For Wizards and Witches who survived the path to Hogwarts, it’s time to get settled in with the main quest “Welcome To Hogwarts”. Meet fellow students, new professors and get to grips with Hogwarts Legacy navigation and other mechanics with a bit of help from this handy guide. Let’s jump straight into “Welcome To Hogwarts”.

Welcome To Hogwarts

On awakening from the hectic Path To Hogwarts, Wizards or Witches will find themselves in the chosen dormitory of the house they picked the night before. In this case, we picked Gryffindor, so we now need to find the common room. The route to it will be tracked in yellow dots on the mini-map, so it’s next to impossible to get lost.

They’ll be plenty of students to interact with in the Gryffindor common room. We found and introduced ourselves to Cressida, Garreth and Nellie, all of which will be available to build relationships with and perform side quests for later in Hogwarts Legacy. Professor Weasley will meet you outside your chosen common room to get you up to speed with all things Hogwarts, including receiving your Field Guide. This is a Wizard or Witches bible in Hogwarts Legacy. It provides maps, quest logs, gear and item management, talent management, and more.

Following Professor Weasley through the corridors will educate Wizards and Witches about Floo Flames. She will task players with finding the Central Hall, located in the South Wing region. An essential feature of Hogwarts is that the left-hand side is reserved for Student and Professor living quarters, with the right used for lessons and whatnot. Wizards and Witches simply need to pass by a Floo Flame to unlock it on its relevant map to enable fast travel to that location. Move the cursor over a green Floo Flame and press Square or X to travel to that location.

Continue to follow Professor Weasley to the Central Hall, where she will explain two classes on today’s schedule, Charms and Defense Against The Dark Arts. She’ll also press on about what happened on the path to Hogwarts, stating she doubts it was just a Dragon attack and an extended trip to Hogwarts. Players can choose to keep things to themselves as Professor Fig requested or to elaborate further on the events. We chose to stay quiet for now; Professor Fig seemed like a good egg.

Intact, Fig turns up just in time when Weasley hands over to Professor Fig. The Welcome to Hogwarts main quest ends after Fig points out some key map markers and how to track quests, which is all straight forward stuff. Now, off to lessons Wizards and Witches!
