Harry Potter: Magic Awakened Cheats and Tips


Harry Potter: Magic Awakened Cheats and Tips


Creating your Hogwarts student persona

Attending Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry is a core part of the game. After sitting through a series of cutscenes, you can create and customize your character. Options are somewhat limited, but more become unlocked after attending Hogwarts and visiting Diagon Alley during your breaks.

Character creation

  • Enter your character’s name.
  • Select your gender, male (wizard) or female (witch).
  • Customize your face: skin tone, facial features – including freckles, glasses.
  • Choose your hair color, hairstyle, makeup style, and accessories.
  • Pick your scarf and coat (4 choices).


The next step involves sorting into your house: you must choose between Hufflepuff, Slytherin, Ravenclaw, and Gryffindor. Consider these houses as a chosen guild.

The Sorting Hat will suggest one by default, but feel free to override the Sorting Hat’s decision anyway.

Once you gain control over your character after the Sorting Hat ceremony, you can open up your Knapsack and select New Look Mirror. The New Look Mirror will let you change your appearance anytime; note that the chosen gender is locked in.

Undercover Harry Potter: Magic Awakened’s gameplay

This section reveals the core gameplay behind Harry Potter: Magic Awakened. The game isn’t shy about using a lot of flavor text, but not everyone will have the background going in, which is why we break down what everything means.

How the cards work

To put it simply, Harry Potter: Magic Awakened plays out like a real-time role-playing game (RPG) using a collectible card game system for your in-battle equips. Cards bring strategy to each battle; they are your general abilities when fighting, and each skill requires a unique point cost for its use, so balancing your deck is essential. Upgrading and equipping cards that synergize together unlock your full potential in a fight.

How movement works

Movement (tap on a movement card) and select any position on the map to move your Witch or Wizard to that location. Repositioning is restricted by how many movement cards you own, so be strategic!

Card types

Cards are categorized into rarity (from highest to lowest): Legendary, Epic, Rare, and Common. The rarer the card, the more potent it is. Also, cards can be further divided by type; Spell cards and Summoning cards. Spell cards go into effect immediately when cast, while Summoning cards and creatures are placed on the field to trigger their effects.

More importantly, decks need to include Companion cards and Echoes. Companion cards perform like assist characters, and Echoes generate buffs for your deck.

Your deck should be built around your equipped Echo. This is your most important synergy to account for.

Acquiring and upgrading cards

Cards are unlocked via completing Yearbook entries (story), opening Flying Car rewards, and participating in Magical Studies (using keys and Gems in a gacha system).

Similar to equipment in RPGs, your cards can be upgraded. Upgrades cost Gold and card duplicates, so plan carefully.

Collecting cards with Magical Studies

Using keys to begin a draw in Basic and Advanced Studies is another way to guarantee cards. The rates of higher rarity cards are low, but accumulating enough draws will ensure a Legendary card after 20 pulls (Advanced Studies). Basic studies will only give you a Rare card after 30 draws.

You need Gems to continue the draws once you’ve run out of keys. Never spend Gems on the Basic Study banner; stick with saving up for the Advanced Studies banner.
