In the very first mission of Hogwarts Legacy, you’re introduced to Wiggenweld Potions. These green-liquid vials are the primary source of healing in the new open world RPG set in the Wizarding World. While they don’t heal the player for much health at first, you can later unlock Talents that allow the potion to heal for more HP. However, at the start of Hogwarts Legacy, you’re barely given enough Wiggenweld Potions to survive a single fight, let alone for the first part of the game. As such, some players have been wondering when exactly you unlock the ability to make the magical healing potion.
That’s the very question we’ll be answering in this guide, so keep reading below for more details.
Making Wiggenweld Potions in Hogwarts Legacy
Unfortunately for those who tend to take some damage during combat, you can’t actually brew your own Wiggenweld Potions until you’ve completed a solid number of main story and side quests. To be more specific, you won’t be able to make a Wiggenweld Potion until you’ve attended Potions class with Professor Sharp. This mission comes sometime after you’ve been to the Restricted Section of the Library, for reference.
Once you’ve attended Potions class, you can head into Professor Sharp’s classroom at any time and use the Potions station to brew your own concoctions. Wiggenweld Potion requires one Horklump Juice, one Dittany Leaf, and 15 seconds of brew time to make. You can grow Dittany Leaves in Herbology class, but the Horklump Juice will need to be procured outside of Hogwarts. Simply explore the surrounding hamlets and dungeons and you’re sure to stumble across some of the blue/purple mushrooms.
Until you gain access to the Potions station, you will need to rely on finding Wiggenweld Potions on dead bodies, through chests, or purchasing them at vendors. J. Pippen’s Potions shop in Hogsmeade sells up to five Wiggenweld Potions for 100 Gold a piece.
