Hippogriffs are amongst the most beloved Magical Beasts in the world of Harry Potter so it is not surprising to see them be a major part of Hogwarts Legacy. You can also use these creatures as mounts, allowing you to soar over the Hogwarts to your heart’s desire. However, before you can get your hands on a Hippogriff, you will need to find one which is not very easy. This guide will show you everything there is to know about finding Hippogriffs in Hogwarts Legacy.
Hogwarts Legacy Hippogriffs
After completing your first Beast Class, you will learn about Hippogriffs and getting the Nab-Sack, essential for capturing Magical Creatures. The first thing that you will need to complete 2 pre-requisites:
- Be at least Level 17.
- Learn the Wingardium Leviosa from Professor Garlick Assignment 1.
Also, the season must change to fall, which happens after completing the Rackham’s Test.
The key to unlocking Hippogriffs lies in completing The High Keep quest. Your journey begins with Natsai Onai, who will ask you to meet her near Falbarton Castle, northeast of Hogsmeade. However, once you get there, you will notice that the main gate is locked. In order to enter, climb the walls on the right of the castle, using spells such as Depulso, Wingardium Leviosa to navigate obstacles. Once you are inside, use spells such as Disillusionment, Petrificus Totalus, etc. to maintain stealth.
You will find Highwing, the Hippogriff from your Beast Class, chained alongside another Hippogriff. You simply need to free them to escape the castle. You just need to fly with Highwing to a safe area near Hogwarts. This should allow you to use Hippogriffs as mounts.
At any time in the game, access your Hippogriff mount via the Tool Wheel. You should also be able to change the appearance of your Hippogriff from the Gear screen. These include the Thestral Mount and Onyx Hippogriff.
You can tame Hippogriffs in areas like Forbidden Forest, Feldcroft, etc. using spells like Leviosa or Accio. In the Vivarium found in the Room of Requirement, you can groom, feed, and display multiple Hippogriffs, and earn materials for gear upgrades.
