The open world of Hogwarts Legacy is filled with puzzles and hidden areas that players can explore to loot some interesting rewards. Hogwarts Legacy Cairn Dungeons are one such type of explorable sections of the game that can require some effort from players.
These dungeons are found in different parts of the game, and the best way to get each in Hogwarts Legacy is to complete all the main and side quests.
While some treasure vaults in Hogwarts Legacy are easy to access and only contain one basic loot chest, Cairn Dungeons are a bit more complex. They are quite expansive and filled with a lot of dangerous enemies as well as rewarding loot.
Cairn dungeon locations in Hogwarts Legacy
Cairn Dungeons are marked on the map with a unique symbol that looks like an arch or a chevron.
