Hogwarts Legacy Gear

Now, let’s move on to the guide! The gear system in Hogwarts Legacy can be pretty confusing at first. Whether you’re wondering about the different rarities, or you’re looking for more information about gear traits, our guide covers it all!

Hogwarts Legacy Gear Rarities

Keep in mind that every rarity of gear, except Legendary, has fixed stats. You can also only equip pieces of gear that match your Wizarding Level. Gear that is too high-level for your character at the time, will be shown with an icon of a lock.

  • Green – Well-appointed
  • Blue – Superb
  • Purple – Extraordinary
  • Orange – Legendary

Hogwarts Legacy Gear Types

Some pieces of gear can be upgraded in The Room of Requirement, and you can place Traits into them! Additionally, you can also customize the appearance of certain types of gear, and replicate the appearance of another while keeping the same stats.

  • Facewear
  • Headwear
  • Handwear
  • Neckwear
  • Cloaks and Robes
  • Outfits

Gear Traits

Traits can be placed into some pieces of gear to increase or add bonus stats! It’s a pretty useful feature when upgrading your character. You can add Traits to your gear by using the loom in The Room of Requirement.

  • Gear with a Superb rarity have a Trait Slot level of 1
  • Gear with an Extraordinary rarity have a Trait Slot level of 2
  • Gear with a Legendary rarity have a Trait Slot level of 3

To unlock the ability to use traits with your gear, you need to complete the quest “The Elf, The Nab-Sack, and the Loom”. Once you complete this quest, you’ll receive a unique loom that allows you to equip traits to specific pieces of gear!

Upgrading Gear

You can upgrade pieces of gear at the loom in The Room of Requirement. Keep in mind that gear can be upgraded a total of 3 times before they reach their maximum level. You also need to make sure that you have the correct materials when performing upgrades.

You should get into the habit of using the Identification Station in The Room of Requirement, as it’s a useful feature that allows you to inspect your gear. This allows you to find out exactly which stats and abilities your gear has!

What is Legendary Gear?

Legendary gear is the best rarity in the game. These pieces of gear have a level 3 Trait Slot, which means you can add the strongest bonuses in the game. Legendary pieces of gear can only be found in specific areas, such as inside chests, collections, and boss/enemy drops.
