Having trouble getting energy in Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery? It's true that in this game, energy is at the heart of the gameplay. Without it, you can't advance in the story or in the years to come Hogwarts. So here's our special guide to energy in Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery! For all the tips and tricks on how to get energy, it's over here! 🪄
How does the energy work in Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery?
In HP: HM, energy is the most important resource. It simply allows you to carry out your actions and thus, to advance in the progression of the story. As we explain in our complete guide to getting started on Harry Potter, the goal of the game is to complete quests, to advance in the story, to progress from year to year to solve the riddle of the cursed cellars and to discover what happened to your brother.
Your maximum energy reserve increases over the years at Hogwarts, mainly when you validate your flight lessons. You start the game with 24 energy points. When your energy reserve is empty or depleted, the gauge fills up withone energy point every 4 minutes. This means that with a reserve of 30 energy points, the gauge fills up completely in 120 minutes. Every 2 hours, you can spend all your energy.
💡 Tip: Remember to enable notifications for the game Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery on your phone! This is because you will receive an alert when your gauge is full. This allows you to spend your energy without overcap. Since once the gauge is full, well, the gauge is full.
Alternatively, you can also play Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery on PC to always have the game running in the background. 🤫
The big advantage I noticed, which differs a bit from other games with similar gameplay, is that the energy gauge is not "captured" if you gain energy points through a mini-game, leveling up, or whatever, while your gauge was full. These new energy points will simply be added to your gauge by exceeding the maximum allowed. Be careful, this does not work with the energy points hidden in the scenery (see below).
Finally, a little advice, never leave the game without spending your entire energy gauge, unless you're sure you'll be back on the game in less than 2 hours. It's so hard to earn, not spending it all would be a waste 😉
The energy hidden in the decor of Hogwarts : list of places
Here is a list of all the places to get energy in Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery. Repop times are different for each spot, but overall, you can be sure to get your energy back by coming once in the morning and once in the evening.
Reserve of magic creatures: you must tap on the small wolf which is close to the trees, before the forest.
Quidditch Stadium: The energy point is recovered from the Golden Snitch by advancing to the Quidditch Stadium.
East Towers: 2 energy points can be collected here! The first one is on the mirror next to the spell room. You will then make appear a little girl. The second is on Peeves, the ghost, at the end of the corridor, next to the divination room!
West Towers: Here, the energy point is located on the frame on the wall next to the Prefects' room. Fruit will appear in the frame after clicking.
Lower floor - West: Here too, 2 energy points are to be recovered! You have to tap on the left and the right statue. They will move and exchange their weapons.
Dungeons: A house elf hides in the dungeons next to the kitchens. It gives you 1 energy point.
Castle Enclosure: Crockdur, Hagrid's dog, appears when you tap his stick on the ground. He gives you 1 energy point.
Lower Floor - East: Click on the messy books on the bench next to the Library. They will stack back up and give you 1 energy point.
Hogsmeade: Click on the little character waving at you at the end of the alley, between the Three Broomsticks Inn and Honeydukes.
Recover energy by regularly visiting the Hogwarts
The 3 Clubs at Hogwarts are unlocked from Chapter 7 in Year 1. Once you reach Rank 2 in a club, by going there (Hippogriff, Dragon and Sphinx), you can earn random rewards . Among them, you can get up to 5 energy points. But be careful, getting energy is not guaranteed. You may as well get coins or pet food.
You can go there twice a day (in the morning and in the evening) to be sure to get your bonuses.
Earning energy with mini-games
Each of the mini-games in Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery allows you to increase your friendship level with your friends. And each friendship level up gives you rewards. Either you gain 5 gems (also a valuable resource), or you gain between 5 and 15 energy points (depending on your friendship level and character). In any case, the 2 rewards are very interesting. So, as soon as it's available, play the mini-games!
- Bavboules: costs 65 coins (year 1) / available every 16 hours or by paying gems to unlock instantly (but personally, I don't find it profitable, you'll spend a lot more than you'll earn).
- Eat with a friend: costs 95 coins (year 1) / available every 10 hours or by also paying gems to unlock.
- Drinking Beerberry (unlocks in Chapter 8 of Year 3): costs 160 coins on average (varies depending on the friend chosen) / available every 16 hours or by paying gems to unlock.
Keep track of special events and log in every day
It is very important to remember to log in at least once every day to be able to collect the daily reward from the Time Buffer Card. Every day you earn a different pre-defined reward. Sometimes you will gain energy, and not just a little!
In addition, some special events allow you to recover energy. I'm thinking of the event where a Niffler is hiding in the background. By clicking on it, you get some of your precious resource back.
Finally, on several occasions during my adventures at Hogwarts, I was able to get a very nice one-time reward. 150 energy points offered because I'm an avid player. 😅
Adopting a pet: a good way to recover energy
As soon as you have accumulated enough gems, you can buy a pet. For 200 gems you can buy a cat. Ideally, you should wait for the side quest with Hagrid and his dog Crockdur. To complete this side quest, you'll need to buy a cat! You might as well combine business with pleasure 😉
This pet follows you everywhere, and allows you to collect an energy point, several times a day, by simply tapping on it.
By the way, you can buy several pets that will be waiting for you in your dormitory. By tapping on them, you wake them up and gain one energy point for each pet.
Watch ads in Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery
From year 2 onwards, you will be able to recover energy by watching commercials. Each ad you watch will give you3 energy points. Of course, there is a limit of ads available (it varies between 3 and 5 ads per day).
Also, each day, you are offered to watch a daily video in exchange for rewards tempting: 5 gems, 75 coins or 6 energy points! This video is reset every 15 hours.
Recover energy in Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery by winning a duel
Last little trick to recover energy! Go to the Dungeons, to the Dueling Room and engage in a fight. A victory will give you, among other things, an energy point! By the way, I'd like to take this opportunity to invite you to check out our guide to dueling to make sure you win at (almost) every turn. ⚔️
