During the Take the Biscuit quest in Hogwarts Legacy, you have to find and rescue Biscuit, who is a white mooncalf with black spots.
This action role-playing game, Hogwarts Legacy, invites gamers to assume the role of a witch or wizard.
The game is based on the classic Harry Potter novels, but it is set in the late 1800s, before the novels’ events. You can learn different spells as you attend classes and complete quests.
There is an array of quests for you to complete in Hogwarts Legacy, one of which is Take the Biscuit. However, some players are struggling to identify Biscuit.
As the main character of the game, you will learn that you can see ancient magic, which was thought to be extinct. As you follow the main story, you will discover more about the ancient magic as you learn valuable spells.
Side quests will become available as you play through the main story in Hogwarts Legacy. The side quests are divided into 3 regions, namely Hogsmeade, Hogwarts Castle, and the Highlands. Although it is not mandatory that you complete these quests, it is advisable that you do.
This is because each quest that you complete will reward you with items that can later be used throughout your adventures.
Hogwarts Legacy: Which one is biscuit?
One of the side quests that you can complete is Take the Biscuit, which introduces you to one of the quirkier creatures in Hogwarts Legacy. Players can start this quest by talking to Garnuff in the Hogsmeade area.
Garnuff is a friendly goblin who is concerned about his mooncalf, named Biscuit. He tells you that a few poachers have kidnapped his mooncalf and requests that you find her. For this quest, you have to go to the camp where Biscuit is held captive and free her from her cage.
Although the quest is fairly easy to complete, your character should at least be on level 20 before you attempt to complete it. After accepting the quest, you must follow the quest marker to where Biscuit is.
The poachers will attack you as soon as you enter the camp, so you should be ready for a fight. Players should remember that certain poachers will block your attacks with magical shields, therefore, you must defeat the weaker poachers first.
When you have defeated the poachers, you will find a large cage in the middle of the camp, which where Biscuit is being held. She is a white-coloured mooncalf with black patches, and you have to use the Alohomora spell to unlock the cage. .
As soon as the cage is unlocked, all the magical creatures in the cages will flee in different directions. You can use the Levioso spell to prevent the animals from running too far away from you.
What to do with Biscuit after freeing her
When you have opened Biscuit’s cage, she will run away, but you have to catch her. You therefore have to use your Nab-sack, which can be obtained from the Elf, the Nab-sack, and the Loom quest, to capture her.
This means that you have to complete the main story quest before you try to complete Take The Biscuit quest.
After capturing her, you have to return to Garnuff and inform him about your successful capture. He will thank you by rewarding you with the Beast Rescuer Robe, 300 Galleons, and experience points.
Take the Biscuit bug
Some players are unable to capture Biscuit. If you happen to unlock the cage’s lock before you are on the rescue step of the quest, you may get locked out of the quest, and thus, you will be unable to complete the quest.
There are several steps that you can take to fix the bug. Firstly, you can restart the game, which seems to have worked for most players.
If this does not work, you can check for file integrity on the Steam client. If there are corrupt files in the folder, you must repair or replace the files before you attempt to complete the quest.
The Alohomora spell
One of the spells that you will learn as you progress in Hogwarts Legacy is Alohomora, which allows you to pick locks.
In order to learn the spell, you have to complete the The Caretaker’s Lunar Lament quest. When you know the spell, you can use it to open locked doors, cages, and more.
To use Alohomora, you have to approach and interact with a lock to cast the spell. This will trigger a lockpicking mini-game that you have to complete to open the cage.
The game is quite simple, as you only need to move the inner and outer circles slowly until the gears in the bottom right and in the middle start rotating.
