Students in Hogwarts Legacy are quite the curious bunch, aren’t they? The lessons that are taught within the castle grounds can only do so much until adventure calls beyond the front doors. Whether it’s to Hogsmeade or Feldcroft, there’s always something spectacular to discover. Today, we’re focusing on the Hippogriff Marks the Spot treasure-hunting quest, which comes from one of Henrietta’s Maps. This begins as you explore Poidsear Castle on the Southern Coast of the map, where a rolled parchment can be obtained on a table. The parchment’s depiction displays the original location of Poidsear Castle, the spot to head toward, and a Hippogriff surrounded by circles of flames. Where is this unique area? Allow us to show you the way.
How to Solve Hippogriff Marks the Spot in Hogwarts Legacy
Before you can uncover this treasure, you’ll need to locate Henrietta’s Hideaway for this mystery. Navigate over to the Manor Cape region of the map. It’s at the far southern tip to the right amid some enemy territory. The entrance is below the enemy campsite, near the Merlin Trial.
Players will need to ignite four specific fire spots surrounding a stone Hippogriff after progressing through a locked gate with one magical box. Two are needed to open the door, however. Activating these boxes is relatively easy. Use Incendio to light the pot to the left of the doorway with a reaper statue. It will spin, thus providing the other box. Cast Wingardium Leviosa on the box, move it to the space next to the already existing box in front of the door, then place it down. Once more, cast Incendio to activate the box on the left; Glacius is required for the one on the right. Casting both spells will unlock the door.
Next, you will enter the room with the Hippogriff in question. Some enemies will be lingering within the area, so be sure to take care of them before tending to the aforementioned statue. As you can see, there are four pots that are on fire, while four others are cool and dormant. Essentially, extinguish the current flames with Glacius then cast Incendio onto the untouched pots.
Your player character will acknowledge aloud that it was a successful encounter. Behind the Hippogriff will be a chest that was previously hiding behind a wall. Looting the chest will reward you with the Treasure-Seeker’s Gloves and 180 XP.
