How To Start Venomous Revenge

After you’ve completed the Main Story Quest “The Helm of Urtkot” you’ll be able to speak with Ackley Barnes who can be found standing behind "The Three Broomsticks" iconThe Three Broomsticks in "Hogsmeade" iconHogsmeade. Here you’ll be requested to find a Venomous Tentacula, so you’ll want to follow the quest marker to the nearby Lalley’s Cellar.

Where To Find Lawley’s Venomous Tentacula

Once you’re inside the cellar you’ll need to avoid being detected by Alfred, as it’ll set you back to the beginning. Use the "Disillusionment" iconDisillusionment Spell to make you invisible, then shoot the torch to the left of Alfred to distract him and hug the wall whilst making your way through the door in the back right corner. However, before you can open it you’ll need to pick the lock with "Alohomora" iconAlohomora which was unlocked via The Caretaker’s Lunar Lament“ Main Quest.

Continue following the path until you reach a large room containing a "Thornback Scurriour" iconThornback Scurriour. Avoid it and head up the stairs to the left to find the Venomous Tentacula. If you’re get caught by the spiders, then use fire base spells against them, such as "Confringo" iconConfringo. Interact with it to pop it into your inventory, then exit the Cellar and return to Ackley to bring the quest to a close
