How to Unlock Ghost of Our Love Quest in Hogwarts Legacy

The Ghost of Our Love side quest will get unlocked automatically as you play through the main story of Hogwarts Legacy. To be exact, you’ll need to make it to the following house questlines in order to activate it:

  • Gryffindor Quest: The Hunt for the Missing Pages.
  • Hufflepuff Quest: Prisoner of Love.
  • Ravenclaw Quest: Ollivander’s Heirloom.
  • Slytherin Quest: Scrope’s Last Hope.

When you do, you’ll eventually get a message via Owl post. Essentially, as long as you’re following the main story markers, you’ll eventually be tasked with helping Scrope investigate a grotto, and you’ll come across a treasure map.

Inspecting this shows a forest in the upper left-hand corner, a wand with an arrow to some candles in the center, an archway, and a bridge. Finding this floating candles treasure map in Hogwarts Legacy triggers the start of Ghost of Our Love.
