You guys move fast, I felt like I didn't sign off for very long. I'm trying to sign in with my Kindle but it doesn't want to log on on there.
I'm MidnightMagic29812, and taking my sweet ass time in Chapter 2 of book one.
I've read the first book a zillion times but I never remember which potions are the right ones; the one to go forward and the one to go back. I worked the riddle and got it right on the first try! Yay me!
I'm almost done going through the story, which makes me a bit sad b/c I know we'll have to wait until the next book is ready...
^^ You know it!!
So I finished the first book! I absolutely love this site! I'm actually happy the other books aren't up yet; I'd never get anything done at work! I know I'll be dueling and mixing potions until they get the other ones up...
Question: where do you find the other spells from. My Spells section says I know 14 spells but I can only perform 3 (incendio, flippendo and the bogie curse). Do you have to reach a certain amount of dueling points before you can do others? Or did I miss the spells somewhere? Help!
The list of spells shown before you duel has a drop down arrow at the bottom. Click on the arrow, and you'll see the other spells.
I've only got two spells books: Dark Forces: A Guide to Self-Protection and Standard Book of Spells (Grade 1). 7?! I can only practice 3 spells!
I must have missed one. Crap!
I guess I need to go back and look for it...
The chapter in the library has a lot of books to collect. I'd start rechecking there.
I just did...dragged the mouse over every single shelf. I'm pretty sure I got all of the ones in there...
ETA: Just found it! It was the one on the bench at the Christmas feast. I could have sworn I collected that one. I probably did but my computer at work runs the site kinda weird...I constantly have to refresh it. Maybe something happened when I clicked on it at work or something. Whatever! I'm off to practice!
Well I'm as epically bad as Harry at Potions because I can't practice brew this cure for boils to save my life.
I succeeded in brewing herbicide. (Kinda ironic for a Hufflepuff, no? )
That horklump juice bottle is THE worst! It's so hard to stand up and in the end I just gave up and chucked it aside in the interest of time. Of course, the same went for the flobberworm mucus, and I could hardly see what was going on on my workbench for all the green plumes of smoke coming up.
Also, I would like to quote the PhD chemist on making cure for boils:
"...besides, where's the inert atmosphere? and i didn't even add a stir bar and there's no stir plate. what is this crap?"
ETA: After succeeding with cure for boils in 3 tries, he went to tackle forgetfulness potion but then got angry with his slow cauldron, bought a copper cauldron, grumbled that it was still too slow, and gave up, presumably to go mix up some real potions.
mkats, that is hilarious.
I think it may have been my 6th attempt that I finally did everything correctly and didn't run out of time. YEESH.
Also my wand is cypress with unicorn hair, and I was placed in Gryffindor. According to Pottermore, I am hella super self-sacrificing and brave, what with my cypress wand and house placement. I would've thought I would be Hufflepuff or Slytherin.
Thanks for the cauldron CynicElle, I'm sure I'll blow it up soon. I FINALLY have a successful Awakening potion! I'm thinking about trying the poison antidote, but I need to give myself a little mental health holiday before I get started on another one.
The duels finally work again! Now I need to go poke a badger with a spoon...
You all are collecting so many house points off of my inability to do spells.
