Why is Hogwarts allowing these to be grown?
It’s quite surprising that a school would allow poisonous plants to be grown, and that is indeed the case for the Venomous Tentacula in Hogwarts Legacy. When this item is summoned, it will fling poisonous fumes toward your foes.
Unfortunately, getting a Venomous Tentacula is quite a hassle, especially if you want to grow one yourself in either the Herbology classroom or the Room of Requirement. Here’s how to get a Venomous Tentacula in Hogwarts Legacy.
Where to find a Venomous Tentacula in Hogwarts Legacy
The Venomous Tentacula in Hogwarts Legacy is not just a useful plant to have in battle; it is also required to learn Wingardium Leviosa from Professor Garlick because it is an assignment to acquire and use a Venomous Tentacula. You’ll also need to use a Mandrake.
You can find and buy a Venomous Tentacula itself or its seeds in Hogsmeade. They are located towards the northern hilly outskirts of the town in a store called Dogweed & Deathcap. Once you arrive, you’ll realize it is quite expensive to buy Venomous Tentacula Seeds as they’re 1,050 Galleons. Press the shoulder button on your controller to head into the selling portion of the menu and get rid of some of the weaker clothes and accessories in your possession. You can also finish quests that will gain you Galleons as a reward. If you’re really tight on money, then you can buy two Venomous Tentacula for 600 Galleons.
But wait, there’s more to do…
If you return to the Room of Requirement straight away, you may realize that you only have small pots, and the Venomous Tentacula can’t fit inside them. You’ll need a bigger pot. For this, go back into the Hogsmeade town center and find Tomes and Scrolls on the southern side of the area. It’s nearby the Spintwitches Sporting Needs and Ollivanders stores. The shopkeeper inside Tomes and Scrolls will sell you a larger pot spellcraft for 1000 Galleons.
Now, you can finally get back to the Room of Requirement and start the Venomous Tentacula growing process. Equip the conjuring spell and then find the Herbology section on the menu. Press down on the D-Pad until you find “Large Potting Tables.” From there, you can summon the potting table you require and begin to grow the Venomous Tentacula. You will have to wait for 15 minutes before you can pluck it from the ground.
Venomous Tentacula Usage & Tactics
The Venomous Tentacula is excellent at keeping your opponents at bay. Whenever you’re surrounded, this plant sends out pulses of poison toward your foes, damaging them. They also get knocked back a slight way, and the Venomous Tentacula’s a good option for crowd control. Unfortunately, the poison attacks from the Venomous Tentacula don’t cause damage over time.
It’s not like a poison-type attack in the Pokemon series.
