Hello everyone, it’s time for Chapter Four of Year Two of our Magical Journey Walkthrough for Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery. In the previous Chapter, you managed to sneak into Slytherin Common Room and retrieve the Black Quill that was hidden in there. Afterward, you used Reparifarge, and it turned into another note pointing to one of the corridors in Hogwarts. You also helped your house by completing the side quest. After that, you and one of your friends went to the corridor where you found Ben trapped in the cursed ice. Luckily, Professors McGonagall and Snape arrived a bit before you and used their magical skills and knowledge to free Ben from the ice.
So, let’s begin another chapter of this amazing adventure! Since Ben is resting now, there is a three-hour waiting period before you can visit him. Instead, it is suggested that you focus on the lessons part of the chapter first. Hit the GO button and proceed to the Transfiguration Classroom.
To unlock Reparo lesson, you need to earn a total of seven stars from Transfiguration class. If you want to do it as quickly as possible, the best way is to do an eight-hour class and a two-hour class. However, if you want to gain more attribute and house points, it is recommended that you do two eight-hour classes. When you are ready, hit the Start button to begin.
Do these lessons like any other – complete various actions by tapping on the glowing objects in order to fill up the star meter and earn stars. It is somewhat recommended to complete the higher cost actions since those will fill up more of the star meter per energy point spent.
Pay extra attention to the mini-tasks after you earn stars since each of those will provide you with ten Knowledge points upon successful completion.
After you are done, the Reparo lesson should be available. Hit the GO button and return to Transfiguration classroom. In order to pass this lesson, you need to earn five stars within eight hours. It is recommended to start this with full energy so you won’t have any problem completing it in time. Once you are ready, tap on the Start button to begin.
After a brief introduction from Professor McGonagall, the lesson will start. Complete it in the same manner as any other eight-hour class.
And once again, pay attention to the mini-tasks since completing each of those will boost your Knowledge attribute by ten points.
After you manage to earn all five stars, it is time to cast Reparo. Trace the path on the screen to successfully cast the spell.
Congratulations! You just learned another spell that will surely be useful in your future adventures. Now is the time to visit Ben and see how he’s doing. Hit the GO button and proceed to the Hospital Wing.
When you get there, you’ll see the exclamation mark above Madam Pomfrey. Tap on it to initiate the conversation with her. After a bit of dialogue, she will ask why you need to see Ben. You have three response options.
The first two options will award you with five attribute points each, while the third one will give you ten points in Empathy attribute and is the preferred one if you have level nine Empathy or higher. No matter which option you select, Madam Pomfrey will allow you to see Ben. After talking to him for a while, you will find out that he doesn’t remember anything that happened, so you should go back to the icy corridor with Rowan and see if you can find any clues there. Hit the GO button and proceed to meet with Rowan.
When you get there, you will explain the situation to him, but he will sound a bit suspicious of Ben. He will think there is something Ben is not telling you. You can respond to that in three different ways.
Each option will give you five points in a different attribute, but the outcome is pretty much the same. Both of you will decide it is for the best to search the corridor and see if you can find anything. This task requires you to earn five stars within three hours, but only one is required to pass. Once you are ready, hit the Start button to begin.
Simply tap on the glowing objects in order to complete actions. This will fill up the star meter and earn you stars.
When you are done, hit the Collect button to continue. You will find something strange on the nearby wall. After both of you check it out you will come to a conclusion that it could be some sort of illusion or a hidden passage. Rowan will explain that there is a Transfiguration charm that could reveal things for what they truly are. It is called Revelio and it is not an easy spell to learn.
The next task is to see if Professor McGonagall would be willing to teach you the Revealing Charm. However, at the same time, you will get the side quest to talk to Penny. This is recommended since it will provide you with nice rewards. Hit the GO button and proceed to the Great Hall to meet with her. When you get there, you’ll notice that some characters have speech bubbles above them. Tap on those if you are interested to see what they have to say to you.
When you’re done with that, tap on the exclamation mark to start the conversation with Penny. She will tell you that Merula is planning to duel you again. She apparently couldn’t move on after you defeated and embarrassed her in front of everyone.
Luckily, you have a Potions class with her soon, so you might be able to talk some sense into her. Hit the GO button and proceed to the Potions classroom. Once you are there, you can tap on the speech bubbles above some of the students to see what they have to say.
After that, tap on the exclamation mark to initiate the conversation with Merula. She will clearly state that she wants to get her revenge on you. Then you will have to complete the Potions class. It will require you to earn five stars within three hours, with one star being required to pass.
There is not much to say about this lesson. Simply try to optimize energy usage by completing the high-cost actions and give it your best to earn some additional Knowledge points by successfully doing the mini tasks.
After you’re done, you’ll try reasoning with Merula, but she simply won’t listen. She will even try to get you to duel her by insulting your brother. You can accept or refuse it.
The first option requires you to have level eleven in the Courage attribute and is the preferred one since even if you refuse, she will threaten to hurt your friends, so you will be forced to duel her anyway. She seems so confident in her abilities that she’ll even let you train and prepare before the duel. Luckily, Penny has offered to help you with this. There is, however, three hours of waiting time before she is ready. You can either wait a bit or use some gems to speed up the process. In any case, when you are ready, hit the GO button and proceed to the Training Grounds.
Penny will be both excited and happy to help you prepare. After a bit of talking, tap on the crossed wands icon to open a dueling window. Here, you’ll be able to see the recommended attribute levels as well as the gold cost of the duel. Once ready, hit the Start button to begin.
