Hogwarts Legacy

How to Recover Arn's Carts - Carted Away Walkthrough

Nathan Garvin

Not all goblins share Ranrok’s animosity against wizards, and as usual when in-group solidarity is rejected, reprisals often follow. This page will cover the side quest Carted Away in Hogwarts Legacy, providing strategies for recovering Arn’s stolen carts by force, stealth, or some mix of the two.

This quest will become available after you complete Complete The Girl from Uagadou, although it also takes place right next to the followup main quest Trials of Merlin. When you’re ready to begin, head southeast of the "Lower Hogsfield" iconLower Hogsfield Floo Flame to find a goblin named Arn standing by the shore of the lake. Talk to him to learn he’s been victimized by his fellow goblin - some of Ranrok’s loyalists - for believing in a peaceful resolution to the goblin/wizard feud that has largely simmered in the backstory thus far. As they say, the enemy of my enemy is… well, in this case a down-on-his-luck artist who needs some help recovering his carts.

(1 of 3) You can either charge through the front gate and duke it out with the loyalist goblins,

How to Free Arn’s Carts in Hogwarts Legacy

Ranrok’s cart-stealing cronies are encamped a good ways to the south and slightly west, and while the distance isn’t trivial, there are roads that will take you right near to your goal. Along the way you’ll probably encounter giant spiders (likely "Thornback Shooter" iconThornback Shooters) which you can defeat or avoid, as you wish.

When you arrive you’ll find that the goblins have set up a fort, and while you can walk right in and pick a fight with the handful of goblins within, you have other options. If you do pick a fight, be wary, as trying to juggle several foes at once is always a tricky proposition. Be ready to take down barriers (yellow or red) and try to finish off foes instead of spreading the damage around.

Alternatively, you can use stealth. Equip and cast the "Disillusionment" iconDisillusionment spell, be wary of line of sight, and try to keep your distance from enemies. A Loyalist goblin may venture off on patrol out the front gate, making him easy enough to dispatch - if you’re undetected and sneak up on an enemy, you can stealthily take them out in one shot with the "Petrificus Totalus" iconPetrificus Totalus attack. No extra work or thought involved, just press DualSense-ButtonSquare / Xbox-ButtonX when prompted and you’ll have one less enemy to worry about. If you’re going for a stealthy approach, you can easily infiltrate the fort by jumping over the northwestern wall - you can even use some cliffs along the southern edge of the fort to jump back into the enclosure where Arn’s carts are being kept! No need to use the front gate, after all.

Dispatch or sneak past the loyalist goblins as you prefer, then make your way to the southern edge of the fort to find a gate. Hold down DualSense-ButtonSquare / Xbox-ButtonX when prompted to open the gate and the carts will start to make their way back to Arn… and for whatever reason, any surviving goblins don’t seem too concerned by this.

Return to Arn and inform him of the imminent arrival of his carts to complete this quest. What you say to him doesn’t influence the outcome or reward in any way. Speaking of which, he’ll give you a Goblin-Made Helmet for your efforts.
