Hogwarts Legacy Guide: How to learn and use Alohomora

Hogwarts Legacy Alohomora When you come across locked doors in Hogwarts Legacy, the Alohomora spell will come in handy; here’s how to learn and use it.

How to learn Alohomora in Hogwarts Legacy ?

After completing the main story quest, The Caretaker’s Lunar Lament, you will be able to obtain Alohomora.

In this mission, you have to help Gladwin Moon, the caretaker of Hogwarts, in what seems to be a plan to torture him with Demiguise Statues. You’ll have to sneak past teachers and other students to get the first moon each statue holds and make it disappear.

Gladwin Moon will teach you Alohomora Level 1 if you do well. But if you want to open Level 2 and Level 3 locks, you’ll have to keep finding Demiguise Statues and giving them back to Moon until he has enough for you to learn the stronger versions of Alohomora.

How to use it ?

You don’t even have to assign this spell to one of your spell slots to use it. Simply approaching a locked door or chest will trigger the prompt to use Alohomora over an unlocking mini-game.

In this minigame, you have to keep moving the left and right joysticks on your controller until the red and green lights for each part of the lock line up correctly and are duplicated in two other circles in the middle and bottom right of the screen.

When you succeed, you’ll gain access to whichever room was locked and the loot it contained, or to the loot in one of the many locked chests you’ll come across.

That’s all there is to our Hogwarts Legacy Alohomora guide.
