Hogwarts Legacy Ghosts of Our Love guide: how to find the floating candles

Just like in a normal school, there are plenty of extracurricular activities to spend your time doing in Hogwarts Legacy. Being an open-world RPG, these mostly take the form of side quests given to you by other witches and wizards in the school who need your help. A unique one is titled “Ghost of Our Love” which can be a bit different depending on which of the four houses your character belongs to. The end goal will always be the same, but that doesn’t make it any easier to complete. If you’re struggling to find the floating candles location in Hogwarts Legacy, let us guide your path.

Starting the “Ghost of Our Love” quest requires you to reach a certain point in the game, but this is different depending on your house. Here’s what quest you need to complete before you can start this one for each house, and then the location of where you collect the map after completing said quest.

  • Gryffindor: “The Hunt for the Missing Pages” — near the crypt beside the grave
  • Hufflepuff: “Prisoner of Love” — beside the front door of the house behind the vendor’s stall in Upper Hogsfield
  • Ravenclaw: “Ollivander’s Heirloom” — in the southern part of the Owlery
  • Slytherin: “Scrope’s Last Hope” — in the secret caves below Hogwarts

You will find the map here labeled “Map with Floating Candles” which is a very rough sketch of a map of a bridge, arch, forest, and floating candles. Naturally, this isn’t enough to easily narrow down where you need to go. And even if you do somehow piece the location together, there’s another wrinkle that may prevent you from completing the quest.

Once you begin the quest, take a look at the map you are given at the appropriate starting location. From there, fast travel to the Forbidden Forest Floo Flame location due north of Hogwarts. Cross the bridge directly in front of you. If it isn’t already, at this point make sure it is currently nighttime by changing the time in your map menu. Cast your Lumos spell and continue towards the Forbidden Forrest where you will see the floating candles. If it isn’t night, the candles won’t appear.

Follow the path the candles take you on, through an arch and up a hill to a scene with a small table and chairs set up beside a chest. Simply loot the chest to collect the Seeker’s Scarf and the quest will be completed.

How to find the Fifth Sage in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom
A sage grabbing ganon by the throat.

For as open and freeform as The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is, even allowing you to skip essentially every quest in the game and go straight to the final boss, you will be missing a ton by doing so. At the very least, most players will want to complete all the main quests before marching into the final encounter, which will take many hours. One quest is taking some adventurers a long time to complete, not due to its difficulty, but because they have no idea how to complete it.

The Fifth Sage quest is one of the most enigmatic in the entire game in what you're supposed to do to complete it. You're only given a single clue, and it's not a very helpful one at that.

All Legendary Schematics in Palworld and where to find them
A giant pal uses a minigun in Palworld.

Despite featuring all the various types of Pals in Palworld so heavily, they are not actually the most effective way to fight. Sure, they will help you out, and a Legendary can certainly pull its weight in a battle, but you will mostly be relying on your own character to do the work. This is what makes crafting new weapons and armor so important. Most of these you can access simply by leveling up and getting the required materials to make them, but the best of the best can only be made after finding their schematics. If you want only the top-tier gear in Palworld, then you will be hunting for the Legendary Schematics. These will give you access to a range of otherwise unobtainable weapons and armor that can make you all but invincible. Here is how you can get these blueprints for yourself in Palworld.
All Legendary Schematics

There are only nine Legendary Schematics in Palworld, with six dedicated to weapons and the remaining three for armor. Each one is a drop from a specific Alpha Pal in the open world. Note that you are not guaranteed a Legendary Schematic drop. These are rare, probably below 10%, so you will almost certainly have to repeat these battles to get the schematics. Here is a list of your targets and where to find them.
Crossbow Legendary Schematic
The crossbow upgrade boosts your attack to 490 and can be picked up by defeating the level 23 Bushi. It is located at coordinates 1116, 491.
Handgun Legendary Schematic
The Legendary handgun completely transforms the nearly useless base model by upping its attack to 625. Get it by defeating the level 29 Beakon at coordinates 345, -253.
Assault Rifle Legendary Schematic
Who doesn't love the Assault Rifle? Make it deal 560 damage after taking down a level 49 Blazmut waiting at coordinates 434, 532.
Old Bow Legendary Schematic
If you want a bow that smacks enemies with 247 damage arrows, you need to grind out Kingpaca at coordinates 50, -460.
Pump-Action Shotgun Legendary Schematic
If you're a fan of CQC, the shotgun schematic will buff your damage to 385. Suzaku will hold it and is a level 45 Pal found at coordinates 404, 255.
Rocket Launcher Legendary Schematic
Look, sometimes you just need a problem-solver. A Rocket Launcher dealing 14,000 damage can't be argued with in that regard. You'll have to take on the level 50 Jetragon at coordinates 788, 320.
Cloth Armor Legendary Schematic
Not quite on the level as the following two, this schematic is great for the mid game with 112 HP, 24 Defense, and 250 Durability. You only need to beat a level 11 Chillete at coordinates 175, -420.
Pal Metal Helmet Legendary Schematic
This shiny new helmet offers 560 HP, 1,200 Durability, and 240 Defense. Grab it early to make getting the rest of the schematics easier, but you will have to overcome level 50 Frostallion at coordinates -355, 55.
Heat and Cold Resistant Pal Metal Armor Legendary Schematic
Both the Legendary Heat and Cold Resistant Pal Metal Armor drop from the same target. Both have equal stats and give 1,200 HP, 11,000 Durability, and 400 Defense. And, of course, they resist hot and cold weather respectively. You will need to take down the level 50 Paladius up north at coordinates 445, 680.

Where to find the Black Marketeer in Palworld
The black marketeer in Palworld.

Guns aren't the only darker subject matter Palworld takes on that may surprise those who see it as just a Pokemon clone. Beyond collecting Pals and resources like Ancient Civilization parts to craft buildings, you will also be able to procure some rather dubious items, such as people. While you can put them to work for you, there is an entire network of black market sales that you can participate in that can be very lucrative if you don't mind doing some morally grey business deals. If you're ready to participate in the dark underbelly that is Palworld, here is where you can find all the Black Marketeers to buy and sell rare items.
All Black Marketeer locations
There are five different Black Marketeers to find hidden in the wilds of Palworld. They are all well-hidden, and some you won't be able to reach until later in the game, but thankfully all seem to buy and sell the same stock at the same prices. Note that they do have a limited stock of items for sale, but will refresh if you leave and come back after some time.
