You can find this quest when you reach Irondale, one of the small villages south of Hogwarts in the Feldcroft Region. You’ll need to speak with an NPC to start this quest and then wait until nighttime to begin working on it.

When you arrive at the stall, there will be several gold coins on the ground. Pick these up, and you’ll need to follow them to the next area. Following the coins can be tricky because they are low to the ground and hard to see. We recommend using Revelio to highlight them.

These coins should take you to the west and lead you across the river, to the bandit camp, to a Merlin Trial, and to a Treasure Vault. Continue past this point, down the large cliffside until you nearly reach the Feldcroft Catacomb. The location needs to reach the southeast of this fast travel, and it will lead you to a Niffler den, revealing them as the culprit.

To prove it was the Niffler, you’ll now need to catch one using the Nab-Sack, and the next thing to do is to climb to the top of the Niffler den and find the heirloom. You can now return to Pádraic Haggarty in Irondale, and complete the quest.
