Hogwarts Legacy: How to find and catch Giant Purple Toads?

The Hogwarts Legacy consists of 13 magical beasts to be captured. The dens where they reside are available on the map and are often found near water bodies. In class, Professor Howin’s students are assigned to capture these beasts and nurture them in the Vivarium, which specifically has room for requirements. This comes after completing Desk’s quest called The Elf and the Loom.

After looking after and taking care of the beasts, Giant toads will provide players with enough Toad warts to upgrade the gear and also produce potions. However, this all comes after players catch the beasts, which is the primary objective of students. So, let’s take a look at how to get these beasts under control and capture them.

In terms of their physiology, giant toads look almost like one would imagine on the first try. These creatures are intriguing and would peek in for curiosity. However this also calls for them to become timid and will make a run for it if they sense any danger.

Giant toads are not exactly friendly, but they are not hostile towards the witches and wizards. If they chose to flee it would be an incredible task to keep up with their speed in Hogwarts Legacy.
