All Daedalian Key locations in Hogwarts Legacy
The first Daedalian Key may be found by climbing the wooden stairs up to 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. There you'll find the Cabinet by a group of students.
After going through the wooden doors, go to the Potions Classroom and use the left ramp to find the House Cabinet.
Go downstairs and turn right at the unicorn statue. Then, go down another set of stairs and turn left to find the Daedalian Key. The Cabinet will be located at the opposite end of the hall.
After climbing the stairs and looking behind the smaller staircase to the right, you'll need to go back down the stairs and turn right.
Make your way to the Great Hall and you'll discover the House Cabinet opposite the entrance, up the stairs. Another Cabinet may be found opposite the fireplace.
After you have found the two, open the doors that lead out of the Great Hall and go downstairs until you reach the serpent statue. Just follow the key to the bottom of the stairs and you'll find the third one.
Go to the Faculty Tower and climb the stairs until you reach the room with the balloons to find the first Key. Return down the stairs and you'll find the House Cabinet behind the staircase.
Once that's done, climb up the stairs of the Faculty Tower and enter the hallway that has magical paintings on the walls. At the very end of the hallway, you'll discover the second Key, which will need to be followed 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.
The Daedalian Key will be next to a painting when you descend the magic staircase. You may then follow it down the stairs toward the Cabinet.
Use the Alohomora spell to unlock the locked entrance to the Clock Tower Courtyard and ascend the stairs. The Daedalian Key will be displayed in the corner of the room, and the Cabinet will be further up the stairs.
Visit the Bell Tower Courtyard and climb the first set of stairs. After entering the wooden entrance, you will find the Daedalian Key, which will take you to the Cabinet up the stairs.
After ascending the round staircase, the first Daedalian Key can be seen in the map chamber. It will be float in the hallway by a few cauldrons, and you may 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 take you up the stairs to the House Cabinet.
In the Hogwarts Legacy, how do you open the House Chest?
Opening each House Cabinet with the key will give you a House Token, and claiming all 16 House Tokens will allow you to unlock the House Chest in your Common Room by pressing the interact button.
Once that's been completed, you'll receive your own House Uniform as a reward. This outfit can be purchased after visiting the Gear screen. That's all you need to know about finding Daedalian keys in Hogwarts Legacy.
