Hello everyone, welcome to our Walkthrough for Chapter Eleven of Year Six of Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery. Last time, you met with Chester and explained the situation to him. While he couldn’t directly help you, he told you that it is possible to sneak into the Ministry of Magic using an Invisibility Cloak. After talking to Jae, you learned that one of his business acquaintances could probably sell you one of those cloaks. However, he won’t sell it to you unless you give him a Love Potion. Luckily, according to Andre, Penny should be able to brew it, so you should seek out her help… as soon as you’re done with the lessons. The first one for this chapter is Herbology, so head there when you are ready.
To unlock the Bouncing Bulb lesson, you need to acquire nine stars from Herbology classes. As usual, pick the class duration you prefer and hit the Start to begin.
Luckily, 5-cost actions are plentiful in Herbology, which should make things a bit easier for you.
As for the mini-tasks, do as many of these successfully as you can to gain some extra Empathy points.
Return to the classroom once you unlock the lesson.
Passing the Bouncing Bulb lesson requires earning five stars within three hours.
In total, you will need around 60-65 energy to fully complete this lesson, which should be relatively easy to accomplish, as long as you didn’t start it with an empty energy bar.
Also, fertilizing Bouncing Bulb is remarkably funny.
For the second lesson, you should proceed to the Divination Classroom.
Unlocking the Crystal-gazing lesson requires earning nine stars from Divination classes. Choose the class duration suitable to your liking and hit the Start to begin.
Similar to Herbology, Divination classes also have a lot of 5-cost actions.
Completing the mini-tasks will grant you some additional Empathy points.
When you obtain enough stars to unlock the lesson, return to the classroom to attend it.
Learning the Crystal Gazing requires earning five stars within eight hours.
The major things that differentiate this lesson from the rest of the regular classes are the passing requirements and some of the mini tasks.
When you are done, head to the Three Broomsticks to meet Penny.
Upon arriving, you will be able to interact with some of the characters before continuing.
As it turns out, Beatrice is still avoiding Penny.
You’ll then fill her in on the recent events.
You will also tell her why you need her help.
Penny will be shocked to hear that.
If you completed Crushed Side Quest, she will remind you of the choice you made during it.
You’ll explain everything with a bit more details
Needless to say, she will find your plan extremely reckless and dangerous.
In other words, you will have to convince her.
To persuade Penny, you need to earn three diamonds within 7 turns.
This acts similarly to drinking butterbeer with friends. Simply pick the friendly answers and you shouldn’t have any problems. Below are some of the questions and answers to them.
When you are done, Penny will agree to help you.
However, she will need you to collect some of the ingredients.
Luckily, you should be able to get some rose thorns from the greenhouses, but you will have to wait three hours before you can continue.
Once the waiting time is over, head to the greenhouses to get rose thorns.
Much to your surprise, you will notice two of your friends as you arrive.
It looks like Rowan is teaching Barnaby.
You’ll quickly tell them you just want to get some rose thorns.
This will spark Rowan’s curiosity.
You’ll somehow manage to dodge his question.
After talking for a bit, you will learn that Rowan is keen on becoming a Head Boy in his seventh year.
Barnaby will sure find him ‘suitable’ for the role.
Not long after that, you will convince them to help you gather some rose thorns. Doing so requires earning at least one out of five stars within three hours.
To fully complete this task, you will need around 60-65 energy, depending on the tasks you do.
Once you are done collecting the rose thorns, you’ll decide to head to the Kitchens to get some peppermint.
Since you didn’t really answer his question, Rowan will choose to accompany you.
Proceed to the Kitchens for your next task.
Once you get there, you will be able to interact with some House-Elves before continuing.
Pitts will be very surprised to see you again.
Rowan will be the one answering his question.
This will make Pitts even more curious.
You’ll then ask if he could spare some peppermint.
While he’ll initially object, Jae will quickly propose a solution that would be beneficial for everyone.
Obviously, you’ll gladly agree to this.
With that being said, your ‘unscheduled’ work in the Kitchens will begin. This requires earning five stars within three hours. One star is needed to pass.
