Duels | Basics HP and the HB Prince Guide

Last update: Wednesday, May 11, 2016

Learning how to duel is one of the most basic things you have to do. There will be lots of fight, in the clubs and during the story as well. At the beginning you have only some basic spells at your disposal, but as the story progresses you will learn more of them. Below I'll give you some tips on how to fight properly.

- Above all, you have to constantly move. There's nothing worse than standing in one place and getting hit by the enemy attacks. That's why you should strafe during the battle and if you see that the enemy is readying a spell, wait for the proper moment and dodge or cast Protego.

- Sometimes it's good to make use of obstacles like screens or bookshelves. You won't find them around during every fight, but you can hide behind them to catch a breath and ready another spell while fighting a strong enemy. Just remember that you can destroy these items and so can your enemy.

- If you want to quickly eliminate an enemy, try to immobilise him. Expelliarmus and Levicorpus spells are the way to go. By using them, you will gain time during which you should attack your foe with the strongest spells you've got.

- At the same time, try not to fall in such a trap yourself. If you will be knocked down with the Expelliarmus spell, you are unable to do anything until Harry stands up. However if you get hit by the Levicorpus spell, begin to move your mouse left and right and you will regain control quicker.

You will use this style mostly during the beginning of the game, as you won't have too much spells and when you want to play with your opponent. It's a combination of defensive style with a high amount of dodges [1], after which you can launch your own attacks [2]. While moving, it's good to use the Stupefy, which will give the enemy a hard time.

Defensive style

In this style, you focus mainly on defence, without attacks. It's definitely the least stunning and effective style, but you can gain one of the badges thanks to it and practise your defensive skills. In order to defend effectively, you need to have the Protego spell, thanks to which you can reflect enemy attacks [1]. It's actually the only way to deal damage to your foes. During the fight you must also remember to frequently dodge and use various covers [2].

Offensive style

The offensive style is all about defeating your enemy as quick as possible - Duels - Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince - Game Guide and Walkthrough

The offensive style is all about defeating your enemy as quick as possible. You just have to throw everything you've got at your foe. A good example of fighting with this technique is using the Levicorpus together with the Stupefy spell. First, you immobilise your enemy using the first one [1], charge up Stupefy and cast it once close to the enemy to finish him [2].
