All Hogwarts Legacy classes and lessons to attend

Hogwarts isn’t just for messing around with magic, but it’s also for learning. Make sure to attend your Hogwarts Legacy classes and lessons when you can.

Hogwarts Legacy Classes: A teacher can be seen

If you’re attending the most magical school in the world anyway, you may as well take part in some Hogwarts Legacy classes and lessons. These will help you hone your skills when it comes to spellcasting, among other things in the Wizarding World. Some of these are pretty advanced though, thanks to the fact you’re a fifth-year student.

We spent a lot of time in these lessons during our Hogwarts Legacy review playthrough. Before you walk through the doors of Hogwarts Legacy and take those much-needed classes, you should read the list of all Hogwarts Legacy spells, so you can understand what you may be taught. And for those with a darker side, it may be worth finding out about each of the Hogwarts Legacy Unforgivable Curses.

All Hogwarts Legacy classes and lessons to attend

There are a total of seven Classes and Lessons in Hogwarts Legacy. They are:

Defence Against the Dark Arts

One of the most iconic classes in the Wizarding World, the Defence Against the Dark Arts lesson will help you hone your spells to fight against the evils of the world, such as dark wizards. You’ll want to take these lessons if you plan to go up against anyone using Hogwarts Legacy Unforgivable Curses.


Charms class is all about teaching charms, or enchantments. These change properties of an item, as opposed to completely changing an object. You’ll learn spells like Accio in this class.


If you can hear the high-pitch screaming of a Mandrake, Herbology is likely the next class on your list. In this class, set in the greenhouses at Hogwarts, you’ll learn about a variety of plants, such as the aforementioned Mandrake or the Chinese Chomping Cabbage.

If you hope to brew a variety of incredible mixtures that will help you in your journey, Potions class is essential. You’ll learn about the ingredients found in the Wizarding World, as well as how to mix them to create some incredible concoctions.


The perfect class for learning about all of the Hogwarts Legacy fantastic beasts, the Beasts class will help teach you how to look after the different species near Hogwarts, including creatures like Puffeskin and Nifflers.


For those of you who like stargazing, the Astronomy class will teach you about all of the various stars in the universe, including the constellations.


This class is all about predicting the future, or learning future events, by using a variety of tools and rituals. It’s where the iconic crystal balls come into play, as well as visions.

You should definitely attend these lessons often, so you can start learning the Hogwarts Legacy best spells and work towards a Hogwarts Legacy best builds soon in the game.

That’s all of the Hogwarts classes and lessons you’ll be taking part in during your year at Hogwarts. When you next have free time between classes, make sure to find out more about how to get a broom in Hogwarts Legacy for when you next take flight or find out how long you have left to play in our Hogwarts Legacy length guide.

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.
