Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery
Hello everyone, are you excited for Chapter Five of Year Five of our Magical Journey Walkthrough for Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery? Last time, you met Badeea Ali, Fifth-Year Ravenclaw who is perhaps one of the most gifted Hogwarts students. She has a particular knack for art which you firsthand noticed during your meeting. She gave you an important piece of advice – sometimes, if you do the things in the opposite way, you can get quite interesting results. Following this, you were able to leave detention early, convince Merula to help you and you even got Filch to tell you the information related to Marauder’s Map. Peeves, however, wasn’t so cooperative, so you had to seek Professor Snape and ask him about it. Sadly, the sheer mention of the Marauders infuriated him and he refused to discuss the subject. He did, however, reveal that Penny is on a road to self-destruction and it is only a matter of time before she gets consumed by grief. It’s up to you to stop her from doing that before it’s too late.
Now, you can kick things off by doing the lessons part of the chapter. Proceed to the Transfiguration Classroom when you are ready.
To unlock Switch: Feather Duster & Ferret Lesson you need nine stars from Transfiguration Classes. As usual, there are many different ways to achieve this, so just pick the one that suits you the most and hit the Start button to begin.
Try to do the high-cost actions whenever you see them available in order to save some energy and finish the class faster.
Also, pay attention to the mini-tasks you’ll get after earning stars. Completing each of those will grant you ten Knowledge points.
When you obtain nine stars, the lesson will be unlocked. Head back to the classroom to attend it.
To learn how to transfigure Ferret to Feather Duster you need to earn five stars within three hours. All of the stars are needed to pass, so it is highly recommended to have full energy before starting this lesson.
Do this just like the previous classes and you shouldn’t encounter any problems.
Once you obtain the fifth star, you’ll be tasked with casting the spell. Trace the wand movement on the screen to perform this.
One down, one to go. Hit the GO button and proceed to the History of Magic Classroom for your second lesson of the chapter.
To unlock the Giant Wars Lesson, you need to acquire a total of nine stars from History of Magic Classes. Choose the class combination that fits your playstyle and hit the Start button to begin.
There isn’t much of a difference between these and any other classes – simply tap on various glowing objects to complete actions and fill up the star meter.
And as always, mini-tasks can provide you with some nice additional attribute points as long as you successfully complete them.
Upon obtaining all nine stars, the lesson will be unlocked so you should return to the classroom to attend it.
Completing Giant Wars Lesson requires you to earn five stars within eight hours. All of the stars are needed to pass so you want to avoid starting it with an empty energy bar.
Do this just like the previous classes and you won’t have any trouble with it.
When you are done, hit the Collect button to claim your rewards.
Now that you finished the lessons, you can head to the Grand Staircase to meet Penny and proceed with the story.
Upon arriving, you’ll notice that Penny is feeling very depressed about the whole situation with her sister.
Now it’s up to you to comfort your friend. This task requires you to earn five stars within one hour. Since only one is needed to pass, it should be fairly easy to do this.
All five stars should be obtainable with approximately thirty energy, so one bar should be more than enough to complete the task.
She’ll feel a bit better after you’re done, but sadly, she can’t stop worrying.
However, she has come up something that could help and wants you to meet her in the Forest Grove in three hours. If you don’t want to wait, you can always use some gems and speed things up.
When the waiting time is over, proceed to the Forbidden Forest to meet her.
You’ll find out that she is searching for a Unicorn Horn. Apparently, she wants to use it as an ingredient for some mixture that could make her feel better. Hopefully, you’ll be able to find one in the forest.
And in order to search, you’ll need to shed some light on this dark, gloomy place. Trace the wand movement on the screen to cast Lumos.
Searching for the horn is a three-hour long task which requires you to obtain at least one out of five stars to pass.
Most of the actions here have low cost, but one tied to the bush on the lower-right part of the screen can contain one with the cost of five energy, so do it whenever it is available to complete the task faster.
Once you finish this, you’ll need to go to the Transfiguration Classroom to search for the next ingredient.
