In Hogwarts Legacy, How to Find Daedalian Keys
In Hogwarts Legacy, there are 16 Daedalian keys, and before you can get them, you'll need to progress through the story until you acquire the Alohomora spell. Once that's done, you'll need to talk with Nellie Oggspire in the Astronomy Tower to start this quest.
Here's what you should do:
In the Hogwarts Legacy, how do you open House Cabinets?
By waiting until the Key points towards the keyhole, you can unlock the House Cabinet.
All Daedalian Key locations in Hogwarts Legacy
The first Daedalian Key can be found by ascending the wooden steps until you reach the Astronomy Room. The Daedalian Key will be next to the cabinet in the room.
Make your way to the Defence Against the Dark Arts Tower and climb the steps across from the skeleton. You'll then find the Cabinet by a group of students.
After going through the wooden doors to the House Cabinet, go to the Potions Classroom and use the left-hand staircase.
The unicorn statue will be located at the opposite end of the hall. Next, you'll need to go up another set of stairs and turn left to find the Daedalian Key.
After climbing the stairs and looking behind the smaller staircase to the left, you'll need to go back down the stairs and turn left.
The House Cabinet will be visible down the steps to the right of the entrance. Another Cabinet may be seen up the stairs, opposite the fireplace.
Once you have found those two, open the doors that lead out of The Great Hall and go down until you reach the serpent statue. Just follow the Key to the bottom of the stairs and you'll find the third one.
Take the stairs back down the stairs until you reach the room with the balloons and find the first Key. You'll find the House Cabinet hidden beneath the stairs.
Once that's been completed, climb the stairs of the Faculty Tower and go through the hallway that has magical paintings on the walls. At the very end of the hallway, you'll find the second Key and will need to follow it to the cabinet by the bronze statue.
Go to the Library and make a left turn towards the fireplace. The Daedalian Key will be on the opposite side of the room.
Go down the magical staircase and you'll notice the Daedalian Key next to a painting. You can then follow it down the steps toward the Cabinet.
Use the Alohomora spell to unlock the locked door in the Clock Tower Courtyard and ascend the stairs. The Daedalian Key will be visible in the corner of the room, and the Cabinet will be further up the stairs.
After entering the wooden door, go into the Bell Tower Courtyard and climb the first set of stairs. The Daedalian Key will lead you to the Cabinet up the stairs.
After going up the rounded staircase, you can find the first Daedalian Key in the Map Chamber. It will be float in the hallway by some cauldrons, and you can follow the Key into a room filled with wine barrels.
The second Daedalian Key at this location is inside the room with the sleeping dragon statue, which you may visit by going through the same hallway where you found the first Key. The Daedalian Key will then take you up the steps to the House Cabinet.
In the Hogwarts Legacy, how do you open the House Chest?
Opening each House Cabinet with the key will grant you a House Token, and claiming all 16 House Tokens will unlock the House Chest in your Common Room when you press the interact button.
As a reward, you'll receive your own House Uniform. This outfit may be purchased after visiting the Gear screen. That's all you need to know about finding Daedalian keys in Hogwarts Legacy.
