Do you need a The Daedalian Keys walkthrough for Hogwarts Legacy? The Daedalian Keys is a Side Quest that begins in Transfiguration Courtyard. As part of our Hogwarts Legacy guide, we are going to share our full The Daedalian Keys walkthrough, which includes a step-by-step guide to every objective, puzzle solutions, and combat strategies.
Hogwarts Legacy: The Daedalian Keys Walkthrough
In the Transfiguration Courtyard, Gryffindor student Nellie Oggspire will be talking excitedly about something called the Daedalian Keys. Speak to her and she'll tell you about a set of special, enchanted keys that have returned to Hogwarts.
Your first objective is to go and find one of the keys. The game will pinpoint it for you; it's located in the Astronomy Tower. Follow the key and it'll lead you to a locked cabinet. To unlock it, you have to press X as the key passes over the keyhole. Opening the cabinet will reward you with a House Token, representative of your character's house.
Return to Nellie and tell her what you found. You'll then be directed to return to your house common room and locate the House Chest. Each common room has a large, golden chest inside, with slots in the top for all the House Tokens. Once you've inserted the first one, you'll then be tasked with finding the remaining 15 Daedalian Keys around Hogwarts. See below for guidance on where to find them all.
Once you have found all of the Daedalian Keys and retrieved all the House Tokens, return to your house's common room and go to the House Chest. Insert all the House Tokens and it'll open, rewarding you with a Relic House Uniform gear appearance. There is a unique uniform for each house. Equip it by changing the appearance of your Cloaks and Robes gear slot.
Return to Nellie Oggspire to tell her what you found and end the Side Quest.
