Where to Find the Puzzle Doors Cipher (Arithmancy Study Guide Page)
Before you can start solving the Puzzle Doors littered throughout Hogwarts you will want to find the puzzle cipher. The cipher for the Door Puzzles is located in the Divination Classroom Tower. Make your way to the fast travel point there or go to the tower itself now.
Go halfway up the tower until you reach a room with rafters you can walk along. Walk into this room and follow the path until it splits. Take the right path and walk to the end. Here you will find a Door Puzzle. Opposite the Door Puzzle on a bench is a blue treasure chest. Loot the treasure chest to get the quest item called the Arithmancy Study Guide Page. This item will help you solve the Door Puzzles.
What Are the Animal’s Numbers?
The Arithmancy Study Guide Page can be found in your inventory under Quest Items. When you view this page you see a picture of an animal and a number. The list is as follows:
- Owl = 0.
- Unicorn = 1.
- Dragon = 2.
- Hydra = 3.
- Owl on branch = 4.
- Five-legged beast = 5.
- Salamander = 6.
- Tentacle Creature = 7.
- Spider = 8.
- Squid = 9.
Getting this page is a very important step in being able to solve any of the Door Puzzles you encounter in Hogwarts. The next step in the process is knowing what exactly the puzzle is asking.
How to Solve the Animal Door Puzzles
Now that we know the value of the different animal symbols, it’s time to tackle the actual puzzles themselves. When you encounter a Door Puzzle you will be presented with two triangles that have three orbs on them, and bigger orbs in the center. These three orbs contain either a number, an animal, or a ?/??. The bigger orbs in the center of the triangle feature a number.
To solve the Door Puzzles you need to input the animal symbols into the ?/?? spots that create the sum given in the big orbs in the center of the triangles. This means you will want to reference Arithmancy Study Guide Page.
