There are a few ways to earn XP to get you to level 40. The biggest XP earners are completing main story line quests as well as side quests. XP can also be gained when you collect field guide pages, complete dueling feats or complete battle arena challenges. Battle area challenges will award XP for each wave cleared, with the later waves awarding more than the first. 

Along with hitting the level cap at 40, you will stop earning Talent Points. You start earning Talent Points at level 5, meaning you can only earn a maximum of 35 Talent Points. You cannot fully unlock each Talent category in the game. Check out our full list of Talents ahead of time to plan out which you want to take in game. 

Whether you plan on completing all side quests before the main story or perfecting your combat in a battle arena, you will stop earning XP once you hit level 40. You will have unlocked the true ending of the game and other quests by that time. Looking for more Hogwarts Legacy answers? Check out full list of Hogwarts Legacy guides.
