General Discussion: Pottermore (SPOILERS)

Post by doc_ardyey on 2011-08-26, 08:56

Tons of owls are swooping dropping mails to everyone. What are your thoughts about Pottermore's Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone?

Mine? the sorting hat took all my energy as I was really hoping to still be in Gryffindor (maybe the Sorting Hat can really hear our thoughts).

The back story of Professor Mc Gonagall was boom and waaaah!!! It was way beyond my expectations Smile I can now hear DADAFs comments once she reads about it.

However, the lack of animation and sounds can somehow bring down your interest. And having the book beside you. I was thinking that the entire chapter would be read on screen, but then only glimpses.

So post away your thoughts Very Happy

Just explored the site today (got my welcome owl last night). The Sorting Hat blew my mind! I was sorted to Slytherin!! Shocked

I liked the back stories, ghost plots, as termed by JKR. Mapapaisip ka talaga, "May ganito palang nangyari sa buhay nila?" And to think, they're only fictional characters. =)

I agree with doc rj, medyo kulang nga sya sa animation and sounds. Hopefully, they'll add it to the site.

P.S. doc rj, what's your username so I can add you. =)

As for the Hufflepuffs, well, nobody could say they’re not nice people. In fact, they’re some of the nicest people in the school. Let’s just say you needn’t worry too much about them when it comes to competition at exam time.

Got my owl a few days back, but had to wait until my day off to start exploring.

Anyways, I got my wand (Ebony with Pheonix Feather Core, Thirteen and Three Quarter Inches, Reasonable Supple) and was sorted to Gryffindor

My wand: Silver Lime with Unicorn Core, 10 3/4 inches and quite flexible. I'm still adjusting with my new house. The potions are quite addictive, though I had been unlucky one time that I failed to brew the Awakening potion, melted my cauldron and lost 5 points from my house. x_x

Doc Arg, I think they just opened book 1 for the beta testing.

I had that problem before. What I did was just to stay on that page. I didn't click the "come back later." And then after that, it got fixed.

Based from experience, it really feels weird. The moment the sorting hat decided that I belong to Ravenclaw, i was like, "TF!!! I don't belong in that house! I'm supposed to be in Slytherin!"Heart-breaking, yeah...but you'll eventually like it. I'm loving the eagles now. They're not bad after all. Although, I'm missing Slyth now... Sad

Hey, I'm in Gryffindor at Pottermore too. Potions and Spells are hard at first, that's why there are practice rounds. I suggest remember the steps by groups, like the first 3 then. You could always go back to check on the next methods after. It'll be hard to control the liquids and vials because when you put it down, they literally lay down and spill -- and you might waste ingredients -- so just be careful. For tempering the cauldron, let it stay green within the time limit. You could lower-off-lower-off the fire as you please as long as it's just in the green.

For spells, I suggest to click twice on your keyboards instead of the mouse pads. Also, just prepare your fingers on the letters. You'll get the hang of it Very Happy Hope we'll be friends at Pottermore Very Happy

Jaylene, you're new so I'll let this slide.
Please note that double posting is not something we do here.
There is this button called "multi-quote" (see posts of people you want to reply to) which you can use to AVOID posting and replying several times with several posts. Try it. It's darn useful. Wink

Hey guys! PAM ARTIAGA, one of the PHP members just informed us that the points for the potion has now changed! Previously it was just all 5points. Here's the new one:

cure for boils = 3
antidote = 7
forgetfulness = 9
sleeping draught = 11
herbicide = 9
wide eye = 9

Goodluck wizards and witches! Let's brew, brew, brew!!! Smile See you around.

I agree. nakakalungkot kasi walang Hedwig's Theme. Sana man lang kahit tuwing bubuksan mo yung Pottermore, tutunog yung Hedwig's Theme kahit ipasada lang. Or kahit a few lines lang para di naman nakakaumay.

Pero tulad ng sama mo, ganda ng animation. Tapos yung mga unpublished stories nakakatuwa, especially yung kay Prof. McGonagall.
