How to Unlock Animal Puzzle Doors in Hogwarts Legacy

Each animal puzzle door has triangle diagrams (usually two) featuring several beat symbols, numbers, and question marks. The key is to add up the three symbols on the extremities of the triangle to get the number in the middle. Let’s take a look at an example.

So, if we are aiming to get a total of 9, as represented by the 9 in the middle of the triangle. We know there’s a 2 from the number 2 on the left. Using the Arithmancy parchment, we know that the Three-Headed Serpent’s number is 3. So, 2+3 = 5. We need a symbol corresponding to the number 4 to get 2+3+4 = 9, which is the Second Owl, according to the parchment.

Next to each puzzle, you’ll find dials you can interact with to change the symbol. Here, we’ll use the one to the left of the door and turn it to the Second Owl.

That’s all there is to it, really! So, once you’ve entered the answer, a door where the puzzle is should open and you will be able to go through.
