How to enter the principal's office and reach the highest point in Hogwarts Legacy

You may have played Hogwarts Legacy for a few hours (or even beat the game), but the Warner Bros and Avalanche title hides some secrets. And that’s not to mention the always coveted achievements and trophies.

Specifically, there is one that invites us to discover the highest place in hogwarts. No, it is not about reaching the top of the highest tower, but we could say that we will almost touch the sky of Hogwarts.

Is it possible to reach the high point of the castle? I hope so only through a main mission (the first time), and if you know where to look.

In Hogwarts Legacy there is no Albus Dumbledore, but instead we have Sirius Black’s ancestor, Phineas Nigellus Black. In this guide we teach you how to enter your private office.

The highest point of Hogwarts: how to discover it

If you’ve seen the Harry Potter movies, then you know that the highest point of Hogwarts is in the office of the school principal. In the case of the film saga, it was Dumbledore’s private study.

Of course, Hogwarts Legacy rescues this iconic place, although changing the figure of Dumbledore for that of Phineas Nigel Blackthe headmaster of Hogwarts at the time.

You should know that to get a trophy/achievement in the game, it is mandatory to reach the highest point of the castle. But first things first: how do we get into Black’s office?

It is impossible to enter until we reach the main mission Polyjuice Plot. Professor Fig orders us to sneak into the director’s office. For this he gives us Polyjuice Potion, which will temporarily turn us into Phineas Nigellus Black.

Don’t worry, because the director will be busy while you complete this mission. The quickest way to get to Black’s office is via the Llama Floo in the trophy room.

Before, we must talk to Black’s house-elf, Scrope, to give us the password to access the office. Once we have it, go to Professor Fig’s office to inform him of your success.

In case you have not discovered this flame, just go to the top of the Grand Staircase and you will already have it located. From there, continue down the hall until you reach a metal door. You need Alohomora level 1 to open it.

Go up the stairs you see below. Upon reaching the top, you will find a long corridor full of bronze statues. Go straight until you see a statue of a guardian.

Say the password Scrope gave you, and the gatekeeper will let you through. Go up the stairs until you reach Principal Black’s office.

Once you are in the office, make sure you talk to Niamh Fitzgerald (she’s at the desk)collect the field pages, and open all the chests.

The main quest is now over. But how to reach the highest point of Hogwarts Legacy? For it you need to have Alohomora at maximum level. If so, return to Principal Black’s office following the same directions.

Next to Black’s desk, behind a mirror, a secret door is hidden. You must open it with Alohomora, and then you will be outside the castle. Go up the stairs, straight ahead.

Ready. At the end of the path is the private study of Phineas Nigellus Black. Hogwarts Legacy will reward you with a trophy/achievement, and you can now boast that you have reached the top of the castle.
