Map with Floating Candles solved

This map puzzle starts after players have met Natty in Lower Hogsfield. Players have to complete the Merlin Trial with Nora Treadwell. After it is completed, players unlock quests that are assigned to them based on their house:

  • The Hunt for the Missing Pages for Gryffindor
  • Scrope’s Last Hope for Slytherin
  • Ollivander’s Heirloom for Ravenclaw

How to solve the Ghost of Your Love Hogwarts Legacy treasure map?

After finding the map of Floating Candles, players have to travel toward the Forbidden Forest Floo Flame and change the time from day to night by exploring the map menu. Players will then spot a small bridge and find a love letter on the side. The game then takes players to two students who have made it into the forest to have a romantic dinner.

Now, to summon the floating candles, players will have to use the Lumos spell. The letter will help players do that. Once you have caught the candles’ attention, that is where the second part of the quest starts. Players have to follow the candles but not for too long. The lit-up floating candles are easy to find and players will be able to locate the chest that has the loot they need.

This whole process takes players closer to Jackdaw’s tomb and they can resume their main quest.
