In total, there are 12 Herbariums scattered throughout the game. Once you find all of them, you will unlock the Herbalist and Ornithologist achievement. In this guide, we will discuss everything you need to know about finding all of Hugo’s Herbarium locations in A Plague Tale Requiem.
All Hugo’s Herbarium Locations
All of Hugo’s Herbariums are divided into the following items:
- 5x Flowers
- 7x Feathers
Flower #1: Newcomers (Chapter 2)
You will find the first flower, “Arrowhead,” in chapter 2. Then, during the subchapter “Ignifer,” you will be tasked with reaching the South Tower. Amicia and Lucas will hide from rats, reach an underneath section through an elevator with a brazier on it, and walk a few seconds to the garden, where Lucis sits on a flower called the first flower of Hugo’s Herbarium.
Flower #2: A Burden of Blood (Chapter 3)
You will find the second flower, “Chamomile,” in chapter 3. During the subchapter “At the edge of the city,” you will be tasked with reaching the herbalist’s forest. You will reach the herbalist’s hut while fighting against the rat. However, before entering the hut, you must first take the left path and end it. You will see giant trees with flower pots along this path. To get these flower pots, hit the metal chip above them. Now pick up your second flower pot and continue on your journey.
Flower #3: Protector’s Duty (Chapter 4)
You will find the third flower, “Gentian,” in chapter 4. During the subchapter “Night Work,” you will be tasked with reaching the order’s boat. First, you will reach the herbalist’s hut while fighting against the rat. However, before entering the hut, you must first take the left path and end it. You will see giant trees with flower pots along this path. To get these flower pots, hit the metal chip above them. Now pick up your second flower pot and continue on your journey.
Flower #4: In Our Wake (Chapter 5)
You will find the fourth flower, “Anemone,” in chapter 5. During the subchapter “Bridge under construction,” you will be tasked with finding a way to reach the boat. Once you remove the chain and free the river, follow the riverbank to reach the bridge. First, you will need to find and remove the source of the obstruction blocking the small drawbridge to raise it. Once done, you can use the crank to raise the bridge and cross. Now find the Anemone flower, which will be at the cliff’s edge.
Flower #5: King Hugo (Chapter 16)
You will find the fifth and final flower, “Carnation,” in chapter 16. During the subchapter “Marseille,” you will be tasked with finding Hugo. Follow the path until Lucas stops to look at some flowers; he will interact with them. You need to collect these flowers.
Feather #1: Leaving all Behind (Chapter 6)
You will find the first feather, “Jay,” in chapter 6. During the subchapter “Towards the sea,” you will be tasked with finding a way toward the coast. Chapter 6 begins in a giant, open field. Once you take a few steps, Amicia will challenge Hugo to race to the big tree in the middle of the field. Hugo will win and get all the feathers you need; ask them for your desired feather Jay.
Feather #2: Felons (Chapter 7)
The second feather, “Black-headed gull,” is found in chapter 7. During the subchapter “Arrival at the beach,” you will be tasked with crossing the beach. In Chapter 7, after exploring the beach for a while, you’ll come across a small house on your left. Entering the house, you’ll see a knife lying on the bed. To find the feather, walk to the window on your left.
Feather #3: A Sea of Promises (Chapter 8)
The third feather, “Black kite,” is found in chapter 8. During the subchapter “Arrival at the beach,” you will be tasked with looking around for information about the island. After you arrive on the island, find Arnaud and go to the square market. Once you’re in the square, walk to the left side, where there is a garden. The woman will be thanking her workers for their efforts. You must cross past them; a small path leads to a tree on your left. Grounded at its base with feathers all around it, interact with this object to get your desired one.
Feather #4: Tales and Revelations (Chapter 9)
The fourth feather, “Barn owl,” is found in chapter 9. During the subchapter “Entering the sanctuary,” you will be tasked with finding a way around the checkpoint. Sanctuary has two rules: don’t get spotted, and don’t kill anyone. If you want to visit, following these rules is a must. You will second stealth inside the tower, where your goal is to reach the top without using the exit halfway through it. After reaching the top left at the pathway’s end, you will find a feather on the ground.
Feather #5: Bloodline (Chapter 10)
The fifth feather, “Raven,” is found in chapter 10. During the subchapter “The old temple,” you will be tasked with reaching the fort. To enter the old temple, you need to kill the first enemy. Assign Sophia the task of interacting with the wheel in the meantime. To go inside the door, use a row crossbow to crush it. Follow the paved path and leave when you see the grassy path. Next, you need to jump over the cliff, and you will find a feather at its end.
Feather #6: The Cradle of Centuries (Chapter 11)
The sixth feather, “European goldfinch,” is found in chapter 11. During the subchapter “Byzantine technology,” you will be tasked with exploring the underground area. You’ll need to blow up the first door using an explosive barrel to progress in the game. The next room has a similar setup: there will be an explosive barrel behind the wall on your right side. Use Ignifer slingshot again to set off the explosion. However, don’t destroy the left gate in this room. After clearing that path, you will find a feather nearby.
Feather #7: Nothing Left (Chapter 13)
You will find the seventh and final feather, “Greylag goose,” in chapter 13. During the subchapter “Ruined village,” you will be tasked with reaching the port. Chapter 13 will introduce you to taking down your second enemy. Afterward, you will see a cart that needs pushing to continue. The best approach is to stand the cart up so it can take you back from where you came. Once you reach the top of the stairs and find the feather, look around for a hidden chest in the same room. Collecting all flowers and feathers completes this task and allows access to the Herbalist trophy.
