How to get and upgrade your broom in Hogwarts Legacy

One of the most iconic elements of the Harry Potter universe is the flying broomstick.

How to get your broom

Even though your student isn't a first-year student, you won't have access to a broom right away. Thankfully, you won't have to wait long or go out of your way to get one.

Step 1: Proceed through the main story missions until you reach "Flying Class."

Step 2: Attend Professor Kogawa's class and complete the missions.

Step 3: Go to Sprintwitches in Hogsmeade to purchase your first broom for 600 Galleons.

Step 4: This is also one of the vendors who will sell other broom designs, but you can also get them from bursting balloons flying around the world.

How to upgrade your broom

As fast as flying around is, it can always be faster. Your broom can get three levels of upgrades to increase its acceleration and top speed.

Step 1: Continue playing until Weekes, the owner of Sprintwitches, gives you the "Sweeping the Competition" quest, which is a time trial.

Step 2: This will unlock your first broom upgrade for 1,000 Galleons.

Step 3: This will unlock the second trial, which unlocks the next upgrade for 4,000 Galleons. The third upgrade is 7,500 Galleons.

Where to find The Den in Starfield
A spacecraft in Starfield.

For all you Starfield players who prefer to live a life of crime, then you'll no doubt know that collecting and selling contraband is one of the most lucrative ways to spend your time. However, you aren't able to just take these illegal items and sell them freely, especially if you don't have a ship that can hide your questionable cargo. If you want a safe place you can land and find a willing buyer for whatever haul you've got in your ship's hold, The Den is where you want to go. This is a hotspot for all sorts of illegal activity and nefarious players in the Starfield world but isn't exactly a place that advertises its location. If you want to pay a visit to The Den, here's where to find it.
How to get to The Den

To travel to The Den, open your star map and look for the Wolf system. This will be to the right of the Sol system and near the Narion and Alpha Centauri systems. Once you zoom in on the Wolf system, you won't find a planet named The Den because it isn't a planet at all - it is a space station. The Den is actually orbiting the planet Chthonia, so locate that and then look for an icon of an outpost near it called The Den. Select it and you can fast travel over.

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.
