Hippogriff

The Hippogriff is obtained after completing the main story quest “The High Keep.” Hippogriffs move slightly slower than brooms, but they can change their elevation at a faster speed.

Onyx Hippogriff

The Onyx Hippogriff is unlocked after completing the main story quest “The High Keep” — but only if you preordered Hogwarts Legacy. Currently, there is no other way of unlocking the Onyx Hippogriff. Don’t worry if you missed it: The only difference between the two Hippogriffs is the appearance. There is no difference in speed or flight ability.

Thestral

The Thestral is unlocked after completing the main story quest “The High Keep” if you have the Dark Arts Pack, which comes with the Digital Deluxe Edition of Hogwarts Legacy. It’s also available for purchase for $20 USD. The Thestral also has the same flight ability as the Hippogriffs.

Land mounts in Hogwarts Legacy

There is only one land mount in Hogwarts Legacy — the Graphorn. You’ll unlock the land mount after completing the main story quest “San Bakar’s Trial.”

The Graphorn is the only land mount in Hogwarts Legacy, and it’s the only mount that can damage enemies. Charge into any enemy to deal a bit of damage to them, and use the charge to break any obstacles in your way.

Now that you’ve collected every rideable mount in Hogwarts Legacy, try out some of the other challenges such as finding all of the Daedalian Keys inside the Hogwarts castle or completing all of the Merlin Trials around the Highlands.

On numerous occasions in recent years, billionaire and Harry Potter creator J.K. Rowling has taken public stances against inclusive transgender laws and trans rights, and has written fiction that has been condemned by LGBTQ+ organizations for its use of harmful anti-trans tropes. Hate crimes, as well as legislation that denies the rights of trans people, have become more prevalent in the U.K. since 2019, and, more recently, in the United States as well.

According to an FAQ from Hogwarts Legacy publisher Warner Bros. Interactive — the parent company of Avalanche Software, the game’s developer — Rowling is “not directly involved” with the creation of Hogwarts Legacy. Regardless, the sales and widespread attention generated by a AAA video game will benefit Rowling, and that has led some fans to decide not to buy the game. For a more in-depth explainer of the yearslong controversy leading up to Hogwarts Legacy’s release, read Polygon’s breakdown.
