The main goal in Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery is to complete all the story quests, but there are other objectives to go for as well. For example, players are also encouraged to earn enough house points to win the House Cup at the end of the year, but doing so is easier said than done.
Earning the House Cup in Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery boils down to players making sure their house has the most house points at the end of the year. There are multiple ways players can earn house points in Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery, such as completing main story missions, completing side missions that offer house points as a reward, selecting dialogue choices that jive with the characteristics of their house, and doing well in lessons.
The main obstacle to earning the House Cup comes from losing points. If players do poorly in lessons or do something else to upset their teachers, they can lose some of their hard-earned house points. To make sure this doesn’t happen, players should be sure that they go into lessons with plenty of energy to guarantee they hit the minimum star requirement, and be ready to complete any spell-casting QTEs that may come their way.
For example, if a lesson has a time limit of one hour, it may be advantageous for players to simply wait until their energy meter is refilled before starting it. Those that are less patient can search Hogwarts for free energy reserves, or if they are really desperate, use gems to buy more energy. Gems can be earned by completing tasks in-game, but if anyone wants a serious supply of gems, they will need to break out their wallet.
Ultimately, if players make sure they do well in their lessons and complete as many side quests as possible, they should have no trouble winning the House Cup at the end of the year. The reward for doing so is a whopping 100 gems, so it’s definitely worth the effort.
