Walkthrough

So, let’s get right to it and continue this amazing adventure. Your first task will be to attend the welcoming ceremony at the Great Hall. You’ll immediately notice that several characters have speech bubbles above them. Tap on those to see what they have to say to you.

Afterward, tap on the exclamation mark to start the conversation with Rowan. Your friend will ask how you spent your summer holidays. You can answer in three different ways.

year 2 chapter 1 1020

Each of those answers will award you with five points in a different attribute, so pick one to your liking. Rowan found descriptions of staircases in Hogwarts that no longer exists. Those staircases are mentioned in cryptic code as “the vanished staircases”.

You will hope that if you find those stairs, you will find a cursed vault, and later your brother. Rowan will agree with you that you could ask Penny and Ben to help you after Dumbledore’s speech.

Shortly after, the Headmaster will hold his welcoming speech. Professor Dumbledore will welcome both first-year and returning students. He will advise everyone to focus on their studies, to make time for their friends, but most importantly, if they see anything odd in the castle, they should report immediately to a professor.

Afterward, you should check on Penny Haywood. Tap on the exclamation mark to proceed.

year 2 chapter 1 1040

After greeting her, you’ll realize that Ben Copper is missing. Apparently, no one knows where he is, not even her. So, your next task will be to ask around the Great Hall if anyone saw Ben.

This task requires you to earn five stars within one hour, but in order to pass you only need one star, so it shouldn’t be too difficult to complete it. When you are ready, hit the Start button to begin.

year 2 chapter 1 1050

As usual, complete actions by tapping on the glowing objects. This will fill up the star meter. It is recommended to pick the actions with 5-cost whenever they are available in order to optimize energy usage.

By the looks of it, not a single person will know where Ben is. Penny will seem quite worried and will ask if you can think of anyone else that you can ask for help. You have two options to respond with – Professor McGonagall or his Prefect.

year 2 chapter 1 1070

It is highly recommended to select the first option for two reasons. First, Professor McGonagall is a very knowledgeable person, and she might know some way to help. Second – this option will reward you with ten Empathy points, so it yields a greater reward compared to the other one. The only downside is that you need to have Empathy attribute at level seven in order to choose this option.

After a bit more talking you’ll decide to check whether the person you chose knows anything that could help. Sadly, there is a three-hour waiting period before you can proceed, so you can either wait a bit or spend some gems/time toffees to speed up the process. In any case, once you’re ready, hit the GO button to proceed to the Courtyard.

year 2 chapter 1 1080

When you get there, you’ll notice that the person you chose is already there. Tap on the exclamation mark to start the conversation.

After a bit of talking, you will be asked if you found anything when you visited the Mysterious Room last year. You can choose to tell about the message on the wall or not. Each choice will award you with five attribute points. The recommended option here is to tell the truth.

year 2 chapter 1 1100

Afterward, the person you chose to meet with will suggest that you look at all the places Ben used to hide at Hogwarts, and hopefully, you might find something related to his disappearance. If you decided to meet with Professor McGonagall, she will ask you to report to her in case you find Ben.

So, the most logical place you could search is the Artefact Room. Ben used to spend a lot of time there, and who knows, there might be some clue there. Tap on the GO button to proceed.

When you arrive, you’ll find that Rowan is there already. Tap on the exclamation mark to continue. You will recall that this is the spot you had your vision, the previous time you were here. Rowan will ask if you are sure about searching the place. You have three response options.

year 2 chapter 1 1130

The first two options will award you with five attribute points. If you, however, pick the third one, you will earn ten Knowledge points, which is the best option here if your knowledge level is seven or higher.

After a bit more talking, you will get the task to search the room. For this one, you need to earn five stars within one hour, but you only need one star to pass. When you are ready, hit the Start button to begin.

year 2 chapter 1 1140

This task is fairly straightforward. Simply complete the actions that require 5 energy when they are available in order to optimize the energy usage.

Once you are done, you’ll find a locked cabinet. In order to open it, you’ll need to use the Unlocking Charm. Trace the path on the screen to cast Alohomora.

year 2 chapter 1 1160

Inside it, you’ll find a message written in some kind of code. Rowan should be able to decode it, but it will take some time. So, for the next task, you can either wait for an hour or use some gems to remove the waiting time.

year 2 chapter 1 1170

Either way, when you are ready, hit the GO button and proceed to your Common Room. Once you are there, you’ll see speech bubbles above some of the students. Tap on them to see what they have to say.

