I have completed playing through the Lego Harry Potter Year 5-7 DS game, at points I tried to find a full walkthrough for the DS version of the game but was unable to find anything. So in order to give something back to the Nintendo DS world, I’ve decided to create my own walkthrough as I re-play the game.

You may also want to check out Lego Harry Potter Years 5-7 for Xbox 360 or Lego Harry Potter Years 5-7 on the Nintendo Wii as the DS game is doesn’t have everything the larger console games do.

I will be posting separate posts for each chapter of the game while I re-play it, once I have finished I will combine all of my posts together to create a full walkthrough which you can print off and use.

I hope you find this useful, please comment with your thoughts as this is my first ever walkthrough.

Ok then…

Lego Harry Potter Years 5-7 Walkthrough for Nintendo DS and 3DS

Year 6 – Chapter 4

The Cave Entrance

 

You will find yourself in a dark cave, in order to see where your are, use the ‘Lumos’ spell to light up the area.

Make your way up the path of cave until you reach a large light orb, walk into the light orb to light up the area.

(Elphias Doge Character) – (Free Play Mode) Switch to a character with the ‘Pet’ ability (e.g. Hermione) and use the ‘Pet’ ability to dig up the chest which is submerged into the rocks. Press the A button to open the chest to gain the Elphias Doge Character token.

(Wizards Hat) – Switch to Dumbledore’s character and head to the far left of the room. Use the ‘Deluminator’ ability on the lit light and light the light next to the gold gate to the right. The gold gate will open and you can gain the Wizards Hat.

Stand to the right of the chest which is sticking out of the ground and use the ‘Wingardium Leviosa (WL)’ spell to raise the stepping-stones in the water. Use the stepping-stones to get to the central platform. Note: You will need to jump on the stepping stone and raise the second one as quick as possible to get across to the central platform.

(Minister Rufus Scrimgeour Character) – When on the central platform use the ‘WL’ spell on the bell pieces to put it together. Shoot the bell and a bat will fly down with a character token, shoot the bat and collect the Minister Rufus Scrimgeour Character token.

Use the ‘Deluminator’ ability on the light next to the bell to get the light.

Use the ‘Wingardium Leviosa (WL)’ spell to raise the stepping-stones in the water. Use the stepping-stones to get to the far left platform. Note: You will need to jump on the stepping stone and raise the second one as quick as possible to get across to the far left platform.

Use the ‘Deluminator’ ability to put the light in the light to the right of the gold gate.

The gate will open and you’ll see a red wall, stand on the red glow on the floor and press the A button. Use the directional buttons to cut the circle out of the wall and use the ‘WL’ spell on the pieces that fall from the wall.

Use the ‘Deluminator’ ability to get the light again and stand in the middle of the red ring that is created. Press and hold the A button to send you to another area and leave you standing in the middle of a ring circle.

Use the ‘Deluminator’ ability again to put the light in the unlit light and get the light from the other light; this will put a handle on the crates so that you can make them in to stairs. At the top of switch your character to Harry and use the Parseltongue cabinet; this will open the other yellow ring. Use the ‘WL’ spell on the yellow ring to put it into place.

Use the yellow rings to get back and forth between the two platforms and use the ‘Deluminator’ ability to move the lights to the three lights around the far left door on the lower platform. For the third light you will need to get the light from the one you lit to get the wizards hat; this will open the door and allow you to continue.

You will find yourself in another dark cave, use the ‘Lumos’ spell to see where you are going and watch out for the gaps in the path.

Make your way along the path until you get to another light orb again, this will light up the area.

(Professor Flitwick Character) – (Free Play Mode) Head back over the bridge and you’ll see a gate with a character token behind it. Switch to a ‘Dark Magic’ character (e.g. Professor Umbridge) and use ‘Dark Magic’ to open the gate and gain the Professor Flitwick Character token.

(Regenerate Hearts Red Brick – Part 1) – (Free Play Mode) Switch your character to Luna Lovegood and use the ‘Spectraspecs’ ability to reveal the pile of Lego bricks to the far left of the area; this will create a rock statue. Switch to a ‘Dark Magic’ character (e.g. Professor Umbridge) and use ‘Dark Magic’ to gain some studs.

At the bottom of the ramp, use the ‘Reducto’ spell to brick up the rocks; this will reveal a temperature valve. Use the ‘WL’ spell on the valve to cut off the fire going across the path and proceed.

(Wizards Hat) – (Free Play Mode) Switch your character to Hermione and use the ‘Pet’ ability to free the bag spot from the rocks. Use the bag spot to find a hammer and chisel and use the ‘WL’ spell to break up the rock to the left of the temperature valve. This will reveal a fountain with a Wizards Hat at the top of the water. Jump on the water to gain the Wizards Hat. 

(Regenerate Hearts Red Brick – Part 2) – (Free Play Mode) Switch your character to Luna Lovegood and use the ‘Spectraspecs’ to reveal the pile of bricks. Use the ‘WL’ spell on the bricks to build a second rock statue. Switch to a ‘Dark Magic’ character (e.g. Professor Umbridge) and use ‘Dark Magic’ to destroy the statue. Switch back to Luna Lovegood and do same again with the pile of bricks to the far right of the area to gain the Regenerate Hearts Red Brick.

