How to Complete Like a Moth to a Flame in Hogwarts Legacy

Shane Williams

This is a guide for the “Like a Moth to a Flame” Side Quest in Hogwarts Legacy. It’ll navigate you through the necessary steps to finding the hidden location.

The painting seems to be missing something.

Lenora mentioned that the painting revealed a clue when she cast Lumos near it. Perhaps I should try that myself.

How To Start Like a Moth to a Flame in Hogwarts Legacy

Once you’ve played through the introduction you’ll have to fast travel to the Central Hall which is located in The Library Annex. Here you’ll now be given the freedom to roam around Hogwarts. However, before you attend your classes, speak with Lenora who can be found standing to the left of the staircase to begin your first side quest.

Where To Find The Location Depicted In The Painting

You’ll now notice something is missing from the painting, so make your way over to it, then cast Lumos which is done by pressing DualSense-R2 + DualSense-ButtonTriangle on Playstation and Xbox-TriggerLeft + Xbox-ButtonY on Xbox, then a location within the Central Hall will be revealed where the Moth is hiding. Whilst facing the painting you’ll want to look right, so you’re looking towards the large door, then go down the stairs and take a left.

(1 of 2) Head towards the large door to find the Moth hiding in the corner of the stairs

Head towards the large door to find the Moth hiding in the corner of the stairs (left), then return it to the painting. (right)

You’ll want to take a look in the corner and you’ll find the Moth sitting on the wall. Approach it and it’ll automatically gravitate towards your Wand, then make your back over to the empty painting and wait for it to return. Collect the Field Log before going upstairs and speaking with Lenora once more to bring this quest to a close.
