Quest requirements

The Hogwarts Legacy Niamh Fitzgerald’s Trial quest becomes available at the end of this particular section of the campaign. Prior to this, you’ll need to do the following:

After you’re done with those, you’re told that the former headmistress, Niamh Fitzegerald, has appeared in her portrait in the Map Chamber. She mentions that you have to enter the Headmaster’s Office, but you don’t know the password yet. This leads you to a quest called The Polyjuice Plot where, as the name implies, you’ll pretend to be the headmaster so you can ask people about the password. Just track the quest and proceed as normal.

Then, you’ll make your way to the phoenix gargoyle in front of the Headmaster’s Office (just past the Trophy Room fast travel point). This will reveal the magic staircase to the Headmaster’s Office. Do note that unlocking this area allows you to do the Key of Admittance puzzle, but we suggest focusing on the main quest for now. Anyway, check the book on the second floor landing to get whisked away…

The Cloak: Death all around you

The reason why the Hogwarts Legacy Niamh Fitzgerald’s Trial quest might be one of the best in the game is due to the design. It will remind you of a sketchbook, not quite the style of the cinematic from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, but just as entrancing. And, yes, the central theme here revolves around the Deathly Hallows themselves.

At the start, you’ll see Death and various reapers roaming around village that seems to have been ravaged by war or plague. This is a stealth section: you cannot get spotted at all. As such, your best bet is to simply watch where the reapers are looking and wait for them to pass. Your character will also remark when it’s finally safe.

At the end of this section, you’ll pick up a Mysterious Cloak (i.e., the Invisibility Cloak). It will let you pass through the streets without being detected.

The Wand: Absolute mayhem

That will lead you to an altar with a Mysterious Wand (i.e., the Elder Wand). It turns your spells into buffed up versions (i.e., a Bombarda that blows up rubble), and it also boosts their recharge rate. Do take note that spell slots seem to be locked here (you can’t open the panel at all). As such, it might be a hassle if you prefer your bread-and-butter abilities.

Anyway, you’ll fight several reapers and shadow wolves here. Eventually, you’ll find yourself in an open area where Death is goading you. He’ll summon several enemies, including trolls. Use your powers as best as you can to defeat your foes.

The Stone: The conclusion

When that’s done, you’ll be transported to an empty space that has the Mysterious Stone (i.e., Resurrection Stone). You’ll then arrive at a cemetery where people are mourning. As you approach the end of the path, the stone will create a vision of Niamh. She’ll take you to a statue where you’ll learn of her memories via a pensieve. When you’re done, return to the Map Chamber to find that the fourth keeper, San Bakar, has returned to his portrait. This concludes the Hogwarts Legacy Niamh Fitzgerald’s Trial quest.
