How to Get the Defender of the Dragons Trophy/ Achievement in Hogwarts Legacy

Late in the main story of Hogwarts Legacy, shortly after completing Charles Rookwood’s second trial, you’ll be tasked with a quest called Fire and Vice.

Essentially, Poppy Sweeting will ask you to meet with her near Pitt-Upon-Ford. Speak with her there and she’ll explain that the poachers nearby are up to no good.

Poppy will then ask you to follow her. Follow her, and you’ll soon pass by some Centaurs, who are a little intimidating, but don’t worry, they won’t attack you.

You’ll soon stumble upon an abandoned poacher camp. Here, you’ll need to investigate certain objects before you can progress. Use Revelio is highlight the blue objects that you need to investigate. In addition to these, there are also some chests and bags to loot, as well as Galleons to pilfer. Once you discover some goblin metal, you’ll need to return to Poppy and speak to her.

Next, you’ll soon come to a poacher camp filled with poacher enemies. You can either go for the stealthy option and quietly slink in the shadows while taking your adversaries out one by one with Petrificus Totalus. Or, alternatively, you can go in all guns-blazing with your magic spells. Either will work effectively. Once you’re done, make your way towards the tent objective on your map.

In the tent, you’ll find a portal which teleports you to a mysterious place filled with gambling poachers who’re taking bets on dragon fights. Use your Disillusionment spell to stealthily make your way through some goblins and poachers to your next objective, which is to Investigate Horntail Hall.

After dealing with some Loyalist Warriors, you’ll come to a ladder. Head up the ladder, and you’ll soon discover a captive dragon tied up and being tortured by a handful of poachers. Follow the path down to a door, which you’ll need to use you Level 1 Alohomora Spell to unlock.

Head through some rooms that house quite a lot of bootable chests and objects and then you’ll come to a large hall where the captive dragon is trapped. Here, you’ll come up against a bunch of poachers and goblins, so prepare for a big fight.

Remember to break the shields of your foes with your correctly colored spells, heal with Wiggenweld Potions when you’re low on health, and you’ll soon overcome these enemies in no time. After you’ve defeated your adversaries, use your Accio force spell to pull on the metal ring just below the captive dragon (as pictured below). This will free the dragon.
