Hogwarts Legacy – Venomous Revenge (Side Quest)

Game Guides

Venomous Revenge is another optional side quest within Hogwarts Legacy. It can be found and collected over at Hogsmeade. Here we can find and speak with the muttering man

This specific side quest sees us attempting to steal a Venomous Tentacula from and old ex-business partner.

SIDE QUEST: Venomous Revenge
QUEST GIVER: Muttering Man (Ackley Barnes)
LOCATION: Hogsmeade
GUIDE: Head behind the Three Broomsticks over in Hogsmeade and we will encounter a man named Ackley Barnes. Who seems to be complaining about someone.

Upon speaking to him we will find out that ‘this someone’ is actually his ex-business partner, who goes by the name of Alfred Lawley. Apparently the two had a disagreement regarding a Herbology supply business. Alfred seems to have regarded Ackley as being ‘too volatile to work with’.

Ackley will then mention a Venomous Tentacula that Alfred has had for quite some time and treats it like his ‘most prized possession’. Our task is to go and get this ‘Venomous Tentacula’ and bring it back to Ackley.

Entrance To Alfred Lawley’s Cellar

We can actually find Alfred Lawley’s cellar within Hogsmeade, it is not too far away. Just follow the objective marker. As soon we find it, head inside.

As soon as we find ourselves in the cellar we will see Alfred Lawley walking around, as if guarding the area. Maybe he already suspects something? Who knows? But for now make sure to equip and cast the ‘Disillusionment’ spell. To avoid being detected.

There will be a door to the right with a Level 1 lock. Unlock it using the ‘Alohomora’ spell and proceed into the next area. In this area we will come across several enemy targets, the Thornback Scurriour.

Follow the path to the left and we will come across the Venomous Tentacula.

Locating The Venomous Tentacula

Inspect and ‘take’ the Venomous Tentacula. With that we can now report back to Ackley Barnes. Who is near the Three Broomsticks, back outside.

This will then conclude the side quest.

REWARDS: Dragonhide Herbologist Gloves, 180 XP