Majority of the times, Penny will use Sneaky stance, so if you go for Aggressive against her, you will be able to defeat her easily. Keep in mind that she won’t always go for Sneaky stance, but in most cases, she will.
After you defeat her, both of you will thank each other for the practice and training. She will then ask what strategy do you plan to use in order to defeat Merula. You can answer in three different ways.
Each of those answers will give you five points in a different attribute, but there is not much difference in the outcome. Penny will wish you good luck in the upcoming duel and you two will part ways. Your next task is to duel Merula. There is an eight-hour timer before you can do so. You can either wait for it or spend some gems to completely remove the waiting time. In any case, once you are ready, hit the GO button and proceed to the Courtyard.
When you get there you’ll see that Merula is already waiting for you. After trying to reason with her one more time, and seeing it’s impossible, tap on the crossed wands icon to continue. This will bring up the duel window where you can see the recommended attribute levels and the duel cost. When you are ready, hit the Start button to begin.
As much as she claims to be powerful, this will probably be one of the easiest duels you’ve had so far. The reason for this is that she will go with Aggressive stance most of the time, so simply select Defensive and you will beat her in no time. Keep in mind that she will not always behave this way, but in the majority of cases, she will stick to Aggressive.
After you defeat her, she will be shocked and surprised. She’ll ask what is your secret for being so powerful. You have three options to respond with.
You will get five attribute points for each of those answers, but the outcome is pretty much the same. Merula will continue being Merula and there is nothing you can do to change that. In any case, hit the Collect button to claim some nice rewards for completing this quest. Your next task is to talk to Professor McGonagall about Revelio charm. Tap on the GO button and proceed to the Transfiguration classroom.
When you get there, you will see that some of the students have something to tell you. Tap on their speech bubbles to see what they have to say. Afterward, tap on the exclamation mark to initiate the conversation with Professor McGonagall. She will reward your dedication and willingness to find Ben while he was missing with twenty House Points. Afterward, you’ll talk to her about Revelio charm and she will want to know why you are interested in learning it. You have three options to respond with.
The first option is worth only five attribute points and should, in general, be avoided. The second one requires you to have level nine in Empathy, while for the third one you need Knowledge level eleven. Those options are highly recommended since they will award you with ten attribute points. After a bit more talk, Professor McGonagall will give you a chance to prove yourself ready to learn Revelio. Hit the GO button and proceed back to the Transfiguration classroom. This class requires you to earn five stars within one hour, but only one is required to pass. This is an extremely good opportunity to earn some attribute points because all five stars can be obtained with one full energy bar and each star will give you a reward and a mini-task for additional Knowledge points. For that reason, it is extremely recommended to have full energy when starting. Once you are ready, hit the Start button to begin.
Do this in the same manner as other lessons and you will be done in no time.
Completing this will open up Revelio lesson, but there is a three-hour timer before you can proceed. You can wait a bit or spend some gems to remove the waiting time, it’s up to you. Once you are ready, hit the GO button and return to Transfiguration classroom. Professor McGonagall will explain some basics to you before the lesson starts. In order to learn the Revealing charm, you need to earn five stars within three hours. This can prove to be a bit challenging if you start with low energy, so it is strongly recommended to be at full energy when starting. When you are ready, hit the Start button to begin.
This is more of a story task than a lesson since there are no rewards nor mini-tasks after each star. Simply complete it in the same manner as any other task and you should be able to do it in time.
After obtaining all five stars, it’s time to cast Revelio. Trace the path on the screen to successfully cast the Revealing Charm.
Congratulations! Now you have all the means to explore the icy corridor. Sadly, there is a three-hour waiting period before you can continue. Once you are ready, hit the GO button and proceed there to meet with Rowan. You’ll find him waiting for you near the suspicious wall. After a bit of talking you will try casting Revelio. Trace the path on the screen to cast the Revealing Charm.
The spell will work and reveal the hidden staircase. It is most likely the same one from your vision back in year one. After a bit of talking, Rowan will ask what the next course of action is. You have three different options.
Each option will give you five points in a different attribute, but regardless of your choice, you will decide to proceed and explore where the staircase leads to. But in order to do so, you will need to illuminate your surroundings. Trace the path on the screen in order to cast Lumos.
After ascending the stairs, you will find yourselves in a completely unknown corridor. Both Rowan and you will feel the immense cold radiating around and agree that the best course of action is to search the place as quickly as possible. This task requires you to earn five stars within three hours, with one star being required to pass. Once ready, hit the Start button to begin.
There is nothing much to say about this task, simply try to optimize the energy usage by completing the actions with high energy requirements and you shouldn’t have any problems completing this.
After you complete this, you will discover a set of footprints leading further into the corridor. Rowan and you will decide to follow it and see where it leads. You’ll stumble upon a section of the corridor covered in a freezing mist. Trace the path on the screen to cast Flipendo.
The knockback jinx will disperse the mist and reveal a door completely encased in ice. It appears to be one of the Cursed Vaults. Rowan will ask what to do next. You have three response options.
The first option requires you to have Courage attribute at level eleven but is the preferred one since it will award you with ten Courage points. No matter which option you choose, your character will approach the door and have another vision. After a bit of talking with Rowan, the door will start shooting ice bolts. One of those will hit Rowan and send him flying down the stairs.
You will decide to quickly take him to safety, hoping that he is not seriously injured. This will conclude the Fourth Chapter of Year Two of our Magical Journey. How did you find this one?
