What is the Room of Requirement in Hogwarts Legacy?

The Room of Requirement is a unique room in Hogwarts Legacy that allows you to create your own living space. Rather than a static room that doesn’t change, you can customize it however you wish. Everything about the room, from furniture and decorations to the walls and ceiling, can vary according to how you design it. You can also add items to the room, making it as full or empty as you’d like.

The Room of Requirement isn’t entirely cosmetic, though. You can also add important functional items, including a potion station, small gardens, and a loom that helps upgrade your equipment. In other words, it’s an area you can frequently revisit to change its physical appearance and access essential resources you’ll use throughout the game. The main downside is that you don’t have unlimited access to these changes, as there are budget and Moonstone requirements for these items.

If you’re familiar with the Harry Potter franchise, you may already recognize the Room of Requirement showcased in Hogwarts Legacy. While it takes a few books and movies to learn its importance, it serves a similar purpose: transforming itself for those in great need. While this slightly differs in Hogwarts Legacy, the idea of being able to completely warp and change this room to what you need remains.

Hogwarts Legacy will be available on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch through the official website. If you’re interested in learning more about the game, check out When Does Hogwarts Legacy Take Place, and Will Hogwarts Legacy Have Multiplayer Co-Op?
