Disclaimer: This walkthrough will feature the gameplay from the perspective of a Year 2 student. Since the adventure is available for students of Year 2 and above, the star and attribute requirements for certain tasks might be different for you, depending on the year you’re in.
Upon arriving, you will be able to interact with some of the characters and see what they have to say. You will thank your friends for meeting you.
They will be curious to know why you wanted to meet with them. Penny will assume it has something to do with the Teacher Appreciation Celebration.
You will nod and say you are still unsure about some parts of your presentation on Professor McGonagall.
You’ll want to go over the things you’ve learned so far, and hear their opinions before finalizing everything. Your Hufflepuff friend will be more than willing to help.
As for Merula, she won’t seem too excited about it. You will tell her that you want to hear things from other people’s perspectives. Only that way you will be able to make a good enough presentation.
Hagrid will be curious to know if there’s anything he can do to help. You’ll point out that he’s part of Hogwarts staff, which makes his opinion highly valuable.
He will nod and say he’s happy to give his opinion on the matter. You’ll then get to discuss things you’ve learned about Professor McGonagall with them.
This requires earning five stars within one hour (three hours for Year 4+ students). One star is needed to pass for Year 2-3 students. All five stars are required to pass for Year 4+ students.
The only bonus progress action here is linked to your character. Prioritize it if you want to save a bit of energy.
Hagrid will say that you’ve learned quite a lot about Professor McGonagall. You will nod and ask each of them to share their opinions with you.
Hagrid will say that Professor McGonagall is very wise and trustworthy. What Merula likes about her is that she is competitive and tenacious. As for Penny, she admires that the Professor is humane and devoted.
You will notice that all those things together perfectly describe Professor McGonagall. Still, you will have to choose the most important qualities to showcase.
There are three options to choose from.Keep in mind that this choice will affect some of the dialogue later on, but it won’t change the outcome of the adventure, so you can freely pick the option you deem the most appropriate.
Penny will be glad that you’re finally ready for your presentation. As for Merula, she will go back to her usual self.
You will smile and thank all of them for helping you finalize your presentation. Hagrid will give you some words of encouragement before you go.
