Hello everyone, it’s time for the Fourth and Final Part of Take the O.W.L.s Adventure Walkthrough for Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery. In the previous part, you took Herbology and Care of Magical Creatures O.W.L.s. There are only two more exams to go until you’re done. So, head to the History of Magic classroom to take your next O.W.L.
[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 can check out what some of your classmates have to say before continuing.
Before the exam starts, Badeea will ask if you think Ismelda was telling the truth about someone spying on you. There are two options to reply with. Each will lead to a different dialogue, but the overall outcome of the story won’t be affected, so feel free to go with the one you prefer.
Shortly after, the exam will start.
Unlike the other ones, this O.W.L. will only consist of a written part.
In other words, all eight mini-tasks will be questions. Below are all of them as well as all of the answers.
When you are done, Professor Tofty will tell you that a countless number of wizards and witches had been searching for the Cursed Vaults before you, but so far none of them were successful.
And as it turns out, you could end up in the history books one day. You have two options to respond to this. These won’t have any significant impact on the story, so pick whichever one you want.
Shortly after that, Diego will arrive and ask if you want to practice for the Defence Against the Dark Arts O.W.L. with him and Merula.
Proceed to the Training Grounds when you are ready.
As it turns out, it was Merula’s idea to have you join them for practice.
Which will embarrass her quite a bit.
She’ll then say that you probably don’t know the incantation of the Snake-Vanishing Spell. There are three options to choose from, but the correct answer is Vipera Evanesca. However, picking one of the incorrect options will lead to some interesting dialogue lines, so feel free to pick the one you prefer.
You’ll then get to practice spellcasting. To do this task, you need to obtain at least one out of five stars within three hours.
If you’ve been following the Walkthrough, you should be at full energy at this point, so it is recommended to fully complete this task. This will take about 60 energy on average.
Once you’re done, you’ll notice that Merula is quite confident that you’re aiming to become a Curse-Breaker. If this is a career you’d like to pursue, then be sure to tell her that.
After talking for some more, you’ll receive the next task. Proceed to the Headmaster’s office when you are ready.
Once you arrive, Professor Dumbledore will ask you to find a place to hide.
This task requires earning at least one out of five possible stars within eight hours.
There is a waiting period after this task, which is why it’s highly recommended to fully complete it as soon as possible.
Upon the completion of this task, Professor Tofty will arrive to talk to the Headmaster.
As it turns out, he was the one that’s been spying on you this whole time.
Professor Tofty will explain why he was asked by the Ministry to keep an eye on you.
Shortly after, he’ll leave, and you’ll come out of hiding. Dumbledore will give you one last piece of advice before you go.
There is a waiting period of five hours before you’re able to take your final O.W.L. If the remaining time on the adventure is above eight hours or so, you should be fine with waiting. Otherwise, you might want to consider using some gems to speed things up.
Either way, once you’re able to continue, proceed to the Defence Against the Dark Arts Classroom.
When you get there, you can tap on the speech bubbles above some of your classmates to see what they have to say.
Like before, you’ll first need to do the written portion of the exam.
Below are all the questions and the answers to them.
Afterward, you’ll need to go through the practical section of the exam.
First, you’ll need to cast a protective enchantment on the classroom. Trace the wand movement on the screen to do so. Be careful not to go too fast or you might risk failing.
Next, you’ll be tasked with casting the Boggart-Banishing Spell.
This should be a relatively easy tracing task.
You’ll then need to use the Stunning Spell. This is also one of the easier tracing tasks.
Lastly, you’ll be tasked with casting the Counter-Curse. This is perhaps, one of the hardest tracing tasks, so be extra careful while doing it.
Professor Tofty will congratulate everyone for completing their O.W.L.s. All that’s left is to wait for the results.
You’ll then confront him and tell him you know he’s been sent by the Ministry to spy on you.
You’ll then get the chance to ask him one question. Each of those will provide you with some information, but in general, none will have an effect on the outcome of the story, so feel free to ask the question you want.
Shortly after that, you’ll get your final task. Head to the Great Hall when you are ready.
Upon arriving, you can interact with some of your friends before continuing.
You’ll then get to discuss O.W.L.s with your friends until your Head of House is ready to talk to you. This requires earning at least one out of five stars within three hours.
Since it’s the final task, you should fully complete it. You’ll likely be at full energy at this point, so if you use that together with the free energy spots, you can easily finish it in one go.
Once you’re done, your Head of House will be ready to talk to you about your future career.
You’ll then be asked if you’ve made a decision about it. You have two options to respond with. Both will lead to pretty much same outcome, so feel free to pick whichever one you want.
Professor Tofty will then appear and wish you the best of luck.
And most importantly, he’ll give you the results of your O.W.L.s.
You’ll be able to see the results for each of the subjects. Keep in mind that even if you got everything wrong, your scores will never go below Acceptable. You can check these at any time by tapping on the envelope in your dormitory.
With this, Taking the O.W.L.s adventure will come to an end. Hit the Collect button to claim your rewards.
Regardless of your scores, you’ll always receive the Silver Owl pendant.
But if you managed to get Outstanding score in all of the classes, you will also get the Golden Owl Pendant, which has some nice additional details.
This was perhaps one of the most important adventures so far and one that will likely be heavily referenced in the future, especially in Year 7 during your N.E.W.T.s. Now you can take some well-deserved break from studying and focus on finding the remaining Cursed Vaults.
Thank you for reading and see you soon in some of the future adventures!
