Are you looking for the Hogwarts Legacy best gear? Let us help you out when it comes to crafting a setup that works for you as you are sorting through all the clothing items you are finding as you explore and complete missions.

Even early on in Hogwarts Legacy you will have tons of gear to equip. But, not all of it is worth using so we will help you sort the quality items from the throwaway ones as you are busy completing Hogwarts Legacy quests and hunting down all those Hogwarts Legacy Field Guide Pages.

Hogwarts Legacy best gear

The Hogwarts Legacy best gear is:

  • Legendary handwear, face, headwear, neckwear, cloaks, robes, and outfits
  • Extraordinary handwear, face, headwear, neckwear, cloaks, robes, and outfits

Legendary gear is the highest rarity of gear in the game and as such is often the most powerful with a Trait slot for you to use and the ability to upgrade the gear multiple times. The base stats on it are also quite good. Following on from that, if you don’t have a bunch of Legendary gear, then Extraordinary gear is a good backup.

The stats and upgrade potential of these aren’t quite as great but these purple gear items can really help elevate your Hogwarts Legacy builds and allow you to take on tougher enemies.

Gear is repeated often across loot tiers and they don’t have unique stats at all. So, there aren’t really any specific bits of gear we actually recommend and you can look however you want thanks to Hogwarts Legacy Transmog.

But, that covers what we think you should be running in your gear slots and the best gear in Hogwarts Legacy. For more ways to find a character set-up that works for you, read through our Hogwarts Legacy best Spells and Hogwarts Legacy best Talents guide and more in our Hogwarts Legacy walkthrough.

Hogwarts Legacy has drawn considerable criticism during its development, largely due to the fact that the creator of the Harry Potter series, J.K. Rowling, has made a number of transphobic remarks on social media in recent years.

While Avalanche has confirmed that J.K. Rowling is not “directly involved” in the development of Hogwarts Legacy, it is working with “her team” and Portkey Games, a Warner Bros. label dedicated to launching new experiences inspired by J.K. Rowling’s original stories. It is currently unclear whether she will earn any royalties from the game’s sale, but it is likely given it is based on her original body of work.
