Hello everyone, welcome to Chapter Nine of Year Two of our Magical Journey Walkthrough for Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery. In the previous chapter, you learned Episkey Charm by assisting Madam Pomfrey in the Hospital wing. Thankfully, Bill managed to recover from the cursed ice without any lasting consequences. And not just that, he is eager and willing to help you with opening the cursed vault and breaking the curse once and for all. Also, all of your friends agreed to assist you with this, so you helped them prepare for the upcoming adventure.
Now is the time to continue where we left off. It is recommended that you start the chapter by doing the lessons part first. Hit the GO button and proceed to the Transfiguration classroom.
Unlocking Porcupine to Pin Cushion lesson will require you to earn a total of nine stars from Transfiguration Class. One of the easiest ways to do it is by completing three of the three-hour classes. If, however, you want to get some additional attribute and house points, you could go for two of the eight-hour classes instead. Anyway, when you decide which class to take, hit the Start button to begin.
As always, complete actions by tapping on the glowing objects in order to fill up the star meter and earn stars. Prioritize the actions with a high energy cost. That way you will fill up the star meter faster and save some energy.
Also, try to successfully complete mini-tasks after earning each star since those will award you with ten Knowledge points.
When you are done, hit the Collect button to continue.
After you earn a total of nine stars, Porcupine to Pin Cushion lesson will be unlocked, so proceed back to the Transfiguration Classroom. To complete this lesson, you need to earn five stars within three hours. Since all the stars are required to pass, it is somewhat recommended to have full energy prior to starting it.
There isn’t much difference between this lesson and regular classes. Simply follow the same steps and you’ll be done before you know it.
After you obtain the fifth star, it is time to cast the spell. Trace the wand movement on the screen to successfully turn your porcupine into a pin cushion.
Congratulation! You’ve completed the last Transfiguration lesson for this year. Now you can continue with the story. Hit the GO button and proceed to the Courtyard. On the way there, you will encounter Hagrid. He’ll inform you that the cursed ice is spreading throughout Hogwarts rapidly and that the professors are doing everything in their power to stop it. He’ll even mention that Dumbledore is looking for a Curse-Breaker to help with the whole situation. You can respond to him in two different ways.
The first option requires you to have level twelve Courage but is generally preferred since it awards you with ten attribute points. Afterward, continue to the Courtyard to meet with Bill. After talking with him for a while, you’ll have to choose only one of your friends to accompany you to the cursed vault. The other two will help the professors deal with the cursed ice. This is an important choice. The reason for that is simple – if you select Ben, you will avoid getting fifty house points penalty afterward. So, in case that you are struggling with the house points, you might want to consider bringing Ben along.
After that, you’ll talk to Bill a bit longer and then you’ll decide to meet with a friend you selected for the adventure. Hit the GO button and proceed to the Great Hall.
Once you get there, you will notice the speech bubbles above some of the students. Tap on those if you are interested to see what they have to say.
After that, tap on the exclamation mark to initiate the conversation. After talking for a while, your friend will ask you why did you choose him/her for this adventure. You have three options to respond with.
No matter which character you selected, there will always be one option that requires a certain attribute level. That one is preferred since it will give you ten attribute points, compared to five you would receive from the other two. Regardless of the option you select, it will take some more convincing to persuade your friend to join you. Tapping on the handshake icon will open the task window.
It will display the recommended attribute levels as well as the gold cost of starting it. Once you are ready, hit the Start button to begin.
This task is almost identical to meal with a friend mini-game. The only noticeable difference is that you have six turns to complete it. Simply be friendly and try to explain to your friend that he/she is the essential part of this team and you should be able to complete it in three or four turns. Below are some of the questions and the correct answers.
Once you are done, your friend will agree to help you and the Chapter will be completed.
