Unfortunately, the only way to get the Kelpie Robe in Hogwarts Legacy is to purchase the Collector’s Edition of the game. As of writing, the Hogwarts Legacy Collector’s Edition is no longer in stock.
Those hoping to obtain the Kelpie Robe for their collection need to find someone selling an unredeemed code.
The easiest way to purchase one is through eBay. Although the Hogwarts Legacy Collector’s Edition is going upwards to $400, a code for the Kelpie Robe is almost $100.
It’s a steep price to pay for an in-game cosmetic that doesn’t add anything to the gameplay or story.
Thankfully, there are other exclusive in-game cosmetics that players can earn without having to shell out double what they paid for the game.
During February, Twitch users who tune into Hogwarts Legacy streams will have a chance to obtain exclusive in-game items.
Different items are also available for those purchasing the Digital Deluxe Edition.
The Kelpie Robe is a dynamic item that features a moving image as part of its design. You can see it in action below.
Will the Kelpie Robe Be Available as Stand-Alone DLC?
Avalanche Software has not stated that the Kelpie Robe is coming as a stand-alone DLC in the future, but it is highly unlikely.
The Hogwarts Legacy Collector’s Edition retailed for $300. Its contents are meant to be exclusive and unattainable through other means.
If they were to offer the Kelpie Robe as a stand-alone DLC, then it’s likely those who did purchase the Collector’s Edition may feel slightly betrayed.
We’ll likely see entirely new robes and other in-game items offered as DLC somewhere down the line.
What Is the Significance of the Kelpie Robe?
There is no real significance to the Kelpie Robe in Hogwarts Legacy. It is simply a cosmetic item that has a dynamic design.
In Hogwarts lore, Kelpies are shape-shifting life forms that are dangerous around the water. Their hair is a suitable material in wand cores. The Loch Ness Monster is also just a large kelpie that resides in Loch Ness, Scotland.
