What Objects Are Hidden Inside Pottermore?

Sponsored Links

Pottermore beta has been out for 5 days now, open to a small luicky few early registrants and already people inside are coming out reporting some interesting discoveries.

One of these discoveries has to do with hidden objects inside Pottermore. Since most of us at this time do not have access to Pottermore we’ve all been relying on testimony from people inside being tweeted or posted in places like Twitter or the Pottermore forum.

What are some interesting hidden objects in Pottermore? There are plenty of objects hidden throughout Pottermore. People are posting some lengthy lists. It is also important to note that not all the objects are hidden, some can be purchased in the shop.

Note: the rest of this post will be about some objects people are finding inside Pottermore but will not indicate where. If you don’t mind knowing what some of these objects are please continue to read this post. Again, items are mentioned but location is not.

One interesting object in Pottermore that’s turning up is the prefect badge. This is an interesting find and could be a factor in the accumulation of the Pottermore House Points. I stress could be because at this point I have not heard anything about how it will actually work.

The prefect is a student who is chosen in his or her fifth year who receives extra duties, responsibilities and authorities. One of the powers of the prefect is to take away house points from students within their own house as a penalty for breaking the rules.  Again, no one yet inside Pottermore has mentioned how they were able to use the prefect badge, its function or even how it will be used.

Another popular object that is being found is the winged key. Winged keys are of course are literally keys that fly by the power of a flying charm spell and were used to guard the philosopher’s stone. Only one of the keys could unlock the door into the fourth chamber. Have not hear yet how this object will be manipulated inside Pottermore.

One of the more popular objects being found inside Pottermore is the Golden Snitch.  The Pottermore Golden Snitch is the fourth ball used in the Quidditch match where the goal is to have one seeker from one team catch it before the other team.  People would be elated if there were some type of Quidditch game scenario inside Pottermore but this has not been confirmed I don’t think.  The Golden Snitch object will only rekindle the discussion once again.

People are also finding the Dragon Egg in Pottermore. Dragon Eggs are considered non tradable and as of yet have not heard how this object will be used in the game.

Part 2 of more hidden objects in Pottermore coming real soon.

    I thought the objects were just collectables. I’m not in yet but I’ve watched over the shoulder of someone who is and all the items he found just went inside his trunk. I haven’t seen him actually use any of them.

  • Christine August 22, 2011, 4:28 am

    I’m in pottermore … you basically get 1 point for every item you find

  • Giselle August 24, 2011, 2:01 am

    I’m in Pottermore and there are way more things than that. The prefect badge can be found at the train station lying on someone’s bags. You get the snitch and the key by catching them. There is also a hammer and nails set in the Dursley’s house by the front door.

  • Jesse September 3, 2011, 10:33 pm

    So far I have 20 items in Pottermore. My favorite is getting to collect the chocolate frog cards, but I’m still missing two. My user name is StoneMist37. 😀 I’m in Ravenclaw! If anyone wants to be my friend on there, just add me!!

    • Eda September 4, 2011, 4:46 am

      Hey Jesse 🙂 I still have to find 3 objects and 1 book 🙂 but I found all the frog cards. I can help you to find them. My user name is StarDraconis31. I’m in Slytherin 🙂

      • Kelleylynn September 10, 2011, 11:14 pm

        Hey how is it you know how many more objects you have to find? Is there a place that tells you how many there are?

    • Marilyn September 14, 2011, 9:32 pm

      I still need 1 object and 1 book. Been through each chapter numerous times and still can’t find them. Found all of the chocolate frog though. I’m StormKey127 – Hufflepuff

    • Alicia May 15, 2012, 12:47 am

      I need help with vault on pottermore

  • Danae?! September 5, 2011, 3:28 pm

    As a Pottermore Gryffindor (who always thought she would be a Slytherin… awkwaaard, don’t tell my Housemates), I haven’t found that darn dragon egg, but you basically get one point for every object you find. I don’t think the Prefect badges have anything to do with becoming a Prefect, as I found one and it’s nothing special… you really earn more points by brewing Potions, and you earn a LOT of points for Duelling, but right now Duelling is down 🙁 I personally cannot wait to duel. What’s odd is that Slytherins seem to be better at potion brewing and Gryffindors appear to have been better at Duelling when Duelling was still up XD

    • rose September 12, 2011, 12:28 pm

      hey danae that dragon egg can be found inside hagrids hut in chapter fourteen im in slytherin if you want to add me its quaffledream37

    • Cory September 12, 2011, 1:36 pm

      The dragon egg is in the fireplace at Hagrid’s Hut .. Hope that helps 🙂

    • MagicAvis183 September 12, 2011, 10:56 pm

      Haha, I’m a Slytherin that always thought she would be a Gryffindor. Guess we both were very wrong. Feel free to add me or secretly plan on dueling in *hopefully* the near future.

      • Confused October 4, 2011, 5:40 pm

        I’m a Slytherin that thought that thought they would be anything BUT a slytherin…

      • StormVine3804 May 20, 2012, 9:14 am

    I am StarDawn199, Hufflepuff. I have 15 books, 11 choc. frog cards and 21 objects

    I am having fun but it kind of reminds me of the old Fisher Price computer games that matched the toy castle or pirate ship, where you searched for treasure map pieces or gold and played simple games. The story extra is fascinating but no telling you about that. Just it is the best part of the site

    • Marilyn September 14, 2011, 9:37 pm

      I’m StormKey127 – Hufflepuff

      I have 19 objects, 11 frogs and 15 books. I have no idea what objects I’m missing. I’ve been through the chapters numerous times and can’t find anything new. Frustrated

      • Bec September 25, 2011, 3:47 am

          I’m StormVine3804, RavenClaw, I have 11 chocolate frog cards, 15 objects, and, 12 books.

