Where To Find (& Catch) Thestrals In Hogwarts Legacy

Among the fantastic beasts you can rescue in Hogwarts Legacy is the Thestral: a fearsome winged horse only visible to those who’ve witnessed death. Despite their spooky appearance and reputation for being bad omens, Thestrals are intelligent, loyal creatures and among the rarest beasts that can be caught in Hogwarts Legacy.

If you own the Deluxe Edition, you will eventually unlock a rare Thestral flying mount in Hogwarts Legacy named Sepulchria that you can also add to your Vivarium in the Room of Requirement. Like Unicorns, which you can only find in one specific creature den, Thestrals can only be found and caught at two creature dens in Hogwarts Legacy’s open world. Luckily, one of these dens is located relatively close to Hogwarts.

All Thestral Locations

The most convenient location to find Thestrals is in the North Ford Bog, north of Hogwarts Castle. There are quite a few Merlin Trials in Hogwarts Legacy‘s North Ford Bog, and you may have already visited this creature den if you’ve learned how to breed beasts by helping Deek during The Foal of the Dead quest. Alternatively, there is another Thestral den far to the south, on the eastern shores of Marunweem Lake. You can find and capture Thestrals at both locations.

To successfully capture a Thestral, you should use the Disillusionment Charm, which allows you to get close to a herd without startling the Thestrals. Without stealth, most beasts will be able to escape before players can use the Nab-Sack to capture them. Then, using some spells such as Arresto Momentum, Glacius, and Levioso, you can immobilize a Thestral and use the Nab-Sack.

You must press the capture button five times to catch a Thestral, but you can always stop to cast any immobilizing spells again.

After catching a Thestral, you can release it into the Room of Requirement vivariums, where it produces Thestral Hair when fed and brushed. Thestral Hair is a rare resource used for certain gear upgrades in Hogwarts Legacy, which gives you even more incentive to find and catch these spooky yet oddly beautiful creatures.

How To Catch a Shiny Thestral

You can also catch a shiny version of a Thestral using the same methods. However, the Shiny version of a Thestral is a lot more uncommon and can only be found east of Marunweem Lake. In addition, shiny Thestrals look slightly different from the regular version as it is light grey or white and have a silver hue. Shiny Thestrals can also white shiny offspring when bred in Hogwarts Legacy‘s Vivarium.