Penny needs some Porcupine Quills from here. Sadly, there aren’t any left in the classroom, but thankfully, you have Sickleworth with you, and he might be able to find a pin cushion that you could later change into a porcupine.
Searching the classroom requires you to earn five stars within three hours. Only one star is needed to pass, so it shouldn’t be too difficult.
During this task, you want to check the table on the left side of the screen since it will often have the high-cost action tied to it.
When you are done, you’ll find the pin cushion. All that’s left is to untransfigure it back into a porcupine.
The spell will work and Penny will be very happy to see that.
Your next task involves getting some Moonstone. Your best bet would be asking Jae to get it for you, but it will take some time for him to procure it. Three hours to be exact.
When the waiting time is over, head to the Kitchens to meet Jae.
Upon arriving, you’ll be able to interact with some of the House-Elves by tapping on the speech bubbles above them.
Luckily, Jae managed to obtain the moonstone, but he’s unable to give it to you until the end of detention.
Serving it requires you to earn five stars within three hours. As usual, only one star is needed to pass.
Unlike the previous tasks, this one has a fair amount of high-cost actions, so you should be able to finish it with about fifty-five energy or so.
When you are done, Jael will ask why are you helping Penny. You have three options to choose from. This is an IMPORTANT choice! If by any chance, you like Penny more than a friend and want to possibly romance her in the future, you’ll want to select the second option. It requires you to have level nine friendship with her, which should easily be obtainable by now. However, if this is not the case, or if you simply want to pursue some other romantic interest in the future, you should select one of the other options. It is not yet clear if this choice will influence your chances with some other romances, but if you do like Penny, you should pick the second option. Also, this is available for both genders, so you shouldn’t have to worry about that.
Your next task involves meeting Penny in the Herbology Class. Hit the GO button and proceed there when you are ready.
Upon arriving, you’ll notice the speech bubbles above some of the characters. Tap on those if you want to see what they have to say.
Penny will tell you that the last ingredient she needs is a Syrup of Hellebore. Thankfully, that is the subject of today’s class.
As always, you’ll be quick to offer your help. Penny will then ask you about that.
This is where the previous choice will come into play. If you told Jae that you fancy Penny, your character will confess their feelings for her. This will struck her as a surprise, but since she is too concerned about the well-being of her sister, she can hardly think of anything else. She will, however, promise to talk about it more once Beatrice is safe. In case you didn’t tell Jae you fancy her, you’ll tell her that you consider her a friend, and she’ll be glad to have someone as nice as you by her side.
Shortly after, the class will begin. To complete it, you need to obtain one out of five stars within eight hours.
There are very few actions with the high cost here. The only one available is the one tied to Professor Sprout, so make sure to do it at every opportunity. Generally, you’ll need close to one hundred energy to get all five stars.
After you’re done, Penny will need some time to make preparations for brewing the potion. Eight hours to be exact. If you don’t want to wait, you can spend some gems and remove the waiting time entirely.
Once the waiting period is over, proceed to the Artefact Room for your next task.
When you get there, Penny will finally tell you what she’s planning to brew.
To make the Draught of Peace, you need to earn five stars within three hours. Since all of those are needed to pass, it is highly recommended to have full energy before starting the task.
You’ll need between 55-60 energy to complete this task, which should equate to one and a half energy bar. As long as you weren’t completely out of energy when you started, you should easily be able to finish the task.
After you are done, she will be unsure if drinking the potion would be a good idea. You can choose to advise her against it if your friendship with her is level ten. This is another important choice. If you told Penny you like her, you definitely want to go with the second option. Otherwise, you can pick either choice.
Shortly after, the chapter will come to an end. Hit the Collect button to get your rewards.
That was a nice chapter. You got to spend a lot of time with Penny and help her overcome anxiety. Hopefully, this will prevent her from sinking into depression and self-destruction. But what about Beatrice? What could you do to help her? Will you manage to find some new leads on the Cursed Vaults? Find out in the next chapter.
Thank you for reading.
