Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince: Tip (Game Tips and Tactics)

This guide shows the location of all 125 icons that can be found on the Hogwarts grounds. For obvious reasons, this guide does not indicate the location of all the miniature icons, there are only twenty-five thousand of them. How much you need to collect to dial a mini badge is written below. Also, the location is not always indicated in detail, this is due to the fact that the game does not have a clear gradation between locations, so if the Tower of Astronomy is written, it means both the room at the bottom of the tower and the hall leading to it.

General tips for finding icons:

If the icon is behind a grate or gate, use Wingardium Leviosa to pick it up, then throw it against the wall to break it. After that, pick up and take him out of the bars and use the Reparo to fix him. If the badge is hanging high on the wall, pick up objects with Wingardium Levios and throw them at him until he falls down, usually it will take several tries. If the icon is in a bush, tree, or spider web, use Insendio to light a fire, and then burn the tree or bush. Some badges can only be obtained after you get the fourth level or the seventh level of the badge collector, since the first one places “Dung bombs” in multi-colored boxes, and the second – explosive pots. If you see an icon next to which there are no objects, it means that it is too early for you, and a box or pot will appear here when you get the desired collector level.

A way to win quick and easy duels:

When you learn how to use the Levicorpus spell, use it immediately at the beginning of the duel. When the enemy hangs, come close to him (then the spells will hit accurately, without dissipating) and hold down the right mouse button to accumulate spell power. For weak opponents, one hit with a super spell is enough, for stronger opponents, two hits will be enough, or one enhanced super spell (hold down the right mouse button even longer).

When you hit the Expelearmus spell, move clockwise (as if you want to cast the Expelearmus spell), and Harry will start to get up faster!
