When following a specific quest in Hogwarts Legacy, players must use a slightly confusing map they get in order to track down an NPC named Rowland.
A missing character named Rowland can be tracked down through his map in Hogwarts Legacy, but players might struggle to get this item or use it. This worn piece of paper only shows a couple of confusing landmarks that don’t really connect to the player’s map in any meaningful way. While there are areas in the Highlands region that players could have a chance to recognize on the map, there are far easier methods of tracking down the missing wizard’s location.
This quest in Hogwarts Legacy revolves around Adelaide Oakes, as the lost Rowland is her uncle and becomes available to players when they speak to Adelaide in the Transfiguration Courtyard. The quest marker that appears next leads players toward Rowland’s old campsite northwest of Hogwarts, which has now become a home for goblin enemies. Players can either defeat the occupying goblins or sneak past them, finding the map under a lantern in one of the smaller tents.
How To Read Rowland’s Map in Hogwarts Legacy
A red line on the map shows the direction Rowland was heading, down the west river toward the Korrow Ruins Floo Flame. Unfortunately, this area has many dangers through the Bandit Camp Castle that guards the entrance to the ruins, so players will have to use the Disillusionment Charm or fight their way inside. However, broomsticks in Hogwarts Legacy make it very easy for players to fly down the river to this spot and attract less attention from potential enemies than a flying mount would.
Rowland’s Map does not help players navigate through Korrow Ruins once they find a way into the deep caverns from the Bandit Camp Castle. However, Adelaide’s uncle does have their wand confiscated by the goblins here that players can find. Simply lighting a fire under an upstairs boiler with Incendio or Confringo unlocks a section deeper within the Ruins where Rowland and his wand are located. A secondary item in this quest, Rowland’s wand rests on a table in a room to the right past the larger metal door players opened by alighting the boiler.
The final stage of this quest involves freeing Rowland from his goblin induced imprisonment by delivering his wand in Hogwarts Legacy back to him. Past the hallway with orange and purple sphinx banners, there are more enemies here that players have to defeat in combat. Finally, at the far end of the hall, Rowland may be heard through the large bronze door at the end, ending the quest that started when players get his map and use it to track down the stray spell caster in Hogwarts Legacy.
