There are plenty of quests that you can find while exploring the lands outside of Hogwarts. One such side quest is called Rescuing Rococo, and it has you cleaning up some enemies for a local merchant. This is a bit of a confusing quest as it takes place in a mini-dungeon with quite a few different types of puzzles. The guide below goes over how to start Rescuing Rococo and how to finish the side quest in Hogwarts Legacy.
How to Rescue Rococo in Hogwarts Legacy
To start Rescue Rococo in Hogwarts Legacy, you will need to go to a small town of Bainburgh and speak with the merchant Agness. She has two quests to give you. You may also want to take a detour to Poidsear Castle and pick up the marked map since bother Rescuing Rococo and Hippogriff marks the spot crossover.
How to Complete Rescuing Rococo in Hogwarts Legacy
To complete Rescuing Rococo, you will need to fly all the way down to Marunweem Lake and go to the southernmost part. Here you will see some church-like ruins and a ton of Ashwinders looking to defend it. You can either choose to deal with them, or ignore them and head down the stairs to enter the ruins. Once inside, you will immediately be greeted by a cube puzzle, much like the ones you have to solve to open Treasure Vaults.
Light the torch on the nearby statue to reveal the hidden cube. Then you will need to move both cubes to their matching pedestal with Accio and then cast a spell from their family, the cube on the left needs a fire spell, while Glacius will work for the cube on the right.
With this, the wall straight in front of you will open and you will see a room with a large Hippogriff statue. Inside there are several Ashwinders to defeat, including a few that will attack from above. Once they are dealt with, go up the stairs and use Revelio to find the enchanted floor, you will need to use Arresto Momentum on it to pass.
In the next room, there will be more Ashwinders to defeat. Once they are taken care of, climb up the steps and look across. There will be a cube you need to use Accio to pull down. Jump down using the break in the stairs and look under them using Revelio to show a trick wall. All you need to do is walk towards it and it will open.
Once inside you Accio to grab the second cube and proceed with it up the stairs and around the hall. Once back in the room, bring both cubes to their matching pedestals. Use Levioso on the left cube and a fire spell, such as Confringo on the right.
The final room will now open in front of you, go inside to find the Niffler running around. All you need to do is use your Nab-sack to collect him and then return to Agness. Once there you will have three choices after telling her you have recovered Rococo.
- Give Him Back
- Give Him Back For a Fee
- Keep Rococo
Like with most choices in the game, it doesn’t matter which one you choose. You can get a bit more money or have yourself a free mischievous Niffler if you choose.
