How to Open Eye Chests (Disillusionment Chests) – Hogwarts Legacy

Hogwarts Legacy is full of strange and magical objects, and that includes its chests. Many chests open easily, but some — the ones with the huge eyeballs on them — are on the lookout for would-be looters, and won’t open without a special trick. In this guide, we’ll show you how to get the tricky eye chests open, list their rewards, and explain how to unlock the required spell.

The chests are on the look out for people trying to open them — you can tell the chest can see you when it’s eye is open (1) . Getting too close while the eye is open will cause the chest to seal itself, indicated by the eye being half-closed (2).

To prevent this, cast the Disillusionment charm, and the eye will close. Once it’s closed, you can simply walk up to the chest and press playstation square button/button xbox x v2to loot it — there’s no need to try to sneak up behind it, or approach from the side.

Of course, you can’t do any of that if you haven’t learned how to cast Disillusionment. This spell is unlocked as part of the main quest, so you’ll have to complete all of the following quests in order to access it:

You won’t actually have to complete Secrets of the Restricted Section in its entirety, however. Once you meet up with Sebastian Sallow in the Main Hall at night, he’ll teach you Disillusionment, in order for you two to more easily sneak into the library.

Once you’ve acquired the spell, you can equip it by pressing button xbox dpad rightto open your Spells menu. Then, put your cursor over Disillusionment, hold playstation r2 button, and then press whatever face button you want to assign the spell to. You can then cast the spell by holding playstation r2 button and pressing the button it’s assigned to.

All the Disillusionment Chests give the exact same reward: 500 Galleons. Not bad for a single spell cast!
