Hogwarts Legacy – How To Find The PlayStation Exclusive Side Quest, ‘The Haunted Hogsmeade Shop’

Hogwarts Legacy continues to be magical, as we discover more adventures throughout our journey in the Wizarding World. There are tons of side quests to discover throughout the Highlands and even in the Academy, but in my opinion, one of the best side quests is located in your backyard of Hogsmeade – the Haunted Hogsmeade Shop side quest, a PlayStation exclusive.

Most of the side quests in the game are fetch quest-related, usually to collect certain components, breed beasts, and defeat certain enemies. “The Haunted Hogsmeade Shop” side quest implements effective storytelling to create an interesting side episode of Hogwarts Legacy that actually stands out compared to its many run-of-the-mill side quests.

Hogwarts Legacy – How To Find The PlayStation Exclusive Side Quest

Before anything else, players will have to finish Charles Rookwood’s Trial, otherwise known as the second trial in the game.

You can find it in Hogsmeade as a quest called “Minding Your Own Business,” where you’ll be hailed by the House-Elf Penny, who seems to be on a task by her mistress to find a new owner of a magical shop.

As you proceed with your quest, you head off to meet with Penny’s mistress, Cassandra, within Hogsmeade, and she easily gives you the deed to the shop with the caveat that you resell it to her for a fraction of the sale value if your business venture fails.

As a proud Slytherin, I don’t take kindly to that insult. I’ll show her, I’ll be the best shopkeeper in all of Hogsmeade!

So I return to the shop to find an overjoyed Penny, who now urges me to check out the basement. That’s when the quest begins…

The quest is pretty straightforward, and players will need to use the likes of Reparo, Wingardium Leviosa, and Lumos to complete it. You’ll be fighting a boss monster toward the end, so keep your wand at the ready!

It’s my favorite side quest in the game, and once you’re done with it, you’ll get rewarded with some cool gear along with a shop that will allow you to sell stuff at 10% more profit. Better rates than anywhere else indeed!
