Hogwarts Legacy North Hogwarts Region Ancient Magic Hotspot is one of the 20 magic pools scattered throughout the open world of the video game developed by Avalanche Software.
This pool of magic is mandatory if you want to achieve 100% completion of the North Hogwarts Region.
Clearing multiple Ancient Magic Hotspots will complete Challenges and increase the capacity of your Ancient Magic Meter, which means you’ll use those big damage spells more frequently.
You can claim the upgrades for your Ancient Magic Meter from the Exploration tab of the Challenges menu.
Also, it’s important to know that you can start looking for these Magic Hotspots, which count as collectibles, after completing the Percival Rackham’s Trial main quest.
Now, let’s see how to clear the Hogwarts Legacy North Hogwarts Region Ancient Magic Hotspot because it can be tricky and can cause you problems.
Hogwarts Legacy North Hogwarts Region Ancient Magic Hotspot Location Map
First, it would be best to check the North Hogwarts Region map below, where we’ve pinpointed the exact location of the Ancient Magic Hotspot in this northern region.
As you can see, you have to go to the east side of the region to find the magic pool in front of some ruins between the East North Hogwarts Region and The Collector’s Cave Floo Flames. Once you get close to the Magic Hotspot, it should appear on your map, making it even easier to find.
However, the tricky part is just getting started because you have to clear Hogwarts Legacy North Hogwarts Region Ancient Magic Hotspot by finding 3 Magic Runes.
How To Complete The North Hogwarts Region Ancient Magic Hotspot
Before looking for the Runes, you must interact with the magic pool and burn the thorns blocking your way into the ruins.
To get rid of the thorns, you should use Incendio, unlocked after Professor Hecat’s Assignment 1.
You can pick up the first North Hogwarts Region Ancient Magic Hotspot Magic Rune from the stone pedestal in front of the newly cleared entrance.
The other two Runes are under you, and to drop down to the underground, you have to go behind the pedestal and destroy the wooden boards covering the hole here.
The next Rune is found in the northwestern corner of this underground room, which seems to be a tomb.
For the last Rune, you need to pull the handle on the northeastern part of the room. To do so, you need to use the Accio spell learned while completing the Charms Class main quest.
After pulling the handle, a small secret room gets revealed on the left side, and here you have the last Magic Rune.
Now the fastest way to get out of this tomb is to fast travel, and you can go ahead with it because you’ve already cleared the Hogwarts Legacy North Hogwarts Region Ancient Magic Hotspot. But don’t forget to check our Wiki Hub here for additional help on other collectibles, or quests, and puzzles.
