Hogwarts Legacy Sorting Hat Quiz: How To Get Your House

No one wants to play through the full Hogwarts Legacy game not in the house that they see themselves in. Well, perhaps on a replay it will be fun to explore the other common rooms and talk to other students, during the first playthrough fans will want to play as their own house — Slytherin, Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, or Ravenclaw.

When you meet the Hogwarts Legacy sorting hat during the sorting ceremony, which comes fairly early in the game (within the first hour depending on how much you choose to look around and how long you take to fight the Guardians), you must answer a short in-game quiz so that it knows where to place you. Or you can link your Harry Potter Fan Club and WB Games accounts for a more personal house selection. 

Once you arrive to the Sorting Ceremony after the tutorial, you’ll sit at the front of the Great Hall, and Professor Weasley will place the Sorting Hat atop your head. Yes, fans will be feeling some kind of away about this, as it is one of the most special moments of a student’s time at Hogwarts.

From here, you’ll be given two prompts where you must make a choice.

You come here with preferences and preconceptions — certain expectations.

The Hogwarts Legacy Sorting Hat says, “You come here with preferences and preconceptions — certain expectations.” and you can answer with either:

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

Your answer here will not affect your house selection.

Hmm. I wonder. Hmm. I detect something in you. A certain sense of — hmm — what is it?

Next, the Hogwarts Legacy 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. Harry Potter diehards will know exactly which choice will lead to which house, but here are the house selections that the Hogwarts Legacy Sorting Hat quiz will place you in:

  • Daring will give you Gryffindor.
  • Curiosity will give you Ravenclaw.
  • Loyalty will give you Hufflepuff.
  • Ambition will give you Slytherin.

The good thing is it really doesn’t matter what you select during this quiz, because you can reject the house that the Hogwarts Legacy sorting hat puts you in and select the one you want anyways. So don’t loose too much sleep over which answer you choose.

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.
