How to dodge roll Hogwarts Legacy

As previously stated, if you want to get out of the way of incoming spells or a club swipe from a nasty troll, you’re going to need to physically dodge to do so. Dodging in Hogwarts Legacy, as you would expect, works like most other games, and in all honestly, looks a little like The Witcher.

To perform a Hogwarts Legacy dodge, what you’re going to need to do is simply press the Circle button if you’re on PlayStation or the B button if you’re on Xbox. This will make your in-game wizard do a dodge roll and hopefully get out of the way from the incoming attack.

Something to keep in mind, however, is that you don’t need to dodge every attack. The only ones that actually require you to do so are when you see the red marker above your head. Any other color and you’ll either be able to counter it or block, hopefully allowing you to get the battle over with nice and quickly.
