What Is The Petricius Totalus

If you are a fan of the Harry Potter universe, then you must be well acquainted with the spell petrificus totatlus, as it has been used in it on multiple occasions. For instance, when the fan-favorite Hermione used it on Neville Longbottom in The Sorcerer’s Stone.

In the series, petrificus totalus is a petrification spell that paralyzes you and turns you into a statue, taking away your ability to move or speak. However, the petrificus totalus in Hogwarts Legacy is a spell that is used to perform a stealth kill.

Keeping that in mind, this spell especially comes in handy when a head-on fight can turn out to be too much to handle. With it, you can easily take care of small to medium enemies. In addition to that, you can also use it against larger enemies. It will not kill them but will make your job of sealing their fate considerably easier.

Getting Petricius Totalus 

As far as getting the petrificus totalus spell is concerned, you will have to wait till you reach and complete the main quest, “Secrets of the Restricted Section.” In this quest, you will embark on a mission to uncover the secrets of the restricted section.

However, you will not be able to achieve this alone. Therefore, you will be accompanied on this mission by Sebastian Sallow, who apparently knows the way into the restricted section. To get there without getting noticed, you will need to be extremely sneaky.

For that, Sebastian will teach you the Disillusionment Charm, which will allow you to blend in with your surroundings. Once you have learned the disillusionment charm, you will have unlocked the petrificus totalus as well. After all, what use is being sneaky if you cannot make a sneak attack.

Disillusionment Charm

You should keep in mind that you get petrificus totalus as a result of a main quest. That means that there is no way for you to miss it. Therefore, if you do not have it yet, just press on the throttle, and you will eventually get it.

Now that the basics are out of the way, let us talk about how you can use petrificus totalus effectively.

How To Use Petrificus Totalus

Using the petrificus totalus spell can be a little confusing at first because it does not provide you with an in-depth explanation as to how the spell works. However, you do not have anything to worry about as we have got you covered with our Hogwarts Legacy petrificus totatlus guide.

Below we have listed down the steps that you need to follow in order to cast this spell:

  • The first thing that you need to do is use the disillusionment charm that you learned from Sebastian Sallow. Once you do that, you will basically become invisible. This will be the step towards ensuring that you are not noticed by the enemy.
  • Once you are invisible, sneak up on the enemy that you want to take care of. Make sure that you stay focused during this part. In case an enemy gets suspicious of your presence, you should use your environment to your advantage. For example, hide behind a rock or a tree.
  • Before we move forward, you need to make sure that you do not use any of your other spells that will let your presence known to your enemies. Once that happens, you will no longer be able to cast the petrificus totalus spell.
  • Anyways, once you are close enough to the enemy, a prompt will appear on the screen that will allow you to use the petrificus totalus. All that is left for you to do is press the right button to cast this amazing spell.

If you are able to complete the stealth kill, you will remain undetected and can go on to repeat the same process again.

Upgrading Petrificus Totalus

The petrificus totalus spell is cool, right. Well, you can make it even cooler by getting the Petrificus Totalus Mastery. You can get it in the talents section for a talent point. Something that you need to keep in mind is that you will only be able to get it after you have reached level 22.

Once you have the Petrificus Totalus Mastery, you will be able to take care of more than just one enemy by casting the spell only once.
