During the halfway point of Hogwarts Legacy, you will attend your first flying access and gain access to your very own broom. These are sold at the Sprintwitches Sporting Needs shop in Hogsmeade, with the owner, Albie Weekes, providing you with several options. Of course, these brooms don’t come free, so you will need to make some extra gold if you want to buy one. After you have purchased your broom in Hogwarts Legacy, Weekes will talk about certain upgrades for it. However, beyond that, you seemingly don’t get to upgrade your broom even though there is an option for it in the Gear menu.
In this guide, we’ll be showing you exactly how you can upgrade your broom in Hogwarts Legacy so you can fly past the competition on any flying test.
Upgrade your broom in Hogwarts Legacy
When you first talk to Albie Weekes in Sprintwitches, you will be tasked with testing out some broom enhancements at the Hogwarts flying speed trial. However, this does not count as a broom upgrade. The only time you will legitimately receive an upgrade is when you get a side quest from Weekes that specifies an upgrade.
The first of these comes after your first trial in the main story. As you’re waiting for your “search for the final keeper,” Weekes will contact you and ask you to come to his shop. Here, you will be given a new broom upgrade and tasked with flying to a new speed trial to race Imelda Reyes. Win the race, return to Weekes, and the upgrade is yours for the taking.
If you go to your Gear menu, you will see that now one of the three broom upgrade slots is filled. To fill the other two, simply keep going back to Sprintwitches and take on a new speed trial for Weekes. This will happen two more times before Hogwarts Legacy concludes. If you win the trials, Weekes will reward you with a new upgrade that allows your broom to fly faster for longer.
