In Hogwarts Legacy, the symbolized doors in the Clock Tower are one of the secrets of Hogwarts that require you to solve the giant clock puzzle to unlock. In this guide, we will tell you where this puzzle is located and how to solve it to open the grates that hide various treasures.
Where to find the puzzle with the clock and doors in the Clock Tower
Travel to the teleport called “Clock Tower Courtyard” located in the South Wing and you will immediately find a huge clock pendulum in front of you, moving from one side to the other. Turn around and stand facing the exit from the room – to the left of it you will see a door locked with a level 1 lock. Hack it with the Alohomora spell and go up the stairs.
At the top you will find four round plates along which the pendulum moves. Each shield has a specific symbol. These runes match the signs on the bars on the doors. So, you need to wait until the pendulum swings around one of the symbols, and then stop it.
For you can use one of two spells to stop the pendulum:
- Arresto Momentum – Learned by completing Madame Kogawa's Challenge 2.
- Glacius – Learned by completing Madam Kogawa's Challenge 1. In this case, to unfreeze the pendulum, you will need to use the fire spell Confringo.
As soon as you freeze the pendulum next to a certain rune, the door with the corresponding sign will open, and you will be able to freely enter the room behind it and collect your reward. Next, we will indicate the location of all locked doors and the symbols next to which you need to stop the clock.
How to find and open doors with symbols and bars
Stop the pendulum near the leftmost unicorn symbol and then drop down (if you're standing at the top) and go through the door on the right side. Inside you will find a chest containing a piece of furniture to decorate your own room.
Now go upstairs again and freeze the pendulum near the owl sign. Turn left, look around the corner, and you will find the right door. Before you go inside, use a Deillumination Spell, as inside you will find a chest with an eye, from which you can take 500 gold coins.
Next, freeze the pendulum next to the double-headed serpent symbol. Then turn into the right passage to the stairs (if you stand with your back to the clock) leading to the third floor. Turn right, walk along the wooden platform, turn left and go down to the third door. Go inside and unlock two chests.
At the end, stop the pendulum near the rightmost scarab beetle sign. If you are on the 3rd floor, then stand with your back to the clock, enter the left passage and climb the stairs to the very top of the tower. Exit to the platform and straight ahead you will see the right door. Inside you will find a large chest with legendary equipment.
