The Sorting Hat takes your choice into consideration
“For those who are new to it, the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry has four houses: Gryffindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw, and Hufflepuff.
Gryffindors are known for their bravery and daring spirit, Slytherins are recognized for their cunningness and drive, Ravenclaws are known for their intelligence and quirky personalities, and Hufflepuffs are known for their trustworthiness and strong work ethic.
It’s important to remember that your house doesn’t completely define who you are as a person. For example, Hermione Granger is considered one of the smartest students at Hogwarts, but she is sorted into Gryffindor instead of Ravenclaw.
By understanding how Hogwarts Legacy’s sorting quiz works — or by using the account link feature before playing — you can end up in the house of your choosing.
HOW HOUSE SORTING WORKS IN HOGWARTS LEGACY
Soon after the start of the game, you’ll arrive at Hogwarts just in time for the Sorting Ceremony. There are two different ways you can be sorted into your house.
You can either take a very short in-game quiz, or you can link your Harry Potter Fan Club and WB Games accounts for a more personal house selection. Whichever method you decide to use, you can influence the Sorting Hat’s decision.
Once you complete the tutorial, you’ll make your way to the Sorting Ceremony where you’ll take a seat at the front of the Great Hall. Professor Weasley will then place the Sorting Hat on top of your head.
From here, you’ll be given two prompts where you must make a choice.
‘I CAN’T WAIT TO START CLASSES’ OR ‘I CAN’T WAIT TO EXPLORE’ QUIZ QUESTION DIFFERENCE
First, the Sorting Hat says, “You come here with preferences and preconceptions — certain expectations.”
- “I can’t wait to start classes.”
- “I can’t wait to explore.”
Your answer here will not affect your house selection at all, so feel free to choose either option.
HOW TO GET GRYFFINDOR, RAVENCLAW, HUFFLEPUFF, OR SLYTHERIN IN HOGWARTS LEGACY
Next, the Sorting Hat says, “Hmm. I wonder. Hmm. I detect something in you. A certain sense of — hmm — what is it?”
This question is the only question that will affect which house you’re sorted into. Fans of the series might already know which option will lead to which house, but we’ve placed the resulting house in parentheses just in case:
- Daring. (Gryffindor)
- Curiosity. (Ravenclaw)
- Loyalty. (Hufflepuff)
- Ambition. (Slytherin)
If you’re not happy with the house you’ve been sorted into, you can choose whichever house you’d like to join.
Note that if you have linked your accounts, you won’t get this choice, since you will have done the quiz already. Instead, you’ll only be given the “start classes”/”explore” question, which has no bearing on the house sorting outcome.
