Hogwarts Legacy Marunweem Lake: Where To Find All Ancient Magic Hotspots

April 2, 2023

Hogwarts Legacy Marunweem Lake Ancient Magic Hotspots are side activities you can complete while exploring the southeastern lake area, that is, if you are aiming for 100% completion.

By clearing the magic pools, you can also complete Challenges and unlock extra Ancient Magic Slots. Check your progress from the Exploration tab of the Challenges menu.

However, before going for the Ancient Magic Hotspots, you need to complete the Percival Rackham’s Trial main quest.

In the guide below, we’ll be focusing on the Hogwarts Legacy Marunweem Lake Ancient Magic Hotspots side activities, and we’ll explain where to find them and how to complete them.

Like for all the Ancient Magic Hotspots in Hogwarts Legacy, you’ll need to find some runes to clear the Marunweem Lake magic pools.

As such, we’ll go over both side activities to help you complete them quickly.

Ancient Magic Hotspot #1: Next To A Tombstone

The first Hogwarts Legacy Marunweem Lake Ancient Magic Hotspot is found on the east side of the region. You have the exact location pinpointed on our map.

The quickest way to the magic pool is to fast travel to the Coastal Mine Floo Flame and head southwest.

You’ll find the Hotspot next to a tombstone with a shield leaning on it at the said location.

To continue, interact with the magic pool and look up toward the north to see the first magic rune.

You can easily get the rune with the help of your flying Broom.

Then get back to the magic pool and position yourself on the road west, facing the ruins.

You should see a gate and a load hanging from the ceiling above it.

Cast Revelio to see a weak spot you can hit with a basic attack to drop the load.

Now go in front of the gate, destroy the two crates to the right, and cast Depulso while aiming at the mechanism.

The gate should now be opened, and you can pick up the second rune needed for Marunweem Lake Ancient Magic Hotspot #1.

For the third rune, turn toward the southwest from the previous gate and cast Reparo while aiming at the wooden boards on the ground.

Then, get on your Broom, fly to the newly repaired wooden platform, and get the last rune to clear the pool of magic.

Ancient Magic Hotspot #2: Under A Tower

For the second Hogwarts Legacy Marunweem Lake Ancient Magic Hotspot, you have to head to the Marunweem Bridge on the west side of the area.

There is a Floo Flame you can use if you want to fast travel directly at the bridge.

The magic pool is located under the tower on the southeastern end of the bridge.

Interact with the Hotspot, then get on your Broom and fly to the first magic rune on the wooden platform to the north.

Then fly on the other side of the tower to reach a small locked gate leading inside the building. Note that you also have one of the 2 Marunweem Lake Landing Platforms on top of the tower.

You now have to pick the level 3 lock to head inside the tower and obtain the second rune. To do so, you’ll need the upgraded version of Alohomora, learned during The Man Behind The Moons side quest.

Finally, the third rune is on a small boat in the water west of the tower, and you can get to it by flying on your Broom one more time.

After you pick up the last rune, you clear the second magic pool.

Well done, our wizard/witch friend! You’ve managed to find and complete both Hogwarts Legacy Marunweem Lake Ancient Magic Hotspots side activities. However, there is plenty more to do in the video game developed by Avalanche Software, and if you run into trouble, you can always go to our Wiki Hub here.
