Hello everyone, welcome to Chapter Seven of Year Five of our Magical Journey Walkthrough for Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery. Last time, you talked to all the House Ghosts of Hogwarts in hope of finding out where the Marauder’s Map is. In the end, you learned that Jacob had a friend called Duncan Ashe who died during his pursuit of the Cursed Vaults and became a ghost. After finding him in the Prefect’s Bathroom, you quickly discovered that he is infuriated even by mentioning Jacob’s name. He pretty much refused to tell you what happened, so you’ll have to figure out a way to find out why he hates your brother so much.

To start things off, you can head to the Herbology classroom for your first lesson of the chapter.

Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery Walkthrough Year 5 Chapter 7

To unlock the Screechsnap Lesson, you need to earn a total of nine stars from Herbology Classes. Choose a class combination that suits your playstyle and hit the Start button to begin.

Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery Walkthrough Year 5 Chapter 7

As for the classes themselves, follow the standard route – tap on the glowing objects to complete actions and fill up the star meter. This will, eventually, earn you stars necessary for unlocking the lesson.

Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery Walkthrough Year 5 Chapter 7

Every time you acquire a star, you’ll be given a mini-task. Complete it successfully and you’ll be granted ten Empathy points.

Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery Walkthrough Year 5 Chapter 7

Once you earn all the required stars, you can head back to the classroom to attend the lesson.

Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery Walkthrough Year 5 Chapter 7

To complete the Screechsnap lesson, you need to obtain five stars within three hours. All the stars are necessary in order to pass, so it is recommended to be at full energy before you begin.

Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery Walkthrough Year 5 Chapter 7

Whenever you get the chance, do the high-cost actions to optimize the energy usage.

Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery Walkthrough Year 5 Chapter 7

And like before, try to do all the mini-tasks to gain some additional Empathy points.

For the second lesson of the chapter, proceed to the Defence Against the Dark Arts classroom.

Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery Walkthrough Year 5 Chapter 7

To unlock the Pixie lesson, you need to acquire nine stars from Defence Against the Dark Arts classes. As usual, pick the class combination that suits you best and hit the Start button to begin.

Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery Walkthrough Year 5 Chapter 7

In general, there is a nice amount of high-cost actions for these classes, so you should be able to do them relatively quickly.

Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery Walkthrough Year 5 Chapter 7

And unlike most of the other ones, these classes contain some interesting new mini-tasks.

Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery Walkthrough Year 5 Chapter 7

Once you unlock the lesson, head back to the classroom to attend it.

Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery Walkthrough Year 5 Chapter 7

Learning how to deal with Pixies is a three-hour task with the passing requirement of five stars.

Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery Walkthrough Year 5 Chapter 7

On average, you’ll need about one and a half energy bar to finish the lesson, so as long as you started with full energy, you’ll easily be able to achieve this.

Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery Walkthrough Year 5 Chapter 7

Upon obtaining the fifth star, you’ll be tasked with casting the Knockback Jinx on one of the Pixies.

Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery Walkthrough Year 5 Chapter 7

Now that you’ve completed the lessons, you can head to Hagrid’s hut to ask him about Duncan Ashe.

Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery Walkthrough Year 5 Chapter 7

When you arrive, you’ll be able to interact with some adorable creatures and Fang by tapping on the speech bubbles above them.

Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery Walkthrough Year 5 Chapter 7

After that, you’ll be able to ask Hagrid one question. You have three options to choose from, but eventually, all will lead to the same outcome, so you can feel free to pick the option you want.

Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery Walkthrough Year 5 Chapter 7

You’ll then get the task to discuss Duncan Ashe with Hagrid. This is an hour-long task which requires you to earn at least one of the five stars to pass.

Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery Walkthrough Year 5 Chapter 7

On average, you’ll need around thirty energy to earn all five stars, which equates to a bit less than one energy bar.

Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery Walkthrough Year 5 Chapter 7

From that conversation, you’ll learn that Duncan was a very mischievous student and that both he and Jacob were looking for new brooms after their old ones got broken.

Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery Walkthrough Year 5 Chapter 7

After saying goodbye to Hagrid and the other creatures, you’ll get the task to talk to Madam Hooch. Hit the GO button and proceed to the Training Grounds.

After saying goodbye to Hagrid and the other creatures, you’ll get the task to talk to Madam Hooch. Hit the GO button and proceed to the Training Grounds.

Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery Walkthrough Year 5 Chapter 7

After mentioning Duncan Ashe to Madam Hooch, she’ll ask if you flew a broom into the Forbidden Forest last year. You have two options to respond with, but for the first one, you need a level 24 Courage attribute. In any case, both options will lead to the same outcome, but the second one will have some funny character lines, so you might want to check it out.

Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery Walkthrough Year 5 Chapter 7

Shortly after, the class will start. To complete it, you need to obtain five stars within three hours with one being required to pass.

Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery Walkthrough Year 5 Chapter 7

As with the other tasks, put the focus on the high-cost actions and you’ll be done in no time.

Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery Walkthrough Year 5 Chapter 7

When the class is over, you will learn some interesting information about Duncan.

Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery Walkthrough Year 5 Chapter 7

And apparently, he did visit Madam Hooch once his broom was destroyed. Perhaps the more appropriate word would be annihilated.

Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery Walkthrough Year 5 Chapter 7

She will tell you that Duncan was frequenting Zonko’s and you’ll likely get some answers there. Hit the GO button and head to Hogsmeade when you are ready.

Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery Walkthrough Year 5 Chapter 7

Once you arrive, you’ll notice both Tulip and Tonks standing there. You can check out what they have to say before proceeding with the task.

Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery Walkthrough Year 5 Chapter 7

Shortly after you start the conversation with Bilton, three Fanged Frisbees will emerge from the nearby box.

Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery Walkthrough Year 5 Chapter 7

Your next task will be to deal with those frisbees. You have three hours to do so and earn at least one of five stars to pass.

Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery Walkthrough Year 5 Chapter 7

This is fairly similar to regular story tasks with one little exception. First, you complete actions as normal, focusing on the ones with the high cost.

Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery Walkthrough Year 5 Chapter 7

And second, every time you fill up one-third of the entire star meter, you’ll be tasked with casting the Exploding Charm to destroy one of the frisbees.

Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery Walkthrough Year 5 Chapter 7

Once all three frisbees have been destroyed, you’ll get the opportunity to ask Bilton a question. You have three options to choose from. Each one will eventually lead to you asking him about Duncan, so you might want to consider picking the first or the third option to learn more about Bilton while you’re at it.

Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery Walkthrough Year 5 Chapter 7

He’ll then reveal some interesting information about Duncan and tell you that only three people know what really happened to him.

Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery Walkthrough Year 5 Chapter 7

Since Duncan refuses to speak to you and the Headmaster is absent, the only other option is to search Jacob’s room once again. Hit the GO button and proceed there to meet Merula and Tulip.

Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery Walkthrough Year 5 Chapter 7

Upon your arrival, Tulip will ask if you and Merula are friends now. Keep in mind that this choice will more than likely affect your future relationship with these characters. If you favor Merula, select the first option. The second one will please Tulip and the third one is more of a neutral approach.

Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery Walkthrough Year 5 Chapter 7

Shortly after, you’ll decide to start the search. But before that, cast the Wand-Lighting Charm to illuminate the room.

Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery Walkthrough Year 5 Chapter 7

Searching the room is a three-hour task in which you have to earn at least one out of five stars.

Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery Walkthrough Year 5 Chapter 7

You’ll need around 55-60 energy to complete this task. As long as you didn’t start it with an empty energy bar, you should be fine. Also, pay attention to the actions tied to Merula and Tulip and you’ll witness some funny dialogue lines.

Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery Walkthrough Year 5 Chapter 7

When you finish the task, you’ll discover a note which reveals that Jacob was, in fact, working with R.

Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery Walkthrough Year 5 Chapter 7

The letter also mentioned centaurs, so the next logical step would be to ask Torvus about it. Proceed to the Forest Grove to meet him when you’re ready.

Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery Walkthrough Year 5 Chapter 7

Shortly after arriving there, you’ll ask Torvus about Duncan Ashe.

Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery Walkthrough Year 5 Chapter 7

However, he wasn’t aware at all that Duncan, in fact, is dead.

Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery Walkthrough Year 5 Chapter 7

He’ll then decide to share with you the things he knows about the situation.

Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery Walkthrough Year 5 Chapter 7

Discussing Duncan Ashe is your next task. You have three hours to complete it and earn at least one out of five possible stars.

Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery Walkthrough Year 5 Chapter 7

You’ll need around 55 energy to complete this task. Pay attention to the dialogue lines after completing the actions as some of those are quite interesting.

Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery Walkthrough Year 5 Chapter 7

Once the task is finished, you will sum up the things you learned from Torvus.

Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery Walkthrough Year 5 Chapter 7 Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery Walkthrough Year 5 Chapter 7

In the end, you’ll decide to pay Duncan a visit and see if he’s willing to talk to you.

Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery Walkthrough Year 5 Chapter 7

When you get there, you’ll convince him to hear you out. However, after telling him what you think happened, he’ll burst in laughter. Apparently, there is something wrong with the story. You’ll have three options to guess what’s wrong with it.

Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery Walkthrough Year 5 Chapter 7

Regardless of what you choose, Duncan will decide to tell you what really happened. This is an eight-hour task which requires you to earn five stars. To pass, you only need one, so overall it shouldn’t be too hard.

Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery Walkthrough Year 5 Chapter 7

To earn all five stars, you’ll need approximately one hundred energy, which equates to about three energy bars. Since you have eight hours to complete the task, this shouldn’t be a problem.

Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery Walkthrough Year 5 Chapter 7

When you finish the task, you’ll learn the shocking truth – Jacob didn’t have much of a choice, he had to lie in order to protect those who were dear to him.

Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery Walkthrough Year 5 Chapter 7 Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery Walkthrough Year 5 Chapter 7

Duncan will also reveal some more information to you.

Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery Walkthrough Year 5 Chapter 7

It looks like Jacob didn’t expose R after Duncan died. Instead, he was the one who took the blame and got himself expelled because of that.

Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery Walkthrough Year 5 Chapter 7

Apparently, he went to Knockturn Alley sometime after that and he’s build up quite the reputation there.

Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery Walkthrough Year 5 Chapter 7

Shortly after, Duncan will ask if you believe him. You have two response options.

Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery Walkthrough Year 5 Chapter 7

Regardless of the option you selected, Duncan will tell you that in order to find the next vault, you need to seek Mundungus Fletcher in Knockturn Alley.

Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery Walkthrough Year 5 Chapter 7

With this, the chapter will conclude. Hit the Collect button to claim your rewards.

Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery Walkthrough Year 5 Chapter 7

That was a lot to take in. Finally, you got some solid leads that could get you closer to the next vault. However, Knockturn Alley is a dangerous place. How will you get there? And who could you ask for help regarding that matter? Find out in the next chapter of this thrilling adventure!
