Hogwarts Legacy Feldcroft Region Merlin Trials are puzzles that, if you solve them, you also complete Challenges and get increased storage for your gear.
Check your progress from the Exploration tab of the Challenges menu, where you can also claim the inventory size upgrades.
It’s worth mentioning that if you solve all Merlin Trials in Hogwarts Legacy, you unlock the Merlin’s Beard! Trophy/Achievement.
However, before looking for the Trials, you must complete the Trials Of Merlin main quest and learn everything you need to know about the activity.
Also, the key to starting any Trial is the Mallowsweet Leaves which can be found in the open world and even grown at a potting table in the Room of Requirement.
For the second method of obtaining Mallowsweet Leaves, which is also the best, you’ll need to buy the Mallowsweet Seed Recipe from The Magic Neep shop in the Hogsmeade village.
Now, you should know that the Hogwarts Legacy Feldcroft Region Merlin Trials can be hard and may take you a while to figure them out; therefore, if you don’t want to waste time, make sure to check the guide below.
Hogwarts Legacy Feldcroft Region Merlin Trials Locations Map
First, you need to know where to find the Feldcroft Region Merlin Trials; as such, we’ve pinpointed their locations on the following map.
It’s important to know that if you get close to a Trial’s altar, its icon appears on your map, meaning you can track it for the exact location.
Furthermore, we’ll explain how to solve each puzzle in the same order as the one on the previous map.
Merlin Trial #1: In A Medium Bandit Camp
The first Feldcroft Region Merlin Trial is in a Medium Bandit Camp southwest of the West Hogwarts Valley Floo Flame.
The fastest way to get to the Trial’s altar is to fast travel to the Floo Flame, then get on your Broom and gain some serious altitude to reach the top of the mountain southwest, where you should see the Bandit Camp.
Look for the altar near some stairs in the southwestern part of the camp.
Now start the Trial and look around the altar for 5 stones that get highlighted in blue if you cast Revelio, just like in the next image.
To complete the Trial, you need to destroy the stones using the Confringo spell.
Merlin Trial #2: In A Small Bandit Camp
For the second Hogwarts Legacy Feldcroft Region Merlin Trial, you have to go to the Small Bandit Camp northeast of the North Feldcroft Floo Flame.
There is one of the Feldcroft Region Ancient Magic Hotspots close by if you want to check it out as well.
Once you reach the location of Trial #2, interact with the altar and cast Revelio to highlight 3 stones nearby.
These stones are different from the ones in Trial #1 because they are made of 2 parts.
To complete the second Trial, you have to flip the top parts of the stones so that the drawings on them match with the ones on the bottom parts.
You need to use the Flipendo spell to complete the task.
Note that the stones get flipped differently depending on your position toward them.
Practice a little with Flipendo to learn how to flip the stones, then match the drawings to complete the Trial.
Merlin Trial #3: West Of The North Feldcroft Floo Flame
The next Feldcroft Region Merlin Trial is in the first Small Bandit Camp west of the North Feldcroft Floo Flame.
After starting the Trial, go up the stairs to the southeast, then jump from stone to stone to solve the puzzle.
On the second stone, you can see some barrels you must destroy with basic attacks to continue.
Reach the fifth stone without touching the ground, and you complete the Trial.
Merlin Trial #4: On The Edge Of A Cliff
Hogwarts Legacy Feldcroft Region Merlin Trial #4 is on the edge of a cliff west of the previous puzzle.
Don’t forget to check your map for the Merlin Trial icon if you have problems finding the altar.
Upon starting the Trial, cast Revelio and look in close vicinity for 5 stones highlighted in blue that you must destroy with the Confringo spell.
Merlin Trial #5: By The Water
The fifth Feldcroft Region Merlin Trial is found by the water north of Rookwood Castle.
When you reach the spot, start the Trial and look around for 9 balls you have to destroy with basic attacks.
Each ball stands on a small pillar, and you can see them easier if you cast Revelio.
The balls are split into 3 groups of 3, one close to the southeast of the altar, another uphill southwest, and the last across the water to the west.
Merlin Trial #6: On The Coast
Another Merlin Trial in the Feldcroft Region is on the coast, southwest of the previous altar, at the sixth location marked on our map.
Find the altar and start the Trial for which you’ll have to light 3 torches using Confringo.
After you light the first torch, you have a short time in which you can light the other two, so move fast.
Also, we suggest you start with the tallest torch and work your way to the smallest.
You can see one torch east of the altar, another southeast, and the last southwest.
