Potions are carefully crafted items in Hogwarts Legacy that give players stat bonuses and require a specific combination of ingredients, like the Spider Fang, Created at the Potion Station in the Room of Requirement, the Maxima Potion takes a Spider Fang and Leech Juice to bolster the drinker’s spell damage for a limited time. Unlike other potion recipes found in the game, the Maxima Potion’s Spider Fang requires players to hunt down a specific enemy instead of simply harvesting it by exploring the wizarding world.
After crafting their first potions in Potions Class, players will then need to find Spider Fang as an ingredient required in order to complete the Professor’s Assignments and unlock new spells. Players may have already encountered spiders in the dungeon to find the Map Chamber, but there are also other areas that players can explore should they need more Spider Fang.
Where To Buy Spider Fang In Hogwarts Legacy
Spider Fang is available in limited supply and can be purchased for 50 Galleons each from Parry Pippin, of J. Pippins Potion Shop in Hogsmeade. You can find the shop just North of the West Hogsmeade Floo Flame.
Parry Pippin also sells Maxima Potions in short supply as well for a whopping 300 Galleons each. Players looking to use the Maxima Potion without bothering to craft it can do so, but the recipe for Maxima Potions only costs 500 Galleons. While not costing much more, it’s almost always a better plan to buy the recipe and craft it yourself to save a lot of gold in the long run, should you plan on using more potions in the future.
Spider Fang Location In Hogwarts Legacy
If you’re looking for Spider Fangs in the wild, they drop as loot from spiders. Plenty of spiders can be located in the Forbidden Forest and to the West of Hogsmeade. There’s a great spawn location just north of East North Hogwarts Region Floo Flame. Spiders usually come in multiples and sometimes along with their mothers, Thornback Matriarchs, which can also spawn more spiders. Once defeated, Spider Fangs will appear as an item on the ground that players can collect.
