Throughout your journey in the Hogwarts Legacy, you will find a lot of different locked doors and chests. But unfortunately, you will not be able to check what’s present on the door’s other side and what’s lying within the chest. These doors and chests provide clues to the game’s many secrets and are also the source of fantastic rewards. Even if you can’t get through them right now, it’s only for some time until you unlock them. In this blog post, we’ll explore how to unlock Hogwarts Legacy doors and chests so that you can get the most out of your experience. We’ll look at the way of opening, tips, and tricks for getting the most out of your game.

How to Unlock Doors and Chests in Hogwarts Legacy

If you’re looking to unlock the mysteries of Hogwarts Legacy, you’ll have to wait until you come across the main story quest, ‘The Caretaker’s Lunar Lament.’ At this point, you will have a formal introduction to Gladwin Moon, the custodian of Hogwarts. He’s typically strong, but he’s been suspicious of someone intentionally trying to torture him. At Hogwarts, you are sure to come across the custodian Gladwin Moon. He’s usually stern, yet lately, he has grown increasingly scared that someone is aiming to deceive him. He was recently confronted with a Boggart, which took the shape of his worst fear—a Demiguise. There are statues everywhere, and he attempts to reveal who is behind it all.

For your journey, Gladwin imparts to you Alohomora, one of the witchcraft spells of Hogwarts Legacy, which can unlock doors and chests that may hold rare items and collectibles. But remember, it takes some time for gameplay until you reach this quest and get this fantastic magic spell. Gladwin will only teach you the first level of the spell, but you can increase its level to three by giving Gladwin additional Demiguise Statues you found during the adventure. Increasing the level of Alohomora will enable it to open more advanced locks and chests, which are often home to more powerful rewards.

How to Open Higher-level Doors

Initially, Alohomora will only allow you to unlock Level 1 doors. To increase the lock levels that you can unlock, you will need to find and collect as many as 30 Demiguise Statues in the game world. By doing so, your spell will increase in power and enable you to unlock higher-level doors. This process can take some time if you don’t know where to look. However, with patience and perseverance, your spell should improve quickly, allowing you to progress further in the Legacy.

How to Open Hogwarts Legacy Doors

Completing the quest is the only way to obtain the Alohomora spell and open any locked door you come across. To open the door, you must first approach it and initiate the mini-game. Once you enter the lockpicking screen, the first step is to align the red spark until it starts to spin, signifying it is in the correct position. After that, replicate this procedure with the green spark.

When attempting to unlock a door using two spinning sparks, the process can be slightly tricky and may require some attempts. Firstly, it’s necessary to maneuver them into their correct slots using analog sticks. You need to adjust the positioning of the objects significantly, but once they can rotate autonomously, it indicates that they have been suitably positioned. Once you’ve achieved this, you’ll want to hold your position with both analog sticks for a few seconds until the door opens. This process can be tricky at first, but with enough practice and concentration, any player should eventually get the hang of it.
