Professor Sharp’s Assignment 1 – Hogwarts Legacy

In order to continue hunting Ranrok, you’ll have to continue building your spell vocabulary. Professor Sharp wants to help you learn Depulso, the Banishing Charm, but he needs you to do some tasks first.

  • Quest Type: Mandatory Class Assignment
  • Location: Anywhere
  • Requirements:
    • Completed Jackdaw’s Rest
  • Rewards:

Professor Sharp has assigned you to drink three potions. Specifically, you will have to drink a Maxima and Edurus Potion at the same time, as well as a Focus Potion. You can choose to brew these yourself or simply buy them from J. Pippins Potions in Hogsmeade.

If you opt to buy the potions, plan to budget around 1100 galleons to afford all three. The Maxima and Edurus Potion are 300 each, while the Focus Potion sets you back 500.

On the other hand, for those who spent too much money on clothes or hate supporting local businesses, here are the recipes for each potion:

  • Focus Potion Recipe: 3x Lacewing Fly, 1 Fluxweed Stem, 1 Dugbog Tongue
  • Edurus Potion Recipe: 1 Ashwinder Egg, 1 Mongrel Fur
  • Maxima Potion Recipe: 1 Leech Juice, 1 Spider Fang

Follow the same directions as for the Focus Potion, but drink a Maxima Potion followed by an Edurus Potion. Be sure to do this fast enough to have them both active at the same time.

After the tasks above, utilize the Floo Flame network to quickly get to Potions class. Wait for daytime if necessary, and watch the class cutscene.

When class ends, talk to Professor Sharp. You will have to do the spell unlocking minigame, resulting in you unlocking Depulso and ending the quest.
