While the prospect of being part of the Wizarding World of Hogwarts is exciting enough, you can also Catch a Phoenix in the game. Hogwarts Legacy allows you to capture and tame several magical creatures, eventually releasing them into your Vivarium. 

The Vivarium is an animal sanctuary that is part of the Room of Requirement. There are plentiful magical beasts you can find in the game that might be familiar to you if you are a fan of Harry Potter. 

Still, there is one creature of legend that is elusive, though you do have a chance to acquire it. As you might have guessed from the title, I am talking about how you can Catch a phoenix in Hogwarts itself. 

Get ready to be burnt and reborn. The Phoenix is a well-known creature of mythology as a firebird who can be reborn. While the creature is awesome and so cool to have, it is not that easy to tame. That is why we have a Hogwarts Legacy guide to help you tame your own pet Phoenix.

To catch the legendary Phoenix in Hogwarts Legacy, you will need to complete the Phoenix Rising quest. However, the quest itself will not available until much later in the campaign. Here are the requirements needed before having the quest:

  • Finish Niamh Fitzgerald’s Trial main quest.
  • Complete all of Deek the house elf’s sidequests, such as Plight of the House Elf and Foal of the Dead (which unlocks the Beast breeding mechanic).

Afterward, you are told that Deek needs your help once more. With the Phoenix Rising quest tracked, you will want to head to the southern portion of the world map in a region called Poidsear Coast.

To be clear, you will visit this section of the world as part of the campaign. However, you could also make your way to the bandit camp in Coastal Cavern. From there, you should see a tunnel that lets you pass through the mountain range.

In any case, the Phoenix Rising quest is fairly straightforward. You will enter a small dungeon called Phoenix Mountain Cave. The cave is where you will battle several spiders and poacher enemies.

Eventually, the Phoenix will appear in front of you before flying away. You will have to continue going through the cavern until you reach it. When you spot it again, your character will remark that the creature seems like it wants to go with you. Just cast the Nab-sack spell, and it will happily enter the container. There is no need to do the button prompts.

When you are done, return to Deek in the Room of Requirement. Finally, you now have your own Hogwarts Legacy Phoenix, and it will head straight to the Mountain Vivarium, the fourth and final biome upgrade.
