After talking to Nellie Oggspire, you can head into the Astronomy Tower to find the first Daedalian key in the game. The key will lead you all the way up into the Astronomy Tower, so be ready to climb a bunch of stairs. After reaching the Astronomy room, you’ll reach the cabinet, which will reveal the first House Token in Hogwarts Legacy.

For the second Daedalian key, head to the Bell Tower. You can quickly use the Floo Flames fast-travel to reach the Bell Tower Courtyard. Once here, take the staircase to the south. Go straight into the door at the end of the staircase to end up in another hall.

Here you will, yet again, need to climb up all the stairs by following the Daedalian Key. You will eventually reach the secret cabinet at the top of the tower.

Defence Against The Dark Arts Tower

The third Daedalian key is found inside the Defence Against the Dark Arts Tower. You can easily use the Floo Flames to get there quickly. Once there, head down by following the multiple staircases until you reach the Rhinoceros skeleton.

Here, you’ll encounter the Daedalian Key, which will then lead you to the upper floor (towards the direction where the skeleton is facing). On the upper floor, just go straight until you’ll see the secret cabinet on the right side.

The next Daedalian Key location that you can go to is outside the Great Hall in Hogwarts Legacy. To be precise, you’ll find the tiny key flying around staircases that lead into the Great Hall from the Entrance Hall. Once you find the key, it will fly down the staircases in Entrance Hall (away from the Great Hall) and reach the secret cabinet next to the Main Entrance door.

Quad Courtyard

There is another Daedalian key that you can find close to the Great Hall. From the Great Hall Floo Flames spot, take the west exit and go down the staircase on the right. ]
  1. Eventually, you will notice the Leviosa statue; this is where you’ll also hear or preferably see the Daedalian Key.
  2. Start following it as it goes down a few staircases and then an archway, eventually leading you to another secret cabinet close to the Defence Against the Dark Arts Tower.

Great Hall

Before you move on, there is another Key that you can chase down inside the Great Hall. Simply head straight inside the Great Hall and then head behind the pillar that has the Slytherin snake on it.

Here, you’ll find the Daedalian key, which will then lead you to one of the corners of the Great Hall, close to its entrance (next to the Floo Flames point), and up the stairs. You’ll see the secret cabinet at once while you’re climbing this set of stairs inside the Great Hall.

Grand Staircase

You can also find a Daedalian key in the Grand Staircase in Hogwarts Legacy. You can use the Floo Flames fast travel point to the Grand Staircase Tower and then head down the magical staircase.

  1. While you’re heading down, you’ll ultimately run into the key around the third level of the staircase.
  2. However, you do not need to stop, as the Key will take you even further down the Grand Staircase.
  3. After a bit of running, you will eventually exit the Grand Staircase and reach another secret cabinet close to the Lower Grand Staircase Floo Flames point.

The Map Chamber (Dungeons)

Two of the Daedalian Keys are found in the secret sections of Hogwarts. You can reveal them by pressing the “Secret Rooms” on the map, which will also reveal the Room of Requirement (if you’ve unlocked it by this point). Nonetheless, choose the Map Chamber Floo Flames point to fast-travel to the dungeons of Hogwarts.

  1. If you fast-travel to the Dungeons, then take the stairs upwards and go through the Level 2 locked door.
  2. However, if you do not have access to the Map Chamber fast travel point yet, then you can also head down to the Dungeons, where the Dragon statue is.
  3. Once there, head towards the locked door and go through the alleyway.
  4. Here, you’ll find the first Daedalian key in the Dungeons.
  5. The Daedalian key will take you back toward the locked door, although it will turn left rather than going up the stairs.
  6. Here, you will finally find the secret cabinet to get another House Token.

The Map Chamber (Near Dragon Statue)

From the same alleyway where you found the earlier Dungeon Daedalian key, head north and turn left at the end to find the Dragon Statue. The Daedalian Key can be spotted right beside the Dragon Statue. Get close to it and then initiate the chase. During its flight, the key will lead you up the stairways next to the statue. On the 2nd floor, you’ll find the secret cabinet right in front of you.

