How to make & brew potions in Hogwarts Legacy

While players can purchase potions from different stores, it’s pretty taxing on your hard-earned Galleons. But don’t get us wrong, buying potions does come in handy if you’re in dire need of it and you’re yet to brew your own. However, after reaching the Potions Class quest, you can hold on to your precious Galleons, as this is where brewing truly begins.

Once you’re done with the Potions Class quest, which serves as a tutorial to brewing and crafting potions, you can start brewing potions in the potion classroom. However, you’re limited to a few Potion Stations only. Luckily though, Once you unlock the Room of Requirement, the fun part begins, where you can set up your own brewery to quickly concoct all sorts of fizzy potions.

Brewing potions in the Room of Requirement

In the Room Of Requirements, you’ll need a Potion Station and Ingredients to brew potions. By default, you start with four Small Potion Stations in the Room of Requirement and two potion recipes. Here’s how brewing works:

  1. Conjure the Potion Station in the Room of Requirement using the Conjuring Spell.
  2. Interact with the Potion Station, which reveals a cauldron and a menu.
  3. In the menu, you’ll see a list of every potion that you’ve unlocked using recipes.
  4. From that list, simply pick the potion that you’d like to craft, or rather, brew.

However, bear in mind that every potion requires certain ingredients, and brewing takes some time. Other than that, there are no prompted buttons to push, and all you have to do is wait for it to cook.

Brewing potions using Hopping Pots

Another way to brew potions other than Potion Stations in Hogwarts Legacy is via Hopping Pots. You can only utilize them in the Room of Requirement, which you can conjure like the Potion Stations. And instead of using ingredients, Hopping Pots give free potions. The catch, however, is that these pots give out potions randomly after 12 minutes. And you really can’t tell which potion you’ll receive.

It is also worth noting that the timer resets if you leave the Room of Requirements. So, if you’ve got nothing better to do in the game, then just stand there while these pots do the cooking for you.

All potions and their effects in Hogwarts Legacy

There’s a total of 7 potions that players can take advantage of in Hogwarts Legacy. And you can hold up to 12 potions of the same type. You receive the recipe for two of them free of cost after completing the Potion Class quest and can buy almost all of the remaining potion’s recipes from J. Pippin’s Potions in Hogsmeade.

However, there’s only one potion, the Felix Felicis potion, that will only be accessible to you if you’ve pre-ordered Hogwarts Legacy. Nevertheless, if you’re interested in the 7 potions offered by the game, here’s a table listing each of them, along with the ingredients required to brew them, and their uses:

Are potions worth making in Hogwarts Legacy?

It’s definitely worth learning how to make & brew your own potions in Hogwarts Legacy. It’s time to stop putting off learning this certain skill, especially if you’re wasting away your precious Galleons down at J. Pippin’s Potions. As you can see above, there are 7 potions in total with wildly differing effects to enjoy.

Like we’ve mentioned before, one of the main reasons for learning how to make your own potions is the cost. You’re going to run out of gold quickly if you simply buy new potions every time you’re low on stock. It’s much better to invest in the more cost-effective solution of learning the recipe and doing it yourself.
