Take the Biscuit Quest Walkthrough

While walking the streets of West Hogsmeade, you may hear a call for someone to rescue Biscuit. Head down the small staircase and you will find Garnuff. When you speak to him he explains the poachers have taken his Mooncalf, Biscuit. Agree to help him and you will get the location for the poacher camp that has her. 

Before heading out it is important to note that you will need Alohomora to unlock the cage holding Biscuit. You can still go and take defeat the poachers but will not be able to free Biscuit, resulting in a second trip and facing more poachers.

The specific poacher camp you are looking for is in North Ford Bog. If you have it available, fast travel to the East North Ford Bog Floo Flame and then head East until you find the camp. 

Defeat the poachers and unlock the cage holding the Mooncalves, upon which they will dart out in various directions. When selecting each of the Mooncalves, the one you want will appear with the name Biscuit. You can cast Disillusionment so they don't get startled, leaving you able to find Biscuit faster.

Once found, use either Levioso, Accio, Arresto Momentum or Glacius to slow her down. Then use the Nab-Sack to catch her. 

Once you have caught Biscuit return to Hogsmeade and Garnuff. At this point you can either decide to keep Biscuit or return her as originally expressed. If you keep her, Garnuff will forever hate wizardkind. 

That is how to complete the side quest "Taking the Biscuit" in Hogwarts Legacy. If you are looking for more game guides, check out our extensive list of Hogwarts Legacy guides.
