The Deadalian Keys, the quest in which you must gather 16 house tokens in order to unlock the house chest in a common room, is without a doubt one of the longest side missions in Hogwarts Legacy. We will guide you to the locations of all 16 tokens.

Playing Hogwarts Legacy , and especially exploring the world will introduce you to a large number of students and teachers who will frequently function as quest-givers to you. This action RPG from Warner Bros. is packed with material; whether you want to hunt collectables, complete the main objective, solve side quests, or simply explore the beautiful game world, you will always have plenty to do in this game.

There are a lot of them when it comes to side quests. Some are brief and easy to complete, while others may demand you to work hard. The Daedalian Keys is one such quest. In order to finish it, you will have to collect 16 house tokens hidden all over Hogwarts Castle.

To discover the token, first we need to locate the dragonfly carrying the key and then follow it to the nearby locked cabinet. Once we located the cabinet, we need to slap the key into the keyhole to retrieve the token. It's worth mentioning that simply locating the cabinet will not unlock it; you'll still need to seek down the dragonfly, but don't worry, it's usually nearby.

Note: If you can't find the dragonfly at its initial location, simply go to its respective cabinet location where the dragonfly will wait for you. It's possible that you've already triggered them at some point while exploring the castle, without even knowing. 

House tokens locations in Hogwarts Castle

Token No. 1 (Astronomy Wing, Transfiguration Courtyard flame)

The quest starts once you interact with Nellie Oggspire in Transfiguration Courtyard. Once the conversation with her is done follow the objective marker to find the first dragonfly and the token inside the cabinet. This one is unmissable because it is quest related.

Note: If you started this quest before, but didn't pick up the token for whatever reason, here's how to find the dragonfly and the cabinet outside of the questline. 

Fast travel to The Great Hall flame, and as soon as you spawn, turn around and exit the great hall. From there, go straight forward and exit through two more doors and you'll see the dragonfly directly in front of you. Follow it down the stairs to find the cabinet on the right side of the big door.

Token No. 2 (The Great Hall, Great hall flame)

Once you enter The Great Hall, look to the left, there is a huge fireplace and the dragonfly in front of it. Simply follow it up the stairs, which are just right of the Great Hall entrance. 

Token No. 3 (The Library Annex, Potions classroom flame)

The dragonfly is located directly in front of the Potions classroom. Once you locate it, follow the dragonfly downstairs to find another cabinet and the token within it.

Note: The next two tokens can be obtained during The Caretaker's Lunar Lament quest. However, if you miss them during this quest, you can fast-travel to the Hospital Wing flame in The South Wing, and head down the hallway towards clock gears where you'll find the dragonfly. Follow it back, down the stairs where you'll spot the first locked cabinet near the statue. 

To find the second dragonfly, continue down the circular stairs then down three sets of normal stairs, until you see the arch door with symbols and numbers. Dragonfly will be there. Follow it down two sets of stairs and you'll find the second cabinet just beneath the stairs.
