The talent system is there to allow players to modify some skills and abilities of their characters in the direction they want. It is certainly, not possible to make every character of the game have every skill and ability, so flexibility is given to the player to build their player as they wish.

It is to be noted that a character cannot unlearn one talent and/or replace another as per their wish. This alarms a player to spend their talent points wisely. There are 50 talents that the player can select from, and the spending limit is 36 until the player reaches the max level of 40.

Below are all the best talents that Hogwarts Legacy has to offer. A table is provided, followed by the most critical talents from that category.

Best dark arts builds

Blood Curse is the spell available at the early level 5. The importance of the spell lies in the fact that it helps maximize the utility of the Dark Arts tree. It is to be noted that initially, curses are less efficient.

Disarming Curse and Stunning Curse are the other spells to be used if the cursed nature is to be utilized since Expelliarmus and Stupefy are frequently used in the game.

Level 16 brings with it Enduring Curse. This curse helps align other curses right on target so that more damage is dealt. If your goal is to increase the span of the Unforgiveable Curse, Crucio Mastery, and Imperio Mastery should be used.

The high-level 22 avails the Avada Kedavra Mastery, arguably the game’s most potent spell. The spell is the best for a player if he has to create a robust Dark Arts build. Another spell, Curse Sapper, is a talent that helps improve survivability and should be collected.

Swift spell aids fast travel. Not all areas in the game allow players to fly around so, it is necessary. Lastly, the Wiggenweld potion blocks all attacks thrown at players, which benefits many players.

Level 16 offers two important spells of the game: Basic Cast Airborne Absorption and Evasion Absorption. These two spells are deemed essential to build the Ancient Meter. More talents at this level are subjective to a player’s gaming style.

The best spells of level 22 are Stupefy Expertise and Protego Mastery. Stupefy Expertise is necessary since stupefy is frequently cast. Protego Mastery carries is only for players with a firm grip on timing blocks.

Stealth Talents

There are very few worthy spells for Stealth, but below are the ones deemed as most important.

Like many other games, stealth is crucial for survival and game progression. The stealth talents are mainly used when some difficult areas are to travel sneakily. Petrificus Totalus is the best spell of this talent and must be included because of its one-hit kill ability.

Best room of requirement talent spells

Room of requirement talents differs from others in that they demand more care for their complete utilization. These talents are to be either crafted or bought as consumables and have a stock of them in inventory for use as and when required.

Although some cons coexist with this type of talent, Room of requirement talent also has utility. They are used to increase plant and potion efficiency while combat is underway. Note that the combat can be undertaken successfully also without them.

The most prominent potions are the Edurus Potion and the Maxima Potion. The talent that supplements them is also a bonus that players embrace.

There is a constraint to the number of such talents that can be carried. A player only has one quick slot available for use. This way, players must use the items menu, select a different talent for the item needed, and then use the next one.

Best Talent Builds

All the available talents have been covered above, but the selection of the most superior talent comes down to the gaming style of a player and what makes him feel the most comfortable. To select a talent, a player should keep these two in mind: Damage, and Functionality.

  1. Damage-Oriented Build:

    • Prioritize unlocking spells with high damage potential, such as unforgivable curses and Dark Arts Talents.
    • Focus on maximizing damage output to make combat encounters easier.
    • Choose talents and abilities that enhance the effectiveness of damaging spells.
    • This build is ideal for players who prefer a more aggressive playstyle and enjoy quickly dispatching enemies.
  2. Functionality-Oriented Build:

    • Focus on unlocking talents and abilities that provide strategic advantages in combat.
    • Prioritize spells and talents that offer crowd control effects, such as slows and stuns, to control enemy movements.
    • Utilize potions and plants that provide tactical advantages and allow the player to gain control over the battlefield.
    • This build is suited for players who prefer a more tactical approach to combat, focusing on controlling the flow of battle and minimizing enemy threats.

Ending Notes

These were the best talents that a player can choose to get if he is unsure of his preferences.

Here are all the landing platform locations for the Hogwarts Legacy.

The ending note is that as a player spends time in Hogwarts Legacy, he becomes aware of what talents will empower him and give him leverage. He will also realize which talents is he more comfortable with and so he should try to build on those talents.

Otherwise, for someone not knowing how the talents differ, and sees all talents as substitutes, this guide shall suffice.
