In the mid-game of Hogwarts Legacy it is possible to start the treasure hunt "Treasure of the Cursed Tomb". Our guide tells you which requirements you have to meet and how you can solve the quest.

Caution, higher requirements: Treasure hunts are very lucrative activities in Hogwarts Legacy, and "Treasure of the Cursed Tomb" is one of the most extensive in the open-world role-playing game. However, there is a catch, because this quest is mid-game content with corresponding requirements for your character's training.

Thus, you will only be able to successfully complete this treasure hunt if...

  • your Hogwarts student has reached at least level 24.
  • you have unlocked the lower half of the world map.
  • you are in possession of Urkot's helmet.
  • you can pick locks of the third level.

Only when these requirements are met, the quest "Treasure of the Cursed Tomb" will appear in the south of the map. Go there to start the quest.

A Cave in the South

Once at the quest location, you will first have to fight your way through several rows of enemies to get to the treasure map in the picture below.

It works like usual, so it does not tell you the exact location of the treasure, but gives visual clues to it. If you follow them, you will get to the place we hihlighted in the world map below.

Now enter the cave in front of you and get ready for some attacking spiders. The path will then lead you to a puzzle in the form of a "butterfly door". To open it, you'll proceed in a similar way to the empty picture frames in Hogwarts University; thus, you'll have to lead three butterflies to the door. You will find the first one in a crypt to your left. There you need to cast the Levioso spell to be able to climb up a ledge.

However, eventually I pursued a career as a video game journalist, which I started at the prestigious Ehapa-Verlag publisher, among others. Today, I share my extensive video game expertise with Guided. I benefit from over 40 years of experience with PC and console games, as well as my work in game development for the indie studio Knights of Bytes. I understand how video games work, and I also know how to convey my knowledge in an understandable manner.
