The Hogwarts Legacy Shelving Books is an optional Hidden Object Quest, Perception, and mastering the basic skills of sorcery. In addition to thanks for your help, you will also receive another wand handle for your collection. In this guide, we will tell you how to find all the flying books in the library and get the coveted reward.
Passing the quest “Books to be swept off the shelves”
How to start the quest
- Location: Library Annex
Walking through the halls around the library, sooner or later you will stumble upon a slightly sad girl sitting in a chair near the entrance. Advances in the magical arts deprived Cressida Bloom of several books and even a personal diary. If you have already completed the quest “A lesson in spells”, you can talk to the unlucky sorceress and find out the details of her tragedy. To help her find the missing books, you must first learn the spells in this lesson.
How to find and collect flying books
Cressida's 1 and 2 flying books
Descend from the platform and turn right into the library hall. The first two books can be caught as soon as you open the door to the room: one of them hovers right in front of the entrance, the second in the center of the room above the tables. Use Revelio to highlight targets, followed by Accio to pull an object at a distance.
Cressida's 3 flying book
Run around the perimeter of the lower hall of the library, using the search charm again. The next tome flies in the nook behind the spiral staircase, near the point with the flying flame. By the way, this book will turn out to be Miss Bloom's diary that has flown away, and now you will have the opportunity to look into it.
4 and 5 flying books of Cressida
With the search on the first tier of the library, you just figured it out, so it's time to go up to the second. One of the books you are looking for flies along the long corridor behind the shelves on the right (if you look from the stairs), and you can just wait for the last one, watching the center of the hall – the enchanted Talmud regularly flies right into its middle. If you have already grabbed one of them, you can look for the other on the opposite side, their flight paths are almost mirrored.
What to choose in the dialogue with Cressida
When returning the collected books to the girl, you will notice the opportunity to choose alternative dialogue branches with very aggressive rhetoric. Whatever model of behavior you choose, it does not directly affect the game and the further plot, but only allows you to play your character in the way you prefer.
Regardless of the role choice in the conversation with Cressida, the character will receive a small amount of experience for completing the task, and the collection of curiosities will be replenished with a new design for the Gray Bird wand.
