-----MINI SHIELD LOCATIONS-----

-HOGWARTS EXTERIOR-
1. From the starting point, go forward and then turn left at a flight of stairs going down. At the bottom of the stairs, go towards an opening leading down to some cauldrons and brick walls. Once you are standing in the first square, use the cauldron and destroy the wall on the left. Enter the second square and destroy the remaining wall. Walk into the third area and use the cauldron to destroy the fountain. Once the fountain is destroyed, it will reveal a Mini Shield. Use [i]Accio[/i]  to retrieve it.

2. From the fountain, go forward, destroying walls as you go, until you come to a wall concealing a salamander. The mini shield is in with it.

3. After facing the salamander, destroy the wall behind it and turn right, heading towards the statues representing the four Houses. Destroy Gryffindor's Lion statue to receive the mini shield.

4. After facing the salamander mentioned in point three [3], destroy the wall behind it and turn left down the walkway where you'll come to an area containing three salamander fires. Turn left and go behind a fountain. From there, use the nearby cauldron to destroy the tower pillar behind the salamander fire to get another mini shield.

5. From the starting point, go straight and follow the path. You'll eventually come to a folk. Take the left path downstairs and follow the path until you come to a large block which you will need to position at the end of the path up against a wall. Climb up and you will see a large pond. Go to the other side of the pond and stand at the water’s edge. Use [i]Accio[/i]  to summon the mini shield towards you.

6. Starting from position mentioned above, turn around and you will see a gate with a huge fire behind it. Enter and walk over to the fire. Here you can either summon the mini shield or put out the fire and then walk up to the mini shield.

7. After getting the shield mentioned above, you will see a large block in a garden bed. Move it to the garden bed of soil across from it. It will have pots on one side. Climb up into the garden bed, then up onto the block, then climb up onto the platform. Once this is down, lower the drawbridge and cross. The mini shield is next to another block.

8. Starting from the folk mentioned in point five [5], take the right path and follow the blue bean trail. At the end you'll come to a drawbridge. Cross it, defeat the erkling, lower the next drawbridge and enter the area beyond. That is where the mini shield is.

9. From the position of the mini shield mentioned above, cross one of the two drawbridges moving forward from the area, fight off the erklings, heading towards the fire. Take the stairs to the right, where you will see a Dark Detector and three erklings. From the Dark Detector, go left and before you head up the stairs, turn right to get the mini shield.

10. This is most likely the first mini shield one would get. From the starting point, go straight until you get to the stairs mentioned in point one [1]. The mini shield is in the middle of the path in front of them.




-FORBIDDEN FOREST-
These Mini Shields can be acquired on your first play through.

1. From the starting point, turn right and you will see the mini shield behind two rocks.

2. From starting point, head straight until you get to the first bubotuber. Catapult it and follow the left path until you come to a second bubotuber. You will see that it is before some mushrooms with a mini shield amongst them.

3. Across from the mini shield mentioned above, you will find another mini shield on a stump.

4. From the above position, head straight where you will come across more mushrooms and some dugbogs. Defeat them and then go over to the ledge on the right and climb up. Walk along the platform you are on until you come to a cauldron. Look into the distance and you will see three bubotubers in a row with a mini shield behind them. Use the cauldrons to destroy the bubotubers and retrieve the mini shield.

5. Leave the bubotubers and continue down the main path where the Horntail will continue to set fire to a patch of bubotubers. Avoid that path by climbing up the platform next to them. There you will find the next mini shield.

6. After the cut scene with the dragon, follow the path until you come to a Starting Point star. Take the left path and you will eventually come to a broken tree surrounded by fire with a mini shield.

7. From the previous mini shield location, head forward and you will see a group of bubotubers across from some mushrooms. The mini shield is behind the mushrooms.

8. After fighting the salamanders, head into the ruins and as you follow the path you will find another mini shield.


These Mini Shields can be acquired after your first play through.


9. In point four [4] I mentioned a location with dugbogs and a ledge you needed to climb up. Start at that location and you will notice that an area that was blocked off in the first play through is now open. Go to that area and you will find the mini shield and a Blast-Ended Skrewt.

10. You will find it in the area the Horntail is being contained in. It is just before the dragon statue.




-PREFECTS' BATHROOM-
These Mini Shields can be acquired on your first play through.

1. Leave the bathroom and go straight until you see a drawbridge. Cross it and go into the area beyond. You will see to big cooper things at the end of the area [from this point on they're just going to be referred to as water pressure meters]. Use the cauldron to destroy the one on the right.

2. Leave the area mentioned above and head over to the area blocked by pipes. Destroy the pipes with the cauldron and head straight. When you get to the edge of the platform jump off and turn left, climb up the ledge, turn left again and climb up to the next platform. Lower the drawbridge, and then use the cauldron to destroy the water pressure meter next to the drawbridge.

3. Turn off the tap and head along the path that was previously block by steam. Lower the draw bridge, climb up and destroy the water pressure meter.

4. After turning off the two taps and destroying the pipe below, go back the way you came. Be warned that you will have to face Erklings as you go. When you come to some stairs leading down, you will see a ledge leading up to another water pressure meter, cauldron and fish statue. Climb up and destroy the water meter.

5. Stand next to the cauldron that you used in the point above, pick it up a slowly push it away from you. You should see below you a water pressure meter. Drop the cauldron on it to reveal a Mini Shield.

6. Still standing next to the cauldron, do the exact same thing, except this time you need to go out further. There is a water pressure meter across from the one you just destroyed containing a Mini Shield.

7. After defeating the first lot of salamanders, continue down the path. Pull down the draw bridge and use the cauldron to destroy the water pressure meter opposite it.

9. From your starting point, take the first path on your right - it is the path with the tap. Follow it until you get to a folk. Take the left folk. Follow it all the way to the drawbridge.
