Hello everyone, it’s time for Part Two of Take the O.W.L.s Adventure Walkthrough for Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery. In the previous part, you learned some details about the O.W.L.s exams and you took the Potions O.W.L. However, there is still a long way to go until your exams are over. Proceed to the Three Broomsticks when you are ready.
[Disclaimer: There are some reports that certain non-exam tasks have been changed and now require 5 out of 5 stars to complete. If this is the case for you, simply avoid starting these tasks with an empty energy bar and be sure to fully complete them. The screenshots in this walkthrough were taken during the first version of the adventure but all of the exam questions and tasks should still be the same.]
Upon arriving, you’ll be able to interact with some of the characters before continuing.
Charlie will explain that Andre wasn’t studying much for his O.W.L.s since he wants to become a professional Quidditch player.
You’ll then get to reason with Andre and convince him that he should take his O.W.L.s seriously. The task window will display the recommended attribute levels and the gold cost of each attempt.
This functions quite similar to drinking butterbeer with friends. Simply pick the most reasonable lines and you’ll be fine. The attribute requirements are quite low, which will pretty much trivialize the difficulty of this task. Below are some of the questions and answers to them.
In the end, Andre will see the wisdom of your words.
He’ll then ask if you’ve ever considered a career outside of academics. You have two response options. These won’t influence the outcome of the story, so feel free to pick the option you prefer.
You’ll then get to revise for the upcoming Charms O.W.L. in your Common Room. Proceed there when you are ready.
When you arrive, you can interact with some of your housemates.
This part will play out quite differently, depending on the House you’re in. Dialogue lines will vary significantly, but eventually, you’ll get to the revision part which is fairly similar for each House. This task requires earning five stars within three hours with one star being needed to pass.
If you’ve been following this Walkthrough so far, you should be at full energy when you start the task. Because of this, it is highly recommended to fully complete it, which will require around 60 energy points in total.
Once you’re done, Rowan will be curious to know if you’re interested in becoming a professor. If this is something you’d like for your character, then pick “Yes” for an answer.
Now is the time for your next O.W.L. Head to the Charms Classroom when you are ready.
When you arrive, you can tap on the speech bubbles above some of your classmates to see what they have to say to you.
You’ll get to ask Professor Tofty a question before the test begins. None of those will impact the story, but you will be able to learn some additional information. In any case, feel free to ask him any of those questions.
Shortly after, your Charms O.W.L. will start.
The first part of the test is the written exam. You’ll need to answer four questions about various spells and their uses. Below are all the questions and the answers to them.
When you’re done with the written part, the practical exam will begin.
First, you’ll need to demonstrate the Levitation Charm. Trace the wand movement on the screen to do so. Be careful when doing this since you don’t want to go too fast or you might risk failing the task.
Next, you’ll be tasked with performing the Eradication Spell.
After that, you’ll need to cast the Engorgement Charm on a cauldron in front of you. This should prove trivial, given how many times you used it on a Butterbeer.
And lastly, you’ll be tasked with terminating the effects of Levitation Charm by casting Finite Incantatem. As before, don’t rush this. Simply do it steadily and you shouldn’t have any problems.
This will conclude the Charms O.W.L. Not long after you’re finished, Penny will say she’s worried about Tonks and she’ll ask you to find her and see what’s upsetting her. Apparently, Penny still has a lot of revising to do, which is why she’s relying on you to help her.
Head to the Zonko to meet her. If you are looking to save some energy and complete the adventure quickly, go there immediately.
Once you arrive, you’ll notice the speech bubbles above some of the characters. Tap on those if you want to find out what they have to say to you.
As it turns out, Tonks is worried about her O.W.L.s. She aims to become an Auror, but in order to do so, she really needs to perform well on the exams.
You’ll have three options to respond to her. Each of those will lead to the same outcome, but with some slight dialogue differences, so pick the option you find the most preferable for the situation.
You’ll then get to shop with her and distract her from all the worries. Doing so requires obtaining five stars within three hours, but only one star is needed to pass.
Despite having an empty energy bar, start the task immediately and after one hour or so, you’ll regen enough energy to earn one star, which is all you need to pass. Afterward, simply wait for the timer to expire, which will regenerate back most of your energy.
Afterward, Ben will arrive and tell you that Madam Pomfrey asked him to help nervous students relax. You have two options to respond to this. None of those will have any significant impact on the story, so pick the one you prefer.
Ben will give Tonks a nice piece of advice.
This will give you a funny idea that might help her deal with the situation.
Proceed to the caretaker’s office for the next task.
Basically, your idea involves tricking Filch to help her relax.
However, she’ll fail to find it relevant to becoming an Auror. You have three options to respond to this. Each of those will lead to the same outcome, so pick the one you want.
In the end, you’ll decide to find Filch’s disciplinary records and transfigure them into a rat. Doing this requires earning at least one out of five possible stars within three hours.
It is recommended to fully complete this task and to do that, you’ll need around 60 energy.
Once you are done, you’ll learn that the caretaker was keeping notes on Professor Tofty.
Tonks will then transfigure Filch’s notes into a rat, and she’ll be quite happy while doing so.
She’ll then ask if you picked a career you’d like to pursue once you graduate from Hogwarts. You have three response options. None of those will have a heavy impact on the story, so pick whichever option you prefer.
Tonks will then suggest that perhaps you should become an Auror and she’ll ask if you’d like that kind of job. If that is a career you’d like for your character, be sure to pick the first option.
Shortly after that, it’s time to take your next O.W.L. Head to the Transfiguration Classroom when you are ready.
Upon arriving, you can interact with some of your classmates before continuing.
After talking for a while, your Transfiguration O.W.L. will begin.
Like before, you’ll need to go through the written part of the exam first. Below are all the questions and answers to them.
After that, it’s time for the practical exam. First, you’ll need to Transfigure rat into a water goblet. Trace the wand movement on the screen to do so.
Next, you’ll need to cast the Serpensortia. This is perhaps, one of the easiest tracing tasks.
After that, you’ll be tasked with casting the Vanishing Spell. Trace the wand movement on the screen to do so. This is one of the trickier tasks, so be careful while doing it.
Lastly, you’ll need to perform the Switching Spell by switching a Pillow and Armadillo.
This will conclude your Transfiguration O.W.L. Professor Tofty will praise your skills by mentioning you are skilled enough to Tranfigure paper into rats. Could he perhaps be alluding to something… You have two options to reply with. Bear in mind that these will lead to different outcomes, so if you want to see some additional dialogue, pick the first option.
If you go with the first choice, you’ll also have the option to tell him that Filch has notes on him. Whether you want to do that or not is entirely up to you.
Not long after that, Part 2 of Take the O.W.L.s adventure will come to an end. Hit the Collect button to claim your rewards.
You’re almost halfway through your O.W.L.s and there is still a long way to go. What awaits you during Herbology and Care of Magical Creatures O.W.L.s? Will you manage to complete them with the highest score? Find out in the next part of this amazing adventure!
