How To Farm Gold Fast In Hogwarts Legacy

Money makes the world go round, and it's no different in Hogwarts Legacy. Similar to real life, having enough Gold is critical for buying all the necessary items and resources to progress in the game. From upgrading your broomstick or gear, you'll need a fair amount of Galleons to get ahead. That said, it should be no surprise that many players might wonder about the fastest way to get Gold in Hogwarts Legacy.

But don't worry, if you're just starting out or struggling to earn enough Gold, we've got you covered. In this guide, we'll share some of the best ways to earn more Galleons in Hogwarts Legacy. From selling spare gear to searching for hidden chests and earning rewards, you'll be able to make enough Gold to progress through the game with ease.

REMINDER - Hogwarts Legacy was due to launch on PS4 and Xbox One on April 4, but now won't release until 5 May 2023.

The Best Way To Farm Galleons In Hogwarts Legacy

While there are several ways you can get Gold in Hogwarts Legacy, how fast you can rack up the cash in Gringot's Wizard Bank will largely depend on your level and difficulty in completing the tasks. That said, we've listed some of the best ways to get Gold fast in Hogwarts Legacy below, especially if you're still starting or new to the game.

Trading surplus gear

If you're a new player, you'll likely get loads of additional items, which you should not dismantle or remove. Instead, you should trade your surplus gear for extra Gold in Hogwarts Legacy with NPC vendors (especially the ones in Hogsmeade). By doing this, you can get rid of unwanted items and purchase more powerful pieces in their place.


This method needs no explanation. You can earn Gold easily by looting around the world of Hogwarts Legacy, looking through treasure chests, bags, and hidden locations. Some of these items can be sold for quite a large profit. As a tip, walk around Hogsmeade or the Castle and spam the Revelio spell to spot potentially lucrative tradable items.

Open Disillusionment chests

Once you've unlocked the Disillusionment charm in Hogwarts Legacy (after the "Secrets of the Restricted Section" quest), you can open special "eyeball" chests while invisible to earn 500 Gold per chest. These chests are found across Hogsmeade and Hogwarts Castle, meaning you can rack up tons of Gold relatively quickly.

Sell Magical Beasts

You can also collect and sell Beasts in our Nab-Sack to a vendor at Brood and Peck in Hogsmeade for 120 Gold each. Please note you can only do this after completing "The Elf, The Nab-Sack, And The Loom" quest. In particular, you can farm a ton of Puffskeins at the Puffskein Den between the entrance to the Forbidden Forest and Hogsmeade (you can fly there on your Broom).
