How to get into the Gryffindor house in Hogwarts Legacy

If you have connected your Harry Potter Fan Club account to your WB Games profile, you will first be suggested the house that you received in your Pottermore Sorting Quiz. Though, you can also use the Sorting Hat to pick a different house from your Pottermore Quiz. It’s important to note that during the Sorting Hat ceremony, the Sorting Hat will ask your character two crucial questions. The first question is an open question that doesn’t appear to take into account too much for your character, but the second one is far more crucial. This question determines the qualities of your character, reflecting how the Sorting Hat views them.

If you’re looking to make sure that, at this point, the Sorting Hat puts you into Gryffindor, make sure to pick the “Daring” option. This is the first option in the list of choices. Curiosity will have the Sorting Hat automatically placing you in Ravenclaw. Ambition will place you into Slytherin. If you go with Loyalty, the Sorting Hat suggests that your character join the Hufflepuff house.

Regardless of the Sorting Hat’s first decision, feel free to automatically select your preferred house. For example, if you choose “Ambition”, and the Sorting Hat places you in Slytherin before you can confirm this decision, you can choose one of the other houses and have the Sorting Hat choose Gryffindor. Making a different decision from what the Sorting Hat makes for you during this ceremony is not a bad thing, and does not play into the Hogwarts Legacy gameplay.
