Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery Magizoology Guide

hogwarts mystery magizoology guide banner

Magizoology first becomes available upon completion of a side quest from Hagrid.  This unlock a new zone, many new magical creatures to adopt, pet food that can be rewarded after each class, and a new Red Notebook currency.  As magical creatures are cared for and bonded with players will gain Magizoology levels, higher levels will unlock new creatures to adopt.

The Magical Creature Reserve

The Magical Creature Reserve is a new fast travel area which is separated into 6 unique zones: Grasslands, Forest, Dark Forest, Lake, Rocky Mountains, and Volcanic Pasture.  Each of these zones is home to unique magical creatures.  For instance Porlocks live in the Grasslands while Fairies live in the Forest.  Zones will become unlocked as new creatures are discovered within them.

New Currency

Notebook currencies are used to "adopt" new magical creatures.  They are rewarded upon completion of special Magizoology quests and specific Hogwarts Mystery events.  These are fairly difficult to come by so make sure you're completing events as efficiently as possible.  Red Notebooks are used to adopt every creature while some of the newer releases require some additional Blue Notebooks.

Creature Food

Food can be obtained from the "Search for Creature Food" activity in the Hogwarts Corridor located at the end of the Lower Floor - West zone.  This is a 3 hour activity which rewards a total of 8 creature food (4 for the first star and two for each of the two bonus stars).  This activity is almost never worth doing as it rewards nothing other than food. 

The alternative method of getting Creature Food is to simply complete normal classes.  Each time a star is completed in any class 2-10 creature food can potentially be available as a reward.  I've banked hundreds of Creature Food from just casually completing classes and selecting food when it doesn't compete with a massive reward like 1000 Gold or 40 Attributes.

Obviously Creature Food is used to feed your magical creatures.  Creatures gain trust levels based on the amount of food fed to them:
1 food = 3 experience
2 food = 7 experience
3 food = 12 experience

Three is the maximum that can be fed at once.  As there is a 3+ hour delay on feeding pets, feeding the maximum amount of food (three) each time will result in the fastest experience gain.  Your character will also receive Magizoology experience each time a pet is fed.

A recent update has added the ability to feed maximum level adopted pets.  This will give a similar reward to completing a star during a standard class however the reward pool is improved and you may occasionally be offered the chance to select a brown notebook for adopting cosmetic pets.  This feeding is on a 6 hour cooldown timer, so you might want to start picking up some more pet food from classes.

Magical Creatures
