Galleons in Pottermore Book 1 and Where to Find Them

Image by PotterWikki
Some of the Potterheads from my house said that once you ran out of Galleons—from constant buying of potion ingredients or equipments (telescope, brass scale, etc.), they will regenerate, much like the other potion ingredients that you can collect throughout the whole book one. I’m not sure though how accurate this information is since I still have around 300+ Galleons. I try not to spend that much galleon because there is no assurance if Pottermore will still give you that same amount in the next book. According to some, Pottermore will give you 500 Galleons when it opens its second book. Yet, no word of it can be found on the Pottermore Terms and Conditions.  So, yeah. Just be careful AND be RESOURCEFUL. A lot of potterheads are not that active so they tend to just buy stuffs and give it away to those who will really brew potions. Of course, it’ll help if you give it to your own house. But be warned: Do not cheat. Do not create another account just so you can give your galleons—in the form of potion ingredients—to the house you’re most loyal with. I just feel like in the spirit of fairness, we should all abide by the things that we were given. Let me tell you a little trivia.

I have read all the books of HP and if you do too, you will know how JK built the reputation of Gryffindor. Slytherin chooses pureblood, they are brave but up to a certain point—they’ll save themselves if it will ever comes to that, and they tend to practice evil magic; Ravenclaw chooses smart witches and wizards, values fairness, snobbish or some would say know-it-all; Hufflepuffs chooses those who chooses them, they don’t have the same qualifications as the other three and they love all the magical folks (reason for them to be viewed as the lowest of the three houses) and Gryffindor, the mighty Gryffindor, brave to the point of being heroic, will stand up behind his friends, crowd favorite, tends to disregard rules and I think JK somehow added the ingenious quality along the way. When I was reading the first HP book at the age of 11, I unconsciously was favoring Gryffindor to be my house. And as a result, I was totally disappointed to be put in Ravenclaw. But along the way, I realized how lucky I was to be in that house. Everybody is so kind and they’re helping each other and I dunno, I feel like I truly belong. :)

Pottermore Shop Now Opens!

Click the picture to visit Pottermore Shop

I know, I know. I haven't been that up to date with the current happenings of Pottermore but here it is, Pottermore recently opened their e-shop where you can buy ebooks of all the HP books. It's in English, French, Italian, German, and Spanish. :)

Pottermore Now Open to EVERYONE!

For the lack of something to do, I visited Pottermore, and viola! They are now accepting new wizards and witches! AMAZING! Although I have already my beta account, I still get excited for the other billion fans of HP.  And no, I'm not changing Houses-and some do-which I think is unfair and not true to what house they should belong. GO RAVENS! Let's win the housecup! :)

Don't forget to add me up. My username is FelicisStar3. :)

Pottermore Update

It’s been a while since I visited Pottermore. I stopped brewing and visiting Pottermore. As bad as it may sound to come out from a fan of Harry Potter, I’m still going to say it. I’M BORED. There. I said it. Finally. Now people are gonna hate me for it. There aren’t any changes or improvement at all. I think that the new stuff that ever happened during the whole time that I was in hiatus was them offering e-books.

I just think that the whole beta thing is taking so long that we (beta testers) can’t move on to the next book unless it’s open to the public. The worst part was that they kept on saying that it will open in this month and then it won’t and then they would announce again that the long wait is over, then it’s not gonna open again. I mean, come on. I can access the site but I still get pissed whenever they do that. How much more to those that have not won the Magic Quill Contest. I felt cheated. HAHAHA! That was a strong word. But uhm, yeah, I feel like they should figure out when the dates should really be and stick to it.

I have no doubt that they are doing the best that they can but I see no improvement. I still get the lousy “Pottermore is currently unavailable. Please come back later and try again”—the purple screen of death. UGH. And they said that they will be opening this early April. Hmm. I wonder when the next post will be saying that they have postponed giving access to other people.

Then I was worried that there will be a major catastrophe going on when the site goes public. They had a hard time letting people in before—beta time—how much more this April that there are billions of people who’ll probably be registering.

Let’s just hope for the best. Having said all that, I’m still grateful that they created Pottermore. And I know that they are doing the best that they can to improve it further. Just my two cents.

Books in Pottermore and Where to Find Them

As an avid fan of Harry Potter, I did my homework. Although I have already told you that I won't be telling you how to solve/find hidden objects on the Pottermore adventure, I decided to help you now SINCE I had a hard time finding some of them myself. So..without further ado, let me present you the hidden books (chocolate frogs and my Galleons are not yet completed) in Pottermore Book One: Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.

Chocolate Frogs in Pottermore and Where to Find Them

I'm not sure how many chocolate frogs all in all but I got 11. I googled and some said it's only 11 on the first book but I'm still not sure. Anyway, this post is dedicated in helping you find your own chocolate frogs as you go on and experience Pottermore. Let's begin...

Potion Ingredients and Where to Find Them

One type of the objects that you can find in Pottermore are the potion ingredients (my hidden objects are not yet done :P). As a Ravenclaw, I will help you in finding these ingredients :)

Hidden Objects in Pottermore Book One and Where to Find Them

I have completed the list of hidden objects that you can find in Pottermore book one. And they are as follows:

alarm clock - zoom once to have a clear view of harry's cupboard, hover your mouse on the lamp switcher to turn on the light; chapter 2 moment 1

Tips in Brewing Potion Pottermore

Now that I have completed the Pottermore book one, I decided to brew potions for additional house points. I have—in all difficulty—brewed 5 potions. I’m still having problems with the Forgetfulness Potion. I don’t know why but the system kept on saying that I did something wrong—like allegedly putting the lavender in the wrong mortar when THERE IS ONLY ONE MORTAR there! GRRRRR! Anyway, I’ve learned my lesson and the frustration that comes with brewing potion is natural. What I will be posting here are some tips that you will hopefully find helpful as you brew your own potions. It's a bit wordy but I'd say it's comprehensive. Hope you'll stick around. Here it goes…
