Best Mods for Hogwarts Legacy

An arachnophobia mode is one of the most requested features in Hogwarts Legacy due to the Acromantula. The base game does not have this feature, but Hogwarts fan norskpl has made it themselves. This mod replaces the Acromantula with harmless-looking cubes, thus removing their spidery nature.

We all knew this was coming. No PC game is complete until it has a mod adds Thomas the Tank Engine, and creator Zurrye has modded this legendary figure into Hogwarts Legacy. This mod replaces your Broom with Thomas and will certainly make your flight time interesting.

Paler and Darker Skins for Player Character

Hogwarts Legacy offers a robust character creator, but some fans want more options. This skin tone mod adds more skin palettes, which allows you to create your ideal witch or wizard student.

Hogwarts Legacy Realism Overhaul Shaders

Hogwarts Legacy is already a beautiful game, but scottyus1 has created a shader to improve the in-game textures with a more crisp and realistic look. If you want to upgrade your game's look, check out this mod and see Hogwarts come to life in new ways.

Performance Friendly Shader

For those on lower-end PCs who still want an enhanced look, Deehn has created a cinematic and realistic shader that is merciful to performance. This mod still improves the game and makes its stunning graphics look even more magical.

One Billion Coins

Fan kosagar has created a mod to give players an early save file with a billion coins. This will certainly make your life easier as you will no longer have to worry about money. Ever.

Arithmancy Door Numbers

Hogwarts Legacy is full of puzzles, but few are as confusing as the first time you encounter an Arithmancy Door. This puzzle involves the most dreaded form of magic—math. Fortunately, MissingMinus has created a mod to add numbers to the door, making it easier than ever to solve the equation.

NPC Schedule Enhanced (Better AI)

If you're looking for a more realistic experience, Khione95 has modded a better schedule for the NPCs. For example, students will attend classes while the Professors walk around the castle at night. If you're going for a late-night stroll, don't get caught!

Facial Hair

Sure, you are playing a student in Hogwarts Legacy, but some kids hit puberty early and start growing facial hair in school. Sirgalahad172 feels the same way and has created a facial hair mod that lets your character have a glorious mustache or thick beard.

Skip Alohomora

The Alohomora mini-game has been the bane of all fans' existence. It's a spell that should automatically unlock anything, so why do we have to play the same mini-game over and over again? Luckily for us, icouldifiwantedto modded a skip that automatically unlocks all locks at your Level.

Shrek Broom

The green ogre invades all media sources at some point, as norskPL has modded Shrek into Hogwarts Legacy—not as a character, but as a ridable broom. The Shrek Broom turns your witch or wizard's broom into an ogre and lets you fly through the sky.

Hogwarts students usually won't get to ride dragons at any point in their lives (unless you are the Golden Trio). However, Zurrye decided to grace us with another fun mod to ride dragons in Hogwarts Legacy.

Hogwarts Legacy VR

While not complete, Flat2VR's VR mod for Hogwarts Legacy is one of the most ambitious and coolest mods. This will allow players to explore Hogwarts like never before. It is a work in progress, but it certainly looks promising.

Hogwarts Legacy Co-op

Another work in progress is The Together Team's co-op mod for Hogwarts Legacy. While not complete, running around Hogwarts with a friend is an idea to keep on your radar. The Together Team uploaded a brief video showing two students walking through Hogwarts Legacy together.

How to download mods for Hogwarts Legacy

Most PC mods for Hogwarts Legacy can be found on Nexus Mods. This is the typical mod hosting site and is considered safe to use, but use mods at your own risk. You can potentially download viruses or crash your game by using mods. So, be careful when choosing which ones you will use.

How to install the mods

Once you have downloaded your desired mods for Hogwarts Legacy, you will need to look at each mod's directory. It will instruct you where to place the mod files in your Hogwarts Legacy folder. We recommend making a backup of any files that you are replacing with modded files. Most mods will give you detailed instructions on where to place files and how to install them.
