How to beat the Graphorn boss in Hogwarts Legacy
It's very manageable to beat the Graphorn boss. However, you'll be using a lot of dodges in order to outsmart it.
First off, you don't need to get rid of all the Graphorn's health. Just lessen around two-thirds of its HP bar. You'll figure out that dodging its attacks and staying far away from it is the best tactic to use. Mostly during its charge attacks, you'll be dodging, which is quite easy to do. However, the close-range spins of the Graphorn are tricky to time and don't give you many cues.
It's best for you to stay as far as possible from the Graphorn, and use range attacks against it. You can also build up your Ancient Magic meter, which helps in depleting that boss' health. Just focus more on making consistent ranged attacks and dodging with proper timing.
Once you've whittled its HP down enough, the second phase of the boss fight begins. This is fairly similar to before, with the main difference being faster attacks. Therefore, you'll need to be ready to time your dodges perfectly. Provided you follow the same plan of attack, you'll take down the Graphorn boss easily.
With that, you'll be well-prepared to beat the Graphorn boss. For more guides, you can check out our other pieces such as the full quest list and how to get into the Headmaster's Office in Hogwarts Legacy.
