There are plenty of incredible and magical beasts to find in the Wizarding World, and getting a Hogwarts Legacy mount will allow you to ride these amazing creatures. Iconic animals such as the Hippogriff or Thestral are waiting for you, and finding one could make it a lot easier to travel.
During our time spent in our Hogwarts Legacy review, we found ourselves meeting all manner of Hogwarts Legacy fantastic beasts. Thankfully, many of them can be kept safe in the Hogwarts Legacy Vivariums in the Hogwarts Legacy Room of Requirement after finding them out and about in the Hogwarts Legacy map. All of this information was obtained during our Hogwarts Legacy review.

These can be used alongside your broom to get around easily and a lot faster, while exploring the full Hogwarts Legacy map.
Hogwarts Legacy how to get a mount
You’ll unlock the ability to use mounts during the ‘The High Keep’ quest in Hogwarts Legacy, where you get to use Highwing as a mount.
Highwing is a Hippogriff that you meet earlier in the game, during one of the Hogwarts Legacy classes and lessons, specifically the Beasts class. After the above mission, which is part of the Hogwarts Legacy main quests, you’ll be able to use Highwing in the open world. You can also swap to the Thestral if you pre-ordered the game.
That’s how to get a mount in Hogwarts Legacy and everything to know about Hogwarts Legacy mounts. If you’re hoping to find the rest of the beasts in the game, you’ll definitely want to learn all Hogwarts Legacy spells to help you survive in the wilds. Or if a broom will suffice, you can check out our guide on how to get a broom in Hogwarts Legacy, which is still a great way to get around.
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.
