There’s a new Hogwarts Legacy update with bug fixes and minor updates, meaning if you’re currently stuck on a quest in the Harry Potter RPG due to a progression bug, you might to have good luck. Among the patch notes for this latest update is a fix that lets you save Biscuit, the adorable Mooncalf in the Take the Biscuit quest, the one that targets players stuck in the Astronomy class, and various bugs related to other Hogwarts Legacy quests.

In the Hogwarts Legacy Take the Biscuit quest, a worried goblin named Garnuff tasks you with rescuing his loyal Mooncalf, Biscuit. The bandits grabbed her and locked her in a nearby camp, but players who had already unlocked the cage before starting the quest were unable to save the poor creature. Luckily, this has now been fixed, meaning you should be able to save Biscuit as intended.

Other key fixes include those for the Follow the Butterflies quest, where you could lose access to some butterflies if you open the wrong chests first or die in the middle of the quest. There is also a fix for the Astronomy class where players looking at the telescope would get stuck on a screen telling them to focus. Madam Kogawa should also not disappear from her desk during related quests.

Along with this, there are several other bug fixes, including those associated with stealing the Hogwarts Legacy broomstick, stability and performance improvements, a fix for vendors not working correctly after saving some games, and a host of bug fixes. You can read the full list of bug fixes and optimizations below.

Harry Potter series creator JK Rowling has made a number of transphobic comments on social media in recent years. Warner Bros. has the license to create games based on Harry Potter. Although the details of this agreement are not known to the public and WB Games claims that “JK Rowling is not directly involved in the creation of the game”, it is likely that as creator and owner of the intellectual property of Harry Potter, she receives royalties on your sales.
