Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery
Hello everyone, welcome to the Walkthrough for Chapter Twenty-Three of Year Five of our Magical Journey for Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery. In the previous chapter, you pranked several different people in order to appease Peeves. However, despite all your efforts, he didn’t give you the vault portrait. As it turns out, you’ll need to do something much larger before he’ll be willing to give you what you’re looking for.
As usual, you can finish the lessons of the chapter first. Proceed to the Charms Classroom when you are ready.
Unlocking the Pack Charm Lesson requires you to earn a total of nine stars from Charms Classes. Pick the class duration most suitable for your liking and hit the Start to begin.
As usual, focus on 5 cost actions in order to save some energy.
And try to do all of the mini-tasks successfully to gain some extra Empathy points.
Once you obtain all nine stars, head back to the classroom to attend the lesson.
Learning to cast this spell requires earning five stars within three hours. All of the stars are needed to pass, so it is recommended to avoid starting it with an empty energy bar.
In general, you should be able to finish this one with around 55 energy or so, given the fact that there is plenty of 5 cost actions available here.
Once you earn the fifth star, you’ll be tasked with casting the spell. Trace the wand movement on the screen to do so.
For the second lesson, proceed to the Herbology Classroom.
To unlock the Chinese Chomping Cabbage lesson you need to acquire nine stars from Herbology classes. Like before, pick the combination of classes suitable to your playstyle and hit the Start to begin.
Similar to the Charms, these are fairly generous with 5 cost actions, which should save you some energy.
Also, try your best to do all the mini-tasks successfully to gain some additional Empathy points.
When you obtain all nine stars, head back to the Herbology Classroom.
Learning the Chinese Chomping Cabbage requires earning five stars within three hours. As usual, all of those are needed to pass, so it is advised to have full energy before starting.
Do this in a similar manner to any of the other classes and you shouldn’t encounter any problems.
Once you obtain all five stars, you’ll be tasked with fertilizing your plant.
Now that the lessons are out of the way, you can proceed to the Artefact Room to meet with Penny.
Penny will be curious to know why you need the Wit-Sharpening Potion.
You’ll quickly explain it to her before you start brewing the potion.
Doing this requires earning at least one out of five possible stars within an hour.
On average, you’ll need around 35 energy to complete this task, which should easily be doable with a single energy bar. However, if you are looking to save some energy, you might want to earn a couple of stars and then wait for the timer to run out. This way, you’ll save around 20 energy points.
Once you are done, Penny will ask you what are you going to use these potions for. You have two options to respond with. There are some minor dialogue differences, but other than that, this choice significant impact on the story.
Shortly after, you’ll get the task to meet three of your mischievous friends at the Hog’s Head Inn. Proceed there when you are ready.
As you arrive, you’ll be able to interact with some of the characters before continuing.
Unlike Jae and Tonks, Tulip isn’t feeling quite as comfortable in here.
You’ll quickly explain why you asked them to meet you here.
If you completed Grand Pranksters adventure, it will be referenced here.
Sadly, that alone won’t be enough to get the Vault Portrait from Peeves, so you’ll need to come up with a plan.
Luckily, you got some Wit-Sharpening Potions that will help you brainstorm one.
This requires earning one out of five stars within three hours to pass.
You will need around 55-60 energy to obtain all five stars, depending on the actions you do.
Once you are done, you’ll get a nice idea from Tonks.
Luckily, you know just the person that can help you with inventing a spell. Proceed to the Clocktower Courtyard to meet Badeea.
When you arrive, you can check out what some of your friends have to say by tapping on the speech bubbles above them.
Upon greeting Badeea, she’ll ask if you are here to watch her paint. You can tell her you are, or you can be direct and say why you need her help. There are some minor dialogue differences, but each choice will eventually end up with the same outcome.
After talking for a while, she’ll tell you that she’s trying to invent a Star Shower Spell, which is pretty much an ideal spell for creating grand mischief.
Sadly, she’s having some hardship with this one. Her spell can only make the stars twinkle.
You’ll then get to discuss this with her and try to figure out why the spell isn’t working. To do that, you need to obtain at least one out of five stars within three hours.
Despite only needing one star to pass, it is recommended to fully complete this task since there is a waiting period afterward.
