Part of those, and maybe even the most important, are Talent Points. Here’s everything you need to know about talent points in Hogwarts Legacy.

Disclaimer: While the creator of the Harry Potter franchise was not directly involved in the creation of Hogwarts Legacy, their comments on social media around transgender people are hurtful and dangerous given the size of their platform. 

We’d implore you to read our explainer of the controversy so far, and consider supporting trans rights charities where possible.

Hogwarts Legacy Talents: What Are They?

Talent Points in Hogwarts Legacy allow your character to boost the effectiveness of spells and potions. For example, with Transformation Mastery, any enemies struck with the Transformation spell transform into explosive objects.

To acquire talent points, you get these with each level up, so you’ll constantly be able to progress as you play through the game.
