Best brooms and upgrades in Hogwarts Legacy

Take to the skies.

One of the most exhilarating activities in Hogwarts Legacy is flying around the Highlands on your broom. Eventually, you’ll get a quest called “Flying Class,” which enables you to shop at the Quidditch store in Hogsmeade to buy more brooms and upgrades.

At Spintwitch’s Sporting Needs, you’ll find the best selection of brooms and upgrades. But which broom should you spend your galleons on? Here, we will cover the best brooms and upgrades to acquire in Hogwarts Legacy.

Where to find the best brooms in Hogwarts Legacy

The sad truth about brooms in Hogwarts Legacy is they are all the same stat-wise. No broom flies faster, has more boost, or has hidden moves. The only difference between brooms and where one could argue there is the best broom in Hogwarts Legacy is with cosmetics.

Spintwitch’s Sporting Needs

When you unlock Spintwitch’s Sporting Needs, you’ll only be able to purchase a broom from a selection of five. Sadly, there really are no “best brooms” in Hogwarts Legacy, since each of them performs the same. Personally, I think it’s a shame that all the brooms are the same, but I do like how you fly confidently on whichever broom you fancy knowing that they all perform the same.

So, choose which one you like the most based on looks. Every broom at the store costs 600 galleons. Each broom, whether you get it at the shop or elsewhere, has its own unique design. Here are the brooms you can find at Spintwitch’s:

  • Hogwarts House Broom
  • Ember Dash Broom
  • Moon Trimmer Broom
  • Wind Wisp Broom
  • Yew Weaver Broom

Apart from this Quidditch shop in Hogsmeade, you can actually purchase more brooms from other vendors across the Highlands. Keep on reading to find out where to find the other broom vendors in Hogwarts Legacy.

Locations for additional brooms in Hogwarts Legacy

First, I’ll show you where to get all brooms in Hogwarts Legacy. After this section, I’ll show you how to get all the broom upgrades that apply to each and every broom.

Aeromancer Broom: Rohan Prakash

This merchant sells the Aeromancer Broom for 3,000 galleons. To find Rohan, teleport to the Marunween Bridge Floo Flame, then head southwest. Rohan’s shop is very close by.

Family Antique Broom: Priya Treadwell

You can find Priya Treadwell’s shop right near the Feldcroft Battle Arena, southwest of Irondale. She sells the Family Antique Broom for 2,500 galleons.

Silver Arrow Broom: Arn

One of the most expensive brooms you can buy is the beautiful Silver Arrow Broom. I personally love this broom because of its one-of-a-kind look. Arn, the goblin painter, will sell you this broom. To unlock his shop, you must complete Arn’s side quest first in Lower Hogsfield, called Carted Away. This broom is priced at 5,000 galleons.

Sky Scythe Broom: Leopolde Babcocke

Finally, the other expensive broom, which costs 5,000 galleons as well, can be purchased from Leopolde Babcocke. It is called Sky Scythe and I think it’s beauty matches its name. His shop is located right by Hogsmeade station, south of Hogsmeade.

How to get the best upgrades for brooms in Hogwarts Legacy

The only way to get broom upgrades is to complete the three Flight Test side quests with Imelda Reyes. As soon as you buy a broom from Albie Weekes, the owner of the Quidditch shop, you’ll unlock the Flight Test side quest.

In a set of three quests, you must race on your broom and fly through hoops to beat the record time. After completing each race, Albie will come up with a new broom upgrade. The first upgrade costs 1,000 galleons, the second is 4,000, and the third is 7,500. Luckily, the upgrades are well worth it, since each one increases your speed and acceleration.

Also, don’t worry about buying an upgrade for each broom you buy. The upgrades work for whatever broom you’re using and its appearance can be changed in the gear menu. Hopefully, this guide was useful in helping you find the best brooms and upgrades in Hogwarts Legacy. Now, you can look into how to get all ground and flying mounts in Hogwarts Legacy.
