Small test: Does this feel – Revelio! – just a little bit – Revelio! – as if you were -Revelio! – Hogwarts Legacy – Revelio! – play? Well then, welcome to the club!
Revelio was the revealing spell cast about 100 billion times in the first month after the release of the open world game. That doesn’t surprise us at all here in the editorial office. Because it feels like we’re responsible for half of it.

Why is the spell so popular? The revelation spell in Hogwarts Legacy is cast about 37,000 times per second (!). No wonder, after all, players want to discover all the secrets of the magic school – and Revelio helps with that.
Manual pages, secret doors, interactive objects, chests – all highlighted as if by Geralt’s witchcraft. That was the birth of Revelio spamming.
Shortly after the release, the first memes appeared and showed how meticulously the community searches the game for hidden Easter Eggs and collectibles. And we, too, have to take a good look at our own noses.
In addition to self-deprecating comments like »So that’s per player, right?« the community also reacts with criticism. Reddit user Quality-Controller

How do you feel about that? Do you also belong to the Revelio spammers? If so, how many spells do you own? And what do you think of this revealing magic anyway? Do you find it helpful to discover hidden secrets? Or rather annoying because all interactive objects are marked directly? Write it to us in the comments!
