Hogwarts Legacy is packed with side quests that take you around the game world in search of treasure, Gobstones, and so much more. In an early quest, The Daedalian Keys, you’re tasked with finding 16 Daedalian Keys around Hogwarts, and they’re not easy to locate. This guide outlines where all the Daedalian Keys are, so you can complete this quest in no time at all.

Every Daedalian Key location in Hogwarts Legacy

Here, we’ve broken down each Daedalian Key location, explaining where it is as well as which Floo Flame you should use to reach it quickly.

Daedalian Key 1: Astronomy Tower

The first Daedalian Key you’ll be pointed to is located in the Astronomy Tower. The nearest Floo Flame you can travel to is the Astronomy Tower one itself. Once there, head up the stairs opposite the Floo Flame, and you’ll see the key straight away. Follow it back down the stairs and into the nearby classroom, where it will be hovering in front of a cabinet. Slap the key to unlock the cabinet, and you’ll have completed this first part of The Daedalian Keys quest.

Daedalian Key 2: The Grand Staircase

To find this key, travel to The Grand Staircase Tower Floo Flame. Head down The Grand Staircase, and you should eventually come across the Daedalian Key as you do. It’ll fly further down the staircase, so follow it for a few more floors. You’ll come to a landing where you can see a puzzle door to your right. Keep running, and the cabinet will be just beyond it down the hall.

Fast travel to The Great Hall Floo Flame. Take the large double doors to your right to get outside and go down the stairs and keep going right through the archway. This leads to the Quad Courtyard, where you should be able to see a key flying around. Follow it down the stairs and to the right. It’ll lead you to a door back into the castle, but the cabinet is to the right of that door.
