The game Hogwarts Legacy has just released a few days back and is on the hype. It is set in an open world that features challenging enemies and monsters in droves, and none of these are so weak and timid that they can be defeated without proper gear. The main purpose that gear serves in the game is that it helps strengthen your attributes, thus allowing you to face enemies that are even twice your character’s size. You have to be on constant lookout for better and better gear, but also keep upgrading the high tier pieces that you would come across in your gameplay. The following guide helps you understand how you can upgrade your gear in Hogwarts Legacy.
How can you upgrade your gear in Hogwarts Legacy?
Unlocking The Enchanted Loom
To do this, firstly, you need to make sure of the fact that you have all the correct items from various different beasts for the desired upgrade. Before you upgrade, you will need the ‘Enchanted Loom’, that is the crafting station in the game. Here is how to get this crafting station and then work on your upgrade.
Firstly, keep playing the game till the point you complete the main quest of The Room of Requirement. Then keep moving ahead till you complete the Nab Sack, The Loom quest, and The Elf. While doing these, you are bound to get the Conjuring spell that is required for the Enchanted Loom. After you get the loom, go to the Room of Requirements, conjure and put it there. When you place it, from your total allocation, 8 Moonstones will be deducted.
Upgrading gear at the Loom
To move forward with crafting gear and upgrading, you will, as previously mentioned, firstly require the prerequisite materials. This you will collect from either tending to the beasts(in the vivarium) or by simply buying them from Brood and Peck(in Hogsmeade). Once you do this, the next steps are quite easy.
Firstly, go and interact with the Enchanted Loom in the Room of Requirements. Then, select or hover over the gear you wish to upgrade. Press X(or PC equivalent) or ▢ to upgrade. Then, lastly, select Upgrade Gear to finalize your desired upgrade.
You can make use of the Identification Station that you will find in the Room of Requirements to get to know all about the stats and talents of the gears and inspect it. Remember that each gear is upgradable thrice to the levels – Super, Extraordinary, and then Legendary.
Adding Traits to gear at the Loom
You can also add traits to your gear from the Enchanted Loom. They help add more offense and defense buffs to the gear when you equip it. Here is how to do that.
Firstly, go and interact with the Enchanted Loom in the Room of Requirements. Then, select or hover over the gear you wish to add the trait to. Press Y (or PC equivalent) or the Triange button to view the traits. Then, select or hover over the trait you wish to add from the list of the Discovered Traits (on the left). Press X (or PC equivalent) or A to Weave trait.
We recommend that you upgrade your gear as they can prove to be of great added utility that they would give you during combat.
