Hogwarts Legacy Eyeball Chest Guide

Wandering around the school of wizardry but can't seem to unlock weird looking chests? We're here to help!

Hogwarts Legacy Eyeball Chest

With a brand new game on the market, it is time to break it down into pieces and help our fellow gamers with the challenges they face throughout the Hogwarts School of Wizardry! Today we’ll talk about a rather mysterious but weird chest that players are having trouble opening. It is called the Hogwarts Legacy Eyeball Chest!

You can find these Eyeball chests scattered across the map. However, you’ll find a significant number of them inside the School compared to the outside world. To identify the Eyeball chests from any ordinary chest, you can notice the weird eye wiggling around, scanning the place and even the students!

They’ll also stare at you suspiciously, and if you, like the rest, try to get close and see what’s inside, they’ll retaliate!

Key Takeaways

  • Players cannot open Eyeball chests with brute force or strength-based spells you cook up in the potions class.
  • It requires brains and not brawns, so you’ll have to use your brains to open the Hogwarts Legacy Eyeball Chests!
  • There is a simple spell you can learn during a mission with Sebastian. The spell we’re talking about is none other than the Disillusionment spell.
  • Think about it, what does the eye want? It instead looks at you suspiciously, so the only way to unlock it is if you’re Invisible!
  • Once the eye is unable to see you, you’ll get a prompt button to open the Eyeball chest.
  • You’re rewarded with 500 Gold each time you open an eyeball chest.
  • The gold you get is very useful and rare, considering you need help earning it.

Hogwarts Legacy Eyeball Chest

Secrets of The Restricted Section
You can unlock the Disillusionment Spell from the main quest!

You’ll need to complete the “Secrets of the Restricted Section” main quest to get your hands on the Disillusionment Spell. During the quest, you’ll get Sebastion’s help to sneak around the School. He’ll teach you the charm to turn invisible. Once you’ve learned the charm/spell, you’ll be able to use it for multiple purposes! One such includes opening the eyeball chests and earning Gold Galleons!

Disillusionment Spell
You’ll need to unlock the Disillusionment Charm!

To open the chest, you need to stay away from its line of sight, which means you need to make sure your character is hiding away from the eye of the chest. Once you’re covered, use the Disillusionment spell and approach the chest. You will get a prompt to open the chest once you’re close enough. Opening the chest will reward you with 500 Gold Galleons!

You’re making a mistake if you can’t find the prompt button that allows you to open the chest. I’ve identified the problem. You’ve used the charm in front of the chest! Avoid doing that and try again with the above method; you’ll see it works!


Eyeball Chests in Hogwarts Castle

Eyeball Chest Location
You can find the first chest in the Library!

On the other hand, a player may see more of these chests within the castle as compared to the outside world! The reward you get for opening them can be useful for buying expensive recipes and ingredients to craft them.

One such spell is the invisible potion. However, you unlock it further past the game. This means you cannot use the invisible potion to open the eyeball chest in Hogwarts Legacy!

I believe there are 10 +/- eyeball chests inside the castle. You can earn up to 5,000 Gold Galleons by finding and opening them without having to leave the School! The numbers may be random, but here goes nothing. You’ll find a chest in the library’s restricted section. I’ll leave the exploring to you!

Remember to use the Disillusionment charm away from the chest for it to work! The next chest is relatively close to the Library Annex, where you’ll have to enter the Greenhouses. As you wander around, you will find a giant tree with its roots submerged in water. There is a stairway behind it that leads underground. You will find the eyeball chest of Hogwarts Legacy at the end of the route!

You’ll need to head toward Professor Fig’s Classroom at the Astronomy Tower to find the fourth chest. Go inside the bathroom, and you’ll find the chest sitting at the end of the wall in front of you! Hide behind one of the bathroom stalls and use the spell before approaching the eye chest!

Now visit the Defence Against the Dark Arts Classroom Foo Flame and head toward the second floor. Proceed down the stairs and turn left to find the chest lurking behind the shadows! We’ve collected three, no, four Eyeball Chests, seems there are six or more to go?! I’ll leave the rest of these Eyeball Chests In Hogwarts to find, guys.


There are more than twenty eyeball chests you can unlock in Hogwarts Legacy. Each of these chests rewards a player with 500 Gold Galleons, which means it can be fairly easy to earn more than 10,000 Gold early on in the game and buy those expensive recipes! So far, there seem to be ten chests inside Hogwarts Castle. I’ve given you four locations, meaning you can earn 2,000 Gold Galleons right off the bat! The trick is to use the Disillusionment spell and open the chest!
