Money isn’t the most forgiving aspect of Hogwarts Legacy. The in-game economy is tough, but we’ve got a few techniques to help you become a true wizard-entrepreneur.

[Updated March 2, 2023 4:52 PM] RPGs all have their own economic system. In Hogwarts Legacy, the wizarding world isn’t the most lenient when it comes to Galleons. Inflation has hit the village of Hogsmeade hard and you will need to raise a significant amount of money in order to provide yourself with the basic equipment to create your potions and cultivate your plants. To help you build a little nest egg quickly during your first hours of play, here is our guide to money in Hogwarts Legacy.

How to make money in Hogwarts Legacy?

Hogwarts Legacy includes, like all modern open-world RPGs, two major parts of its gameplay. The first is its storyline, forcing you to progress through a fairly linear and directed story, the second is exploration. The wizarding world has many secrets to uncover, and you will need to take the time to walk or broom in the Scottish countryside to understand all the mysteries. And that’s good because the first point of this guide is of course, rigorous exploration. Hogwarts Legacy takes advantage of hiding chests and purses all over its open world, so do not hesitate to use the Revelio spell VERY often to literally see the said caches through the walls. You will be able to collect dozens of items of equipment that you will absolutely have to keep to resell them in shops around the world.

But you will have noticed, picking up dozens of purses or scarves giving you 30 or 60 Galleons apiece is not going to make the schmilblick much progress. That’s why our friends at Avalanche Software have slipped in a few little puzzles to solve to increase your capital. We talk in particular about “eye chests”, these little monsters each contain 500 Galleons, and what’s good is that we explain how to open them in our guide just below. The other puzzle strongly associated with your magic bank account are the Gates of Arithmancy. These essential doors in Hogwarts contain small treasures in objects or Galleons. And again, we explain how to open them in our other article below.

So in summary, to get rich in Hogwarts Legacy, we advise you to follow these points:
