Unlocking Your Deluxe Destiny: An Insider‘s Guide to Scoring Hogwarts Legacy‘s Premium Cosmetics

As an avid gamer and industry expert with over a decade of experience, I‘ve tackled my fair share of highly-anticipated releases. And in 2023, all eyes are on Hogwarts Legacy – the magical RPG that lets fans finally fulfill their dreams of life as a Hogwarts student.

If you were wise enough to pre-purchase the Deluxe Edition, exclusive cosmetics await you within the hallowed halls of the wizarding world. But how exactly do you access those VIP-only robes, mounts, and garbs? I‘m here to lift the veil.

A Hero‘s Welcome: What‘s in the Deluxe Edition?

The Deluxe Edition goes above and beyond Standard, packing in bonus gear that even Godric Gryffindor would envy:

  • Thestral Mount: Summon the skeletal winged-horse to sail across the moonlit skies.
  • Dark Arts Battle Arena: Perfect your sinister spells against vile villains in this arena.
  • Full Dark Arts Cosmetic Set: Drape yourself in ominous uniforms and artifacts.
  • Dark Arts Garrison Hat: The crowning creepy accessory.
  • 72 Hour Early Access: Enroll in Hogwarts before your fellow first-years.
  • Onyx Hippogriff Mount: Glide into launch week on this obsidian beast.

For franchise fans, the chance to step into the wizarding world ahead of crowds and don Dark Arts apparel makes the $79.99 Deluxe price well worth paying.

Claiming Your Cosmetic Chest

Actually scoring your Deluxe duds takes just a couple quick steps:

1. Pre-Purchase the Digital Deluxe Edition

Access to the bonuses is gated behind the one-time Deluxe purchase, which must be the digital version to allow pre-load.

2. Finish the Prologue

After the initial cinematic intro, a short prologue chapter unlocks character customization. Only then can you adorn your apprentice properly.

Once you‘ve crossed those two tasks off the list, the Merlin-worthy makeover may commence!

Deluxe Dressing: Equipping in Style

Adorning your wizard requires navigating the Gear interface:

1. Open Wardrobe
2. Equip One Item Per Slot
3. Highlight Gear & Press X (Xbox) or Square (PlayStation)
4. Select Deluxe Cosmetic
5. Repeat For All Slots!

Note: You must equip a standard piece initially before swapping its appearance to Deluxe variants. It‘s conjuring, not creating!

Pro-Tips for Fashion Excellence

Mastering magician couture takes practice. Follow these expert pointers to avoid common snags:

  • Xbox users press X over equipped items to alter look. PlayStation: punch Square instead!
  • The introductory prologue gates access to cosmetics and customization features.
  • Appearance options simply overlay equipped gear. Fill all slots first!
  • Embrace the darkness! The Dark Arts cosmetics unleash sinister style.

As a gaming guru and Slytherin supporter, I live for the chance to explore forgotten Hogwarts mysteries cloaked in sinister garb. Thanks to this guide, claiming your coveted pre-order cache should be smooth sailing!

Now hurry up and finish that prologue – an entire magical world awaits, rife with secrets to uncover, abilities to hone, and (naturally) fabulous fashion to discover. Your Hogwarts letter doesn‘t include a dress code, after all. So customize those robes and get casting!
