Beasts in Hogwarts Legacy covers all the fantastical creatures players will be able to find throughout the Wizarding World. Players can befriend many of these creatures and send them to their Vivarium, to tend and care for them. If done properly, some Beasts may yield Ingredients or Resources to be used for Crafting by the players. There are a total of 13 Beasts to be found and rescued in Hogwarts Legacy 

This page is exclusive to the creatures you can take to your Vivarium. Please refer to the Flying Mounts page if you want to see how to acquire them for transportation.

Can Beasts have names?

Yes, you can rename your Beasts at the Vivarium. Note that this has no confirmed implication on the behavior or any other bonus to the renamed Magical Beast. It only serves as another customization layer for players to have an experience as unique and personal as possible while enjoying the Wizarding World in Hogwarts Legacy

How do I rescue Beasts in Hogwarts Legacy?

In order to begin rescuing Beasts, players must first progress through the Main Quests up to the completion of The Elf, the Nab-Sack, and the Loom, a quest which grants them the use of the Nab-Sack as well as serving as a tutorial on Beast rescuing. 

The Nab-Sack is a magically charmed bag that can vacuum up Beasts and store them until the player can return them to their Vivarium. Beasts can be found out in the wild at the various Beast Dens scattered throughout the Wizarding World. These dens can be identified by the claw icon beast den icon hogwarts legacy fextralife wiki guide on the Map and each den houses a specific type of Beast.

Some Beasts can be rescued with a simple conjuring of the Nab-Sack. However, some of the more elusive ones may require the use of Levioso or other such spells to temporarily immobilize the creatures.

Where do I find my Vivarium?

The Vivarium can be found in The Room of Requirement which itself is unlocked during The Room of Requirement (Quest). However, similar to rescuing Beasts, players must progress through the Main Quests to complete The Elf, the Nab-Sack, and the Loom in order to gain access to the Vivarium.
