Learning new spells
Once you get to Hogwarts, you'll be receiving a lot of main quests, side quests and assignments. Completing them will let your character learn various types of spells. After selecting a given assignment or quest, you can check in the description what will be the final reward for completing them.
Before you can use a spell, however, you must first learn it, and this is done through a mini-game. A pattern will appear on the screen. To use a spell, you must first follow the pattern with the cursor or analog, then press the appropriate button when the blue indicator appears on it.
Thanks to this, you will significantly speed up the learning process, and your icon will gain speed. This is very important, because shortly after starting the mini-game, a red bar will start chasing you. If it catches up with you, you will have to try again.
Once you've learned how to use a spell and want to test it, you first need to open the spell menu using the appropriate button (right on d-pad). Then select the spell you want to assign and choose a slot.
Remember that you can have up to four spells assigned to one spell slot at the same time.
