This page of the Hogwarts Legacy guide contains a walkthrough for The Man Behind the Moons side quest. You will learn how to unlock Alohomora II and Alohomora III spells by finding Demiguise Statues. These are useful upgrades that will allow you to open padlocks with level 2 and level 3 locks.
Unlocking the quest
You can unlock this quest right away after completing The Caretaker's Lunar Lament main quest. Gladwin Moon will tell you that you can bring him more Demiguise Moons.
Rewards for completing the quest
- Alohomora II and Alohomora III spells unlocked - You can use them to open level 2 and 3 locks. These are important upgrades, because you can find valuable loot in locked rooms and containers (including unique collectibles).
Return Demiguise Moons to Gladwin Moon
Your task is to find Demiguise Statues and get the Demiguise Moons. As a reminder, this is only possible at night, as the statues are inactive during the day. You must:
- get 9 Moons to upgrade the spell to the second level;
- get next 13 Moons to advance the spell to the maximum third level.
We have included the locations of the Demiguise Statues in the Secrets and collectibles chapter. We recommend starting with your search in Hogwarts. Remember to also visit villages that have 1-2 statues.
Moons are stored in the inventory. Once you have collected at least 9 of them, activate the quest in the journal and return to the Caretaker at Hogwarts. Give the Moons to Gladwin.
You will receive a message that an improved version of the spell has been unlocked. Do the same after collecting 13 Moons to learn Alohomora 3.
