How to claim all Hogwarts Legacy Twitch drops

Hogwarts Legacy drops may be experiencing technical difficulties

With Hogwarts Legacy now available to the general public, players are eager to check out what this newest virtual installment in the Wizarding World franchise has to offer. However, not all is well on the digital front. With the game now available to stream for anyone interested in doing so, and there are certain advantages to those considering watching such streams. As is the case with most titles from mainstream AAA publishers these days, Hogwarts Legacy is offering Twitch drops as part of its opening launch promotional campaign. So if you’ve got your eye on some downright enchanting loot, notably including the Merlin’s Cloak cosmetic DLC, you probably want to know how you can go about obtaining it.
