Choosing a House

When creating your character, you'll be sorted into one of the four Hogwarts houses: Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, or Slytherin. Each house has its own strengths and weaknesses, so choose the one that fits your playstyle. Gryffindors are brave and daring, Hufflepuffs are loyal and hardworking, Ravenclaws are intelligent and curious, and Slytherins are ambitious and cunning.

However, that being said the house you choose will have no real overall effect on the way the game plays out. You may befriend different characters in the game, only have access to your chosen house's common room and your appearance may have elements of your house colors, but apart from that there aren't really any major differences.

Customizing Your Appearance

Once you've chosen your House, you can customize your character's appearance. You can choose your character's gender, hairstyle, facial features, and more. Experiment with different options until you find a look that you're happy with.

Choose your Wand: Your wand is an important part of your character, and each wand has its own unique properties. You'll be given a choice of three wands at the beginning of the game, so choose the one that best fits your playstyle.


Invest in Skills that complement your playstyle: As you progress through the game, you'll be able to invest skill points in various attributes, such as Strength, Agility, and Intelligence. Choose skills that complement your playstyle and the type of character you want to play.

Consider your Background: Your character's background can have an impact on the game. For example, if you choose to be a Muggle-born, you may encounter some prejudice from other characters. Think about how your character's background fits into the game's story and choose accordingly.

Remember that you can easily change your appearance in the game, but not your house, so choose wisely!
