Hogwarts Legacy All House Choices [Answered]

Deciding whom to spend time with in Hogwarts is one of the most important choices.

If you’re a Potterhead, then one of the first things that you’ll worry about when you’ll start Hogwarts Legacy is House Choices. Because the houses in Hogwarts play an important part in a student’s day-to-day life. That will define what you are and eventually you will get to interact with people of the same nature. If you are playing Hogwarts Legacy for the first time, it is important to know which house to select.

Key Takeaways
  • Choosing the right House in Hogwarts Legacy is quite important.
  • Each of the houses has its own unique qualities.
  • To join any house, you will be asked a few questions by the Sorting Hat.
  • Answering with ‘Bravery’ gets you into Gryffindor.
  • If you answer ‘Curiosity’, you’ll be added to the Ravenclaw.
  • ‘Loyalty’ as an answer will put you into Hufflepuff.
  • Lastly, if you reply with ‘Ambition’, you will go to Slytherin.
  • You can change your House while you’re interacting with the Sorting Hat.
  • Each house has different house colors and different Common Rooms among many other things.

Choosing The House

Now, the game has its own mechanics where the Sorting Hat chooses a house for you based on your answer to a few questions. Other than that, the developers have prepared a website where you can take a sort of personality test. There, you’ll have to give answers to a series of questions that will then determine which house is best suited for you. You can later link your account to the game and get that house into the game.

Alternatively, you can directly head into the game and get sorted there. Now, the famous Sorting Hat will determine what house you should go into. You won’t have to answer a bunch of questions. But you’ll only have to answer two questions. Sorting Hat will first ask:

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

To that question, you can give one of these two answers. Now, remember, the answer won’t affect what house you get sorted into. The answers to the question are:

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

Then, the Sorting Hat will ask you one question which will determine which house you should go into. If you have already selected a house on the website, you won’t get the next question. You’ll only get the first question and head to the final selection. The Hat will say:

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

Now, whatever answer you give to the sorting hat will determine what house you will get into. Although you can choose a different house later on, here are the answers to that question and what house you will get selected into.

  • Daring – That answer will get you into Gryffindor.
  • Curiosity – The Sorting Hat will suggest Ravenclaw.
  • Loyalty – Loyalty is the trait of Hufflepuff.
  • Ambition – It’s the answer to Slytherin.

Final Selection

After answering the Sorting Hat’s questions, it suggests a house based on your responses. If you’re dissatisfied with the selection, you can change it to your preferred house, but this choice is final for the current save game. You’ll remain in the selected house until you start a new game, so it’s crucial to choose wisely.

  • Selecting a particular house won’t drastically alter the game; the overall story and experience remain the same.
  • However, there are some minor changes in gameplay and interactions based on your chosen house.
  • You’ll engage with students from your selected house and explore its unique Common Room.
  • For those who prefer a new and unspoiled experience, diving into the game without pre-selecting a house is an option.

Differences Between Each House

Each of the houses is different from the other one. That is because, within each of them, you will have a unique collection of NPCs that you can interact with. Not only that but there are also other things that you will get to experience differently in each house. We’ll list them all below so you can get an idea of what to expect with each house.
