Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery How to Get House Points

Play Story Missions

One of the most basic ways to get House Points in Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery is by playing through the main story. As you take lessons, learn magic, and improve your wizardry skills, you will accumulate House Points that go toward your yearly total. It’s important to note, however, that there will be events during the main story that will cause you to lose House Points as well. To counteract this, players must find alternative ways to earn House Points to boost their final score.

Rep Your House’s Values

One of the best ways to get more House Points in Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery is by always making sure to act in a way that coincides with your chosen house’s values. Ensure that you are choosing dialogue options that fit with and reflect the views of the house you are a part of.

Pay attention to the color surrounding each dialogue option, as this helps indicate the value attribute for that dialogue choice. Selecting dialogue that falls in line with the core values of your house can help you occasionally nab some extra House Points. 

Here are the value attributes associated with each house:

  • Gryffindor - Brave and Daring.
  • Hufflepuff - Dedicated and Loyal.
  • Ravenclaw - Intelligent and Witty.
  • Slytherin - Ambitious and Cunning.

Be a Good Student

Another way to earn more House Points in Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery is by doing well in classes, lessons, and challenges. Successfully completing classes can sometimes reward you with House Points at the end, so you’ll want to make sure you’re at the top of your game. Finishing a class without the minimum star requirement essentially means you’ve failed the class, which can result in you missing out on House Points.

Do Side Quests

After playing through some of the main story missions in Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery, there will eventually come a time where the game requires you to wait for a few hours before you can dive back in again. This is the perfect chance to start doing some side missions or optional classes to pass the time and earn extra rewards. Completing side content can sometimes help you get additional House Points to supplement points you may have lost during main story and allow you to maintain your house's rank on the House Cup leaderboard.
