Site of the battle
Cassandra Mason is the final boss of the exclusive side mission for PS5 and PS4 owners of Hogwarts Legacy - Minding Your Own Business . Your first encounter with this character takes place in Hogsmeade.
The witch wants to sell her shop in Hogsmeade - you can become its owner. After tidying the shop and examining the mysterious chest, you'll be trapped in a haunted house. The journey through the haunted house is long, and during it, you'll face Fastidio's Monster (a boss battle). After defeating the boss, you'll be back at Hogsmeade - the only thing left to do is to confront Cassandra.
Boss fight description
The fight with Cassandra is divided into 3 phases. The first phase is simple, as the boss is vulnerable to all offensive spells, and you can parry her attacks using Protego. From time to time Cassandra will teleport to a different location.
How to break through Cassandra's white shield?
During 2nd phase, Cassandra will protect herself with a white shield. Your spells won't make a dent in the shield - the only way to deal damage is to reflect stones that are thrown your way. To do so, activate Protego once an orange circle appears above your hero's head.
Once the shield is down, get back to dealing damage to Cassandra.
The final phase is the longest but doesn't differ much from the previous stages. From time to time, Cassandra will reactivate her white shield. Remove the shield same as before and continue attacking. Watch out for teleportation and quick attacks from a new direction.
