Hogwarts Legacy

How to Find the Butterfly Treasure - Follow the Butterflies

Nathan Garvin

This simple side quest begins after you finish the main quest Jackdaw’s Rest, and serves to introduce you to a rather odd means of finding treasure in the "Forbidden Forest" iconForbidden Forest. This page will walk you through the side quest Follow the "Butterflies" iconButterflies in Hogwarts Legacy. This quest also earns you a trophy - “Followed the Butterflies”.

Talk to Clementine Willardsey and she’ll ask you to chase down some mysterious butterflies in the Forbidden Forest.

How to Start Follow the Butterflies in Hogwarts Legacy

To start this quest properly, seek out Clementine Willardsey in "The Three Broomsticks" iconThe Three Broomsticks, which is located right in the middle of "Hogsmeade" iconHogsmeade. Talk to her and she’ll tell you about some mysterious - yet enticing - butterflies that flit about in the Forbidden Forest. Agree to satiate her curiosity, then travel to the Forbidden Forest Floo Fire.

(1 of 3) Shortly into the Forbidden Forest, you’ll find the colorful bugs you seek.

How to Track the Butterflies in the Forbidden Forest

When you arrive, cross the bridge to the north to reach the outskirts of the Forbidden Forest and a short ways in you’ll find a swarm of colorful insects flitting about. You’re now tasked with following the bugs as they meander about the forest - they won’t take you very far in, but their indirect route (often over terrain that’s difficult for you to tread) makes this take a bit of effort. Only a bit, however, you don’t need to stay all that close to the butterflies. Just keep an eye on them and make a reasonable effort to keep up with them and you’ll be fine. The butterflies even have a marker on the minimap, if for some reason you have any doubt about where, exactly, these bugs are going.

When they’ve led you around long enough they’ll eventually settle down and a chest will spawn. Loot it and you’ll obtain the Medium Tables Conjuration.

Return to Clementine and you can downplay your discovery, or tell her the truth.

Lie or Tell the Truth to Clementine Willardsey in Hogwarts Legacy

Return to Clementine Willardsey in The Three Broomsticks and tell her what you discovered. You can downplay how lucrative following the butterflies was, but Clementine isn’t out to challenge you for any treasure you can find by such an odd hobby - she’s content just knowing that such wonders exist, should she ever muster up the courage to seek them out. Whether you lie or tell the truth, she’ll give you the Flower Box conjuration.

Completing this quest will also earn you the following trophy:
