How to unlock the House chest in Hogwarts Legacy and find all the dodgy

 How to find all the ingenious keys, open every cabinet of the faculty and unlock the chest of the selected house

Regardless of the house you choose, you can earn a special reward in the common room of your house at Hogwarts Legacy. You probably already noticed the house chest when you first descended into this room after the assignment ceremony. It looks strange and differs significantly from the rest of the chests in the game. Unlike the regular, legendary, and eye-chests you'll find in Hogwarts, Hogsmeade, and other parts of the game world, this container will require a special key to unlock. To open it, you need to find 16 tokens of your house. In order to start collecting these tokens, you will first need to start the accompanying side quest.

House tokens are locked inside cabinets scattered throughout Hogwarts. If you want to unlock this chest as soon as possible, we suggest you check out our guide below.

How to open the faculty chest

When you find a chest, don't waste time trying to open it. To unlock it, you need to collect 16 tokens of the faculty chosen during the allocation ceremony. to get house tokens, you need to unlock special wooden cabinets with a large round locking mechanism and a keyhole in the center. House cabinets can only be opened after completing the side quest "Cunning Keys", which can be activated in the Celestial Wing's Transfiguration Yard.

How to open the faculty chest

To open the cabinet, you need to find a flying key located somewhere near it. Use Revelio (R) to discover nearby points of interest. In this mode, all interactive and important objects will be highlighted, including flying keys, which are somewhat reminiscent of a dragonfly. Once you find the key, move closer and it will automatically fly to the closet. Follow him or move to the closet yourself if you know where he is (often you will find the key first, and only after the cabinet that he unlocks).

Go back to the closet and interact with it. When the flying key flies past the keyhole in the center, hit it quickly. The closet will open. Each such cabinet contains one faculty token. You need to find and unlock 16 cabinets to complete the challenge. After receiving all 16 tokens, you must place them in the chest and collect the faculty-related reward. You will unlock the unique shape of your house. Open your inventory, press the F key on any item of equipment, and you can choose its appearance (in this case, the characteristics and properties of the item will remain the same).
