Should You Steal the Fwooper Feather in Hogwarts Legacy?

Yes, you should steal the Fwooper Feather in Hogwarts Legacy, as it results in a fun interaction between you and Gareth Weasley.

However, stealing the Fwooper Feather for Gareth Weasley does not affect the outcome of the potions class or which of Hogwarts Legacy’s multiple endings you get. So, it, therefore, does not matter if you steal it or not.

If you don’t want to be told off by Professor Sharp at the end of the class, then do not steal it. However, being told off doesn’t affect your character or the story, so don’t worry if you steal the feather.

Additionally, as Gareth Weasley is not one of the many companions in Hogwarts Legacy, if you refuse his request, you will still get access to his other quests later on.

There are minor differences in events depending on if you steal the Fwooper Feather or not, which you can learn all about below.
