Practice Brewing Cure for Boils

Postby LightGalleon13651 » July 15th, 2015, 7:27 pm

When I try to do the 'Practice Brewing Cure for Boils', I get to the fifth step that says to Wave Your Wand. When I wave my wand it stops me and says "Sorry, this potion was not brewed correctly because you did not complete all the steps in your potion book." As far as I know, I followed the previous steps in order and did all of them. What can I do to fix this? Thank you!

I've just tried this myself, and it's the practicing that's broken. I made a video on it:



As seen in there, I do the exact same for both practising and normal brewing, but the practise says it wasn't brewed correctly. The normal brewing works fine. It's quite odd, really!

When I started doing potions I got stuck for ever in the practicing. I thought I was doing someting wrong T-T ...

Yep, the practice potion never works. You pretty much have to go straight to regular brewing to succeed.

I got stuck on the "wave your wand" part while using my iPad Air for so long! I tried it so many times, doing different things to the wand, clicking in different spots, and finally found the right spot to click to make it work properly. It took me like 20 tries to finally get it right, but now it works every time as long as I click the exact spot. I think each device/browser/etc. may require a slightly different touch for waving the wand.

Ah, that explains it. Thanks Rhynn :).

I always wondered if it was just me messing something up or if the tutorial had a built in error. Now I know.
