Secrets of Godric’s Hollow Part 2
Hello everyone, welcome to Part 2 of our Walkthrough for Secrets of Godric’s Hollow Adventure of Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery. During the previous part, you met with Penny to carve some pumpkins for the Halloween feast. While you were preparing for it, Ben arrived to inform you that Merula is planning to steal the Sword of Gryffindor.
You went to talk with her and try to convince her to see reason. Unfortunately, she wasn’t willing to give up on the search, so you decided to find the sword before she does.
Later on, you researched Godric Gryffindor with Penny, and learned that he was born in Godric’s Hollow, so you decided to start your search for the sword there. Interestingly enough, the Most Powerful Witch at Hogwarts is more than likely headed there too, so you’re off to a good start.

[Disclaimer: This walkthrough will feature the gameplay from the perspective of a Year 7 student. Since the adventure is available for students of Year 3 and above, the star and attribute requirements for certain tasks might be different for you, depending on your current progress of the main story.]
Once you start this part, you’ll be met with a waiting period of three hours. Since you’ll probably be low on energy at this point, it is recommended to wait and let your energy recharge in the meantime.
Proceed to Godric’s Hollow once the waiting time is over. Ben will be incredibly excited about visiting the place. After all, Godric’s Hollow has a lot of history.
You, on the other hand, will be focused primarily on finding Merula. Suddenly, you’ll hear a familiar voice.
Upon taking a look, you’ll spot Merula and Ismelda approaching. The Most Powerful Witch at Hogwarts will say that she purposefully led you to Godric’s Hollow. Her friend will be slightly confused to hear that.
Merula will quickly tell her to shut up, and Ismelda will say that the sword is located in a place far away.
In any case, the Most Powerful Witch at Hogwarts will be very confident that she is going to find the sword before you do.
Moments later, the two of them will walk away. Ben will immediately realize that Merula is trying to trick you.
You’ll agree with him and suggest searching the area to find any clues about the sword.
Searching Godric’s Hollow requires earning five stars within eight hours. All five stars are needed to pass.
Unfortunately, there aren’t any bonus progress actions for this task, so you won’t be able to save much energy while doing it.
You’ll learn that a renowned author Bathilda Bagshot is living in Godric’s Hollow, and there is a good chance that she knows something about the sword.
Ben will agree with you. He’ll say that knowing her work could help you convince her to tell you what she knows about the Sword of Gryffindor.
Ben will ask if you know of any book written by Bathilda Bagshot. There are three options to choose from. The correct answer is ‘A History of Magic’.
Your friend will advise you to be careful about what you say to Bathilda Bagshot. She more than likely knows Professor Dumbledore, and you definitely want to keep your visit a secret.
And if the Headmaster finds out that you went to Godric’s Hollow without permission, you might get punished for it.
You’ll suggest pretending that you are writing a report on the sword. That way, you could ask about it without raising suspicion.
Ben will like your idea. The two of you will then head to Bathilda Bagshot’s home. Proceed there when you are ready to continue.
You’ll politely greet Bathilda Bagshot and thank her for inviting you into her home. She’ll smile and say that you’ve arrived just in time for tea.
She will recall you saying that you’re working on some kind of report.
Ben will tell her that the report is about the Sword of Gryffindor. He’ll find it hard to hide his excitement.
You’ll mention her famous book and say that you’re honored to meet such a renowned author. Madam Bagshot will be happy to hear that you’re a fan of her book.
She will point at the typewriter on a nearby desk and say that’s where she spent many hours writing ‘A History of Magic’.
She’ll also say that she’s happy to talk with you about your report. You will assume that she must get plenty of visitors, so you’ll decide not to ask too many questions.
She will tell you that’s not really the case. You will learn that she already knows who you are. You’ll be surprised to hear that.
Madam Bagshot will wonder if you like being famous or not. There are two options to reply with. This choice won’t significantly impact the story, so feel free to pick the option you prefer.
Shortly after, Madam Bagshot will ask you to tell her the real reason why you visited her.
You’ll try to stay calm and say that you simply wish to write a report. However, she’ll easily be able to figure out you’re not telling the truth.
Before saying anything, Ben will ask her to promise not to tell Dumbledore about your visit. You’ll find his behavior inappropriate.
Madam Bagshot will kindly ask you to tell her the truth, if you don’t want to get in trouble later. You’ll decide to be honest and tell her why you came to Godric’s Hollow.
Explaining yourself requires earning five stars within three hours. All five stars are needed to pass, so avoid starting this task if you are low on energy.
There are bonus progress actions tied to your character and Madam Bagshot. Prioritize those if you want to save some energy.
You’ll sum things up and say that you want to prevent someone from stealing the Sword of Gryffindor.
Madam Bagshot will warn you not to look for the sword, since it’s too dangerous. She’ll also say that she warned two of your friends not to wander around the graveyard at night.
