Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery
Hello everyone, welcome to Chapter Nine of Year Five of our Magical Journey Walkthrough for Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery. Last time, you asked Jae if he could provide you with some information about Mundungus Fletcher. Afterward, you attended the Defence Against the Dark Arts class during which you faced a Boggart and demonstrated to the entire class how to deal with one. Once the class was over, Madam Rakepick decided to put you through the series of tests in order to have you prepared for the trip to Knockturn Alley. Thankfully, you managed to pass all of her tests and are almost ready for another adventure.
So, let’s start things off in a usual manner, by doing the lessons part of the chapter first. When you are ready, proceed to the Potions Classroom.
Unlocking the Deflating Draught lesson requires you to obtain a total of nine stars from the Potions Class. There are many different ways to achieve this, so choose a combination of classes suitable to your liking and hit the Start button to begin.
As for the classes, do them in the usual fashion – tap on the glowing objects – complete actions – fill up the star meter – earn stars.
Each star you obtain will give you a mini-task. Do it successfully to earn ten Knowledge points.
Repeat this until you have all the stars needed to unlock the lesson. Once you do, head back to the Potion Classroom.
Learning to brew the Deflating Draught is a three-hour task with the passing requirement of five stars. Because of this, you want to avoid starting it with an empty energy bar.
As for the lesson, do it similarly to the previous classes and you shouldn’t encounter any problems.
Once you get all five stars, wave your wand over the cauldron to finish the potion.
Once you’re done, proceed to the Herbology Classroom for the second lesson of the chapter.
In order to unlock the Fanged Geranium lesson, you need to obtain a total of nine stars from the Herbology Classes. As always, pick the class combination that suits your playstyle and hit the Start button to begin.
In these classes, there should be a fair amount of high-cost actions, which will make things easier.
And it goes without saying – complete as many of the mini-tasks as possible to gain some extra Empathy points.
When you obtain enough stars to unlock the lesson, head back to the classroom to attend it.
To pass the Fanged Geranium lesson, you need to earn five stars within three hours.
Follow the same steps you did in the classes you took previously and you’ll be done quickly and easily.
Once you earn the fifth star, you’ll be tasked with fertilizing your plant. Trace the path on the screen to do so.
Now that you’ve completed the lessons, you can resume the story. Hit the GO button and proceed to Defence Against the Dark Arts classroom to meet Madam Rakepick.
Upon arriving, you’ll notice the speech bubbles above some of your classmates. Tap on those if you are interested to see what they have to say.
Before you can discuss the Floo Powder with the Professor, you have to attend the class. This is an hour-long task which requires you to earn at least one out of five possible stars to pass.
On average, you’ll need about thirty energy to fully complete this task. This should easily be achievable with a single energy bar.
When you are done, Madam Rakepick will suggest that you bring someone along with you to Knockturn Alley. You can choose between Jae, Merula, and Bill. Keep in mind that Jae is locked behind level three friendship and for Bill, you need friendship level eight. Unlike them, you don’t have any special requirement to take Merula along. Choose the one you deem the most appropriate for this adventure and bear in mind that it will influence some aspect of the story.
Once you’ve made up your mind, hit the GO button and proceed to the Three Broomsticks to meet the friend you chose.
Upon entering Madam Rosmerta’s establishment, you’ll be able to interact with her and a couple of other characters before proceeding to meet your friend.
No matter who you chose, you’ll have to do some convincing before they’re willing to join you on your adventure.
The task window will display the recommended attribute levels as well as the gold cost.
This behaves pretty similarly to the Drink Butterbeer mini-game. You’ll simply have to pick the options that will reassure your friend and explain that everything will be fine. At this point, your attribute levels should be sufficiently high to complete this without too much trouble. Below are some of the questions and answers for recruiting Merula.
Once you are done, you’ll receive a significant friendship experience – around 320 points or so, with the friend of your choice, or in case you picked Merula, you’ll be given 300 experience points.
For the next task, you should head to the Training Grounds to meet your friends.
Apparently, Bill is planning to teach the three of you a new spell that could come in handy on your curse-breaking adventures.
It is the Stunning Spell, Stupefy. It will definitely be useful in some sticky situations.
To learn it, you need to acquire at least one out of five stars within three hours.
This is fairly similar to any other story task, so treat it in the same manner and you shouldn’t have any problems.
When you are done, you’ll be tasked with casting the Stunning Spell on Bill. Trace the wand movement on the screen to do so.
What follows is a pretty funny scene involving Bill getting knocked off his feet, literally. At least Merula will have a blast laughing at him.
Your final task of the chapter involves learning how to use the Floo Powder. When you are ready, proceed to the Great Hall to meet Professor Rakepick.
Upon arriving, you’ll notice the speech bubbles above some characters. Tap on those if you are interested to find out what they have to say.
And finally, after a long wait, Madam Rakepick will decide to teach you how to use Floo Powder.
Learning to use Floo Powder is a task which requires you to earn five stars within eight hours. Only one star is needed to pass, so overall it isn’t too difficult.
Sadly, there aren’t many high-cost actions available for this task, so you’ll need to spend around one hundred energy to earn all five stars.
Once you’re done, you’ll learn that the fireplace within Hogwarts that is surely connected to the Floo Network is within the Headmaster’s Office. Madam Rakepick will ask you to meet her there.
This will also mark the end of the chapter. Hit the Collect button to claim your rewards.
Finally, after all the preparation, you are ready to head to Knockturn Alley. But will you be able to get there safely? And will you find Mundungus Fletcher? More importantly, will he be willing to cooperate and reveal the Cursed Vault location to you? Find out in the next part of this thrilling adventure!
Thank you for reading. Until next time.
