It’s easier said than done, but patience is essential for Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery. As you complete sections of the story, you will often need to wait multiple hours for the next section to open up, unless you spend the premium currency. There are training lessons for different school subjects to complete while you’re waiting. The catch is that everything you do costs energy, and once your meter is deleted, you need to wait once again. If you don’t want to spend money, then patience is the key skill to play this game.
The game delivers the classic hurry up and wait idea as you jump in, play for just a couple of minutes, and then you can’t do anything unless you wait or pay. The more you play Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery, the more you realize that it’s similar to a simulation building game like Tiny Tower. Once you have that mindset, it’s easy to get into the routine of just playing for a few minutes a couple of times a day. Since we all have busy lives, with plenty else to do on an iOS device, you’re never really missing Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery.
