The First Day of Term

Go to the Defense Against the Dark Arts classroom on the third floor.
As Hermione, exit the Girls' Dormitory and head to the Gryffindor Common Room, where you'll meet up with Harry and Ron. With your comrades by your side, make your way to the Grand Staircase and to the third floor. Run straight through the study to the Grunhilda of Gorsemoor Corridor, then through the door directly across the way, to the Defense Against the Dark Arts Classroom. Here, Lupin will ask you to bring to the the Glacius Spellbook. Alrighty then.

Collect the Glacius spellbook
Move along the path and you'll end up in a room with many Pixies and a large cauldron. Take out the Pixies with Flipendo, then grab one of the cauldron handles. Call over Ron and Harry to grab the other two cauldron handles and, together, move the cauldron over to the large switch behind it and drop the cauldron upon the switch. This will open the doors up the stairs. Move up the stairs and collect the card from the treasure chest, then go through either of the two doors and follow the path to the next room (toasting the Pixies as you go).

Up next you're in a chilly little room. Switch to Harry, and look for the switch to the right of your entrance and hit it. This will produce a ray of light. Run to the mirror which is deflecting the light onto the wall. Jump up to it, then jump on it and move it to hit the mirror to your right. Step off then jump the gap to the next ledge. Run over to the next mirror and deflect its light to the mirror to your left. Then, jump the gap to this next mirror and deflect the light to the switch directly behind you. This will open the door. Pass through it, collecting the Challenge Shield as you go.

Take down the Pixies, then run to the gears in the middle of the room. Target and hit the gears head-on with Flipendo until you no longer can. This will raise a platform behind it. Now, make your way along the many platforms to the next gear. Here, again hit it until you can't hit it any more. Once this is done, make your way over to this newly raised platform, then to the ledge across from it. Pass through and you'll find yourself in a spot looking down at your friends. Run right, over to the next gear, hit it several times, and notice the door behind Ron and Hermione raises up. Once it's up, go down and meet with your friends and pass through the new opening.

Run down the hall and pass through the door. Check out this room. There are three switches on the ground, a large crate and a treasure chest. Collect the frog in the treasure chest to refuel, then step on a switch. Notice that, when you do, a stone lowers above the high bookcases, revealing a switch behind it. You need to depress all three ground switches to gain access the switch above...but there are three of you, and Harry needs to make it across the bookcases to push the switch above. That's where the large crate comes in. However, before placing it on a switch, Harry needs it to get up on the bookcases, so, drag it over to the shorter bookcases at the opposite end and climb on up. Have Harry climb to the next case, then have him make the jumps necessary to get him to the switch (I had trouble making these jumps initially because of a bad controller. Be sure to be running fast and absolutely straight to make them). Once Harry is in place, have Ron or Hermione grab the large crate and place it over a switch. Then, have Ron and Hermione step on the other two. Now, the switch by Harry is accessible. Have Harry hit it, and watch as the stairs across the way drop down. Have Harry collect the card from the treasure chest on the bookcases before jumping off. Then, run up the stairs, collect the Challenge Shield, and fight the book with Expelliarmus. As Ron, run up to Harry and the book, and open up the dark section of wall.

Use Flipendo on the Salamanders, then make your way down the hall. Here you'll, again, be looking over the central room with a set of gears in front of you. Shoot the gears with Flipendo. This will raise another door below, releasing the Pixies. Wiggle free from the Pixies, then take them down with Flipendo. Once they're toast, as Hermione, approach the newly raised door and crawl under it.

In the next room is your first ice puzzle. In front of you is an ice block. Push it left, forward and left. Then, climb on top of it and jump up to the next ledge. Here are two blocks in a square. Also note the switch. With the switch to your right, push the block in front of you clockwise, until it rests just beyond the switch. Then, push the other block clockwise, until it hits on the switch. Notice the tall ice block below disappears. You may also note here a couple of treasure chests, up on a ledge across the way. If you want to access these (you'll only find Beans here), then continue the clockwise movements of the blocks until one of them lines up with the line to the ledge. Push the block down line, then pull it over to the ledge. Climb up and open up the two treasure chests. If you do this, again, slide an ice block over the switch, then drop down to the level below. With the tall block out of the way, slide the short block around until you have access to the ledge leading to the open doorway. Jump up on the ledge, collect the card from the treasure chest, and exit out.

Jump down to the Glacius Spellbook and pick it up. You will find yourself surrounded by a pool of lava. Replace Expelliarmus with Glacius in your Inventory Menu. Move forward and to the edge of the platform. Cast Glacius, and aim the ice stream at the lava below. This will form an ice bridge for you, to the platform across the way. Take it and climb up onto the ledge. Run left and collect the card from the treasure chest. Use Glacius, then Flipendo on any torches that give you trouble along the way. Continue left and work your way out of the room, collecting the Challenge Shield as you go.

In the next room you have another ice puzzle, but no ice block. You do, however, have a puddle in the maze. Target the puddle and use Glacius on it and an ice block will form. Push the iceblock toward the end near the switch (this can be done in many ways, each one of them easy). At the end near the switch, pull the ice block off the maze and drag it to the switch. Climb on top and hit the switch to lower the stairs. Collect the Folio Bruti page from the chest, then move up the stairs. Go left to collect a chocolate frog from the treasure chest, then exit right.

Cross the lava pit by casting Glacius glaciers across it. Move fast as the glaciers disappear, and head to the right side of the opposite ledge for access. Collect the Challenge Shield and drop down into the next room, where Harry and Ron are facing the Fire Salamanders. You, as Hermione, need to cast Glacius on the Fire Salamanders to turn them to ice. When you do, they can be hit by any one of the threesome with Flipendo. You also need to put out the fire pits with Glacius, or the Fire Salamanders will regenerate. So, your best bet here is to play through this as Hermione, casting Glacius on the Fire Salamanders and the fire pits, allowing Ron and Harry to take out the Ice Salamanders on their own. Once you've cleared the room, your exit will open up. Move through the tunnel and you will meet the Glacius Boss.

The Glacius Boss is fairly easy to beat when you figure out how. Simply keep out of his way. When the grates on his head fly open, target his head and strafe left, to avoid the four firey rocks he spits at you. When the last one is shot, stop and cast Glacius into his head. He'll go a little nutso, then he'll shoot an arm your way. Target it, cast Glacius to put out the fire, then destroy it with Flipendo. Repeat. When both of his arms are gone, he'll come after you a little faster. Just move faster away. He'll stop and give you a few teaser shots of firey rocks, but wait for him to shoot the four in a row again. When he does this, take aim with Glacius, and say bye-bye to the Glacius Boss. Collect the Challenge Shield and exit out the way you originally entered.

Attend Potions class in the Dungeons to learn about the Wiggenweld Potion
With the Glacius Spell under your belt, it's time to head to Snape's Potions Class in the dungeons. First, grab the card from the treasure chest up the small set of stairs, then make your way to the Grand Staircase and take it to the bottom. Exit out into the Entrance Hall, then hang a right to enter the Dungeons. In the Dungeons, Potions Class is your first door on your left.

In Potions you will learn how to use the Wiggenweld Potion, or, in video game talk, Health. As Ron, pick up Harry and drag him to the front of the class. Once you get there, you'll be taught how to use the potion. You can use it on yourself, or on your friends. To use it on yourself, stand away from your friends, equip it (like you would a Spell) and use it. To use it on a friend, simply use it while standing right next to him/her.

Once this is done, Snape will give you four ingredients you need to collect for next time. Don't worry about them now. Now is a good time to End the Day.
