Hogwarts Legacy player finds incredible new open-world encounter

Hogwarts Legacy player finds incredible new open-world encounter

Hogwarts Legacy is a tale of two halves. In terms of its open world, it largely feels repetitive and underdeveloped, with far too many caves or ruins of the same nature repeated.

It’s a totally different story though when you visit Hogwarts castle itself or the nearby hamlet of Hogsmeade. In these locales, it's clear that developers paid such acute attention to detail.

Should a sequel to Hogwarts Legacy be announced, and that feels likely given its immense financial success, it would be nice to see this level of detail extended throughout the game - even if, dare I say, that means slightly cutting down on the size of the world.

Hogsmeade is so detailed that to this day, players continue to find new little design choices and features to observe.

Recently, one player discovered that one shop features three totally different interiors depending on which door you enter via. If that’s not pure wizardry, I don’t know what is.

In this latest find, one player found out that there’s a benefit to eavesdropping on Hogsmeade’s residents and visitors.

This detail was spotted by Reddit user Shermutt who said, “Sorry for yet another Garlick crush post, but I realised that if you listen to the NPCs in Hogsmeade long enough, you learn that even they know what’s up.”

If you don’t know, Mirabel Garlick is the herbology professor in Hogwarts Legacy and she has plenty of admirers in the fan base. So too, it seems, does she in Hogsmeade.

The accompanying video shows one Hogsmeade resident saying, “The herbology professor at Hogwarts could charm the scales off a dragon. I wonder what her favourite flower is?”

It’s a nice touch from Hogwarts Legacy’s developers - and it’s good to know that the game’s residents are just as fond of Garlick as we are.

If only they’d drop details on that teased upcoming update.
