Here are the steps you need to take in order to learn Confringo:

  • You will find Sebastian at his usual spot, near the Defense Against The Dark Arts Classroom.
  • Once you approach Sebastian, you will inform him that you have something to say but are concerned about prying eyes.
  • Sebastian has just the solution to this issue and leads you to an underground location. According to him, even the teachers do not know about this place, and you can discuss anything over there without the fear of anyone overhearing.
  • He leads you towards a secret passage, and you are prompted to enter the Undercroft. Upon entering the place, you ask Sebastian how he came across such a place. He tells you that his friend, Ominis Gaunt, discovered the place originally and named it the Undercroft. It was a place where they would retreat to in order to play Gobstones all the time. 
  • There are a lot of chests in the room, so be sure to collect all the treasure before you initiate your conversation with Sebastian. To make this step easier, you can use the Revelio spell if you have it equipped. As the name suggests, it will reveal all of the chest’s locations to you.
  • Once you are done looting the room, you can talk to Sebastian, and he will teach you the spell. 
  • He asks you to mimic the movement of his wand, and you will be prompted with a quick-time event. Follow along the pattern and time your button presses in order to learn the spell successfully.

And that does it! Now you are able to use the powerful spell Confringo in combat and blow away your enemies with ease.
