To get to Azkaban, the wizard prison in Hogwarts Legacy, players will need to be a Hufflepuff student and progress through the story until they rescue an old woman near the Black Lake.

This will begin the Prisoner of Love quest that has your student meet a painting of Eldritch Diggory in the Hufflepuff Common Room and eventually wind up at Azkaban!

There is no other way to visit Azkaban other than by being a Hufflepuff student and completing this Prisoner of Love mission.

Check out all the other differences between the Gryffindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw, and Hufflepuff here!

Non-Hufflepuff students aren’t missing out on too much fun, however. After reaching Azkaban as part of the story mission, you won’t have a lot of room for exploration, nor will you be able to return to the prison once you leave.

Azkaban in Hogwarts Legacy

However, you do get to witness Dementors in action alongside Hogwarts Legacy’s only Patronus during the side quest.

Here’s how to get to Azkaban prison in Hogwarts Legacy.

  • Progress through the story until you rescue an old woman from Rookwood’s gang near the Black Lake.
  • You’ll then get a letter informing you that Eldritch Diggory, a previous Minister of Magic, wishes to talk to you in the Hufflepuff Common Room.
  • Talk to the portrait, and he’ll send you on a trip to see Helen Thistlewood in the hamlet of Upper Hogsfield.
  • After speaking to the woman, the two of you will apparate to Azkaban.

We won’t spoil what happens next, but it’s safe to say that it’s certainly an eventful field trip! And yes, there are more than a few Dementors in your path.

Thankfully, this questline has nothing to do with your witch or wizard’s ability to turn evil in Hogwarts Legacy.

If you want to see what the wizard prison looks like for yourself, this clip by ZaFrostPet on YouTube has you covered:

Can You Go to Azkaban As a Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, or Slytherin?

No, you cannot visit Azkaban as a Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, or Slytherin student. Only Hufflepuff students will be able to go to the wizard prison as part of a story mission.

It’s strange that Hufflepuff out of all the Houses is the one to go on such a dangerous side quest, but we’re happy to see the underrated House get some love.

Can You Get Sent to Azkaban in Hogwarts Legacy?

No, you cannot get sent to Azkaban in Hogwarts Legacy for any reason. While fans may suspect that you can get sent to Azkaban for using the Unforgivable Curses, there is no way to be sent to Azkaban officially.

However, creator jedijosh920 has made the Wanted System Mod for Hogwarts Legacy. It sends you to Azkaban for using the killing curse, Avada Kedavra.

It is worth noting that you can only access this mod on PC. Additionally, it is currently only available to download through jedijosh920’s Patreon.
