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.
Now if you’ve watched any of the Harry Potter movies or its games, you must know that the houses at Hogwarts aren’t your usual at any educational institution. At a typical institution, you only take part in extracurricular activities for your House. But at Hogwarts, you get to live with them and perform your day-to-day activities with them.
Due to that, Choosing the right House in Hogwarts Legacy is important for the players. You’ll have to choose one among four houses. These houses are Gryffindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw, and Hufflepuff. Each of these houses has its own house colors, its own common and living rooms, and unique NPCs that you get to interact with.
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 on 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 had 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.
Once you have answered the question, the Sorting Hat will then suggest the house relating to your answer. If you don’t like the final house selection, you can then change the house to your preferred house. But remember, it will be your final answer. Once you have selected the said house, you will have to stay in that house until you start a new save game. That is why you must know what you’re getting into before you finalize your house.
Whatever house you select won’t change the game as you will have the same experience with the game. Yes, there are a few changes in how the game will be, but overall, its story and experience will remain the same. You’ll get to interact with different students of the house you are selected in and get to experience their unique Common Rooms.
Now, if you’re the type of player that likes to go in blind and get that new experience of the game. It is best that you start the game right away and then explore it. But, if you like to get the best experience, or have certain gameplay in mind, say you want to play as a Slytherin, you can choose that specific house. Again, remember, your house won’t affect the game experience at all.
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.
