Hogwarts Legacy

How to Unlock the Beast Vivarium

Seren Morgan-Roberts

This page will give you a quick guide on how to unlock the Beast Vivarium for your Room of Requirement in Hogwarts Legacy.

The Vivarium is like a farm for your own beasts!

What is the Beast Vivarium?

The Beast Vivarium is a part of your Room of Requirement and will allow you to rescue and nurture your own beasts. Here, you’ll be able to care for them and in exchange, you’ll receive important materials used to upgrade your gear!

In addition to housing all manner of beasts, you can decorate the outside area with fences, benches and other decor. Later in the game, you’ll also be able to unlock machines that automate the care of your beasts and harvest the material for you!

Use the Vivarium to house rescued beasts!

When Do You Get the Beast Vivarium?

The Beast Vivarium is one of the major components of the Room of Requirement, but it isn’t immediately available when you first unlock the Room. Instead, you’ll need to complete the Beast Class, the Helm of Urtkot main quest and begin ‘The Elf, the Nab-Sack, and the Loom’ quest. During the latter quest, you’ll get to use the nab-sack to rescue a series of beasts. Then, when you return to your Room of Requirement, you’ll unlock the Vivarium greenhouse.

Deek will give you a nab-sack and you’ll also unlock the Vivarium after rescuing a few animals.

When you enter into the Vivarium, you’ll be able to release your newly caught beasts. From now on, you can use the nab-sack to rescue new beasts you encounter in the world!
