Hogwarts Legacy Merlin Trials: How to solve every challenge

Merlin Legacy Hogwarts Trials are small spell-based challenges scattered throughout the game’s magical open world. Once you start exploring, you’ll find it’s hard to go three steps without stumbling into another Merlin test. That said, these puzzles are important as they give you extra gear inventory slots so you can carry more stuff to sell or wear.

You unlock the first Merlin Trial during the “Trials of Merlin” quest shortly after meeting Natty near Lower Hogsfield, and Nora Treadwell will talk you through the basic idea of ​​placing Mallowsweet on the altar and solving the challenge that follows. However, there are many different types of Merlin Trials around the world, and each of them requires a specific spell to solve. Here’s how to complete each type of Merlin Trial I’ve found and how to get enough Mallowsweet to start them.

As I traveled around the world of Hogwarts Legacy, I found eight different types of Merlin Trial that seem to repeat themselves in variations on the map. It’s worth noting that these trials require certain spells, which makes them impossible to complete if you haven’t learned them yet.
