Is it better to buy seeds or combat plants at Dogweed and Deathcap?
If you’re fairly new to Hogwarts Legacy, you might be wondering if you should purchase seedlings or the actual plants themselves. Here are our suggestions:
- Generally speaking, buying combat plants tends to be more expensive in the long run, as each item only has a one-time use. The benefit is that you can throw a deadly flora as soon as you have at least one item. As such, it’s always a good idea to have a few of these handy when you head to dangerous areas.
Planting seedlings might be more expensive early on, but they’ll provide better yields in the end. You only need to buy a type of seedling once, and you’ll be able to grow that plant for the rest of the campaign. However, you still need to acquire certain fixtures for the Room of Requirement, such as potting tables with small, medium, or large pots, as well as additional Moonstone. Time also plays a major factor here, as it can take anywhere from five to 15 minutes for a plant to be fully grown.
