How to Solve the Moonstone Puzzle in Hogwarts Legacy

Once you have placed the moonstone, the actual puzzle can begin. The game doesn't tell you much about the puzzle at first. It only consists of a circle with symbols and columns.

Look carefully! If you look closely at the puzzle, you should notice something. Two hard-to-see lines point to two of the magic symbols. One of the symbols looks like a sun without a snowflake. The other looks like a circle, with some hooks down and a dot in the middle.

Note: In the second symbol, the dot in the middle is important. Another symbol looks exactly the same, but the dot in the middle of the circle is missing.

The Goal: Okay, we now know how the puzzle is constructed. However, the goal is not yet clear. But the puzzle even shows that directly. Your task is to move the columns to point to the opposite side of the magic signs. The moonstone must illuminate the symbols, so you must move the columns to the other end of the circle.

This is how the columns should be positioned to open the entrance to the ruin.

The Solution: We summarize here how you can solve the moonstone puzzle.

  • Place the moonstone in the center of the platform.
  • Look at the entrance and discover the two symbols that the lines point to.
  • Find the symbols on the circle on the floor.
  • Turn the columns opposite each other to the position of the symbols.

This will illuminate the magic signs and open the entrance to the ruin.
