Hogwarts Legacy is a very different kind of open-world adventure. There is a vast area to explore, filled with enemy encampments, monster dens and poacher ambushes — but for most of your adventure, you’ll be using spells to solve weird little puzzles that are littered literally everywhere. The school for the magically gifted is absolutely stuffed with little secret objects you can interact with. There are statues you can light on fire, weird mirrors, doors with strange symbols, secret doors, suspicious orbs and locked cabinets. There are so many weird objects on and around the school grounds, you might wonder how to actually interact with all of them.
That’s why we’re here. Below, you’ll find a complete list of every object type you can interact with and how to ‘solve’ them. Sometimes you’ll need a specific spell to make these mini-objectives work. Sometimes you’ll need to complete certain classes before you can even think of interacting. Whatever the reason, we’ll describe the means to complete these puzzles and what you’ll get for doing them. Not all puzzle elements are created equal, and you just might want to skip some of these interactive objects.