Faculty Tower (First Key)

Before I mention the locations of the final three Daedalian Keys, it is worth knowing that you can only access them if you have unlocked the Alohomora spell. You can unlock the spell after completing “The Caretaker’s Lunar Lamentquest in Hogwarts Legacy. 

  1. Once you have Alohomora, use the Floo Flames fast-travel to get to the Faculty Tower.
  2. From the Floo Flames point, head south until you go through an arched doorway, and then turn right to find the locked door.
  3. This locked door can be opened up by the Alohomora Spell.
  4. After going through the locked door, run straight ahead toward the staircase and reach the second floor.

You will find the Daedalian Key on the second floor, which will lead you back down. The Secret cabinet can be spotted right next to the staircase on the lower level (where the locked door was.)

Faculty Tower (Second Key)

Go through the same locked door that you encountered while finding the previous Daedalian Key in Faculty Tower. Head upwards through the staircase, which is right in front of the locked door.

  1. Pass by the floor where you found the first Faculty Tower key.
  2. Go up a few floors until you reach the spiral staircase.
  3. After the first spiral stairway ends on a new floor, turn south to head towards the Clock Tower.
  4. You will spot the Daedalian key inside the hallway that leads toward the Clock Tower.

The Daedalian Key will take you back toward the Spiral staircase that you used to come upstairs. The secret cabinet is right beside the spiral staircase on the same floor.

Clock Tower

For the final Daedalian Key location in Hogwarts Legacy, use the Floo Flames fast travel ability to reach the Clock Tower Courtyard. After you reach the courtyard, go southwards until you reach another locked door right next to the archway. Use the Alohomora spell to unlock the door. 

  1. After going through the door, use the staircase to go up.
  2. After the staircase comes to an end, you’ll reach the Clock Tower, and you’ll instantly notice the final Daedalian Key along the path.
  3. Follow the Daedalian Key by using the staircase to go even more up.
  4. Eventually, you’ll reach the next floor in the Clock Tower.
  5. On this floor, turn northwest to find the last secret cabinet, which will give you the 16th House Token.

How To Open The House Chest In Hogwarts Legacy?

After chasing down 16 different Daedalian Keys inside Hogwarts, you will acquire the House Tokens for your relevant house. Just like the 16 Keys, by the end of this quest, you will have 16 House Tokens in your inventory. Using these House tokens, you will be able to open the House Chest inside your house’s common room inside Hogwarts.

After slotting in the 16 Tokens inside the House Chest inside the common room, players will get the following rewards based on their house in Hogwarts Legacy.

  • Gryffindor Relic House Uniform.
  • Ravenclaw Relic House Uniform.
  • Slytherin Relic House Uniform.
  • Hufflepuff Relic House Uniform.

After acquiring the Relic House Uniform, open up your Field Guide and head to the “Gear” tab in the game. In the gear menu, pick the “Cloaks and Robes” option; here, you can search the “Collections” tab to find the Relic House Uniform to equip it.

Finally, head to the Transfiguration Courtyard to meet with Nellie and complete “The Daedalian Keys” side quest. Upon completion, you will get around 180 EXP.

Here you go! Now you know everything about the Daedalian Keys, including their locations in Hogwarts Legacy. The Keys are a collectible that you can acquire in the game; the puzzle part where you slap the key into the lock is oddly satisfying for many players, including us. All in all, after finding all of these keys, you also get to keep a sweet Relic Uniform of your house as a reward. 

Speaking of collectibles in Hogwarts Legacy, make sure you also know the locations of the Demiguise statues. If you’ve just started your magical journey, then make sure you’re up to terms with our Beginners Guide. There are tons to explore in the world of Hogwarts Legacy; players can also do so by using the Broom. Apart from that, you can also learn all sorts of Spells such as Incendio, Flipendo, Bombarda, Descendo, and even the Unforgivable Curses.
