    There's a scene in the 6th book where Harry meets professor Trelawney near the Room of Requirement, where he learns that she has been using the room to hide bottles of sherry. I think the bottles in the vase are a reference to that.

      Yeah, Dobby being sober would just vanish Winky's bottles. Trelawney being drunk would try to "hide" them haha.

    It’s 100% a reference to when Trelawney tries to hide her sherry bottles in the room of requirement in book six. She ends up stuffing them in a vase near the room.

    I read the books again before the game came out and when I got to that mission, I started looking for the vanishing cabinet and the weird bust on top of the cabinet that Harry hides the potions book in. I found the vanishing cabinet!

    When you use transformation on pots and vases in dungeons, the coin sacks happen a lot.

  • OB Krishna
    OB Krishna 5 months ago +16

    theres a chest that can only be unlocked by using the transform spell on a vase, which turns it into a giant chess piece, and must be placed on a specific square. after unlocking the door that holds the chest, the piece can be turned back into a vase.

    I love how the game brings in the Easter eggs even though this is a prequel of the Harry Potter series but they've done a very good job and I've only seen 2 Easter eggs! And I can't wait to see all the other ones And I'm glad I didn't miss the vanishing cabinet one, I'm not there yet

    There is a second Snape Jack in the box in the faculty tower that doesn't go back in the box. I found it sitting on a shelf right after I got Alohomora and was searching for the two Demiguise in that area for the quest.
    Edit: I see you actually show that one at 4:50

    • RetroRaconteur

    The gear-wearing interaction one. I thought that if I wore the Demiguise mask and stand in front of Gladwin Moon, he’d act scared or yelp or something since he is afraid of them.
    Nope: nothing that cool happens.
    But I do really love the Werewolf Saga Tapestries secret. For me, it is a nod to Remus Lupin and his experience with turning into a werewolf as the story (when you cast lumos) seems to be more about the anxiety of the transformation than the transformation itself. I keep coming back to that secret room and observing it. Thinking about how clever the creators were to use ‘the light of the moon’ to expose the whole story rather than revelio.
    Without even meeting the devs of Avalanche and Portkey Games I can already tell they’re very passionate fans of the Harry Potter/Wizarding World franchise themselves. It just goes to show you the huge difference in the quality delivered when the devs are fans as well as business people

    • RetroRaconteur
      RetroRaconteur  6 months ago +3

      Oh man, I had been meaning to try the one with Gladwin and the moon mask! That's disappointing he doesn't really react to it.

    • Emma Wilson
      Emma Wilson 6 months ago +4

      @RetroRaconteur right?! It threw me for a loop. I thought the whole point of getting that mask (my final achievement to reach 100%) was for that very purpose. To scare Gladwin.
      I was well put out when it did nothing. 😕

    • Kate 羊清菡
      Kate 羊清菡 6 months ago +2

      I got the same feeling about them being passionate about the Harry Potter franchise - clearly the devs enjoyed working on this project and brought something they have long loved to reality. There are some notable issues with the game which I think are more an issue of running out of time and prioritisation (although I can't understand why they left sitting down out!) but the beautiful castle itself and all these little quirky things and various references to the stories show, to me, that the people who were involved in making them were fans themselves.
      The castle itself, for example, has had a lot of research into putting it together. They've combined the castle from the movies and the books (because sometimes the movie castle didn't always add up with what the books said). The creators of the movie castle, I think, did a fabulous job bringing various ancient buildings from around the UK together and it really captured my imagination. The castle is one of my favourite things about the movies, as the castle of my imagination before the movies came out was a bit bland (and I'd never seen a real life castle to base it on). But the book castle had some key differences and I would always find a medium between the two when visualising it while reading the books.
      The Hogwarts Legacy version of the castle really captures the beauty of the movie castle, while adding in bits and pieces from the books and finding that medium when they don't agree, and the layout of the castle is actually a really spot on combination in my opinion. I've spent a fair while imagining the castle myself from information in the books as well as the models used in the movies and various maps (including what I could find of the movie Maurauder's Map) and most of the classrooms and all of the common rooms are where I imagined they'd be! (except for the Slytherin dungeon, which I imagined to be beneath the tower and parts of the wings on either side of the corner of the quad which is opposite to the Ravenclaw tower - between the corners that contain the Gryffindor Tower and the Grand Staircase tower, with the Hufflepuff Basement being below the Great Hall and Grand Staircase Tower, meaning that each house would have its own corner of the quad - but it's actually below the wings between the Grand Staircase Tower and the Ravenclaw Tower in the game). They've also done exactly what I did in my imagination with the Entrance Hall. The Entrance Hall is clearly mentioned numerous times in the books, and was included in the first two movies, but was replaced by a courtyard in the subsequent movies. So in my imagination, I put the Entrance Hall from the first two movies in between the corridor that leads to the Staircase/Great Hall and the courtyard in the same orientation as the game.
      The game devs that made the castle did an even better job than I'd imagined, and everything has had a lot of thought as to its placement. Which, to me, shows a lot of passion.
      I've had a great deal of fun exploring this game, seeing Hogwarts brought to life so beautifully.

