How to get Gryffindor in Hogwarts Legacy

Hogwarts Legacy brings you the ultimate Hogwarts student experience. You will be able to create a unique character and go to the best Witchcraft and Wizardry school. Of course, you will have to go through the Sorting Ceremony first.


All students are sorted between houses by the Sorting Hat in the original book series. This hat was created by the four Hogwarts founders and can accurately predict which house you are most suited to. However, in Hogwarts Legacy, students have a bit more freedom of choice.

If you feel that the traits of Gryffindor suit you, then you can choose and become a member of this house manually. Thankfully, Avalanche Software has made choosing a home very easy.

Hogwarts is home to many different students. Each of them belongs to one of the four houses:

  • Gryffindor - This house was founded by Godric Gryffindor, and its mascot is a lion. Gryffindor students often have traits such as chivalry and bravery.
  • Slytherin - This house was founded by Salazar Slytherin, and its mascot is a Snake. Slytherin students often have traits such as ambitions and cunning.
  • Ravenclaw - This house was founded by Rowena Ravenclaw, and its mascot is an eagle. Ravenclaw students often have traits such as academia and wit.
  • Hufflepuff - This house was founded by Helga Hufflepuff, and its mascot is a badger. Hufflepuff students often have traits such as hard work and loyalty.

All of these houses have unique dormitories and uniforms. Moreover, the developers have revealed that players will be able to take companions from their houses. Therefore, your choice in the Sorting Ceremony is very important.

Why should you choose Gryffindor in Hogwarts Legacy?

As a student of Gryffindor, you will have access to several exclusive opportunities. First, Gryffindor's dormitory is not in a cold dungeon, but in one of the towers of Hogwarts. To get there, you need to say the correct password in front of the Fat Lady's portrait. But be careful as the password changes every week.


Also, by choosing Gryffindor, you can follow the path of Harry and his friends. Although it would be more correct to say that you took this path before them, but whatever. Oh yes, and the uniform.

Each of the houses in Hogwarts has a unique uniform. While we like Slytherin's darker style more, Gryffindor also has a very loveable style. Gryffindor students wear uniforms with gold, red, and grey colours. We hope we will be able to change the clothes or at least the accessories of our characters.

That's all you need to know about how to get Gryffindor in Hogwarts Legacy. Just make the right choice, and you can become a member of the desired house. While you are still here, make sure to check our list of all Hogwarts Legacy mounts confirmed so far.
