The choice is yours!

🔍📜 After clearing the camp, use the powerful Revelio spell to uncover hidden clues in Hogwarts Legacy. Your magical senses will lead you to discover Rowland Oakes’s Journal and a mysterious Map, offering hints about the elusive trade location.

Upon closer inspection, the map reveals various landmarks that will guide your path to the trade location where Adelaide’s uncle is being held captive. You’ll also notice a river connecting the campsite to the trade location.

🌪✨ To reach the trade location quickly, use the Korrow Ruins Floo Flame to instantly teleport there. Expect fierce resistance from Goblins, which you’ll need to vanquish before proceeding. In case you haven’t discovered the Flame yet, summon your broom and head southwest from the campsite, following the river until the ruins come into view.
