The Map with Floating Candles Walkthrough for Hogwarts Legacy

To complete this quest, players need to travel to the Forbidden Forest. You should have the Floo Fire fast travel point. The reason for this is that the gate archway in the poster is marked with a danger sign, just like the one in the map with floating candles. You also need to be there at night. So, you may need to wait till night on the map if it is not already nighttime. You should of got this via the walk you had to Hogsmaede right at the start of the game. If not, the entrance to the Forbidden Forest is along the road between Hogsmaede and Hogwarts.

Once you’re there, equip the "Lumos" iconLumos spell next to the bridge. the candles will then spawn in the bridge’s fence. Follow the candles through the Forbidden Fores. Don’t worry about combat, as the candles take you through the paths with friendly critters. Eventually, they will lead you to a magical area, where some items spawn and a chest. Loot the chest, and you will complete the quest. We got the Treasure Seeker’s Scarf as the reward. You may get the same item too, since looting from the chest in the game seems to be somewhat random.

And there you have it, you now know how solve the Map with the Floating Candles in Hogwarts Legacy. Once you loot the chest, the Ghost of our Love in Hogwarts Legacy will conclude.
