    What Is the Room of Requirement?

    The Room of Requirement is a secret room in Hogwarts that’s said to only appear to those who are in need of it. It’s a seemingly sentient room that will constantly adjust to the student’s needs. In Hogwarts Legacy, the main character uses the Room of Requirement as his base of sorts.

    You’ll be able to do things such as brew potions, grow plants, and later on, create a sanctuary for the animals you rescue in the Room of Requirement. You can also decorate the room by adorning it with furniture, paintings, wall decor, and more.

    How to Get the Room of Requirement

    The Room of Requirement will automatically unlock for you as you progress through the main story. About halfway through the game, you’ll receive a main quest called The Room of Requirement. This is around the same time when you’ll have to complete your first Keeper Trial.

    Simply do the quest, which you can’t miss, and you’ll be led to the Astronomy Tower. See the quest through to the end and you’ll have access to the Room of Requirement moving forward.

    You can then make upgrades to the room by completing a series of side quests involving Deek. You’ll be notified when these quests become available via an Owl from Professor Weasley.

    Item Categories

    As soon as the Room of Requirement becomes available to you, you’ll also learn the Transfiguration spell. This spell allows you to put items in the room. The items in the Room of Requirement range from useful items such as Potion Stations and Potting Tables to simple decorations such as rugs and statues.

    The following are the items you can place in the Room of Requirement.


    Potion Stations from Hogwarts Legacy.

    These are items that allow you to brew potions in the Room of Requirement. Another category of items that fall under Potions is Hopping Pots. These can continuously brew random potions over time. The Potion Stations and Hopping Pots come in different designs and sizes. Some potions can only be brewed on a certain size of Potion Station.


    Potting Tables from Hogwarts Legacy.

    These are items you can use to grow plants. There is a myriad of Potting Tables you can build in your Room of Requirement. Like the items under Potions, they also come in different sizes and designs and some plants require a certain size before they can be used.

    You can also find Composters and Chopping Stations under this category. Composters are used to produce fertilizers while Chopping Stations can generate plant ingredients.


    The Desk of Description from Hogwarts Legacy.

    These are tables that have unique functions. There are only three items that fall under Utility, and one of them comes in different designs.

    You can use the Desk of Description to identify unknown gear. The next item, the Enchanted Loom, can upgrade your gear and give them traits. The last is the Material Refiner, which generates Moonstone.

    Wall Hangings
