Rescuing Rococo Quest Walkthrough

To start this quest, go to Bainburgh and talk to the shopkeeper Agnes Coffey. She’ll explain how she was out on her daily walk and Rococo, her pet Niffler, saw something shiny in Henrietta’s Hideaway and took off. She asks you to rescue him before the Ashwinders discover him.

From Bainburgh, head West to the ruins on Manor Cap peninsula. You’ll find Ashwinders there, but if you’ve never visited this location before, then Infamous Foe Dunstan Trinity will also be there. It’s best to prepare your combat spells and approach the area slowly. I suggest going invisible and sneaking into Henrietta’s Hideaway to avoid the enemies.

Next, head down the right side of the ruins, along the cliff’s edge, to a small underground passageway.

How to Solve the Spell Blocks

Once inside, you must solve the spell blocks to move forward. Cast Glacius on the right block to activate it. Light the brazier in front of the statue to your left using Confringo or Incendio to get the second spell block. Move it to its platform using Accio, then cast Confringo or Incendio again to activate it.

Once through the door, you’ll notice a trail of coins indicating the path to Rococo. The room below, however, is full of Ashwinders. Either take them all out or sneak past them. Following the coin trail, take the staircase to the left of the Hippogriff statue. At the landing, go to the right and along the balcony.

How to Get Through the Trap Door

The next section features a trap floor that will transport you through a room and back into the hall in front of the trap. There are a few methods for dealing with this pesky floor.

  • If you have Arresto Momentum, you can cast it on the floor to prevent it from moving you.
  • Using Accio/Wingardium Leviosa, move an object onto the floor. While the trap transports that object, quickly pass through the area.
  • This is the most difficult of the three. Lure an enemy into the trap so they trigger it. While they’re being transported, quickly move through that area of the hall.

How to Place the Spell Blocks

As with previous rooms, this one is also full of Ashwinders. You have to battle your way forward, however, as you’ll need to place two spell blocks. To get the Levioso block, head up the staircase.

Across the room, you’ll see the block on a balcony. Grab it with Accio and place it on its corresponding platform. Cast Levioso to activate it.

The second block is a bit trickier. There’s a set of bricks that appear out of place under the upper walkway on the same side as the stairs. Walk toward those, and they’ll open to reveal another room behind them and the spell block.

Grab the block and head up the stairs until you come across another wall that opens and brings you back into the previous room. Once the block is placed on the platform, cast Confringo or Incendio to activate it and open the door.

How to Catch Rococo

Continue to follow the trail of coins down the steps and into the next room, where you’ll see Rococo. Use a spell, like Levioso, to keep him from running away and then the Nab-Sack to catch him. This room also contains the Musical Map, which starts another side quest. Use the platform in the northern part of the room for a quick exit.

Return to Bainburgh and Agnes Coffey. You can decide to keep Rococo, which makes Agnes extremely upset and adds a new Niffler to your collection. Since Nifflers aren’t the rarest of magical beasts, and you get to keep The Irondale Pilferer from another side quest. So keeping Rococo doesn’t seem to be the best choice unless it is in line with how your character is.
