How to Unlock Talents in Hogwarts Legacy

To unlock Talents, bring up the main menu and scroll over to the “Talents” tab. Select which category you want, choose the Talent you want to unlock, and hold down Select.

Of course, you will need Talent Points to be able to unlock one of these abilities. You will earn five talent points once you reach Level 5 and from then on you will receive 1 per Level.

Once you unlock a Talent, you will not be able to refund it and get back a token. This makes choosing which ability to get next a much harder decision.

Of course, leveling up is a big factor in gaining these points, so if you want to unlock points fast, you will need to know how to level up quickly.

How Many Talent Points Can You Get in Hogwarts Legacy?

There are a total of 48 Talents but only a maximum of 36 Talent Points are available to earn. Once you hit the max level cap of 40, you will no longer earn points.

Best Talents to Unlock in Hogwarts Legacy

With only 40 Talent Points available and 48 Talents to choose from, selecting which ones to unlock will be entirely about how you wish to play.

However, there are a few that you should definitely unlock no matter the style of Wizard or Witch you are.

Core Talents

  • All of Core
    • We recommend unlocking the whole of the Core Talent Tree in Hogwarts Legacy. This set of Talents contains some of the most useful abilities in Hogwarts Legacy.
    • If you wish to save some points for another tree, you can avoid Protego Expertise and Protego Mastery. This is because Perfect Protego can be difficult to achieve.

Spells Talents

  • All of Spells
    • Another group of talents we suggest you maximize is those in the spells branch. This set will boost the abilities of the spells you learn in Hogwarts making them more beneficial in battle.
    • The Transformation Mastery, in particular, can be very useful as it turns enemies into red explosive barrels which deal high damage when thrown.

Dark Arts Talents

  • Blood Curse
    • Blood curse will deal damage to all cursed enemies making your attacks more effective.
  • Slowing / Disarming / Knockback Curse
    • Unlocking these three spells will curse enemies when they are hit with Arresto Momentum, Expelliarmus, and Flipendo.
  • Curse Sapper
    • Killing enemies who have been cursed will restore some of your health making it easier to survive tough battles.
  • Avada Kedavra Mastery
    • Striking an enemy with Avada Kedavra will kill all cursed enemies. One downside of this Talent is the spell’s long cooldown.

Stealth Talents

  • Human Demiguise
    • This Talent will allow you to sprint while using the Disillusionment spell. This is not as useful as some of the other Talents but it will allow you to complete stealth objectives quicker.

Room of Requirement Talents

  • Focus Potion Potency
