While playing hours upon hours of Hogwarts Legacy, players will acquire quite a hefty list of items that will need to be sold or dropped to stave off the looming "Your Gear Slots are full" notification. As players collect exclusive items and purchase unique materials from in-game shops, naturally their gear slots will quickly fill up.
It's possible to manage the limited slots effectively and destroy what's necessary to pick up a more valuable item. Although, the better and easier solution here is to get more gear slots.
If you're hunting for more space, here's everything you need to know.
How to get more gear slots in 'Hogwarts Legacy.'
As you gain ingredients for potions and engage in battles with dark wizards all over Hogwarts Legacy, you'll eventually run into Merlin Trials that can give you more gear slots.
The Merlin Trials are challenges and puzzles across the open-world map waiting for you to solve when possible — marked as a round leaf icon on the map. By finishing them successfully, you'll accumulate more gear slots as you progress throughout the game.
You can unlock up to 20 additional gear slots for your efforts, meaning your maximum inventory space in Hogwarts Legacy can be 40 gear slots. There are 18 Merlin Trials overall, but only solving a certain number of them will grant you gear slots:
- 2 Merlin Trials
- 6 Merlin Trials
- 10 Merlin Trials
- 14 Merlin Trials
- 18 Merlin Trials
You'll need Mallowseet leaves to activate Merlin Trials in 'Hogwarts Legacy.'
You'll learn this from a quest NPC in Lower Hogsfield that will introduce you to the Merlin Trials, the first of which requires five Mallowseet leaves to activate.
Every puzzle will require Mallowseet leaves, so we recommend stockpiling them and getting the seeds as soon as possible to start growing the plants without spending your Galleons.
Besides wracking up more plants, cultivating Mallowseet leaves becomes a safety net because you can lose them after a few attempts at solving a Merlin Trial. Having backups ready for those moments will save you the hassle.
Can you store items in 'Hogwarts Legacy'?
In Hogwarts Legacy, there isn't an item storage option available for players to use at their leisure. It would make things easier for managing certain items but would defeat the purpose behind Merlin Trials.
If you're worried about losing equipment you like on your witch or wizard, you can actually access that item anytime within the Appearance menu. So, if your gear slots are brimming with equipment pieces of all types, feel free to sell them off or destroy them to open up space.
