During your playthrough of Hogwarts Legacy, you'll encounter the quest to 'Search the tomb for the helmet' during the Helm of Urtkot quest.

This is a main mission in Hogwarts Legacy in which you need to find the Helm, earn Ranrok's trust and find out his plans. If you're struggling with the puzzles, here's a walkthrough of how to search the tomb for the helmet in Hogwarts Legacy.

How to complete 'Search the tomb for the helmet' in Hogwarts Legacy

After proceeding through the first several steps of the Helm of Urtkot quest (speaking to Sirona, finding Lodgok at the Hog's Head Inn, and following him to the tomb) you'll set off inside the tomb to retrieve the quest's namesake goblin heirloom.

The 'Search for the tomb for the helmet' section of the quest is split up into multiple sections, each with a moth-gate entrance to the next - with some combat segments sprinkled in between as well. However, you'll find that the moths are missing from each door.

To proceed through each door, you'll need to find the moths and use Lumos to guide them back to the door until you have enough to open. Like with how to solve mirror puzzles in the game, you can easily find the location of each missing moth by casting Revelio.

After the easily-solvable first two moth doors, the next two have a bit of extra difficulty to them.

If you're stumped on trying to retrieve the elevated moth #3 for the third door, you need to make sure one of the other two moths in the room is placed on the room's central mechanism to activate it. Then, cast Depulso on the platform below moth #3 whilst standing on it. Cast Lumos again to guide moth #3 to unlock the third door.

Reaching the fourth moth door is pretty straightforward, simply needing you to follow the marker through the tomb. However, the only sort of puzzle you need to keep in mind at this point is the hanging crate in the large open room as shown below.

Perform a basic cast on the hoist holding the crate, and it will open up the reservoir you need to jump down into - and then swim through - to head deeper into the tomb where the room with the fourth moth door is.

Guide one of the first two moths found on the bottom floor, and guide it to the central mechanism - which works the same way as the one used for the third moth door.

Then, stand on the rectangular platform opposite the mechanism, and cast Depulso on it twice to reach the higher level where the moth door is. Instead of heading for the moth door though, go the opposite way and retrieve a moth on the other side of the raised platform. Jump across whilst guiding it with Lumos, and add it to the door.

Then, moth #2 needed for the fourth door can be seen right next to said door on the left. It's still close enough to come to you when you cast Lumos after using Depulso. Finally, simply use Lumos on moth #3 seen by the right of the door, and you can move forward.

After you realise the tomb has been raided already, you just need to go kill the thieves Lodgok directs you to. Take down some Ashwinders and troll, search the camp, and the Helm or Urtkot is yours to give to Lodgok.
