How to climb the battlements in Hogwarts Legacy's The High Keep

After meeting Natty at the castle and finding the gate locked, turn towards your right. There will be some scratched-up wooden boards that you can climb up by jumping towards the wall.

After you climb up, on your left you'll find a spinner that acts as a sort of lock. Use Depulso on the spinner to lift the small gate.

You'll find a wooden box inside. Use Accio and Depulso or Wingardium Leviosa if you've learned to shift the box outside the gate, then to your right until it is just underneath a wall with missing bricks. Before you use the box to climb up, don't forget to collect from the treasure chest hiding behind the wooden box's resting place. After you've collected the treasure, use the box to climb up the crumbling wall.

How to get inside the gatehouse and raise the main gate in Hogwarts Legacy's The High Keep

Once you've climbed up, walk around the gatehouse to the far side. You'll need to look through the window and cast Accio on the wooden box you see inside to pull it from a path you are about to take.

With the box out of your way, you can return to the other side of the gatehouse. Destroy these broken boards with Depulso.

Once inside, you'll find another spinner, but this one will not be as simple as the first. You'll need to cast Depulso on the spinner twice to fully raise the gate. Once it is raised, use Accio to pull down a wooden lock that the gate reveals to hold it open.

How to catch up to Natty in Hogwarts Legacy's The High Keep

Natty will help you get to the main keep, but unfortunately, you are separated at the front door. To catch back up to her and the Hippogriff you just spotted, climb up the scaffolding and wall, then cast Depulso on the wooden box you find in front of you. This will push it down to the lower level. Go down to that lower level to spot a gap in a staircase that you'll need to cross. Position the wooden box in that gap, then cast Levioso on the box to create a platform to cross the gap.

You'll be greeted by some poacher enemies here. Dispatch them in any way you choose. Nearby the spot where the Poacher duelist spawns is a level one locked door you can open. Go through and climb up the wall on your right to proceed. If you can unlock it, there will be a level two locked door you'll pass by on your left. Don't miss out on the treasure inside if you are able!

Continue up the tower, fight a few more enemies, and then proceed through the padlocked door with Alohomora. Climb up and up the stairs. Keep a look out for the alcove shown below. If you cast Depulso on the wooden pile shown, you'll find a chest behind it.

You'll reach Highwing and her friend at the top. Enjoy the cutscene and the ability to recreate the feeling of skimming the surface of the Black Lake on a Hippogriff. After completing this quest, flying mounts will be permanently unlocked.

How to get all chests during The High Keep quest in Hogwarts Legacy

There are only three points during this quest to locate the additional treasure. The first is the treasure chest hidden behind the wooden box at the start of the quest, the treasure behind the level-two locked door, and the treasure hidden behind the wood pile at the end of the quest. If you need to return later for the level two locked door, there is a handy Floo Flame location you should have unlocked when you first met Natty at the castle entrance.
