How to make money fast in Hogwarts Legacy

Explore the world & loot in Hogwarts Legacy

disillusionment chest in hogwarts legacy

These one-eyed chests are hard to find and even harder to open.

While it may seem obvious, exploring the map and finding loot is the easiest and probably one of the most effortless ways to make money in Hogwarts Legacy.

You don’t even have to go out of your way to find chests and loot, simply play the game and explore areas that Quests take you to and you’ll have money in no time.

The best chests for Galleons are the Disillusionment chests, which are the chests with one eye. Simply cast the Disillusionment charm to be able to open these chests and you’ll be awarded 500 Galleons.

Sell gear to Hogwart Legacy’s vendors

Another obvious but extremely effective way to make money fast in Hogwarts Legacy is collecting and selling gear. Now, you don’t want to sell your best gear, but you’ll stumble upon a lot of gear that won’t be as good as whatever you have equipped.

Sell this unused gear at any vendor in Hogwarts Legacy for Galleons, the higher the rarity, the more money you’ll get. You’ll quickly realize that it’s well worth going out of your way to sell items rather than discard them.

Make sure you complete Merlin Trials to upgrade your gear inventory so that you can hold more and not miss out on selling gear as opposed to discarding it.

Sell beasts at Brood and Peck in Hogwarts Legacy

Beasts may be hard to part with, but selling them is a great way to get Galleons.

Lastly, once you unlock the Vivarium in the Room of Requirement, players are able to capture beasts and either keep them or sell them at the Brood and Peck shop in Hogsmeade.

It doesn’t take much effort to capture beasts in Hogwarts Legacy, and there are icons on the map that mark their territory. If you want cash fast, get an easy capture of Mooncalfs and Puffskeins and sell them at Brood and Peck.
