Hogwarts Legacy Money Glitch Explained

There’s not exactly anything too tricky to the best method to rack up a good beginning amount of Galleons either all at once or over a period of time, depending on your patience level.

Early in the story, you are given the Disillusionment Charm as part of the Secret of the Restricted Section main quest. This allows you to turn invisible while exploring Hogwarts and its surrounding areas. Aside from its important quest uses, the Charm has another use.

You’ve undoubtedly run into those white chests with the eyeball on the top that can’t be opened with spells and will lock when you get close. The trick to them is to move out of the chest’s line of sight and then use the Disillusionment Charm to turn invisible and sneak back to the chest to open it for a guaranteed 500 Galleons.

If you want to make 6000 Galleons in one go, visit Hogsmeade when you have the Disillusionment Charm and hunt down the 12 chests spread around the map. This can be done anytime, as those chests can be found at any point once you have access to Hogsmeade.

How to Do Puffskein Money Glitch

Another excellent glitch to exploit for amassing Galleons is to farm Puffskeins that you can sell at the Brood and Peck shop in North Hogsmeade. This will only be viable after you’ve obtained the Nab Sack and Arresto Momentum, Levioso, or Flipendo.

The best place to do this is at a Puffskein Den east of the forbidden Forest, just past the abandoned ruins. Head to this location, and then go to the very edge of the Puffskein Den so that the Puffskeins are within your range. Once this is the case, use the spells listed above to incapacitate them and capture them with the Nab Sack. You should be able to get between 3 and 6 once you get the timing and spacing down.

After capturing as many as you can, head to Brood and Peck and sell the Puff Skeins to Ellie Peck. She’ll give you 120 Galleons for Puffskein, and won’t ever run out of funds to trade with you. Once you’ve sold her all of the creatures you gathered, head back to the Forbidden Forest and then wait for at least one day and night cycle. This will reset the Den, and you can then repeat the process to make as much money as you’d like.
