Knowing where to find troll bogeys in Hogwarts Legacy is important for Professor Onai's assignment when you get it but also general potion creation. However, the first time you'll really care is when Professor Onai sets you a task to field test Depulso on a levitated enemy and collect a troll bogey. The first one is easy - just find any old enemy to cast spells on. The troll, though, is more specific and if you can't find one, this can leave you hanging. 

There are a range of options when it comes to finding trolls though, from completing specific missions, to finding lairs and just buying them. Let's take a look at all the different ways you can complete this objective. 

This is similar to a few goals, like when you have to find Mandrake locations or complete the Ghost of our love mission, where all you need is a location. If you're having trouble with it, let me help you.

Where to find troll bogeys in Hogwarts Legacy

There's a Troll lair in the north of the Forbidden Forest and another north of Feldcroft. You also fight one at the end of the mission 'The Helm of Urktott' which should be live when you get the assignment. You can also buy troll bogeys from J Pippin's Potions in Hogsmeade.

You'll get Professor Onai's assignment the day after you've completed your first trial. It'll ask you to field test Depulso on a levitated enemy and collect troll bogeys. Crucially, the assignment specifically says your field guide won't show you where to go, leaving the work up to you. 

There's a few options here, with the most optimised probably being to start the mission 'The Helm of Urktott'. You'll should have this the same time as the assignment and while it has a few stages, the last step ends in a troll fight that should get you a bogey. 

After that there are a few lairs you can seek out where a troll will spawn for you to fight and drop a bogey on defeat. 

There is a troll lair in the northern end of the Forbidden Forest, with a Forest Troll you can fight. Go here on the map to get some some bogeys:

You can also buy troll bogeys from J Pippin's Potions in Hogsmeade although this is probably your best option post assignment when you need them for general potion making.

Hopefully, that should sort out all your troll bogey needs in Hogwarts Legacy, whether for Professor Onai's or just general poptions like Invisibility.  

The release of Hogwarts Legacy has been the subject of criticism and debate due to J.K. Rowling's public stance on gender identity, which continues to challenge the inclusivity at the heart of the Harry Potter community. Here is our explainer on the Hogwarts Legacy controversy.
