Are you wondering if there is a possibility to get an Onyx Hippogriff mount without Pre Ordering Hogwarts Legacy?
Well, this guide will help you with all the answers to your questions.
Hogwarts Legacy- Can you get Onyx Hippogriff Mount without Pre-Ordering?
Hogwarts Legacy is the most awaited Harry Potter game ever. Even though it is more of a wizarding world game that has no link to the Harry Potter universe in any way since the game takes place almost 200 years before him.
The game features a wizarding world with modern-day graphics, it almost feels real and looks stunning. There is so much to do in the game that at no point in time you would possibly get bored.
You have main story missions, you have side quests, and you have a huge detailed world to explore and discover new things. Along with that, the game features magical creatures that you can tame and keep as pets.
Is it possible to mount Onyx Hippogriff and Thestrals without Pre-Ordering Hogwarts Legacy?
Lets us first talk about Magical Creatures in Hogwarts Legacy. The game would feature a lot of magical creatures but not all of them are mountable. Mounting basically refers to riding the creature. Only a few magical creatures would be mountable in the game.
This brings us to the question about the Onyx Hippogriff and Thestral mounts if in case we have not pre-ordered the game.
Well, Hippogriff is a magical creature that has a front half of an eagle and the back half of a horse. They can sore really high into the air.
This is what a Hippogriff looks like in Hogwarts Legacy.
Thestrals on the other hand can be seen by only someone who has witnessed death in their lives. Our character can see Thestrals which introduces a very interesting take on his/her backstory.
This is what a Thestral looks like in the game. Both the Hippogriffs and the Thestrals are mountable creatures who can fly around the map.
Now to answer the question of whether you can actually get the Onyx Hippogriff without Pre-Ordering.
Well, the Onyx Hippogriff is basically a dark Hippogriff skin that is exclusive to Pre-Orders only. There is nothing special about the creature except for the fact that it is dark-skinned. A regular Hippogriff on the other hand is white-skinned.
This is a regular Hippogriff that the character is flying on.
While this is the dark-skinned Onyx Hippogriff.
This is the only difference. So the answer is- No, you cannot ride an Onyx Hippogriff without Pre-Ordering the game but you can definitely ride a regular Hippogriff if you manage to tame it.
The same goes for Thestrals. Pre-Ordering the Deluxe or Digital Deluxe Editions gives you the Dark Arts Battle Arena, Dark Arts Garrison Hat, 72 hours of Early Access, and the Thestral Mount. You are basically getting a tamed Thestral as you begin the game. I am pretty sure you can still tame Thestrals in the game and mount them even if you have not Pre-Ordered Hogwarts Legacy.
