Where to find all beasts in Hogwarts Legacy – Location guide

Fantastic Beasts.

After completing the story quest ‘The Elf, the Nab-Sack, and the Loom,’ one of the most alluring features in any video game is unlocked: capturing animals. Or, in the case of Hogwarts Legacy, magical beasts, and putting them in an enclosure to feed and groom. You may be forgiven for immediately unlocking this and setting off to capture every magical beast in the game (not naming names, but speaking from experience). If this description happens to apply to you, here’s where to find all beasts in Hogwarts Legacy.

Not all magic beasts to find in Hogwarts Legacy are easy to get to

Graphorn

Southeast of Clagmar Castle. Unlike most beasts, you can find the den location for the Graphorn in Hogwarts Legacy in the south part of the map, but you won’t be able to capture it until you progressed enough into the main story.

Phoenix

The Phoenix is found inside the Phoenix Mountain Cave, but is locked behind a story quest from Deek. This one is the final challenge of capturing beasts, so complete all of Deek’s quests and progress the main story to confront it.

With that, you now know where to find the locations of the beasts of Hogwarts Legacy. Have fun catching them all.
