Hogwarts Legacy is an action role-playing video game set in the wizarding world of Harry Potter, where you can explore the castle, attend classes, learn spells, and interact with other characters. At the start of the game, you are given the option to create your character and customize it to your liking. But when it comes to customizing, Hogwarts Legacy doesn’t stop there.
As you progress through the game, you’ll automatically complete different challenges, which will reward you with pieces of gear appearance, letting you further personalize your character. Therefore, the following guide explains how to unlock and change gear appearance in Hogwarts Legacy.
How To Unlock Gear Appearance Items
To obtain pieces of gear appearance, you’ll have to complete challenges divided into five categories: Combat, Quests, Exploration, Field Guide Pages, and Room of Requirement.
During the Welcome To Hogwarts, you will be first introduced to the Field Guide Challenges, where you must find and collect Field Guide Pages to unlock pieces of gear appearance. To check the available challenges, open the main menu, select the Challenges tab, and pick one of the five categories. In each category, you’ll see the challenges, your progression, and the gear appearance reward.
After you obtain a piece of gear appearance, let’s see how we can equip them.
How To Change Gear Appearance
While in the main menu, select the Gear tab to see all your equipped items. Now, hover the cursor over one equipped item to prompt the text box showing the item’s name, rarity, magical properties, and sell values.
At the bottom of the text box, you’ll also have the option to change the appearance of the equipped item. Press Square on the PlayStation Controller to view all the available pieces of gear appearance.
Select one of the gear options with your cursor and press (X) on your controller to change appearance. If you purchased the Hogwarts Legacy Deluxe Edition, you could use the change appearance feature to equip the Dark Arts Cosmetic Set.
That’s how you change the equipment appearance, but feel free to check our Hogwarts Legacy Strategy Guide for more tips, tricks, and walkthroughs.
