(1 of 2) Sparks have been locked into place by Wizards keeping their thumbstick in an outwards position. the wheels can now be turned to find the right configuration to activate the cogs.

After guiding the relevant spark into a slot, keep the Thumbstick in the outwards position and begin to rotate it around until the corresponding inner gears begin to turn. Repeat this process with the second spark whilst keeping the correct positioning of the previous gear. Once both gears are turning, the lock pick has been completed and will release the bolt on the left. Remember to keep the correct thumbstick positioning until the lock has completely unlocked.

How To Get Alohomora

We would say that learning how to lock pick using Alohomora in Hogwarts Legacy is very similar to the Batman Arkham and Marvel’s Spider-Man radio frequency mini games, just remember to maintain that thumbstick position once the gears start turning. Wizards can unlock the Alohomora spell by unlocking the quest “Prepare For Your Search For The Final Keeper”.

This will require Wizards and Witches to find out what the School caretaker, Gladwin Moon, is really up to in the staff tower. After speaking to Moon, this will unlock another quest called “The Caretakers Lunar Lament”. Progressing through this mission will provide Wizards and Witches with the Alohomora spell. At first, this will only allow the unlocking of level one doors, but can be upgraded by two further levels to unlock level 2 and 3 locks also.
