What changes between the Hogwarts Legacy houses: here are all the differences

Cosa cambia tra le case di Hogwarts Legacy: ecco tutte le differenze thumbnail

You have chosen Gryffindor to walk the path of righteousness and you’re wondering what would have changed if the Sorting Hat had assigned you to Slytherin? Well know that in Hogwarts Legacy the four houses affect the game, with differences both from an aesthetic and gameplay point of view. It is no coincidence, in fact, that the game has four different save slots, enticing you to create four different characters.

Recall, for those new to the world of Hogwarts Legacy, that the game is set in the Harry Potter fictional universe, but about a century before the events narrated in the novels of J.K. Rowling. Specifically, the video game puts you in the shoes of a new fifth year Hogwarts student. So, even if you lag behind your mates, you too will have to participate in the sorting ceremony. Obviously, as well as in the works of J.K. Rowlingit will be there Sorting Hat to assign you to one of the four houses (Gryffindor, Slytherin, Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw).

The Sorting will take place at the beginning of the game, after the first part of the tutorial. After a series of questions the Sorting Hat will assign you to a house. Don’t worry though, just like Harry in The Philosopher’s Stone you can interact with him and make him change his mind even after he has made his choice. But be careful: once you have confirmed your home, you will no longer be able to change it!

The first substantial difference between the houses will obviously be of an aesthetic nature. The clothes and the aspects you unlock will reflect the colors of your home. Specifically, the main colors are: gold and scarlet for Gryffindor; silver and green for Slytherin; yellow and black for Hufflepuff and bronze and blue for Ravenclaw.

The common room

At the end of the Sorting you will be led into the Common room of your home. And here is the second major difference, given that each house has its own dormitory and unique setting. Not only that: if you belong to a different house and you try to access a Common Room that doesn’t belong to you, you could run into nice easter eggs and animations. In particular:

  • Gryffindor: The Gryffindor common room is the famous Gryffindor Tower that we have seen in the movies. To access it you will have to interact with the portrait of the Fat Lady. If you belong to another house the Fat Lady will tease you, telling you that all your attempts to log in will be useless.
  • Slytherin: the Slytherin common room is located in the basement and is surrounded by the Black Lake. In the films we see it when in The Chamber of Secrets Harry and Ron access it in the guise of Crabbe and Goyle. In the game, the common room is hidden by a secret passage that will only be revealed to the Slytherins. Here too, however, there is an easter egg: inside there is a huge glass window showing the bottom of the Black Lake. If you cast three basic spells on the glass, a tentacle of the famous monster that lives there will appear.

The secret entrance to the Slytherin Common Room

  • Tassorosso: The Hufflepuff common room is located in the basement and you need to interact with wooden barrels to access it. If you try to interact with them without being a Hufflepuff, the barrels will spray liquid at you. The interiors are reddish and in keeping with the hardworking Hufflepuff spirit. Also inside the Common Room is a portrait of Eldritch Diggory, ancestor of Cedric Diggory from the books and films.
  • Corvonero: the access to the Ravenclaw common room is the most anonymous and is located at the top of a long staircase. However, those who play as Ravenclaw will be able to unlock a unique access to the terrace of the tower, inaccessible to all other students. From the terrace it is possible to use the flying broom.

Each house has its own unique mission

In addition to these purely aesthetic aspects, the choice of the house also impacts the gameplay. Each house has its own unique mission in Hogwarts Legacy. This is the quest related to the missing pages of the book that you will have found in the Forbidden Section of the Library. You will unlock it in the first hours of the game and, depending on your house, you will have to leave for a specific mission.

Come Gryffindor you will go together with Nearly Headless Nick to the Hunt for the Headless. In the guise of Slytherin instead you will have to complete an assignment for Scroope (Headmaster Black’s elf), entering the tomb of Apollonia Black. If you are Tassorosso you will be able to obtain the missing information in a mission that will even take you to visit In Azka. Finally, as a Ravenclaw, the missing information will be found in the Owlery, where you will have to solve puzzles.

Hogwarts Legacy Voldemort Tom RiddleWithout too many surprises with this character we were assigned to Slytherin. After all, who more Slytherin than Tom Riddle?

Your choice of house will also affect the order in which you get to know other Hogwarts students. As a Gryffindor, for example, you will immediately know Garreth Weasley, while as a Slytherin you will immediately make friends with Sebastian and Infaustus. However this aspect will not affect the rest of the story.
