Hogwarts Legacy potions play a vital role as you journey through the magical world, and that’s why you should know what concoctions you can get your hands on, as well as what they do. Just make sure you get the correct ingredients. The last thing you need is to experience the Hermione Granger Polyjuice potion fiasco first-hand.
Alongside potions, there are plenty of Hogwarts Legacy spells for you to learn, three of which encompass the Hogwarts Legacy Dark Arts. Of course, you can discover plenty of them through Hogwarts Legacy classes, and perhaps even through the Hogwarts Legacy characters and Hogwarts Legacy companions.
Here’s everything you need to know about Hogwarts Legacy potions.
What are Hogwarts Legacy potions?
Hogwarts Legacy potions are concoctions that you learn in your potions class, which you can then brew to help you on your journey. Some are healing remedies, while others may help you reach places you shouldn’t really be in – who needs an invisibility cloak when you can impersonate a teacher?

Hogwarts Legacy has drawn considerable criticism during its development, largely due to the fact that the creator of the Harry Potter series, J.K. Rowling, has made a number of transphobic remarks on social media in recent years.
While Avalanche has confirmed that J.K. Rowling is not “directly involved” in the development of Hogwarts Legacy, it is working with “her team” and Portkey Games, a Warner Bros. label dedicated to launching new experiences inspired by J.K. Rowling’s original stories. It is currently unclear whether she will earn any royalties from the game’s sale, but it is likely given it is based on her original body of work.
