Sneak Peek at Pottermore Wand Selector

by FIA on September 1, 2011

One of our very own Administrators here at Pottermore Insider, FairlyOddMom, finally received access to Pottermore yesterday and she has been gracious enough to take pictures of the site to share with all of us.

Shown above is the wand FairlyOddMom purchased at Ollivanders.  It is Apple with Dragon Core.  To see the process she went through to discover which wand was best suited for her, come on in to our forum and take a look at her “Wand Journey” album.  FairlyOddMom has promised to bring us even more pictures as she explores more of the site

Have you joined the Pottermore Insider forum yet?  If not, what are you waiting for!  It’s free, it’s fun, and there’s no better way to stay connected with other Pottermore fans.  We’ll be with you through the Beta Testing and beyond.

Why haven’t I receive my pottermore welcome email yet?


SeekerBlood11 September 2, 2011 at 7:49 pm

Why did you guys post the wand questions? Wand sorting questions are the same for everyone! You do realize that Pottermore is in Beta Stage you practically spoiled this important detail for everyone else who hasn’t gotten in. While this site is so behind on Pottermore (so much for calling yourselves “Insiders”), no one else have posted sorting questions because this is against Pottermore’s copyright and Beta Stage Rules. Sorry, but we have reported this site.


Anna September 4, 2011 at 4:59 pm

If you don’t like it , then you can get off the page. And they might be behind because they recently got on Pottermore!!!


YewSword42 September 12, 2011 at 6:42 pm

FORGET YOU SEEKER BLOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! you dont know what youre talking about because pottermore reccommended pottermore insider and J.K.Rowling can do anything she wants because she made the sight so shut up
oh ya and by the way J.K.Rowling if you are reading this you are the awesomest person in the world!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


DragonRose8 July 23, 2012 at 2:34 pm

You can’t even spell ‘site’ properly. Get out :)


WillowWitch159 October 17, 2011 at 6:44 pm

Seeker Blood: seriously? these people want info you don’t have to take it away from them!! Anyway the wand questions aren’t COMPLETELY the same I had some different ones.

LoyalDeathEater September 5, 2011 at 12:53 am

I think its brilliant. Who cares if shes showing this? It dont matter if we see it or not, the questions and answers wont change. The fact is that people will answer how they want to, no matter what.
I cant wait for PotterMore!!


Anna September 5, 2011 at 8:43 am

I agree with you, but SeekerBlood has a point, it is against the rules for the beta testers to share pictures untill the site is open to all.


SkyNight165 September 7, 2011 at 10:17 pm

MANNNN this is so cool i just want my pottermore welcome email and i wont complain.
P.s how do you pick who gets welcome emails is it in order or do you pick names out of a hat????????????


Anna September 8, 2011 at 7:29 am

No, they don’t pull names out of a hat, they select at random I think, but they might go in Alphabetical Order by last name, but I don’t know. It might go by the day that you registeres.


hi September 8, 2011 at 8:29 pm

its not alphabetical any way cuz i would have gotten my email on like the first day


Anna September 9, 2011 at 7:22 am

Well, it doesn’t really matter anymore sense they are being sent out daily now! Now we’ll all have our emails soon!!!! TEAM DUMBLEDORE!!!!!!


YewSword42 September 11, 2011 at 7:12 pm

the wand selection is so cool i want mine now but i still have to wait


YewSword42 September 11, 2011 at 7:13 pm

right now i think im the only person on the insider


sangreal167 September 12, 2011 at 10:42 am

I think I accidentally deleted the message of pottermore in my email, how can I receive another one?


YewSword42 September 12, 2011 at 6:34 pm

i think you just have to wait
but if you cross index the accessory words to your new mail from trash or old you can activate your email by pressing ctrl phgcz and alt derf it should work and if not sue me
just kidding but really try it and remember to also name the date the email was sent to you and cross index that from your old or trash mail


LoyalDeathEater September 14, 2011 at 10:16 pm

Hey, i am a little lost, though. If im reading things correctly (which it is VERY possible im not) people that didnt find the magical quill are getting letters….. Did I miss something or what?


YewSword42 September 14, 2011 at 11:35 pm

maybe they were letters not having to do with registration but something like a “keep me posted” thing or something like that but i really doubt they are early entry letters unless you are sure


IceWolfsbane128 September 21, 2011 at 2:40 am

I was wondering if anyone could tell me why I cannot continue on with the story into The Chamber of Secrets? Iv completely done Philosophers stone inside and out and the next one remains grey and unlocked. Is there something special I have to do?


IceWolfsbane128 September 21, 2011 at 2:50 am

Locked I mean, not unlocked.


YewSword42 September 26, 2011 at 7:01 pm

G’day mate i wus just wonderin where are you from
it continues in 2015


SpiritLight198 September 26, 2011 at 7:16 pm

I keep getting kicked off Pottermore. I see friend requests in my e-mail and as soon as I can get back into Pottermore I will accept the requests. Also, does anyone know where I can find the list of items I need in order to get the money from Gringots?


