Top 10 Hogwarts Legacy talents to spend points on

Hogwarts legacy


In a previous post I ranked all the Hogwarts Legacy spells from worst to best to tell you where to invest your talent points or not. But there are more talent point options than just spells, and I thought I’d rewrite this list and include both spells and other talents that could be just as useful.

Most of them might still be spell-based, as most perks do, but you should consider a few that you’d otherwise ignore.

Here are my top 10 in descending order:

10. Revelio Mastery (Basic, Level 16) – I know this seems boring, but I would definitely recommend it if you’re at all interested in exploration in this game. Yes, it looks like you can see a lot of stuff with Revelio now, but later on, when you’ve cleared out more stuff, you’ll want the expanded range to look for new secrets and items that you might not have found otherwise .

9. Swift (Core, Level 5) – This effectively turns your dodge into a teleportation move that pretty much triples your combat mobility. It’s really hard to live without this magic.

8. Protego Expertise (Core, Level 16) – I would eventually buy all Protego spells because you use them more than literally anything else in combat, but this one, which bounces two projectiles back at enemies on perfect block, is more useful than most.

7. Bombarda Mastery (Spell Level 16) – This simply turns this move into a full-fledged AOE Nuke, which is one of the best damage options in the game. Diffindo does higher damage, but the talent upgrade isn’t as useful.

6. Noxious (Room of Requirement Level 22) – I don’t think I can overstate how awesome plants are in Hogwarts Legacy, and this specimen turns your Venomous Tentacle into a massive, shield-busting behemoth.

5. Ancient Magic Throw Expertise (Core, Level 5) – Allows you to throw disarmed weapons back at enemies. This works particularly well on goblins and armored knights, as well as troll boulders, all of which deal great damage when knocked back. It’s also one of the coolest moves in the game.

4. Spell Lore 1-3 (Core, Level 5-16) – I’m cheating here by combining these, but without question you need to expand your spell inventory slots as much as possible. You’ll end up with 16 spells to use in combat, and that’s not even room for utility spells, building spells, or pet grooming tools.

3. Transform Mastery (Spell Level 22) – This is the last core spell you unlock, but the talent point upgrade here transforms enemies into an exploding keg that not only instantly kills the transformed enemy, but anyone you throw it at , blows up. Incredible move.

2. Fertilizer (Room of Requirement Level 5) – This perk gives you two nibble cabbages for every cabbage you spawn and effectively doubles their damage output, which is already among the best in the game. Seriously, I know it sucks to fight cabbage, but these things are super potent, and you can easily grow infinite amounts of them in the Room of Requirement.

1. Avada Kedavra Mastery (Dark Arts, Level 22) – Killing an enemy kills the killing curse, kills all curse enemies too, got it? Combined with the other curse spells you unlock in this tree (and if you go for dark magic you should have them all) this is a space clearing move most of the time.

At the end of the game you will have around 30-40 points to spend, so there are certainly many more to choose from, but these are my favorites. Enjoy.
