A Jinxed Broom

Year 1, Chapter 3

You'll only control Ron and Hermione. Raise the flag to the left, then go downstairs. Raise another flag, then get rid of the blocks blocking your way. Fly across the gap and go downstairs to find another three flags on the edges, from left to right. Fix the tubes using WiLe,  then send Ron's pet to reach the platform above.

After causing some ruckus, the platform containing large lego bricks will fall down. Arrange it so you can jump and reach the Blue crest piece. Arrange the bricks again so you can reach the upper platform. Destroy the stuff blocking your path then use WiLe to assemble them. Solve the cabinet pattern puzzle and the axe will clear the path for you.

Continue then raise the last two flags to get the Red crest piece. Use Ron's pet to reach the Harry (Girl Disguise) character token under the stairs. Shoot the orange cover on the wall, then shoot the painting to remove the prefect. Assemble the lego bricks again then go up the ladder.

Solve the cabinet pattern puzzle, then use WiLe to lift the pieces up and to connect them to the wall to create footholds. Create the stairs using the pieces to the left. You can't open the silver cabinet for now so continue up. Destroy the final barricade and continue through to complete the level.

Unlock the chest beside the pet tunnel to get the character token Fred (Quidditch)
After arranging lego bricks to reach the upper floor, destroy the silver obstacle in the middle to save the student in peril. Destroy the pixies to the left, then shoot the chest to obtain the Yellow Crest piece.

After getting rid of the prefect and before going up the ladder, do not destroy the box. You need to jump around the barricade. Use Crucio on the barrel to get the Yellow Crest piece.


Yellow Crest


Go up the ladder then shoot the cabinet using a dark arts character to obtain the character token of Marcus Flint.

Follow the ghost guide, then fix the bridge. Head to the other side for a scene. You'll be back in the Great Hall. There's not much to do here for now so return to your rooms for more scenes and to start the next story chapter.

That happened to me, there is a house crest in it, and if it doesn't open up, then you can't complete the game.

Jump around the wooden barricade on the upper area to get it. You need to walk around a huge hole in the ground the jump down onto the Blue Crest. Hope this helps :3

The easiest way is when you get reducto replay follow the spiders. There is a chest by Aragog.

I am finding on the PS3 version the chest with the yellow crest piece (the one held by pixies) does not drop to the ground after the pixies are removed, preventing the chest from being opened.

Any suggestions to resolve this or prevent it from happening?

How can I use a dark arts character to open the grey cabinet? I'm only in control of Ron and Hermione and can't find a way to change characters. And there is no polyjuice potion in this level...

Dont try and build the blocks to get blue crest - waste of time. Instead, after getting the green crest, follow the ledge to the far left, get the purple coin, then "drop down" on the blue crest - very easy.

I did it as McGonagall and turned her into a cat. Because her cat form is so slim, it's easy to jump off the ledge and jump right back on the other side. It only took me 2 tries!

I keep falling when I try to jump around the barrier, andi can't get over. I've tried with the Bloody Baron (ghost) but I can't get it with him either. Any ideas?

Use the blocks for the stairs to build a way toward the blue crest piece instead of toward the ledge. I used the yellow and green blocks. Jump off and you can hit the blue piece in the air.

Green Crest is at the end of the stadium after you zap the orange wall to reveal a picture. DO NOT GO UP THE LADDER TO THE NEXT ROOM!! Instead there are a few boxed there with a wooden fencing along the same ledge as the trapdoor was. You can try jumping AROUND with any character but I found it worked best with nearly headless Nick as he floats round. You will need a character with dark magic (ie lucius malfoy) to blow up the black trash can. You should have your green crest now Smile
