Hogwarts Legacy: how to open eye chests

There are many strange sights and sounds to behold all across Hogwarts as you explore the castle and its surroundings in 8Hogwarts Legacy*.

Chief among these would be the eye chests, which appear as normal treasure chests, only with a big central eye that observes you. Once it notices you getting too close, it'll become aggressive and prevent you from looting whatever goodies it's hiding. Here's a simple way to trick these nasty chests and get their prize.

How to unlock eye chests

In order to loot an eye chest, you will need a way to reach them without their all-seeing eye spotting you. This will require more than simply sneaking around, however.

Step 1: Progress through the main story missions until you learn the disillusionment spell in "Secrets of the Restricted Section."

Step 2: Find an eye chest and cast the disillusionment spell on yourself while out of its field of view.

Step 3: While invisible, approach the chest and press the prompt to search it.

Eye chests can be found all over Hogwarts, and each one will reward you with a hefty sum of 500 gold galleons, so it is well worth your time to loot each one you see -- before it sees you.

How to set a course in Starfield
Cockpit in spaceship from Starfield.

Rather than build one massive world like in an Elder Scrolls title, Bethesda opted to create hundreds of planets to travel between in the aptly named Starfield. While not every planet is necessary to visit, you will be jumping between them extremely frequently to complete missions, do sidequests, build outposts, and generally explore. When you are first shoved into the pilot's seat, it can feel overwhelming coming to grips with how the system works. If you just want to get from point A to B, setting a course is the easiest way to dos o. Here's how to get where you need to be without searching the massive star map in Starfield.

How to get Structural Materials in Starfield
Starfield planet.

Starfield has a massive expanded the amount of things you can build and craft. From entire Outposts to weapon mods and research projects, everything you want to craft will require specific materials to create. These materials will be found all over the various planets, either as lootable objects, ores you need to mine, or even as items you can purchase from various vendors, but some will always be harder to find than others. Structural Materials, while not the rarest resource, are used in nearly every aspect of Outpost building and upgrades. If you're running low on this crucial building block, here's how to get more Structural Materials in Starfield.
Ways to get Structural Materials

Like any resource in Starfield, there's more than one way to get your hands on Structural Materials. The easiest, but most expensive, will be to simply buy them from one of the many shops around the galaxy. Vendors' stock is slightly variable from day to day, but you can typically rely on any of your more "general" stores to carry this common material, such as the Jemison Mercantile in New Atlantis or Shepard's General Store on Akila. Each vendor will only hold a specific amount, so if you need a lot, you will need to do a little legwork. After buying out everything a vendor has, if you wait for 24 hours at a chair or bed, you can go back and their stock will be replenished.

How to unlock the Pilgrim’s room in Starfield
Cockpit in spaceship from Starfield.

For the most part, the main questline in Starfield won't challenge you too much in terms of puzzle-solving. Missions tend to boil down to getting an objective, fast traveling to a location, and following your marker until you collect an Artifact. Since you can only unlock all the powers by going through the main quests, you will at least want to complete most of them before going off and doing all the faction missions, outpost building, or general space exploration. There's one mission, though, that can be a roadblock if you're not extra observant and invested in reading all the lore. If you don't know the answers to opening the Pilgrim's Computer in Starfield, here is all the information you need.
Pilgrim Computer's answers

After you arrive at Pilgrim's Rest and explore, you will be led to the small base that's full of notes, among dozens of other items. Your objective is behind a locked door that asks you a few questions that you're supposed to learn the answers to by hunting down and reading all the notes. This isn't a door you can lockpick no matter how high your skill level is, so selecting the right answers is the only way forward. Here are all the questions you will be asked, and the correct responses:
