Bronze Knuts, silver Sickles, and gold Galleons are all part of Harry Potter's legal wizarding tender, and due to the mythologys fan base, it is now known that there are 29 Knuts in a Sickle, 493 Knuts in a Galleon, and 17 Sickles in a Galleon. This currency is expected to be introduced in the game.
The State of Play presentation for Hogwarts Legacy shows a merchants wares in Hogsmeade, where the UI menu for purchasing items at Pippins Potions allots the amount of Knuts, Sickles, and Galleons players have. Then, each item indicates how much it costs, in comparison to Wiggenweld Potions in any other fantastical open-world RPG.
It's possible that Hogwarts Legacy players already have money at Gringotts.
Firstly, it is important to remember that Hogwarts Legacy may already have a pool of Knuts, Sickles, and Galleons reserved for the player. In Harry Potter legend, witches and wizards store their coins in a subterranean vault beneath Gringotts, the wizarding bank that is located in Diagon Alley and managed by goblins.
The Gringotts vaults are accessible via a rickety mine cart along a rollercoaster-like track, which created enjoyable and suspenseful scenes in Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone on PS1. In the movies, Harry discovers that his parents had left a substantial inheritance for him in one of these vaults.
It's quite possible that a similar fund will be available to players in Hogwarts Legacy. For example, players may already have this money on their person at the beginning of the game. The player-character may also be seen riding an underground mine cart, which might suggest that players should at least visit Gringotts.
If WB Games Avalanche wishes for players to begin the game with some Knuts, Sickles, or Galleons in hand, then Hogwarts Legacy will need to have money in Gringotts for them. If not, there may still be numerous ways that players may earn them in Hogwarts Legacy.
Throughout the Hogwarts Legacy, players may earn Knuts, Sickles, and Galleons.
It is unlikely that Hogwarts Legacy will choose to use in-game currency techniques that are similar to those used in other open-world RPGs.
One approach might be to sell items or consumables to merchants in Hogwarts Legacys Hogsmeade, perhaps from wares they loot or excess items they may craft and hoard, and the same currency system would most likely apply to selling as it does to buying.
If and when players loot areas, Knuts, Sickles, and Galleons may be earned, and money may be part of the rewards for different quests that players may complete for other characters in Hogwarts Legacy. However, certain apparel and other goods will be available for players to purchase, whether or not they earn money in one way or another.
Hogwarts Legacy will be released in the holiday 2022 for PC, PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
