Fantastic Mounts and Where to Find Them

Change Mounts Hogwarts Legacy

Brooms are wizards’ most common choices for transportation, but it doesn’t mean that they can’t use other methods, such as flying cars, apparition, or even riding magical beasts as mounts. That last method is pretty common in Hogwarts Legacy as you can freely explore the skies above the school grounds.

While it takes quite a while for unlocking your first mount, you get access to a couple more of them in no time, so here’s how you can change your mount in Hogwarts Legacy.

How to Use Other Mounts in Hogwarts Legacy

The first mount you get is the Hippogryph Highwing, unlocked through the “The High Keep” main quest. This isn’t one of those early quests, so it might take you a while to get it, especially if you’ve been doing a lot of side quests or completing other side content as you progress through the game. 

After unlocking Highwing, open the menu and select the Gear tab, then head for the Flying Mount option where you can see Highwing and change it for any other mounts you might have already unlocked. Mounts can be used from your Tool Wheel.

If you pre-ordered the game, you might remember the package mentioning an Onix Hippogryph. This feathery fellow named Calligo is automatically obtained alongside Highwing, and you can immediately swap the white Hippogryph for it. If you bought the Dark Arts Pack, the Thestral Sepulchria will also be present here. You cannot unlock those two in another way.

But there’s a fourth, final mount available, and that’s the Graphorn, obtained through the optional San Bakar’s Trial, in which you’ll have to face and capture the creature all by yourself. By conquering the trial, this magical beast will now be all yours to ride.

Each mount seems to be equal in speed, so you can use whichever you like the most, as either the legendary giant birds or the creature known as an omen of misfortune will get you anywhere you need to be quick.
