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.

All Incantations and how to unlock them in Hades 2
Melinoe fighting under a full moon in Hades 2.

You can't have a game where you play as a witch without a massive cauldron. Hades 2 places one front and center in the Crossroads, but it isn't just there for decorative purposes. Melinoë can use this big boiling pot of green liquid to bring new features into the game, whether it be between runs or during them, in exchange for various materials like Silver. You will only start out with a few Incantations, but doing more runs and getting further toward your goal of killing Chronos will gradually unlock more to create. There are far more than you might expect for an early access game. Here are all the Incantations and their recipes.
Every Incantation, effect, and recipe
The order in which you unlock Incantations in the menu can vary based on what you do and how you progress in Hades 2, so this list is in no particular order. Also, it is possible there are more we haven't been able to unlock yet, so we will update this list if we discover any more or if additional ones are added during early access.

How to mine Silver in Hades 2
Art for Nemesis in hades 2.

Silver is one of the most important resources you can find in Hades 2. Unlike most others that drop after clearing a room, this precious metal must be mined from deposits around the map, leading to the question of how you can gather it. You may come across a glowing stone with the "Collect?" prompt, only to be told you cannot gather it without a special tool. That tool is none other than the Crescent Pick, but unlocking it is a bit obscure. It won't take you many runs to get what you need, so just follow our lead so you can start collecting Silver to make new weapons with.

Silver deposits will pop up around the environment as you navigate the randomly generated rooms, so you will need to keep an eye out for these glowing silver rocks. To gather that sweet material, you first need to unlock and acquire the Crescent Pick, which takes two steps.

How to get to Monkey Island in Sea of Thieves
Two men look at an election poster for Guybrush in Sea of Thieves.

Over the course of its many years of updates and expansions, Sea of Thieves has had a few notable crossovers with other pirate franchises. The Pirates of the Caribbean crossover let you team up with the legendary Jack Sparrow, but the Monkey Island content felt like it came out of nowhere. For those unaware, Monkey Island is a series of pirate point-and-click games that were as funny as the puzzles were obscure. Thankfully, you don't have to intuit that you need to combine a cat whisker with a mason jar to bypass a skeleton guard to get to this new content, but it is more challenging than you might think.
