Each spell has a core identity and belongs to a category. Some spells have a chance to advance or even change through the talent system as you spend talent points on them. There are over 20 slottable spells to choose from and many more practical ones that help with quests and exploration.

In Hogwarts Legacy, the Imperio Spell Temporary forces enemies to fight as if they were your companion. While under your control, they take reduced damage from other enemies to prolong their allegiance to you. Also, curses the victim – and cursed enemies take extra damage.

Just like all combat spells in Hogwarts Legacy, it has a cooldown and thus can be part of the combo. The combos are powerful and sometimes complex combinations of spells and basic attacks to increase the overall damage.

Additionally, the Imperio spell is helpful in combat, as the game’s protagonist will likely encounter many fights and opportunities to use it. Hogwarts Legacy doesn’t have any morality system, but NPC characters will react verbally and audibly to you casting unforgivable curses.
