  1. Play through the main story quests for a few hours.
  2. After completing the Flying Class quest with Madam Kogawa, you will receive a notification to meet Professor Weasley in the Astronomy Tower.

What Can You Do In The Room Of Requirement?

Now that you’ve unlocked the Room of Requirement, it’s time to understand all the different things you can do inside it. Since the room is a space for your wizard to get away from all the hustle and bustle of Hogwarts. Hence, you get full freedom to customize it as you wish. 

Players will only need the spells (Evanesco, Conjuring, and Altering) that we mentioned earlier to customize the Room of Requirement. Other than that, it’s also important to have a bunch of Moonstones at hand, since without them you won’t be able to conjure up new items inside the room. Nevertheless, here are some of the things you can conjure up, along with some cool features to look forward to in Hogwarts Legacy.

Hogwart Legacy does a good job of depicting the Room of Requirement where you can make almost anything come true (except food). Players can engage in various activities and customization options. Here’s what you can do and some of the features available within the Room of Requirement:

  1. Crafting Tables: You can craft functioning tables to carry out different tasks using Moonstones. These tables include:
    • Desk of Description: This table is available by default and allows you to learn more about unidentified gear items you acquire during your adventures.
    • Potion Station: You can conjure this table using 2x Moonstones during the “Room of Requirement” quest. It enables you to brew potions, which can be valuable for your character’s progress. You can eventually place more Potion Stations in the room as you advance in the game.
    • Potting Table: Conjure this table with 2x Moonstones during the “Room of Requirement” quest. It allows you to grow various plants in pots, similar to what you’d find in the Herbology class.
    • Loom: After unlocking the Vivarium, you can extract resources from your creatures, which can then be used at the Loom to upgrade your gear. The Loom helps enhance your clothing by adding buffs and traits, provided you have the right ingredients.

These features and activities within the Room of Requirement offer players opportunities for customization, crafting, and improving their character’s abilities, making it a versatile and enjoyable space in the game.

Vivarium

A place where Hagrid would be proud of you! Even though this won’t be available at the beginning but as you play through the game you’ll eventually unlock the Vivarium inside the Room of Requirement. To be precise players can unlock the Vivarium after they complete their first Beast class in Hogwarts. The Vivarium will be a safe haven for all the creatures that you rescue during your journey.

Players can keep creatures like the Puffskein, Niffler, Graphorn, Thestral, and many more. You’ll be able to care for these creatures inside the Vivarium by petting them and feeding them. In return, you will be able to acquire some useful resources from them which can later be used in the Loom table to upgrade your gear.

Customization
