How to investigate the Goblin Presence in Hogwarts Legacy

This is another one of those open-ended quest steps

As we’ve spoken about in the past, Hogwarts Legacy does do a pretty good job of telling you where to go next (if you so choose), but sometimes, it can be overly cryptic. Here’s how to investigate the Goblin Presence in Hogwarts Legacy.

How to investigate the Goblin Presence in Hogwarts Legacy

To investigate the Goblin Presence, head into the tent in the keep and read the note on the table. Investigating the Goblin Presence takes place during Percival Rackham’s Trial mission, toward the start. Directly after you acquire the ability to cast Petrificus Totalus, you’ll enter a keep inhabited by goblins. You have the option to directly confront and eliminate all of them, or sneak around and get by on stealth alone.

Whatever your choice might be, you will need to investigate the Goblin Presence via a memo in the tent. Facing the doorway you used to enter the keep (where you learned Petrificus Totalus), turn left. See that little tent there? It has the memo you need. Just walk up to it and read it, and the quest will progress.

Turn around and face away from the tent. That spire is your next quest objective, where you’ll slowly make your way down to Percival Rackham’s Trial, and continue with the main storyline. Goblin presence investigated!

This quest was tough to locate at launch, and not much has changed since then. Just make sure you head to the tent to get everything going! We also have a ton of Hogwarts Legacy guides to consult if you run into a similar problem during the main quest or a side mission.

How to complete Percival Rackham’s Trial

After entering the tower, head up the stairs and into the main hall. Investigate the swell on the ground and walk through the mirror. Take down the enemies within and use Accio (the purple pull spell) to propel yourself toward the right-hand side of the level.

Interact with the magic swell again, and use Accio to leap onto the platform on the left. Interact with yet another swell, and jump to the ground level. Cast Accio to pull the platform to the middle of the room, enter the mirror, and walk up the stairwell to the right. Climb onto the platform and Accio yourself to the end of the room.

Walk down the hall and to the right (defeating the enemies) and Accio again to pull yourself to the end of the chasm. Here, you’ll find a giant boss room with the Pensieve Guardian boss.

How to beat the Pensieve Guardian

The Pensieve Guardian looks formidable, but it’s actually quite tame. To take it down, you’ll need to destroy the orb it wields in its hands, which will make it vulnerable. All you need to do is match the color of the orb to your spells, and fire away.

Make sure that you’ve equipped a variety of different color spells so that you have all of the tools for the job. Ideally, this can be done before you enter the Pensieve Guardian’s chamber. We have a full detailed guide on how to defeat the Pensieve Guardian here.
