Has a Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery Friendship side quest got you stumped? Check out the best answers to character encounters with Rowan, Ben Copper and more, here.
Harry Potter: Hogwarts Academy has a number of different quests and activities that can affect how you progress though the game. One interesting interaction type occurs when you encounter non-playable characters. These side quests involve students with whom you have the potential to form a friendship (sorry, Merula won't be making it on that list). The strength of the relationship depends on the number of friendship sidequests you perform, and how well you do on them. The stronger the relationship grows, the more the character can help you during your quests. Besides strengthening your connection, completing these activities can yield resource rewards such as coins, gems and XP points.
The trickiest thing about these side quests is knowing a character well enough to make a good choice about how to answer him or her in a given situation. Side Quests give you a specific goal (ex: Distract Rowan) and then require you to reach the goal within a certain amount of turns. While you are given three different responses to choose from, one will be completely wrong, another will be “ok” and the third will be the best answer. Below we’ve put together a list of all the friendship side quests we’ve completed so far, along with the best answers. As we unlock more characters and complete more of these missions, we’ll continue to update this post. Additionally, if there are some character side quests you’ve completed and you want to share, send them to email@example.com and we’ll add them to the list -- with a hat tip to you of course. If you are looking for answers to class and lesson questions, you can find our list, here. Or you can check out all of our Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery Guides, here.
