Hogwarts Legacy’s release is just around the corner, and fans of the wizarding world can experience the magic firsthand. While Hogwarts Legacy is yet to launch, players might face issues such as the game not starting while trying to run the game. But you should fear not, as there will be new features implemented in Hogwarts Legacy that will bring the magic of the books and movies to the game. One of the newer mechanics you will be introduced to is the Wizard’s Field Guide, which will help you catch up to the lore surrounding Hogwarts. Let’s take a closer look at how the Wizard’s Field Guild works in Hogwarts Legacy. 

Hogwarts Legacy – How Does The Wizard’s Field Guide Work

The Wizard’s Field Guild is a handy option that keeps track of your progress throughout the game. In Hogwarts Legacy, you will enroll as a late fifth-year student, and to catch up on the courses offered by the school, you need to keep track of them. Accessing the Wizard’s Field Guild from time to time will help you assess how you fare in the wizarding world, and what you need to do to catch up to your peers.

In the game, you will be handed the Wizard’s Field Guild by the Deputy Headmistress, Matilda Weasley. The Guild will act as a pause menu whenever you need to check your progress in the game. There are several nods that you can interact with and get a better view of your stats. Below are all the options you can access using the Wizard’s Field Guide.

  • Gear – Will showcase whatever the character is wearing or has acquired.
  • Map – Shows the location of various places in and around Hogwarts
  • Inventory – Players can access their stored potions, herbs, and other items that they have acquired. 
  • Quests – Completing quests will reward the player with XP, and you can keep a track of your quests here.
  • Talents – This will show your skill or talent tree, including all locked and unlocked talents.
  • Owl Post – In-game mail
  • Collections – The game might introduce collectibles that players can find throughout. 
  • Challenges – Objectives that players can complete to get rewards and XP
  • Settings – Players can change the game settings to suit their needs. 

Completing challenges and uncovering collectibles will also let you learn more about the lore of Hogwarts. For every item that you find, it will be recorded in the Wizard’s Field Guide, and you can access this anytime you want to learn more about your environment. It is rumored that the guide will also document every enemy, creature, and character you will encounter, making it a very handy guide if you want to chronicle your journey.

While the Wizard’s Field Guide is something relatively new to the wizarding world, you might find a lot of familiar features from the Harry Potter franchise as well, such as interacting with the Room of Requirements, visiting Hogsmeade, and using a wand and broom to get around. There are various NPCs you will meet throughout your journey, and different tasks to complete and get one step closer to becoming a powerful wizard or witch. 

Hogwarts Legacy will be released on February 10th, 2023, and can be accessed across all gaming platforms.
