Hogwarts Legacy: How To Unlock Flipendo Spell

Next time someone tells you to do a flip, do a FLIIIPENDOOO!

Flipendo is sort of a mid-game spell, meaning you have to play a bit of the game to get it eventually. You possibly cannot miss it too because it can coincide with your main quest as well. Like most spells, Flipendo is also taught to you by someone. Most of the time, it’s a Hogwarts Professor, and this time it will be Professor Garlick. She teaches the Herbology class, which is why the tasks she gives you are based on plants and seeds.

Key Takeaways
  • Flipendo is one of the Four Control Spells In Hogwarts Legacy.
  • You can knock back enemies either backward or upward and also solve puzzles using Flipendo.
  • To get Flipendo, you must complete Professor Garlick’s Assignment Number 2.
  • You can get the three combat plants from Dogweed And Deathcap.
  • If you want the Fluxweed, you’d have to travel to The Magic Neep.

Step By Step Guide On Getting Flipendo

Before you jump into the second assignment, of course, you have to complete the first assignment. It will be logged as “Professor Garlick’s Assignment 1” in your quest book or log. So you can just see from there the tasks you have to do in order to complete them. Acquire and use the Venomous Tenatacula and Mandrake on different opponents. 

Once you have done these tasks, you must head back to Professor Garlick and learn the spell Wingardium Leviosa. On a side note, you can watch our video guide and learn how to get the Wingardium Leviosa spell in Hogwarts Legacy.

Do keep in mind that its LeviOsa, not LeviosA. When you return to Professor Garlick, assignment 2 will be logged. You must also be at level 16 in Hogwarts Legacy, as the quest will then be locked. So make sure you complete the main stories and side stories side by side and gain XP. Doing these prerequisites is how you can move on to get the Flipendo in Hogwarts Legacy. 

Here are the steps to complete the assignment and learn the Flipendo spell:

  1. Access the Assignment: Check your quest log to find Professor Garlick’s Assignment 2. You will see two tasks that need to be completed to unlock Flipendo.

Type Of Spell 

The Spells Section

Since there are so many spells in the game, they have been categorized into different types. For example, the Arresto Momentum is a Control type spell. When we talk about the Flipendo, it is a Force Type spell and is actually one of the four force-type spells. The others are Accio, Depulso, and Descendo. You can use these spells to take advantage of your surroundings and use them against your enemies. 

The Force Type spells tend to make way for the Damage spells in battles. These spells have sort of a supporting role in battles as they don’t really damage that much but are merely for distractions or shield breaks. But that doesn’t mean they are not powerful, and they are extremely useful.

Flipendo will definitely be worth all the effort you went through to get into Hogwarts Legacy. It is how you use it that matters in the end, so make sure you have fun with it.
