There are a total of 25 Eye Chests that you can find in Hogwarts Legacy. A majority of these are located inside within Hogwarts Castle but some of them can also be found around Hogsmeade. These are an excellent source of Gold Galleons since these chests contain 500 Gold Galleons each. However, opening these Eye Chests can be a little annoying if you do not know what you are doing since it is not as simple as walking upto them and pressing the interact button. In this guide, we have detailed everything you need to know about opening the Eye Chests in Hogwarts Legacy.
Hogwarts Legacy Eye Chests
While exploring the of Hogwarts Legacy, you will come across Eye Chests, which are easily identifiable by a central eye that observes your approach. These chests are automatically locked if they detect you, preventing access to the goodies inside. In order to open these Eye Chests, you will need the Disillusionment spell. This spell essentially makes you invisible, allowing you to easily get past the watchful eye. Once you have learned the spell, find an Eye Chest, simply cast the spell on yourself while you are out of its range, and open it to get the rewards.
Do remember that it is very important to cast the spell while you are outside the field-of-view — if the gaze is already fixated on you, it will not work. If you are ever caught by the Eye Chest before opening it, try to change the zones before trying once more.
It is also important to note that these Eye Chests are not marked on your map and are usually found in hidden pathways, around corners, and can be opened as soon as you enter the Hogwarts Castle.
Learn the Disillusionment
You will learn the Dislillusionment spell from Sebastian Sallow during the Secrets of the Restricted Section questline — simply continue through the campaign until you get it.
Once you open the Eye Chest, you will find a total of 500 Gold Galleons inside. Since there are quite a lot of these scattered throughout the game, farming these should net a whole lot of Gold Galleons to get potions, ingredients, recipes, and whatnot.
Lastly, it is also important to note that you can further improve the Disillusionment spell to get Talents that allow you to sprint while being invisible, have less chances of being spotted by other characters, etc.
No Loot inside Eye Chests
Some people have reported getting no loot from opening the Eye Chests. This is most likely due to an unintended bug that should get fixed in a future update.
