Hogwarts Legacy Alohomora Spell: Unlock And Upgrade

While sneaking cannot be considered ethical in real life, Alohomora's Spell can make sneaking seem like a dream in Hogwart's Legacy!

Hogwarts Legacy has a plethora of spells that players can unlock and use for one reason or another. Amongst the sea of spells, players also have the Hogwarts Legacy Alohomora Spell, which requires quite a bit of effort from the player’s end to unlock. Players might need assistance in figuring out how to unlock it and where the upgrades are present.

Unlocking Alohomora

When it comes to getting your hands on the Alohomora spell, one thing players need to remember is that it is quite a bit of a tedious process to get your hands on it. Not only do players need to go through quite a few main missions, but the journey there can be quite daunting. 

  • Another thing that players need to keep in mind is that once they do manage to get their hands on the spell, they only gain access to the weakest version of it, meaning that they need to upgrade it further if they are to have a stronger version of the spell in their arsenal. 
  • The upgrades require statues that players need to get, and it is all completely progression-locked; therefore, it cannot be skipped over.

  • During this quest, you’ll meet Gladwin Moon, who stands against a wall.

  • The Caretaker’s quest is progression-locked, so you must complete previous quests leading up to it.
  • You’ll access the main quest after reaching the first trial and completing a map chamber quest.
  • Additionally, you need to unlock how to use talents before reaching this quest.
  • Gladwin will ask for your help in sneaking around during the quest to find two items.

  • You’ll initially learn the Alohomora Spell, but it starts at a low level and requires upgrades.

The Caretaker’s Lunar Lament Objectives

When it comes to the quest itself, it has a few objectives that players need to complete, which are as follows: 

  • One of the first things players need to do is to go ahead and interact with Gladwin Moon, whereby players can come across him whenever they are in the Reception Hall. 
  • After that, players recieve their next objective, which is to remove the moon from the statue, and the statue is described as a Demiguise statue, and players are to remove the moon from it. 
  • After that, the next thing that players are told to do is to go ahead and follow Gladwin, whereby whenever players start following him, and we get to our main destination, he teaches us the spell. 
  • Going forward, players are asked to use Alohomora to access the locked Faculty Tower door, through which players can learn a minigame
  • After that, players can attain the Demiguise moon that is present in the Prefect’s bathroom and Hospital Wing, and it is to be given back to Godiwn.
