The Edurus Potion gives Hogwarts Legacy players tough rocky skin and a defensive boost. To brew it, players need Ashwinder Eggs and Mongrel Fur.
The Shield Charm is the core of player defense in Hogwarts Legacy, but players looking for an even more robust defense can use the Edurus Potion to protect themselves. The Edurus Potion is a useful consumable that can be brewed at a Potions station in the Room of Requirement and gives the player rocky skin when consumed. This protective elixir grants players a tough defensive boost which can help protect them as they battle magical creatures and disciples of the Dark Arts. As it only requires two ingredients, players shouldn’t have trouble brewing this potion and stocking up.
The Edurus Potion requires one Ashwinder Egg and one Mongrel Fur, both of which can be bought in the village of Hogsmeade at J. Pippin’s Potions. This is the easiest way to obtain these potion ingredients and players should keep this in mind if they’d like to quickly brew some potions without spending time searching. However, grabbing these ingredients from the open world is far cheaper, allowing players to save up and spend their Galleons on other, far more useful items they might need.
How To Gather Ingredients For The Edurus Potion In Hogwarts Legacy
After purchasing the Edurus Potion recipe from J. Pippin’s Potions, players will need to find Ashwinder Eggs. This particular potion ingredient can be tough to find, and unlike certain plants such as flaxweed stem, it can’t be grown to provide players with a self-renewing source of ingredients.
Ashwinder Eggs can typically be found on mountain cliffsides, requiring players to search all over the open world. However, players just starting out with brewing potions can find eggs near Hogwarts Castle. Following the cliffside path up near the Quidditch pitch will lead players to a couple of glowing Ashwinder nests.
Thankfully, Mongrel Fur can be found more reliably. For this, players need to head into the Forbidden Forest and explore. As depicted in the books, films and other games, the Forest is a dangerous place. Players can come across evildoers such as poachers and Dark Wizards, as well as hostile creatures such as spiders. Feral dogs called Dark Mongrels will also attack players. By battling and defeating Dark Mongrels, players can collect Mongrel Fur to use in their Edurus Potions.
Once they’ve collected their resources, players should return to the safety of the Room of Requirement and use a Potions station to brew the Edurus Potion. Despite the danger, the Forbidden Forest has lots of useful potion ingredients players can collect. As such, it’s well worth exploring in Hogwarts Legacy, as long as players can keep themselves safe with their spells and potions.
