How to find and catch Diricawl in Hogwarts Legacy

One of the best parts of being able to explore the world of Hogwarts Legacy is interacting with all the magical creatures that inhabit it. Many are hostile, such as trolls, but there are a number of beasts that you are able to catch. The Diricawl somewhat resembles the extinct dodo, only tinged green and orange. Much like a dodo, however, it can feel impossible to actually find one. If you're on the hunt for a Diricawl in Hogwarts Legacy, here's how you can find and catch one.

Where to find Diricawl

Diricawl are flightless birds, so thankfully, you won't need to search the skies for them. They live in dens, with five scattered around the map you can visit.

Step 1: The closest Diricawl den is to the northwest of Keenbridge in some ruins. There are some enemies nearby, so approach with caution.

Step 2: A second den is to the far southwest of Poidsear Coast. If you fast travel to the South Poidsear Coast Floo Flame, you then need to simply head west on the map to where the river terminates.

Step 3: A third den is just a bit to the southwest of the Marunweem Floo Flame along the coast.

Step 4: The final two dens are both in the Clagmar Coast. From the Clagmar Castle Floo Flame, one is on the northern shore and the other on the western one.

How to catch Diricawl

Once you've found these sneaky birds, the real trick will be actually capturing one. Here's the tricks you need to know.

Step 1: Equip your Nab Sack, and Glacious and Arresto Momentum spells.

Step 2: Cast either of these spells on the Diricawl from a distance. If you get too close, they will teleport away.

Step 3: Once immobilized, close in and use your Nab Sack. You will need to fill up four meters on the sack to fully capture them, but you should be able to do it if you are quick enough after casting either of those spells.

What do Diricawls give you?

Saving and taking care of Diricawl in the Vivarium will reward you with, you guessed it, Diricawl Feathers. These are rare materials that you need to upgrade your gear once it reaches a certain level. They are also necessary for crafting a ton of level two traits. While you can't mount this specific beast, they're worth tracking down for a source of these important upgrade materials.

How to set a course in Starfield
Cockpit in spaceship from Starfield.

Rather than build one massive world like in an Elder Scrolls title, Bethesda opted to create hundreds of planets to travel between in the aptly named Starfield. While not every planet is necessary to visit, you will be jumping between them extremely frequently to complete missions, do sidequests, build outposts, and generally explore. When you are first shoved into the pilot's seat, it can feel overwhelming coming to grips with how the system works. If you just want to get from point A to B, setting a course is the easiest way to dos o. Here's how to get where you need to be without searching the massive star map in Starfield.

How to unlock the Pilgrim’s room in Starfield
Cockpit in spaceship from Starfield.

For the most part, the main questline in Starfield won't challenge you too much in terms of puzzle-solving. Missions tend to boil down to getting an objective, fast traveling to a location, and following your marker until you collect an Artifact. Since you can only unlock all the powers by going through the main quests, you will at least want to complete most of them before going off and doing all the faction missions, outpost building, or general space exploration. There's one mission, though, that can be a roadblock if you're not extra observant and invested in reading all the lore. If you don't know the answers to opening the Pilgrim's Computer in Starfield, here is all the information you need.
Pilgrim Computer's answers

After you arrive at Pilgrim's Rest and explore, you will be led to the small base that's full of notes, among dozens of other items. Your objective is behind a locked door that asks you a few questions that you're supposed to learn the answers to by hunting down and reading all the notes. This isn't a door you can lockpick no matter how high your skill level is, so selecting the right answers is the only way forward. Here are all the questions you will be asked, and the correct responses:
