Collection Chests contain a random assortment of items and gears that come in handy during your adventure through Hogwarts Legacy. There are a total of 155 chests, and the rewards are randomized every time, so what you get will be different (or could be the same, which is highly coincidental) from everybody else’s. This guide lists the locations of some of the chests in the game, categorized by region. So if you’re tired of searching for them, give this a read.
