How to solve moth mirror puzzles 

The premise of these moth mirror puzzles is quite simple. You will need to spend some time discovering the moth mirror locations in Hogwarts Legacy.

Each of these mirrors has a moth for it that is hidden somewhere, and you need to find that moth and bring it back to the mirror. The moths are located close by and the mirror itself will give you a hint about the location of the moth that you need to find for it.

For example, a lamp post might be shown in the mirror so you have to find that lamp post to find the moth and then guide it back to the mirror to collect the Field Guide Page reward.

To start off, use Lumos near the mirror and the black surface will disappear, showing an image. Pay close attention to what you see in the image and remember any prominent objects like a unique arch, painting, or statue. Now that you have committed the image to memory, look around you for that particular area.

Once you have found the stationary moth, use Lumos again to bring it back to life. The moth will start flying around your wand so lead it back to the mirror. Once you guide the moth back to the mirror, stop using the spell and the moth will land on the mirror, giving you your reward.

Generally, the moth is never too far from the mirror and if you think you are close by, you can use Revelio and listen for the fluttering wings audio cue.
