As the title suggests, Hogwarts Legacy gives players the chance to live out their fantasy witch or wizard life as a student in the iconic academy. With tons of secrets to uncover, there’s plenty to look forward to in this massive game. Here’s what you need to know about Floo Powder and how to fast travel in Hogwarts Legacy.

Floo Flames in Hogwarts Legacy Explained

It’s worth noting that you don’t actually use Floo Powder itself in Hogwarts Legacy; instead, you’ll find green Floo Flames scattered all over Hogwarts and the surrounding castle grounds. This is your primary mode of fast travel in the game, at least until you get your broomstick. There’s no need to worry about finding or using Floo Powder as it’s just referred to only as an explaintation as to how fast traveling works.

As you explore the world, you’ll find flame symbols popping up onscreen. Grey means they’ve yet to be activated, while green means you’ve activated them. All you have to do is walk past the Floo Flame to activate them, and they’ll become a fast travel point on your map.

You can then pull up the menu and open the map, then select an area and take a look at all the Floo Flames you’ve unlocked so far. Simply select any of the Floo Flames, then press the square button to fast travel there immediately. You don’t need to be at one Floo Flame to travel to another, either — fast travel in Hogwarts Legacy is completely unrestricted in that sense.

Again, you won’t be able to actually use Floo Powder in the game, but the Floo Flames basically serve the same purpose. It’s just the game’s version of fast travel, similar to the signposts in The Witcher 3.

That’s all you need to know about using Floo Powder in Hogwarts Legacy. Be sure to search for Twinfinite for more tips and information on the game. You can also check out some of the related content listed below.
