Can you get a Patronus in Hogwarts Legacy?

Hogwarts Legacy Patronus explained

Hogwarts Legacy Patronus

Using Patronus charms are the only way to defend yourself from Dementors, one of the nastiest creatures in the wizarding world. They’ll suck out your happiest memories and leave you a shell of your former self. You’ll need to cast a very specific charm in order to drive them away. Here’s a guide that talks about the existence of Patronus in Hogwarts Legacy.

Will you be able to cast a Patronus in Hogwarts Legacy?

Hogwarts Legacy will not have Patronus charms. This was confirmed by the official WB Games Support Twitter account.

Expecto Patronum is considered to be a highly advanced spell that even qualified wizards and witches have a hard time casting. It has a very specific use against Dementors which may not be present in the game. There should be a lot of variation in the Hogwarts Legacy Patronus should they ever be added in an expansion or DLC of the game.

Introduced in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Patronus charms take many forms depending on the caster. To most, they can appear as simply vapor, however particularly advanced wizards can manifest Patronus charms as silver animal shapes. It is also dependent on one’s personality which stems from the strength one can draw from their happiest memories.

The absence of Patronus may mean that we will not face any Dementors in the game. This is understandable considering that they’re usually kept in Azkaban to prevent any prisoners from escaping.

It’s a nice way to add a touch of personality to your Hogwarts Legacy character but it won’t have any gameplay affects.

Harry Potter characters and their Patronus

The original cast of Harry Potter did have their special Patronus which manifested into silver animals to protect them from Dementors. Here are their Patronus:

  • Harry Potter: Stag
  • Ronald Wesley: Jack Russell Terrier
  • Hermione Granger: Otter
  • Luna Lovegood: Hare
  • Severus Snape: Doe
  • Dumbledore: Phoenix
  • James Potter: Stag
  • Lily Potter: Doe
  • Arthur Weasley: Weasel
  • Ginny Weasley: Horse
  • Minerva McGonagall: Cat
  • Nymphadora Tonks: Wolf
  • Remus Lupin: Wolf

It wasn’t until the third installment of Harry Potter that the titular character started to learn the Patronus charm. This was because he was being targeted by Dementors and needed some way of defending himself. As Patronus is considered to be a very advanced spell, it is unusual for someone who’s still in Hogwarts to know how to use it.
