While exploring the wizarding world of Hogwarts Legacy, you'll cross paths with various magical beasts out in the wild. Similar to the concept of Shiny Pokémon, Hogwarts Legacy features Shiny Beasts, and players may be curious about how to locate one for their own collection. Unfortunately, since they are rare critters, finding them is not easy, as their spawn rate is relatively low. But worry not, as we have a comprehensive guide for finding Shiny Beasts in Hogwarts Legacy.
How To Catch Shiny Beast in Hogwarts Legacy
To catch Shiny Beasts in the game, you must first complete the required class. During the Beast Class quest, Poppy Sweeting will teach you the whole process of taming beasts by introducing you to two magical creatures, Puffskeins and Kneazles. Additionally, she provides you with the Beast Petting Brush and Beast Feed, essential to tame wild Beasts.
After completing this quest, you will receive "The Elf, the Nab-Sack, and the Loom," where Deek the Elf will show you how to use the Nab-Sack to rescue magical creatures from poachers. Upon returning to Deek in the Room of Requirement, you will gain access to the Vivarium. It's a place where you can keep your rescued magical beasts.
After fulfilling these prerequisites, head out in the wild, preferably in the forest, where you are more likely to come across wild creatures. However, it's worth noting that there's no fixed location where you can find and catch Shiny Beast. Therefore, you'll need to catch as many animals as possible.
Once the Viviarium is full of animals, you can determine if you have caught a Shiny creature by checking the "Beasts" section in the inventory. To do this, select any creature, and if it is a different color and has a star symbol next to its name, then it is indeed a Shiny Beast.
However, it's worth noting that you can't store countless creatures in the Vivarium. You must free up some storage by selling them at the Brood and Peck shop in Hogsmeade or setting them free to bring the new ones.
So there you have it. That's everything you need to know about catching Shiny Beasts in Hogwarts Legacy. Before leaving, please take a moment to peruse our spellbinding review of Hogwarts Legacy.
