Wondering when or if you should sell or destroy unwanted gear in Hogwarts Legacy, then this guide is made just for you. Upgrading your character with gear is a constant in RPGs, and this game is no different. While exploring the magical castles of Hogwarts and nearby areas like Hogsmeade, you’ll find many chests. Many of them have gear inside to help you upgrade your character. However, collecting all of it is a surefire way of running out of inventory space. In this guide, we’ll discuss what you should do with the unwanted gear.
When to Sell or Destroy Unwanted Gear in Hogwarts Legacy
To manage your inventory space, Hogwarts Legacy allows you to destroy your gear in the inventory. However, we strongly advise against it. Every gear you find can be a source of Gold Coins, which are rare and highly valuable. The best thing to do is sell the unwanted gear at any Hogsmeade shop.
In the initial stages of the game, you’ll get to explore the various shops at Hogsmeade. After progressing further, you can visit these shops to sell the gear in your inventory. The prices may differ depending on the type and rarity of the gear, but you will make Galleons for sure. Talking about rarity, the Hogwarts Legacy gear is divided into the following categories:
- Standard Gear (Gray Background)
- Well-Appointed Gear (Green Background)
- Superb Gear (Blue Background)
- Extraordinary Gear (Purple Background)
- Legendary Gear (Orange Background)
The standard gear has no traits or buffs. But as you move toward Legendary, the gear provides offensive and defensive buffs and trait slots. The only time we recommend destroying gear is when you find a higher-level gear but don’t have space in the inventory. So it’s crucial you manage your inventory to avoid losing out on the Gold. Moreover, you can also increase your inventory space by completing Merlin’s Trials.
