Hogwarts Legacy Broom Upgrades Guide

Even with Quidditch cancelled, brooms are still in style. And to make them even better, take advantage of the speed upgrades with the help of this guide to make getting around quicker and easier.

Welcome to the wizarding world of Hogwarts Legacy, an immersive role-playing game set in the magical universe of J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series. Where players will embark on a journey to discover their true potential as a wizard or witch, and what better way to explore this magical land than on a magical flying broom. In this guide, we’ll tell you all there is to know on how to get and upgrades for the Broom.


  • In a magical world like Hogwarts, getting around is just as magical i.e on a flying broom.
  • There are multiple brooms available for purchase and not just that, brooms have 3 slots for speed and acceleration upgrades.
  • Getting those upgrades requires players to take part in a timed trial, which subsequently unlocks the upgrades for purchase.

Your beloved broom is the next-best means to travel swiftly across the world, excluding fast travel with Floo Flames, even though you may eventually get flying mounts as you progress the story.

How To Get and Use The Broom

A broom lets players take flight and travel from point A to point B like a true wizard, not unlike muggles that have to walk. So naturally, if you’ve just started this adventure, you’re wondering how you get the broom and if there are any modifications that can be made to it. Well, we have you covered.

To obtain a broom, you must advance through the main plot until you’ve finished the quest titled “Jackdaw’s Rest”, once you’ve completed the quest and returned to your common room to rest, you’ll be given the quest named “Flying Class”.

Here you’ll receive a brief flying instruction from Madam Kogawa and If you choose to accept Everett Clopton’s offer, a tour of the castle by air. This results in a point deduction from your respective house, but the detour is more than worth it.

After finishing the quest, fast travel to any point in Hogsmeade and make your way to Spintwitches Sporting Needs shop across from Ollivanders. The first time you get here, the store is closed, but after the class, you may buy whatever broom you want for 600 galleons. If you don’t have enough, keep in mind that you may sell your equipment or obtain more by looting containers, camps, and treasure chests. You can also open the Eye Chest using the Disillusionment Charm for easy 500 Gold. Here’s a helpful guide on how to make more money in Hogwarts Legacy.

Now just simply equip your broom by holding L1/LB/Tab (depending on which platform you play on) and press B/O/3. Controls on the broom are as same as while you walk, you may ascend or descend with the right analog stick and use the temporary boost of speed by holding down LT/L2/Left Mouse Click.

Now that you have the broom ready, lets explain on how to get those sweet speed Broom Upgrades.

Buying your first broom unlocks the quest “Flight Test” from Albie Weekes. This quest takes you to a meeting with Imelda Reyes on the Quidditch Pitch. As soon as you begin the Broom Trial, you must beat her previous time, which is visible at the top of the screen. Here are some helpful tips to beat Imelda’s time for the quest:

  • While you don’t need to hit all 22 rings, missing one will deduct 3 seconds from your own time.
  • You will get a speed boost from the golden bubbles between the rings, they are sufficient enough that you won’t need to use your manual boost. Blowing a bubble will also fully recharge your manual boost, so make use of it.

In order to finish the mission, go back to Albie’s store. Await his notification by Owl Post that the upgrade is available for purchase for 1000 Galleons. Subsequent upgrades will require you to complete two more of Iselda’s time trials. You can start those quests for the second and final upgrade by speaking to Mr. Weekes. Here’s more detail on the final two upgrade quests:

  • Broom Upgrade II – complete the side quest ‘Sweeping the Competition’. Further increases the broom’s acceleration and speed (Cost: 4,000 Galleons).
  • Broom Upgrade III – complete the side quest ‘The Sky is the Limit’. Further increases the broom’s acceleration and speed (Cost: 7,500 Galleons).

Now of course, while you can travel around the world of Hogwarts Legacy solely on your broom, the quickest way to travel around is to use the Floo Flames. Instantaneous travel isn’t as much fun, though. That’s it for this Hogwarts Legacy Broom Upgrades guide. We hope to see you in the next ones, while you’re here do out more of our Hogwarts legacy guides, like this best mods one.
