Hogwarts Legacy Diricawl locations and where to find dens

Here's where to quickly find Hogwarts Legacy Diricawl locations and how to capture them to complete the quest for Professor Howin.

Struggling to find Hogwarts Legacy Diricawls? You need this flighty bird to complete an assignment from Professor Howin to obtain the powerful Bombarda spell, but as they can be slightly aloof, here’s where to find Diricawl dens quickly.

Diricawls are one of the many Hogwarts Legacy beasts in the open-world game, and can be used to make money in Hogwarts Legacy or to complete quests. You can also house them in the Room of Requirements once you unlock the Vivarium in Hogwarts Legacy, but you need to catch them first. Here’s where you can find the Hogwarts Legacy Diricawl locations.

Hogwarts Legacy Diricawl den locations

To find Diricawls quickly, it’s best to use your Hogwarts Legacy broom to access these locations. You need to sneak up on the Diricawl – use Disillusionment to go invisible and cast either Levioso or Arresto Momentum to stop the Diricawl from fleeing, You can then use the Nab-Sack to grab them quickly, otherwise, they’ll disappear if spooked.

The best Hogwarts Legacy Diricawl location is in Hogwarts Valley. Fly to Lower Hogsfield where you’ll find a Diricawl den, or use the Keenbridge Floo Flame to fast travel nearby. You can also find Diricawls in Poidsear Coast, Marunweem Lake, and Clagmar Coast.

That’s where to find Diricawl nests in Hogwarts Legacy, but they’re far from the rarest beasts to find in the RPG game.

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.
