The four iconic Harry Potter houses - Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw and Slytherin - are all included in Hogwarts Legacy. But with what differences?
Without a doubt, one of the most iconic aspects of the entire world of Harry Potter is represented by the four houses of Hogwarts: Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, and Slytherin. And of course, early on in his journey through Hogwarts Legacy, he'll find the Sorting Hat on his head quickly enough to decide which hat it belongs to.
If you're a long-time fan of Harry Potter, you'll already know which house you want to end up in, but if this is your first time in the wizarding world, you might not be so sure. In this guide, we'll explain not only how to choose your house, but also what the differences between them are in the Hogwarts Legacy experience.
How to choose the house in Hogwarts Legacy —
Once you have the Sorting Hat on your head, you will be asked a few questions that will help the hat figure out your personality. You've probably done this before, so it's pretty easy to choose answers based on your home preference. For Gryffindor, give assertive and adventurous answers; for Ravenclaw, to give intelligent and learned answers; for Hufflepuff, giving answers about friendship and the importance of meeting people; for Slytherin, he gives clever and mischievous answers.
After a couple of questions, the Sorting Hat will introduce you to the house it thinks you belong to. If you agree, you can accept it and the initiation ceremony is over. If you do not like the house that has been proposed to you, you will have another opportunity to select your favorite house; this choice will be final.
What are the differences between the houses? —
Story wise, the choice of Hogwarts house doesn't change much. You'll interact and befriend students from all houses throughout the story, and while some may make comments about your house, that doesn't stop you from having a connection with them.
This brings us to another thing that will be affected by your choice, which is clothing. There are many options when it comes to clothing at Hogwarts Legacy that will be different depending on which house you choose. You'll find different variations of clothing depending on which house you belong to, as well as the exclusive House Fanatic outfits you'll receive when you link your Harry Potter Fan Club account.
This means you can choose the house you want to proudly represent, without worrying too much about missing out on story-related content.
