Where to find all mirrors and moths (butterflies) in Hogwarts Legacy

 Location of each mirror and moth to activate it

Hogwarts Legacy contains many interesting secrets and puzzles. One of the types of puzzles that you will encounter in the game is mirrors with moths. You need to find the mirror itself and the magic moth, which is located in the place depicted on the mirror. In this guide, we will tell you where to find all the mirrors on the grounds of Hogwarts Castle and Hogsmeade.

Unlike most other puzzles or collectibles, the side quest "Like a Moth to a Flame" is optional in order to find mirrors and moths. However, you can do this to familiarize yourself with the mechanics of solving the puzzle. The task is taken from the girl from the central hall of the extension to the library at the very beginning of the game.

Essentially, the solution to the puzzle looks like this:

  1. Use Lumos on the dark mirror and it will reveal a clue to the moth's location.
  2. Find this place, you will find a flying moth there. In the side quest, he will be in the opposite part of the central hall. The marker will lead you to the right place.
  3. Use Lumos to attract the moth and bring it back to the mirror. A manual page will appear in front of the mirror. Each mirror will allow you to get one page, which is required to complete the tests.
  4. The moth marker will only appear in the side quest. After this point, you will have to independently study the clues on the mirrors and look for moths. Finally, keep in mind that some areas at the beginning of the game are inaccessible. In some cases, you will have to use the Alohomora spell. Moreover, the spell needs to be improved in order to break the locks of the second and third levels.
