Go to Mooncalf Den

Found northwest of Hogwarts past the Quidditch grounds is Mooncalf Den where Mooncalves can be rescued. Use the Floo Flame to easily fast travel to and from the area to speed up the process.

Capture a Mooncalf at night time

Once you arrive at Mooncalf Den, change the time to night. Get rescuing! You can find around 8 Mooncalfs during the dark hours. To quickly advance the time from day to night, open the map and press the R3 button.

Sell the beasts to Brood and Peck in Hogsmeade

How do you get more coins in Hogwarts Legacy?

Money is incredibly useful in Hogwarts Legacy for recipes, better gear, materials, and much more. What can you do other than the above to get more coins and make money fast in Hogwarts Legacy then?

Well, you can always sell your unused gear. Rid yourself of hats, gloves, and robes that are not being worn, and earn yourself some easy money. As we mentioned earlier, Monster Chests are a great way to earn money too. Even if you sell old items of gear, you can still use the Transmog feature to use them as a cosmetic item if you like the particular style of some gear with lower stats worth selling off.

Sell beasts such as Mooncalfs and Puffskeins to grab yourself some quick Galleons. We also invite you to try and spot some shiny beasts while you’re out on your adventures! Although they don’t seem to have any more market value than their non-shiny counterparts.
