Along with the main questline that's packed with Harry Potter lore, you'll also encounter a slew of side quests that will gradually unlock as you progress through the story and learn more spells in Hogwarts Legacy. One of the side quests you'll discover when roaming around the Astronomy Wing is Heodiana's puzzle that starts with Sophronia Franklin.
Here's a complete guide that explains the prerequisites for Herodiana's puzzles and how to begin and complete this quest in just a few minutes.
In Hogwarts Legacy, how do you start Herodiana's puzzles?
To master Herodiana's Hogwarts Legacy puzzles, you'll first need to complete two side quests to learn Accio and Depulso. Both of these spells are learnt relatively early on. The NPC should be located in front of the Charms Classroom Floo Flame.
If you don't see the NPC, you'll have to pay a visit to Professor Sharp and complete Professor Sharp's Assignment one, which tasks you with obtaining and using Focus, Maxima, and Endurus powers. After you've completed that, you'll learn how to cast Depulso.
Use Floo Flame to get to the Charms Classroom in the Astronomy Wing once you've grasped all of the required information and know how to cast both Accio and Depulso. You'll notice an NPC named Sophronia Franklin just outside the classroom. Start the quest.
In Hogwarts Legacy, how do you complete Herodiana's puzzles?
Once you have completed the quest, climb the stairs to the ground floor of the Defence Against the Dark Arts Tower, south of the Transfiguration Courtyard. Once you get to the entrance to the Heodiana Hall, use Depulso in the middle block of the red wall to reveal the entrance.
Use the Depulso spell to solve the first puzzle and move two movable blocks from one side of the room to the other. Climb the blocks and reach the chest that will be a new outfit for you.
You will need to use Depulso to move the block against the wall, and Accio to bring the block to the line of blocks for the second puzzle. Jump onto the blocks and to the platform to find your next chest.
Use Accio to get the blocks to the south wall, then Depulso to get the blocks to the switch. Then return to Accio to bull the block to the north wall, then use Accio to move the blocks first to the east wall, then to the north wall, for the final puzzle.
