How to Start the Quest

Learn Reparo before starting Welcome to Hogsmeade

Once you’ve finished Charms and Defence Against the Dark Arts, Professor Weasley will send you to Hogsmeade to get your school supplies. The mission can be initiated if you’ve reached Level 2 and know the Utility spell Reparo, which you’ll get through playing the game. After learning Reparo, open the quest menu and track the Welcome to Hogsmeade quest. The quest marker will take you to Sabastian or Natsai (depending on who you choose earlier while speaking with Professor Weasley).

How to Get to Hogsmeade

When you meet up with Sabastian or Natai, a small conversation will trigger. Choose whatever dialogue options you like to complete the conversion. Once that’s done, you and Sabastian will be able to exit Hogwarts Castle. Follow Sabastian or Natai to get to Hogsmeade. They run a bit slow so this section gets a little annoying. Another conversation will happen with Sabastian or Natai at Hogsmeade before you are free to explore the village.

Objective #1: Visit Ollivanders Shop

How to Beat Armor Troll

After The Magic Keep the quest marker will guide you to Sabastian (Or Natai) and when you meet up with them, the armor troll fight will begin. The troll is easy to beat and can be taken down with basic spell casts. All you need to worry about is dodging rolling his attacks. Use environmental objects to your advantage by throwing them on the troll to stun him. Other than that, keep using the basic spell cast attack and dodge roll.

Use Reparo to fix up the village and speak with the shopkeeper before you leave for the next objective.

Objective #4: Visit The Three Broomsticks

The final objective is to visit the Three Broomsticks but on your way there you will overhear a conversation between Victor Rookwood and Ranrok. Both parties are apparently behind the armor troll attack in Hogsmeade. They were planning to use it as destruction to kidnap your character.

The Three Broomsticks section is entirely a cutscene at the end of which you can fast-travel back to Hogwarts Castle. At the end of the Welcome to Hogsmeade quest you will get 260 XP, Ancient Magic Throw, Ancient Magic rewards in Hogwarts Legacy. And that concludes our Welcome to Hogsmede walkthrough!
