Summoner’s Court Match 1 is a side quest you can complete by beating Leander Prewett in a game of Summoner’s Court. We know you can’t pass out the chance to defeat Leander when he challenges you to a game; however, Summoner’s Court gets a little trickier than when you previously played it in the Charms Class.
So you’ll have to bring your A-game to beat Leander in this battle of skill and teach him a lesson. First, it’s worth mentioning that this side quest becomes available only after you complete the Potions Class story quest.
Then, you must find Leander Prewett, who is waiting around the Summoner’s Court board in the Bell Tower Wing of Hogwarts Castle (on the east side). If you open your map, you should see the quest icon in the said area, which you can select and press X to track.
Look for the Summoner’s Court: Match 1 side quest icon next to the Flying Class Lawn Foo Flame, which you can use to fast-travel if you have it unlocked. Or just use the tracker to make your way to Leander, the quest giver.
Now, speak with the NPC to start the mission.
How To Win Summoner’s Court Match 1 in Hogwarts Legacy
Upon talking to Leander, the game starts immediately, and in case you forgot how to play, you have to use the Accio spell to pull the blue spheres toward you. If you manage to get the spheres as close as possible to you (on the blue part of the board), you get the most points and will surely win Summoner’s Court Match 1. But doing so is risky because the spheres can fall off the board, and you will get no points, just like in the next image.
Thus, you might want to aim for the green part of the board; you’ll get fewer points, but it will be safer. Now, to use Accio, you have to hold R2 (PlayStation) and press the button to which you have assigned the spell.
To assign any spell, press the Right arrow on the DPad of your controller. Then, move your cursor on the spell you want, hold R2, and press the button you wish to assign. The available buttons are listed in the bottom right corner of your screen (only while holding R2). Good; now, if you want to aim for the blue part of the board, make sure you release R2 (while using Accio, of course) when the sphere reaches the orange part.
Be careful not to hit the obstacles scattered on the board because they will bounce the sphere back. If needed, you can move on the podium to get a better angle. Also, it’s good to know that if you fail, you can try again until you succeed.
