Joining the many Field Guide Pages and Eye Chests dotted over Hogwarts Legacy, Daedalian Keys are another set of collectibles players will find to work toward acquiring a special House prize.

Shaped as golden keys with buzzing wings, Daedalian Keys get introduced through a side quest with Nellie Oggspire in the Transfiguration Courtyard. Once found, they will guide players to a House Cabinet, where they must slap the key into the socket to unlock and collect a House Token.
