All Puzzles and Treasure in The Helm of Urtkot

Nathan Garvin

Thus far, you’ve usually had one substantial main quest at the end of numerous tutorials, assignments and transitory main quests capping off each section of the game. Do your busywork as a student around Hogwarts to learn essential spells (or other useful aspects of wizardry - brewing potions, herbology, flying, etc.), then move onto the next proper dungeon filled with puzzles, enemies and treasure. After completing Percival Rackham’s Trial, however, you’ll immediately be able to tackle another main quest with a proper dungeon. This page will help you solve all the puzzles and guide you to all the treasure in The Helm of Urtkot in Hogwarts Legacy.

(1 of 2) Talk to Sirona in "Hogsmeade" iconHogsmeade,

Talk to Sirona in "Hogsmeade" iconHogsmeade, (left), and she'll refer you to Lodgok, a goblin with a scheme to get info out of Ranrok. (right)

How to Start The Helm of Urtkot in Hogwarts Legacy

This quest will begin immediately after completing Percival Rackham’s Trial. You must have learned the "Depulso" iconDepulso spell by completing Professor Sharp’s Assignment 1 before you can begin this quest. To properly start the quest you’ll need to head to "The Three Broomsticks" iconThe Three Broomsticks in "Hogsmeade" iconHogsmeade and talk to Sirona, who will refer you to a goblin named Lodgok, who can be found in Hog’s Head, another establishment in "Hogsmeade" iconHogsmeade. Head there, talk to Lodgok, then, after some chatter, accompany him to a witch’s tomb (marked as a “Collector’s Cave” on the map) west of "Hogsmeade" iconHogsmeade. The matter of actually retrieving the stolen relic, will, of course, be left up to you alone.

(1 of 3) The main barrier to progress in the witch's tomb are sealed moth doors.

How to Solve the First Lumos Moth Puzzle

Enter the tomb and make sure you have fire spells (Confringo and "Incendio" iconIncendio) on one of your spell sets. You’ll also need to make use of "Accio" iconAccio, "Depulso" iconDepulso and "Lumos" iconLumos, so having one spell set prepared for puzzles and another for combat makes good sense.

When you’re ready, follow the linear path ahead until you find your way blocked by a moth door. Two moths flutter from within moth-shaped depression on the front of the door, while a third is conspicuously empty. Well, that’s no good. Head down a side passage to the left and you’ll find a moth on an ornate purchase. It’ll flutter around madly if you approach, just in case you weren’t quite aware this is a puzzle element. Cast "Lumos" iconLumos to attract the moth to your way, return to the sealed moth-door, then dispel "Lumos" iconLumos. Stranded away from its perch without light, the moth will choose the closest haven - the depression on the door. With all three moth depressions filled, the door will open.

Now that the introductory "Lumos" iconLumos Moth puzzle has been solved and you know what’s expected of you, you’ll be able to advance deeper into the tomb, where more complicated puzzles await.

(1 of 3) Loot a large chest between the first and second Lumos Moth puzzle.

How to Solve the Second Lumos Moth Puzzle

Go through the now-opened "Lumos" iconLumos Moth door and explore a side passage to the left to find a stone chest. Loot it, then continue down a tunnel to the west and north until you reach a circular tomb with a sarcophagus in the middle. This isn’t the witch’s tomb you’re looking for, however, and another "Lumos" iconLumos Moth door blocks your way to the north, this one with three empty depressions.

Two "Lumos" iconLumos Moths can be found in the circular room you’re in, one to the east, southeast, and another to the west. To find the third, use "Depulso" iconDepulso on some doors to the east, northeast, beyond which is a third "Lumos" iconLumos Moth perch. Use "Lumos" iconLumos to lead all the bugs to the "Lumos" iconLumos Moth door and when all three depressions are filled the "Lumos" iconLumos Moth door will open. You can also find a small chest in the room with the third "Lumos" iconLumos Moth.

(1 of 4) You'll have to hit "Inferius" iconInferius enemies with fire to make them receptive to other forms of damage.

After the second "Lumos" iconLumos Moth door is open, head down the passage beyond it until you reach another chamber, which will quickly fill with "Inferius" iconInferius enemies. There are about half a dozen of them, but you’ll likely only face several at a time. You must use fire spells like "Confringo" iconConfringo or "Incendio" iconIncendio before they’ll become receptive to damage from other sources, although "Ancient Magic" iconAncient Magic will bypass this immunity. There are also fire pots strewn throughout the chamber, which you can use to deal significant damage and inflict the fire damage you need to make "Inferius" iconInferius enemies vulnerable to followup attacks.

