Explorer Badge

Postby Patronus Felicis » May 2nd, 2015, 1:42 pm

Hi! :D

My name is Emmy and I'm in Hufflepuff house.
I've been searching the internet about this for a while but I can't seem to find anything that works. Some people may know about the glitch with the explorer badge? If not, it's a glitch that makes you completely frustrated. When you've explored the whole first book you won't get you badge how hard you even try. I have this problem.

I have probably checked a thousand times if all the bars are filled - and they are! I honestly don't know what to do anymore, I just want the bloody badge.. Can someone help me? It feels like I've tried everything.

With best regards,

I WANT THAT BADGE :(

Hi Emmy! :D Welcome to PFF. Pottermore has added new potion ingredients that you can find in different chapters throughout the site. You may want to go through each chapter one more time.

Oh, I had the same issue with the Explorer Badge for the longest time. I'm trying to remember what I finally did to fix this bug...

I think it finally showed up after I went back through every scene and discovering the new jelly beans they released a couple weeks ago. So, I guess do try again through the moments, one more time, and see if it does the trick.

Welcome to PFF Emmy! (lol, we have a user on here who goes by Emmy :lol:)
Tee and Hermione's advice is pretty good, and I also suggest starting at the beginning and going through the Philosopher's Stone one at a time, making sure you don't miss anything. If you're on a laptop/computer, I always move it around until it hits something and the thing's edges start glowing, then I click and collect it. After collecting something always make sure it is definitely gone! That helps you make sure you got everything. I hope you get the badge!

What's those ''read all about it''- things on the right side though? And why are there red feathers on some of them? :o I don't quite get that, is it included that I have to ''explore'' those too? And how? (all these questions...)

Welcome Emmy. Great to have a puff around. Feel free to post in the Entrance Hall or play in this month's forum House Cup.

About the red feathers, they're just extra information on the book about the characters, scenes or other information that we didn't know about. I'm pretty sure you don't need to "explore" them. :lol: They are really interesting though, you find out so much about the characters.

Thanks Pumpkin, then I guess I'll just have to contact Pottermore because absolutely nothing is working :lion:
And yes, they are quite interesting, I had no idea Hagrid had feet with the size of a baby dolphin :shock:

I really hope you sort it out, Emmy.

You can find out how to contact them here and you can, if you're willing to check PS once again, look here for our complete guide to Pottermore. It tells you everything to look for, in case you may have missed something.
