Here’s what you need to know about how to unlock and use your talents in Hogwarts Legacy.

Every player’s talents will unlock after they’ve completed Jackdaw’s Rest. It’s a quest where your main character will look for the missing pages discovered in the middle of the ancient book you and Professor Fig discovered. Jackdaw’s Rest has you working alongside his ghost and discovering the old place he found while he was alive.

When you reach the end of this area, the talents screen will unlock. You receive a talent point for every level you’ve earned beyond level five. You can use it in the talent tree to provide an array of helpful passives for your character while playing Hogwarts Legacy. Each time you level up, these talents will be available for you to select.
