Hogwarts Legacy Collections: A player can be seen casting a spell

Collections are one of the many tabs of items you can find in Hogwarts Legacy as you are getting to grips with the game. It is a useful tab filled with almost everything you will discover and come across while playing. To get you started, we will go over the various categories of Hogwarts Legacy Collections and where you can find some of the items within them generally.

This guide touches on a lot of the other aspects of the game which we have already covered including Hogwarts Legacy wand customisation, Hogwarts Legacy wand handles, and more. All of this information was gathered during our Hogwarts Legacy review playthrough.

Hogwarts Legacy Collections explained

Hogwarts Legacy’s Collections are effectively a log of a variety of items, gear, and things you find throughout the world. They keep track of everything you find and have earned.

They are important for being able to understand just how much of the game you have completed to some degree. While they don’t track things like Hogwarts Legacy quests, they do keep track of items like Hogwarts Legacy’s Traits, the Hogwarts Legacy Beasts, and items for the Hogwarts Legacy Room of Requirement.

Hogwarts Legacy Collections categories

There are a total of 10 Hogwarts Legacy Collections categories:

Revelio Pages
Wand Handles

A lot of these categories are self-explanatory. But some of the vaguer ones include Tools, which are effectively potions and combat tools you can use to help yourself out in combat. Revelio Pages are found around Hogwarts and the Hogwarts Legacy map. Appearances are different visual looks you can choose while customising your character. These affect Hogwarts Legacy Transmog.

Finally, Conjurations are items you can use in all-in-one room in Hogwarts once you have unlocked the Room of Requirement in Hogwarts Legacy. Each of these has dozens of boxes to check and items to collect so you should be busy for a while!

Where to find Hogwarts Legacy Collections items?

Hogwarts Legacy Collections and the items in them can be found in a number of locations, but generally, they are found in the following areas:

Tools Bought from stores or crafted
Enemies Found in Dungeons and in the world
Appearances Found in chests and as rewards for completing quests
Revelio Pages Found throughout the world and obtained by visiting new areas
Beasts Scattered in beast dens around the world
Traits Found from Bandit Camps, chests and a number of other locations
Wand Handles Found in chests and as rewards for completing quests
Conjurations Found in the world and upon returning butterflies to their frames
Ingredients Found throughout the world
Brooms Unlocked as rewards or bought

You will find the vast majority of these items naturally as you are playing and there is so much to do that you will come across Hogwarts Legacy chests and more while exploring and solving puzzles. So, you shouldn’t worry about missing out on anything.

If you do want to find everything in the game then our Hogwarts Legacy walkthrough is the article for you as it is packed with guides and tips. With this overview of the Hogwarts Legacy collections you can begin improving your build and skill as you equip some of the Hogwarts Legacy best spells and Hogwarts Legacy best Talents.

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.
