# How to Solve Every *Hogwarts Legacy* Arithmancy Door Puzzle

So simple a troll can do it.

As you wander the myriad magical hallways of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry during your time in *Hogwarts Legacy*, you will notice some strange locked doors. These doors, known as Arithmancy Doors, are puzzles. So you’ll have to put your thinking cap on in order to open them. Fortunately, there’s a trick that makes every door *much* easier to solve. Here’s what you need to know.

## How to open Arithmancy Doors

In order to open these doors, you need to understand what’s actually going on. When you press “Reveal” on the door and see a mathematical formula with strange symbols, it usually looks far more complicated than it actually is. Each fantastical creature on the door represents a different number, so you need to mentally replace the creature in the formula with the corresponding number.

After that, simply subtract the two smaller numbers from the central number, and you’ll have your answer. From there, find the left and right dials and rotate the symbols until you get a creature that matches the number of your answer. The left dial corresponds to the top formula, while the right dial will correspond to the bottom formula.

You can find a note that gives you a cipher for all of the animals, but to make things easier, here’s the number every animal represents:

- 0 - Demiguise
- 1 - Unicorn
- 2 - Graphorn
- 3 - Runespoor (Three-headed snake)
- 4 - Fwooper
- 5 - Quintaped (Five-legged creature)
- 6 - Salamander
- 7 - Grindylow (Odd squid)
- 8 - Acromantula
- 9 - Hydra

Please note that in order to complete all of these puzzles, you’ll need to have progressed the main story to the point that you have the first level of *Alohamora* unlocked.
