Just like in the books and the movies, in Hogwarts Legacy, it’s the Sorting Hat who sorts you into the four Houses: Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Slytherin, and Ravenclaw during the Sorting Ceremony. But to get into the House you want, you’d have to select the right answers.

Here’s how you can get sorted into your favorite House in Hogwarts Legacy and also how you can choose your favorite House and wand before you start the game.

How to choose your House in Hogwarts Legacy

To get sorted into the House you want in Hogwarts Legacy, you need to answer a couple of questions when you talk to the Sorting Hat.

Here’s a walkthrough of the ceremony that gets you into the House of your choice.

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

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

The first question doesn’t affect what House you choose so you can go with any of the options. But the next question is important and many Harry Potter fans will recognize it right away.

  • Curiosity
  • Loyalty
  • Ambition

The option you choose here matters as the Hat will then take you to the screen that shows your House. But you can still choose to accept or deny if you selected the wrong option.

Hogwarts Legacy house differences

Every House in Hogwarts Legacy has a house-exclusive quest and it impacts who you talk to when you visit the house-specific common room. The quest takes place as the 14th main quest and regardless of the House you choose, it leads to the same outcome.

  • Gryffindor House: If you select Gryffindor as your House, you’ll get the Hunt for the Missing Pages house-exclusive quest. A unique aspect of this quest is finding Jackdaw’s head in the pumpkin patch before you can talk to him.
  • Ravenclaw House: Ollivander’s Heirloom is the Ravenclaw-specific quest in which you assist the wand expert in finding a family heirloom stolen by Jackdaw. The mission concludes with you obtaining the crucial pages needed for the next main story quest.
  • Hufflepuff House: As mentioned before, if you choose Hufflepuff, you get to go to Azkaban to solve an old murder mystery. This is the only chance in the game to visit the wizard prison.
  • Slytherin House: If you choose Slytherin, you get the Scrope’s Last Hope quest which mainly adds more quest time in the Forbidden Forest and seamlessly transitions into the main storyline.