  • Cynthia September 7, 2011, 7:15 pm

  • Steph September 11, 2011, 7:20 am

    Hi everyone,
    I have literally just started Pottermore 10mins ago and have realised the enormous amount of items/spells…that I need to collect. I was wondering if anyone knows of a published list of where to find these things and what they actually all are? Thanks 🙂 JinxRain118 is my name thingy if anyone wants to add me :s

  • hcd September 13, 2011, 1:07 pm

    Same question as some others, anyone know of a published list? I am still on chapter one and I am trying to get all objects before going on.

    • anonymous September 26, 2011, 6:57 pm

      sorry, i dont know a published list, but my advice is to only collect things u absolutely have to cause it wont let u move on without it. OTher things, i would suggest you skip, get into hogwarts and have a house, then come back and collect the items as once in a house, you get points for everything u collect.

  • FelicisLight36 September 16, 2011, 4:43 pm

    i got all of the cards books and items and have 9655 house points add me as a friend

  • Cameron September 24, 2011, 6:42 pm

    So far I have 20 objects, 10 chocolate frog cards (can’t find 1 though I’ve searched everywhere) and 15 books. I’ve been told by various people that there are a total of 24 items that you need to find. I don’t know if this is true. So I’m turning to you all for help. What am I missing? Besides that one card and if you know where to find the card, you’ll be a big help! My game name is WillowCauldron86 and I’m in Hufflepuff. Feel free to add me. =^-^=

    • anonymous September 26, 2011, 7:51 pm

      (from http://tweeting.com/the-11-chocolate-frog-card-locations-revealed-in-pottermore-spoiler)The 11 cards locations are-Chapter 6: Moment 2, Morgana Card: On the seat in train carriage.
      Chapter 6: Moment 2, Albus Dumbledore : In the trunk underneath the table.
      Chapter 8: Moment 1, Circe: Lying on the the stairs below with the zoom feature. One of my favorite locations.
      Chapter 8: Moment 3, Paracelsus: Hagrid’s shack near the barrel
      Chapter 9: Moment 2, Salazar Slytherin: This one is in the trophy case.
      Chapter 10: Moment 3, Hengist of Woodcroft: Next to the right of the jack-o-lantern, behind the dark right shadow
      Chapter 12: Moment 1, Merlin: this ones hidden at the lower part of the fourth bookcase, double zoom here.
      Chapter 13: Moment 2, Helga Hufflepuff: on the ground, right of the hooded, dark figure. Hard to spot.
      Chapter 15: Moment 1, Rowena Ravenclaw : On the windowsill, beautiful picture.
      Chapter 17: Moment 3, Godric Gryffindor: Right near Mcgonagall’s goblet.
      Chapter 17: Moment 2 Cliodna: On the chair.

      • LumosScarlet110 September 27, 2011, 6:29 pm

        Do you have a list like this for the books as I can only find 15??

        • MahoganyUnicorn74 October 1, 2011, 6:53 pm

          You might have all 19. There should be 3 under the Spells tab and 1 under Potions 😀

        • Lily October 2, 2011, 11:33 pm

          I just found two books on Chapter 12, moment 1. Middle shelf, one zoom! (:

          • Lily October 2, 2011, 11:35 pm

            Oh yeah, I’m MistEye159, Ravenclaw by the way. =n_n=

  • Heather S. September 26, 2011, 1:28 pm

    so far, I’m pretty certain that I’ve found everything, as I’ve gone through the Book 1 Experience several times now, and I have:

    22 Objects (with three spaces left in the Object Trunk Space, I just think they had to fill out the line, is all)
    11 Cards
    19 Books (11 hidden and 8 bought)

    I’m pretty certain I found all of the hidden potion ingredients as well, but it’s hard to tell as I bought all of what was available in the Apothecary too.

    Potions are fun to do…I wish I’d’ve gotten to do duelling, but hopefully, they’ll get that back going before the live launch in October.

  • Heather S. September 26, 2011, 1:28 pm

    also – I’m FeatherRose151…feel free to add ^_^

  • LumosScarlet110 September 27, 2011, 6:28 pm

    Can anyone tell me if you need to collect the objects;

    in chapter 1
    scene 2 and 3 – the puter outer in Dumbledores hand, and the flying motorbike

    they come up on the left of my screen as trunk objects but I cant click on them to collect

    also in chapter 17
    scene 3
    the house cup

    • PixieMist157 October 1, 2011, 11:57 pm

      I have not been able to collect these objects either. I dont think they are meant to be collected.

  • sparkswatch63 September 29, 2011, 12:23 pm

    I’ve got 21 items in my trunk now and im looking for the star charts, a good tip is to go have a look in your friends trunks to give you an idea of what you’re missing, that was how i found out i needed the that one thing :3

    im sparkswatch63 btw if you’d like to add me ^^

  • WitchPotion187 September 30, 2011, 6:19 am

    so far, I have 20 objects, 10 cards and 11 books…have to go back and look for the missing card and books 🙂
