Pottermore, CoS Chapter 12 (what I’ve found so far…)

DISCLAIMER: This is not exactly a live blog and it’s definitely not a Finder’s Guide. It’s what I’ve found so far. There’s also probably some stuff I’m missing. :)

Here’s what I’ve found so far (DO NOT READ IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO BE SPOILED!)…


Scene 1 (“Dumbledore’s Office”)
The key for Zoom Levels will be found at the bottom of the post.

  • Zoom 1: I didn’t find anything. :(
  • Zoom 2:
    • COLLECT Dragon Blood on desk
    • COLLECT Lemon Sherbet on desk
  • Zoom 3: On Mouseover, can make Fawkes cry, can move scales, can get a light to shine behind the door to the cabinet

Scene 2 (“The Potion is Ready”)

  • Only 1 Zoom Level. So at Zoom 1:
    • COLLECT Lacewing Flies
    • COLLECT Bertie Bott’s Overcooked Cabbage-Flavoured Bean
    • UNLOCK “Polyjuice Potion” (JKR-Exclusive content)
    • Clicking on the cups makes them fizz (I think you can do this only one time for each cup, and then you have to re-load the scene)

Scene 3 (“The Slytherin Common Room”)
The key for Zoom Levels will be found at the bottom of the post.

Okay, I’m a Slytherin, and I did not need to use Polyjuice to open the door to the Slytherin Common Room. What about those of you who are NOT Slytherins? Did you have to use Polyjuice? If so, can you use the Comments to describe the process (step-by-step) that you had to go through to gain access to Slytherin? Thanks!

  • Zoom 1: See brick wall.
    • Double-click to see Slytherin Common Room through an opening in the brick wall.
  • Zoom 2 – Enter the Slytherin Common Room.
    • COLLECT Montague Knightly Chocolate Frog (in drawer below Chess table). Can also make chess pieces move on mouseover.
  • Zoom 3:
    • COLLECT book Nature’s Nobility: A Wizarding Genealogy (on couch).
    • CLOSER LOOK at Daily Prophet article concerning enquiry into Arthur Weasley’s enchanting of a Muggle car.
    • COLLECT 5 Galleons from the Mantelpiece. (Thanks Annie!)

Key to Zoom Levels:
I am using the conventions I’ve seen used elsewhere when discussing Pottermore zoom levels:

  • Zoom 1 = the original zoom level.
  • Zoom 2 = zoom in one level from Zoom 1.
  • Zoom 3 = zoom in two levels from Zoom 1.
  • Zoom OUT 2 = zoom out one level from Zoom 1.
  • Zoom OUT 3 = zoom out two levels from Zoom 1.