After that, tap on the exclamation mark to start the conversation with Rowan. You’ll learn that your friend successfully decoded the message. It says that the next instruction has been transfigured into a Black Quill, and hidden in the Slytherin Common Room (or Gryffindor Common Room if you are Slytherin or Ravenclaw).

In order to undo that transfiguration, you will need to learn Reparifarge spell. Also, the letter is signed with R, but at this point, you’ll have no clue who that might be. So, you’ll come up with a plan to learn that spell while Rowan figures out a way for you to sneak into the other house’s Common Room.

year 2 chapter 1 1190

For the next task, tap on the GO button and proceed to the Charms Classroom.

The next Charm spell you’ll be learning is Engorgio, but in order to unlock it, you need to earn a total of five stars from Charms Class. The most optimal way for that is to select an eight-hour class. When you are ready, hit the Start button to begin.

year 2 chapter 1 1210

Same as with any other class, complete actions by tapping on the glowing objects in order to fill up the star meter and earn stars. Whenever you can, complete the actions with 5 energy cost, since those will fill up the star meter as if you’ve spent 6 energy.

year 2 chapter 1 1220

Try your best to successfully complete mini-tasks since each of those will award you with ten Empathy points. When you are done, tap on the Collect button to continue.

Engorgio lesson should be unlocked now. Hit the GO button to proceed. Once you are in the Charms Classroom, you will notice that some of the students have something to tell you. Tap on their speech bubbles to see what they have to say.

Afterward, Professor Flitwick will hold a short introduction to the lesson. In order to pass, you need to earn five stars within three hours. It is advised to start at full energy, that way you won’t have trouble completing it in time. When you are ready, hit the Start button to begin.

year 2 chapter 1 1410

Like in all classes, complete actions by tapping on glowing objects in order to fill up the star meter. Also, pay attention to mini-tasks since completing each of those will award you with ten Empathy points.

Once you obtain the fifth star, you’ll be tasked with casting Engorgio. Trace the path on the screen to successfully cast the spell.

year 2 chapter 1 1290

Congratulations! You just learned your first spell for this year. Your next task will be to attend the Transfiguration lesson. Tap on the GO button to proceed. You’ll encounter Merula on the way. She will wonder if you had any luck finding Ben. She will even go as far as to call him a cowardly Mudblood.

You will if she knows anything about Ben, but Merula will respond that she knows more than you and that sometimes when people are missing, they are exactly where they’re supposed to be. She will also say that if you try to uncover things that are happening in the castle, you might get killed. You’ll then be able to choose one of two options.

year 2 chapter 1 1310

Each of those will grant you five points in a different attribute, but no matter the choice, you won’t be able to gain any important information from her. Afterward, proceed to the classroom. When you get there, Professor McGonagall will hold a short introduction for your first Transfiguration class.

After that, she’ll demonstrate the spell you’ll be learning today – Reparifarge. Tapping on the exclamation mark will open the task window. To complete this lesson, you need to earn five stars within three hours. Therefore, it is highly recommended to have full energy prior to starting. When you are ready, hit the Start button to begin.

year 2 chapter 1 1330

This lesson works the same as any other, complete actions, fill up the star meter, and earn stars. Also, try your best to succeed at mini-tasks, since you’ll get ten Knowledge points for each one you complete.

year 2 chapter 1 1350

After you obtain all five stars, you’ll be tasked with casting the spell. Trace the path on the screen to successfully cast Reparifarge.

year 2 chapter 1 1360

Congratulations! You’ve just learned your first transfiguration spell. It will, without a doubt, be useful in your future adventures. Tap on the Collect button to continue.

Professor McGonagall will be very impressed by your skill, so impressed that she will ask if you want to have advanced transfiguration lessons outside of class.

year 2 chapter 1 1380

Accepting her offer requires level seven in the knowledge attribute, and this option is highly recommended since it will affect certain parts of the story later on. And that’s not all. Because you managed to cast the best Reparifarge in class you will be rewarded with ten house points.

And that’s it for Chapter One of Year Two. Hit the Collect button to claim your rewards. You will earn 175 Coins and 300 Experience points.
