Good thing that I didn't try it! I had in mind to do just that, because it takes less time. In this period the work has increased considerably (so much for economic crisis!) and I haven’t much time to give to Pottermore.

D'oh! Maybe I picked the wrong one to try. The practice potion was Cure for Boils, I forgot that there was also a non-practice version in the potions book. (I'm going to blame all the overtime at work frying my brain! I even had to go in on Saturday )

I'm sorry! That's probably why it didn't work. I did mine directly from the potions book.

Pottermore should have been more specific, perhaps.

Re: Pottermore v.12

I think it has to be three of the same potions because up until a few days ago, I had done two Cure of the Boils and Antidote to the Common Poision and didn't get the badge (and lost three cauldron's while I was at it).

The instructions say "brew three potions successfully in a row" to earn the potions badge. Messing up one of those potions means the brewer has to start over. Unfortunately the instructions don't indicate that the potions brewed must qualify for points - meaning neither Polyjuice potions nor the practice potions will count toward the badge.

Re: Pottermore v.12

Lucky you!
I have to give it up, for the time being. Not only because I have no time, but also because since a few days my internet connection is really pitiful! perhaps due to bad weather.
In these conditions it’s not the right time to preparing potions.

Re: Pottermore v.12

Hey, guys guess what! First chapters of PoA are available! Uhh yes I only found out just now.

I can't access them though. I tried clicking forward on the last chapter or CoS, but it takes me back to the gateway. Do you have to do something special to be able to access PoA?

Re: Pottermore v.12

Buy the books for CoS on second year shopping list. If you didn't brew the swelling solution & polyjuice you might need to do that, too.

I went and bought all missing books (which means I had to buy nearly all of them) and it works now. Thanks!

For luck I didn't have to brew Polyjuice. I don't have patience for this kind of stuff.

Re: Pottermore v.12

The Pottermore Insider now has an article on the process they go through when choosing moments & designing the artwork for them.

Is it just me, or does the second last version of the Magical Menagerie moment have Ron & Hermione looking kinda like Shaggy & Daphne from Scooby Doo?

Re: Pottermore v.12

Be careful what you say and please don't give Disney any more ideas... The last thing I want is ANOTHER lousy Scooby Do film with Rupert and Emma playing Shaggy and Daphne...

Re: Pottermore v.12

Haven't been to Pottermore for awhile. I have been gifted potions and I haven't brewed any. I guess I won't get a badge then. No big deal.
Hope they open up some new chapters soon. Or have they already?

They still have only the first seven chapters of Prisoner of Azkaban open.

Re: Pottermore v.12

Hi!
Huuuuuge time no post... not even sure anyone remebers me.

Anyway, I just got around to Pottermore and re-did all of PS moments just to find the new book bits (well, the content didn't really impress me, but I had to see it) and then started CoS.

But now I'm super frustrated because I suck at de-gnoming and it's so frustrating that I can't get them to fly at all and when they do it's backwards... Once I managed to throw them over the hedge. 3 of them in a row wasn't enough? Really?... How many do I have to throw?

I'll be forever stuck on Pottermore and never will be able to read any new content. *sigh*

Any tips?

Try grabbing them as high as possible on the wall and get them spinning fast; that should get them over the wall. I think it's 5 you'll need to toss.

Wait till you get to the Cornish pixies!!

Re: Pottermore v.12

Managed to get 5 of them over the hedge by not swinging them too much (2 swings are enough) and honestly it is much like you would do it in real life.
Cornish pixies weren't that hard, really... got it straight away because I imagined a bubble of air in front of my wand and that is what was pushing them into the cage.

Now potions... *sigh* failing my practice very often because I have mouse issues with Pottermore (in general) and that is key to potions... right now feeling like the polyjuice potion is light years away for me... we shall see.

Re: Pottermore v.12

Well, we got a brand-spanking new computer and Pottermore won't let me log in! I sent an e-mail, but of course, it hasn't been answered yet. I don't get why I can't log in, though, as I've done it on the computers at the library and elsewhere. I was really looking forward to trying the spells and such with new everything!

How disappointing! Which browser are you using? Have you tried different browsers?
