  • Since the spell was made specifically to reduce the number of injuries while playing Quidditch, it does require a bit of flying to unlock Arresto Momentum in Hogwart’s legacy.
  • However, since Quidditch was not included in the game, you will need to fly around and complete a flying test to prove your skills.
  • You can learn Arresto Momentum with the help of your flying instructor, Madam Kogawa.
  • Moreover, the assignment you will receive is quite fun and simple if you ask me. 

Madam Kogawa’s Assignment 2

Assignment 2 will be pretty much the same assignment as the first one you get from Madam Kogawa, but it’s set in a different location. Madam Kogawa has mustered up 10 balloons and set them up in two different locations. The two locations are going to be The Belltower Wing and the Flying Class Lawn. There are going to be 5 balloons scattered in both locations. 

Your task will be to maneuver your way around these locations on your broomstick. Fly up to the balloons and simply fly into them. Once you collide with the balloon, it will burst into confetti, so it won’t harm you. Once you have popped all balloons placed at both locations, you can head back to Madam Kogawa, and she will teach you Arresto Momentum in Hogwarts Legacy.

All spells are learned in the same so you will have to complete a small task to receive the spell. The task is pretty straightforward; you have you use your mouse to guide the cursor in the right direction.
