Follow Ron and Hermione after going
to the Gryffindor Dormitory to get a few items. They will lead you
the to Moving Staircase Area.
Just like the previous level,
this area will also be visited several times. For this particular
level, you have to attend Lockhart's class on the third floor. You
can either go straight there, or you can explore the area first
to get used to the place. There are several floors to this area
and i will list all the areas accessible at the moment.
Level one: if you go downstairs,
you will see alot of students. You will also see two students with
beans in their hands. These are the students who can trade with
you. If you wish to trade, go for it. There will be a chest on the
far right side corner with a Bronze Card
(3/50), as well as a save game book on the other side.
Level 2: You are on it :) This is
the entrance to the moving staircase area.
Level 3 (Floor 1): View a cutscene,
where you will meet Nearly Headless Nick, the Gryffindor ghost.
He will show you a locked door which is where you will get your
gold cards. But you first need to collect all 40 silver cards. After
the cutscene, use your spell on the two cauldrons. Before leaving
this area, look to the right as soon as you get out of that room.
There will be a passageway there containing a chest. There is also
goodies above you, but you will need to learn the diffindo spell
first. So continue.
Level 4 (Floor 2): As you enter,
there will be 2 boxes on either side which contain beans. Now look
to your left. There will be a switch that takes you to secret area
with chest. Beyond is a long corridor that leads to Transfiguration
and Charms class, as well as Moaning Myrtle's Bathroom. All these
areas are not opened yet, but there is a cauldron all the way at
the end of the hall. Now return to the staircase.
Level 5 (Floor 3): (For me, I usually
skip this level first and head for the 6th floor to get more goodies
there, then return here) This is the area where the class is. If
you wish to explore some more, continue onto the next staircase.
If not, here is what happens. As you approach, [cutscene] Harry
sees two Slytherins talking and one of them accidently knocks over
a vase. They both run while Mrs. Norris, Filch's cat, watches. Harry
is about to get out of there when Filch, the caretaker, comes and
accuses him of breaking the vase. Harry then hears voices and Filch
lets him off with a warning. You will see Ron in the distance.
But before you go to him, look to the left wall. Use your spell
on it to open passageway. This will lead you to your first enemy,
a gnome. If you dont know what
to do with them, then you can go to Lockhart's class first. If you
want to get rid of it now, just hit it with your Flipendo spell.
Once its knocked out, approach it and Harry will automatically pick
it up by the foot. Just approach the small hole on the wall and
use [spacebar] to throw the gnome into it. If you do it right, you
will see beans. If not, keep at it and you will get it eventually.
There is also a chest. Now return and head for class. Before you
enter, look to the right for a crack in the wall. This is another
secret area with chest. Now you can enter Lockhart's class.
Level 6 (Floor 4): There will be
switch to your right, which is not useful yet because you need to
learn the spell for it. So go forward and you will notice two paintings
on either side of you. Use your spells on the left one to reveal
a small area with beans and chest. Now go forward and use spell
on statue to get more beans. To your right, you will enter the hospital
wing. Here, notice 4 painting on each corner of the room. Hit all
four with your flipendo spell to open a secret passageway in the
floor, which contains a chest with a Silver
Card (3/40). Now continue on and to your left, you will
see a gargoyle. Light it with lumos spell and run down the stairs
to your right. Notice above the stairs a step appears. Jump onto
it and it leads you to a chest with a Bronze
Card (4/50), Now continue down the stairs and you will
enter Ms. Pompfrey's office. There is a chest near her desk with
another Bronze Card (5/50).
Also get beans from the two cauldrons. Now go back to the moving
