Hogwarts Legacy: How To Make Money

Money is one of the key aspects of many RPG games because it is used to buy a lot of required stuff during the game’s journey. Hogwarts Legacy uses Galleons as its currency, and there are few ways to earn it directly. Let’s dig into the best ways to make money in Hogwarts Legacy.

Key Takeaways

  • Galleons are used to buy potions, brooms, and necessities in Hogwarts Legacy.
  • There are four basic ways to get money: Selling Beasts, selling excess gears, eyeball chests, random loot bags, and chests.
  • Selling beasts is one of the easiest ways to farm Galleons.

  • The game includes a massive number of random chests, loot boxes, and loot bags scattered across the game, which gives 2-200 Galleons.

What Are Galleons?

Galleon is the currency in Hogwarts Legacy, similar to the gold coins available in many RPG games. They are used to buy stat boost items, combat utilities, brooms, and equipment in the Room of Requirement. Therefore, it is one of the things you need to look for while going for your quests.

Unlike many other games of the same genre, completing missions or side-quests does not give any money in Hogwarts Legacy. Hence, the only methods to earn money include selling beasts you capture from the wild, selling excess gear items, and looting eyeball chests and other random chests. A small amount of money is also dropped by enemies when they die, but it is very insignificant. For example, killing an Inferious drops 2 Galleons only.

Best Ways To Make Money

Selling Beasts

Beasts are wild animals present in specific locations on the map. You can capture any beast from its habitat and then release it in the Vivarium. Then, you can sell the beast at the Brook and Peck shop in Hogsmeade. This shop is unlocked in the game’s early stages, so you can conveniently come here for trading, but the beasts are unlocked later in the game.

You must complete “The Elf, The Nab-Sack, and The Loom” quest to carry on with this method. This will open the Vivarium and allows you to rescue beasts using the Nab-Sack spell. The most efficient way to capture a beast is to use some spell-like Leviosa to stop it from running away, or you can directly use the Nab-Sack on them as well Beasts respawn after one day passes according to the game’s time, so you must be patient.

To sell a beast, go to the shop and open the “Sell” tab. There will be an option to trade all your beasts for Galleons Selling one beast gives you 120 Galleons, irrespective of its species You can continue to farm more Galleons as you need Unfortunately, this is the only infinite source of income in Hogwarts Legacy.

Selling Gears

Another standard method to acquire more Galleons is to trade off your excess gears. You can do this on any shop in the “Sell” section except for the Brook and Pech shop because it trades in beasts only. Every gear item sells for a different price depending on its rarity.

Item Type Price
Legendary 200
Extraordinary 150
Superb 120
Well-Appointed 60
Selling Prices of various Gear Items

This method is comparatively a better method of getting money in Hogwarts Legacy because you will get a lot of gear as you progress missions or open chests. The game allows you to store only a few items, so you will eventually have to sell them. This method works for almost all of the game’s runtime due to the massive distribution of gear chests, and it provides a better trade value option too.

Eyeball Chests

The Eyeball Chests are strange-looking chests in different locations on the Hogwarts Legacy map. These chests are a little large with an eyeball on their front. Unlocking them grants 500 Galleons per chest, and there are a total of 25 chests scattered across the game’s world.

However, you must have the “Dillusement” spell to unlock this chest. This spell makes you invisible in anyone’s eye. First, get out of sight of the chest and then use the Dillusement spell. Once you become invisible, go to the chest and open it using the action key (Press F – Steam Version). If you go into the line of sight of the chest without being invisible, you cannot open it.

Random Loot Bags And Chests

One of the most obvious ways to get money in Hogwarts Legacy is by opening random chests and loot boxes. You will observe a lot of boxes, chests, and sacks lying in random places like streets, houses, bridges, or in the open.

These boxes usually contain Galleons or some gear item. Either way, you can get easy money from them. Nevertheless, these loot chests have only a small amount of money, which usually ranges from 2 Galleons in some sacks or dead enemy corpses to 200 Galleons in some chests or large loot sacks.


This guide summarized the most efficient ways to gather money or Galleons in Hogwarts Legacy. Although all the methods discussed above are limited to some extent, the selling beasts method is the best one in terms of longevity. All other chests or gears can run out at some time in the game, but the beasts will continue to respawn. However, the fastest way to get money, a small amount, is by selling gear items as they sell for a reasonable price.
