The good thing about this challenge
is that you can visit it as many times as you wish. After each
challenge, you will get a chance at a bonus level. So you need
to have a good time. I would recommend completing this challenge
twice because there are alot of areas which arent necessary, but
you should go because they contain wizard cards.
NOTE: The areas in red are the
ones that you can ignore on your second visit.
First, complete Lockharts challenge.
He will cast the symbol for rictusempra and you will see a bunch
of arrows. Just press the same arrow keys as they appear on the
symbol. You will need to do this 3 times. After that, you are
ready for the challenge.
Now this challenge is a bit
different than that of the first game. You are going to be timed
in this one, and the better time you have, the more time you will
have in the bonus room. So I would recommend getting the challenge
stars along the way, because they increase your timer quite a
First challenge: You will see a
firecrab. Use rictusempra spell to knock it on its shell. Then
use your flipendo spell to knock it into the switch on the floor.
Next area has two choices. You
knock the first firecrab onto its shell and push it into the switch
behind it. Make certain that when you do this, you are standing
on the foot plate in front of the crab. After you have knocked
the crab down, the floor will rise to the upper level. To your
right, there will be a chest with a Bronze
- or -
avoid the first firecrab and run to the slope to the left. This
will lead you to another firecrab. Knock it and pass it.
Get the chest from here with the card.
Challenge 2: The next area has
4 firecrabs and 2 snails. The firecrabs are in cages on all four
corners of the room. They will continouly shoot fire at you, so
it is better to get rid of them first. Go to each firecrab, knock
it over, and use flipendo to make it hit the switch on the far
side of the cage. When you do this, the cage will get blocked
so they cannot shoot fire at you. After you do this to all 4,
a chest will appear with a silver card
(4/40). Now, use rictusempra on the two snails and
knock them into the switches on the floor. This will release two
challenge stars (2/10 and 3/10).
Move the crates with the symbols to get to the stars.
Next area will
have two snails. (Second time: just pass
them) Knock them out with rictusempra
and push them into the switches. Be careful! These snails are
a bit more aggressive than the first game. If you are within range,
they will charge at you with alot of speed. So be careful. Once
they hit the switches, they will release some beans.
Next area is a
gnome. Hit it with your spell and then approach it. Harry will
automatically pick it up. Then use [spacebar] to throw it into
the hole nearby.
Go up the stairs.
Save your game. Notice a portrait of Lockhart. Use
your spell on it to open to a secret area with a chest.
Continue up the stairs and before the next challenge, notice to
your left is a chocolate frog and to your right, a chest with
a Bronze Card (7/50). Now
off to the next challenge.
Challenge 3: You
are in a small hallway with a challenge star at the end. As you
go for it, part of the hallway collapses in front of you and two
doors open on both sides containing firecrabs. Like before, use
rictusempra on both firecrabs. Then knock them into the switch.
I would recommend you first use rictusempra on both of them, THEN
throw them into the switch, or you will have one throwing fireballs
at you. After this, the hallway appears and you can collect your
challenge star (4/10).
Next area is with
snails again. Avoid them
or use rictusempra on them and knock them into the switches.
Challenge 4: Next
area has two firecrabs loose. Use rictusempra on both of them,
THEN knock them into the switches. This will make a stairway on
both sides of the room. First go to the left one. Hit cauldron
and firecrab. Then hit the portrait of Lockhart to find a secret
area with a gargoyle. Use Lumos spell to create an invisible wall
to your right, which contains a challenge
Then go to the
other stairway and collect another challenge
star (6/10). There is also a chocolate frog, and on
the wall behind it is a flipendo symbol switch. Hit it to open
to secret area containing a chest with a Silver
Card (5/40). Now, use your flipendo spell to knock
over the block that is in your way. To your
right, there will be a chest with a bronze
Challenge 5: Go
forward and down the stairs. You will enter a circular room with
3 doors and 3 switches. Notice on each door there is a picture
of Professor Lockhart. Also, above the doors are 3 wheels. The
switches in front of you move those. The point of this part is
to hit the switches so that the wheels move and the pictures on
the wheel match that on the door. When you match all three potraits
on each wheel to that on the door, the door will open.