Once you are done, you’ll decide to investigate the matter further while Badeea continues painting.
She will suggest that you start with the Restricted Section of the Library.
As mentioned before, there is a waiting period of three hours before you can proceed to the next task.
Once you are able to continue, head to the Library to meet Rowan.
When you get there, you’ll witness a funny scene involving your friend and Madam Pince.
Shortly after, she will run off and the two of you will be free to check the Restricted Section.
Once you get in there, Rowan will ask why is it necessary to search that place. You have two options to respond with and both will lead to the same outcome but with some minor dialogue differences.
You’ll then get to research spell creation. To do this task, you need to earn at least one out of five possible stars within eight hours.
On average, you’ll need around 100 energy to complete this, which shouldn’t be too hard to do within the time limit.
Sadly, when you are done, you’ll realize there is nothing in the Restricted Section that could help you.
Which means you’ll have to look elsewhere.
Proceed to the Charms Classroom when you are ready. If you are looking to save some energy, it is recommended to go there immediately.
Upon arriving, Bill will tell you that Madam Rakepick is getting impatient and wants to know if you’ve made any progress with the vault portrait. There are three options to choose from. There is no immediate impact on the story, but it is somewhat advised to pick the first option.
Shortly after that, Professor Flitwick will arrive and greet both of you.
After explaining the situation to him, he’ll be more than willing to help you.
Practicing casting spells is a task which requires earning at least one out of five stars within three hours.
If you got here right after you completed the previous task, it is advised to earn a single star and then wait for the timer to expire. This way, you can save some energy and the only downside is missing out some coins and a bit of experience.
Sadly, this will not yield any good results.
Luckily, Bill will give you a useful piece of advice.
For the next task, proceed to the Potions Classroom to meet Merula.
She will be slightly annoyed that you invited her here and will want to know the reason for it. You have three options to respond with. If you fancy Merula or consider her your friend, it is recommended to pick the third option. Otherwise, feel free to choose whichever other option you prefer.
Shortly after, Professor Snape will arrive and he’ll be curious to know why are you in his classroom. He’ll even ask Merula if you are disturbing her.
Thankfully, she won’t get you in trouble. In fact, she’ll tell him the reason why you’re here.
Snape will ask why are you seeking his aid regarding the spell inventions. You can choose to answer yourself or let Merula do the talking. There will be some dialogue differences, but the overall outcome won’t be affected.
After talking for a while, he’ll agree to tell you more about spell invention. This task requires earning five stars within three hours with only one star being needed to pass.
There should be a fair number of 5 cost actions available, which will make this task easier to complete. Also, it is highly recommended to earn all of the stars since there is a waiting period afterward.
Once you are done, Snape will explain what’s wrong with the spell.
You’ll thank the Professor before leaving the classroom.
Before you can meet with Badeea and discuss the spell, you’ll have to wait three hours or use some gems to speed things up.
Once you are able to continue, head to the Training Grounds to meet her.
Upon arriving, you’ll notice the speech bubbles above some of your friends. Tap on those if you are interested to find out what they have to say to you.
Charlie will confront you about the prank you pulled on him in the previous chapter.
However, after he hears your apology, he’ll be willing to forgive you.
You’ll tell Badeea that you’ll have to come up with a new incantation for the Star Shower Spell.
This exactly is your next task. To complete it, you need to obtain five stars within eight hours. Passing, on the other hand, only requires one star.
There are quite a few 5 cost actions available here, so make sure to do them whenever they’re available in order to save some energy.
Once you’re done, you’ll call Charlie and ask him to tell you more about his showers.
This request will definitely sound weird to both him and Badeea.
However, once he tells you about it, you’ll get a good replacement word for the incantation.
After a couple of failed attempts, Badeea will come up with a correct incantation.
After trying it out, the stars on the painting will start raining down.
You’ll praise Badeea for her brilliant incantation.
Not long after that, the chapter will come to an end. Hit the Collect button to claim your rewards.
Now you have a perfect spell for creating a mischief masterpiece. But what will happen once you cast it on Hogwarts? Will it be good enough to please Peeves? Find out in the next chapter of this thrilling adventure!
