All Treasure Vaults in the Forbidden Forest

By
Scott Peers

There are a total of 5 Treasure Vaults to be found in the "Forbidden Forest" iconForbidden Forest region of Hogwarts Legacy. Some of these are on the border between the forest and the "North Ford Bog" iconNorth Ford Bog. You’ll need to know a few spells to open them including "Accio" iconAccio, "Levioso" iconLevioso, "Alohomora" iconAlohomora, and a fire-based spell such as "Incendio" iconIncendio or "Confringo" iconConfringo. We’ll show you where to find each of the Treasure Vaults and how to solve their puzzles.

Treasure Vault Locations - The Forbidden Forest

Treasure Vault #1 - East of Jackdaw’s Tomb (Entrance from Spider Den)

The first Treasure vault that we’ll cover in the Forbidden Forest can be found directly east of Jackdaw’s Tomb, as shown in the screenshot below. You won’t be able to enter this vault from the exact location where it’s marked on the map, however. Instead, you need to make your way to the Spider Den just southwest of the marker on the map. Here you’ll find the entrance to the cave. Make your way to the end of the cave where you’ll find a number of braziers levitating around a central brazier. To reveal the treasure chest, you need to light all of the braziers present using a fire spell such as Incendio or Confringo. The chest will then fall from the ceiling and you can open it!

Treasure Vault #2 - West of the West Forbidden Forest Floo Flame

The second Treasure Vault can be found just west of the West Forbidden Forest Floo Flame, as shown in the screenshot below. The cave entrance is blocked by two doors which can be opened using the Accio spell. Once inside, head to the back of the cave where you’ll encounter another brazier puzzle. As with the first, you just need to light the unlit braziers using a fire-based spell such as Incendio or Confringo. The chest will then drop from the ceiling and you can loot it.

Treasure Vault #3 - Northeast of the West Forbidden Forest Floo Flame

This Treasure Vault requires a bit more to access than just lighting some braziers. It’s located beneath some ruins just northeast of the West Forbidden Forest Floo Flame. Upon arriving at the ruins you’ll notice some stairs which lead down to a doorway currently blocked with stone. To unlock it, you need to find a magical stone in the ruins above, and place it on the highlighted platform which glows in purple when you use the "Revelio" iconRevelio spell. The magical stone is a square object which also glows in purple, and it can be found in different parts of the ruins for each character, but you should be able to spot it easily enough since it’s highlighted in blue when you use Revelio.

To open the blocked doorway, you need to use Accio to bring the magical stone to the platform, place it down and then use the Levioso spell to make it levitate above the platform. At this point you should hear a doorway open, and if you go down the stairs you’ll find that you can now access the area where the treasure chest is located.

Treasure Vault #4 - Southeast of North Ford Bog Entrance

This Treasure Vault can be found southeast of the North Ford Bog Entrance, as shown in the screenshot below. You need to have the Alohomora spell Level I unlocked to open the door at the entrance to the cave. If you still don’t have this spell, be sure to check our page on What are Demiguise Statues in Hogwarts Legacy & How to Get Them, which will explain how to unlock the Alohomora spell. Other than that, this is a simple one once you’re inside the cave - you’ll find the chest at the end of it.

Treasure Vault #5 - East of the North Ford Bog Entrance

This Treasure Vault is just on the border between the Forbidden Forest and the North Ford Bog Entrance. There are no puzzles associated with this cave, so you can just walk right in and loot the chest at the end of it!
