When do you unlock mounts in Hogwarts Legacy?

Hogwarts Legacy mounts are one of the most spectacular ways to navigate maps, even though they tend to be slower than jumping on your Hogwarts Legacy broomstick. However, they unlock much later in-game than the broom, so if you’re wondering when mounts will unlock in Hogwarts Legacy, you’ll have to wait a bit.

How to get a mount in Hogwarts Legacy?

To get a mount at Hogwarts Legacy You need to complete the quest called The High Keep. This is a main quest quest after the second try (Charles Rookwood’s Trial) and starts with meeting Natty near some old castle ruins.

After rescuing Highwing and another Hippogriff from poachers and completing this quest, you will be able to summon Highwing as a mount.

This will also be the point at which any pre-order or Deluxe Edition mount bonuses will be unlocked. Anyone who pre-orders Hogwarts Legacy will get access to the onyx Hippogriff called Caligo, after which Deluxe Edition owners will also receive a Thestral called Sepulchria.

How are mounts summoned in Hogwarts Legacy?

Once you complete the High Keep quest and access Highwing, you can summon them using L1 / LB followed by triangle / Y.

Then, when you get on, press X/A to take off, or you can also run on the ground while getting on. You can press R2 / RT to go faster through the air and then adjust your height using the right analog stick.

Landing a mount is much more difficult than landing on a broomstick, so to land you have to push all the way down until your mount reaches the ground, then press circle / B to actually land.

How many Hogwarts Legacy mounts are there?

There are currently four Hogwarts Legacy mounts available in the game. These:

  • Flying the White Hippogriff (Unlocked by completing the High Fortress quest)
  • Onxy Hippogriff Caligo (pre-order bonus)
  • Thestral Sepulchria (Deluxe Edition bonus)
  • Master of the Beach Graphorn (Unlocked by completing San Bakar’s Trial quest)

The release of Hogwarts Legacy has been the subject of criticism and controversy due to JK Rowling’s public stance on gender identity, which continues to question the inclusivity at the heart of the Harry Potter community. Here is our explainer Hogwarts Legacy controversy (opens in new tab).
