Chest Items Are Dependent On The Level

You can get lots of items from the treasure chests, but the insides are all random. When the Main Character's level is high, then there is a better chance of getting higher status items, so you will receive stronger items in the later part of the games. There is no problem in opening the chests, but you do not have to look around vigorously in the beginning of the game.

It Is Not Recommended To Purchase In The Beginning

There is a tendency of trying to purchase stronger items at shops, but as the same as the treasure chests, the higher the level of the Main Character, the items lineup changes in the shop. You do not have much money in the beginning of the game, so it is not recommended to purchase in the beginning.

Be Careful Not To Use Too Much Money

Money is needed to purchase items to complete Main Quests and purchase Brooms. Until you are ready to farm money, it is not recommended to use too much money in the beginning.

How To Quickly Progress?

Revelio Is The Most Useful Searching Spell

Revelio is a spell that you can use from the beginning, and it will reveal hidden puzzels, or treasure chests behind walls. It will help find puzzles and treasure chests that you had missed, so this is a very important spell to learn.

Listen To The Sound To Check Anything You Might Have Missed

If an object related to Challenge is located within the Revelio range, the sound of bell will be played when used. The closer to the object, the louder the sound effect, so you can Revelio to look for missing objects.

Leveling Up With Collecting Field Guides

You can gain 80 XP for each Field Guide you collect. You can find Field Guides in various areas as a form of flying books and papers. This can be obtained by solving a puzzle. In the beginning of the game, this method is a great way to gain experience points.

You may search for them to level up, and you may also gather them when you find them. If you just do Main Quests then you will have trouble leveling up so try to collect them when you can.
