PDilemma, Kruss' advice worked really well for me. Once I tried it, the gnomes flew. Just make sure the gnomes face the hedge when you let go.

A whole bunch of Bertie Bott's Every Flavor beans scattered all over the room

Nothing in the Episode The Weasleys. or the Gnome one.

Chapter 4

Letters from school
The shopping list

Floo powder
Floo powder

I can't pick up the mask; I can get to the "hooray you found a mask!" but it won't let me click on "collect".

The site on a whole is running extremely slowly right now. I'll have to wait until I can get back to the US and play on a reliable internet connection :drama:

IceAlisa, The Pottermore Guide (http://ppottermoreguide.tumblr.com/tagged/book-2/) has been updated. That has a full list of collectables.

Thanks, AmyL! :) I was missing: rose thorns, horklump juice and hairpin. I actually forgot to mention all the other items I collected. :duh:

So I went book shopping and only got Standard Book of Spells, Grade 2 but am not feeling all these expensive Gilderoy Lockhart books. :shuffle:

Finally got them!! I am absurdly excited by this! :lol:

PDilemma and IceAlisa, so glad it worked for you. :)

Thank you for the hints. I never would have got past that in my life without it! Quite unskilled at things like that.

Me too, if it weren't for Kruss, I'd still be trying to throw gnomes and :wall:. Thanks again! :)

Any word when Ch. 5 will be available? I can't wait to brew new potions, provided book 2 gives us potions to brew--I think Polyjuice is definitely warranted. I just hope it doesn't take a whole actual month to brew it.

As is probably shocking to NO ONE, I am a proud Slytherin. Sssssssssssss.

I'm a horrible Slytherin; I can't make the cure for boils. :wuzrobbed Course, I am a Slytherin, so I should be more about the giving of curses than taking them away. :drama: I need help from some goody two-shoes Hufflepuff.

I'm AccioDawn28899 My wand is a Dogwood with a Phoenix Feather and "surprisingly swishy." Why, yes, I did giggle like a seventh grade boy.

I finally managed it after several tries. Keep holding down the mouse button until the gnome swings around a few times and gets faster. Release it when it's swinging to the right towards the hedge.

If you release too soon, though, you'll send it right into the hedge. I drowned a few in the pond. :/

Not only do they release too soon, they LAUGH at you. I'll show them. I'm a pureblood. Well, OK, I'll make baseless threats and hope some random Death Eater will back them up, but I'll sneer really, really hard. Or make a potion. I've only broken one cauldron today. :shuffle:

This is why I can't play video games. I'm too invested. I'm trying to sneak playing this at work. Do you know how hard it is to de-gnome while writing a press release?

The gnomes laugh? I thought they kind of sink listlessly into the pond. You've come a long way, Matry, in such a short time. :eek: You've just been sorted and you are already de-gnoming! :eek:

I am MidnightGlow21201, btw.

I just signed up for this - I finally got around to re-read the first 3.5 books ( where I stopped years ago), and just started book 5.

Enjoying them, so I thought I would sign up - I am FlightAuror18821. Tryingto figure out how it all works :)
