Free Energy Guide for Harry Potter: Hogwarts MysteryMay 7, 2018 | 1 Votes by Aethyna 10 rate Just need that extra few energy points to complete a task or a lesson? Well, you can get some free energy points simply by tapping on these objects around Hogwarts!
As mentioned in our review of Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery, we find that the game has a truly frustrating energy-based system that is made even worse because many of the tasks you do in the game force you to complete the objective needed within a very strict time limit.
However, if you really want a bit more energy to get that final star for a task at hand and are unwilling to spend any real money (or the free gems you got) to get more, here are all of the locations around Hogwarts you can find free energy in!
Please take note that these free energy sources will “regenerate”, so to speak, after 6 hours, and if you really want to make full use of these free energy sources, you will need to keep track of the 6-hour cooldown period yourself. The game doesn’t have anything that can help you here.
There’s a painting of a night’s sky in between the Charms Classroom and the staircase. Tap on that painting and a lady in a wedding gown will the walk into the frame. This is where you can get a free energy point.
For the West Towers, there’s a painting that looks a lot like a tree stump between the Prefects’ Bathroom and the Gryffindor Common Room. When tapped, you’ll get a free energy point and a hand will pop into the frame to drop 3 oranges onto the flat side of the tree stump.
Lower Floor - West
Unlike the other floors, you can get 2 free energy points here. The first one is really easy – you just need to tap on the unlit brazier on the right side of the entrance to the Great Hall to light it.
The second energy point can be earned simply by tapping on the middle of the three knight statues/ suits of armor just next to (they are on the right) the previously unlit brazier. The knight in the middle will spring into life and swap his sword for a shield with the statue/ suit of armor on his right.
However, I've noticed that sometimes, this free energy option may not be available even after the usual 6-hour cooldown period is up. You can easily see whether the knight has a free energy for you or not - you simply need to check which item the statue has at its feet, whether it is a sword (you can collect the free energy point) or a shield (no free energy for you).
In between the Kitchen and the Potions classroom, you will see a house elf who is leaning against a pillar. Simply tap on him to send him scurrying back into the kitchens and you’ll get your free energy!
Once you’re at the Castle Grounds, you should see a twig on the ground in between the Whomping Willow and Hagrid’s Hut. If you tap on it, a dog will rush right over, pick up the stick and bundle off into the distance, possibly to play with its newfound toy. You will also gain a free energy point.
Lower Floor - East
Once you enter Year 2 at Hogwarts, you will unlock this floor. As you swipe across the place, you should see a stone bench with some books scattered on it. Tap on these books to get your free energy and to magically stack the books into a neat pile.
We will update this guide after we’ve uncovered more information.
