How to Capture Magical Beasts

As you work through the main story, you’ll eventually reach a quest called “The Elf, the Nab-Sack, and the Loom” (it’s quest 23!). Deek provides you with a Nab Sack which allows you to capture magical beasts by aiming your equipped Nab Sack at a target!

Make sure you feed and pet your magical beasts, as this provides you with important resources that the beasts drop.

The Vivarium

The Vivarium is located in The Room of Requirement! This is where the magical beasts you capture will reside. A Vivarium can only hold 4 species at the same time, which is why you need to unlock further Vivariums! There are 3 Vivarium’s in total.

  • 2nd Vivarium – Complete the side quest “The Plight of the House-Elf”
  • 3rd Vivarium – Complete the side quest “Foal of the Dead”

Hogwarts Legacy Mounts

Once you unlock the Nab Sack, you can continue on with the main story. Once you reach quest 25 in the questline, you’ll have a quest called “The High Keep”. As you complete this quest, you’ll unlock the ability to ride a Hippogriff, as well as other beasts.
