To unlock Merlin’s Cloak in Hogwarts Legacy, players need to tune into the eligible streams on official Avalanche Software Twitch Channel.

Viewers on Twitch will need to stay for at least 20 minutes to redeem the in-game cosmetic.

So far, we have no information as to when Merlin’s Cloak will be available again. As soon as further streams get announced, we’ll update this article.

Chandler Wood, Hogwarts Legacy Community Manager, confirmed that more opportunities to obtain the rare cosmetic item would be coming in the weeks following launch.

So far, only one more stream has offered fans a chance to earn the rare cosmetic.

Past Merlin Cloak streams have taken place at

  1. February 7 at 8 AM PT/4 PM GMT
  2. February 10 at 8 AM PT/4 PM GMT
  3. February 24th at 2 PM PST / 5 PM EST

Merlin’s Cloak is only a limited-time reward and exclusive to this Twitch Drops event. It is unlikely that this cosmetic will ever appear as a reward in Hogwarts Legacy itself.

This Twitch Drop is even more exclusive since it is tied to specific Avalanche Software streams. The initial streams were broadcasts to commemorate the launch of Hogwarts Legacy’s early access.

How to Claim Merlin’s Cloak From Twitch Drops & Rewards

To claim Merlin’s Cloak from Twitch Drops, you’ll need to access the Twitch Drops Inventory page once you’ve watched the live stream for a full twenty minutes and claim your cloak.

Once you’ve done this, you’ll need to head to the official Hogwarts Legacy Twitch Drop page and claim your reward there. You’ll need to claim the reward on both sites before it appears in-game.

  • You should see the Merlin’s Cloak reward here.
  • Once you have viewed twenty minutes of the stream and are ready to claim, choose “Claim Now.” This is still only the first step. You’ll need to do one more thing before they appear in-game for you.
