Hello everyone, welcome to our Walkthrough for Quidditch Season 1 Chapter 5 for Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery. Last time, you talked with the Quidditch commentator, Murphy McNully, and you found out that he could help you get acquainted with the captain of your House team, Orion Amari. While you did have to get on Murphy’s good side, eventually you realized he’s quite a nice fellow, and he even taught you a useful Quidditch strategy – Thimblerig Shuffle. Other than that, you finally got to meet Orion, and you found out that your Quidditch future is to be determined soon. There is a waiting period of three hours before you can meet with him again and discuss the tryouts. Since the Quidditch chapters are not time-limited, it is recommended to wait until this timer expires.
When you’re able to continue, proceed to the Quidditch Pitch to meet with Orion.
You’ll find him balancing on a broom.
Shortly after, you will ask him about the tryouts.
The answer he’ll give you may come as a surprise.
Finding balance requires earning five stars within three hours. All of the stars are needed to pass, which is why it’s recommended not to start this task if you’re low on energy.
Both Orion and your character have 5-cost actions tied to them, which should make this task easier to complete.
When you’re done, you will achieve balance and Orion will praise you.
Once again, you will ask him about Quidditch tryout.
He’ll answer your question with a question. None of the answers you can choose will influence the story in any meaningful way, so feel free to pick the one you prefer.
Apparently, Orion Amari is quite an interesting character.
Next, you will be tasked with completing 3 Quidditch friendlies. Do them just like any of the previous ones, and you should be fine.
After you finish those, proceed to the Quidditch Pitch to meet with Orion.
Once again, you will find him balancing on a broom. Still, he will avoid answering your question.
As it seems, you need to communicate on the same level.
Your character will be very eager to talk about tryouts.
And Orion will be happy to provide you the answers.
However, before you’re able to ask him anything, several Pixies will start flying around you, which will make things a bit more difficult.
Maintaining balance requires earning five stars within eight hours. All five stars are needed to pass.
There are quite a few 5-cost actions available, which should save you some energy.
When you are done, the Pixies will fly away, but sadly, you didn’t get to ask Orion any question.
Somehow, he didn’t notice any of them.
Apparently, he was so focused he didn’t let anything distract him from balancing. You have two options to respond. Neither of those will influence the outcome of the story, so feel free to take your pick.
You’ll then mention the magical creatures he was listing while he was balancing.
For some reason, they are important, but Orion won’t specify why exactly.
Sadly, he won’t be willing to answer any more of your question since your practice is about to begin.
Your next task requires you to complete 2 Quidditch friendlies. By now, you should be quite proficient when it comes to these, so you shouldn’t have much trouble.
Once you’re done, you’ll be tasked with meeting with Murphy. Proceed to the Commentary Box when you are ready.
As it turns out, Murphy was the one who released the Pixies.
And apparently, Orion was the one who came up with the idea.
Most importantly, you will learn that the Chaser tryouts are today.
This will come as a huge surprise since Orion didn’t say anything about the tryouts.
McNully will propose a new strategy.
Learning Murphy’s strategy requires earning at least one out of five stars within three hours.
There are quite a few 5-cost actions available here, which should make things a bit easier for you.
Basically, what Murphy’s suggesting is pushing Orion until he gives you a tryout.
He’ll be curious to know what you think of Orion. There are three options to respond with, but none of these will influence the story in any significant way, so pick whichever one you want.
He’ll then suggest you go and talk to Orion as soon as possible.
Which is more or less in about five hours. Simply wait until this timer expires since there is no time limit involved in Quidditch chapters.
Once the waiting time is over, head to the Quidditch Pitch to meet with Orion.
Upon arriving, you will cut straight to the chase.
Orion will then ask you a question. There are three options to respond with, but none of these will change the outcome of the story, so feel free to take your pick.
He will then praise you for your efforts.
And most importantly, you have earned yourself a Quidditch tryout!
Moments later, Skye will arrive.
Apparently, she heard you yelling from afar.
She’ll suggest practicing a bit before your tryouts.
The window will display the available positions, rewards, and the cost of Friendly. Complete it like the other ones you did so far and you should be fine.
Once you’re done, Orion will tell you to prepare for the tryouts.
You have about six hours to get ready. As usual, simply wait until the timer expires since there is no need to rush the Quidditch chapters.
Once you’re able to continue, head to the Quidditch Changing Room.
Upon arriving, you can interact with some of the other players before proceeding.
Skye will ask you a question before the tryouts start. None of the answers will have any big impact on the story, so pick the one you prefer.
She’ll give you some final advice and she’ll wish you good luck before she leaves the changing room.
It looks like Murphy is just as excited about the tryouts.
However, some of the players will be bothered by his loud excitement.
Murphy will be curious to know how ready are you. There are three options to respond with. While some of these will lead to rather interesting dialogue lines, none will affect the outcome of the story, so feel free to take your pick.
Lastly, Orion will arrive and ask if your mind is open and clear. Once again, these responses will influence some dialogue lines, but ultimately won’t affect the story, so simply choose the option you prefer.
He’ll give you some final words of advice before the tryouts start.
Shortly after, Penny will arrive to give you some words of encouragement.
Moments later, Madam Hooch will announce that the Quidditch tryouts are starting.
The task window will display the positions you can select, rewards, and the cost. Hit the Start when you are ready.
This time, both Skye and Orion will sit in the commentary box, and observe the tryouts.
This friendly will be quite similar to most other Quidditch matches you played so far. However, this one will be significantly longer and will feature a lot more maneuvers. Once you are done, hit the Collect button to continue.
This will conclude Chapter 5 of Season 1 of Quidditch.
The tryouts are done. But was Orion impressed by your performance? Will you get to become the Chaser for your House team? Find out in the next Chapter of Quidditch for Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery.
Thank you for reading.