    • Emma Wilson
      Emma Wilson 6 months ago +2

      @Kate 羊清菡 honestly they deserve so much praise and credit for the way they constructed and assembled the castle alone. For real: I mean I was exploring around the Headmaster’s quarters yesterday, picking up what field guide pages and collection chests I had left in the Grand Staircase Tower. And I was floored at the amount of detail they put in just walking through the halls to get to it. That’s before I actually entered the office. By the way, if you go back after the main campaign is finished, you can actually be in there while Professor Black is and he makes a comment about how you didn’t run away from the final battle and he says “well done, I suppose”, which is consistent with his characterisation for being an asshole. But he doesn’t ask why you’re in his study or try to shot you out or anything. It’s really quite funny.
      They’ve done an incredible job and I only hope those on the previous gen consoles get to experience Hogwarts Legacy like we can.

    • Kate 羊清菡
      Kate 羊清菡 6 months ago +1

      @Emma Wilson Totally agree with you! I really like how the NPCs will often say something that depends on certain conditions to be met. Like the Fat Lady says something about "and I was having such a nice dream! *SNORE*" if you go through the portrait hole at night. And a lot of the random NPC dialogue is pretty funny too, poking fun at something about the world or the game itself.

  • Fawzy Nahwi

    I think professor Hecat used a time turner to go back too far in time that when she got back she aged the same years. I think thats how Time turners are explained in the books and its why Rowling decided to destroy them all in later books

  • Lucy Lovely

    Regarding the Newspaper articles, you will also find proof of the stories in various vaults and caves, etc... For example, you will find a dead guy next to an open cage with a letter talking about the Dricken.

    You can use the transformation spell on all targetable pots, crates, barrels etc. Barrels & large crates only make pumpkins. All others change to animals (chicken, rabbit, mice, frogs) or coins. Sometimes if you change a few close together quickly you'll get higher chance of coins. Sometimes. All the pots you kick/break could have been a few coins. About 50 is highest i've seen from one pouch and as little as 3. Rabbits are bad about breaking pots next to them..

    Great video as always! I have played for a long time and still didn't know some of these secrets!
    About the basilisk breeder, I'm pretty sure you can also find one dead in one of the caves with a bunch of chickens and a note from the ministry warning him about not having toads around. I'm not sure if it's the same one from the newspaper but I found it quite amusing to find him after reading the news in Hogmeade.

    • RetroRaconteur
      RetroRaconteur  6 months ago +2

      Yes! I found that too and almost tried to work it into the video when I talked about the newspaper section.

      I also thought it might be a nod to newt who said his biggest achievement was the outlawing of interbreeding different magical species. Since this is before newt’s time magical beasts are still being bred to disastrous results though it is frowned upon

  • The Moon Man
    The Moon Man 3 months ago +2

    In the 6th book where harry meets Trelawny near the room of requirment and then harry learns that she used the room to hide sherry's. That's a reference to the vase with butterbeers

  • NigiVlogs
    NigiVlogs 6 months ago +63

    6:30 I believe it isn't a nod to Dobby, it's the 6th book and Professor Trelawney trying to hide bottles of sherry in the Room of Requirements but the Malfoy throws her out

    • NigiVlogs
      NigiVlogs 6 months ago +7

      On the other hand, Dobby does mention in book 5 that he used the Room of Requirements to hide Winky while she was drunk

    I just finished the main story, and need to do all the side stuff yet. I didn't even know you could get into the kitchen. And it's by tickling the pear in the painting. That's so cool. The developers really did their homework for this game. I have quite a bit to go before taking my O.W.L.S. I tried to find the entrance to the chamber of secrets and thought I did until seeing this video and realizing it was the wrong bathroom. Is there no way to open it? Even if you're a Slytherin? Loved the video! Got a sub from me.😃👍

    • RetroRaconteur
      RetroRaconteur  5 months ago +1

    So I found something strange and have no clue what it is. In front of the windows in the Slytherin common room at night I used Lumos, besides the fish seemingly reacting to it, a small flickering light appeared in the distance underwater. It remained there even after I stopped using Lumos. I took screenshots to be sure. Does anyone know what it could be?

