A Potting table is an important tool for crafting potions and items in Hogwarts Legacy. Find out which one is the best!
Hogwarts Legacy: Potting Table Guide
A Potting Table is one of the tools present in the Room of Requirement. They grow plants used in combat as a weapon or for boosting your stats. The potting table has a specific capacity for each type of plant, and you can grow particular plants on a selected table.
The ideal choice is to buy a potting table with a small pot and a potting table with a large pot. They will be enough to serve your needs at the beginner level. You can invest in better builds to cater to your needs as your level increases.
On higher levels, the difficulty of enemies increases, which demands more usage of such items. Therefore, you can pick on Dark Wizards and Trolls much more easily.
A Potting Table is used to grow certain plants.
There are several variants, and the cheapest one, Potting Table with Three Small Pots, sells for 400 Galleons.
The variants of Potting Tables are based on the number and size of the pots.
The Potting Table with one Large Pot sells for 1000 Galleons.
Moonstones are used to craft Large Pots.
Players can find Moonstones in the open areas as crystals or by using Evanesco Spell on items in the Room of Requirement.
You get a potting table for free when you visit Hogsmeade for the first time. Nevertheless, you must go to the Tomes and Scrolls Shop in Hogsmeade to buy more. This shop sells recipes or blueprints for various potting tables.
The cost of these tables varies as their specifications vary. For the basic level, you can buy a potting table with a small pot for 400 Galleons and a potting table with a large pot for 1000 Galleons.
In case you don’t have enough money, you can always sell your extra gear in the “Sell” section of the shop.
The following table summarizes the prices of each potting table available at the shop:
Potting Tables are available in the Room of Requirements, one of the Secret Rooms of Hogwarts. Any potting table you buy from the shop can only be placed here. To acquire it, you need to learn Conjuring Spell first.
This spell is learned by doing Professor Weasely’s Quest, “The Room of Requirement Quest.” Once you have learned it, you can use their recipes to conjure the tables you have bought.
To conjure a table, use the Conjuring Spell to create a menu with 12 classes. Choose the Herbology Icon (icon having a leaf) and then select the desired category of the potting table.
All the tables you buy will be present here, and you can place them in the Room of Requirement any time you like.
However, crafting a table costs Moonstones as well. There are three ways to obtain Moonstones:
These minerals are usually found at random places in the open areas present in a crystal-like material, which drops the Moonstone when broken using any spell.
The other place to obtain Moonstone is to buy it from several locations near Hogsmeade.
You can also convert unnecessary items to Moonstone using the Evanesco Spell.
Using The Potting Table
Using the Potting Table is pretty simple in Hogwarts Legacy.
All you need to do is press the action key i.e., press F on the PC or X on the console to use the table.
A small window with all available plants will appear.
You can grow the plants whose recipe you have already bought from various shops.
Once the seed is placed in the pot, it will start growing, and a timer will start. All plants have different growth timings. For instance, the Mandrake grows in 15 minutes, while the Dittany grows in 10 minutes.
Afterward, you can press the action key again, and the prepared item will be placed in your inventory. Then you can re-use the potting table.
The size of the plant determines the required size of the pot. You can grow a small plant in a large pot spellcraft but the opposite method does not work. Therefore, you must have various pots to grow all the required plants. Usually, small plants take 10 minutes, and large plants take 15 minutes.
To grow plants, the only raw material you require is the seeds. Placing the seeds in the potting tables grows the respective plant after the timer ends. To buy seeds, you must go to Dogweed and Deathcap or the Magic Neep.
There is a total of 8 categories of seeds present in Hogwarts Legacy. These are divided according to their rarity and the shop that sells them.
The Magic Neep store outside Hogsmeade sells seeds of common or basic rarity. These seeds are cheap, and their plants are used as raw materials for crafting several potions.
Dogweed and Deathcap
Dogweed and Deathcap is a shop in Hogsmeade’s Northern outer premises. This shop sells rare seeds, which are used to grow combat-related plants. They are a little expensive and used as offensive or defense items while fighting.
Chinese Chomping Cabbage Seed
Venomous Tentacula Seed
One of the important things that you can buy along with the seeds is fertilizer. It costs about 300 Galleons, enhancing the potting table’s production rate.
This is very helpful if you are in a hurry and want to use your utilities for a critical boss fight.
Potting Table Customization
Like many other pieces of equipment in the Room of Requirement, the potting tables can also be customized to a certain level. To customize the table, you will get the option when you are going to change its location or place it for the first time.
The color scheme is pretty decent, with a small variety of colors.
You can alter the table size to make it small or large. The table size does not affect its productivity, but smaller-sized stuff can free up a lot of room for extra tools.
As for now, there are only four themes present for the potting tables. The selection process is similar to altering the size of the table. You can see the option when placing or moving it somewhere else. These themes are:
Scientific Potting Table
Botanical Potting Table
Eclectic Potting Table
Gothic Potting Table
In this guide, I summarized all the information about potting tables in Hogwarts Legacy. The game offers many options to choose among the potting tables, but I suggest that you go for a small table with three pots and a large table with one or two pots. These items will be used time by time during the game, and you can always upgrade to a better one by visiting the Tomes and Scrolls Shop in Hogsmeade.
