Hogwarts Legacy Twitch drops

Hogwarts Legacy Twitch drops have been and gone, but it's always good to prepare for when they appear again, and here's how to do just that.

Hogwarts Legacy Twitch drops and where to find them

Looking for Hogwarts Legacy Twitch drops? These viewer rewards give you the chance to bag some exclusive customisation items for your player character in the wizard game. As with any Twitch drops, all you have to do to be rewarded is watch streams, so it couldn’t be easier to claim these in-game goodies.

As we touched upon in our Hogwarts Legacy review, the RPG game’s clothing items can be pretty drab, so any excuse to increase your Hogwarts Legacy wardrobe collection and transmog options is a welcome one – especially when that includes pointy Dragon-Eyes spectacles and the exclusive Merlin’s cloak. Here’s everything you need to know about Hogwarts Legacy Twitch Drops.

Hogwarts Legacy Twitch Drops and requirements

The Twitch drops for Hogwarts Legacy have now ended, with no further rewards having been announced.

How to claim Twitch drops

The watch time requirements don’t have to be met all in one go, and you can keep track of your progress on your Twitch Drops page. Once you have met the requirements, you’ll receive a notification, and must then claim the items from your Twitch Drops inventory.

The creator of the Harry Potter series, JK Rowling, has made a number of transphobic remarks on social media in recent years. Warner Bros. has the licence to make games based on Harry Potter. While the details of that deal aren’t publicly known, and WB Games says “J.K. Rowling is not directly involved in the creation of the game”, it is likely that, as the creator and owner of the Harry Potter IP, she will earn royalties from its sales.
