Hogwarts Legacy Phoenix Location

Finding a phoenix location in Hogwarts Legacy is a tall order. You might think that, like all other beasts, it has its own den that you can discover. However, that’s not the case at all. The phoenix is an exceptionally rare creature and you have to do the legwork before you can even attempt to capture the fiery bird. Here’s how it’s supposed to go.

Where to Find Phoenix in Hogwarts Legacy

To find the location of a phoenix in Hogwarts Legacy, you actually have to do several side quests for Deek. That’s the house elf that’s hiding in the Room of Requirements and that gives you the quest called “The Elf, the Nab-Sack, and the Loom.” You know, the one you need to complete in order to get the nab-sack in the first place, aka the implement you need to catch beasts in the first place. Anyway, once you’re done with that mission, you can talk to Deek again, since he has a few more tasks for you. Specifically, his quests are called “The Plight of the House-Elf” and “Foal of the Dead.” After those two comes “Phoenix Rising.”

As you might imagine, to find the phoenix location in Hogwarts Legacy, you need to do that last quest. It will take you to the Highlands and a place appropriately named Phoenix Mountain Cave. Before you enter, know that the phoenix will absolutely put up a fight. It does not want to go into that nab-sack. So, arm yourself the best spells you have. After you manage to bring the beast down, you can safely capture it. From then on, you can visit it in your Vivarium, take care of it and take the phoenix feathers it drops to upgrade your stuff. I don’t think you can breed it, though, not even when you get the breeding pen.
