Sell your unused gear

You’ll likely acquire a lot of gear through your explorations, so why not sell some?

One of the first, and arguably most passive ways to make money fast in Hogwarts Legacy is to simply sell the gear you don’t need.

While traveling around Hogwarts and beyond, you’ll likely come across a variety of robes, hats, gloves, and more, meaning you’ll likely be holding onto a lot of spares.

So, if you want to make money quickly without having to hunt around a lot, occasionally head over to a vendor and sell all your unused gear. This will bring back a tidy profit without you needing to spend any money.

To sell your gear, simply head into any of the shops at Hogsmeade and speak to the vendor there. You’ll be able to sell whatever you want to them, within reason.

While you won’t exactly get a lot of money from each chest, this is another type of easy income that doesn’t require you to spend any previous coins or go too far out of your way.

The eyeball chests, otherwise known as Disillusionment Chests can be found around Hogwarts and Hosmede. Once you open them you’ll get 500 Galleons, meaning, once you’ve found them all, you’ve made a quick and easy profit.

As for the other chests, some grant you unique rewards, like the House Chest, while others grant you a small monetary reward.

To get some easy money without having to go out of your way, simply keep an eye out for chests and you should find yourself a lot richer, while also completing a few achievements.

Puffskeins are easy money for very little effort.

The last way to make some quick and easy Galleons is to sell some adorable beasts. Being able to breed such animals means you’ll always have a way to make a tidy profit without spending much at all.

To do so, you’ll want to focus on the Mooncalfs and Puffskeins due to how easy they are to catch, as well as the fact that they make some decent money for such little effort.

Understandably, you will need to unlock the Room of Requirement, which opens up the Vivarium. However, once you’ve done this, simply catch some adorable Mooncalfs and Puffskeins and you’ll be well on your way to endless riches.

To put this trick into perspective, each Puffskein will bring in 120 Galleons, meaning, after a short catching adventure, you’ll likely be bringing in upwards of 1,200 Galleons in less than an hour. They respawn every in-game day so just repeat the process and you’ll be fine.
