Eyeball Chests are special chests found all over Hogwarts Legacy’s world. To open them and earn a heap of Galleons, players must use a specific charm.
Hogwarts Legacy’s Eyeball Chests are something of an enigma for players, requiring the use of a special charm to sneak past their ever-watchful eyes. While exploring Hogwarts and the wider wizarding world, players will often come across particularly devious puzzles with no obvious solution, requiring them to get creative with their charms and curses. Eyeball Chests can be found all over the game world, including in Hogwarts Castle and Hogsmeade Village, and are filled with lots of Galleons. This makes them an incredibly valuable resource players should track down, and luckily, opening them is far simpler than it might seem.
Hogwarts Legacy’s Alohomora Charm might seem like the obvious answer, but although the Unlocking Charm is great at some things, it won’t work on Eyeball Chests. Instead, players need to have progressed through the main story past the point where they’ve enlisted the help of Sebastian Sallow in order to sneak into the library. Being rather proficient with a range of charms and curses, Sebastian will teach players a useful spell that’ll make sneaking around Hogwarts a lot easier.
How To Open Eyeball Chests In Hogwarts Legacy
Essentially, all players must do to unlock Eyeball Chests is to use the Disillusionment Charm. It’s far simpler than opening one of the game’s devious Arithmancy Doors and players might not have come up with this particular solution simply because it seems too obvious. The Disillusionment Charm renders players practically invisible, allowing them to sneak up on Eyeball Chests and pop them open. It’s worth noting that players won’t be able to open an Eyeball Chest if they use the Disillusionment Charm directly in front of one.
Instead, it’s well worth performing the charm in a spot where the Eyeball Chest can’t see it. Players will know if they’ve used the charm correctly if they’re able to interact with the chest once they get close to it. Each Eyeball Chest will give players a tidy sum of 500 Galleons, which is incredibly useful and hopefully keeps players from having to sell their unwanted gear in order to fill their coin purses.
Earning Galleons in Hogwarts Legacy is actually fairly tricky, so players can use Eyeball Chests as a quick and easy way to overcome any money troubles they might be having. Galleons are used to purchase everything from potions and potion ingredients to broomsticks, so players looking to make their Hogwarts Legacy journey as smooth as possible ought to track down and open a few Eyeball Chests.