    The Daily Prophet story on the guy trying to make a basilisk ties in to another easter egg hidden in the world.
    Also, like the tapestry, there is the medusa picture that changes when you interact with it.
    @RetroRaconteur My question though is, there is a pile of furs at a ruin that glows blue when revelio is used, but I can't find an interaction with it. Anyone else notice this, or figure it out?

    You don't even have to look up the unicorn-thing in fantastic beasts. Hagrid teaches this to his class after Grubbly-Plank took over his class for a brief period. He has Baby unicorns there and tells the class that Babys are pure golden and are more open to humans and "don't mind boys so much".

    Ive found a secret. This might seem like a no brainer but its an extra detail added to the game so... The tables in the kitchens have different kinds of food on them depending on the time of day and no food with piles of plates off to the sides during the night.

    My other thought, besides with Trelawny, was perhaps the bottles reference the bottles Fred and George snuck in to celebrate winning a quidditch match

    It is said in the books that Unicorns are born gold and become white as they grow. We learn this when professor Grubly-Plank substitutes for Hagrid in the Care of Magical Creatures class. In the game however, they have shiny versions of all of the creatures and the Shiny unicorns are gold even as adults.

    I have yet to hear anyone discovering this. Unless its a nod to Sirius Black escaping Azkaban by transforming into a dog, I can't think of another reason for what I saw. When traveling to Azkaban, one cell on the left was holding a baby mooncalf. I barely noticed it but I was sure that's what I saw when taking a closer look.

    There are some pedestals with dragons that you set on fire, I think they are located in iconic places of the movies or books. For example there is one where Snape dies and another in the astronomy tower where Harry sees how Dumbedlor dies. Is it a coincidence? What does it refer to?

    Safe to say, I haven't found any of these but I *have* seen the dragon. Issue was, I was talking to someone in-game at the point it flew by, so I don't think it counted. Did you find the Snitch in the Room, though? I know it appears a brief second as your character comments on it, and I never got into the same little shut-in it was hiding in after, but you can see it over the wall.
    That news article sheds light on Lupin's reasoning for giving Harry chocolate after the Dementor attack in 'Prisoner'. Also never connected that it was the Forbidden Forest they ran around in in that movie, but of course it had to be, though that iconic scene was the first thing I wondered about when seeing the lake in-game.
    The Butterbeer bottles in the vase is interesting, considering no house-elves that we know of from the books are in the game.
    There's a decapitated statue in a secret room that's holding its own head. When you interact with it, it turns you to stone.
    Never tried anything other than my underwear to trigger unique dialogues, though I know there are pajama outfits as well.

    I found an Easter egg related to an old German fairy tale. Namely the fairy tale Rumpelstiltskin. At the castle gate, where Mr. Moon lives, there are also stables for the Thestrals. Above the stables is a locked room and in the room is a spinning wheel and several baskets full of straw.
    For those who don't know this fairy tale, although it is quite well known, a short summary: Once upon a time there was a miller who wanted his daughter to marry the king. So he lied to the king, claiming that his daughter had the gift of spinning straw into gold. The king wanted to convince himself of this and locked the girl in a room filled with straw and a spinning wheel. Desperate, the girl didn't know what to do and started crying. Suddenly a little man appeared and offered his help, but also made demands. On the first night Rumpelstiltskin demanded her necklace, on the second night her ring. And on the third night he demanded her firstborn child, because if she could spin straw into gold again that night, the king wanted to take her as his wife. She agreed. And when the first child was born, Rumpelstiltskin came and wanted to take it with him. The girl (now the queen) could not give up the child and cried. Rumpelstiltskin softened and offered her that if she managed to guess his name in just 3 days, she could keep the child. Long story short: By chance she heard the name, called it on the 3rd day, Rumpelstiltskin got angry and tore himself up in anger. The End.

