Hogwarts Legacy: Best Legendary Gear [In-Depth Guide]

Hunting down the best legendary gear can make your master magician stand out with style and grace!

The Best Legendary gear in Hogwarts Legacy can help you overcome the most dubious of challenges with ease, as most quests and bosses will require a specific level threshold to complete. It is worth noting that the legendary gear in this game is certainly not unique unless you apply traits to it, or in rare circumstances, the gear drops with these traits pre-equipped on them. Without these traits, they are almost cosmetic-based with defense or offense stats, which will be my main focus as I list them individually.

Key Takeaways
  • Hogwarts Legacy is filled with different types of legendary gear, but only a few of them may stand out as the best to equip for the early or late-game journey.
  • Players can modify the legendary gear with several traits to make them unique, but aside from that, they only provide Defense or Offense stats and a visual flair.
  • These traits have three different levels, and each piece of legendary gear offers level 3 trait slots.
  • Legendary gear, when dropped in the world, will have a varying gear score based on the player’s current level in the game, so hunting them down towards late-game is advised.
  • Players can hunt down the legendary gear in quite a few ways, from completing quests and looting special chests as well buying them straight from vendors.
  • There is also a known exploit right now which allows players to save scum and open chests from receiving their desired legendary gear piece without any setbacks.

Velvet House Cloak

The Velvet House Cloak is one of many legendary gear pieces that you can obtain via unique chests scattered across the world, which will also more than likely prove to be one of the easiest ways to obtain legendary gear in the early game of Hogwarts Legacy.

As the name implies, the velvet color, along with the golden lacing and insignias, allow your character to achieve an elegant look if that’s what most players are looking for in an armor piece. Furthermore, I found that the dark color also went great with my other gear, which had a similar tonality of shade.

Brown Eye Of Newt Goggles

These goggles made it into my list solely due to the fact that they gave me vibes to none other than Alastor “Mad-Eye” Moody, whom many Harry Potter fans may recognize from the movie franchise. While these googles are certainly not similar at all to his magical eyepatch, they have the same eerie feeling that you can’t help but use them due to their goofy quality.

Sanguine Mask

The Sanguine mask is the perfect legendary gear for your character, especially if you’re trying to achieve a fully disguised or masked look. It is another gear piece featured in the random world pool drops, or you can also try your luck at purchasing it from vendors too. Moreover, you also might just be able to pull off a Red Hood (a character from the Batman series) cosplay while wearing it.

Celtic Hero Cape

As shown in the image above, the Celtic Hero Cape offers another decorative feel to your character, as the light pink tonality of the cape, along with the gold embroidery, is sure to please almost anyone. One of my co-workers found this legendary piece of gear in the early game via the in-game vendors, but you can find it practically anywhere in the world via chest drops.

Charcoal Lock Scarf

The Charcoal Lock Scarf is just one of the various scarves that you can equip for your character in the game. Just like the name implies, the charcoal coloring might not be as accurate, but who knows? You might even slowly adore its dark colors and maybe even receive a trait pre-equipped on it, just like I did in the image above.

Ornate Two-Tone Gloves

As shown in the image above, the Ornate two-tone gloves feature two distinctive colors. I found them pretty early on in the game, and alongside the Stinger dueling gloves, which we’ll mention later in my list, they are fantastic gloves that can be paired with almost any kind of getup of your Witch or Wizard.

Embroidered Formal Uniform

The Embroidered Formal Uniform is an excellent choice for players who are looking to achieve a classy or just an upper-class style for their character. The jacket of the uniform will also feature your house insignia on the chest, allowing you to represent with utmost grace while exploring the world.

Purple Dragon-Eyed Spectacles

If you’re looking to customize your character with a comical look, then the purple dragon-eyed spectacles fulfill that requirement. As you can see from the image above, they’re sort of like gag glasses. Still, instead of a comically large nose and mustache, the large reptile-like green eyes and the purple scale around it allow them to fit perfectly with the supernatural fantasy theme of Hogwarts Legacy.

Emerald Bloom Scarf

Similar to the black charcoal scarf, the emerald bloom one features a distinctive dark turquoise color with leaves and other notable patterns as textures on it. While there is certainly quite a variety of scarves to choose from, I found this one the most appealing to use on my Ravenclaw house character as it represents its colors splendidly.

Gold Dragon-Eyed Spectacles

Since I had already included the purple dragon-eyed spectacles, it only seemed right to include the gold variant, too, as that mildly gold tint doesn’t look too comical in my eyes. Furthermore, if you’re still looking to achieve that ‘Mad Hatter’ look, then by all means, try your luck at scoring these glasses out in the world via chests or just by buying them from vendor stocks.

The Best Ways To Get Legendary Gear Early

While I have mentioned it a few times already, I strongly suggest keeping your eyes peeled for large treasure chests when completing certain puzzles or even going off the beaten path during quests. These treasure chests will reward you with legendary gear, and you can, of course, apply the save-scum exploit, where you load your save file prior to opening the chest to receive the specific legendary gear piece that you want for yourself.

Aside from that, the best way to get Legendary gear pieces as early as the first few hours of the game is by visiting the Gladrags Wizardwear shop located in the small town of Hogsmeade, whose precise location I have marked in the image above. The inventory here may also occasionally rotate, so checking back here often may surprise you with never-before-seen legendary or other rarity gear too.

While these legendary gear pieces will cost you a hefty sum of coins, the good thing is that you now know where to spend that hard-earned cash should you choose to need a new legendary gear piece as quickly as possible. But on that note, if you want to earn coins quickly, then you will be able to do that with ease by regularly selling off your low-level or unused gear at the shop, allowing you to make heavy purchases easily.

Important To Know

There is no specific order or ranking of the best legendary gear for the game since not only do the stats on them tend to drop based on RNG (Random Number Generated), but they are also tied to your current level as you receive them. Furthermore, the only real difference between the legendary gear among the other rarities is that they have level 3 trait slots.

Traits are essentially like modifications as they can provide bonuses to your gear in the game, and they can be attached to the gear via the Loom in the Room of Requirements. In addition to upgrading your gear, applying these traits or them coming pre-equipped with it will make most gear pieces stand out as special. Moreover, every gear piece, including legendary ones, will provide either a defense or offense stat boost to your character.

Aside from that, they only provide a decorative flair, which honestly is worth it, too, as the fashion sense of the game is enticing enough so that each of your Wizard or Witch may stand out from the rest of the students at the Academy. Continue down below for a list of a few of my favorite legendary gear to use in the game.

The Wrap-Up

According to what I could find from a recent Subreddit Post, the legendary gear pieces are certainly worth keeping if you manage to find a couple during the early game. Otherwise, the best course of action is to wait until your character is near the Level Cap, and then by obtaining these legendary tier gear, they will drop based on your current level, which means they will have better stats in either defense or offense.

While on the subject, it is also crucial to upgrade your Full Gear Slots so that your character may equip the maximum amount of armor or accessories on it. The Best Talents In Hogwarts Legacy go hand-in-hand with a few powerful spells, such as Incendio and Flipendo, both of which are excellent options to use during combat.

Still, if you want to feel more overpowered, then consider unlocking the Unforgivable Curses, which includes the quests to not only unlock Crucio but also to unlock Avada Kedavra, one of the most iconic dark sorceries of the entire Harry Potter universe. Aside from that, this wraps up my guide on the Best Legendary Gear in the game and how you can go about obtaining it.
