Beasts Class – Hogwarts Legacy Quest

In this walkthrough of the Main Story quest “Beasts Class”, we’ll help you get through Professor Howin’s class, in which you’ll learn to care for magical creatures — these skills will come in handy once you start using the Vivarium.

  • Quest Type: Main Story
  • Location: Beasts Classroom, Bell Tower Wing, Hogwarts Castle (map)
  • Requirements
  • Rewards
    • 260 XP
    • +40 HP

You need to reach the Beast Classroom, which is found outside near the Bell Tower Wing. If you don’t have the Floo Flame for the classroom, you should at least have the Flying Class Lawn Floo Flame. Take the closest option and make your way to where the objective marker is indicating — hit (button xbox dpad up) if you’re having trouble finding your way. If you didn’t already have it, make sure you grab the Floo Flame for the class before standing in the gold circle and pressing playstation square button/button xbox x v2 to begin the quest.

When the cutscene ends, you’ll be sitting with Poppy, who lends you a brush so you can nurture the Puffskein. You equip the brush just like you would a spell: press button xbox dpad right, and then hover the Beast Petting Brush and hold playstation r2 button, then tap a face button to assign the brush. You may want to put it on a separate spell diamond from your combat spells.

Once you’ve got the brush ready, use it the same way you would any spell, and you’ll magically brush the Puffskein! Notice that the affection icon —hogleg beastcase affection dark— turns from dark to green hogleg beastcase affection greenonce you’ve brushed the beast.

Now you’ll need to do the same thing with Beast Feed. Add it to one of your Spell Diamonds and “cast” it on the Puffskein, and watch how the hunger icon — hogleg beastcase hunger dark— becomes green hogleg beastcase hunger green once you’ve fed the beast. After doing so, a cutscene will play.

When the cutscene ends, you’ll need to brush one of the Kneazles. Get close to them by walking through the gate of the pen — the affection and hunger icons should apear above the Kneazle you’re targeting. Use the Beast Petting Brush on one of the Kneazles. While the Kneazle you brushed is enjoying its grooming, target a different Kneazle and use the Beast Feed.

Professor Howin will dismiss the class, and then say that she wants a word with you. Walk over to her and press playstation square button/button xbox x v2. After speaking with her, do the same with Poppy, who’s right behind you.

When your conversation ends, you’ll need to follow Poppy. Keep an eye out for the Moonstone on the right-hand side of the road as you do so (1). After following her for a bit, a cutscene will start, and you’ll meet Poppy’s rather impressive friend, Highwing the Hippogriff. During the cutscene, you’ll need to push in on the right stick to bow to Highwing when prompted (2).

Just like with the other beasts, you’ll need to use the Beast Petting Brush and the Beast Feed on Highwing. Doing so will cause another conversation with Poppy to start. When it ends, you’ll have completed the quest!

Beast’s Class is one of three Main Story quests that become available after completing Percival Rackham’s Trial:

Once you’ve completed all three, two more quests will open up: “The Elf, the Nab-Sack, and the Loom”, and “In the Shadow of the Estate”. If you’ve been following along with our guides, next up is The Caretaker’s Lunar Lament!
