How to beat Hogsmeade Troll in Hogwarts Legacy

During the ‘Welcome to Hogsmeade’ quest you’ll encounter a Troll boss fight and while you will be accompanied by another student, you’ll have to deal the majority of the damage on your own.

As this battle happens so early into the game, you’ll be limited with the number of spells you have. It’s worth noting that the Troll is immune to Accio and Levioso, so don’t waste time attempting to cast these spells

Instead, focus on basic attacking the beast and dishing out as much damage as possible. The Troll’s attacks are telegraphed so wait for it to charge and then use a dodge roll to avoid its attacks. Also, remember to keep your distance to avoid its AoE smash ability.

Finally, if you want to maximize your damage, use your dodge rolls to get behind the troll. Hitting this boss from behind does increased damage, and allows you to melt its health bar with ease.
