Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery, a mobile game by Jam City, is now available worldwide. Read on for Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery cheats, energy locations, guide & walkthrough to duels!
The most common problem you will face in this game is “energy”. The game has an energy system; energy points are required to complete the quest tasks. And these points are limited, re-generates after every few minutes. No energy points = No gameplay! And you can not leave an ongoing task without completing it. However, in short-term quests, you will not face this problem. In this post, we have covered everything about the game you need to know; Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery cheats, energy locations tips, hints, and a walkthrough guide to play like a pro!

Before you start the quest, check the duration of the quest(if it’s long, then it means you need lots of energy points) and then, check the energy points you have.

Choose The Duration Of The Class⇓
Before you start the quest or a class, you can select the duration; 8 hours, 1 hour, 3 hours. I would recommend you to choose an 8-hour duration because you will get more rewards and there will be no energy problem(even if you start with 0 energy]. If not, then choose the 3-hours duration and start with at least 20 energy.

Duel – Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery Guide To Duels⇓
Duel quests get unlocked when you reach chapter 5. In chapter 5 of Hogwarts Mystery, you battle against other students[Merula, Rowan]. Playing the duel is quite simple. You can duel when there is a quest available. Before chapter 5, your character learns some special magic;
Potions? For instance, using Wiggerweld Potion, you can heal or recover the HP points while dueling. Another example; If the opponent hurts you by casting a spell using the wand, you will lose health points. At that moment, use the healing potion to restore stamina. The player who losses all the points/stamina first will lose the match. Your objective in dueling is defeating the opponent and you can defeat the opponent easily by reading our Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery cheats and tips below.
Charms? You can say it “skill”. Use it to reduce the HP of the opponent or to stun.
As you progress in the Hogwarts Mystery game, you learn about new potions and charms. Attend potion class to learn about new potions and attend charm class to learn about new charms. Become the master! Duel mode is one of the best parts of Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery game. And it could be better if one can play against friends or other players in real-time. However, the quests are limited and it’s a story-driven game!
Let’s start the Duel guide: –
In duel mode, you have to select a specific stance upon your turn. The three stances are: –
Each stance has a unique list of options to choose from. And you can not figure out what your opponent is going to choose.
19.) Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery cheats, tips – Stances
- Sneaky has more advantage over Defensive
- The defensive has more advantage over Aggressive
- Aggressive has more advantage over Sneaky
For instance, you choose sneaky and your opponent chooses defensive, then you will win.
If you choose defensive and the opponent chooses aggressive, then you will win.
And at last, if you choose the aggressive stance and the opponent chooses sneaky, then you will win. And Vice Versa.
- Sneaky > Defensive
- Defensive > Aggressive
- Aggressive > Sneaky
If both the players have chosen the same stance, then it will be tie and the player who has low HP will get the bonus points. Actions: –
- Sneaky Stance – Throwing a vital, cast spells
- Aggressive Stance – Distract an opponent, cast offensive spells such as Incendio, Flipendo
- Defensive Stance – Taunting, use potions or supportive spells. If your HP is low, then use the healing option.
Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery Cheats, Tips – Play Duel Like A Pro!
You will be able to choose action if your stance beats the opponent’s stance. And you should choose it wisely; here’s how: –
- Stun your opponent – Check the actions you can perform and choose that, which can stun your opponent.[If available].
If you stun the opponent, the opponent would not be able to choose an action. It means, on the next turn, if opponent’s stance beat your choice, he/she will not get the advantage. Stunning your opponent is a great defensive tool during a duel.
How to restore stamina?
In the duel, the player who losses all the stamina(energy or HP) first will lose. If your stamina has decreased due to an attack by the opponent, you can restore it by choosing a defensive stance and then choose the healing action.
Another tip – Increase your attribute points to strengthen your duel performance. Read the attribute guide above.
Hogwarts Mystery Duel Strategy Tips, Cheats: –
- The first action depends on the luck – no strategy. If you win, then choose aggressive or sneaky
- If the opponent is low on health, chances are they will choose defensive – in this case, you should choose sneaky
- If you are low on health, chances are they will choose aggressive. In this case, you should choose defensive and heal
- And at last, if both are low on health, choose sneaky.
