How to Unlock the Finishing Touches Achievement or Trophy in Hogwarts Legacy
Putting your Ancient Magic skills to the test.
Those who want to become the ultimate witch or wizard can try to tackle Hogwarts Legacy’s massive achievement/trophy collection, featuring various quests and in-battle triumphs. While some can be earned quickly, others are more difficult and require further gameplay time. With this guide, we’ll help you check one of these tasks off your list by explaining how to unlock the Finishing Touches achievement/trophy in Hogwarts Legacy.
Hogwarts Legacy Finishing Touches Guide
You can earn the Finishing Touches achievement by using Ancient Magic on every enemy in the game. However, even if the Enemies Collection list consists of 69 adversary types, this trophy/achievement only mandates you to utilize it on 34 foes, primarily those who can be found around the map. This collection also doesn’t include main story opponents, so you don’t need to worry about missing these characters, like Death’s Shadow and the Pensieve Sentry.
Those unfamiliar with Ancient Magic must fill up its meter in the bottom right corner until they see a button prompt above the adversary. Players can also improve this skill by investigating more Ancient Magic Hotspots marked with magic icons on the map.
To help with this goal in Hogwarts Legacy, you can find enemies in these areas:

For the Poacher Animagus, you must use Ancient Magic twice on its human and Mongrel forms; therefore, it’s best to wait until this enemy transforms. Keep in mind that you just need to use this ability, and the trophy doesn’t require you to eliminate them with it, as you may have seen with the Dueling Feats challenges.
Players may be able to track their current progress with the achievement on their system. For example, PlayStation 5 users can see it by pressing ‘View All Details’ on the trophy. Or, you can view what enemies you’ve encountered in the Collections section of the game’s menu and find the ones you haven’t battled yet.