Once the "Inferius" iconInferius enemies are dead, search the northern wall to find some stacked rocks, which can be toppled with "Depulso" iconDepulso. Behind it you’ll find an alcove housing a bag you can loot and a purse of money. In the main chamber, climb onto a ledge to the southwest to find a large chest

How to Solve the Third Lumos Moth Puzzle

Defeat the "Inferius" iconInferius enemies and loot the room they guarded, then head down a passage to the west, then north, vaulting over an obstruction to reach the third "Lumos" iconLumos Moth door. This puzzle introduces a new feature - the "Lumos" iconLumos Moth wheel, which dominates the center of this chamber. When a "Lumos" iconLumos Moth is housed in a depression on the wheel, you’ll be able to spin it with "Depulso" iconDepulso, which will activate some feature or another - in this case, it’ll elevate a platform to the east.

Two "Lumos" iconLumos Moth perches can be found in this chamber, and a third is up a ledge to the east. Install one "Lumos" iconLumos Moth (by luring it with "Lumos" iconLumos) in the "Lumos" iconLumos Moth wheel and hit it with "Depulso" iconDepulso several time to spin it and raise a platform to the east. When the platform is raised, quickly climb atop it, then climb onto a higher ledge to the east, where another "Lumos" iconLumos Moth perch awaits. Use "Lumos" iconLumos to grab this moth, drop back down into the main chamber, and put the "Lumos" iconLumos Moth in the "Lumos" iconLumos Moth door. Now all you have to do is lure the "Lumos" iconLumos Moths in the main chamber (one on its original perch, one on the "Lumos" iconLumos Moth wheel) to the door and you’ll be able to advance.

(1 of 3) Use Accio to pull a pile of bones to form a section of bridge,

Go through the third "Lumos" iconLumos Moth door and the path will split. Turn right (west) and climb a ledge, then turn around a corner to the north to find a chamber where a large chest sits tantalizingly out of reach. To reach this chest you’ll need to stand on a landing and use "Accio" iconAccio on some piles of bones strewn throughout the room. One such bone pile can be found across the gap to the northeast, another pile of bones can be found in a coffer to the west, and a third is in a coffer below you to the northeast (use "Accio" iconAccio to pull the coffer open and reveal the bones). If you use "Accio" iconAccio on these bone piles, they should float up and form a macabre bone bridge, but they’re awfully fussy and you may have trouble getting both sections of the bridge to “stick”. Fortunately you only need one section of bone bridge, after which you can perform a running jump to the chest platform to the north.

(1 of 5) Use Depulso to open a door,

Once the large chest is looted, backtrack to the fork and continue down the previously neglected western route, which will shortly lead to a chamber where you’ll find a rickety floor grate with a pulley hanging over it. Before bothering with that, however, there’s some more treasure you can nab. "Depulso" iconDepulso a door to the north, then climb onto a box near a ledge and use the height provided by the box to reach the higher ledge, on top of which is another large chest. Once done, drop back down, "Accio" iconAccio the box to the east, then climb atop the box and use it to reach another ledge, where a small chest resides.

(1 of 2) Use a spell to destroy the pulley,

Use a spell to destroy the pulley, (left), then after diving into the pit, find a handle you can pull with Accio to create a shortcut. (right)

How to Solve the Bone Bridge Puzzles and Destroy the Pulley

Return to the room with the pulley and you should notice you can target the device. Any spell capable of generating sufficient force should be capable of destroying the pulley, causing it to drop its payload and smash the grate below. You can use "Diffindo" iconDiffindo, "Confringo" iconConfringo, or, oddly enough, "Accio" iconAccio to achieve this. Once done, jump into the hole and you’ll find your fall broken by some water. A levitation spell would be… just lovely.

There are two paths you can take from here - southeast, and west. West leads to the fourth and final puzzle, while going southeast will allow you to open up a shortcut. Go southeast first and when you reach dry land follow the linear passage until you reach a sealed door looking into the pulley room. Turn right and use "Accio" iconAccio on a handle in the wall to pull out a slab of stone, which opens the nearby door. Simple. Now that the way back is clear, return to the water and swim over to the western shore.

