fan favorite class – Defense against the Dark Arts
DADA in the lore
The Defense Against the Dark Arts (abbreviated as DADA) is a subject learned in Hogwarts and Ilvermorny schools. In DADA students can learn how to defend themselves against the Dark Arts, such as dark creatures, curses, hexes, and jinxes. The professor’s post for this class was once jinxed by Voldemort. During that time no professor could hold the post for more than a year. Luckily, that jinx has been lifted.
The classes contain theory, usually assigned as homework, while practical lessons are held in the classes. In DADA students can learn counter-jinxes, defensive spells, Boggart-Banishing spells, and Patronus charm.
In this class, you will fight against multiple creatures. You need to catch them with a special charm: “Immobulus”.
This Class is available on Tuesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays.
DADA in the game
DADA in the game is a battle with some special objectives that you need to perform during the fight. For example, in the Cornish Pixies session, you need to catch 6 of them with a special Charm. So, it’s not only a fight, but you also have something to do while the battle is going on.
The Pixies are small, bright blue magical beasts with, according to me, very scary black eyes. They usually shriek at humans, but they can communicate among themselves. They are mischievous in nature, for example, they like to lift humans by their ears and place them on top of trees or buildings. They have immense strength, for such small creatures.
This Class task may be a reference to the scene from the movie Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, where after professor Gilderoy Lockhart released Cornish Pixies in the DADA class, Hermione stopped the Pixies from moving by casting Immobulus.
In this scenario, you need to catch 6 Cornish Pixies that are released from the cage by an unknown hooded professor, with the “Immobilus” Charm. You don’t need to have this Charm before the Class; you get it at the beginning of the Class. You can use Immobulus on Cornish Pixie only if Pixie has less than 20% Health.
Cornish Pixies will appear randomly across the battlefield, and there will be 42 of them in total. You only need to catch 6 of them with Immobulus, you can defeat the rest to 0% Health.
The number of Pixies caught is the sum of all Pixies caught by all teammates.
You can attend this lesson with 2 other players if you invite them before the beginning of the Class. You will have a slot next to your character with the “+” sign. If you are not connected with other players, you will fight this battle with 2 NPCs: Robyn and Daniel.
