How to choose your Hogwarts house
Once you arrive at Hogwarts, you’ll be taken to the Sorting Ceremony in the Great Hall.
Firstly, you’ll be asked about your preferences and preconceptions.
- You’ll be asked to answer between “I can’t wait to start classes,” or “I can’t wait to get out and explore.”
It does not matter which answer you give here, as it’s the second lot of answers that determine which Hogwarts house the sorting hat quiz will assign you to.
After giving your first answer, you’ll be asked what the Sorting Hat senses in you. You’ll be given four options, each of which corresponds to a house. If you want to be sorted into Gryffindor, pick “Daring,” for Slytherin, it’s “Ambition,” for Hufflepuff it’s “Loyalty,” and for Ravenclaw, it’s “Curiosity.”
And that’s it. The Sorting Hat quiz is much better than that on Pottermore, with only two questions, only one of which matter. If you don’t like which house you are given, you can change it.
Can you change your Hogwarts house?
No. Currently, there is no way to change your Hogwarts house after you have selected it.
However, if you’re looking to play through the game and experience all that Hogwarts Legacy has to offer, you’re in luck. The game offers multiple save files, so you’re able to create a witch or wizard from each house, and then experience the game. You’ll also need to do this if you’re looking to earn the game’s Platinum trophy.
Does your house matter?
The main thing that changes depending on your house is the location of your common room. Students from other houses can’t enter the common room of another house.
While the quests you have access to in the game remain the same regardless of your house, there is one quest, the location of which will change depending on which house you are in.
This quest, which occurs around 90 minutes into the game’s running time involves the death of Richard Jackdaw. While Gryffindor will interact with The Headless Hunt and Slytherin will explore the bowels of the school, Hufflepuff will get to visit Azkaban, the only house that will be able to do so in the game.
However, the reward for said quest remains the same regardless, and you’ll still get access to the side quest that is earned towards the end of the mission.
