How to skip the Sorting Hat ceremony at Hogwarts Legacy

One of the most remembered scenes from the Harry Potter movies and novels is the one in which the protagonist is selected to enter Gryffindor in a ceremony inside the great hall of Hogwarts, but did you know that in Hogwarts Legacy you can get that scene to be short enough? Here’s exactly how.

The Sorting Hat has (not) spoken

Hogwarts Legacy

Hogwarts Legacy , the new title inspired by the Harry Potter universe, has finally arrived on consoles and computers and, without a doubt, it is causing a lot to talk about. Among the factors that players are highlighting the most, we find a very dynamic combat system and, because we can’t find another word, magical, a setting that immerses you fully in the literary universe and a story very up to the franchise.

In addition, the fact of reliving iconic scenes from the movies is also a very interesting addition. The different classes, the arrival at Hogwarts and, of course, the house-choosing ceremony, all of them scenes that you will have to go through no matter what. However, some players may prefer to jump right into the action sooner rather than later. This is why we bring you below a quick and easy way to make the Sorting Hat ceremony considerably shorter. So much so that it will not happen as such. Action Trick!

Before we start, we are going to talk about SPOILERS from the beginning of the game, so if you don’t want to find out about anything at all, don’t keep reading.

How to choose house out of the game

In order for the Sorting Hat ceremony to be shorter , you will need to have an account on the official Harry Potter website , as well as having completed the House and Wand tests . If you don’t have it, create it before starting the game. Once you have it active and done all of the above, you can start Hogwarts Legacy on your computer or console.

Once you make the technical adjustments typical of when you start a new game, the title will give you the option to link your Harry Potter account with Hogwarts Legacy , through a QR code that you will have to scan to start the process. Once you have completed this, you just have to enter a code that will appear on the screen. From there, that will take you to the WB Games website, where with a simple button press, the process will be completed by transferring all the relevant information from your Wizarding World profile back and forth.

Once linked, the game will save both your house and your wand that you have obtained in the web tests. Now, you’ll jump inside Hogwarts Legacy right into the campaign (after the whole portkey intro, the dragon incident, and the whole scene at Gringotts bank), landing at Hogwarts and kicking off a Houses where the hat ceremony , after asking you a small question about whether you want to start the course, will issue a sentence and will join you to the house that you obtained in the test on the website. The ceremony does not last even three minutes.

And you? What Hogwarts house are you from?
