HINTS AND PLAYING TIPS

EASY WIZARD CARDS
One:
Go to the Burrow and Diagon Alley. Look for chests there for Wizard Cards.
Two: Go to the fourth floor. Look under every bookshelf. You should notice there is no wall under one of them. The path leads to three treasure chests, revealing Wizard And Witches Cards.
Three: Go to the fourth floor and look for a staircase that has no wall under it. It will say "Crawling" in the top corner. Go in it and explore to find two Wizard Cards and a cauldron for refilling your potion vial.
Four: Go Neville's games, especially Broom Racing, to get Wizard Cards. Note: You will have to pay Beans to participate in Broom Racing and Gnome Tossing, Gnome Dunking is free.
Five: In Ron's barn at the very beginning is a card on top of the rafters. To get it, you need to climb the chicken coop outside.

EASY DUEL WIN METHODS

One:
To defeat Malfoy and his gang easily in duels, let them shoot Flipendo at you. Next, use Expelliarmus to reflect it back. Keep playing this little "tennis" game until the magic ball is at the maximum size, then slowly move closer to the other person. This will make it more difficult, but you will confuse them. This works best on Goyle.
Two: When prefects come at you with Locomotmortis, hit them with Flipendo and they will stop in their tracks.
Three: First use Expellmarias until the orange ball is giant. When it is in the air heading for your opponent, use Diffindo before it hits so they cannot move away in time. Note: This may not always work.
Four: Use Expelarmus (the shield) to deflect the attack. Immediately after that, start charging Flipendo. Shoot flipendo either when it is full or when the deflected attack is halfway there, whichever occurs first. This will either cause the Flipendo to hit or the deflected attack to hit. Note: Hold the aim sight to lock the Flipendo spell on the enemy.
Five: When you are dueling, press L, cast the Knockaback Jinx twice and dodge the reflected spell. This will not work on Gargoyles, but is particularly useful against Draco Malfoy in Defense Against The Dark Arts or Slytherins.
Six: When you are dueling with people (and not statues), go to the back of the room then turn around. When your opponent strikes, hit it back. Go very close to the blue line but not or past it. Hit it when it returns to you and it will more than likely hurt your opponent. Repeat this as many times as needed.
Seven: Whenever you are doing a Wizard duel, there is an easy way to defeat your opponent. Launch a Flipendo Spell at your opponent immediately after you launch his spell back at him. He will not be expecting it. This does not work when you are dueling with a Gargoyle.
Eight: After you use your Expelliarmus spell to deflect the Flipendo attack, before the attack hits your dueling partner, use your Diffindo spell on them. This will cause them to fall down and get blasted by the Expelliarmus you just repelled, winning you the point.

Easy Bertie Blotts Every Flavor Beans

One:
When you exit of the Gryffindor Tower notice the object in the corner. Hit it with Flipendo and three Beans will appear. Go around the corner and walk at least three steps away. Return and cast Flipendo again to get three more Beans. Repeat this to get as many Beans as needed.
Two: Use the Nimbus 2000 Broomstick and fly above Hogwarts. Fly through the rings to get free Beans. A blue ring gives 10 Beans, a yellow ring gives 1 Bean, a red ring gives 3 Beans and a green ring gives 2 Beans.
Three: At the beginning at Ron's house is a tool chest in their barn. Every time it moves on its own means that you can shoot it with Flapendo to get more beans.
Four: Go to seventh floor. Go to the jar next to the picture. Shoot the jar three times. Either one or three beans should appear; or a pie. Walk as if you are leaving and go to the moose head. Go back to the jar and shoot to get more. Repeat this as many times as needed.
Five: Once you get the key to the Confiscated Items room, go in there and get your six Wizard Cards and your 200 Bean Bag. After you run out of Beans or are low on them, go back to the Confiscated Items room. The chest that had the 200 Bean Bag, is closed again. Reopen the chest and you will get a refill of 200 Beans.
Six: When you have the key to the Confiscated Items room, just save and reload and the 200 Bean Bag will be back. You can repeat this every time you need more Beans.
Seven: When you go outside of Hogwart's, go to the tree where you walk through a long hallway and Flapendo it to get as many Beans as needed.
Eight: Go to the Dueling Room and walk down the stairs. There should be someone that is standing to the left of the room. Go up to him and duel him. When you have defeated him, there will be another person standing next to him. Keep defeating the people until you reach the last person. When you have defeated the last person, duel him repeatedly until you have the desired amount of Beans. If the last person is too difficult to defeat, then go to the second to last person (to the left of the last person), and duel that person repeatedly.
Nine: On the second day (not night), go to the Quidditch Stadium and get an C, B, or A grade and keep your Nimbus 2000. During the day, you can get on your broom, go through some rings in the sky and get Beans, as follows. Note: If you can manage to fly through a ring slowly and turn around and speed up, you can go through that ring twice. This will not give you twice the beans, but two new rings will appear instead of one. It is possible to fly through a single ring up to four times, but it is very difficult: Gold Rings: 1 Bean, Red Rings: 2 Beans, Green Rings: 5 Beans, Blue Rings: 10 Beans.

