Glacius is one of the best spells in Hogwarts Legacy, because it can freeze enemies in place and render them useless. You can also use it to freeze objects which can help you clear some puzzles. Here’s a guide on how to complete the assignment and unlock Glacius in Hogwarts Legacy.
To obtain Glacius, you need to complete Madam Kogawa’s first Assignment, which involves using your broom and travelling to specified locations. We'll break down everything you need to know, so you can get the spell easily.

Hogwarts Legacy Glacius quest pre-requisites
Before you can take on Madam Kogawa’s first assignment, you need to each at least Quest Level 5, and complete The Map Chamber in the main questline. Once you meet the requirements, simply head to the Belltower Wing in Hogwarts and you will meet Madam Kogawa, who will hand you her first assignment. You will need a broom to complete the assignment, so make sure you complete your first Flying Class to unlock your very own flying broom.
If you don't have a broom yet, keep progressing the main story until you run into Jackdaw’s Rest, which will lead up to your first Flying Class near the main lawn. You will eventually head to Spintwitches Sporting Needs as you progress the quest, and you will be able to obtain your first broom. The shop is located across from Ollivanders’ wand shop.
How to unlock Glacius in Hogwarts Legacy
Madam Kogawa’s Assignment involves popping balloons over Hogsmeade Station and ones above the Quidditch Pitch in Hogwarts. Follow the quest markers to head to Hogsmeade Station, which is located on the northeast side of Hogwarts. All you need to do after you reach the location is to pop the balloons while you are on your broom. You can activate your broom anywhere outside of Hogwarts from the item menu. You just need to go through all of the balloons while flying, and they will pop automatically.
After you take out all of the balloons at Hogsmeade Station, head back to the Quidditch Pitch, and you will notice more balloons. The fastest way to reach the Quidditch Pitch is by fast travelling to the Mooncalf Den fast travel spot. Just like the previous quest step, hop on to your broom and fly through all of the balloons once you are in the quest area.
Once you are done popping all of the balloons, head back to Madam Kogawa, who is located just outside Hogwarts castle. Talk to her to complete the Assignment, and she will teach you the Glacius spell.
