Hogwarts Legacy: How To Unlock Locked Doors & Chests

You might want to find the secret to unlock those locked doors and chests in Hogwarts Legacy.

There are several charms and spells just to interact with your surroundings in Hogwarts Legacy. Some have to be obtained from certain quests, or some just come along with the main storyline. Say, for example, you can try revealing the hidden objects around you with Revelio. It will reveal all the hidden artifacts, doors, and chests. However, its power is limited.

If the door or the chest is locked, you cannot do more than Revilio with it. And to some extent, you can just Revelio things just like that until you reach that certain point in the game.

Now, there is another spell to do that job, and it does that job perfectly. You can easily unlock these locked doors and the chests you are dying to open. And that is about what we will be talking about here today. Hang on a bit more!

How to Unlock Locked Doors and Chests in Hogwarts Legacy

Learn Alohomora

As we have already mentioned, if you want to acquire a certain spell or charm, you must complete a certain quest or patiently wait till the main storyline does that job for you.

Now, to unlock locked doors and chests, you have to cast the Alohomora charm. It also goes by the name the “Unlocking Charm.” However, there are certain prerequisites before unlocking the Unlocking Charm itself. What might those be?

At the very first, you have to complete Percival Rackham’s Trial. There will be Four Ancient Magic Trials under this quest. Once you complete it, you will need to finish another job.

The second one is the Caretaker’s Lunar Lament. As these quests are part of the main storyline, you do not have to worry about missing these on your way out. Just after completing the Magic Trials, head back to Hogwarts. The caretaker of Hogwarts, Gladwin Moon, will be waiting for you down the Reception Hall.

Once you interact with him, his quest will start. After a while, he will teach the Alohomora charm to get inside a restricted part of Hogwarts. And that is how you get to learn the charm.

However, this charm has Three levels to reach. Once you complete all of Gladwin Moon’s quest, he will be delighted to teach you the advanced stages of the Alohomora charm. And that is how you will reach the advanced level of Alohomora.

Use Alohomora

Gladwin Moon will teach all the basics about using Alohomora. However, you still need to keep some other things in mind while using this special charm.

Whenever you interact with a locked door or chest, you will be shown the mechanism behind the lock. It is not even that hard. The lockpicking mechanism to unlock is just a simple matching game. You are good at this; I believe in you.

Now, you must keep in mind that you have to be extra patient when you are into lock picking. It can be quite exhausting if you are in a hurry. Just align those blinking lights in the same place for a couple of seconds, and you will hear the clicking sound at any time.

And that is how you can use Alohomora to unlock those locked doors and chests in Hogwarts Legacy. Evanesco!
