Can You Catch and Rescue Dragons in Hogwarts Legacy?
The solution to this question partially depends on how we catch or rescue this dragon. However, one simple answer is to say that no, you can’t catch dragons using your Nab-Sack. This also means you can’t bring any to your Vivariums or breed them. The main reason for this is that there are no wild dragons or dens in Hogwarts Legacy, giving you zero opportunities to rescue them in the first place.
However, you technically can rescue a dragon in Hogwarts Legacy. It’s just not in the way you’d initially expect. There are some story and friendship quest spoilers ahead, though, so be careful when scrolling further.
