How to complete Professor Garlick’s Assignment 2 in Hogwarts Legacy

All three combat plants in Hogwarts Legacy

There are three combat plants you can find in Hogwarts Legacy: the Mandrake, Chinese Chomping Cabbages, and Venomous Tentacula. You can acquire all three of them from various vendors in Hogwarts Legacy, and some of them you can find out in the wild.

We recommend making your way to Hogsmeade and going to the north side of the map. You’ll find a vendor there called Dogweed and Deathcap. Speak with the vendor, and they can offer to sell you seeds for the Mandrake, Chinese Chomping Cabages, and Venomous Tentacula. You can grow these in the Room of Requirement and then take them out into the field to use them in combat.

Using all three combat plants simultaneously

Those working on Professor Garlick’s Assignment 2 will need to use all three of these plants simultaneously during combat. You’ll want to make sure you have at least one of each in your inventory and then make your way to the Forbidden Forest. There are typically several Dark Wizards and spiders you can fight against in this area and use these plants against them.

You will need to act fast. We recommend using the Venomous Tentacula and the Chinese Chomping Cabbages first. Once those two are out on the field, use the Mandrake against your opponents. The Chinese Chomping Cabbage and the Venomous Tentacula stick around a bit longer, and the Mandrake is instantly used.
