Key Takeaways

  • Just like in books and movies, players can choose one of the four Hogwarts Houses: Gryffindor, Slytherin, Hufflepuff, and Ravenclaw.

  • The answer given during the quiz determines your Hogwarts House.
  • To become a Gryffindor, choose Daring. To become a Slytherin, choose Ambition. In order to be a Hufflepuff, choose Loyalty. And if you want to be a Ravenclaw, choose Curiosity.
  • If you are not satisfied with what the Sorting Hat suggests, you can always make a choice and change your House as the Sorting Hat considers the student’s choice too.
  • After the House Sorting ceremony, players can not change their House unless they restart the entire gameplay.
  • There is no major impact on the main storyline for choosing any specific House. The only notable differences are clothing, colors, Common Rooms, and quest companions.

How To Choose Your House

After escaping the near-death situation and embarking on a complicated journey with Professor Fig, players will reach the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry during the House Sorting ceremony. Moreover, here they will make their first big decision of the game, choosing their Hogwarts House. Your Hogwarts House will determine the Common Room you spend time in, the friends you make, your attire color, and a few minor changes overall. Make sure you choose your desired Hogwarts House during House Sorting in Hogwarts Legacy, as you won’t be able to reselect your House during the entirety of your playthrough.

You might already be aware of the four houses; however, if not, here are the four Hogwarts Houses players can choose from:

  • Gryffindor
  • Slytherin
  • Hufflepuff
  • Ravenclaw

Once Professor Weasley asks you to have a seat, your House Sorting process starts. Furthermore, the Sorting Hat will make a statement while on your head:

“You come here with preferences and preconceptions – certain expectations.”

Here you are given two options as an answer:

  • “I can’t wait to start classes.”
  • “I can’t wait to explore.”

Nevertheless, the option you choose here will not affect your House Sorting choices, so feel free to pick whichever one you find more interesting.

Next up, the Sorting Hat asks you the most crucial question in order to determine your House based on your personality. The question is:

“Hmm. I wonder. Hmm. I detect something in you. A certain sense of – hmm – what is it?”

Here come the four options for the answer, each associated with one of the four houses; therefore, the correct answer here is a must. These four options you can choose from are:

  • Daring
  • Curiosity
  • Loyalty
  • Ambition

If you want to become a Gryffindor, choose Daring. If you need to be a Ravenclaw, choose the option Curiosity. For Hufflepuff, choose the option Loyalty. And finally, if you see yourself as a Slytherin, choose the option Ambition.

If you have a Wizarding World account linked to your game for rewards, you don’t have to worry about your Wizarding World’s House. It will not get connected to your game; therefore, you still get the choice during the Sorting Hat ceremony.

How To Change Your House

Once the Sorting Hat suggests your House based on your reply, you get another chance to make the final decision. If you are a Potterhead, you must know the Sorting Hat takes your choice into consideration when sorting you into your House. Therefore, choose your desired House, and that is all; the Sorting Hat will announce it as your official House.

However, it is not possible to change your House after that, meaning you will represent the chosen House throughout the gameplay. The only way to change your House is by starting a New game.

Difference Between Each House

We do not blame you if you are confused on which House to pick and be a part of. All four Houses are unique and come with amazing traits. In addition, some of the most powerful witches and wizards come from each of the four houses. Following is the summed-up description of each House to help you pick your favorite one in Hogwarts Legacy.

House Impact On Main Story

There is no notable impact on the main storyline you face due to choosing a specific house. You don’t have to be a Gryffindor in order to unlock some secret quest or become a Slytherin to take a dark path. Other than different Common Rooms, different attire (robes, uniform, etc.), and different NPC students as your close companion, there are no significant changes to the Hogwarts Legacy storyline with different Houses picked.

The only “major” difference you experience is a close companion who you will perform some quests with. Following are your quest companions in accordance with your Hogwarts House in Hogwarts Legacy:

  • Gryffindor: Natsai Onai
  • Slytherin: Sebastian Sallow
  • Hufflepuff: Poppy Sweeting
  • Ravenclaw: Amit Thakkar

You will meet your quest companion pretty soon after your classes start and partake in some challenges alongside; however, it won’t affect any quest or the main gameplay. So, don’t sweat about skipping any particular quest, and choose whichever House you want during the House Sorting in Hogwarts Legacy.

Final Remarks

One of the first big decisions you face in Hogwarts Legacy is the House Sorting ceremony. Your House affects your uniform and robe’s color, your Common Room, and lastly, the companions you interact with on a daily basis. Despite having no significant impact on the gameplay, choosing your House is an entertaining activity, and many Potterheads take great interest in it.

Which Hogwarts House do you belong to? Well, hop on in the wizarding world of Hogwarts Legacy and make a choice! House Sorting in Hogwarts Legacy is an early part of the game, however; its decision sticks to the very end with your character, therefore; make a choice wisely.
