One of the most recognizable spells from the Wizarding World is Wingardium Leviosa. The first Harry Potter book and film made sure of that. As players might have expected, the spell has made its way into Hogwarts Legacy, but players won’t have access to Wingardium Leviosa right from the start. Instead, they will need to complete several main story and side quests before they’re able to add Wingardium Leviosa to their spell profiles.
Wingardium Leviosa is actually one of the more crucial spells you can learn in Hogwarts Legacy. It allows you to solve some of the game’s more difficult puzzles and can also be quite useful in combat, levitating your enemies while you deal some free damage. If you want to learn exactly when you’re able to learn Wingardium Leviosa in Hogwarts Legacy, keep reading the guide below.
Getting Wingardium Leviosa in Hogwarts Legacy
You unlock the ability to learn Wingardium Leviosa by completing Professor Garlick’s Assignment number one. Once you’re anywhere from five-ten hours into Hogwarts Legacy, you will receive a quest that tells you to attend Herbology class, where you first meet Professor Garlick. After attending class and learning about Mandrakes, you will receive an owl from the professor telling you to complete her new Assignment.
The Assignment requires players to acquire and use one Venomous Tentacula and a Mandrake at the same time. You can buy both of these plants at the Dogweed and Deathcap shop in Hogsmeade (located at the very north of the town). Once you acquired both of the plants, use one and then use the other right after by going to your Tools menu. This will complete the Assignment, allowing you to return to Herbology class and Professor Garlick to learn Wingardium Leviosa.
After talking to the professor and performing the wand movement, you will learn Wingardium Leviosa. You can practice the spell on the plants inside of the Herbology greenhouse and add the spell to one of your profiles so you can use it in exploration or combat.
