Hogwarts Legacy Climb the Battlements objective in The High Keep quest

If you need to climb the battlements in Hogwarts Legacy to complete The High Keep quest, you’ve come to the right place. This is a quest that comes at around the midpoint of the story, and it has players stumped.

The quest begins when you meet Natty near Falbarton Castle on the Hogwarts Legacy map. She asks for your help in retrieving a letter from the Dark Wizards. As the main gate is locked, you become separated from Natty, meaning you need to climb the walls of the battlements to enter the Gatehouse. It’s the first objective in The High Keep quest in Hogwarts Legacy, so here’s how to do it.

To the right of the bridge, there’s a gap which slopes down to a wooden wall. Scale this and use Revelio to reveal a hidden device. Use Depulso on the device to open the iron gate and reveal a chest.

Cast Wingardium Leviosa to move the chest outside to the broken wall, stand on the chest, and then use Levioso to raise it in place. Jump on top of it, then leap up to the gap in the wall.

Cast Depulso repeatedly on the device to raise the gate. Finally, use Accio on the golden handle to lower the gate, so Natty can join you. You can then continue onwards, climbing the structure until you reach the top. There are a few spots where you need to cast spells to continue ahead, but once you reach the top, you’ll fly away with the book while rescuing some Hippogriffs that you can add to your Hogwarts Legacy beasts collection.

The creator of the Harry Potter series, JK Rowling, has made a number of transphobic remarks on social media in recent years. Warner Bros. has the licence to make games based on Harry Potter. While the details of that deal aren’t publicly known, and WB Games says “J.K. Rowling is not directly involved in the creation of the game”, it is likely that, as the creator and owner of the Harry Potter IP, she will earn royalties from its sales.
