As we mentioned earlier, the Room of Requirement only unlocks after you play the main story for a few hours. However, the good part is that the secret room is not missable. It is acquired through one of the main quests in the game. Hence, all players are guaranteed to unlock the Room of Requirement as long as they play through the major quests of the game. 

With that said, players that are eagerly waiting to access the room will need to reach a quest called “Room of Requirement” led by Professor Weasley. The mission will be available for the players after they complete the Flying Class quest with Madam Kogawa. After you conclude the Flying Class by getting in touch with the mechanics of flying a Broom, the game will notify you to meet Professor Weasley in the Astronomy Tower.

Once you reach the Astronomy Tower and begin the quest, your wizard will stumble upon the secret door of the Room of Requirement. Right at that point, Professor Weasley will enter the hallway and invite you inside the Room of Requirement.

Exploring The Room & Finding Deek

During the quest, you will explore the Room of Requirement alongside Professor Weasley, while trying to find the house elf called Deek. As you make your way through the huge piles of random things, Professor Weasley will, from time to time, teach you some new spells. The spells you learn inside the Room of Requirement include:

  • Evanesco: Used to make things vanish.
  • Conjuring: Spell used to craft/conjure different objects in the Room of Requirement.
  • Altering: Spell used to customize the conjured-up items inside the Room of Requirement.

These transfiguration spells can not be used outside of the Room of Requirement. Hence, whenever you visit the room make sure to equip these spells for your ease. Nonetheless, during the quest, while making use of some of these spells, you will also come across a resource called “Moonstone“. These resources will also come in handy later on when you’ll craft, or shall we say conjure up, items while decorating the Room of Requirement.

Players can also purchase moonstones from specific shops, apart from that they are also found throughout the Highlands in Hogwarts Legacy. Also, using the Evanesco spell on things inside the Room of Requirement will also yield some Moonstones.

After a while of solo exploration, the player will finally stumble upon Deek. Eventually, with Deek’s help the player will be able to form their own comfort space inside the Room of Requirement. This sequence will ultimately unlock the Room of Requirement for you to confide in whenever you feel like it. After that, Professor Weasley will give you some quick tutorials on what you can do inside the room which will eventually lead to the end of the quest.

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.

Feel free to drop by the Room of Requirement and hang out with Deek.

First up, players can craft certain functioning tables to carry out some basic tasks. These platforms can be crafted by using up Moonstones. Although, the Desk of Description will be available right off the bat, and you will conjure up the Potting Table and Potions Station during the tutorial phase with Professor Weasley. Here is what all of these tables and stations do inside the Room of Requirement.

The Potion Stations is one of the crucial features which will make you come back to the Room of Requirement again and again. Here you’ll be able to brew potions that can be used later on. As you progress through the game, you’ll eventually be able to place more Potion Stations in the room.
  • Potting Table: Can be conjured up by using up 2x Moonstones during the “Room of Requirement” quest. This table can be used to grow multiple kinds of plants inside pots. The Potting Table is similar to the one you’ll see in the Herbology class.
  • Loom: After you unlock the Vivarium, you will be able to extract resources from your creatures from time to time. These resources can then be used at the Loom to upgrade your gear. You can add all kinds of buffs and traits to your clothing with the Loom (only if you have the right ingredients).

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.