How to Solve the Fourth Lumos Moth Puzzle

The chamber west of the pit is full of "Inferius" iconInferius enemies - around a dozen of them. They don’t all spawn at once, but you’ll likely be fighting half a dozen of them at once, which can make this a pretty hectic fight. If you deal fire damage to them, they’ll become receptive to damage from other attacks, but they’ll also start performing unblockable attacks. That being the case, resorting to dodging instead of relying on "Protego" iconProtego may be easier this time around. You’ve got a few firepots you can use to speed things up, but there’s not enough to account for all the "Inferius" iconInferius enemies. Survive the onslaught, after which you can get around to the important business of solving the fourth and final puzzle in this dungeon.

This puzzle puts together everything you’ve learned in the last few puzzles, and adds a bit extra, just in case. The "Lumos" iconLumos Moth door is up on a ledge to the west, but to reach that ledge you’ll need to spin a "Lumos" iconLumos Moth wheel and raise a platform. Using "Depulso" iconDepulso will cancel any "Lumos" iconLumos spells you have in effect, causing any lured "Lumos" iconLumos Moths to fly back to their perch. Fortunately if you hit the "Lumos" iconLumos Moth wheel with "Depulso" iconDepulso several times in succession, it’ll fully raise and stay in place for a moment, giving you enough time to cross from ledges on either side of the platform.

(1 of 2) Take a Lumos Moth and place it on a vacant perch,

Take a Lumos Moth and place it on a vacant perch, (left), then place a second Lumos Moth on a moth wheel. (right)

With that established, note a "Lumos" iconLumos Moth perch to the west, southwest, which currently doesn’t house a "Lumos" iconLumos Moth. Two occupied "Lumos" iconLumos Moth perches can be found to the south and east, while a third is in an alcove just to the right of the "Lumos" iconLumos Moth door (can be hard to see from the ground) and a fourth is on the ledge opposite the "Lumos" iconLumos Moth door. Here’s how to solve this puzzle:

  • Lure the "Lumos" iconLumos Moth in the southern alcove with "Lumos" iconLumos and place it on the vacant "Lumos" iconLumos Moth perch to the west, southwest.

  • Lure the "Lumos" iconLumos Moth in the eastern alcove and place it on the "Lumos" iconLumos Moth wheel.

(1 of 3) Stand on a platform between two ledges and hit the moth wheel with Depulso repeatedly.

  • Stand on the raisable platform between the two ledges (northwest, just past the "Lumos" iconLumos Moth wheel) and from here hit the "Lumos" iconLumos Moth Wheel with "Depulso" iconDepulso several times.

  • When the platform reaches the top, turn northeast and head onto the ledge. Quickly lure a "Lumos" iconLumos Moth with "Lumos" iconLumos, then turn around and run and jump across the now-lowering platform to reach the southwestern ledge. Place the "Lumos" iconLumos Moth on the "Lumos" iconLumos Moth door.

  • Use "Lumos" iconLumos to lure a second "Lumos" iconLumos Moth from its perch just to the right of the "Lumos" iconLumos Moth door and place it in said door.

(1 of 2) Stand in front of the Lumos Moth door and blast the wheel with Depulso,

Stand in front of the Lumos Moth door and blast the wheel with Depulso, (left), when fully raised, find the previously vacant Lumos Moth perch and lure the moth off it to open the nearby door. (right)

  • From the walkway in front of the "Lumos" iconLumos Moth door, look down at the "Lumos" iconLumos Moth wheel and hit it with "Depulso" iconDepulso several times until the platform is fully raised, then turn right (southeast) away from the platform. The vacant "Lumos" iconLumos Moth platform on the ground floor - upon which you placed the "Lumos" iconLumos Moth from the southern alcove - also raises when you turn the "Lumos" iconLumos Moth wheel. When fully raised you should be able to lure the "Lumos" iconLumos Moth on that perch by casting "Lumos" iconLumos near the railing. Do so and place it on the door to finally open the way forward.

(1 of 3) Loot a small chest at the end of the ledge,

Before you leave, note that you can find some treasure on the northeastern ledge, which is easier to explore now that you don’t have to fuss with "Lumos" iconLumos Moths - just use "Depulso" iconDepulso to raise the platform connecting the two ledges as necessary. Once across, loot a small chest on the eastern edge of this ledge, then go down some stairs to the left (north) to find a chamber housing a small chest and a large chest.

(1 of 3) Loot a dead Ashwinder for a Signet Ring,

Whew! Now that that’s over with, head through the fourth "Lumos" iconLumos Moth door to find the witch’s tomb. Unfortunately, you’re not the first one here recently, as the corpse of an Ashwinder attests. Loot him for a Signet Ring, then plunder a large chest to the right (north). When you’re ready to leave, examine the wall behind the tomb to the west.
