How To Find The Cursed Tomb Treasure in Hogwarts Legacy

The clues within this Map Fragment point you in the direction of the Tomb of Treachery which is located between the "Coastal Cavern" iconCoastal Cavern and "Poidsear Coast" iconPoidsear Coast. Once you’ve entered the Tomb, follow the narrow path along until you reach a dead end, then use "Confringo" iconConfringo on the webs to the left and continue down that path until you reach the butterfly puzzle.

(1 of 3) Go to the Tomb of Treachery and take the webbed path to the left

Enter the room on the right and you’ll find two butterflies. Shoot the one on the left with "Confringo" iconConfringo to remove more webs, then use "Lumos" iconLumos and bring them both to the door in the other room. For the third and final butterfly you’ll need to open up the room to the left by shooting the webs with "Confringo" iconConfringo, then use "Wingardium Leviosa" iconWingardium Leviosa and the block to the left and bring it closer to the back wall.

Climb up to find the Butterfly sitting in the corner, then use "Lumos" iconLumos and bring it back to the door to unlock it. Inside the next room you’ll be greeted by multiple "Inferius" iconInferius. You’ll need to use fire based spells, such as "Confringo" iconConfringo or "Incendio" iconIncendio to begin with, then you use more deadly attacks to finish them off. Take down one enemy at a time otherwise you’ll be fighting against multiple for a long time which will increase the risk of death.

(1 of 2) Take down the "Inferius" iconInferius

Take down the "Inferius" iconInferius (left), then use "Flipendo" iconFlipendo on the correct three tiles to reveal a chest. (right)

Once the room has been cleared you’ll see nine stone tiles in the center of the room. Equip "Flipendo" iconFlipendo, then you’ll want to stand in the northeast corner and use it on the following tiles: Bottom Left, Bottom Right, Top Middle. If done correctly a Chest will raise out the ground. Open it for the Treasure-Seeker’s Attire, then the quest will be completed!
