Hello everyone, welcome to Part Three of Take the O.W.L.s Adventure Walkthrough for Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery. Last time, you convinced Andre to take his O.W.L.s more seriously since there is no guarantee his quidditch career will work out. You also prepared for both Charms and Transfiguration O.W.L.s. Later on, you took those O.W.Ls and now there are four others to go. Now you can continue where you left off and head to the Library to meet Tulip.
[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.]
When you arrive, you can interact with some of the characters before proceeding to talk to your friend.
Tulip will tell you that she actually called you to do something mischievous. You have two options to respond with. Both will lead to the same outcome with some minor dialogue differences, so pick whichever one you prefer.
After talking for a while, you’ll get to study Herbology with Tonks and Tulip. To complete this task, you need to earn at least one out of five possible stars within three hours. If you’ve been following this Walkthrough from the beginning, you should be pretty much out of energy, but that’s fine. Simply start the task, regardless of that.
For this task, you can simply earn a single star and then wait for the time to run out.
When you are done, you’ll learn that Tulip is still undecided about her future career.
She’ll ask for your opinion about this. This choice won’t have any significant effect on the story, but if you want to be supportive, it is recommended to pick the first option.
Your next task involves taking Herbology O.W.L. However, there is a waiting period of three hours before you can proceed. As long as you have 2 days left on the adventure timer, you should be fine with waiting.
Head to the classroom once you are able to continue.
You can check out what some of your friends have to say to you before proceeding.
After talking to Tulip for a bit, your Herbology O.W.L. will begin.
Like before, you’ll have to do the written portion of the exam first. Below are all the questions and the answers to them.
After you’re done with those questions, the practical part of the exam will start.
First, you’ll have to water your Screechsnap. Tap and hold anywhere on the screen until the icon is inside the green zone. Then continuously tap and release to keep it in the green zone for 4 seconds.
Next, you’ll need to assess the needs of the Dittany. You can do so by completing the Focus mini-task.
After that, you’ll have to fertilize your Fanged Geranium. This is a relatively easy tracing task, which shouldn’t be much of a problem for you.
Then, you’ll have to repot a baby Mandrake. This tracing task is a bit harder than the previous one, so be careful while doing it. Avoid going too fast or you might risk failing.
This will conclude your Herbology O.W.L. Professor Tofty will ask if you’d consider becoming a Herbologist. If this is something you’d like for your character, then be sure to tell him so.
Next, you should head to the Forbidden Forest to revise for Care of Magical Creatures.
Liz, Barnaby, and Charlie will join you for revising.
Sadly, Barnaby is not too confident he’ll do well in this O.W.L. You have three options to reply with. Each will have a fairly similar outcome, so feel free to pick the one you prefer.
You can then ask him one exam question to test his knowledge. This is a good opportunity to learn the answer to one of the questions. All of those will be covered later on, so feel free to pick whichever one you want.
Professor Kettleburn will then arrive and tell you he’s looking for his missing Bowtruckles.
Your next task involves helping the Professor find the Bowtruckle. To do that, you need to earn at least one out of five stars within three hours.
You should be at full energy at this point, which is why it is recommended to fully complete this task. Together with free energy spots, you should be able to complete this in one go.
Once you’re done, Barnaby will find the missing Bowtruckle.
The Professor will praise him for that, which might boost his confidence just enough for the upcoming exam.
Charlie will then ask if you’d consider becoming a Magizoologist. If this is a career you’d like to pursue with your character, then pick the first option.
Now is the time for your next O.W.L. Proceed to Care of Magical Creatures when you are ready.
Once you arrive, you’ll be able to interact with some of your classmates before continuing.
After talking with your friends for a bit, the O.W.L. will begin.
As before, the first part is the written exam which will test your knowledge of various magical creatures. Below are all the questions and the answers to them.
Once you’re done with that, it’s time for the practical exam.
You’ll first be tasked with determining the needs of a Kneazle. This can be done by completing a Focus mini-task.
Next, you’ll need to demonstrate luring back an escaped Bowtruckle. This is a tracing mini-task which is reasonably easy, but try not to go too fast or you might fail.
After that, you’ll be tasked with feeding a Fire Crab. This is perhaps, one of the easiest tracing tasks, so you should be able to complete it without a problem.
And lastly, you’ll need to find proper food for a sick Unicorn. This is just another Focus mini-task, which at this point, you are quite familiar with.
And with that, your Care of Magical Creatures O.W.L. will come to an end. Professor Tofty will ask if you have any interesting creature story to share with him. You have three options to choose from. Each will lead to some unique lines of dialogue without affecting the outcome of the adventure, so feel free to select the one you prefer.
After talking to him for a while, you’ll receive your next task. Proceed to the Library to revise History of Magic with Badeea.
When you arrive, you’ll notice the speech bubbles above some of the characters. Tap on those if you want to see what they have to say to you.
Badeea will thank you for agreeing to study with her.
She’ll tell you to ask her a question about History of Magic. This is an opportunity to learn the answer to one of the exam questions, so pick whichever one you want.
Sadly, she won’t remember the answer to that question, but Ismelda will arrive and she’ll answer it correctly, which will come as quite a surprise to you.
Apparently, she likes history a lot.
She’ll even offer to help you with revising. If you completed Crushed Side Quest, it will be referenced here.
Studying History of Magic requires earning at least one out of five possible stars within three hours. If you’ve been following this Walkthrough, at this point, your energy bar should be empty, but feel free to start the task regardless of that.
Simply wait an hour or so for some of your energy to recharge and then use it to gain one star. After that, simply wait for the timer to run out and the task will be finished while you’ll end up with nearly full energy bar. It’s worth noting that some of the dialogue presented after completing actions during this task will give you the answers to specific questions, but all of those will be covered in the next part of this Walkthrough, so you don’t need to worry about it.
Once you are done, Ismelda will ask if you’d consider becoming a Magical Historian. If this career is something you’d want for your character, be sure to tell her that.
After that, she’ll warn you that someone’s been spying on you lately, so you might want to watch your back.
Shortly after that, Part 3 of Take the O.W.L.s will come to an end. Hit the Collect button to claim your reward.
There are only two more O.W.L.s to go. Will you manage to do them with good marks? What will your final scores look like? And who’s been spying on you this entire time? Find out in Part 4 of this exciting adventure!
Thank you for reading.
