwarts Legacy that fans of the film series didn’t really get to see. Astronomy will open up one of the activities players can take on in the open world, via Astronomy Tables.

Additionally, this class will introduce the Ravenclaw companion Amit Thakkar. While he’s a bit bookish and not used to dueling, he will certainly have your back when the going gets rough.


Finally, players will attend Transfiguration with a familiar professor. Here, students will learn the art of Transfiguration and even learn how to cast the spell in combat.

Eagle-eyed Harry Potter fans may even notice a fun Easter Egg when exploring the Transfiguration classroom that harkens back to the second Harry Potter film.
