Potions don’t only have to be for utility!
Whilst I can't wait for Hogwarts Legacy to release so I can make my very own witch and run around casting spells, it'd be a lie to say that one of the mechanics I'm most excited for is potions! And while there are some phenomenal options to make missions and quests fun, I don't want to overlook the ones we could craft just for some silly times.
Here are seven potions I hope appear in Hogwarts Legacy so I can cause some mischief on the school grounds!
Disclaimer: whilst some of these might get you really excited about the game, we do caution you against placing high expectations! Let's not forget that — at the end of the day — this is a videogame that needs a budget and comes with limitations. This article is just for fun! Let's be nice to game developers.
Caxambu Style Borborygmus Potion
This one is a bit of a silly one, but I can't help but giggle at the idea of walking around Hogwarts with my stomach growling! It really just exists to make you make noises from your gut, but I think it'd be a phenomenal way to start off a feast with some laughs!
One of my favourite things to do in games is to get my characters drunk to watch them wobble around. It's even funnier if I then go into a fight! This is why I'd love to see the Confusing Concoction in Hogwarts Legacy — I'd make a few of them and run at some enemies to see how difficult a battle could be.
As a huge fan of Halloween, I really hope we get the Pompion Potion, which temporarily turns the drinker's head into a pumpkin! This would be incredibly adorable, and I'd probably spend hours brewing tons of them just to walk around with a pumpkin head.
The Polyjuice Potion works both as a great quest option and for fun, too! The idea of drinking it and turning into a character from the game to walk around the school pretending to be them sounds like a ton of fun. The idea of it takes me back to driving like a normal person in Grand Theft Auto just for the fun of it!
The Swelling Solution — for those who may not know — causes items to grow bigger upon contact! I thought this might be a pretty cool addition, as I love changing the size of objects in games. I think it’d be a pretty silly yet fun potion to have!
Angel's Trumpet Draught
"Curiosity killed the cat" is a well-known proverb, and I plan to test it out if I can get my hands on an Angel's Trumpet draught! We don't know what it does, and I'd be willing to die to find out.
Last but not least, Helium is a ton of fun to use in real life, so I'd love to replicate that in-game through the Volubilis Potion. Taking it and hearing my character's voice change whilst I go into battle is probably a sure-fire way to get some giggles out of me!
Hogwarts Legacy Digital Deluxe Edition
And that's it! That's all the fun potions I hope to see in Hogwarts Legacy. If you can't wait to jump into the game and cause some mischief via potion-making, consider getting Hogwarts Legacy's Deluxe edition pre-order, which has 72-hour early access to the game!