There are plenty of 5-cost actions available here, which will make it much easier to complete the task.
When you are done, Pitts will thank you and Rowan for your help, and he’ll allow you to take some peppermint.
Jae will assume that you need peppermint for the Love Potion.
And Rowan will finally realize why you’re gathering the ingredients.
You will explain everything to him, except for the part related to sneaking into the Ministry of Magic.
Jae will suggest seeking one of his business associates for the last two ingredients on the list.
Since the alternative would involve stealing from Snape, you will gladly agree to Jae’s proposition.
Rowan will be eager to come with you. Jae will say it’s not a good idea since Rowan tends to ask a lot of questions, and that could get him in trouble. Still, it is ultimately your choice whether or not you want Rowan to accompany you there. The following part of the chapter will be different, based on this choice. If you care about Rowan, it is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED to bring him along since this choice will more than likely be referenced in the future.
Regardless of your choice, Jae will tell you he’ll arrange everything.
There will be a waiting period of one hour before you can continue. Since your energy is likely low after completing the previous task, it is recommended to wait until this timer expires.
When the waiting time is over, head to the Hogsmeade Train Station.
The following section will feature Rowan accompanying you. If you chose to go alone, you will encounter Bilton once you arrive. The story and the dialogues will be different, but the outcome of the task will be the same.
Rowan will point out the interesting detail about the nearby clock.
Shortly after, you will tell him why you need an Invisibility Cloak.
He’ll be shocked to hear that. You have three options to reply with. These won’t influence the story, so feel free to pick whichever option you prefer.
He will then admit that he’s worried about you, and he’ll ask if you think you changed after what happened in the Portrait Vault. This choice will affect the following dialogue, but it won’t have any significant effect on the story, so feel free to take your pick.
Not long after that, you will realize that the train is running late, so Rowan will suggest talking a bit to catch up.
Talking to Rowan requires earning five stars within an hour. Three stars are needed to pass.
It will take you 40 energy or so to fully complete this task, which should easily be doable with a single energy bar.
When you are done, Rowan will ask if you ever cast the Tickling Charm on Merula during your first duel.
Whether you did so or not, it will be referenced here.
Moments later, Rowan will cast the Tickling Charm on you.
Needless to say, you will start laughing uncontrollably.
You’ll decide to reply in kind. Trace the wand movement on the screen to cast Rictusempra.
This will cause Rowan to literally roll on the floor laughing.
After helping him get up, you will cast Finite Incantatem to remove the effects of the Tickling Charm.
The train will arrive shortly, and you’ll decide to meet up with the witch and get the ingredients.
Next, you should meet with Penny to brew a Love Potion. However, there’s a waiting period of four hours before you can continue. Like before, it is recommended to wait until this timer runs out and let your energy replenish in the meantime.
Once you’re able to continue, head to the Artefact Room to meet Penny.
After presenting all of the ingredients to your Hufflepuff friend, you will notice that she’s acting oddly.
Apparently, her mind is quite preoccupied at the moment.
You’ll decide to hear her out while brewing the potion.
To brew a Love Potion, you need to earn five stars within three hours. One star is needed to pass.
There are 5-cost actions tied to Penny, your character, and the cauldron, which should make this task a bit easier to complete.
When you are done, you’ll learn that Penny decided to give her sister some space.
However, she isn’t quite certain if that’s the right decision, so she’ll ask for your opinion. If you care about Penny, it is recommended to pick the first option. That will put her mind at ease, and she’ll feel a lot better knowing you support her.
Moments later, Andre will enter the room and ask if the Love Potion is ready.
It seems that Alistair is getting impatient, which is why you need to be quick if you want to get that Invisibility Cloak.
Thankfully, the potion brewing process was a success, and you can soon exchange it for the cloak.
That will mark the end of Chapter 11 of Year 6. Hit the Collect button to claim your rewards.
Will Alistair honor the deal and give you the Invisibility Cloak in exchange for the Love Potion? Or will he go down on his word and try to trick you again? Find out in the next chapter of Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery.
Thank you for reading.
