Just beginning your journey around Hogwarts? Check out our beginner’s guide which gives you tips on things that you should look out for on your travels.
Though you have plenty of opportunity to wander around the house exploring you only need to follow the see-through ghost blocks that you’ll see in every area in order to progress in the campaign. These dots will lead you to the next significant task.
Right from the start make a visual note of tasks that you can’t carry out right now. As you progress you’ll unlock more spells and be able to back track on yourself to complete these areas. For example: Hagrid is strong so he can pull levers and chains, but Harry can too once he gets access to a strength spell. You’ll be able to access areas in Free Play mode once you’ve completed them in the story.
Use Ron’s Rat, Scabbers, to access drainpipes to gain extra studs and open up access to new areas.
Cast spells on paintings. You’ll either receive studs or the ghostly figures will help you solve a puzzle.
You solve the bookcase puzzles just like a game of “Simple Simon.” Just follow the pattern given.
Look out for special Red and Gold bricks. Red Bricks allow you to unlock extras in Diagon Alley, whereas Gold Bricks can be used in the LEGO Builder to make your own creations.
If you can’t get through an area and can’t work out what you need to do cycle through the characters – they all possess different skills. Then cycle through their spells one at a time and cast them around the area.
The invisibility cloak allows you to sneak past prefects to access new areas!
Blue studs are worth the most – 1000 points. Silver is worth 10 and Gold is worth 100. Grab Blue studs as a priority.
You need to pour a variety of ingredients into black cauldrons (usually three ingredients.) You’ll see what’s needed because their icons will be hovering over the pot. Some are very well hidden, but they’ll all be in that area where the cauldron is. Cast spells at objects at random and you’ll be surprised where they’ll turn up.
Look out for Crest pieces! If you gather four on each level you’ll unlock a Gold brick.
