Hogwarts Mystery Class Guide

There are multiple classes available in Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery with each class rewarding a specific attribute.  Flying and Care of Magical Creatures will reward Courage; Herbology and Charms reward Empathy; while Potions and Transfiguration will reward Knowledge.  In Year 5 you will unlock two new classes: Defense Against the Dark Arts which rewards courage and History of Magic which rewards knowledge.

Certain classes will be required to progress the main storyline, but generally you will be free to attend whichever classes you see fit.  Our Hogwarts Mystery Class Guide will help you efficiently complete each class.

You are most likely here to find the answers to the question which can potential be asked during your Hogwarts Mystery classes.  Questions asked by the professor will generally be based on the class they teach while questions asked by fellow students tend to be more random.  We’ll cover the answers to every general question below.  Each question will have 3 multiple choice responses with only 1 being correct, answers below will be marked in green.  Check out the specific class guides for questions from the professors.

When first selecting a class you will have to option to pick a 1 hour, 3 hour, or 8 hour duration.

You will then use energy by tapping on various activities within the class to fill up a progress bar that is separated into breakpoints that reward a star.

Each class requires only 1 star to complete, but will have additional bonus stars based on duration: 2 total stars (1 bonus) for a 1 hour class, 3 total stars for a 3 hour class, and 5 total stars for an 8 hour class.

Upon spending enough energy to obtain a star you will first be given an option to choose a reward of 5-40 points towards one of the three attributes, 25-1000 gold, or occasionally 1-9 gems or energy.  Based on prices in the shop, each attribute point is worth around 8 gold.  The reward choice priority should be as follows:

  1. 1000 Gold
  2. 40 attribute points
  3. 200 Gold
  4. 15 attributes
  5. 10 attributes
  6. 50 Gold
  7. 5 attributes
  8. 25 Gold

With the Magizoology update up to 10 pet food can be rewarded.

Energy and Gem rewards are fairly subjective, I will not select either unless the attribute and gold rewards are extremely low.  Energy is almost never worth taking unless you are desperate to finish an activity quickly.

After this choice you will be given one of three minigames:

Stop an expanding circle within the designated area.

Answer a question from a teacher or fellow student.  Check out our specific class guides for answers to each question.

Trace a shape with your finger.

Successfully completing the minigame will reward 10 attribute points specific to the class being attended (ex. charms will always reward 10 empathy).

Finally after the time expires or all stars are filled you will receive a reward of attribute points for each star obtained:

  • 1 hour class rewards 2 points per star for a total of 4 attribute points.
  • 3 hour class rewards 5 attribute points for the first 2 stars and 4 points for the final star for a total of 14 attribute points
  • 8 hour class nets you 10 attribute points per star for a total of 50 attribute points.

The duration of the class also effects the amount of energy required per star.  This may not be 100% accurate, but these are the values we’ve seen for each class duration:

  • 1 hour class requires 13+ energy per star
  • 3 hour class requires 15+ energy per star
  • 8 hour class requires 16+ energy per star

The amount of energy required for each star is based on the activites you complete in the class.  The longer the activity the more progress you will get.  For example a single 5 energy activity will reward more overall class progress than spending 5 energy on multiple shorter activities.

If you’re looking to complete an event as quickly as possible spamming 1 hour classes will be the quickest way to receive stars.  However the 8 hour class is the most efficient in gaining power (attribute points) for your character.