WizardMidnight41 September 28, 2011 at 5:19 pm

Zoooooooooooom in, its hidden. If you can even get into the website. Unlikely…


Wisard sparks43 September 27, 2011 at 11:02 am

feathersparks149 September 29, 2011 at 1:12 pm

it wont work on q3 for me cos the button to move to the next question is hidden
has anyone else had this prob
and of course obviously it keeps braking down


SpiritLight198 September 29, 2011 at 2:08 pm

Thanks so much for all the help. I finally got to go shopping at Diagon Alley and got my wand. I was soooooo excited. My wand is Elm with a Phoenix Feather core, 10 and 3quarters inches solid. I can’t believe my core is a Phoenix Feather……

Hi potter fans


KennaBlack October 2, 2011 at 7:59 am

SpiritLight198 October 3, 2011 at 1:28 pm

Got a question. On the locked things at the top of the page when you sign into pottormore I have everything unlocked exept the very first lock. Does anyone know what that is or did I miss something in the beginning?


YewSword42 October 21, 2011 at 1:25 pm

nah i have the same thing maybe itll be like wizards chess or wizards duel or something cool u didnt miss anything


KennaBlack October 4, 2011 at 8:20 am

Err…I think you may have missed something in the beginning. Once again, i am not sure because i didnt get into Pottermore yet.


thegoldensnitch October 7, 2011 at 3:07 pm

YewSword42 October 7, 2011 at 4:24 pm

So no one ruin it for me. T.T please and thank you


YewSword42 October 13, 2011 at 7:03 pm

pottermore is really messed up potions is destroyed


Shadow October 13, 2011 at 9:52 pm

that sucks man…


stonehex206 October 14, 2011 at 12:02 am

Yew Sword has it right. Spent HOURS trying to brew today. Some potions took TWO hours for a 95 min potions. Now 11:35 EST. Just lost an Herbicide Potion because it took TWO HOURS AND FIVE MINUTES!!!! Can’t figure out when to come back and finish them!!! Pouring liquids is still problematical. Flobberworm has gotten better. The rest have NO MEASURING CAPABILITY!!!!

YO, PROGRAMMERS!!!!!!!!! Potions is actually FUN. I like figuring out how the heat controls and the dry measures work. But the liquids…read four letter words…But NO ONE is really playing with potions because it is so erratic and difficult. I have moved up from +/-14K to 1400 in House Ranking just from brewing potions in the the past week. And I haven’t topped 500 points yet!

It is NOT FUN to spend two hours putting together a potion, waiting for it to brew and then losing it because you didn’t come back at the right time or the liquid measures in the second part didn’t pour correctly. I have done loop the loops with the liquid bottles and had NOTHING register in the cauldron. I have tilted the bottle gently and had 3 measures recorded by the cauldron measure.

The stirrer is erratic. I have had the stirrer (I don’t know whether it is a spoon or not since I can’t see the end of the stick!) freeze, and had to watch the clock run out because I couldn’t STIR a PERFECTLY PREPARED POTION!!!!!!! And this is in the SECOND half, after I have waited 95 mins or 100 mins for it to brew.

You asked for BETA testers. I am sorry to put this in public domain because I think the site is wonderful. It has MAJOR potential for gamers and passive players, but there is nowhere on the site for us to leave these kind of comments!! “I like this screen.” “This is Pretty.” “This is fun.” These comments in the beta test response fields on the site are totally inadequate. Believe me, I used to do this for a living. I was an analyst!

So I know you are working now on Dueling because it is off line. But potions is really turning people off. It needs stabilizing. And when are we getting into Book 2? 1M players in Book 1 may be destablilizing the whole deal. Maybe it’s time to let a few of us out of the trap! Take the 50K house leaders and let them into Book 2? See what happens to the rest of the site. You can’t wait until it all goes public to do this…


stonehex206 October 14, 2011 at 1:20 am

OK. 1:20 AM EST. Lost the second Herbicide today. NOT CONTROL OVER THE POURING!!!!!!!

JEEZ!!! Traffic does not seem to affect this. Must be daytime over GUAM right now. Can’t imagine that many are on the site.


SpiritLight198 October 18, 2011 at 11:46 am

I don’t know what I am doing wrong. I have tried the unlocking spell in the Forbidden Corridor at least a hundred times and just can’t seem to get it right. Just driving me crazy!!!


stonehex206 October 18, 2011 at 8:16 pm

everything locked up. can’t get into the screens. can’t even sign OFF the site!!


stonehex206 October 21, 2011 at 6:03 pm

OK. Potions working much better after the down time this week. Stirrer and counter functioning well.


KennaBlack October 26, 2011 at 3:14 pm

Who can’t wait for next week? :) I can’t! I can’t.


KennaBlack October 28, 2011 at 3:57 pm

They extended the Beta period…again.
