Hogwarts Legacy

Poached Egg

Jessica Dillon

Poppy Sweeting is one of the four companions you will befriend while playing Hogwarts Legacy. She is a friendly Hufflepuff with a passion for saving animals. The first portion of her quest line focuses on returning the dragon egg that you retrieved while completing the Fire and Vice main story quest. The guide below goes over how to complete Poached Egg in Hogwarts Legacy and progress the Poppy Sweeting storyline.

How to Start Poached Egg in Hogwarts Legacy

After speaking with Poppy and completing A Dragon Debrief, you simply need to use the wait feature. Afterward, you will receive owl mail from Poppy Sweeting asking you to once again meet her in "Hogsmeade" iconHogsmeade. This time, you will want to go to the circle at the north end of Hogsmeade. It’s here that you will speak with her and head off to return the missing dragon egg.

How to Complete Poached Egg in Hogwarts Legacy

Once you reach the area of the dragon nest, you will need to follow the path inside. The first problem you will face is some mongrels next to a destroyed bridge. Make quick work of them, as they aren’t very strong, and then head to the edge of the bridge, be careful not to fall off, or you will have to climb all the way back up. Use "Reparo" iconReparo to bring the bridge back together and then progress further into the dragon’s territory.

Once you progress, a cutscene will trigger that shows the mama dragon is ready to fight you and Poppy off. She will sit on top of the ruins on the other side of the map and hurl fireballs at you. You will want to run between the debris scattered around the open field until you can make your way to the next quest marker.

Dodging the dragon’s attacks.

You will need to go through three back-to-back levels like this. The dragon seems to have a limited number of fireballs she spits out in each one, so just use caution, and you will be able to progress without losing any of your health. After going through these three areas, you will find another busted-up bridge. Use Reparo to put it back together and head up to the dragon’s nest. Once you get there, a cutscene will play, and you will return the egg to its mother. To get to the next part of Poppy’s quest, simply use your map to wait again.
