Who is Ben Copper?
Ben Copper is a Gryffindor in the same year as the player character. He is a muggleborn who has some self-esteem issues, as a result he is constantly bullied by Merula and her friends. You will be able to become friends with Ben early in year 1.
Upon becoming friends you will be able to share a meal in the Great Hall, drink Butterbeer at the Three Broomsticks in Hogsmeade, and play Gobstones in the Hogwarts Courtyard. Each activity is a series of four questions which will reward up to three diamonds that translate into experience for Ben’s friendship level. The experience required and reward for each level are as follows:
2 – 20 experience, 5 gem reward
3 – 35 experience, 5 gem reward
4 – 35 experience, 5 energy reward
5 – 60 experience, 5 energy reward
6 – 70 experience, 10 energy reward
7 – 80 experience, 10 energy reward
8 – 100 experience, 15 energy reward
9 – 100 experience, 15 energy reward
10 -120 experience, Special Clothing Reward: Your partially frozen robe from the Ice Vaults.
Now we will go over the answers to every question Ben Copper can potentially ask during the activities you complete with him. Answers in green are worth 10 points while answers in yellow are worth 5. Some questions will have two 10 point answers. You should always pick a green (10 point) answer.
