Carpe Retractum

Collect ingredients for the Antidote to Uncommon Poisons
Ron stole the Graphorn Horn from Malfoy, so you have three more ingredients to collect. All ingredients are outside on the Grounds, so exit out and head toward Hagrid's. With Hagrid's Hut to your right, look left. Here you'll see a beam of light shooting into the sky. At the base of this beam are your first ingredients: The Chizpurfle Carapaces.

Approach the Venemous Tentacula, and notice it snaps at you when you get too close. Now, approach the Chizpurfles behind the Venemous Tentacula. As Ron, shine the Lumos Duo at them and drag them close to the Venemous Tentacula. The VT will gobble the Chizpurfle, then spit out a Chizpurfle Carapaces. Collect three.

Next, find Buckbeak, who is right next to Hagrid's. As Hermione, Bow to Buckbeak and climb on. Fly toward the water and turn left. Near the large bridge will be another ray of light, indicating the placement of your second ingredient: The Billywig Stings. Fairly close to the surface of the water you'll spot three Billywigs flying around. Fly through each one to capture it. Collect all three.

Still on Buckbeak, fly over to the Greenhouses (fly around to the backside and look down, there's another light beam emerging here). In the middle of the greenhouses is a flaming tree. Dismount from Buckbeak and use Hermione's Glacius Spell to put out the flames, then collect the Fire Seeds that fall. You now have all of your ingredients. Return to the Entrance Hall and make your way down to the Potions Classroom in the Dungeons. Inside you will learn about the Antidote for Common Poisons and receive a new assignment...not to worry about now.

Attend the Charms class on the second floor
Head up to the second floor. Run to the opposite end of the Study Room. Open up the treasure chest in the desk area for a card, and pass through the door to the Charms Classroom. Here you will be sent on another spell retrieving mission.

Collect the Carpe Retractum spellbook.
Run forward and onto the platform. Torches will ignite and come after you. Use Hermione's Glacius Spell to freeze them, and let Ron and Harry knock them down with Flipendo. Doing this will unlock the next door. Pass through it and collect the Challenge Shield.

In this next circular room you'll find three firey rings. Cool them off with Glacius, then, have Ron, Hermione, and Harry grab one each. This will cause the platform to fall. Fight off the many Red Hats who appear with Flipendo, then pass through the archway. Have Ron and Harry lift the gate and have Hermione crawl under it.

As Hermione, run forward. Use Glacius to cross the pool of water to the ledges across the way. Make sure you freeze the water all of the way up to the ledge you choose to jump up to, or you'll fall through. Collect the Challenge Shield, the Folio Bruti page in the treasure chest, and hit the switch raise the gate for Harry and Ron. Once you've hit the switch, the next door will unlock. Pass through it.

Collect the 2 Antidotes for Uncommon Poisons, then fight off Doxies and Red Hats. Don't let the Doxies get close to you. If they do, they'll bite you and you'll find yourself poisoned. If this happens, drink your Antidote ASAP. Work your way through the hall and pass through the door.

Here, you'll find a new sliding block puzzle. Note the trapped Doxies. Go ahead and Flipendo the crates that house the Doxies and take the Doxies down. Next, go ahead and freeze one of the waterfalls and climb the ledge. Hit the switch, and watch the light flow. Quickly, drop off your ledge and jump up to the ledge with the mirror. Move the mirror so the light deflects onto the central Crystal Ball. This will cause a spigot to shoot out a pool of water. Go to the pool and use Glacius on it to create an ice block.

Now, check out the location of the switch. It's on a little "outlet" of the square. You need to get your ice block onto that square. Notice there is a crate near this outlet. Push the ice block so it rests between the crate and the corner of the square. Flipendo the crate, and push the ice block over it's debris, to the opposite end. Use Reparo on the crate to rebuild it. Go to your ice block and Flipendo the crate it's now resting against. This will give you the space you need to get behind the ice block and push it back toward the crate you just rebuilt. From here, push the ice block directly onto the switch. Your door is now open. Climb up the ledge again via the waterfalls, collect the Challenge Shields and move through the next hall, taking down enemies as you go.

