Re: Pottermore v.10

About ingredients in wrong container ...

Spoiler: show
I just had it happen to me when working on the sleeping draught, that it told me I had put the lavender in the wrong container. I know I did not do that, but I think I accidentally bumped one of the sprigs against the cauldron before dropping it into the mortar. Maybe that made some of it go into the cauldron. I tried again making sure to lift all ingredients properly across the cauldron, and it worked fine.

Potions don't seem to work for me on Saturdays. I would recommend avoiding them on the weekends.

Spoiler: show
I had the same issue with the same potion you had, tried it again, it told me to return in 95 or so minutes, and when I came back, it made me start over. I failed on purpose, to stay out of the potions loop. So I tried another potion, returned after 2 hours, and it wanted me to start over. I had to fail that one, as well. And I can brew 3 to 4 potions a day with no issues.

At first I thought: yeah sure.. but now I don't know anymore

Spoiler: show
I was busy at the second part of the sleeping draught. Did everything as described, no glitch or whatsoever. Received the: congratulate page! Went back , only to see an owl telling me: sorry, sleeping draught failed to brew. You have not been awarded any housepoints. Come again?


So that's it. I'm done with Potions. If the messages are going to contradict themselves it ain't no fun anymore waiting so long, when you think you've got 11 points while you receive none at all.

Re: Pottermore v.10

Hey, guys. How are you? Anyone having issues with potion brewing today?
Spoiler: show

I brewed one incorrectly and it destroyed my cauldron. So, I got a new one and started over. Now, whenever I try to brew it gives me the standard wait 80 minutes...0% message...But then it doesn't take. The site takes me back to the Potions page and it's not brewing. I don't know why. It shows my cauldron available to use and when I went to it I was able to brew any potion ( and if my potion was brewing it should have shown up as 2% brewing or whatever and showed my cauldron in use). What's going on?


Ahhh! I see others have having issues.lol. Should have read the thread. Although, I don't think anyone is having my issue. Any suggestions?

Re: Pottermore v.10

Hi everyone,

finally got into Beta, only to encounter a fairly nasty problem:

Spoiler: show
I`m in Diagon Alley, buying items of the shopping list. I followed the list, that anybody could see because all but the wand is crossed through. But if I look in my trunk, I have only 5 objects and exactly 5 books. My galleons budget is exactly as it should be after byuing all thats crossed out.
I waited a couple of days, nothing has changed. Anybody else with the same problem? I can`t continue because it says, I must buy everything of the list before I could buy something other.

Clear the temporary files and cookies in your computer. That way Pottermore will refresh to the correct view of the page when you go back to it. What you are seeing may be a frozen or outdated image.

Re: Pottermore v.10

Ugh. I still can't brew potions.

Spoiler: show

Why does it not show up as brewing after I've completed the first phase? I've tried like 5 times now. So disappointed, Pottermore.

I noticed the same thing. Not to worry.. They're not lost. One book goes to your Potions section, 2 to your Spells section.

Same here. Plus, I've lost two cauldrons in the last 24 hours - hoe the Hell was I supposed to know that "2" means "four" in Pottermorespeak?

Re: Pottermore v.10

I've had those problems as well so didn't waste time on potions this weekend. They have to fix quite a few bugs in Potions before I want to risk my cauldron again.

Re: Pottermore v.10

At least we know we're not alone. Hopefully Pottermore is implementing a fix quickly.

Re: Pottermore v.10

It's too late for me, Hes... I'm hooked!

A lot of people in Ravenclaw Common Room have been claiming same problems. Moderation's been working full-time, too...

Re: Pottermore v.10

I am having the various potions issues from time to time, and have found that a reboot usually fixes it. Microsoft.

Means everything is fine? Where can I find that Potions and Spells section?

And than there is another place for the cauldron too?

Thank you for your help!

And thanks SIP! I`ve tried that already, but nothing changed.

You will find your cauldron in the potions section later on. If everything on your list is crossed off, including the pet, there should be an arrow on the ground about half way down Diagon Alley pointing to the right. If you click on that, you get to the south side of DA, where you find Ollivanders.

Edit: Potions and spells are on the top of the screen, to the right of the Pottermore logo.

Yep! You're on track. Yep, Spells and Potions will be unlocked later. Also, all your cauldrons and ingredients are kept in the Potions sections too.

Regarding the heating, I've been able to get by fine with using the red button to heat up quickly, and then using the orange and off buttons to modulate the temperature.
Same happened to me with the VS and the SD, but I'm only ever told the reason for failure was that I put in too much Standard Ingredient, which I know has never occurred.
