Here's how you can solve the Slytherin's door puzzle in Hogwarts Legacy.
How To Open Slytherin Sanctum Door Locks In Hogwarts Legacy

The best moments in Hogwarts Legacy aren't when it's trying to recreate scenarios from the Harry Potter books and movies but when it delves into things that are not explored in the source material.

One such high point in Hogwarts Legacy is when you get to explore Salazar Slytherin's secret room. It's part of Sebastian Sallows' story arc where he and the main character are looking for Slytherin's Spellbook. 

As you would expect, entering Salazar Slytherin's secret passage isn't easy, and you must solve a simple yet tricky puzzle to gain access. If you're currently stuck there, fret not. Here's our guide explaining how to open Slytherin's door in Hogwarts Legacy.

REMINDER - Hogwarts Legacy was due to launch on PS4 and Xbox One on April 4, but now won't release until 5 May 2023.

How To Unlock Salazar Slytherin's Door Puzzle In Hogwarts Legacy

Outside Slytherin's door, you will notice two unlit braziers on the right corridor and one more on the opposite side of the door. The trick is to have all three braziers lit at the same time to gain entry to Salazar Slytherin's secret hideout. 

You will soon find out that you can't light them simultaneously since they are on different corridors. You can't light them individually since the fire goes out pretty quickly. You can, however, light two of them together and then march toward the other end to light the remaining one.

Lighting The Braziers

While you have a few fire-spewing magic spells, not all of them could work here. To light the two braziers simultaneously, cast Incendio between them.

As for the remaining one, use Confringo to shoot a long-ranged firey bolt to light it up from a distance. You can also cast Incendio on the lone brazier, but since it's a short-ranged spell, you're better off casting Confringo to save up a few seconds and prevent the risk of resetting other braziers. When all three braziers are lit, Slytherin's door will open up. 

And that's it! That concludes our guide on how to open Slytherin's door in Hogwarts Legacy.
