I. Earn Galleons from Hogwarts Legacy Upon Arrival in Hogwarts

Earn Galleons from Hogwarts Legacy Upon Arrival in Hogwarts

At the start of the game, Professor Fig teaches you the Revelio spell. Use this regularly to see any hidden chests and other interesting points on the map as you explore around during your first day in Hogwarts. Ordinary chests and other containers have a few galleons, and some gears you can use early on and sell later once you reach Hogsmeade.

⚠️ Important: Never open chests anymore if your inventory is full.

If you do, any high-level or worse, legendary item you're supposed to get from the chest won't go into your inventory, as raised by other players.

Also stick to newbie areas for now and don't go skipping classes to explore and loot chests in high-level areas yet because even legendary gears are adjusted to your current level (unlike in say, Cyberpunk 2077), and it seems like there's no way yet for them to respawn anymore once you level up.

Aside from that, you can also find more random clothing you can sell by swimming around nearby outside after class.

II. Earn Galleons from Hogwarts Legacy During Early - Game

Earn Galleons from Hogwarts Legacy During Early - Game

Once you reach this part, you can learn the Disillusionment spell through Sebastian Sallow. This spell is not only helpful when sneaking around enemies, but also in avoiding being seen by the Eye Chests while attempting to open them. They're a jumpy bunch in the most literal sense: casually walk by and they instantly float away to guard their precious galleons inside.

Each Eye Chest contains 500 galleons. There are a total of 25 Eye Chests so far: 11 inside Hogwarts and 14 in Hogsmeade, giving you a total of (11 + 14) x 500 = 12,500 galleons. Not bad for a start!

Unfortunately, once looted, the galleons don't spawn anymore. But it's still a nice boost early on in the game especially when you're planning to buy the Silver Arrow Broom, and also upgrade your broom.

If you're on PS5, you can craft the Liquid Luck potion or Felix Felicis which will instantly reveal the Eye Chests on your map for one day. 

Liquid Luck potion or Felix Felicis

Since that item and another PS5 exclusive, the Hogsmeade shop keep quest, are actually included in the game files, some talented modders are now working on unlocking them for PC too.

But if you're up for the challenge of a fun treasure hunt, and just need some hints here and there, then you may refer below. I'll be also uploading a video guide soon.

A. Hogwarts Eye Chests Guide

C. Side Quests

Another way to earn galleons is to request additional payment in some side quests and maximize what's being prompted in the game. Unlike with say, Stardew Valley or Sims where every interaction of your character has either a positive or negative impact on some friendship or relationship points, here in Hogwarts Legacy, it's very forgiving (at least in the side quests) and doesn't have any effect on how your main quest line will go.

D. Sell Gears

Unlike with other RPGs where you have to keep any clothing item you fancy to transmog it later on, in Hogwarts Legacy, you don't have to do it. The moment you acquire an item or gear, its skin is automatically part of the fashion style that your character can use later on in higher-tiered gears so make sure to regularly sell any extras you have to clear up your inventory space and earn extra galleons -- it's not much: around 60-90 per item -- but it can still accumulate over time.

Complete all the Merlin Trials to gain 20 additional inventory slots, so you don't have to go back and forth that often to Hogsmeade. 

Unfortunately, even if we have dormitories in-game, it's just for lore related to Hogwarts Houses and common rooms, since there aren't any chests or cabinets we can use to dump our items into.

III. Earn Galleons from Hogwarts Legacy During Late - Game

Earn Galleons from Hogwarts Legacy During Late - Game

As of this writing, it seems like there's no way to be cheeky in gaining substantial riches if you just wanna explore around and keep doing other characters' side quests and fun side activities, instead of progressing in the Main Quest (oof.. guilty here lol).

Actually, the game seems to penalize you if you don't do the latter because there seems to be no other way (yet) to get the Nab-sack which can help you earn an average of 5000 galleons (or more!) a day. The only way to get it so far is through a house elf named Deek who will hand it to you during The Elf, Nab-Sack, and The Loom quest under Prepare for Your Search for the Final Keeper.

How to Get the Nab-sack in Hogwarts Legacy

It's all good though because The Loom is also very useful in upgrading your gears.

A. Magical Beasts Bizness

Magical Beasts in Hogwarts Legacy

Once you have your own Vivarium and Nab-sack, you can start capturing rescuing magical beasts. Go back to the Puffskeins den from the Main Quest and get more of them, and then sell them here at Brood and Peck shop in Hogsmeade for 120 galleons each. 

Rinse and repeat for as long as you like. You can also do this for Jobberknolls and Mooncalves, although with the latter, you have to do so only at night time.

If you don't want to go hopping around multiple dens, you can sit (and sleep lol) on the ground by opening the Map and clicking the Wait time skip at the lower right. Beasts respawn every 24 in-game hours, so click Wait twice, and then back to business.
