How To Get Thunderbrew Potion In Hogwarts Legacy

Help yourself during difficult encounters by using the Thunderbrew potion and encovering the battlefield in a thunderstrom.

In addition to the number of spells you can cast and wield, Hogwarts Legacy also features a wide variety of potions that can be used to either aid you in combat or help you further explore the far corners of Hogwarts. Among them is a potion called Thunderbrew, which allows you to create a thunderstorm amidst battles and deals passive damage to your enemies in Hogwarts Legacy. Thunderbrew potion can either be bought directly or can be brewed by gathering the required ingredients.

Additionally, if you are going for an alchemist build, where potions and plants are your main sources of fighting off different enemies and traversing the world, Thunderbrew Potion is a must-have in that case.

Buying Thunderbrew potion is by far the easiest method of acquiring this potion. Buying is recommended if you are planning to use it for a specific quest or for just a single enemy encounter. However, if you are planning to use it repeatedly throughout the course of the game, buying may not be a suitable option.

Thunderbrew potions can be bought from J. Pippin’s potions located in Hogsmeade. This potion is sold for a price of 1000 Galleons.

How To Brew Thunderbrew Potion

  • Location of Thunderbrew Recipe: J. Pippin’s Potions in Hogsmeade
  • Price of Recipe: 1200 Galleons 
  • Ingredients required for brewing Thunderbrew Potion: Leech juice, Shrivelfig Fruit, and Stench of the Dead

In comparison to buying, the process of brewing a potion is long and complicated to some extent. But before we get into the ingredients and their locations, make sure you have progressed the main story up until the point where you can access the Room of Requirement. It is basically your own personal room, where you can brew your potions, grow your plants, further decorate, and whatnot.

Now that you have the recipe it’s time to gather the ingredients required to brew the Thunderbrew potion. There are three items required to brew Thunderbrew potion, 1x each:

  • Leech Juice
  • Shrivelfig Fruit
  • Stench of the Dead

Leech Juice

  • Location of Leech Juice for buying: J.Pippins Potions in Hogsmeade, Hamlet Shops in Keenbridge, and Lower Hogsfield.
  • Location of Leech Juice on World Map: Riverbank near Lower Hogsfield
  • Price of Leech Juice: 150 Galleons

The easiest way of acquiring Leech Juice is by buying it from various vendors. J. Pippin’s Potions in Hogsmeade and Hamlet Shops in Lower Hogsfield and Keenbridge are some notable ones. It is available for a price of 150 Galleons.

Obviously, buying is not a very good option if you want to stock up on Thunderbrew potion, in which case, you should opt for the second option, which is finding Leech Juice in the wilderness of Hogwarts Legacy. You can find plenty of Leech Juice near the river bank at Lower Hogsfield.

This is easily the nearest location to Hogwarts, where you can find this item. However, this is not the only place where you can find this item. Leech Juice is available in wide abundance across the river banks of Hogwarts Legacy.

Shrivelfig Fruit

  • Location of Shrivelfig Fruit for buying: Magic Neep in Hogsmeade
  • Location of Shrivelfig Seeds: Magic Neep in Hogsmeade
  • Price of Shrivelfig Fruit: 150 Galleons
  • Price of Shrivelfig Seeds: 450 Galleons
  • Location of Potting Table with a Medium Pot Spellcraft: Tomes and Scrolls in Hogsmeade
  • Price of Potting Table with a Medium Pot Spellcraft: 750 Galleons
  • Growing Time: 12 minutes

The second item, Shrivelfig Fruit, isn’t easily found in the world, and it is better to acquire it either by growing or buying. The seeds for Shrivelfig Fruit can be bought from the Magic Neep in Hogsmeade. It is available for a price of 450 Galleons.

The second thing you will need to grow Shrivelfig Fruit is a medium-sized potting table. If you don’t have access to it yet, you can buy it from Tomes and Scrolls located in Hogsmeade for a price of 750 Galleons. Afterward, simply use the conjuring spell and place the potting table in your room.

Stench Of The Dead

  • Location of Stench of the Dead for buying: J. Pippin’s Potions in Hogsmeade
  • Location of Stench of the Dead on World Map:  Inferi Lair near Keenbridge
  • Price of Stench of the Dead: 100 Galleons

The third and final item you need for brewing Thunderbrew potion is Stench of the Dead. Stench of the Dead can be found by defeating the Inferius, located in the Inferi lair, east of Keenbridge. However, if you find the encounter too tough, you can always opt for the option of directly buying it from a store.

Brewing The Potion

After you have all of the necessary items required for brewing the Thunderbrew potion, simply go to the Potions Station in your room and select the Thunderbrew potion. The brewing time for it is 1 min 30 seconds. You can spend this time further decorating your room or practicing your newly learned spells.

After 1 min 30 seconds, simply go to the Potions Station and pick up your potion.

Brewing VS Buying –  Which One Is Better?

Buying the potion or ingredients for it is better if you want a quick, short-term solution to the problem. If you require a specific potion for a class, a story encounter, or any enemy encounter, buying will always be the faster and easy option. At the same time, buying potions or ingredients every time you need one can be costly and is not recommended.

In this case, you should opt for the option of brewing. Gathering the ingredients by searching for them in the wilderness and manually brewing the potion is more time-consuming but way less costly.

So in a nutshell, if you want to try out the potion for the first time, want to get an assignment done, or just want to get past a frustrating encounter, buy the potion. Otherwise, if you want to stock up on them, use them repeatedly through the game, and save galleons in the process, brewing is the way to go.

Conclusion

Prices of a lot of various ingredients and items have been discussed in our guide, and if your pocket isn’t full of Galleons you won’t be able to make any progress. For that reason, we highly recommend our Gold Farming guide for Hogwarts Legacy.
