Whether you’re a fan of the Quidditch game from Harry Potter or looking for easier ways to get around the castle, one of the most anticipated parts of Hogwarts Legacy by most players is when they get their broom.
Most fans can’t wait to start flying on their broom and constantly wonder, ‘When do you get a broom in Hogwarts Legacy?’ Luckily, this guide answers that question for you. Keep reading to find out.
When Do You Get a Broom in Hogwarts Legacy?
A broom is a vital tool in Hogwart’s Legacy. It makes it easy to fly around Hogwarts and gives players a thrill as they soar the skies over the vast countryside.
However, you only get a broom after you complete the main story quest, ‘Jackdaw’s Rest.’ This is during your second day at Hogwarts, and right after, you’ll receive the quest ‘Flying Class.’
This quest will take you to the flying class lawn in the Bell Tower Wings of Hogwarts. While there, you’ll get a flying lesson from Madam Kogawa and a tour of the castle by air if you accept Everett Clopton’s offer. However, accepting this offer gets some points deducted from your house, but we promise the view is entirely worth it.
Where to Buy a Broom in Hogwarts Legacy
Now that you have the answer to the question, ‘When do you get a broom in Hogwarts Legacy?’ you’re probably wondering where you can get a broom.
Once you complete your flying lessons, you can get your first broom. All you have to do is go to Hogsmeade and find Sprintwitches Sporting Needs.
Once you arrive at the shop, meet the shopkeeper, Albie Weekes, and he’ll explain to you that the shop had been shut until recently when it reopened. This explains why you couldn’t get a broomstick before. However, you’re here now and can buy your first broomstick.
The brooms in Hogwarts Legacy aren’t expensive, and you can pay 600 coins for your first broom. However, there are varieties available from vendors outside Hogsmeade. Although the other options are fancier, they’re also quite expensive. To stock up on cash, loot chests, bags, and pots while exploring the world. You can also sell unwanted gear to vendors to get some coins.
How to Use Your Broom in Hogwarts Legacy
While you now have a broomstick, flying it is more complicated. Players have to complete the Fight Test quest before they can start flying with their broom.
To complete this task, head back to the school after purchasing the broom and then go to the Quidditch pitch to speak to Imelda Rayes. Right after the conversation, she’ll challenge you to beat her high score in a race around the castle.
This agility trial’ll require players to fly through yellow speed bubbles that’ll make them go faster while swooping through the hoops as quickly as possible.
If you miss any hoop, some seconds will be added to your time as a penalty. Although the first Flight Test mission isn’t too difficult, it gets trickier with further attempts.
After the mission, you can fly whenever you’re outside by using L1 to bring up your gear menu and pressing the Circle or B to jump on the broom.
When you’re in areas where you can’t use your broom, it’s easy to tell by the icon of a flying creature with a red strike through it. When you see this, all you need to do is head further outdoors, and when the icon disappears, you can use your broom.
Getting a broom in Hogwarts Legacy means the fun has fully begun. Players can use the broom when going on quests and exploring the skies above the wizarding world.
