Hogwarts Legacy: Merlin Trials Solutions

Hogwarts Legacy Merlin Trials

The Merlin Trials in Hogwarts Legacy are small spell challenges that you will find throughout the game. These puzzles are important since they reward you with extra gear space once you have completed them. This means that you can carry more gear that you can equip or sell. In this Hogwarts Legacy guide, I cover how you can complete the Merlin Trials.

How To Unlock Merlin Trials In Hogwarts Legacy

You will first unlock the Merlin Trials during the mission called Trials of Merlin after you meet Natty near Lower Hogsfield. You will go through a tutorial that explains the basics of the challenge and how you can solve the puzzle. There are a lot of different types of Merlin Trials and each one requires a specific spell to solve. So while the basics are the same, they are unique in their own way.

There are plenty of Merlin Trials in Hogwarts Legacy and you can easily find them on the map. Look for the white feather symbol and you can head to one. You will need to bring Mallowseet offerings if you want to take on these challenges one after the other. I have covered how you can get some below.

How To Get Mallowsweet In Hogwarts Legacy

You can buy Mallowsweet from the Magic Neep in Hogsmeade. We recommend buying the seeds and growing them in the Greenhouse planter early on. You can also wait until you unlock the Room of Requirement to start a Mallowsweet farm with infinite plant tables. You get five every time you harvest Mallowsweet from a plant table in the Room of Requirement.
