There are three methods that you can use to farm Shiny Puffskein in Hogwarts Legacy.

  • Manual Save
  • Change Time of Day
  • Breeding

Manual Save Method

To farm for a Shiny Puffskein, you can start by creating a manual save just before reaching the location where Puffskeins are found. Ensure that the manual save is created before you can see any Puffskein. Staying at least 100m away from the location before you create a manual save is best for this method. After saving, enter the Puffskein’s den location to check if a Shiny Puffskein has spawned. If it hasn’t, you can reload the manual save and continue trying until the Shiny Puffskein appears.


Unlike Shiny Graphorn which has only one den on the entire map, Puffskein has many. You can visit any of the dens visible on the map to farm for a Shiny Puffskein.

Change Time of Day

An alternative method for farming Shiny Puffskein is by changing the time of day. Head to the Puffskein den and check if a Shiny Puffskein has spawned. If not, you can exit the area and keep going until the Puffskein is no longer visible, adjust the time of day (from night to day or day to night), and return to the den. Repeat this process until you encounter a Shiny Puffskein. With persistence, you’ll eventually catch one!


Last but not least, the breeding method is where you can breed to two regular Puffskein in hopes of getting a Shiny variant. There is no guarantee and every method is purely based on luck. But breeding is indeed one of the known ways to get a Shiny Puffskein in Hogwarts Legacy.

That’s everything you need to know on how to find and catch the Shiny Puffskein in Hogwarts Legacy.
