In Hogwarts Legacy you can find and unlock 13 different magical beasts. You can look after them, feed them or even breed them to have offspring. At this point we show you the localities of all animal creatures and also tell you how you can sell them if you don’t have money.
Unlock magical beasts
Before you can devote yourself to the magical creatures, you must first follow the main missions for a while. Because first after the 28th main mission “The elf, the knapsack and the loom” you get your snap sack from house elf Deek in the Room of Requirement, with which you can catch animals. Likewise, an enclosure will be unlocked in the Room of Requirement into which you can release the beasts.
Along with the snap sack, you will also receive a beast brush and beast food. With this you can brush and feed your collected creatures. You equip the instruments like magic spells and can use them as often as you like. Grooming is also worthwhile, as each species always gives you some of its fur after brushing and feeding. You use these materials to improve equipment and change properties.
As the game progresses, you even get the opportunity to breed animals. This feature is unlocked by completing Deek’s side missions. During his mission “The Colt of Death” new pens will be unlocked in the Room of Requirement and you can summon a breeding pens.
Breeding creatures is as simple as releasing a male and a female of a species into the same pen where there is a breeding pen. Then use the sign next to the enclosure and confirm that you want to breed offspring. Note that you can only breed offspring of the same species. Crosses between different species are not possible.
You have to afterwards Wait 30 minutes in real time, until the offspring appears in the enclosure. You can then care for and raise them like all other animals.
You can also earn money with beasts. You can sell beasts in your knapsack at the Beak & Brood shop in Hogsmeade. For each type, regardless of rarity, you can get it here 120 gold pieces.
