  • Players can hear Madam Kogawa’s line play out, whereby she addresses everyone in her vicinity and says that everyone in this area needs to go ahead and grab a broom. Then they can get started. 

After that, a cutscene ends up playing out, whereby there are a total of 11-12 people who are standing in a line, and there are six people who are in one line and five who are standing across from the six people, and all of them have a broom that is present beside them. 

  • The instructor walks in the middle of the people and explains everything, and players need to complete the full quest. 
  • Once the quest has been completed, they can see a symbol pop up on their screen, which showcases that the “quest complete” and the “Flying Class” are written below it.

  • When they open up the map, towards the left end of the screen, players can see a box that opens up that showcases the Hogsmeade area. Right below the area name, it displays the text that Hogsmeade is perhaps the only all-wizarding village that is present in all of Britain

  • Below that, players can also see the quests that are made available to them, such as the flight test, Ghost of Our love, and a few more quests, and players can even set down a waypoint if they feel like it. 

While being in the area, players need to make their way over to a shop called the “Spintwitches Sporting Needs,” which is described to be a sporting goods shop that can sell a few options of brooms that players can buy. 

  • If players zoom into the map even more, they can look at the different buildings that are present besides the sporting needs. There is a major building that is present infront of the sporting needs, while there are a few buildings that surround the sporting shop. 

Identifying The Shop 

To identify the shop, players can look for key features:

  • The building has two opposing windows with 16 glass panels, asymmetrically placed, and a small lamp/item to the left where the left window curves in.
  • Below the glass panels is a pastel green design with green circles and central lines that match the windows’ curve.
  • The left and right windows curve inwards, leading to a wooden door with nine glass panels in the middle.
  • Colorful triangular banners hang above the door, meeting at the building’s center before curving towards the ends.
  • The building continues upwards in a typical style with a triangular rooftop.

Inside the shop, you’ll find various decorative items like barrels, tables, and smaller objects. Albie Weekes welcomes you upon entry, and a screen shows an enlarged view of him. On the left, you’ll see the “Spintwitches sporting needs” logo and the available brooms for purchase.

One of the first available brooms is the Ember Dash Broom, priced at 600 coins, suitable for those with a fiery temperament. To purchase it, simply press the X button on your controller.

After buying the broom, Albie Weekes assures you that you’ll be thrilled when you use it, keeping his promise to you.

After leaving the shopping screen, Albie Weekes addresses you again, acknowledging that while any broom is an improvement from the practice broom given in Kogawa’s Class, they all have their limitations.

He suggests that if you’re interested in brooms, you might want enhancements. If you agree, he praises your choice and explains that broom performance tends to falter at higher altitudes. He offers enchantments and upgrades to empower your broom.

To get these upgrades applied, you need to test your broom’s flight so Albie can perfect the enhancements. He mentions someone using abandoned broom course areas for testing, encouraging you to compete for the best time and report back.

You have four options to respond, including “Sounds worth a try, Mr. Weekes,” “How did your passion for brooms begin,” “why am I the right person for this,” and “You took Madam Kogawa’s class?” If you agree, Albie thanks you and assures it will be worth your while, with potential special prices.

He directs you to the Quidditch Pitch, where you’ll find someone who will guide you on what to do next.

How To Use The Broom In Hogwarts Legacy 

While being from the item wheel, players can go ahead and select the broom from the item wheel, and while being on a Playstation, players can go ahead and click on L1 and Circle, and on an Xbox, they can click on Lb and B together.
