Are you wondering how to dive? Hogwarts legacy so you can explore the magical underwater areas and creatures we met in the original Harry Potter series? Not so fast! Unfortunately, you can only dive under specific circumstances, and you won't be able to explore underwater once you're done. This may sound disappointing, but the diving mechanic in Hogwarts Legacy serves an essential purpose in completing quests and finding loot. So what is dipping for and how is it done? Here's everything you know about diving into Hogwarts Legacy.
Unfortunately, you can only dive underwater using the designated spots in Hogwarts Legacy. Therefore, you cannot dive whenever you want. Instead, you should look for eddies in and around Hogwarts bodies of water. You can see these eddies from the ground and while swimming. You can also view them from above while riding a mount. Once spotted, you can swim up to them and interact with them to dive into the water.
Another disappointing aspect of scuba diving is that you won't be exploring underwater. Instead, you will see your character go underwater while the camera remains above the water. There is also a chance that you will be transported to a cave, but you will experience an instant transition from the body of water to a cave on dry land.
There are two reasons why you should dive into Hogwarts Legacy despite the disappointing mechanics. First, you will have to complete some missions like Lost Astrolabe where you have to dive to find the mission items. The second reason to dive is that you will find loot, as equipment, either in the water itself or inside the caves mentioned above.
Hogwarts legacy is scheduled for February 10, 2023 on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. Find out how to play 72 hours early using Early Access!
