Harry Potter Wiki

Throughout the gameplay of Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery, the player encounters multiple book and new characters that can become friends with. These accompany the player through most tasks and on many adventures as the story progresses. In the App update released on 30 May, 2018, players now are able to build friendships outside of the main story arc.[1]

Friendships are measured in levels of which there are 10 to reach in total for each friend. Friendship levels can be increased through three different activities to earn friendship XP. These activities cost coins and have cooldown times before they can be played again. Each new level comes with a reward as well as more options for characters to be brought on adventures during the main story or side quests. Rewards can be Gems, Energy or a Clothing Item. The Energy received from levelling up is stackable above the maximum energy level.[1]

Interactions to build friendships

Each interaction is basically a mini quiz with 4 questions to answer. Correct answers earn friendship XP that fill up a bar with three diamonds as checkpoints. At least one diamond needs to be passed to earn any friendship XP. Each answer is linked to a particular attribute which is indicated through the symbol behind each answer. Bonus points are given if the attribute level is higher than required. For a wrong answer 1 friendship XP is deducted, but the bonus points are rewarded anyway. When the bar is filled up with friendship XP, the activity is successfully finished.[1]

Note: The table shows the full amount of friendship XP. Activities finished with less than three diamonds earn also less friendship XP. The cooldown time will remain the same.

Some characters are unavailable in certain activities. Fred Weasley and George Weasley, as well as Cedric Diggory and Beatrice Haywood cannot be interacted with in the Three Broomsticks due to being too young to go to Hogsmeade. Murphy McNully cannot play Gobstones. After completing Year 5, Bill Weasley is not available for friendship interactions at all (due to his graduation), but he later becomes available again for Butterbeer. Dobby is only available for a meal in the Great Hall. Rubeus Hagrid is not available for these interactions at all, and friendship with him is built by completing side quests involving magical creatures.

Sometimes, events make certain friends temporarily unavailable, for example Tulip Karasu at the beginning of Year 4, as she is first missing and then sent to the Hospital Wing.

Friendship check

The friendship level greatly impacts some decisions within the game, because some options are only available when the friendship is strong enough - meaning a certain level is achieved at a specific point in the game. This may be to have the option to bring a friend on an adventure or an option during conversation. These parts are marked with a yellow diamond shape with the required level written in it next to the two or three options. The so far known highes required friendship levels are listed below.
