Thank You!!! I was missing a student in peril and it turned out to be the time turner on the Quidditch Pitch! Now I am at 100.0%!!! YEAH!!!!!!
Lucky you! I can’t use the parseltongue door in the clocktower and now I’m stuck at 195 gold bricks and 46 students. 🙁
You have Charms Corridor (left) twice.
I’m still missing one 🙁
In the boys bathroom, I cannot remember if I grabbed the student in peril here. There is a boy sitting in the second cubicle but when I hit the left cubicle, nothing happens.
Same ,there’s a boy in the 2nd cubicle everytime I go bk in there but the door is open. Am still missing 1. Ive gone through the whole list, completed all levels but cant find last student in peril, last red brick and i still need 20 gold bricks
I can hear a noise in the fire place but there is no vememous tentactular. URGH.
i have all 50 but it wont give me the achievement and i can’t find the last gold brick but i looked everywhere i mean EVERYWHERE !
Should be the Entrance Hall (where the GH entrance is)
Can’t for the life of me find the last student. Feel like I’ve walked through Hogwarts a million times looking for him. Ahhh, help ?? ?
I can’t seem to find the “dropped book” to get the cuckoo clock at the end of the aisle of shelves in the restricted section level. I’ve searched everywhere but no aura to cast wingardium appears. Help!
i’ve done all of these and i’m on 199 gold bricks
I’ve completed all the levels and students in those levels but I’m still missing 2! I can’t find him and I’ve looked everywhere! I’m also missing one last gold brick even after I find the last few students…. Please help!
I can hear the student in peril in the clock tower but no matter what I do he’s not on the web!! Help!
Same. I used the time turner. I hear him. But I don’t see him.
on the PS4 remastered version, the student in peril isn’t in the herbology classroom behind the bars, but I can still hear him in the room. It is the last SIP i have left 🙁
I’m still stuck on 49/50
Can not hit the toilet cubical to free the student. Anyone got any tips?
I noticed another student who seems to be in peril during year 2 in the clocktower courtyard hanging off a cornice with a girl watching.
I shot him down and he dropped studs for me but guess he’s just a bonus and doesn’t actually count towards the peril total only the one getting bullied by Slytherin students.
