Given that the Hogwarts Legacy map is pretty big, traveling by foot is not a viable option as it will deplete your precious time. To deal with such situations, game developers have incorporated the iconic Broom, through which players can quickly travel from one point to another.
Broom in Hogwarts Legacy, however, is locked by default, meaning players have to follow a certain set of instructions to procure it. So without any further delay, here’s a comprehensive guide explaining everything about unlocking broom in the game.
Unlocking Broom in Hogwarts Legacy
The only way to get a broom in Hogwarts Legacy is by completing the “Flight Test” quest and then purchasing it by spending 600 Gold at Spintwitches Sporting Needs.
The Flying Class quest unlocks after completing the main story quest 'Jackdaw’s Rest.' As the name suggests, you'll receive a flying lesson from the one and only Madam Kogawa when undertaking the “Flight Test” quest.
After completing the tutorial, Spintwitches Sporting Needs, a shop located in Hogsmeade, will be unlocked in Hogwarts Legacy. At this point, fans will have the opportunity to meet the shop owner, Albie Weekes, and purchase brooms with various cosmetic designs for 600 Galleons. The brooms can also be upgraded to improve their flight capabilities.
Flying On Broom in Hogwarts Legacy
Flying with a broom in Hogwarts Legacy is simple: press Tab + 3 to bring up the broom in the PC version and use space to ascend and CTRL to descend. Whereas console players can use the right stick to control the ascent and descent by tilting it up and down, and tilting it left to right will adjust the camera view. To gain a speed boost, click the left mouse button.
However, it's worth noting that it will deplete the boost meter, which can be found in the bottom right corner of the screen. Fortunately, players can complete broom time trials throughout the open world in order to increase the meter level.
So there you have it. That's everything you need to know about unlocking Broom in Hogwarts Legacy.
