How To Start Rowland’s Map Quest

Adelaide Oakes can be found in the Transfiguration Courtyard to start the quest.

You need to head to the Transfiguration Courtyard in Hogwarts. There you will find yourself a girl named Adelaide Oaks. She will tell you about her uncle named Rowland Oakes.

In addition, she tells the player how she hasn’t been able to get in touch with her uncle. Hence she is worried that her uncle has been hurt or kidnapped by someone. Rowland is supposedly popular with Goblins and is a metal trader. He also keeps a journal and draws maps wherever he is going. Once you complete this conversation, the quest will start and you will see a mark on the map leading you to Rowland’s Map.

How To Find The Map

You can see the location of the last place Rowland was at once the quest has started. You must visit this area to find him and see what he has been up to. The location is marked on your map and all you have to do is follow it. Once you have followed the marker you will reach a campsite. However, instead of Rowland, you will find a bunch of Goblins.

In fact, these Goblins have taken Rowland captive somewhere else. Defeat the goblins and search camp. As we know Adelaide mentioned Rowland’s Journal and map.

Important: Use Revelio and find the map’s exact location. You find two items in that camp.

  • Rowland’s Journal 
  • Rowland’s Map

Both of these items specify what and where Rowland is. The journal tells us that he was going to meet up with Ranrok. And the map specifies the location where Rowland is being held captive. 

How To Use Rowland’s Map

The map that you find in the last campsite of Rowland.

Rowland’s map helps you locate where Rowland actually is. Hence, to find him the player must follow the path specified on the map. However, the map is a bit vague about it and is only drawings of a few landmarks. There are 2 ways you can reach the area Rowland is held captive. 

  • You travel by foot and spot each and every landmark that has been drawn by Rowland and you can find the place in no time. However, this method is a bit slow.
  • Take out your broom and fly over to the end of the river. Fly upwards and if you can see ruins this is where you can find Rowland. 

The ruins are a Goblin hideout. Moreover, these goblins are actually Ranrok’s Goblins and have captured Rowland to steal his metals. You need to be prepared to enter these ruins because there are a lot of Goblins in this fort. You should have the best traits on you so see our Hogwarts Legacy Best Traits Guide.

Rowland’s Location And How To Free Him

To find and free Rowland in the Kurrow Ruins:
