Hogwarts Legacy has a vast range of enemies for the player to defeat valiantly as they venture through the Wizarding World. After budding wizards have taken to the skies on their fast brooms or mounts, they may notice the occasional Troll walking about below and many will decide to go and fight them. Although Trolls are brutally tough, some have been missing out on an easy Troll weakness in Hogwarts Legacy.

Best Troll Weakness in Hogwarts Legacy

On TikTok, frenzone.ttv and others noticed that the spell Flipendo can be used to great effect when battling the Trolls. Whenever a Troll slams their hammer down on the ground with both hands, quickly use the Flipendo spell and you will hit the troll in the face for heavy damage as their hammer catapults into them.

Anytime you run into trolls in the game, be sure to have this spell at the ready as it will ensure you can get the most damage off on the Troll with the least amount of work. Rather than rolling around like a gymnast, you can now take a stand instead. As an extra note, using Diffindo on the Troll when it kneels down after the Flipendo combo can be a beautiful follow-up attack.
