MAIN TASK 7 : The Great Hall
Objective - Ron needs to tell Harry something, so get Harry's butt
down to the meeting place of Hogwarts students - the
When you wake up, go downstairs and to the study, where Ron waits, near
the fireplace. He'll tell you to get down to the Great Hall. So exit
the Common Room and enter the Portrait Room.
Go left and through the doorway to the Entrance Hall.
Turn right and there's the Great Hall. TADA!!!
Shatter the pot in the bottom left corner of the Great Hall for a
Jellybean <J: 16/100>, then taking the left lane go upwards past the
plate-laden tables. Open the chest along the way for a Wizard Card,
then when you get to the teachers' table at the very front, open
another chest for a Chocolate Frog <CF: 3/30>. Then walk right and to
Ron, who explains to you the Point Hourglasses. Through good
performances, you can win points; getting caught by teachers or
prefects when sneaking around, loses points. Examining the Hourglasses
will bring up a list of each House's points. Check regularly back to
make sure your House is ahead.
First shatter the pot on the right wall of the Hall for a Jellybean <J:
17/100>, then go back and exit the Great Hall.
Hermione will greet you and tell you that you have a flying lesson in
the Hogwarts Grounds. There'll be quite a difficult challenge up ahead,
so save at the Save Book before heading outside and to the Hogwarts
First, go south and receive your Owl Post.
"Hi Harry, it's worth poking around in bushes to see what you might
find. Stand next to one and examine it to see if there's anything
hidden inside it. Some vases around the school may also have items
hidden in them; a blast from Flipendo should be enough to smash them
open. - Ron"
Examine the bush just nearby the stand for a Knut, then Go north and
cast a fully charged Incendio on the cobweb in the corner beside the
Whomping Willow (that whopping big tree in the Grounds) for a Jellybean <J: 18/100>. Then climb up the ledge behind the Whomping Willow and
examine the bush for another Jellybean <J: 19/100>, and open the chest
for a Wizard Card. Then follow the stone pathway to the next area of
When you enter, go south and search a bush for a Jellybean <J: 20/100>.
From there go northeast and get the Chocolate Frog from a chest in the
corner <CF: 4/30>. Hug the wall and forge on east and eventually you'll
reach a bush and chest guarded by gnomes. Search the chest for a Wizard
Card. Hugging the right wall, go south and then east. Receive your Owl
"Hi Harry, use your sharp aim to steer your broomstick through the
rings. Strafing can help your aim even more. You have a boost bar,
which fills up for each ring successfully passed through. The more
rings you pass through without using it, the longer it'll last when you
do. Let's get practicing! - Oliver Wood"
Well now, let's play some Quidditch! Head on and talk to the wizened
old witch carrying a broom. This is Madam Hooch and she'll instruct you
on your task.
MAIN TASK 8 : Flying Lesson 1
Objective - Fly through 24 rings in at least 90 seconds to pass.
In order to pass this lesson you need to pass through 24 rings in 90
seconds. If you don't know the intracacies of Quidditch, refer to the "Quidditch" section in this guide.
However, if you want a Wizard Card and 25 House points, you have to
pass through the 24 rings in 35 seconds. In case you're wondering,
that's an insane challenge. A single slip up will cost you dearly. Here
are some tips:
- Flying through every ring will earn you ssome boost charge. Boost by
- Every time you get boost from flying throoug a ring, use it to zoom
quickly through the next.
- Adjust the flying controls at the Start MMenu to get a set of controls
you are comfortable with.
- Don't mis-aim; to check you're headed forr the centre of the ring,
make sure the image of Harry covers as much of the ring as possible.
- When passing through one ring, another wiill spawn. All rings are
arranged in a circle.
Getting the challenge done will of course earn you the Wizard Card.
After you have completed it, go south; you see that little shed? That's
the Broom Shed and you may use it to check your Quidditch performance,
as well as carry out practice. Now head on south and examine the bushes
as you go for Jellybeans <J: 22/100>. Then collect your Owl Post just
south of the second bush...
"Hi Harry, the object of Quidditch is to catch the Golden Snitch. Fly
through the hoops to build your boost bar, then use your boost wisely
to catch up with the Snitch, and grab it! But watch out; Slytherin's
new Seeker is Draco Malfoy. Try and avoid the Bludgers, too, as they'll
reduce your boost bar and slow you down if they hit you. Let's win the
Quidditch Cup! - Oliver Wood"
That ought to give you some useful insight into how to play Quidditch.
Return to Hogwarts castle. Use the Portrait Room shortcuts.
