Hogwarts Legacy

History Of Magic Class

Jessica Dillon

One of the most infamously boring classes at Hogwarts becomes available close to the end of the game. This is none other than the History of Magic class, which is taught by ghostly Professor Binns. While this isn’t a long or hard quest, it’s required for getting all the journal pages in Hogwarts Castle. It can also be a bit confusing, as the quest isn’t great at explaining what exactly you need to do in order to complete it. The guide below goes over how to complete the History of Magic Class and get those hidden journal pages in Hogwarts Legacy.

How to Start History of Magic Class in Hogwarts Legacy

Once you have completed Niamh Fitzgerald’s Trial, the History of Magic Class will open up. This class can be easy to bypass, though, as it doesn’t teach you any cool new spells to blast away enemies with. Instead, it dives further into the lore of Hogwarts and unlocks several "Revelio" iconRevelio pages that you otherwise won’t be able to collect. Keep in mind you do have to do the full quest to unlock all of these pages.

How to Complete History of Magic Class in Hogwarts Legacy

The first part of this lesson has you sitting at your desk, rapidly pressing a button so that you don’t fall asleep during Professors Binns’s lecture. After you overcome your want for a nap, you will follow the professor into a gallery displaying several historical exhibits that have to do with Hogwarts. Professor Binns will ask you several questions during this quest, but your answers don’t really make a difference.

To complete the quest, you must first find Grimbald Weft, who is now just a skull in a display case on the right side of the two large doors, just down from the Floo Flame. Use Revelio to make a page appear and then return to Professor Binn to begin the next part of the class.

Professor Binn will now task you with finding Sir Affpuddle, who was once a knight. He is located up the stairs on the opposite side of the room from Grimbald Weft’s skull. He is the last knight on the left side of the room. He is notable as he is holding no weapon or shield. Use Revelio to grab his journal page once you find him.

Once this is complete, once again, return to Professor Binn to complete the History of Magic Class.
