Hogwarts Legacy: All Daedalian Keys Location

Unlocking your house chest in Hogwarts Legacy requires finding all the Daedalian Keys, a task that may prove challenging. But don’t worry! This guide provides you with essential information on how to find and use these keys to unlock your house chest.

What are Daedalian Keys?

  • Daedalian Keys are special keys in the game that unlock cabinets containing house tokens, which are required to open your house chest.
  • There are a total of 16 Daedalian keys in the game and finding each one could take up some time if you don’t know where to look for.
  • To find the keys, you must explore Hogwarts’ different areas, some of which are hidden, while others are in plain sight.

How to Start the Quest

Before anything else, it’s important to know that you will need the Alohomora spell to complete this quest. Some of the keys are found inside locked rooms, so the only way to get to them is to learn the spell from Gladwin Moon. On the other hand, you can still begin the quest without Alohomora and finish it after.