First, open the
right and left door. Both of them will have a chest and a switch
on the floor. The two switches will lower a challenge
star (7/10). Then open the front door. Get beans from
cauldron and get onto the foot plate ahead. This will cause the
floor to go up to the upper level. Go right from here and you
will get a chest. To your left, there is a save game.
Next area has a
gargoyle statue and beyond that is a room with 2 snails. You can
just avoid this whole area. If you want
to get the secret area, you can light the gargoyle and pass the
snails and the wall to your right will be invisible with a chest
inside. Or if you want more beans. You can first use flipendo
on the two portraits of Lockhart to reveal a switch. Then knock
the two snails into the switch. Then use lumos on gargoyle and
go to the secret area.
Next area, you
will see a portrait of Lockhart to your right. Hit it to reveal
a passageway to a chest. Then continue on. There will be
a deep pit ahead, but as you get closer, you see there are small
ledges. Use them to get onto the other side. Use rictusempra on
the firecrab and knock it into the switch, which creates a path
somewhere else in this area. Beyond, hit cauldron and 2 snails.
Collect challenge star (8/10),
chocolate frog, cauldron, and chest with Bronze
Challenge 6: Again,
you are trapped with 2 firecrabs. Yet this time they are not in
cages. Like before, hit them both first with rictusempra, and
THEN knock them into the switches. Collect challenge
You will come into
a hallway. To your right, there will be
a chest with a Bronze card (10/50).
(If you have been following my walkthrough very carefully,
you should have 10 bronze cards by now. When this happens, you
receive an extra health stamina. So for every 10 BC's you get,
you will receive an extra health stamina. If you collect
all 50, you will have 6 health staminas, which isnt that bad).
Beware of a glitch
in the game for next part. I'm not certain if its just me or if
it happens to everyone. All i know is that i have played this
level a few times and it has happened every time. If you notice
to your right before the save game, you will see a flipendo symbol
on the wall near the ceiling. This will reveal a secret area with
a chest. Now here is where the bug comes in. When you try to open
the chest, the spell will not work. It will act as if the chest
is not even there. Now this is bad because in the chest is a silver
wizard card (6/40). The way that I have come past that
is that the next area is the last challenge. So when i approached
the next challenge, there was a cutscene. After that, i went back
to the chest and this time, the spell worked fine and i got my
This is a tower level. There are a total of 5 firecrabs in this
area, and you only need 4 to get to the completion star. There
is also a hidden area here, which leads you to the final challenge
star. There is a large pit in the middle of the tower floor which
will hold 4 crabs. First, knock 2 firebrabs into the pit. This
will lower the completion star, as well as the floor in the pit.
Now, jump into the pit yourself and hit the portrait of Lockhart
before the crabs get back up. Enter the secret passageway it makes.
Inside, climb the first staircase. You will see a portrait of
Lockhart again. Hit it and enter. You will find 2 foot switches.
Use them to open to a room with a gnome and a chest containing
a Silver Card (7/40). Then
continue on up the stairs and collect the last challenge
star (10/10). This will open a door and you will be
back into the tower. Now just make your way up the tower, knocking
firecrabs into the pit below. Just use rictusempra on them and
knock them down from where you are. They will fall into the pit
themselves. After 4 firecrabs are in the pit, the completion star
will be low enough. Just knock over the 5th firecrab so that it
wont bother you. Next, there will be moving blocks that may try
to push you off when you are jumping. Stay close to the edge and
you will be fine. When you get to the top, get the completion
star and you will be done with the challenge.
After the challenge,
you will follow a girl to the first weekly house point ceremony.
If you have the most points, you will get to go into the bean