You'll eventually emerge on a balcony, with a broken gear set in front of you. Repair the set with Reparo, then hit it with Flipendo lower the concrete slab across the way. Cross the concrete slab, then move across the central pillar and hit the switch on the opposite end. This creates a staircase for Ron and Harry. Grab the card from the treasure chest and switch to Harry.

If Harry's not at the top of the stairs here, take him there, then place him on the concrete slab. Climb either one of the two ropes, and wall sneak left, behind the wall supports, and over to the switch. Hit the switch and you'll be trapped, but you'll have opened a new door for Ron and Hermione.

Pass through the door and collect the card from the treasure chest. Move down the hall and fix the bridge with Hermione's Reparo Spell. Along the way, take out the Red Hat who drops down, then the three at the end of the bridge. Climb the stairs and pass through the next door. Here is another puzzle, and more Hinkypunks. Grr. Take the Hinkypunks down with Lumos, then Flipendo. Next have Hermione freeze a waterfall beneath the crystal ball, then have Ron climb up and light up the crystal ball with Lumos. As Hermione, follow the ray of light to the mirror, then freeze the waterfall below it. Climb it, then move the mirror so the light deflects onto the statue across from the crystal ball. Doing this will cause a puddle to be created beneath the ball of light below. Freeze the puddle, then push the light ball to the opposite side of the central block, then push it from one side to the other so it passes by the switch on the central block. This is enough light to drop the next staircase. Climb it and collect the Challenge Shield. Pass through the next door.

Move down the hall. Have Ron shine Lumos on the Hinkypunks while Hermione toasts them with Flipendo. Taking the Hinkypunks down will unlock the next door for you, and you'll be back out in the central room. Head right and collect the card from the chest, then left and hit the switch to release Harry and to create a staircase between you and Harry. Switch to Harry and bring him up to Ron and Hermione. Have Harry jump off the platform, on the side of the treasure chest, to the concrete slab below. Climb either of the two ropes and wall sneak right to the gear mechanism. Flipendo it and the concrete slab will be raised. Return to the concrete slab and jump the gap to the next door. Pass through.

Make your way to the room with the staircase leading up to the central pillar. Atop the Pillar is the Carpe Retractum Spellbook. Pick it up to learn the Spell.

After the cutscene the stairs surrounding your pillar will no longer be there, but you will have some Red Hats across the way, on both sides, ready for battle. First, focus on the two on the side with the statue. They have no shields, so simply take them down with Flipendo. Once they're out, use your Carpe Retractum on the statue, and the statue will pull you over the gap. Make your way around to the other two Red Hats. Along the way you'll run into a bridge with a gap. Notice the hook? Use your Carpe Retractum Spell on the hook to cover the gap and meet up with the two Red Hats. These two Red Hats have shields. Use Carpe Retractum to pull their shields away (use your control stick), then hit them with Flipendo. This will open up the next door. Continue along until you reach the central pillar room. Note, however, the room with the grate and the switch behind the gate along your way.

In the central area, use Carpe Retractum to pull one section of the bridge over, jump the gap, then pull the other section of bridge over. Now Ron and Hermione can cross. Back in the room with the grate and switch, use Carpe Retractum to pull the grate cover off, then switch to Hermione and have her crawl through the hole. Run through the hall to the switch and hit it. This raises the gate, allowing Ron and Harry to pass through. Continue along through the next door.

In this next hall you'll meet up with several Red Hats. Go in as Harry, pulling off shields as you go, and let your friends hit them with Flipendo. Collect the Challenge Shield and pass through the door. Here you'll meet the dungeon boss. Don't worry, he's easy to beat.

To defeat the shielded enemy, simply stay out of his path until he stops spinning. When he does, use Carpe Retractum to pull one of the shields off of him. You'll find the shields are connected to little monsters. Wait for the little monster to stop running around, get in front of him and Flipendo him. One direct hit in his green heart will take him down. Repeat this until all of the shields are gone. At this point, the shielded enemy will wield swords. Again, simply stay out of the way. When he pauses, use Carpe Retractum on his head and pull his head off. Once you do this, your battle will be over. Pass through the unlocked door and exit out of the Carpe Retractum dungeon.

Collect the card from the treasure chest on the ground. Have Hermione cast Reparos on the crate by the bookshelf, climb up and collect the many Beans from the treasure chest here. Once this is done, go ahead and End your Day.
