Is it Better to Lie or Tell the Truth in Hogwarts Legacy?
When it comes to lying versus honesty in Hogwarts Legacy, neither choice is “better.” As Hogwarts Legacy is an RPG, you should view the dialogue options as the “roleplaying” element of the game. The purpose is to put yourself in the protagonist’s shoes and think through the mind of the witch or wizard you molded. What would your created character do in the situation? Are they an extension of your own personality, or is your character an entirely unique individual? These questions can be helpful for determining the preferable conversation choice. In the worst-case scenario, if you can’t decide, then flip a coin or randomly choose either option, as it ultimately will not affect the game.
