One of the secondary activities in Hogwarts Legacy Hogwarts Legacy is finding sources of ancient magic to increase your mastery of it. It is therefore very important to visit as many as possible during your adventure in order to control the enemies more easily.

Why prioritize the sources of ancient magic?

In the open world of Hogwarts Legacy, there are plenty of collectibles and other Merlin’s puzzles to complete, but one of your top priorities should be visiting sources of ancient magic. However, many players pass by without paying attention to them and not using them correctly.

Here are two reasons to go to these places:

  1. Every time you complete a resource puzzle, your old magic meters are completely filled. It is therefore important to do this before a Boss fight, a dungeon or a mission with many enemies. You arrive there with a certain advantage.
  2. The more resources you complete, the more you can do with the corresponding challenge in the wizard guideadd ancient magic meters! Initially, you only have to fill two meters and therefore use it. This number will increase by completing the Ancient Magic Sources challenge (after 2 sources, 6 sources, then 12 sources for a total of 5 bars).
