February 9, 2023

Hogwarts Legacy Crossed Wands Round 3 is the last of three combat side quests, in which you’ll have to defeat four other opponents to be crowned the tournament champion.

Crossed Wands Round 3 side quest is far more challenging than the previous two side quests, and it will require some strategy and good timing to finish it successfully.

You will have to make use of the whole arsenal of spells you’ve learned so far to take them out.

So, let’s see how you can easily defeat your opponents and complete the Crossed Wands Round 3 in Hogwarts Legacy.

How To Start Crossed Wands Round 3 In Hogwarts Legacy

To unlock the Crossed Wands Round 3, you’ll have to complete the previous two challenges: Crossed Wands Round 1 and Crossed Wands Round 2.

Then, make sure to progress the story until you finish the Tomes and Tribulations Main Quest.

Now, return to Lucan Brattleby at The South Wing part of Hogwarts Castle, near the Clock Tower Courtyard Floo Flame, and talk to him.

Select the second prompt message to start the Crossed Wands Round 3 Side Quest. Make sure to pick a partner to help you a little bit in the battle.

Also, the first prompt message is for the Spell Combination Practice 2 Side Quest.

How To Defeat Your Opponents In Crossed Wands Round 3 Side Quest

Like the previous two rounds, you’ll have to defeat all four opponents without dying to complete the side quest.

Each opponent has a shield of a different color that protects him from Basic Cast attacks. To remove the shield, you’ll have to use a spell that has the same icon color as the shield.

But if you are doing the side quest early, you’ll have a limited amount of spells to choose from.

To remove the Violet Shield, you’ll have to use the spell Accio you’ve learned during Charms Class Main Quest.

To break the Yellow Shield, use the spell Levioso you’ve learned during Defence Against The Dark Arts Class Main Quest.

And finally, use the spell Incendio you’ve learned during Professor Hecat’s Assignment 1 to remove the Red Shield.

Another way to break any type of shield and deal a high amount of damage is to use the Ancient Magic Throw by pressing (R1)/(RB) near objects like barrels around the arena.

The most efficient strategy to complete the Crossed Wands Round 3 Side Quest is to focus on one enemy at a time until you take him out of the battle.

While you try to take out your opponents early on, keep an eye out for the golden aura above your head. Press (△)/(Y) when you see it to cast Protego and deflect the incoming projectiles or spells.

Also, use the Magic Ancient Throw we’ve mentioned earlier to deal high amounts of damage, not just to break the shields.

Another important thing is to use Levioso or Accio when you throw objects at the enemy to deal double damage.
