Ravenclaw Is The Worst Hogwarts House In Harry Potter, New Game Proves

Ravenclaw Is The Worst Hogwarts House In Harry Potter, New Game Proves Warner Bros. Games

Ravenclaw has been proven to be the worst house in Hogwarts, at least according to the RPG game “Hogwarts Legacy.” While it’s known for welcoming those who are especially intelligent and inquisitive, those who are sorted into the house in the new game end up with a distinct disadvantage.

Those playing “Hogwarts Legacy” can connect their WB Games and/or Harry Potter Fan Club accounts to be sorted. However, you can also choose to be sorted in the game itself. Which house you’re in doesn’t change the storyline of the game or how it proceeds. However, you meet different characters based on what house you’re in.

Gryffindor students are introduced to Natsai Onai, Sebastian Sallow is linked up with Slytherins, Hufflepuff meets Poppy Sweeting, and Ravenclaws get acquainted with Amit Thakkar. So far, so good.

However, as you proceed in the game, you notice that hitting max relationship marks with Sebastian, Poppy, and Natsai will earn you a bronze trophy to add to your virtual cabinet. Being BFFs with Amit, however, earns you nothing at all. What’s up with that?

There is one small advantage to being a Ravenclaw in “Hogwarts Legacy.” Turns out, being pally with Amit will unlock the game’s Astronomy Tables, a collectible in the game. Plus, you’re still able to work towards collecting all 603 Collector’s Edition trophies by completing different sections throughout.

“Hogwarts Legacy” is expected to sell more than 10 million copies. In fact, more than 489,000 people pre-ordered it on Steam. No doubt fans are desperate to get playing given that it was delayed twice. Thanks to JK Rowling‘s new status as a full-time TERF, there was also a lot of controversy surrounding the release.

Thankfully, Rowling had nothing to do with the development of “Hogwarts Legacy.” Avalanche and Warner Bros. also included an openly trans character, the first in Harry Potter history.
