How to Find & Catch a Thestral in Hogwarts Legacy
Magical Monster hunting.
Hogwarts Legacy lets players live out their wildest, magically inspired dreams, by bringing fans back to the wizarding world in this original story by Avalanche Software. Aside from crafting a wand and choosing your own house, one activity involves catching magical creatures in a light take on Monster Hunter. One creature that can be obtained is the Thestral, and if you’re having trouble finding them, fear not; here’s what you need to know about how to find and catch Thestrals in Hogwarts Legacy
Where to Catch Thestrals in Hogwarts Legacy
After completing both The Elf, The Nab-Sack, and The Loom and The High Keep questlines in Hogwarts Legacy, respectively, you’ll be given a Nab-Sack, which is your tool for capturing magical beasts, while also unlocking the ability to ride certain creatures as mounts, such as Thestral. Capturing it will allow you to bring them back to the Room of Requirement, where you’ll take care of them to get the materials while also serving as a mode of transportation.
When it comes to capturing a Thestral, it’s a little tricky as it requires you to be sneaky. Upon finding a spot where Thestrals inhabit, you’ll need to use the Disillusionment spell to sneak up on them. Follow that up with Arresto Momentum, and they’ll be ready to be captured for a brief period.
Finding Thestrals in Hogwarts Legacy
Provided you have progressed far enough in the story, and have explored quite a bit, Thestral locations will be marked on your map by a paw print. If you haven’t encountered any places yet, you’re not in trouble as there’s only two place you can find them. They are:
East North Ford Bog
Once you’ve actually found them, your work isn’t done quite yet, especially since Thestrals are faster than you are on foot. In order to capture them, you’ll need to cast some spells. To be exact, you’ll need to cast Accio, Accio, and Levioso, and then use your Nap-Sack. Once you do, this mythical beat will be all yours.
That’s all you need to know about where to find Thestrals and how to catch them in Hogwarts Legacy. Check out our related section below for more tips and tricks to make your journey as easy as possible.
