The bridge near the Viaduct Courtyard has four golden firepit bowls that sit atop stone blocks. Players are able to interact with these firepits and they will also notice a gold symbol on the bottom half of the stone block. There are four of these stone blocks with firepits and symbols on them on the bridge.
To start off with this puzzle, you need to use some sort of fire spell, like Incendio, on the top of the bowl. This will ignite the firepit. Do this with all four firepits. Next, you can go to the Great Hall side of the bridge and look down at the ground. You will see a golden hatch with the same symbols that are on the stone blocks.
All you need to do is match the symbol with the right number (I, II, III, or IV). To find the right number, go to each firepit and you will see an “Interact” prompt pop up. Press the button to interact and you will see a number on the bottom of the firepit change. Match up the number with the corresponding symbol that the golden hatch on the ground indicates. If you just want a simple answer, though, here are all of the correct numbers and symbols along with an image of the hatch.
Once you’ve matched up the right symbol with its corresponding number, the golden hatch on the ground will open, allowing you to go down a ladder, and open the chests. You have now completed the Bridge Puzzle in Hogwarts Legacy.
