Pottermore Book 1 Chapter 16 Walkthrough

In Moment 1 of Chapter 16, your goal is to catch the key. For me, the key was blue. The best way is to simply move your mouse around and pay attention to when something changes color.

There is nothing special in Moment 2. In Moment 3, you will have to solve the potion puzzle. You can find the directions on the scroll.

To proceed, you will have to select the third and the seventh potion, counting from the left.

  1. I solved the riddle and got the same answers as what is said all over the internet; however I cannot click on the potions. My mouse doesn’t change when I hover it over them and when I try clicking, double-clicking or dragging them it doesn’t work either. Is there something I am doing wrong? I’m using Firefox if that helps.

    • try clicking under the potions not directly on them. Hope it helps.. at least it worked for me 🙂

    • I also had problems clicking things in pottermore, not in chapter 16, but with potions. After I installed the latest flash player I quit having issues.

    • I use Firefox as well, but I’m not quite sure what may be wrong. It could possibly be your computer type, if it’s older. But if that’s not it, then I’m sot even sure. Try contacting Sony or whoever manage’s the site (I know that’s J.K. Rowling, but I mean whoever manages it tech-wise)

    • Hi,

      I had the same problem – but after I adjusted the zoom settings (reset to 100%) it worked perfectly! I’m on chrome but I know other users with different browsers have had the same problem with the same solution. Hope this helps!


    • use google chrome, it can handle all the media put on the website. add me, i’m phoenixflame9704 c:

    • I am having exactly the same problem. I was wondering if your flashplayer is up to date? My computer will not let me upgrade my flashplayer, so I thought that might have something to do with it. Let me know if you figure it out! I want to move forward!

    • Put your curser(arrow) just below the potion and then click. That was the only way I could get them

    • i don’t know if firefox works but I’m using google chrome and it works perfectly

  2. as soon as i get to the potion puzzle it sais on the screen : to solve the potion you must select the two correct potions. and it just wont come off the screen. it wont even let me look at scroll

  6. I got through it successfully on my phone. Using Dolphin Browser, I pressed on each potion, when it didn’t work I refreshed the page. When it reloaded it said I could continue.

  7. my computer work and I use Windows/Internet Explorer and click shadows, potions, just below the potions and dragged, HELP ME!!

  8. The door in the 3rd zoom level lights up, but, that is all that happens as far as I can tell.
