Hogwarts Legacy Puzzle Door Header

Hogwarts Legacy comes with several puzzles that can be solved to unlock chests and new areas. There are curious doors you will find around Hogwarts, and they have 10 symbols of animals and creatures around the doorframe. You will notice that using the Revelio spell near one of these doors reveals a math equation. You will also notice there are two interactable dice embedded in the walls nearby these doors, and they have all of the symbols from the door on them. This equation must be solved to open the door, but how? 

In this Hogwarts Legacy Puzzle Doors guide, we will discuss each of the puzzle doors we have found, where to find the datasheet to solve the puzzles, as well as the solutions to them if you don't want to search for the answer. Note: We're still playing through and finding additional doors.

Hogwarts Legacy Puzzle Doors Data Sheet

If you stumble upon one of these doors in the wrong order, you are going to be extremely lost and confused as to what to do to open them. The "first" door has a chest nearby that gives you all of the data you need to open these mysterious pathways. For those of you who want to find this sheet on your own, you will first need to head to the Library Annex Floo Flame. From there, to make things much easier, you can take a look at the map and locate the Divination Classroom Floo Flame on the map. Even if you have yet to unlock it, it still appears on the map, and you can select this Floo Flame to give you a waypoint directly to it. 

Once you are at the Divination Classroom Floo Flame, you will notice a doorway directly to the right of the flame with a small set of stairs. Go into that room, up the stairs, and into the rafters. You will then follow the pathway of wood floors straight ahead until you reach a little bridge that will be on your right. Make a right, and you will immediately see one of those puzzle doors, but with a few other items around it. Walk up to the Chalkboard that is directly in front of the puzzle door, and you will find a small blue chest that can be opened. Open it up and here you will find the sheet that gives you the data you need to solve the equations on each and every puzzle door like the one you are standing in front of. 

How To Solve The Puzzle Doors in Hogwarts Legacy

For those who might want to just guess with the dice until it works, you can do that too. Or, if you don't feel like searching for the datasheet, here is exactly what the datasheet looks like with the answers to all of the puzzle doors:

Now, how do you actually solve the puzzles? Simply put, each of them have a "?" and a "??" somewhere on the equation found on the doors blackboard (this equation is revealed once you have used the Revelio spell nearby or selected "Reveal" by the door.) These question marks correspond to a symbol you need to find. The answer to the equation is in the center of each of them. Here is the "First" puzzle door as an example of what we mean by "equation" and the answer being in the center of it:

Hogwarts Legacy first Puzzle Door Equation

As you can see in the image above, the first equation (the one within the circle at the top of the door), there is a Hydra symbol, a number two, and a "?" symbol. If you take a look at the datasheet, we know that the Hydra symbol equals the number three. The question mark is the number you need to figure out to unlock the door. So, using math, we see 3(the Hydra) + 2 (already revealed on the equation) + ? = 9. Well, 3+2= 5, so we now need to make that = 9 by finding the "?", right? Looking at the data sheet, we see that the odd looking owl-like figure equals four. So again, using basic math, we now know that the answer would be Hydra + 2 + Odd Looking Owl = 9. 

The answer to the second equation on the door is 0 + Hydra + 1 = 4

This is the idea you will use when trying to unlock each door; basic math using symbols that correspond to a number. Here is a quick list of all of the symbols as well as there corresponding number to simplify the answers for the rest of the doors we will list below: 

  • Furry Seal-Like Creature: 0
  • Unicorn: 1
  • Goat With Tentacles: 2
  • Hydra with 3 heads: 3
  • Odd Looking Owl: 4
  • 5 Legged Hairy Creature: 5
  • Lizard: 6
  • Squid-like Creature: 7
  • Spider: 8
  • Snake with 9 heads: 9
