Hogwarts Legacy Best Spell Combos To Use: Combination Tips & Tricks

Hogwarts Legacy is a game where magic and spells reign supreme. As you embark on your journey as a young wizard, you will encounter numerous challenges and foes that require using powerful spells to overcome. While each spell in the game is potent in its own right, the key to unlocking their full potential lies in knowing how to use them together in the most effective combinations.

But fret not. This guide will explore the best spell combinations to use in Hogwarts Legacy, regardless of whether you use a Harry Potter-inspired or a more sinister Lord Voldemort-style build in the game. By utilizing these combinations, you can deal even more damage to your opponents and overcome obstacles with greater ease. So read on to discover the best spell combos in Hogwarts Legacy.

REMINDER - Hogwarts Legacy was due to launch on PS4 and Xbox One on April 4, but now won't release until 5 May 2023.

Best Spell Combos To Use In Hogwarts Legacy

It's important to note that the spells we discuss are not the only combinations available to you. You may find success with other pairings depending on your playstyle and preferences. However, we have extensively tested and analyzed these combinations and believe them to be the most effective in many situations, especially if you aren't maxing the Dark Arts masteries.

Petrificus Totalus and Glacius Combo

Petrificus Totalus is one of the most powerful spells in the game, but it can only be used under the effects of the Disillusionment Charm. However, you can use it in combat against the final enemy by freezing them with Glacius, which disables them, and then casting Petrificus Totalus to shatter them instantly.

It's worth noting that this strategy won't work against enemies with larger health pools. In this case, use Imperio (learn how to unlock the Imperius Curse in Hogwarts Legacy) to control them for 20 seconds and deal damage using Petrificus Totalus while they are controlled. This combo is only effective in one-on-one combat but can quickly take down a single target.

Depulso, Descendo, and Levioso Combo

Depulso deals no damage on its own, but it can cause an enemy to collide with an object, which deals a decent chunk of damage. Likewise, you can also use this spell to cast enemies off cliffs, killing them instantly. Better still, you can use Levioso and Depulso together to launch an enemy into the air, shooting even further away and dealing significantly more damage.

You can also extend this spell to Descendo to slam an enemy to the ground for even more damage, especially if they are in the air. However, it's worth noting that this combo requires situational awareness, but it is perfect for throwing enemies around like rag dolls.

Red Damage Spell Combos

You can stack red damage spells like Incendio, Confringo, and Diffindo with Glacius to freeze an enemy and amplify the damage dealt by the red spell attacks. Notably, Incendio deals even more damage than Diffindo, but it has a very short range. In this case, you can use Accio to pull enemies close and burn them with Incendio. To maximize your damage, add Levioso and Descendo to this rotation, and then freeze the enemy with Glacius to burn them to a crisp with your final hit with Incendio.

Transformation and Depulso Combo (Insta-kill!)

Finally, you can insta-kill an enemy by using Transformation to turn an enemy into a wooden barrel, following it up with Depulso to blast the barrel away (or using Ancient Magic Throw) to kill the target, even infamous foes, instantly. This combo is great for crowd control and insta-killing most targets, but it does not work on every enemy (like Trolls, for example).

And there you have it! That's everything you need to know about the best spell combinations in Hogwarts Legacy to dominate your foes and impress your fellow students. We would like to give a special thanks to YouTuber JorRaptor, whose in-depth analysis and testing of the game's spells and mechanics helped inform this guide.
