The way the difficulty progresses in Hogwarts Legacy is rather strange at times, as one of Rookwood’s henchmen turns out to be one of the very last optional bosses in the game. the name.

How do you unlock Harlow’s Last Stand?
You must have completed the quest A great wandwho asks to beat Victor Rookwood.
Then talk to Natsai Onai several times in the main hall of Hogwarts so that she tells you about her father. You will have to advance the time several times to unlock the extra dialogues. She will eventually send you an owl to tell you to get rid of Harlow.
If you have the forbidden Avada Kedavra spell, you can literally end the fight in an instant. All you have to do is pass the simplistic QTE of the wand duel.
If you want to make things a little more interesting, or think of him as a “nice” wizard, plan on a decent number of spells. Harlow is a fairly strong black mage, who will use three types of shields during battle: blue at the start, red if his life has started well, and finally yellow. So you need spells of all three colors.
At around 50% health, he will receive reinforcements, with blue and yellow shields. Ancient magic and the Transformation spell allow you to quickly get rid of them if necessary. Keep in mind that there are also plenty of items in the area to throw via R1, which is useful for both Harlow and his minions.
Harlow can be blocked very easily via control spells, but he will regularly teleport after taking damage. We recommend chaining up a few reels when he disappears, as he loves to appear behind your back and send you a spell that is impossible to block. This gives you time to refocus the camera.
Then you just need to methodically shorten his life. We do not recommend using the combination Protego + Stupefix as it often casts two spells in a row. You risk the second spell in the teeth even after correctly blocking.
Once Harlow’s life is exhausted and the QTE is successful, you’re entitled to a cutscene full of old clichés. Then talk to Onai in the infirmary as soon as she finishes talking to her mother. You receive the Vengeful Gazelle trophy.