Merlin Trial #7: Northwest Of The Rookwood Castle Floo Flame
The seventh Hogwarts Legacy Feldcroft Region Merlin Trial is southwest of Trial #6 or northwest of the Rookwood Castle Floo Flame.
Once you start the Trial, you have to turn west of the altar and go near the edge to spot 4 stones in the water.
You know the drill, jump from stone to stone to solve the puzzle.
Merlin Trial #8: Northeast Of Rookwood Castle
For the next Feldcroft Region Merlin Trial, you have to go northeast of Rookwood Castle, at the eighth location pinpointed on the map above.
This time you have to rebuild 3 stone statues close to the altar. Cast Revelio to see the remains highlighted in blue.
One statue can be rebuilt on the rock northeast of the altar by casting Reparo while aiming at the remains.
Do the same for the statue northwest of the altar and the one north.
Merlin Trial #9: Behind A Big Rock
Now head southeast of the Feldcroft village to reach the altar of Hogwarts Legacy Feldcroft Region Merlin Trial #9 and then interact with it.
The altar is behind a big rock, and if you have problems finding it, check your map because you might have passed close to the Trial, revealing its icon.
To solve the puzzle, you have to destroy 9 balls with basic attacks; you can see all of them if you look northeast of the altar and cast Revelio, as shown in the following screenshot.
Merlin Trial #10: Northwest Of The South Feldcroft Floo Flame
The tenth Merlin Trial available in the Feldcroft Region will take you northwest of the South Feldcroft Floo Flame.
To solve the Trial’s puzzle, you must use Confringo to destroy the 5 stones that get highlighted in blue when casting Revelio.
It would be best to get on the hill northeast of the altar because you can see all the stones from here if you cast Revelio, just like in the next image.
Don’t forget that Revelio allows you to see the stones even through objects.
Merlin Trial #11: Next To The Water
For another Hogwarts Legacy Feldcroft Region Merlin Trial, head southeast of the South Feldcroft Floo Flame, and you’ll find the altar next to the water.
Upon interacting with the altar, go northeast to see a hole in the ground, then go uphill on your Broom, and you’ll spot a boulder high on the edge of a cliff on the left side.
To complete the Trial, you have to use Depulso to guide the boulder to the hole.
Merlin Trial #12: North Of The Feldcroft Catacomb Floo Flame
Feldcroft Region Merlin Trial #12 is located a short distance north of the Feldcroft Catacomb Floo Flame, fairly close to one of the Feldcroft Region Balloons sets.
Trial #12 requires you to destroy another 5 stones with the Confringo spell. Cast Revelio to spot the stones easier while scouting the area.
Two stones are southwest of the altar, one east, another northeast, and the last on a big rock northwest.
Merlin Trial #13: Next To Some Ruins
The thirteenth Hogwarts Legacy Feldcroft Region Merlin Trial puzzle can be solved next to some ruins east of the Feldcroft Catacomb Floo Flame.
Interact with the altar at the thirteenth location marked on our map and look for 3 stones with diamond-shaped holes.
To solve the puzzle, you must find 3 groups of green fireflies and bring them to the stones. To make the fireflies follow you, cast Lumos near them.
The stones are really close to the altar, one to the east, another southeast, and the last southwest.
As for the fireflies, you have to go a little further; one group is on a cliff southwest of the altar, another downhill south, and the last is high on the mountain northeast.
Merlin Trial #14: In Another Small Bandit Camp
For the next Feldcroft Region Merlin Trial, you must head to the Small Bandit Camp northeast of the previous altar.
Go ahead and start the Trial, then look for yet another 5 stones you must destroy with the Confringo spell.
It would be best to get on your Broom, fly a little to the southwest of the altar, and cast Revelio to spot all 5 stones, like in the following image.
After destroying the stones, you complete the Trial.
Merlin Trial #15: Next To A River
Hogwarts Legacy Feldcroft Region Merlin Trial #15 will take you west of Irondale.
Look for the altar next to the river at the said location, then start the Trial.
Next, you have to quickly light 3 torches using Confringo.
You’ll find one torch behind the stone bridge northeast of the altar, another west, and the last on a rock in the river southeast.
First, light the tallest torch and end with the smallest.
Merlin Trial #16: Next To A Scarecrow
The last Merlin Trial in the Feldcroft Region can be completed right in Irondale, and you’ll find the altar next to a scarecrow northwest of the hamlet’s Floo Flame.
This time you need to destroy 9 balls using basic attacks. Just like for Trial #5, the balls are split into 3 groups of 3.
One group is next to the house south of the altar, another uphill northwest, and the last on the stone fence east.
