Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery Guide, Tips and Tricks
You finally received it. Your Hogwarts letter has finally arrived on the eve of your 11th birthday. You’ve been waiting for this, ever since you learned of your brother’s exploits and what he has done to harm your family’s reputation. You’ve lived under the scrutinizing gaze of the magical society for so long, and now it’s your turn to prove that you aren’t like your brother, and that the magical society should fear and revere you. There have also been strange things going on inside of Hogwarts, so it is up to you to figure out what the mysteries are. Welcome to Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery, where you create your prophecy.
Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery is a simple RPG. Having received your letter from Hogwarts, you plan to go there for all of your magical training. You will learn a plethora of enjoyable skills, such as broomstick riding, making different potions, and how to cast a multitude of spells. You will need to learn how to defend yourself, as well as pluck up the courage to stand up for yourself and weave your own story. Although it may seem straightforward, the game itself doesn’t make it too easy. As such, there are always little things that can be done to speed up the learning process. Here are a few tips and tricks to help you learn how to become the best wizard at Hogwarts.
Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery Guide
To start with, the game controls like a simple point and click game. You click around to various locations, as well as click to collect and pick up different items and collectibles. These collectables will allow you to gain growth and knowledge, and help you prove yourself.
When you get past the tutorial, you will be able to select a house. I bring this up, as this does not really influence the game too much, and shouldn’t be worried about as such. Instead, it is simply how you will interact with others throughout the game. Each player will be able to select one of the houses, as any student will get to in Hogwarts. What the people do at Hogwarts will either increase their house points, or decrease them. As such, consider your actions carefully.
You will also learn how to draw different spells. It will be quite easy early on, but later on in the game, you will have to be able to do it consistently and quickly, as there will be such things as duels, in which the one that casts the fastest will be the winner. As such, remember spells quickly.
Tips #1: Leveling Quickly
As you go through the game, you will run into different scenarios that will help your progress, as well as find different hidden items. Each of these will help you level up, and gain access to new areas of Hogwarts. The main way you level is through three different stats: Empathy, Knowledge, and Courage. Each one needs a certain of amount of points to rank up.
All of them do not directly affect your game, per se. Instead, they allow you to choose a wide range of different answers when put in front of different characters and discussion systems. For instance, when you are being asked questions in class, you can either answer with a basic question, or, if you have the knowledge for it, you can give a more in-depth answer, and possibly gain the favor of a teacher. This favor will generally correlate with increases in house points, so it is in your favor to pick the right responses.
You can try to spec into one of them, as it will help you later on. Different scenarios require different things. When dealing with bullies, you will need courage. In classes, you will need knowledge. As such, play to what you like best, and make sure to make it work.
The best way to speed this up is to correctly finish off every scenario quickly. Clicking on the right things, and making sure to get the most out of your energy is important. As you are limited on energy, you must time it right, and make sure to keep a timer of how long it will be until you are full again. Never let your energy be full, as that will mean that the game is not stacking any more energy for you, and that will be time wasted within the game.
Tips #2: Choose your Time Wisely
The most important thing to remember is to only pick scenarios that fit into your time frame. Each scenario has a limited time that it can be completed, ranging from 1 hour to 8 hours, or even more, depending on the scenario at hand. This can be things like taking a class, getting out of a dire situation, or hanging out with a friend. As such, only do a scenario when you know you will have enough time. If you don’t time this out right, you will end up failing the scenario, and lose out on experience, and possibly lose out on house points as well.
One thing to attempt to do is time your level ups with your energy respawns. As you go through, you will sometimes gain a full amount of energy, which is important. If you can time these in a scenario run, you will be able to speed up the grind, and end the scenario quickly without wasting a lot of time, thus allowing you to enter another scenario quicker. Although this is extremely difficult to do, it will be well worth it in the end.
These are just the basics as to how to get better quickly. There are plenty more of these little tips and tricks, such as always going to meet up with friends, and having them help you duel, but in essence, these will get you responses quicker, and make sure you are stronger than anyone else you’ll ever face. Good luck, and happy Magicing at Hogwarts!
