One of the most useful tools you have at your disposal in Hogwarts Legacy is the Charmed Compass, which essentially guides you to your current quest objective. Since Hogwarts is such a confusing place and players can get lost within seconds, the Charmed Compass is almost a necessity in the early hours of the game. While players can use the Floo Flame locations to fast travel around the map, some quest objectives are still in difficult-to-reach spots.

In these cases, the Charmed Compass is one of your only ways to locate your current objective. If you want to find out how to take full advantage of this tool in Hogwarts Legacy, keep reading the guide below.

Using the Charmed Compass in Hogwarts Legacy

First, you’ll need to actually unlock the Charmed Compass. This happens after you have completed your first Charms class with Professor Ronen. After you use Accio to play shuffleboard outside with Natty, the class will end and you will gain access to the Charmed Compass.

To use the compass, all you need to do is look at your screen on the lefthand side. You should see your current quest along with a button. For us on PC, it was “V,” but controller players will see a different button. Whatever that button is, all you need to do is press it once. After doing this, your character will open a book and a magical gold line will appear in front of you.

This is the Charmed Compass in action, and all you need to do is follow it and you will reach your quest objective. Alternatively, if you hold the button that brings out the compass, you will see a more detailed explanation of your current quest. To get rid of that explanation, simply hold the button again. And that’s all you need to know about using the Charmed Compass in Hogwarts Legacy.
