Hogwarts Legacy – All Ancient Magic Hotspots and How to Solve

Follow the Ancient Magic trail!

Your Ancient Magic is what makes your character unique in the world around Hogwarts. It is a powerful skill to use in battle that quickly takes down your opponents. However, you must fill up your Ancient Magic meter to use it efficiently. You can increase your Ancient Magic meter by locating Ancient Magic Hotspots around the world and collecting the traces. Here's where to find them all and how to solve them.

How to solve Ancient Magic Hotspots in Hogwarts Legacy

Ancient Magic Hotspots are spread around the world outside of Hogwarts, and just like in the main story missions, you can investigate them to reveal hidden traces.

In each location, there will be a spot where you can investigate. Follow the trail of Ancient Magic until the ground begins to glow and the Investigate option pops up on your screen. Press X/Square to interact with it.

Once you investigate, it will reveal three Ancient Magic orb traces around the area. Each area will be different, but the mission is essentially the same: find all three orbs to solve the Hotspot. All you have to do is walk into the trace to collect it. You can use Revelio to help you find them a bit more easily.

What do you get for completing Ancient Magic Hotspots in Hogwarts Legacy?

Collecting Ancient Magic Traces is one of your challenges. Completing these little milestones will allow you to receive rewards. These rewards will give additional capacity to your Ancient Magic Meter, meaning you will be able to use your Ancient Magic more before it runs out.

All Ancient Magic Hotspot Locations in Hogwarts Legacy

Ancient Magic Hotspots are spread all over the World Map. There are twenty of them in total. You can locate them by the torch-like icons on your map. Here are all of their locations:
