What Should I Do If My Gear Slots Are Full in Hogwarts Legacy? Answered

If you ever find that your Gear Slots are full in Hogwarts Legacy, you’ll want to make up some more space for any shiny treasure that you may discover out in the wild. There are two ways to do this.

Firstly, you can simply destroy the items that you no longer want in the in-game menu, which will free up a slot for any new items that you may want. To do this, simply go into the ‘Gear’ section of the menu, hover over the specific item that you no longer want to keep, and press and hold L3 for a few moments.

This will permanently destroy the item, so make sure it’s definitely something you no longer want. Of course, with this specific method, you don’t get anything in return, so the second method may be more appealing.

The second method is to sell unwanted items to traders. There are plenty of traders in Hogsmeade if you’re struggling to find a trader to sell to. To sell items to a trader, simply speak to them and ask to trade. Once the menu opens up, you’ll be looking at the items you can purchase from said trader. Press R1 to toggle over to sell items and here, you’ll be able to sell specific items for money, which is a lot more appealing than simply destroying the item without any recompense.
