Using the Alohomora spell

Picking locks in Hogwarts Legacy

I was looking thought the early footage of Hogwarts Legacy for things people might get a bit stuck on. Picking locks in Hogwarts Legacy looked liked a potential stumbling block.

Alohomora is the lock picking charm and despite it looking easy in the movies and books, Hogwarts Legacy has a mini game.

This how to is using a games controller. I’ll include the PC controls when they are available.

Simple when you know how

When I first looked at the screen I was a bit stumped for a few seconds. Here is the screen you are presented with.

You have two rings, the outer green ring and an inner red ring. You also have a green dot (spark) controlled be the left joystick and Red dot controlled by the right joystick. If you have issues seeing colour then the big dot for the big green ring and small dot for the small red ring.

There is also two mechanisms. One in the centre if the rings and another to the bottom right.

Moving the left trigger to the side will move the dot to lock into the ring, you can then rotate the joystick to spin the ring around, do this slowly until the bottom right mechanism begins to rotate.

Once rotating, hold the left joystick there and do the same with the right joystick for the red ring.

Once both are moving hold it there for a second and then you have beaten the lock and you are good to go.

More handy tips and tricks coming soon. Leave a comment below with any ideas for tips you may want.

Thanks the WizardPhd for the footage. Why not take a bit of time to look at their channel and leave a comment saying how you found them.
