Hogwarts Legacy Professor Hecat’s Assignment 2 is the second and final Assignment you’ll have to complete for the Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher, provided you know how to avoid enemy attacks by dodge rolling ten times.
Professor Hecat’s Assignment 2 in Hogwarts Legacy is not as easy as Professor Hecat’s Assignment 1, mainly because you won’t get too many details on the objectives you’ll have to complete.
However, finishing the second Assignment for Professor Hecat is mandatory for unlocking all Hogwarts Legacy Spells because one of the rewards you’ll receive is the Expelliarmus Spell.
Alongside the said Spell, you’ll also get 150 XP, so in the following Hogwarts Legacy Professor Hecat’s Assignment 2 walkthrough, we’ll guide you through all objectives you must complete.
How To Start Professor Hecat’s Assignment 2 In Hogwarts Legacy
Professor Hecat’s Assignment 2 starts automatically after you complete the Tomes And Tribulations main quest and talk to Fig about your discovery in the Library Restricted Section.
After talking to Fig and completing Tomes And Tribulations quest, exit his office, and you’ll receive a letter from Professor Hecat:
Proffesor Fig and Weasley have asked that I teach you an additional defensive spell.
Please complete the assignments I have given you and then proceed to see me in my classroom.Professor Hecat
So, as you can see, you don’t have to visit Professor Heca for this Assignment, but if you open your Quests Tab and check the current quest, you’ll notice that it involves two objectives:
- Successfully avoid enemy attacks by dodge rolling (x10)
- Cast Incendio on enemies (x5)
The problem is that there are no other hints on where and how to complete these objectives. So let’s cover them one by one.
How To Successfully Avoid Enemy Attacks By Dodge Rolling
From the start, you should know that both objectives can be completed while fighting real enemies, not the training dummies or fellow students.
This means you can complete them anywhere you want as long as you are involved in combat.
For the sake of our Hogwarts Legacy Professor Hecat’s Assignment 2 guide, we’ll pick an accessible location, such as the area southeast of Upper Hogsfield. Make sure you reach the spot marked on the map below.
Upon reaching the location on our map, look around, and you should be able to find two Thornback Shooters or two spiders if you want.
Now, to perform a dodge roll in Hogwarts Legacy, you’ll have to press O/B the moment an enemy is about to strike.
You’ll know when the spiders are about to attack because you’ll see the Triange/Y prompt (pictured below) on your screen.
Instead of pressing Triange/Y, press O/B and move the Left Thumbstick left or right.
Also, stay mobile and do not attack the spiders until you perform ten dodge rolls. Or complete the first objective.
How To Cast Incendio On Enemies
Casting Incendio on enemies is far easier, as long as you remember to equip the Incendio Spell you have unlocked during Professor Hecat’s Assignment 1.
Press Right on your DPad and replace one of your current spells; then, once you finish the previous objective, simply attack the two spiders with your Incendio Spell (R2+the corresponding button of your assigned spell).
Since there are only two spiders at the location we have recommended, and because you need to cast Incendio 5 times after you deal with them, head east, moving towards East Hogsmeade Valley Floo Flame.
Eventually, you’ll reach a camp with Poachers who are the perfect targets for your Incendio Spell.
Attack them with your Incendio Spell, and the second objective is complete. Remember that you can attack an enemy more than once.
Now, it’s time to report back to Professor Hecat, so after you clear the camp above, open your Field Guide and select Hogwarts Map.
Next, select the Astronomy Wing, followed by the Defence Against the Dark Arts Classroom Floo Flame.
After you arrive, talk to Hecat in the Classroom, and she’ll teach you the Expelliarmus Spell.
To unlock the Expelliarmus Spell in Hogwarts Legacy, you once again must complete a mini-game that involves steering your wand (blue arrow below) with the Left Thumbstick while following the pattern on the right side. Remember to press the corresponding buttons on the pattern when your wand reaches them.
Expelliarmus is a very useful Spell as it allows you to disarm your opponents.
