Getting into Slytherin in Hogwarts Legacy requires players to choose specific choices to certain questions. The iconic house is associated with pride, cunning, and ambition. Named after Salazar Slytherin, it is considered by many as a breeding ground for Dark Wizards. However, this game offers an entirely new perspective on life in Hogwarts as its member.

Every house in the Hogwarts castle has its own symbol in the form of an animal, which, in Slytherin’s case, is a serpent. This house’s colors are green and silver, which can be seen on their seal, robes, common room, and banners. However, many fans wonder how they can join Slytherin in Hogwarts Legacy.

The in-game Sorting Hat ceremony will have Professor Weasley place the magical hat atop your head in the Great Hall. You will then have to answer two prompts.

First prompt

Sorting Hat: "You come here with preferences and preconceptions — certain expectations."

The answers available to you are:

  • “I can’t wait to start classes.”
  • “I can’t wait to explore.”

These choices don't impact the final selection, so you can go with whichever you feel resonates with you more.

Second prompt

Sorting Hat - "Hmm. I wonder. Hmm. I detect something in you. A certain sense of — hmm — what is it?"

The options are:

  • Daring. (Gryffindor)
  • Curiosity. (Ravenclaw)
  • Loyalty. (Hufflepuff)
  • Ambition. (Slytherin)

This is the all-important prompt, and you will have to make the decision carefully. Choosing Ambition will slot you into Slytherin in Hogwarts Legacy.
