Some gear items that your character finds in Hogwarts Legacy may not be immediately known, their traits are hidden, and the description says: Take this to the Room of Requirement to reveal its qualities. This means you must bring the pieces into the Room of Requirement to the Identification Station – the Desk of Description.
How to Identify Gear Items
Any time you find a gear piece that needs identifying, you need to return to your room of requirements and place it in the Desk of Description to discover the qualities of the gear. It is a piece of furniture, a special machine that you can place anywhere in your special chambers.
Here are all steps you need to complete:
- Complete the Room of Requirement quest
- Find the piece of the unidentified gear item
- Take the item to the Room of Requirement (you can fast travel using Foo Powder)
- Enter the Desk of Description station and use assigned key buttons to reveal hidden traits and identify an item.
- On PC, press the “F” key
- On PlayStation, press the “Square” icon
- On Xbox, press the “X” icon
It means that you need to unlock the Room of Requirement first!
How to unlock Room of Requirement?
To unlock Room of Requirement, you must progress in the main story and complete the quest with the same name – “Room of Requirement”. The quest is available around 5-6 hours into the game and after completing the “Jackdaw’s Rest” quest. The next day, you’re tasked with your broom flying lessons, meeting with Sebastian to learn the Confringo spell, and finally talking to Professor Weasley to unlock the Room of Requirement. It’s a short quest that takes you to special chambers where you can not only reveal unidentified items but also craft gear, brew potions and give a home to many magical beasts!
