Gringotts: Bonus Levels One Through Five
If you haven’t noticed by now, Gringotts Wizarding Bank is accessible at the end of Diagon Alley, just like in level one of gameplay. In Diagon Alley, though, Gringotts holds ten bonus levels that you must play in order to get all 200 Gold Bricks (or complete the game to 100%). These levels are fairly easy and shouldn’t take long to complete, especially if you have already played through all of the main levels.
The main goal in level one is to collect as many coins as possible. Some tips on playing this level: if you have trouble collecting coins when they’re spread out over large areas, purchase the Stud Magnet Red Brick before playing this level and activate it while playing. Then, use one of the many vehicles available in this level and just drive over anything you see to get coins. Or, to make this level go even faster, purchase a multiplying Red Brick before starting the level and activate it while playing. For example, if you’re using a 6x multiplier, each silver coin you collect is worth 60 instead of 10, each gold coin is 600, and each blue coin is 6000. You can also activate more than one multiplier (ex. activate 8x and 6x multiplier together, and the coins will be 48 times as much as usual) for even more coins.
When you go to play level two, two options will come up on the screen: Play Bonus Level or Become A Builder! Part 1 of 4. Right now, I’ll be focusing on Play Bonus Level Two, but later on I’ll explain the building part of the level.
Start the level as Harry. There are five buttons on the ground, each controlling a different platform on the ground. Press the corresponding buttons to help Ron reach you. Once he does, have him use Scabbers to crawl through the tunnel and open the gate. Step on the button on the ground and the other character will do the same, lowering the platform and letting you climb to reach the Gold Brick.
This time, your first goal is to make a potion. Jump on the bench and the other character will lift you to get the first ingredient. The second ingredient is on top of the flowers, and the third is down the stairs to the left. Drink the potion, pull the chain, and climb up to the closet to put on earmuffs. Pick up the Mandrake, shatter the glass, and pot it, then stand on one of the buttons to open the gate. The lower ground is now filled with lava. Try your best not to fall in at this part. Put the platforms into the middle and jump across to reach the Gold Brick at the end.
In this level, you’ll be playing as Ron and Hermione. Have one of them use their pet to climb through the tunnel. Use Lumos to remove the vines and go to the closet to put on earmuffs. Collect the two potion ingredients and add them to the cauldron, then pick up the Mandrake and smash the glass on the right. Pot it, then use Hermione to open the bookcase and get the final ingredient. Pull the chain to lower the platform and jump up, pushing the ball onto the ground. Use it to plug one of the holes in the ground, then climb up to where the closet is and turn the wheel to elevate the water level. Climb up to the other ball and push it down, then lower the water again and push it into the hole to plug it up and open the gate.
Have Ron use Scabbers to climb through the tunnel and stand on the button. Climb across and have Hagrid pull the chain, then have Scabbers climb through the tunnel and do the same as before. Collect the three ingredients for the potion at the end, and use it to switch to a Ravenclaw character. Go to the door at the far left and unlock it, then go inside and put on earmuffs. Carry the Mandrake back to the right side and use it to smash the glass in front of the tunnel. Switch back to Ron and have Scabbers go through the tunnel to reach the Gold Brick.
