How To Open The House Chest
Each Hogwarts House has a special chest called a ‘House Chest‘ near the entrance to their dorm. When you first find this chest, there’s nothing you can do to open it. To unlock it, you need to collect 16 House Tokens. The tokens you find in Hogwarts will always be for your chosen house.
- How To Get House Tokens: To get House Tokens, you need to unlock House Cabinets. These are special wooden cabinets with a large circular locked shelf, with a keyhole in the center. You’ll find many of these while exploring the grounds of Hogwarts.
House Cabinets can only be opened after completing ‘The Daedalian Keys‘ side-quest found in the Transfiguration Courtyard, Astronomy Wing.
- How To Open House Cabinets: To unlock a House Cabinet, you’ll need to find a flying key somewhere in the environment nearby. Use Revelio [D-Pad: Left] to reveal anything notable in the area. Even the flying keys — they look a bit like dragonglies — will be highlighted.
- Once you find the key, lead the key back to the cabinet. Just approaching it will cause the key to fly toward the cabinet, so follow it!
- Return to the cabinet, then interact — when the flying key hovers over the keyhole, quickly press the [Slap] button.
That unlocks the cabinet. All cabinets include a House Token for your chosen house. You’ll need to find and unlock 16 cabinets to complete this trial. With 16 tokens, you can slot them into the chest and claim your House-specific reward.
For finding all 16, you’ll unlock a Relic House Uniform cosmetic. Access the cosmetic in the gear inventory.
