Hogwarts Legacy is the best game released this here so far. I really enjoy playing with it and for this reason I’m creating few tutorials about the game (the previous was about the magical cat). On my YouTube channel, you can follow me in the game all the time.
Hogwarts Legacy has 16 House Token Locations, also known as Daedalian Keys. Finding all House Tokens is required to complete Side Quest: The Daedalian Keys and to open the House Chest in your Dorm. This will unlock a unique outfit for your house which is one of the best in the game. Completing All Side Quests is also needed for The Good Samaritan trophy & achievement.
None of the House Tokens are missable. You can still collect all of them after the story in free-roam. They only spawn after starting The Daedalian Keys side quest. All of them are within Hogwarts Castle. To collect the last House Token you must have finished Main Quest House Token #25: The Caretaker’s Lunar Lament, which unlocks the ability to open Level 1 Door Locks. So while this quest can be started very early, it is not possible to complete it until much later in the story.
The way House Tokens work is that you must first find a flying key (“Daedalian Key”). This is always near the cabinet that contains the House Token. Then the key will automatically fly to the cabinet. You can follow the golden trail the key leaves behind to see the path to the cabinet. Interact with the cabinet and slap the key when it hovers over the lock. This opens it and you get 1 house token per cabinet. These are not marked on the map and that’s why they can be particularly tricky to find. Always use Revelio (D-Pad Right) to mark the key and cabinet in blue color, this makes them much easier to spot.
It’s recommended to unlock all Floo Flames (Fast Travel Points) in Hogwarts first. We will use these as reference points for each token location.
How to Start The Daedalian Keys Quest
First, talk to Nellie Oggspire in Hogwarts -> The Astronomy Wing -> Transfiguration Courtyard. This is available after Main Quest #7: Welcome to Hogsmeade. The first House Token is part of the quest objective. Then you must find the remaining 15 yourself.
All House Token Locations in Hogwarts Legacy
House Token #1 – The Astronomy Wing > Astronomy Tower
The first key is automatically marked by a quest icon on the map. It’s in the Astronomy Classroom, but first you need to grab the key. From Astronomy Tower fast travel point walk upstairs and the key will automatically start flying downstairs to the Astronomy Classroom. Use Revelio to mark it blue and interact with the cabinet. Then interact with the flying key at the cabinet and slap it into the lock.
House Token #2 – The Astronomy Wing > Defence Against the Dark Arts Classroom
Fast travel to “Defence Against the Dark Arts Classroom”. From where you spawn, go down the stairs on the left. The key will be straight ahead, in front of the rhino skeleton. Go near it to make it fly up. Now go back upstairs where you came from, take the path left to find the cabinet (can use Revelio again to mark it). Outside the classroom on the balcony.
House Token #3 – The Bell Tower Wing > Bell Tower Courtyard
Fast travel to “Bell Tower Courtyard”. From where you spawn, turn left and go up the first set of stairs, then go straight through the door.

After going near it, turn around (in the direction you came from) and take the path left of the stairs to find the cabinet.
House Token #13 – Secret Rooms > The Map Chamber
