Hogwarts Legacy has a huge open world for players to explore, but there’s also a lot to explore within the castle walls. As players attempt to navigate Hogwarts, there are countless secrets to discover and myriad puzzles to solve, some easier than others. Some players may find themselves stuck with a puzzle that revolves around a statue holding a ball, but the solution to this problem is actually pretty simple.
While solving puzzles in Hogwarts Legacy usually rewards players with new gear or cosmetic changes for wands and costumes, another common reward is field guide pages. Packed with a wealth of lore about the world and information on various locations and items in the game, the Player’s Field Guide is a treasure trove for those who really enjoy diving into the magical world. Numerous statues with orbs reward the player with field guide pages, and subsequent knowledge.
where to find the statue holding the ball
These mysterious statues holding orbs can be seen all over Hogwarts, and it is likely that players have passed them. They may seem like simple decorations at first, but savvy players will notice that they become prominent when the player looks at them like other positionable objects. They can even be locked, but using a basic cast doesn’t seem to break the statue or make any changes at all. If players want to access the field guide pages within, they will need to use certain spells.
How to Use the Sphere Statue
As it happens, interacting with these statues is very simple and requires spells that the player learned on their first day at Hogwarts. Players can aim at the statue and cast Levioso, and the orb will open to reveal the Field Guide page where the orb used to be.
Finding these statues is a must if players want a true 100% Hogwarts legacy and want to make Professor Weasley proud in the process. In total, there are 14 different Levioso statues for players to find and collect Field Guide pages, all of which are needed by those looking to complete their expansive Field Guide to Hogwarts Legacy.
These statues are just one of Hogwarts’ many secrets. Players can obtain Field Guides in many other ways while exploring the school, from simply casting Revelio to using spells such as Incendio and Confringo. Players will need to be vigilant as they make their way through the castle if they want to uncover all the secrets it holds.
Hogwarts Legacy is out now on PC, PS5 and Xbox Series X/S. PS4 and Xbox One ports are scheduled for release on April 4; a Nintendo Switch version will arrive on July 25, 2023.