Personal Requests and Notice Board

The Notice Board in the Gryffondor common room usually gives a location, but higher up as you near completion they start to give vague clues, such as "Could be anywhere on grounds". With personal requests, they do not ever really give you a clue, except the first one. However, the items are near the area in about a two acre search range.
Finding Lost Items: When in doubt, check Hagrid's Hut. Many of the lost items end up there.
3 Roots Needed: Search the left side of Hagrid's Hut, by the Herbology Center. From there, they all scatter (much like Neville's china set) behind Hagrid's Hut towards the Forbidden Forest. The person that wants these will give you the key to the Confiscated Items Room (six more cards and a bag to hold 200 Bertie Bott's Every Flavored Beans).
Lost Badge: Found on the Broom Flying Field, towards Hagrid's Hut and the Whomping Willow (still inside the Flying Court).
Lost Newspaper Article: Search the left side of Hagrid's Hut. Note: "Left" being if you were looking from his front door towards the castle (the side next to the Herbology Center).
Lost Wizards Hat: Found in a small patch of trees towards the Quiddich Court.
Neville's Crockery: Can be found close to the Flying Court and Hagrid's Hut. Up on a roof will be a multitude of his china set. Go about a fifteen to twenty five second flying trip from Neville (heading back).
Secretive Dragon Scale Gloves: The elusive gloves are by the lake, but not on land. They can be found just outside the Broom Flying lessons field, on the lakeside. You will notice a long strip is down low. On the far end are five torches (light with Incendio to get a Wizards Card), and in the middle somewhere should be the gloves.
Telescope: Located on the tower where you enter to go in the main entryway. It is on the far left.

DEFEATING HINTS
The Basilisk:
Grab the sword, but do not attempt to hit it when you get the first chance. When the basilisk gets very tall and green appears from its mouth, use the sword on the black diamond on his chest while he is up. To do that, make sure you lock on then attack. Continue to do this and he will be defeated soon. Note: Only attack him while his head is far above the ground.
The Bookcase: Flippendo him in the front repeatedly until you see him fall. You will then be able to pull the box to the end. Then, jump from pillar to pillar and you find the spell book. It will allow you to destroy Green Goop-A-Goop.
The Giant Mother Spider: To get to it, use your Lumos spell to light the floor and follow the trail of spiders. Unlike the book, the spiders that are not normal size will try to kill you. Attack them with Incendio. When fighting the Giant Mother Spider, do not try to hurt the spider itself. Instead, use your Incendio spell to burn the web it has attached to the various trees. When done, it will fall into the pit and you will slip in after it. In here, just run around until it rears its head and exposes its soft under-belly. It is the only part that is susceptible to second level magic. Note: It is best to not charge and use rapid firing to get a little extra damage.
The Giant Mother Spider 2: While fighting it, you may notice little sacks being dropped and suspended by webbing. Shoot them down with Flapendo and collect health and Bean power ups from Hedwig.
The Giant Spider: To defeat the Giant Spider in the Dark Forest, circle around him and cast Rictosempra. He will not shoot any spider webs at you.
The Washing Machine: Make sure you dodge it when it moves. When it opens its mouth, keep Flipendoing it. Note: It only gets hurt when the door is open. Repeat this and it will die down quickly.
The Whomping Willow: When the Whomping Willow starts to pound into the ground, hide in the corner where you entered its lair. The shock wave cannot reach you in here, unless you stray too far from it. Should you get hit, you should have refilled your potion Vile before you entered. Also, Hedwig will drop Cauldron Cakes and Beans for your aid. Note: Rapid firing technique is recommended. Lock on to the limbs after they finish pounding and fire a quick shot, then wait to lock onto the Willow's Eye. Then, fire repeatedly until it stops hurting him before running back to your hiding hole.

