To finish Poppy’s quest line and become lifelong best friends, you must thwart some pesky poachers. To do that you will need to know how to enter the ruins in Hogwarts Legacy.
This all happens during the A Bird In The Hand quest. It sees you, Poppy, and Dorran visit the ruins and be faced with a magical pillar puzzle to solve. If this is the first time you’re seeing one of these magic configurations, you’ll be wondering how this works.
Here’s a short and easy-to-follow guide on how to unlock and enter the Ruins in Hogwarts Legacy when completing the “A Bird In The Hand” quest. ✨🧪
How To Enter The Ruins Hogwarts Legacy
The pillars, symbols and moonstone door make opening the ruins in Hogwarts Legacy look like a doozy, but once you know what you have to do it’s surprisingly simple.
In this challenge, employ the Accio spell to shift each column around the ring encircling the central sculpture. By orchestrating this in the correct order, beams will illuminate the emblems, making them radiate. The symbols that light up on the ground should match those on the ruined entrance for the doors to unlock.
To enter the ruins in Hogwarts Legacy, follow these 5 simple steps:
Step 1: First, look at the symbols over by the doorway
Step 2: Then, take note of the symbols that are glowing
Step 3: Next, locate these glowing symbols around the pillar puzzle circle.
Step 4: Then, take note of where these symbols align on the opposite side of the circle.
Step 5: Use Accio to move the pillars so shadows point towards each glowing symbol.
Step 6: When done correctly, the adjacent symbols will shine and the ruins will open.
While there are 7 symbols on the doorway, you will only need to drag the pillar opposite just two of them. As soon as you see the shadow pointing towards the symbol, you know that you have dragged the pillar correctly and can move on to the next one.
The Final Word
With the ruins open, you can delve in to find the secrets inside whilst helping Dorran and Poppy with the poacher problem too. But if you’re feeling unprepared for the foes that may lie inside, you might like to learn Petrificus Totalus to stun spiders and dark wizards.
Once inside the ruins, head straight ahead to the small library area to collect the treasure. In addition, you will also find a treasure chest that is revealed when you light the brazier in front of the statue as well as a chest that can be Accio’d to bring towards you.
There’s plenty of treasure here so be sure to explore inside.
