Hogwarts Legacy: Pottermore House Quiz Sorting Hat answers

How to be Gryffindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw, or Hufflepuff in Hogwarts Legacy X Pottermore House Quiz

Now that Hogwarts Legacy is available, players have the option to link their Harry Potter Fan Club and WB Games account to get exclusive rewards and in-game customizations. Players who choose to link their accounts actually have the option to import the wand, and the House they were previously sorted into. If you have not yet created an account but looking to do so, do know that the Pottermore House Quiz is not as easy as getting sorted in the game.

This guide will tell you which answers you need to choose to secure that Hogwarts House you are aiming for, whether it be Gryffindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw, or Hufflepuff. Each quiz consists of 8 questions taken from a pool of 28 possible questions. The first and last questions always have two options, while the questions in between give more options. The middle questions further give more weight to one of the four houses.

Due to nature of how percentages work, there is a very slight possibility that you might still end up in a house you were not expecting.
