Once you unlock the Room of Requirement in Hogwarts Legacy, your wizarding world expands by a massive amount. Not only do you have a space for growing plants and mixing potions, but you can also use the Room to take care of animals and “harvest” them for materials. Said materials are used with the Loom in order to apply Traits, or buffs, to your gear. But can you stack those traits in Hogwarts Legacy?

Can you stack traits in Hogwarts Legacy?
The short answer is yes, you can stack Traits in Hogwarts Legacy. You are limited to one Trait per piece of gear, but with six wearable items, you can stack a Trait’s effects multiple times. You can apply a trait to a head piece, face piece, back piece, outfit, and gloves. Naturally, this means turning a spell into an absolute hurricane of destruction, or boosting your defense to absurd degrees. If you want to stack the power of your unforgiveable curses, you can certainly do just that.
Of course, stacking one or two spells might mean not benefitting from others. However, the game does allow you to ponder “builds” of sorts by using said Traits. There are no penalties to making a witch or wizard of your dreams, so find out what you want to do and go for it.
How much do Traits stack?
I’m not a math wizard, so I’m probably not the right person to ask about numbers in regards to Trait stacking. At least one person on Reddit has performed some calculations, however. According to the user, Trait stacking increases the power by a respectable amount. Their math probably isn’t perfect, but just looking at Laceration 3, you can see it grow to around 120% more damage.
