After making their way through the majority of Percival Rackham’s Trial, Hogwarts Legacy players will then be tasked with defeating what will be for many the game’s first major boss, the Pensieve Guardian. With that said, players will be able to complete two exclusive dueling challenges during the fight, the second of which tasks them with breaking his highly damaging orb as it is charging up. But how can you do that? Now, in order to help you complete all of the dueling challenges featured in the fight, here’s how to break the Pensieve Guardian’s Orb in Hogwarts Legacy.

Hogwarts Legacy: How to Break the Pensieve Guardian’s Orb

You can easily break the Pensieve Guardian’s Orb in Hogwarts Legacy by attacking it with a charm or spell of a matching color. More specifically, you will be able to break the yellow orb by casting Levioso. The purple orb, on the other hand, can be broken by casting Accio and Depulso.

With that said, given that the boss will shift the color of its orb once its first health bar is depleted, we highly recommend that you head to the battle with two battle-ready spell sets for maximum damage. Overall, each slot should feature a purple or yellow charm/spell respectively, as well as Expelliarmus, Diffindo, and Confringo/Incendio. You can check out how to unlock the new slots in our how to unlock new spell sets in Hogwarts Legacy guide.

Now that you know how to destroy the Pensieve Guardian’s Orb in Hogwarts Legacy, we also highly recommend that you check out our full guide into how to easily defeat the boss so that you can complete the trial without delay.

Hogwarts Legacy is currently available for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC. The PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game, on the other hand, are set to become available on April 4th, 2022.
