Can You Breed Phoenixes in Hogwarts Legacy?

If you’ve progressed far enough into the story to head into the Phoenix Mountain Cave, climb to the top and catch your first phoenix, you may notice something: You only have one phoenix! To breed any animal in the game, you need two of the same species and a breeding pen. From here, you go into the Breeding Pen menu, select the species and wait until the process finishes. You’ll end up with a smaller offspring version of the beast, which you can gather resources from and care for.

With that in mind, what’s the issue? You need two phoenixes to breed them. Since you only get one phoenix from the quest location with no dens or other spawn locations, it is impossible to get any more in the base game. In other words, you can’t breed phoenixes.

Your phoenix is destined to live a life as the only one of its kind. Despite this, you can still house it with other beasts to make it feel less lonely. It’s just impossible to get a dozen tiny phoenixes flying around.

Having only one phoenix and not being able to breed them also means you only have one to gain resources from, making phoenix feathers a rare material. All the more reason to feed and take care of the little guy!

Hogwarts Legacy is available on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch through the official website. To learn more about the game, check out How to Complete Solved by the Bell Puzzle in Hogwarts Legacy and How to Get More Spell Slots in Hogwarts Legacy.
