Are you wondering how you would attend classes in Hogwarts Legacy?
I know there are a lot of questions in your mind about this topic, which is why we are here. This guide will help you understand exactly how the classes would work in the game.
Hogwarts Legacy- How do Classes Work? Can We Skip Classes?
Hogwarts Legacy lets dive deep into the magical world of Witchcraft and Wizardry. The game features a beautifully created magical world where you are free to explore as you wish.
We are not only limited to the Hogwarts School but also the area around it. The developers have said that you can reach as far as you can see in this game. This makes it even more interesting to explore as there are tons of secrets you can discover.
Apart from exploration, there are so many things to do in Hogwarts Legacy. You have the main missions, side missions, breeding magical creatures, dueling against wizards, and last but not least attending classes for your academic progression.
What are the types of Classes we might have to attend in Hogwarts Legacy?
There might be a number of subjects that you learn at Hogwarts but only a few of them are confirmed as of now. So basically the classes you would be attending are:
- Defense Against The Dark Arts: This is obviously everyone’s favorite class. You get to study how you can protect yourself from anything or anyone who can harm you or rather any potential threat in the wizarding world. It is perhaps the most important class in the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry as you quite a few essential spells through these classes.
- Potions: If you are familiar with the Harry Potter franchise you would know that Potions is not the more interesting class to attend. Especially when your teacher is as strict as Prof. Snape. However, the game has no link to the Harry Potter world so potions might actually be interesting. Potions help you in several ways. In the game, it could help you boost your defense, refill your health or boost your attacks.
- Charms: Charms are basically a class of spells that alter an object without changing its essential nature. It is a pretty interesting class as you would get to learn a lot of spells that you would definitely need in the game.
- Herbology: I know a lot of you find Herbology boring. It is the study of plants in the magical world. However, it could be very crucial to attend these classes as herbology could help you in combat.
As of now, these are the confirmed Classes we would be attending at Hogwarts.
How do Classes work in Hogwarts Legacy?
Well, here is what we have come for. A lot of you might be thinking that Hogwarts Legacy is a life sim where you would have to attend classes every day. I know it would have been amazing if that had been the case but it is not.
Sadly, Hogwarts Legacy would not be a life sim but rather everything you do would be structured around the main story and side quests.
This applied to the classes as well. You would have to attend classes to learn spells, craft potions, and other cool stuff but these would be structured around the missions you have in the game. Although there would be a day and night cycle in the game and classes would happen only when you choose to play that particular mission.
Can we skip classes?
So will you get to skip classes? Will you have detention when you do it? Sadly, no you will not be able to do that.
As the devs said, “Everything is very narrative-based“. The game will have chapters with a number of missions that you need to complete before progressing and classes would fit within that narrative structure.
So, to sum it all up, you would be stuck in a part of the story or a time period in the game. You will only be able to free roam or do other side quests during that point in time until you complete the main story and the classes associated with the main story.
There could be optional classes that could help you learn extra spells and abilities. It would help you level up, meet new people and unlock more side quests as well.
If you ask me, I would say I am a little disappointed with the way life is set at Hogwarts. I wanted a life sim style of gameplay. But, then it is more of a personal opinion and I am sure the way the game is structured would make more sense since you have a lot of things to do in the game.
I hope the guide was helpful. Please let us know if you like this format of life at Hogwarts. Feel free to share your thoughts. Also, keep following FPS Index for more guides on Hogwarts Legacy.
