There are a slew of side quests and missions to complete in Hogwarts Legacy, including the hunt for all the Daedalian keys. There are plenty of winged keys flying around the castle that open up special cabinets containing House Crests for your specific House Chest. We've created this guide to assist you in finding each one.
Where Can I Find All Daedalian Keys in Hogwarts Legacy?
The key to unlocking the House Chest in your common room is likely to be 16 Daedalian keys. Look for the playful little fluttering noise indicating the key is nearby. Here's where you can find them:
The Astronomy key will begin after receiving the side quest from Nellie, and your quest marker will take you directly to where you need to go in the Astronomy classroom. The cabinet is located right beside the Astronomy Tower Floo Flame.
You'll need to go up the staircases toward the outer tower to get the key, and you'll find the key sticking out of the elevators.
The easiest way to locate the House Cabinet and its matching key is to take the Floo Flame to the Bell Tower Courtyard. From there, climb the left-side staircase and through the door. Continue down the few steps and doors, staying to the left, until you reach the Dungeon door.
Continue further into the Dungeons until you reach the dragon bones statue, and the key will be laying around there.
The easiest way to locate this House Cabinet and Daedalian key is to start at The Map Chamber. Once you climb the Map Chamber spiral stairs and enter the Dungeon, walk down the stairs to your left. Immediately make a sharp right, and you'll notice the cabinet beside a bunch of barrel cases.
The key is located farther out of the dungeon, back toward the dragon bones statue. As soon as you enter the hallway with the cauldrons piled beside the locked doors, you'll notice the key fly around.
Floo Flame from the Great Hall and exit the two sets of doors. Follow the key around the fireplace to the left of the entrance. Then up a passage where the cupboard is tucked away.
This House Cabinet may be seen once more using the Great Hall Floo. Leave the Great Hall and ascend the stairs to the Grand Staircase. It is just before the Grand Staircase that the cabinet is located.
Continue up the Grand Staircase's center spiral until you reach a dead end. The key will be flying around a painting of a mole creature.
Use the Great Hall Floo and walk straight out both sets of doors toward the main entrance of the castle. The key will be directly in front of you as you exit the second door in the overhanging balcony area. Follow it down the steps to the right, near the hog statue.
Use the Bell Tower Courtyard Floo to access the cabinet and key. Start up the left-side stairs all the way up until you reach a music room. When you're in the music room, go up the correct steps and through the door. The cabinet will be directly inside.
Continue across the cabinet and down the stairs heading toward the History of Magic classroom. The key will be located as you descend down the stairs.
Use the Floo Flame in the Defence Against the Dark Arts Classroom and then immediately turn left and continue walking forward until you reach the railing. The cabinet will be against the wall here.
Continue up the steps until you get to the large rhino skeleton and find the key. This area will hold the key for you.
To find the cabinet and key, teleport to the Potions Classroom Floo and continue through the doors. The key will be located outside the main classroom beside a pile of cauldrons. Follow the stairs to the left until you see the cabinet.
Use the Central Hall Floo and go down the stairs and to the left, past the unicorn fountain. When you reach the Greenhouse doors, take a left. You'll find the key just before the archway.
Follow the key back across the Central Hall, past the unicorn fountain once more, and toward the Transfiguration Courtyard. The cabinet is tucked just to the right of the door.
Once more, climb the steps past the bard's painting. You'll notice the cabinet to the left as you climb up.
Continue climbing the stairs until you reach the right hand side. The key is located underneath a ramp between two pillars.
Teleport to the Library Floo and then turn left to find the cabinet across from some bookcases. To find the key, turn right across the library. Keep an eye on the right side where the key will be flying between several bookcases directly before the fireplace.
Take the Quad Courtyard Floo, then turn left and walk past the serpent fountain and up three sets of stairs. At the top of the third staircase, take a left, and you'll find the key floating around.
Follow the key back down the stairs toward the serpent fountain, and then take a left. Proceed past a mermaid carving and toward the entrance to the Gryffindor Hall. The cabinet is directly to the right of the door.
The last three keys require you to have the Alohomora spell and are located in the Clock Tower and Faculty/Hospital Towers. We will update this page when we have their exact locations.
In Hogwarts Legacy, how do I open Daedalian Key Cabinets?
After finding the key and locating the correct cabinet for it, you'll need to figure out how to get the key into the lock. Be careful as the key crosses the hole with A or X. If you have timed it correctly, the key will unlock the cabinet and reveal a House Crest.
Once you have collected House Crests, you may return to your common room and find your House Chest. When you approach it, you'll have the option to place down the sixteen crests you have. Placing all sixteen crests will open it up and reward you with a unique Cape Appearance.
