Defense Against The Dark Arts Class Quest Walkthroughcasting Leviosa on the training dummy

The quest starts with the students goofing off with a duel at the beginning of the quest before Professor Hecat walks in on them.

During the beginning of the quest, you will be learning the Levioso spell, which had been early displayed during The Path To Hogwarts quest.

1) Perform a Basic Cast on the Training Dummy

Professor Hecat will rearrange the room and start an exercise where you will face off against a training dummy to test out your new spell.

This objective requires that you test Basic Cast on the Training Dummy, which is blocked by a barrier surrounding it.

2) Cast Levioso on the Training Dummy Followed by Basic Cast

Now that the barrier around the dummy has proven it can’t be hit, you will now need to cast Levioso before attacking it.

At this point, Levioso will appear as one of your spells and you will need to cast it on the Training Dummy during the exercise.

The Training Dummy will be lifted and afterward, it will be vulnerable now to your Basic Cast to test out if you understood.

Using Leviosa against Sebastian Sallow

3) Duel Against Sebastian

It’s time to use Levioso in actual combat and Professor Hecat calls you along with another student named Sebastian Sallow to a duel.

You will only be able to use Basic Cast, Protega, and Levioso during the duel with Sebastian Sallow until one of you loses.

Sebastian Sallow will attack you with basic attacks, which requires you to wait for the right moment to catch him off guard.

The technique here will be to cast Levioso on Sebastian Sallow and continue blasting him with Basic Casts until he loses by falling off the edge.

A cutscene will begin after the duel with Sebastian where you will speak with Professor Hecate about your abilities.

4) Speak With Sebastian

Once you have finished speaking to Professor Hecate, head over to Sebastian and speak with him about the match.

After the conversation with Sebastian Sallow, the quest will be complete.

Defense Against The Dark Arts Class Rewards

This can be used later when enemies are hard to attack and will allow you to make them vulnerable to your attacks for a short time.
