Snape, Snape, Severus Snape. Dumbledore! If you know what is probably the most famous and by far the funniest Harry Potter song, you will be even happier with the following Easter Egg. But if you just want to know where the famous Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher is hidden in Hogwarts Legacy, then pay attention.
On the way to the Room of Requirement
Before you enter the Room of Requirement for the first time, you must first walk through a level crammed with junk with Professor Weasley. And amidst all the chaos you’ll find a hilarious reference to Severus Snape – or rather, a Snape doll, which appears to be a reference to the famous YouTube video “The Mysterious Ticking Noise” is.
In which mission can I find the Easter Egg? You will receive the main quest “The Room of Requirement” from Professor Weasley after about 12 hours of play.
You can see what the Easter Egg looks like in the video on the YouTube channel Sliver in Time:
