If you’re interested in keeping beasts in Hogwarts Legacy, or just want to explore every area of interest that the game has to offer, here’s how to get more Vivariums.

How to get more Vivariums in Hogwarts Legacy

There are several Vivariums in Hogwarts Legacy, which may also be referred to as different Biomes due to their differing environments. These beast Vivariums are ideal for storing beasts you have rescued and provide them a new place to live.

So, now to how to unlock these Vivariums – or additional Biomes. Advancing through some main quests and side quests will help you learn all about Vivariums, which we’ll be going in to more detail about. The Elf, The Nab-Sack, and the Loom is the 24th main quest of Hogwarts Legacy, and the first one in which you’ll see a Vivarium. Once you’ve completed that, collecting beasts and completing a couple more side quests will open up access to additional Vivariums.

Speaking to Deek the house-elf in the Room of Requirement is a good way of making progress when it comes to Vivariums.

Here are a few which you can (or rather, your beasts) enjoy, as well as which quests will unlock them in order of appearance.

  • Forest Vivarium – The Elf, The Nab-Sack, and the Loom (main quest)
  • Coastal Vivarium – Collect 10 beasts
  • Swamp Vivarium – Foal of the Dead (side quest)
  • Grassland Vivarium – Phoenix Rising (side quest)

Why you should use Vivariums in Hogwarts Legacy

Vivariums, as you may know by now, are used for storing beasts. As you have a limited amount of space to carry beasts you rescue out on your adventures in Hogwarts Legacy, you’ll want somewhere to keep them. Even though you can sell your unwanted beasts to a vendor, there is merit in nurturing them in your Vivarium(s).

Whether you’re using to magic to conjure up some Beast Feed, or even a Beast Petting Brush, it’s a lot of fun to take care of these varied (and sometimes objectively cute) beasts. You can breed beasts (apart from the Phoenix) for an ever-lasting supply of useful materials. We’ve put together a list of those materials below, which will come in handy for upgrading gear and traits.

  • Diriclaw Feather
  • Fwooper Feather
  • Toadwarts
  • Graphorn Horn
  • Hippogriff Feather
  • Jobberknoll Feather
  • Kneazle Fur
  • Mooncalf Fur
  • Niffler Fur
  • Phoenix Feather
  • Puffskein Fur
  • Thestral Hair
  • Unicorn Hair

These materials are sourced from the beast associated with them – we’ve added a list of beasts in our FAQs below.
