Hogwarts Legacy: All Vivarium Collection Chest Locations

Hogwarts Legacy: All Vivarium Collection Chest Locations

In Hogwarts Legacy, the Vivarium is a unique location within the Room of Requirement that functions as a sanctuary for the magical beasts you find. Although it’s mainly for taming the magical creatures you can capture, you can head to the Vivarium to unwind and relax amidst nature.

The Vivarium boasts four different biomes: Dark, Grass, Coast, and Mountain. Each of these has three chests scattered across the map. Inside these chests are collectible items such as Wand Handles, Conjurations, and more.

Firstly, you must unlock all 4 Vivariums, which can be opened in the following four main and side quests:

  • To unlock Forest Vivarium (Mountain), complete “The Elf, The Nab-Sack, and The Loom” main quest.
  • To unlock the Coastal Vivarium, complete “The Plight of the House-Elf.”
  • To unlock Swamp Vivarium (Dark), complete the “Foal of the Dead” side quest.
  • To unlock Grassland Vivarium, complete the “Phoenix Rising” side quest. Let’s now get into the location of all the 12 Vivarium Chests.

To get to the Vivarium in Hogwarts Legacy, you must go to the Room of Requirement first. This can be easily accessed by visiting your Floo Flame locations list.

Grass Biome

The Grass Biome is right before you enter the Vivarium through Hogwarts Legacy’s Room of Requirement.

Chest #1

Head north immediately after entering this biome. After crossing two elevation levels in this general direction, you will find the first box.

Chest #2

Return to where you started in this biome and then head southwards towards the trial besides the big rock. Follow this trail to the end and jump onto the area below it to find the second Vivarium chest in Hogwarts Legacy.

Chest #3

Drop down from where you found the second chest, and you will find a cave to your left. Inside this cave, you will find the third Vivarium chest.

Dark Biome

After going up the staircase to the left, take a right and head up again to find the entrance to the Dark Biome. The Vivarium chests numbered four to six can be found here.

Chest #4

When you enter the dark biome, you must take a U-turn and head toward the light. Once you reach there, climb up the ledge on that piece of land to find the first chest.

Chest #5

Head back to the entry point and stand with your back to the gate, and you will see a large piece of rock with a light to the west. You have to climb this rock and go to the end, where you’ll find a tree trunk with some light.

Here, you will find the second Dark biome chest.

Chest #6

Compared to other chests, the final chest in the Dark biome is further away. You must first turn eastwards and jump onto the adjacent island. From here, turn north and head straight until you reach a mound.

Climb onto it to reach a cave, where you must first use Confringo to break a cobweb and then use Revelio to clear the fog. You will find the sixth Vivarium chest in Hogwarts Legacy inside the cave.

Chest #8

After collecting the first box in this biome, take a U-turn onto the beach and head eastwards towards the water. Across the water, you will spot a rocky island. On it, you will see an elevation. Climb onto this island to locate the eighth Vivarium chest in Hogwarts Legacy.

Chest #9

It would be best to head northwest from the second Coast biome chest to find a cave. Inside, you will find the final chest in this biome.

Mountain Biome

Inside the Vivarium in Hogwarts Legacy, go up the staircase on the left and then head left again to find the entrance to the Mountain Biome.

Class #10

Head southwest after you enter this biome and climb up to three levels of elevation to find a hidden chest in this biome.

Chest #11

Get down to the second elevation level and go left instead of forward. Once you descend from her, you will find an arch of rocks. Please go through it and head to the end of the path to find the second chest in this biome.

Chest #12

Exit the same arch that you entered through and headed northwards towards the abandoned building. You must enter the building and go through its two entrances on the right. At this point, you may have to use some fire spells to break through the cobwebs.

You can find the final Vivarium chest in Hogwarts Legacy here.

Following this guide, you can easily find all the chests hidden across the various Vivarium biomes in Hogwarts Legacy.
