How to complete the Finishing Touches achievement

The requirements for this achievement are to use Ancient Magic on every single enemy type in the game. Note that you simply need to hit them with it, not necessarily defeat them with it, which is merciful. Ancient Magic is used by filling up a meter by performing normal attacks and then pressing both shoulder buttons on your controller to unleash a powerful attack. You unlock this ability once you reach Hogsmeade early on in the main story.

There are a total of 38 enemies you need to use Ancient Magic on to get this achievement. Not every single enemy in the game counts toward this total, specifically enemies that only appear during story missions that can be missed. To help you keep track and locate the enemies you need to unleash your magic on, here’s a full list and where you can find them in the open world.
