How to Identify Gear – Hogwarts Legacy

In this guide, we will introduce the process for Identifying Magical Equipment!

How to Identify Gear

If you spent the early parts of the game exploring outskirts of Hogwarts, you have undoubtedly found some Unidentified Gear! However, this gear can’t be used until you unlock the Room of Requirement. Once you unlock the room, you will also gain access to the Desk of Description (no blueprint or placing needed), which also serves as the Identification Station.

Once you have the Identification Station, all you have to do is approach it with some Unidentified items in the inventory and press the playstation square button/ button xbox x v2/ F button, depending on whether you play on Console or PC.
