    Ah Ravenclaw. Seems a common outcome here at FSU.

    Damn it, Pottermore - you've broken two of my staunchest rules that I've hung onto for the full two years I've worked here: not to access FSU at work, and not to play games at work.

    Currently brewing Sleeping Draught, again.

    Ok, how the hell do I "wave my wand" when making the Boils potion when I don't see my wand anywhere in the picture? What did I miss?

    It's laying on the table behind your ingredients. Just click on it.
    I'm going to twizzle into a triple axel and spiral out of it.

    Is anyone else having issues with the dueling page today? I've got like 4 invites to duel and when I go to the page it says

    Sorry, there was a problem with this page
    Maybe someone has cast a spell over this page because it's not loading correctly. Please come back and try again.
    Rats!! I really wanted to see if I'd gotten any better today...doubtful, but still. I guess I'll give it a while and check back later.

    Thanks to VineFrog819 aka Jobelle for the gift! I didn't have any time to play on the site once I got home yesterday so I didn't get around to sending gifts, but I'll make sure to send ya something nice.

    Can I just say I'm happy we have this thread here. It sucks that you can't PM on the site (though I do understand why), but it's cool that we can talk/comment/lament our terrible potions/dueling here.

    Ha! I'm a hufflepuff too, and i cracked up reading all the parts about the badger because I kept thinking of Honey Badger!!! I'm definitely proud to be hufflepuff now!
    Whoot! Another Hufflepuff! And yeah, Honey Badger Dont' Care! That ought to be our motto: Hufflepuff Don't Care!

    I did find that, but now I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong. Do I have to stop waving it after I start? I'm a fail at Potions thus far.

    It took me about 10 tries before I got it right.

    For the boils potion, make sure you're following the instructions. I'm a dummy and was dumping all of the ingredients in at once instead of going by the book. The only thing you add is the 4 measures of snake fangs after you've ground them up. Then heat the cauldron for 10 secs. If you've done it right, after you wave the wand the notice should pop up and say the potion needs to brew.

    I did the boils potion over and over, and turned out I wasn't using snake fangs the whole time .

    I also found out the time you take reading the instructions can time you out for brewing.

    Which are the snake fangs, the little white things in the bag?

    And I always run out of time...

    And where are all the other Gryffindors here? What is it with Ravenclaw?

    It took me a couple of times to realize that I didn't have to wave the wand. If you just click on it once it does the waving on its own.

    I found the pictures of the ingredients on the left hand side of the recipe book to be very helpful
    I'm going to twizzle into a triple axel and spiral out of it.

    It's the bag closest to the cauldron, with white pointy things. The other bag with green stuff is something else (and not used in this potion).
    And I always run out of time...
    Once you've done it a few times, don't bother reading the instructions--just start in on it and you won't run out of time anymore.
    And where are all the other Gryffindors here?

    Thanks for the help - going to give it another try. I've always been real good at chemistry, but this is different.

    Which also means that we can challenge all those well-behaved, studious Ravenclaws...

    Hey, I've gotten a bit better at dueling! I've actually won a few today!

    Anybody wanna duel? You have to challenge me; I'm at work and for some reason when I try to scroll down through my list of friends it kills the entire page.

    Nailed my boils cure too! I'm doing better today

    I found this site helpful when I was first trying to figure out Potions: http://dejiki.com/2011/08/brewing-po...in-pottermore/ Some of the information might have changed between beta testing and now, but I think the basics are still correct.

    I went to challenge you and then realized that it wouldn't work because we are in the same house

    So any word on when the rest of the books will be up and running?

    I'm KnightOwl5950 - but I have no wand and I can't figure out how to get past Diagon Alley. Obviously I am one of the dumber potential wizards....

    Have you picked up your shopping list - it's lying on the street.

    I challenged you

    My web connection is fritzing, and it's messing up my dueling

    You can challenge--it just won't give you points. It's like a friendly practice duel. Gil-Galad did that with me to show me just how pathetic I was at it all
