One of the most anticipated mobile games of the year, Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery continues to its updates to fix gameplay issues that players mentioned before. As we all know, Hogwarts Mystery criticized because of the energy system which is forcing players to use micro transactions or long waiting times, to regain energy.
In the latest update of the game, players can obtain very important in-game items; pets!
Four pets, toad, cat, owl and rat added into the game after the latest patch. But, despite the negative comments about micro transactions, developers preferred to add those new pets in-game transaction shop.
Currently, it is not possible to obtain those new pets without spending real money on them or playing the game for a long time. Each of the pets are priced between 160 and 320 gems, which is the premium currency of Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery. Even it is possible to collect gems with playing the game, it is extremely slow process.
What is the purpose of a pet in Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery?
Pets are functioning as an energy generator. Each pet has a different shape, but all of them generates energy every game morning. Developers presented the pet idea as a fix to energy problem, but it is still not enough for players because of the high prices.
In Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery, players can obtain all four of the pets, even it is not possible in Harry Potter universe. In wizarding world, a wizard can only have one pet. The game changed that rule a little bit with the latest patch.
