You can now walk upto any fireplace with a yellow Fire Dust pot and right click it and select a destination. Make sure not to mumble!
A bag full of warpkeys is a great way to travel. By exploring around the map you can collect warpkeyss in special places around the map. In the future you can use these to travel back by opening your warpkey bag.
Check the Brooms section of the FAQ to learn everything about magical brooms.
Brooms can be purchased from Quality Quabbleball Supplies next to the Joke Shop in Mystic Market.
There are five different types of brooms available for purchase. These are the Bluebranch, Shinesweep One, Meteor 5000, Nimblemax 2000 and the Fireflash.
The prices for brooms range from 100 to 2000 Gold.
The more you use your broom the better you become. Brooms have seven levels and get faster the higher level you achieve.
You can use your movement keys (W, A, S, D) and your mouse to control your flying speed and pitch.
To see what level you are at currently, hover over your broom in your inventory. Use the Cast Counter NPC in the trophy room to see how many more times you have to use your broom to level it up.
There are many gruesome Mobs who can be found in all the dark and gloomy corners of the wizarding world. Try searching for them in the Wilderness and the Dark Forest.
You can get to the Dark Forest by using fire dust to get to the Ground Keeper’s Hut which is at the entrance to the forest.
To find the Wilderness, exit the Hogsworth grounds to the North of the greenhouses.
By killing mobs, you'll gain XP and collect any valuable mob drops. These can be sold or used in potions. Talk to the Ground Keeper at his hut and he'll pay you a good price for them.
Some of the many mobs are Arachtellas, the Undead, Dementares, Centaurs, Pink Puffs, Toads, Noogles and many more!
Every student has their own private housing plot.
Type /housing to go to your own house or join your friends at their homes.
When you’re on your plot, you can type /house to get a list of commands used to customize your housing. You can show the border of your plot, enable PvP, change who can visits and much more.
To increase the size of your plot, visit Ernie’s Estates near the Wizard Bank in Mystic Market.
There are many great sceneries you can choose from. There are different sceneries available for Gold, Voting Tokens and from our store.
All building materials and blocks are available for purchase at the Mine Depot in Wizendale! There is a fire dust warp to this shop. Chests for storage can be purchased in the shop next to the Mine Depot.
Only you and residents of your plot are able to open chests or build on your plot. So be very careful who you add as a resident.
Vaults can be purchased at the Banker in the vaults of the Wizard Bank. Use the Fire Dust network or the minecart ride to get there.
Each vault will give 54 slots to store all your precious items.
You can buy up to twelve vaults, however they cost more the higher the vault number is.
Where can I duel other players?
Duel players at dueling arenas! The arenas can be found in the Department of Warfare in the Ministry of Magic. You can use Fire Dust to get to some arenas too!
Duel players at your housing plot! Simply ask them to come to your housing plot by typing /housing [name] and duel! Type /house pvp on to enable PvP on your plot.

How do I play tag?
If you’d like to play tag, start off by getting the tag hat and spell from the ‘Tag Dude’ in the trophy room! You can use the warp sign outside of the great hall to get there.
Now that you've gotten the hat and the spell, you’re ready to play tag! You can play tag with other players where pvp is enabled; this can be in the forest, at housing plots, or one of our custom made arenas which can be found in the elevators, in the department of hoppers and droppers!
Start by choosing someone who needs to find everyone else, and cast the tag spell on them. They’ll get a red block on their head; indicating that they’re it, and that they’ll be searching for everyone else with the tag hat on their head.
For the gameplay itself, the person with the red block on their head is supposed to cast the ‘tag spell’ on everyone else so they also get a red block on their head! Everyone with white blocks on their head are only allowed to use protective and defensive spells; such as protello! - However, this is your game and your rules! You can change the rules with your friends if you want too!
When everyone has gotten a red block on their head, the game is over. You can add a time limit if you want too.
If you get hit by the tag spell, you can join help the original ‘it’ with finding the others! - This can be changed if you want too. Your game, your rules!
Things you can keep in mind when playing tag: You can add a time limit, decide which spells are allowed on both teams and more! Be creative, this is your game!
If you’d like your white block back, simply click on the red block in your inventory, and you’ll get it back! Have fun and happy playing!

There are many subjects taught on Potterworld, ranging from Potions to Astronomy!
In most classes your work will be graded using the standard wizarding grading scale. From highest to lowest the grades are Outstanding (O), Exceeds Expectations (E), Acceptable (A), Poor (P), Dreadful (D) and Troll (T). You get different amounts of academic credits depending on your grade. Grade P, D and T are failing grades and receive no academic credits.
You do not have to go to classes, they are completely optional! There are many ways that you can get ACs outside of classes.
All spells have 7 levels. The spell will improve with each level and make it more powerful. Each level for a spell will be unlocked to be learned when moving on to the next year.
All spells will be “leveled up” by successfully casting them! The spell will only do damage if you successfully hit a mob or player, this is the only way it will count as a successful cast!
When you first unlock spells, all spells will have a chance to “Fizzle”, which means it failed to cast. This makes it more realistic! As you level up your spells, the chance to fizzle diminishes till you succeed every time. Some spells will also increase in power, damage, size, etc. All spells have a “Cast Counter” that internally counts the number of times you successfully casted that spell. After reaching the set “cast requirement” for each spell level, the spell will automatically level up! You will get a message saying what has changed about the spell.
Some spells like Lumen don’t require a target to practice casting. They are all different so have fun and experiment with it.
Spells can only increase in level up to your current Hogsworth year! This means if you are a year 3 and you have the spell Specutelum, you can only level Specutelum up to Level 3 and can’t level it up further until you’re a higher level; maxing out at 7.
To get a Daily Riddle, go to the courtyard or /warp info and select Tommy Riddle. You will then be able to view a riddle using /q.
The solution can be a block, region or NPC, so be on the lookout!
You can abandon your riddle at any time, but you will not be able to get a new one until 24 hours after you took the riddle.
Once you solve the riddle, you will be rewarded with AC, and will be able to take a new riddle tomorrow!
Everyone gets a different riddle, so the chances of getting the same riddle as your friend is very unlikely.
Do not ask for the location of your riddle in public chats.
Don’t discuss your riddle in public chats.
You cannot buy the location of your riddle. This includes through store purchases.
