MAIN TASK 15 : Hogwarts: A History
Objective - Find a copy of the large history book "Hogwarts: A
History" and return to Hermione at the Common Room.
Go up and into the Library.
In the library, don't bother examining the bookshelves because you'll
When you enter, go down the steps and open the chest for a Pumpkin
Pasty. Drag the stone block onto the switch to open the gate, then
vaporise the cobweb blocking up the doorway on the southern wall. Watch
out for the Dungbomb expelled, then open the chest in the small chamber
for a Chocolate Frog <CF: 8/30>.
Turn back and go through the doorway you just opened, and cut down the
walking Living Armor in the corridor for a Cauldron Cake. Inspect the
portrait of the bearded wizard for a Jellybean <J: 35/100> and destroy
the cobweb in the corner for another <J: 36/100>. Restore stamina from
the Pumpkin Pasty in a chest, then continue through the doorway. Get
the Chocolate Frog <CF: 9/30> from the chest in the middle of the next
room, and drag the stone block onto the switch.
Head through the opened doorway, and flip the only lever to be found in
this room. A Leviosa block will drop down; use it to mount the ledge
next to it for a Jellybean from the chest <J: 37/100>. Then fall back
down and move the two Leviosa blocks to the two Leviosa switches.
Click! Another gate opens. Get another Jellybean <J: 38/100> from the
chest near the gate and proceed. Blow away the Living Armor trooping
around in the corridor for a Cauldron Cake, then dodge the stationary
Living Armors' axes and smash the pot on the pathway for a Jellybean <J: 39/100>. Be careful when blowing away a second patrolling Living
Armor, because of the hassle the nearby gold Living Armor will add.
Finally, smash a Living Armor at the bottom of a stairway and proceed
gleefully upwards. There, on a table at the eastern end of the room you
enter, is the book you're looking for! Then destroy the patrolling
Living Armor in the room for a Cauldron Cake; a door will slide open.
Get through it and from there it shouldn't be too hard to find your way
out of the Library. Then get back up to your Common Room and find
Hermione; she's in the study with Ron. Talk to her to complete your
task; after giving you a history lesson, the day ends.
When you regain control, go downstairs and talk to Hermione. She'll
give you your next task, and then go off. Well then, find your way to
Moaning Myrtle's bathroom on Floor 2.
Here, you'll be treated to a cutscene; Hermione and Ron find some
spiders acting in a strange way, so they enter the unused, haunted
bathroom to investigate. There, the ghoul who haunts the bathroom,
Moaning Myrtle, has a (rather pointless) conversation with them, before
flying off. Anyway, follow the corridor and when you see a gold door
along the way, open it with Alohomora. Search the four desks; one has a
Dungbomb (RUN AWAY) and another has a Cauldron Cake. Examine the
wardrobe for a Jellybean <J: 40/100> and go through the door on the
southern wall. Open the chest in plain view for a Chocolate Frog <CF:
10/30> and blow away the two Living Armors on the other side to reach
the lever behind them. Flip it to open a door, and go through it into a
bare chamber. Ransack the chest for a Wizard Card and smash the barrel
for a Jellybean <J: 41/100>.
Then go back and exit the room you unlocked with Alohomora, and go down
the rest of the corridor into the open doorway.
MAIN TASK 16 : Moste Potente Potions
Objective - In order to interrogate Malfoy, you and your chums need
to locate a forbidden book in the restricted section of
the library that contains the recipe of the Polyjuice
The moment you enter, you'll be treated to a rather easy boss fight
against the poltergeist of Hogwarts. Don't believe that you really
can't hurt ghosts. After all, this is a magical world, is it not?
| BOSS : Peeves |
- Hurls explosive eggs at you
- Flies inside an armor and recharges stamina (not quite an attack)
- Inside the last armor, he will hurl Dungbombs
- Switches off the candles once in a while (but this is not
Peeves, while annoying, is dreadfully easy. Very occasionally, he
will toss explosive eggs. While his health bar is still green, hit
him with a charged Flipendo to make him retreat inside an armor.
It'll begin rattling; before Peeves can charge up to maximum, smash
apart the armor. He'll recharge energy anyway, but keep hitting him
and destroying the armors he attempts to shield himself in, and his
health bar turns red. Destroy the last armor before he can start
popping out Dungbombs. Then keep up a relentless Flipendo
bombardment until he cackles and flies off.
Peeves drops a spellbook as he escapes. Pick it up, and boom!
***YOU LEARNED A NEW SPELL!***
Skurge - Skurge is used to remove 'Ectoplasm' barriers that may have
been placed to block doors or passageways. It also has the added
advantage of scaring off some unfriendly, but cowardly ghosts
disguising themselves as statues.
Skurge works sorta like Incendio, except it works only on green
Ectoplasm, slime-dripping barriers. Now that Peeves is done with,
evaporate the Ectoplasm barrier and go through the door. Receive your
"Hi Harry, some ghosts around Hogwarts like to disguise themselves as
statues, usually on blocks you'll need to push onto a floor pad. Simply
scare them off with a blast of your Skurge spell and they'll fly away.
Then you can move the block onto the pad. - Ron"
With that in mind, continue through the doorway. A prefect is lurking
around the corridors here and will knock 2 points off your House point
score if you get caught. First open the chest to the right of the
doorway for a Sickle, then sneak down the corridor closely behind the
prefect and conceal yourself in the curtained alcove when he passes by.
Then walk up to the doorway, wait until the prefect in the next
corridor passes by, then race behind him and follow the corridor down
the stairs. Knock out the Living Armor and smash the pot for a Cauldron
Cake, and vaporise the cobweb using Incendio for a Knut and continue
onward south. Open the chest near the Spiked Ball for a Knut. Run past
the Wallfire when it ejects steam, and avoid getting chopped by a gold
Living Armor. Go down the corridor, using the curtained alcoves to
avoid another prefect marching along the carpet, then open the chest
for a Pumpkin Pasty. Flip the lever to open a door, and in the next
corridor, there's another prefect! Avoid him and open the chest for a
Knut, then go down the corridor (avoiding the gold Living Armor) and
through the doorway, ignoring the other two chests in the corridor.
Flip the lever to open a gate, then go through the open doorway. Turn
right and, using the alcoves to avoid the prefect, cast Skurge on the
statue on what appears to be a pedestal to dissipate the ghost. Move
the pedestal onto the switch and proceed through the open door. In the
next room, Moste Potente Potions is lying on a table! Grab it and now,
you must escape from the restricted section of the library. Simply
retrace your steps.
