Where to find the best brooms in Hogwarts Legacy

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 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.

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 switched in the gear menu. Hopefully, this guide was useful in helping you find the best brooms and upgrades in Hogwarts Legacy.

Hogwarts Legacy is available via Steam.
