Location of the boss - Ranrok
The fight with Ranrok will happen in The Last Depository main quest. As you fight your way through the hordes of enemies, you'll eventually reach the vault containing the power Ranrok craves - this is where the final battle will take place.
Boss fight description
At the beginning of the first phase, focus on dodging Ranrok's attacks (he can shoot an energy beam from his mouth and throw energy orbs), because the enemy will be invulnerable to attacks. When a colored orb appears on the screen, cast a spell of the same color to break it.
This will make Ranrok vulnerable, letting you drain the first part of his health bar. We recommend saving your Ancient Magic for the later phases of the fight.
In the second phase you'll need to break two colored orbs to make Ranrok vulnerable.
Meteorites shot by Ranrok can be dodged or intercepted (R1 on PS5) and thrown back at the enemy, dealing damage in the process.
When Ranrok covers himself with his wings, it means he's about to unleash a massive energy surge - step back to the edge of the arena. Deprive him of the second part of his health bar to advance to phase three.
The last phase of the battle with the final boss of Hogwarts Legacy will take place in a much larger arena than the previous phases. This time you must break three orbs to make Ranrok vulnerable. He won't make it easy for you, so try to keep your distance.
After dealing enough damage to him, Ranrok will land and become invulnerable again. This time he'll be much more aggressive, attacking constantly, making it harder for you to break the orbs.
Ranrok will now also use all previous attacks more often. He can also charge at you with nearly no telegraph, so you must be ready to dodge. If you get too close to Ranrok, he may go for a melee strike and hit you with his wing.
Once you fully drain his health bar, he'll change his form a bit. You must now hit three colored orbs in a row (purple, yellow and red) to finish the fight. Ranrok, of course, will not make this easy for you, so you must stay vigilant and keep evading.
