While casting spells and defeating enemies is the main experience of the latest Wizarding World game, there are plenty of Hogwarts Legacy beasts to find. There’s a variety of magical animals that all offer different materials when looked after. If you’re hoping to experience everything Hogwarts has to offer, you’ll want to find them.

Hogwarts Legacy has drawn considerable criticism during its development, largely due to the fact that the creator of the Harry Potter series, J.K. Rowling, has made a number of transphobic remarks on social media in recent years.
While Avalanche has confirmed that J.K. Rowling is not “directly involved” in the development of Hogwarts Legacy, it is working with “her team” and Portkey Games, a Warner Bros. label dedicated to launching new experiences inspired by J.K. Rowling’s original stories. It is currently unclear whether she will earn any royalties from the game’s sale, but it is likely given it is based on her original body of work.
