When you view the Henrietta’s Map you will see a few images that suggest you go to a specific location. These images are an old castle ruins, the edge of a peninsula, and fire and ice surrounding a Hippogriff. These three clues hint at a very specific location you need to visit to find the treasure.

To find the location, and the treasure there, make your way to the Manor Cape named area. Head to the very southern end of the peninsula to find the Henrietta’s Hideaway castle. This castle is the location that is shown in Henrietta’s Map. At the castle head to the southeast side to find a staircase leading down to a doorway. Go through this door to reach a dungeon.

In the first room of the dungeon solve the fire and ice cube puzzle to open the door. Go into the next room to find the Hippogriff statue. This statue is a puzzle we must solve. Use Henrietta’s Map to view the solution to the statue puzzle. Basically what you need to do here is use a flame spell to light the torches around the statue’s feet to match the drawing on the map. Extinguish flames using ice.

Once the statue puzzle is solved a secret wall will open leading to a treasure chest. Open this treasure chest to receive a special cosmetic item. Once the treasure has been claimed you will have completed the Hogwarts Legacy The Hippogriff Marks the Spot side quest.
