As you progress through the most magical game right now, you’ll find yourself earning experience and levels towards the Hogwarts Legacy level cap. Levels are an indication of how far you’ve come from the start of the game, as well as a way to reach requirements for certain quests.

Reaching higher levels is necessary to grab some Hogwarts Legacy talent points, which will help you become the strongest witch or wizard you can be. While levels don’t matter when finding out how to unlock all Hogwarts Legacy spells, they will help you on your journey to unlocking all Hogwarts Legacy talents.

So, you’ll want to find out the best Hogwarts Legacy talents so you can focus on unlocking those. You will also gain more health as you level up.

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.
