Chapter 7 – Facing the door



Hello everyone, welcome to our Walkthrough for Chapter Seven of Year Two of Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery. In the previous chapter, you met and instantly befriended Bill Weasley. Without a flinch, he offered to help you with the whole cursed vaults situation. He trained you in order to improve your dueling skills.

You studied hard to prepare for learning the Fire-Making Spell. Bill helped you with that and after a bit of practice, you learned Incendio. It will surely be handy when dealing with the cursed ice.

Now is the time to continue where you left off. Once you start this chapter, you will be met with a waiting period of three hours. That is one of the reasons why it is recommended that you focus on the lessons part of the chapter first. Hit the GO button and proceed to the Potions classroom when you’re ready.

year 2 chapter 7 1020

Unlocking Fire Protection potion lesson requires you to earn a total of nine stars from Potions classes. The fastest way to do so is by completing three three-hour classes.

However, if you are interested in obtaining some additional attribute and house points, it is recommended to do two eight-hour classes. Once you’ve made up your mind about which class to take, hit the Start button to begin.

These classes should be done in the same manner as all of the other ones you did so far. Focus on actions with bonus progress (actions with the highest cost) whenever they are available if you want to save some energy.

Also, do your best to successfully complete the mini-tasks in order to maximize the attribute points gained.

Once you obtain all nine stars, head back to the Potions classroom to attend the lesson.

To complete the Fire Protection potion lesson, you need to earn five stars within three hours. Since all of the stars are required to pass, it is recommended to have full energy when starting.

There is nothing special about this lesson, just do it in the same way as any other and you should have no problem completing it in time.

Once you obtain all five stars, you will need to wave your wand over the cauldron. Trace the path on the screen to successfully finish Fire Protection Potion.

Congratulations! You learned how to brew the potion that could potentially save someone’s life. Hit the Collect button to claim your rewards and continue.

You will also earn an additional reward for completing the lesson. You can claim it in the Potions section of your Hogwarts Record.

Now that you’re done with the lessons part of the chapter, you can continue with the story. Hit the GO button and proceed to the Corridor to meet Bill.

You’ll find him standing near the vanishing stairs. He will be excited about this curse-breaking adventure.

You will explain to Bill that you need to move fast, because the slower you walk, the more you’ll be affected by the cold. Bill will instruct you to stay close behind him and he’ll be very self-confident.

You’ll then go to the cursed vault. Bill will be both surprised and fascinated when he sees the ice.

It seems that there are some walls of ice preventing you from reaching the door. You’ll have to think of a way to deal with them. There are two options you can choose from – Incendio or Flipendo.

Both of the spells are equally as effective for this task, so pick whichever one you prefer. Also, each option will give you five attribute points.

After you’ve made up your mind, you’ll have to cast the chosen spell three times in order to break all of the ice walls.

Once you’ve dealt with that, the way to the door will be clear. Now is the matter of breaking the ice surrounding the door itself.

This task requires you to earn five stars within three hours. Pretty standard you’d say. But there is a catch. Once you begin it, you can’t leave the room until you’re done. Because of that, it is extremely recommended to have full energy prior to starting. When you are ready, hit the Start button to begin.

There is a bonus progress action tied to the icy door. Prioritize it whenever it is available if you want to save some energy.

Once you obtain all five stars, hit the Collect button to claim your rewards and continue.

As soon as you’re done, poor Bill will get hit by the cursed ice which will render him completely immobile. Since there is no time to get any help, you’ll have to cast the Fire-Making Spell to free him.

The spell will work and Bill will be freed from the ice. Regardless of not being physically hurt, it appears that most of his strength was drained by the ice. You can reply in three ways.

year 2 chapter 7 1210

Each option will award you with five attribute points, but it won’t affect the outcome. You’ll decide that the best thing to do is to get out of there before you freeze to death. With this, the chapter will be completed. Hit the Collect button to claim your rewards. You will earn 225 Coins and 450 Experience points.

Now that was one exciting chapter. Thank you for reading and see you soon with another awesome chapter of Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery!