    On the cloths. I like dressing my characters in PJs for the nighttime quests in Hogwarts. But on my 2nd playthrough i didnt loot them FOREVER. So i made the appearance of my outfit "invisible" which looks like an Edwardian shift and pants, looks like fancy nightwear. I forgot to turn it off in daytime and someone laughed at me at said "nice undies."

      You can see the words “butterbeer” on them though. Could still be a nod to Trelawney, but the bottles are definitely butterbeer.

      @RetroRaconteur I didn't see the label, those are huge bottles for butterbeer though, even had the classic wine bottle shape. Maybe it is meant to reference both scenes in one easter egg.

    I ran into a problem today when I was playing. I went with Fig to a tower for my first "trial" and we're both invisible and Fig tells me to sneak up on a troll and use Petrificus Totalus on him...except I hadn't learned it yet. It doesn't show up in any of my lists of spells. I googled it and it was supposed to be learned ages ago but it didn't happen for me. Great...

    • Bowtie Artist

      It isn't a "regular" or "equip-able" spell. Its the same type as Protego, Stupefy and Alohomora. It doesn't show up in your list of spells because of that reason.
      When you sneak up and use it, it's like sneaking up to someone in a stealth-feature game like Assassin's Creed or Hitman. You have to walk up and be VERY close to the enemy FROM BEHIND, and it will show a button prompt. Fun fact that might help you down the line, it even works on Spiders.

    Secret 1 (The Vanishing Cabinet) is why the Floo system in Hogwarts Legacy doesn't make any sense. From a video game point of view, I understand the need for a "fast travel" system, but the developers should have thought of another way. I can't provide such a solution, but then again, I'm not a gave developer...

    • Bowtie Artist
      Bowtie Artist 6 months ago +1

      In Chapter 14 of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Snape had used Floo Powder down in his office to summon Lupin from the DADA office. And Chapter 17 of Order of the Phoenix had Umbridge's hand grasping out in the fireplace for Sirius's Head, showing the fireplaces were connected (and also being watched). Honestly Floo being used for transportation within and around the school was already an established part of the lore.
      And although transportation throughout Hogwarts was a thing, the only inconsistency in Hogwarts Legacy isn't even actually an inconsistency when you think about the timeline. The fact you can use the Floo Network to travel IN and OUT of Hogwarts makes more sense back in ye olden days of Hogwarts with less threats. The protective charms of Hogwarts were strengthened by future headmasters who strongly resisted the concept of using Floo as a route into the school (as an example, maybe, for students who couldn't make the train or those who wanted to return after holidays without going to the station?) for fear of the security of the castle being breached.
      REAL WORLD history puts the first locomotive in England around 1820s, and King's Cross Station being opened in 1850s.
      With the game being in late 1800s, the timeline matches up to the idea by the Ministry of a train being used as a more secure means of transport for students, which is after portkeys were heavily unsuccessful (a combination of a third of students failing to arrive every year and the Hospital Wing being filled within the first few days due to the sick feeling many would feel after usage). Floo powder was probably then regulated not long after for Hogwarts after more charms being put in place to make the school more secure, and most likely was usable only by faculty or faculty permission for emergencies from there on, which would explain why pretty much nothing was mentioned of it in the books during Harry's story.
      All in all, one nerd's extremely overdone weigh-in on your comment, and a response of "simply put, the Floo System might have been the closest thing that COULD have worked for Fast Travel with how deep they're keeping to established lore, with all other means of transport considered, and if everything I said above was considered by developers, it might also be a deeply woven Easter Egg to spark a conversation just like this one."
      (also Vanishing Cabinets only worked as a pair. Use of Vanishing Cabinets as fast travel would never be overlooked by fans and would instead be judged as an oversight on the developers part, as you can't just transport from one Vanishing Cabinet to any one that you wanted, it was a bridge from one cabinet to a sister cabinet.)

    my burning question is, HOW DO YOU OPEN THE SHUT DOWN SHOP DOOR in hogsmead.
    theres a boarded up shop, where if you use "revealio" itll show blue glowing boards over the door, as ifd they can be moved or burned.
    however, no spell seems to do anything to it.

Any thoughts?

      not quite right. Professor Grubbly-Plank taught the students that fully grown unicorns "prefer the women's touch" but it was Hagrid who taught them about the foals: they are gold and turn silver when they are growing up, starting at 2 and turn fully white when 7. And as long as they are foals, they don't mind being touched by boys.
      Im a little disappointed though they put a horn on the unicorn foals sine its stated explicitly that their horns grow when they are around 3 or 4 y/o
