Hogwarts Legacy gives you a bunch of powerful dueling spells as you progress through the game. From Bombarda to Confringo, you can deal a lot of damage to your opponents, but the undeniably most powerful spell is the unforgivable curse Avada Kedavra. Or not?
While you can easily kill your enemies and even some bosses in one fell swoop with Avada Kedavra, it also has a fairly long 90-second cooldown – and, impractically, is a forbidden curse. However, resourceful fans have already found a practical alternative to knock down opponents with one blow: namely the simplest spell in the Harry Potter series.
JK Rowling’s transphobia: The success of Hogwarts Legacy indirectly benefits Harry Potter author JK Rowling, who participates through existing publishing rights and the associated sale of the books. Rowling continues to be active in anti-LGBTQIA+ rhetoric and actively supports anti-trans policies in the UK. If you want to find out more about the topic, you will find a summary of the most important controversies surrounding Hogwarts Legacy here.
Wingardium Leviosa as a battle spell
We’re talking, of course, about Wingardium Leviosa, the first spell Harry Potter learns in the films. In Hogwarts Legacy, too, it is not actually intended for combat, but belongs to the utility category of spells.
Of course, that doesn’t mean you can’t use it in duels. Although he doesn’t do any direct damage to opponents, he lets you lift heavy objects without any problems. And if you paid attention to the troll fight in the first film, you should know what’s coming next.
Like tiktok user sarthegames namely shows in the video, you can simply move boulders, barrels and Co. in the area over opponents and then let them fall on them. Or you can turn the items into bowling balls with Wingardium Leviosa and simply ram them into your enemies repeatedly.
The whole thing not only offers a lot of creative possibilities, but also has a clear advantage over an Avada Kedavra spell: Wingardium Leviosa has no cooldown. You can use the spell as many times as you want.

Here’s how Hogwarts Legacy continues
Hogwarts Legacy is currently only available for PC and current-gen consoles, with PS4, Xbox One and Switch versions to follow. But the title is already so successful that a sequel to the Harry Potter game is almost certain. And the hopes for a DLC were recently rekindled by one of the developers.
As if all that weren’t enough, there is even now a report that a TV series based on Hogwarts Legacy is in the pipeline. So fans can almost certainly look forward to more content in the future.
