The Locked Door Near Headmaster’s Office in Hogwarts Legacy

Now, to access the locked door near the Headmaster’s Office, you must first obtain the Key of Admittance. This key is located in the study room above the Headmaster’s office. However, to access the office, you must complete Niamh’s Trial and have a level three Alohomora spell, which can be obtained by finding Demiguise Moons, which I presume you have obtained by now.

At first, use the Floo Flames to travel to the Trophy Room located in the Grand Staircase area of Hogwarts. After navigating through the hallway filled with statues and passing through a gate, players should ascend the stairs and reach a stonewall. From here, they can choose between two exterior entrances, both of which require the usage of Alohomora to unlock.

The first door is at the top of the staircase, beside a stained-glass window. Upon opening this door, players can enter Headmaster Black’s secret office, where the Key of Admittance can be found on the desk.

However, there is another way to access Headmaster Black’s office. You can use your Broom to reach the balcony attached to his office. After getting the key, you can get out of the office by using the Floo Flame or the Broom.

Now, interact with the door, and you will see a couple of chests waiting for you. The first one will contain outfit items. After that, use the staircase, and you will come across a pedestal. Needless to say, you will be using Revelio without a second thought. It will then reveal a Field Guide Page of Acceptance and Book of Admittance. And another chest near the pedestal will contain a collective item.

And there you go, mate. That is all I had for the ways to unlock the locked metal door near Headmaster’s Office in Hogwarts Legacy. Cheerio!
