The Locket’s Secret is the first quest of the second Hogwarts Legacy chapter in the video game developed by Avalanche Software, and it is also the shortest one you’ll have to complete while working on finding the Secret in the Restricted Section. Like Weasley After Class, The Locket’s Secret involves only a short conversation with Professor Fig, who wants to share his latest discovery with you.
The quest also involves a dialogue choice we’ll discuss in the following walkthrough, alongside the objectives you must complete. Although there are no rewards to be earned for completing this short quest, talking to Professor Fig is mandatory to progress the story.
Locket’s Secret becomes available only after you return from Hogsmeade, which means you’ll have to complete the Welcome To Hogsmeade main quest first. Furthermore, to be able to play this quest, you’ll have to read Professor Fig’s letter. It will arrive shortly after you return to the Common Room, and you’ll be notified by a message on your screen.
When this happens, open the Field Guide, navigate to the Owl Post Tab, and check Professor Fig’s letter.
It reads: “Come and see me. I’ve discovered something in the locket we found at Gringotts.” So, the good Professor wants to share his latest discovery with you. Let’s see how to find him.
Where To Find Professor Fig
Professor Fig is found in his Classroom in the Astronomy Wing. If you have already explored the Astronomy Wing and unlocked the Floo Flame, you can fast-travel to Professor Fig’s Classroom. If you didn’t explore the room, select the undiscovered Professor Fig’s Classroom Floo Flame from your map.
Now, return to the game and press Up on your DPad to summon the golden whisps guiding you to Fig’s Classroom. The Professor will wait for you inside his study at the top of the stairs pictured below.
If by any chance you arrive during the night, place yourself in front of the desk and press Square/X to wait for Fig. When he arrives, talk to him to trigger a discussion regarding the latest events in Hogsmeade.
You can ask Fig what he thinks about the Gringotts Goblins and their allegiance to Ranrok. Even though he says that he believes they are not involved, you may remember one particular guard you met when traveling to Vault 12. Now, tell Fig that Ranork and Rookwood want the locket, and he’ll tell you that he found an inscription on it.
After reading it, a strange map appeared; however, for Fig, the map shows only Hogwarts. That’s because Professor Fig can’t see Ancient Magic as you can. Hence, he called you to check if you could see something unusual on the map. Obviously, you can notice some traces of Ancient Magic surrounding a specific area on the map. And that area is the Restricted Section in the Library.
Unfortunately, Professor Fig won’t let you visit the Library just yet because it’s dangerous. As such, he’ll send you to Professor Hecat to practice and unlock a new Spell. Professor Hecat’s Assignment 1 becomes available now, and it’s the next quest you’ll need to complete the moment you exit Fig’s office.
