Lacewing Flies are an important ingredient (insect) in Hogwarts Legacy as it is required in several recipes to get some of the most powerful potions in the game. There are many ways through which you can obtain the Lacewing Flies, but do note that opting for the easiest method isn’t always the most suitable one.
How to Get the Lacewing Flies
The Lacewing Flies are usually available at most places, but you must look for the right places if you want to use them earlier in the game.
When you have gained the Lacewing Flies, you just have to take the first potions class. This will aid you in the unlocking room of requirement or classrooms so you can even brew your ingredients. There are several methods to obtain the items but you will be briefed about both the easiest and the hard way to get them.
Buy the Lacewing Flies
You must visit Hogsmeade to the J.J. Pippin’s Potions shop, where you can just buy five bottles of the item for a cost of 100 Galleons (Golden Coins). You can also obtain other items like horklump juice or other items from the store. You can find the exact location of the store if you travel towards the west side of the area.
Finding Lacewing Flies in Open Area
Usually, these insects are easily found in open areas like the wild but you should search properly. These items will be found in an area with grass and where the tree density is quite low. You should check the bushes as most of them are hidden inside them. It is recommended to search for these items at night as it glows which will be quite easy for you to find.
You can also use Lumos to make the area much more visible and brighter so you can search easily. You can also add Revelio to make the bushes highlighted so the search for Lacewing Flies can be much easier.
Floo Station Forest
You can also find these insets in Floo Station Forrest where if you move towards the east side, you may find at least 3 nests.
You can pick the Lacewing Flies by just pressing the left button when you are near a bush and a white diamond becomes visible. This way, the lacewing flies will be directly added to the inventory of the player.
Sometimes if you are lucky, the Lacewing Flies will be found around the area if searched properly. Though they have a transparent body due to their wide wing span and their specific glow, they can be spotted quite easily.
Uses of Lacewing Flies
Do note that the Flies is an ingredient used for a potion called the “Focus Potion”. This potion is used to decrease the cooldown rate on various spells when you are in between a fight. This potion can be used to access the best available spells more rapidly. This will give you an edge over your opponent, leading to an increased chance of winning the duel.
You can also use the Lacewing flies for using the Felix Felicis spell. The potion also helps to find some of the bigger chest vaults available in the game. This way you can increase your financial status. You can brew items like Focus Station and Felix Felicis for 1 minute each but other might take a bit while so plan accordingly.
Do note that the Focus potion requires three items which are 1x Lacewing Flies, 1x Fluxweed Stem, and 1x Dugbog Tongue. Therefore, the insects are one of the required items and without it, the potion cant is created.
These insects are also used for creating the Polyjuice Potion. These insects are one of the items for making this potion and this has to be stewed for about twenty-one days to make it ready.
The easiest way is to just buy the Lacewing Flies from the J.J. Pippin store. This option is quite suitable for those who don’t like to waste time finding items. But do note that this will require some of your financial investment and the plus side of this option is that you won’t have to devote some of your time to finding the required item for your potion.
The hard option is to find in the wild and all the above-mentioned areas. Though, this might seem hard and time-consuming but do remember that this is the cheapest way to obtain the insect without giving any gold coins.
