Finding secrets in Hogwarts Legacy is usually a reason for joy, since most are references or nods to the saga of Harry Potter books and movies. However, you will not be happy when I show you what I found during my adventures around the castle. Neither more nor less than the object responsible for the saddest event in the entire history of the franchise.
WARNING: this post contains MAJOR SPOILERS from Hogwarts Legacy and Harry Potter.
Any Harry Potter fan plays Hogwarts Legacy with seventy eyes to find all the secrets, references and winks. When I first entered The Room of Requirement with Professor Weasley, I thought that this chaos of objects must hide the particular artifact I was hoping to find… and I did.
The Hogwarts Legacy Room of Requirement features the Vanishing Cabinet What we see in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. In case you don’t remember, this curious cabinet allowed Draco Malfoy to activate a magical passage with the Borgin and Burkes shop in Knockturn Alley. The Death Eaters used it to break into Hogwarts in search of Dumbledore. Finally, Snape was forced to kill him.
“Vanishing Cabinets were very popular during the First Wizarding War, in the event of a Death Eater attack, one could simply disappear into the cabinet until the danger had passed.” – Harry Potter Fandom Wiki.
Vanishing Cabinets were produced in “1980 or earlier,” according to the wiki. Hogwarts Legacy It is set at the end of the 19th century, in the 1890s. Although the figures do not quite add up, it does not completely rule out that it could be the same. We know that the Hogwarts Vanishing Cabinet has been at school for a long time and that he has received hundreds of outrages from students. Whether it is exactly the same or not is a matter of debate, but it is undeniable that their resemblance is incredible.
