How to Learn Enemy Counters in Hogwarts Legacy

You will learn enemy counters early in the game while progressing for the Path to Hogwarts quest with Professor Fig. One of the first counters you will unlock and learn is the Protego spell. You can use this spell for counters against incoming enemy attacks in Hogwarts Legacy. The best time to use this spell during combat would be when you see a golden insignia above your head. As you do so, the shieling orb around you will protect and block the attacks from your enemies.

But when you hold the keybind or button to cast Protego, you can also cast the Stupefy spell. This spell can stun your targeted enemies while counter-attacking them. These stunned enemies take on additional damage and can be a pretty great counter for crowd control. Timing is the key to using or casting both spells. While casting Protego is relatively easier, casting Stupefy can take a tad bit of time to fully learn.

Nevertheless, once your enemy is staggered or stunned, use the Basic casts on them to eliminate them. We suggest taking the enemies down before they regain and are ready for combat, again. In addition to that, you can use other spell combos too. The goal here is to cause as much damage as possible before your enemies are up again. As you unlock more spells, you can use Accio or Levioso to bring your enemies closer.
