How to Open Hogwarts Legacy Unicorn Door in Clock Tower

The Unicorn Door is just one of the doors that are located in the Clock Tower. They correspond to the round symbols you will see around the large central window there. These are, from left to right: Unicorn, Owl, Twin Dragons, and Scarab. Each of these symbols corresponds to a door in the Clock Tower. But for the purposes of this guide, we are only going to focus on the Unicorn Door. To open it, you are first going to need the Arresto Momentum spell. You can get this spell from completing Madam Kogawa’s Assignment 2.

Once you have obtained the spell, go to the Clock Tower and stand directly in front of the swinging pendulum. You need to position yourself so that you see when the pendulum crosses over the round symbols – and the Unicorn symbol in particular. The pendulum isn’t too fast, but you still need to time it right. When it has swung directly in front of the Unicorn symbol, quickly cast the Arresto Momentum spell at the pendulum. This will freeze it in place for a short while. Then run to the Unicorn Door to the right, and you will see that you can now unlock it. You’re now free to explore what’s inside.
