If you’re eagerly anticipating the release of Hogwarts Legacy, there are a few things you can do to prepare for the journey ahead. Players can pick their Hogwarts House and their very own wand before the game’s launch using the Wizarding World quiz.

Hogwarts Legacy will fully immerse players into the wizarding world they know and love. One of the most exciting aspects of joining Hogwarts as a student is getting sorted into one of the four Houses as well as picking out your wand.

While the sorting hat is usually in charge of placing students in one of Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Slytherin, and Ravenclaw, Hogwarts Legacy players have control over their own destiny. Prior to the game’s launch, you can decide for yourself which House to join and we’ll show you just how it’s done.

How to link Wizarding World quiz to Hogwarts Legacy for house & wand selection

Here’s a guide to picking your House and wand in Hogwarts Legacy prior to its February 10 release date:

  1. Log in to your Wizarding World account. If you don’t have one yet, create a new account.
  2. Complete the Wand Ceremony and Sorting Ceremony quizzes. Once complete, click the copy button to receive an 8-digit code.
  3. Head over to the WB Games website and log in to your existing account or make a new one.
  4. Once logged in, the website will prompt you to paste your 8-digit code. Doing so will link your Wizarding World account data to your Warner Bros. Game account, which will then appear in Hogwarts Legacy.

If you follow these steps, you’ll have your House and wand picked out before embarking on your Hogwarts Legacy journey on February 10. For more details on the linking process, you can check out the dedicated Hogwarts Legacy blog.

It’s important to note that you don’t have to select your Hogwarts House early, as players will still get the chance to do so in-game. The sorting hat will appear in Hogwarts Legacy, allowing you to decide the House you’ll belong to.

However, those who do decide to make the choice prior to release will receive a Beaked Skull Mask and a House Fan-atic School Robe as rewards for linking accounts.
