How to Begin the Harlow’s Last Stand Quest

Now that you have the answer to the question, ‘Who is Harlow?’ You’re probably wondering how you can start the quest connected to him.

Right from the start, you must already doubt Harlow’s intention, but your lead comes from Natty, who sends you an owl to meet her near Manor’s cape. This means you need to talk to Natty to begin the quest. 

To get to the Manor Cape, you have to first fast-travel to Bainsburgh, and then you can use your broom to fly the remaining distance to Natty. Once you speak to Natty, the quest will begin.

How to Find Harlow’s Location

Once the quest begins, you have to go to Manor’s cape. You’ll meet several enemies you’ll need to defeat before seeing Harlow.

When you get to Manor’s cape, you’ll have to wait a while before beginning the fight. That’s why it’s best to prepare in advance by setting up your potions and spells. Once the dark wizards begin to appear, you’ll see that they’re not alone but accompanied by ash winders.

How to Defeat Harlow in Hogwarts Legacy

After defeating the ash winders and dark wizards, Harlow will pop out of nowhere, and you have to defeat him.

Although Harlow isn’t a difficult opponent, his battle style can be tricky. He uses the Protego spell to protect himself, and this can be difficult to break through. He also uses Expulso and Reducto to damage his enemies before they can dodge.

Therefore, learn to get out of the road when Harlow shouts Expulsion. Doing this will shock him, and you can attack him before he recovers. He would also use apparition in the middle of the fight, so try to damage him as much as you can. Harlow might also try to insult you; ignore him, as he’s only trying to break your confidence. 

Note that Harlow has a lot of minions that will interfere in the battle. Luckily, you’ll have Natty by your side to help defeat the minions. When Harlow’s health is very low, he’ll confront you in a duel, and all you have to do at this point is win over his magic wand. Once you get his wand, he’ll fall to the ground, realizing he has been defeated.
