For the first requirement, the players need to reach Level 3 in the game. And for the second requirement, the players will have to learn a fire-making charm called Incendio.

However, the major reason why many players get stuck here is due to the fact that the game will not tell you directly what the fire-making charm is. So it is important to understand that the fire-making spell is called incendio, and it is a very popular spell similar to Disarm 

Therefore, if the players want to learn how to make a fire in Hogwarts Legacy, they will have to learn the Incendio spell first. Below you will see how you can unlock the spell in the game. 

Requirements For The Spell 

First, you will need to make your way to the Defence Against Dark Arts Classroom and interact with your professor. The professor will give you an assignment that has two tasks that you need to complete in order to complete the quest. 

In these two tasks, you will have to complete two rounds of crossed wands and complete a round of spell combination practice to unlock the spell. 

Crossed Wands 

This is a mini-game in Hogwarts Legacy. It can be accessed during this quest called Find The Secret In The Restricted Section. The players will need to complete the mini-game in order to win and complete the quest.

In the mini-game, the players will have to duel against a bunch of students. In order to participate, the players need to interact with Lucan Brattleby. He can be found in the clock tower, and by interacting with him, you will be able to access the mini-game. In the clock tower, you will duel against some students.

You will have your companion to help you in the battle while you defeat the opposing students. In the mini-game, all you have to look out for is using the right spells at the right time and dodging any incoming spells when necessary. Furthermore, it is also important to counter and break Shields; otherwise, you will miss your chance to learn the incendio spell. 

Spell Combination Practice 

The next requirement to unlock the incendio spell is to complete a round of the spell combination practice. For the practice to begin, you need to talk and interact with Lucan. In spell combination training, you will be against a training dummy in the game.

You will need to perform the correct combinations by pressing the buttons at the right time and making sure that the dummy does not touch the ground. This is also part of the game where the players will master air juggling and spell cycling for them to use in future battles of the game. 

After you are done with both requirements, you need to head back toward the Defense Against The Dark Arts Classroom and talk to the professor.

She will display a pattern for the spell that you can learn. All you need to do is trace the pattern, which is a triangle, and you will be able to perform the incendio spell in the game. By using the spell, you will be able to burn your enemies and also break any Shields that are colored red.
