Hogwarts Legacy Classes You Can Take

Attending classes and lessons play a huge role in your progression in Hogwarts Legacy. This guide will go over all the subjects you can study.

Being a true Harry Porter fan, it is no doubt that grabbing the wand and learning new spells is one of the most important aspects of being a Wizard. 

However, Hogwarts Legacy doesn’t follow the traditional way of providing classes, and each spell is locked by default. Therefore, you must take part in different lessons and specific subjects to unlock the spells you want to cast. 

Luckily, Hogwarts Legacy accepts your letter and provides you with the opportunity to be a part of their magical school. Once you are accepted to the school, you can take the Hogwarts Legacy Classes and subjects to learn new skills to master in the future.

Here in this guide, we have explained how you can unlock spells by attending each class and subject in Hogwarts Legacy.  

  • Astronomy
  • Beasts
  • Charms
  • Divination
  • Defense Against the Dark Arts
  • Flying
  • Herbology
  • Potions
  • Transfiguration

Hogwarts Legacy all classes and subjects

The Hogwarts class system is divided into nine sections, with each class consisting of a subject reference a Harry Porter easter egg. Following are all the classes and Subjects you get enrolled in Hogwarts Legacy.

The game will provide a few dialogue options when you will be interacting with Amit. As the conversation ends, Amit will urge you to bring his Telescope and followed by an Astronomy Table present in different areas of Hogwarts. 

Once you have located the two necessary Astronomy items, you’ll have to follow Amit, and walk along the castle wall which is to your right. Use the spells Depulso and Incendio to clear any object which blocks your path. Once the path is clear you can interact with the Astronomy Table.

Upon interaction with the table, you’ll see a diagram, zoom In and align it with the stars. When the diagram aligns with the stars, the quest will conclude.

Beasts (Professor Howin)

You will find this class in the Bell Tower Wing with Professor Howin and Poppy Sweating being the instructors. You’ll receive a Beast petting brush after a brief cutscene. This brush can be used to take care of beasts.
