Hogwarts Legacy Moth Mirrors Explained

The Moth Mirror puzzle is a unique challenge that can be encountered while exploring the world, unlike other puzzles or collectibles that require specific quests to access them.

However, there is a side quest called "Like a Moth to a Frame" that introduces you to the puzzle mechanics. Completing this quest will help you understand how to solve the puzzle and what to expect when encountering Moth Mirrors in the game.

While it's not necessary to complete this quest to start searching for the mirrors, it can certainly help you understand the puzzle mechanics and make your exploration more efficient. So, if you want to get a head start on the Moth Mirror puzzles and understand how to solve them, consider taking on the "Moth to a Frame" side quest in Hogwarts Legacy.

How To Complete "Like A Moth To A Frame"

To get started with the Moth Mirror puzzles in Hogwarts Legacy, you can find Lenora Everleigh standing in front of a Moth Mirror in the Library Annex: Central Hall area. Speak to her to begin the side quest called "Like a Moth to a Frame," which will teach you how to solve these unique puzzles.

Once you've completed the quest, you'll have a clear understanding of the mechanics involved in solving Moth Mirror puzzles.

To summarize, all you need to do is find the missing flying magical insects that are needed to complete each puzzle, which will allow you to access the hidden areas visible in the mirrors.

When you encounter a Moth Mirror in Hogwarts Legacy, you can cast the Lumos spell to reveal a clue to a nearby location. Make your way to that location and you'll find a flying moth. The moth you need to catch for the "Like a Moth to a Frame" side quest is located on the opposite side of the hall from the Moth Mirror.

Use the Lumos spell again to attract the flying moth and bring it back to the Moth Mirror.
This will complete the puzzle and spawn a Field Guide Page that you can pick up. It's worth noting that every time you solve a Moth Mirror puzzle in Hogwarts Legacy, you'll receive another Field Guide Page.

So put your puzzle-solving skills to the test and get ready to explore the mysteries of Hogwarts Legacy!
