Hogwarts Legacy

Hogwarts Legacy Witch Or Wizard: Are There Any Differences?

Jacob Woodward

Hogwarts Legacy throws you in the deep end, making you choose a variety of different things as soon as you press start on the game. You get to create your very own student, mold their face into either something similar to your own, and get the right voice for your in-game persona.

One other question you’re asked when beginning your adventure in the wizarding world is whether you want to be a witch or wizard in Hogwarts Legacy. While this choice may seem simple on the face of it, many don’t want to make the wrong one, thus seeking answers.

This guide will discuss the witch or wizard option and any differences between the two.

Hogwarts Legacy Witch Or Wizard: Which Should You Choose?

Hogwarts Legacy witch or wizard option

As previously mentioned, you’re presented with a bunch of character creation options once you start your fresh save. While a lot of these are to do with the actual appearance, the witch or wizard option seems like it would have the biggest effects in-game.

However, while it may seem this way at first glance, it simply doesn’t matter if you choose either option. It doesn’t change any story progression, your interactions, or even any dialogue options.

Naturally, you’d usually associate a wizard with a male, and a witch with a female but you’re usually addressed in the game as simply ‘student’ or similar, completely avoiding any genders in the process. Additionally, if you’re worried about any character creation restrictions when picking a witch or wizard, don’t be, as no matter which you select, all options are available.

The one and only difference between whether you pick the witch or wizard option is the dormitory you are placed in. While some may think that this could impact your House’s Common Room, this isn’t really the case, it’s simply just your sleeping quarters that are ‘gender-specific’.

All in all, it’s simply down to your personal preference whether you want to be a witch or wizard. Now go out and explore the magical lands surrounding Hogwarts.
