Dueling Feats are special types of combat challenges in Hogwarts Legacy that involve completing a specific task against a specific type of enemy. These feats pit players against various enemies from the Harry Potter books while performing combat feats such as throwing a boulder back at a troll.
Performing this particular Dueling Feat is easy, but takes some time. Let’s take a look at how to accomplish this feat.
How to use Protego to throw a rock back at trolls in Hogwarts Legacy
When players encounter trolls in the world of Hogwarts Legacy, a list of feats they can perform will appear on their screen. One is the particularly difficult “Hit a Troll with its own Boulder” feat. Trolls are large creatures and the Protego spell doesn’t work on most attacks. They are best avoided by dodging and rolling out of the way.
Trolls will sometimes try to throw a rock at the witch or wizard fighting them. This is the only attack that Protego can defend against, and with the right timing, players can reverse it to deal massive damage.
To do this, players must
- Block the rock with Protego (Triangle button on PlayStation, Y on Xbox and Q on PC), which will make it bounce off the shield.
- While the stone is still in the air and as soon as the shield is gone, activate Ancient Magic throw (R1 on PlayStation, RB on Xbox and Z on PC)
- If this is set correctly, players will successfully hit the troll with their own stone.
With patience and practice, players should be able to execute this move successfully. Removing trolls will be much easier with this method.
Another trick witches and wizards can do is swing the troll staff back at them when attacked. When a troll slams its club into the ground, players must dodge it and cast a spell called Flipendo. This will deal a lot of damage and, if done right the first time, will complete the Dueling Feat challenge.
Hogwarts Legacy was well received by the gaming community and the Harry Potter fanbase. It allows people to step into the shoes of a student studying at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. That means being at a school offering magic classes, broomstick riding, mysterious areas to explore, and magical creatures to find.
Players can spend hours exploring Hogwarts Castle and its surroundings or honing their magical abilities and fighting prowess. The game is available for PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S. It is expected to be released on other platforms at a later date. Readers can click here for more Hogwarts Legacy news, guides and information.
