The full list of all Spells currently available in Hogwarts Legacy

Hogwarts Legacy Spell List

This guide will list all of the available spells in Hogwarts Legacy, along with images for how each spell looks when used, and where you can unlock the spell. The spells are divided into sections for each type of spell. 

Essential Spells

Essential spells are different to other spells, since they do not need to be slotted and are instead used by pressing a particular key/button in combat or interacting with the object that they relate to. 

Basic Cast

This is the only spell that you will have access to at the beginning of the game. It launches a projectile at the targeted enemy, dealing a modest amount of damage to enemies and objects.

Revelio can be cast almost at any time after learning it. It highlights objects in the world that you can interact with, and is useful for seeing loot from a distance or through walls, seeing enemies that are otherwise out of sight, or for helping to solve puzzles. 

Unlocked in the Path to Hogwarts quest.

Alohomora

Alohomora can be used to open locked doors and chests. You'll gain access to this spell some way into the game, and then be presented with subsequent opportunities to improve it. This is because locks in the game have a level - one, two or three. The first version of Alohomora you get can only open level one locks. 

Unlocked in The Caretaker's Lunar Lament Quest.

Petrificus Totalus

This is a stealth-focused spell that can only be used at short range. When sneaking up behind enemies, you'll be prompted to cast the spell, which will permanently knock weaker enemies out of action. More powerful enemies will only be stunned by this for a short time though, so be careful.

Unlocked in the Percival Rackham's Trial Quest.

Control Spells

Control spells are used to stun enemies or slow down their movements, and can also be used to solve some puzzles in Hogwarts Legacy. 

Arresto Momentum

Slows down objects and enemies, giving you extra time to plan your next move or get some distance between yourself and melee-focused enemies. 

Unlocked in Madam Kogawa's Assignment 2.

Force spells are used to move objects and enemies around, and are great for controlling the distance between yourself and enemies in combat.

Accio is also an important spell for solving many puzzles in Hogwarts Legacy, and can be used to retrieve collectibles such as Field Guide Pages, as well as many quest items in the game.

Expelliarmus will disarm most enemies, causing them to temporarily drop their wand or weapon, however powerful enemies such as bosses or large monsters are immune to this effect.

Incendio

Incendio is a fire spell that sets enemies alight and deals considerable damage. However it is limited by its very short range. It works best if your playstyle makes heavy use of Accio to pull enemies close to you. If you find yourself fighting at long range most of the time, then you're probably better off using Confringo instead. 

Unlocked in Professor Hecat's Assignment 1.

Utility Spells

Utility spells is a bit of a catch-all term for spells that are not used in combat but fulfil a variety of other purposes. Some of these can be used in puzzles, while others serve very specific purposes.

Disillusionment 

Disillusionment is a stealth spell that turns your character mostly invisible. If you get too close to enemies or make too much noise, then they can still find you when you are using this spell. It is useful if you want to avoid a particularly hard fight, or simply prefer sneaking around and avoiding combat when possible. 

Unlocked in Secrets of the Restricted Section quest.

Unforgivable Curses

Unforgivable Curses are very powerful Dark Magic curses. Due to their nature, you might want to progress through the game without even learning or using these spells at all. However they are available if you do decide that you want to use them. 

Avada Kedavra

Also known as the Killing Curse, this is the most powerful Unforgivable Curse, can be used to instantly kill an enemy.

Crucio

Also known as the Cruciatus Curse or the Torture Curse, Crucio stuns an enemy for a long time, deals damage over time to them, and curses them causing them to take extra damage from other attacks. You can also upgrade Crucio with talents, causing enemies cursed by Crucio to spread their cursed status to nearby enemies when they're hit by subsequent attacks. This option makes Crucio very powerful for empowering your offensive capabilities, if you choose to pursue a playstyle centered around Dark Magic. 

Unlocked in the In the Shadow of the Study quest.
