Defense Against the Dark Arts ensures that Hogwarts students can battle their enemies.

In the Defense Against the Dark Arts class, Dinah Hecat teaches you to protect yourself from curses. While attending this class in Hogwarts Legacy, you’ll be able to learn how to cast offensive spells.

This class has been a major part of the series, with a new teacher being designated to this class in each year of Harry’s time at Hogwarts, including, Quirrell, Lupin, Umbridge, and Snape.

Players that chose to purchase the Hogwarts Legacy Deluxe Edition or the Collector’s Edition will be granted access to the Dark Arts Battle Arena AI enemies as targets to practice spells on.


Herbology teaches you about the plant life that can be found around Hogwarts, including a few that can be made into potions. In the novels, Neville Longbottom had a gift for this subject and would go on to become a Herbology professor.

Now, players will have the opportunity to develop the same aptitude for it. Plus, it’s always useful to know which plants are deadly and worth watching out for. This class is taught by Mirabel Garlick.
