Which house you should choose in Hogwarts Legacy?

The Wizarding World offers unique experiences for players in each house they may choose in Hogwarts Legacy. There are key differences that will alter story progression and the items you will get.

But you shouldn't worry much yet, as players have the freedom to choose their house. There's still a lot of time to do research to decide where you'll belong to. Here are some of the path differences in choosing certain houses in Hogwarts Legacy.

One of the main features to be expected is having access to the Gryffindor common room, tucked away behind the iconic painting of the Fat Lady. As a companion, you'll have Natsai Onai who will help you on your valiant quests in-game.

Take note though that the path of Gryffindor may take you down the road of righteousness. You may have a more difficult time straying off to dark magic.

A fan-favourite house alongside Gryffindor, Slytherin has been given a lot of screentime in trailers and sneak peeks of the game. Slytherin companion Sebastian Swallow can give players the opportunity to learn the Cruciatus Curse, allowing players to take a darker route throughout the game. This is the best house to choose if you want to manifest your dark wizarding skills.

Moreover, the Slytherin common room certainly looks like its Harry Potter film series counterpart, making the trip to the sly house even more exciting.

We still haven't seen much on this house. Hogwarts Legacy has yet to reveal who the companion of Ravenclaw is, who their head of house is, and what kind of path the house of the knowledgeable and creative takes. However players were able to have a sneak peek on Ravenclaw's common room, which never had an appearance in the films, so this is one fans are bound to be excited about.

In terms of choosing Ravenclaw, perhaps the puzzles and quests would require you to be more creative and logical. This would mean paying more attention to classes too.

Last but not least is the house of loyalty, patience, and hard work, which is Hufflepuff. Another interesting house, choosing the path of Hufflepuff could allow you to be introduced to the world of Hogwarts' fantastical beasts and learn more about Herbology.

From the game's trailers, players are in for a treat for the Hufflepuff common room, which was never depicted in the films.