You’ll ask her about those two friends. She will say that she was visited by two witches just before you arrived.
Moments later, she’ll go to prepare the tea. Ben will assume that she was visited by Merula and Ismelda. You’ll quickly realize that they were lying to you earlier.
You will recall Madam Bagshot mentioning the graveyard earlier, so you’ll decide to go there. Proceed to Godric’s Hollow Graveyard when you are ready.
Upon arriving, you’ll be able to interact with some of the ghosts by tapping on their speech bubbles. You’ll quickly notice that the place is full of ghosts.
Ben will suggest searching the place. You’ll agree with him.
Searching the graveyard requires earning five stars within eight hours. All five stars are needed to pass.
There are two actions with bonus progress tied to your character, so focus on your actions if you want to save as much energy as possible.
Once you’re done searching, you will notice strange scorch marks on a nearby crypt.
You’ll figure out that someone was trying to open it forcefully. Ben will assume it was Merula.
He will notice the Gryffindor crest on the crypt, so he’ll ask if you think that Godric Gryffindor was buried there. You have three options to reply with. At this point, you don’t have any solid evidence, so it is somewhat recommended to pick the third option.
Still, Ben will say there’s a good chance something important is in the crypt, especially if Merula tried to open it. Unfortunately, you won’t be able to know for sure.
Ben will suggest asking one of the ghosts to tell you what happened. You’ll approach one of them and ask if there was anyone walking around the graveyard recently.
He’ll point at all of the nearby ghosts. You will decide to be a bit more specific about the question.
He’ll recall seeing two others before you came. Ben will ask him about those two. The ghost will say that the other two visitors were very ill-mannered.
Ben will figure out that those two were Merula and Ismelda. The following few lines will differ, depending on your previous choice. In any case, Ben will suggest investigating the crypt.
Still, you’ll have to figure out a way to open a crypt with no door. Luckily, there is someone who could confirm whether or not the crypt belongs to Godric Gryffindor. And that someone is none other than the portrait of Godric Gryffindor.
You will need to wait five hours before you can continue. Since you’ll likely be low on energy at this point, it is recommended to wait and let your energy recharge in the meantime.
Proceed to the corridor in the West Towers once the waiting time is over.
You’ll approach the portrait of Godric Gryffindor and say that you have an urgent question for him. If your character is a Gryffindor, you’ll get a few extra lines of dialogue.
Godric will ask if you can wait until after the Halloween feast. He’ll say that he needs to judge a Godric Gryffindor costume contest very soon.
You’ll tell him that a Halloween feast might be canceled unless he helps you. Upon hearing that, Gryffindor will decide to listen to what you have to say.
You’ll tell him that Merula is planning to steal the Sword of Gryffindor. Godric won’t be happy to hear that.
You’ll go on and tell him about the crypt you found. He will warn you not to open it.
You’ll tell him that you couldn’t reason with Merula, so you decided to find the sword before she does.
Godric will assume that you want to steal his sword. You will tell him that you are not a thief. Still, he won’t be sure whether or not you’re telling the truth, so you will decide to convince him that you have no intention of stealing the sword.
Convincing Godric Gryffindor requires earning five stars within three hours. Three stars are needed to pass.
There is a bonus progress action tied to the portrait of Godric Gryffindor. Prioritize his actions if you want to save some energy.
In the end, Godric will believe that you are telling the truth. You’ll ask if that means he will help you.
Before he’s ready to help you, Godric will ask you a question about himself. There are three options to choose from. The correct answer is ‘Duelling’.
After answering his question, Godric will agree to help you. You’ll ask him to tell you the whereabouts of the sword.
While he won’t tell you where the sword is, Godric will say that it is not inside the crypt Merula tried to open.
He’ll explain that the sword will remain hidden until the day a ‘true Gryffindor’ needs it. Anyone seeking it for personal gain will suffer a terrible fate.
You will tell him that you want to prevent a horrible fate from happening to anyone. Godric will say that your friend will be all right, as long as she doesn’t open the crypt.
You’ll tell him that Merula already tried opening the crypt, which was evident by the scorch marks you saw earlier.
Godric will be surprised to hear that. You will ask him to tell you about the crypt, so that you can prevent Merula from opening it. Unfortunately, he won’t be willing to reveal the crypt’s passphrase again.
As it seems, Merula and Ismelda managed to trick him into revealing the passphrase. You’ll realize that the two of them probably went straight back to the graveyard.
Having no other options, you will decide to go after Merula and stop her from opening the crypt.
This will conclude Part 2 of Secrets of Godric’s Hollow adventure. Hit the Collect button to claim your rewards. You will receive 3 Gems and 1 Chocolate Frog.
Will you be able to stop Merula from opening the crypt? Or will she manage to do it? Find out in the next part of this adventure!
