Hogwarts Legacy has a vast array of gear, as the game’s world is full of unique clothing items including handwear, face wear, headwear, neckwear, outfits, and cloaks/robes, each with unique levels, stats and monetary values. One thing the player might notice when sifting through chests and obtaining new items are the various colors and descriptions of the obtainable wizarding gear. Here is a rundown of the gear rarity ranks in Hogwarts Legacy and what each of the colors and values mean.
Gear Rarity Ranks in Hogwarts Legacy – Listed
Standard Gear in Hogwarts Legacy
Standard gear is just regular clothing (as you read this article right now, you are probably wearing some standard gear of your own). This gear rarity can be identified by its gray text and dark background. In Hogwarts Legacy, Standard Gear has no magical properties and will not buff your offensive or defensive stats. Standard gear can be sold for 30 Galleons, but in my experience some shops will not even buy Standard gear, as the non-magical items can be traded for zero Galleons in many cases. Either destroy or sell these items, as they will just take up inventory space.

Some Gear Tips in Hogwarts Legacy
One important tip for gear management in Hogwarts Legacy gear is to examine the offensive and defensive stats of your items. Just because an item is rarer than another does not necessarily make it better. Most importantly, make sure to manage your inventory well, as you only have a finite amount of gear space in Hogwarts Legacy, which can fill up very quickly when exploring the game’s many locations, which are teeming with new gear seemingly around every corner, hidden in every nook and cranny.
