Hogwarts Legacy’s Early Access begun on February 7th, 2023, and with the many editions you can pre-order, you’ll obtain bonus items. You may be wondering how you gain access to all these goodies once you boot the game up for the first time, look no further than this page for all of the information.
Where to Get Dark Arts Pack Bonus Items
Hogwarts Legacy opens with a prologue that takes you roughly one hour to complete, during which you’ll be introduced to many of the games basic controls as you explore the mysterious ruins and goblin bank. Soon after, you’ll find yourself at Hogwarts and after the Sorting Ceremony, you’ll select your House and spend your first night at Hogwarts.
The next morning, after a quick chat with your fellow students in the common room, you’ll be instructed to speak to Professor Weasley, who will hand over the Field Guide, which is your hub to everything Hogwarts Legacy. You’ll access your Map, Quests, Challenges, and, more importantly, your equipment.
Once you have access to the Field Guide, head to the Gear screen and you’ll find all of the slots where you can assign equipment. If you have the Dark Arts pack, you’ll find the cosmetic items by accessing the Appearance options when you hover over a piece of equipment. Under the Cloaks and Robes Slot, along with the Outfit slot, you’ll find the Dark Arts Robe and Dark Arts Ensemble. These items are cosmetic only and offer not bonuses to your stats.
Where to get the Onyx Hippogriff Mount
Unfortunately, you’re going to have to wait a bit longer before you get your hands on any bonus mounts you’ve claimed, such as the Onyx Hippogriff. You’ll access them in the same way as the Dark Arts pack, by heading to the Gear screen and going to the slot, but this won’t be accessible until you gain access to mounts in the game.
You’ll have to play a rather large chunk of the game for this, as it’s not until the 19th main quest where you’ll begin the Flying Class Quest. Once completed though, you’ll gain the ability to use mounts and can then use your bonus ones you downloaded.