GENERAL HINTS AND PLAYING TIPS
Nimbus 2000 Broomstick:
On the second day of school, go to the Quidditch practice. Complete the training with a "B" or better rank to get the Nimbus 2000 flying broomstick. You can now fly anywhere around the school during the day. Note: You can only land on grass and cannot fly inside the school.
Lower Bean price: When you ask a student to trade a wizard card and he or she asks you for too many Beans, click on "No" move some steps back and ask again. The quantity of beans will be reduced.
Easy house points:
After returning from the Whomping Willow, head deep to your right when Professor Snape finishes scolding you. There, in a corner, you will find your first Notice Board Item. You can return it to the Notice Board before or after you go to the Restroom Shop the Weasley's set up, earning you the very first 10 points in the game, and possibly a Wizards Card.
Easy Sickles: Once you have collected your Standard Book of Spells (Grade 2) in Diagon Alley, you can cast Flipendo to break barrels and uncover Sickles that you can use to buy items such as Stink Pellets at Gambol and Japes.
Stink Pellets: After you leave the Burrow and have finished collecting Ginny's lost supplies, go around casting Perfect Flipendo's on all of the objects you can find. Collect the Sickles, if they appear. Once you have enough Sickles, enter Gambol and Japes. Purchase a 10-pack of Stink Pellets. These can be useful when facing enemies, or if you are caught by a Prefect after hours.
Bertie Botts Bean Bag (100 Bean capacity): Use the Skurge spell on a chest covered in ectoplasm behind a tapestry (you need the scissors spell) on the third floor, by the Defense against the Black Arts classroom.
Bertie Botts Bean Bag (200 Bean capacity): Gather every item for the students around Hogwarts (not the Notice Board). You have to actually find the people. The final person will give you a key to the confiscated items room. In there are six Wizards cards and the biggest Bertie Bots Bean Bag.
Sneaking around at night: When sneaking around at night, you need to get by many of the prefects. When you need to get by them, simply crawl under the bookcase to the left of the portrait that leads to the Griffondore common room. It leads through a secret passage that takes you to the fourth floor.
Avoiding ghosts: When you do not want to be hit by ghosts and lose all your items (Balloons, Beans, and sometimes Stink Pellets) just stand on the ledge until the specter nears you. Tap the Analog-stick so that you will fall and catch the ledge. When you are hanging, they cannot hit you and cause your items to go flying.
Escape Uppergraders: When you are going to get caught by an Uppergrader and he uses the Locomotomortis spell, use the shield spell to stop it and run away. If done correctly, he will say "Did any one see him?".
Escaping the Slytherins: When you are in the Slytherin common room and need to get out, hide behind the pillar on the right side and wait for the girl to pass. Next, go into the room on your left and stay behind the door. The girl will return and look around. She will not see you. After she walks away, run and jump to avoid being captured. As soon as you exit the room, go to your left. Once there, start running to the door to avoid being captured. This may take a few attempts, as there are many people waiting by the door. Run very fast instead of creeping there -- the Slytherins do not catch on very quickly that you are there.
Deduct points from Slytherin: When Hermione changes you into Goyle, go out at night and try to get caught by the Prefects (the people that patrol the halls). When you do, Slytherin will get 5 house points deducted. You may repeat this process a few times, but after awhile this will stop.
Expelliarmus Challenge: Use your spell that cuts down tapestries and ropes on the spiked ball. Walk up close to the edge and hold your trigger button, charge up for a half second and cast. Note: If you throw the imps into the fiery pits, they will die and you do not have to worry about them. Likewise, if you throw them all away you cannot put them into the cages to get out; but when all are indeed gone, they respawn from that hatch in the wall at the first ramp.
Professor Flitwick's Incedio Challenge: Once you get the Incedio Spell, return to the main room and make sure the two pillars are down. Go into one of them and switch the flame direction so that the flames are both are on one side of the room. On the other side, use Incedio to light the pigs and Flapendo to point them up to lift the platform; then again on the other one. Run quickly to the switch by the exit. If successful the door, will be unlocked halfway. You will need to do likewise with the other side. Note: You do not have to charge at all -- this gives you a few extra needed seconds.
Fighting with Expelliarmus: When in one of the few battles with Hogwart's students (just the Slytherin Gang, all others leave you alone), let them make the first shot and bounce it back. Just as you do, use your Flapendo with a quarter to half second charge to knock them back, thus trapping them with two spells to knock back, which they can never manage. Note: Beware, just as you finish casting Flapendo (depending on distance), you will be forced to use your Expelliarmus almost instantly.
Hermione's book quest: After you have defeated the Book Shelf on your quest to find the book for Hermione, grab the block and take it all the way to the front of the room in front of the first book shelf in a row of book cases. When you are on the first book case, you will see flying books staying in one place. Cast the Hand spell on them and jump across.
Finding the Ghoul book: Go through the tunnel with two star bushes that is near the flying field with Ms. Hooch. Then, fly to the left and you will find a ledge that has the book on it.
Hogwarts: A History book: When you climb on the book shelves, hit the flying books two times and they will fall. You can now jump onto the next shelf. When you make it to the book, it does not matter if you die -- you will be put back up onto the ledge.
Transformation spell: After you acquire the spell and return to the main room, use it to get across the room on the other side of the gargoyle. You will need to use the hardly visible ledges to cross. Hang off the wall ledge to escape nearing ghosts, and push down the slabs to make a bridge. Once this is done, you will have to fight the gargoyle. It is recommended that you get on the right staircase, halfway up. Then, use the spell on the last stone and the door will open.
Forbidden Forest spiders: The spiders in the forest act as follows: Tiny Black: Show you the path, Big Green: Jumpers (jump, run away, and jump again), Big Red: Flingers (they spit), Big White: Flingers (spit paralyzing venom), Big Multicolor: Possible Jumper/Flinger mix.
Greenhouse: Wizards Card: After talking to Fred and George, go to the right of the greenhouse and cast Alohomora the hedge separating it from the wall. Follow the passage to a small courtyard. Cast Alohomora on the statues to get the Card.
See Mrs. Hooch flinch: Go to the Flying Court and fly near Mrs. Hooch, the flying teacher. Fly as close as you can to her. She will put her broom up in front of her face and try to protect herself from you slamming into her.