Switch your character to Dumbledore and use the ‘Deluminator’ ability to move the light to the far right to the light above the devils snare vines.

(Wizards Hat) – Shoot the two skeletons to gain a Wizards Hat.

Make your way up the ladder and use the ‘WL’ spell on the snake. Then use the ‘Reducto’ spell on the snake to destroy it and press and hold the A button to pull on the handles on the column.

Shoot the two skeletons to get the key which the skeleton swallowed and place it in the boat pulley. Press and hold the A button on the boat pulley to get the boat and jump on the boat to continue.

Use the ‘Lumos’ spell to see your way and head to the right to get the light orb to light up the area.

(Unlocked 5 Characters) – To the south of the fountain in middle of the area, shoot the rocks and you’ll find the Unlock 5 Characters token; it is difficult to describe where the rock is because the camera moves around.

(Wizards Hat) – (Free Play Mode) To the right of one of the lamps you’ll see a semi-transparent Wizards Hat. Switch your character to Luna Lovegood and use the ‘Spectraspecs’ ability to gain the Wizards Hat.

In this area you need to collect three gold goblets and drink away all of the cursed water to get the horecrux. This is pretty self-explanatory, use Dumbledore to move the light to get the gold goblins and fill them up with the fountain in the middle of the area. If you wish me to write this section step by step I will do that on request.

At this point you will watch a rather long cut screen but don’t be fooled this isn’t the end of the chapter.

You’ll find yourself in a fiery cave, make your way up the path and jump over the fiery logs as the roll down the hill.

After the cut scene kill the death eaters and collect the coins around the area.

(Argus Filtch Character) – To the top-left of the area you’ll see an arrow made out of coins, collect the coins to reveal the Argus Filch Character token.

Use the ‘Diffindo’ spell on the red wall at the top-left of the area and then use the ‘WL’ spell on the Lego bricks that came from the wall to create a barrel to break through the fiery barrier.

Make your way down the newly opened path, Bellatrix Lestrange will throw a pumpkin at you, use the ‘WL’ spell on the broken pumpkin and then use the ‘WL’ spell on the pumpkin again to attack Bellatrix Lestrange.

(Professor Sinistra Character) – (Free Play Mode) Head to the where Bellatrix Lestrange was throwing pumpkins from, switch to a ‘Strength’ character and press and hold the A button to open the gate. Shoot the scarecrow in the centre of the area to gain the Professor Sinistra Character token.

Use the ‘Reducto’ spell to kill the snakes and jump over the flaming logs and cross the bridge (where the coins are positioned).

Use the ‘Reducto’ spell on the next two snakes and make your way down the path. You’ll then be entered into a duel with Snape at the bottom of the steps. Attempt to defeat Snape, I have been unable to defeat Snape so I’m not 100% sure whether it is possible. Either way, exit via the blue exit platform.

  • Thank you very much for reply to my e-mail. Your walkthrough is the best I have ever used.It has been a great help.

  • thank you for a great walkthrough, best I’ve ever used.

  • Liz

    My daughter has been driving me mad for 4 days as she can’t seem to complete this level. She gets to the point whenshe has released the second yellow circle to dissaparte and then can only go from the raised level by the 3 light door and not back again – she keeps trying to go back via the stepping stones but this won’t work – please could you help it is drving me mad

    • Tasha

      Hi Liz,

      This also drove me mad, you/your daughter needs to use the directional keypad to move between the left/right circles to get to the centre. Once you rock the directional D Pad you’ll understand what I mean. Sorry for the delay with my response, I will try and respond a bit quicker next time.

      Hope this helps.

      Thanks,
      Natasha

  • Annie

    I have tried using the deluminator, but the game wont let me light anything. I have a 3d ds btw.

    • Tasha

      Hi Annie,

      Sorry for the delayed response, I’ve been having a few problems with receiving my emails.
      Are you holding down the A button and using the direction buttons to target the light? Once you have targeted the light release the A button and it should beam into the deluminator.

      Hope that helps.

      Thank you,
      Natasha

  • Clare

    I have got off the boat and found the bright light but that’s as good as it gets. I cannot take light from the large light and I certainly can’t light the thing on the bottom of the goblet. Please help!!personal

    • Natasha Allsopp

      Hi,

      Which light are you referring to? There is a large ball of light which you need to walk into while using the Lumos spell. There is also the light from the lamps around the water which you use the Deluminator spell to move the light to the light under the goblets. It will only let you light one goblet at a time, you need to take the goblet back to the centre of the room and drink the water before moving onto the next light and goblet.

      I hope this helps you out, if not give me a bit more information about what you are trying to do and I’ll see if I can help.

      P.S. I have noticed that the game has bugs and sometimes doesn’t let you use the Deluminator spell, if this happens you just need to restart the game and hopefully it will drop you back where you left off.

      Many thanks,

      Natasha

  • Clare

    Thanks very much for your help. The problem was the Deluminator spell. Now I have finished level 6/4. I have found your walkthroughs very good. Clare

    • Natasha Allsopp

      Hi Clare,

      Glad you managed to finish the level, I had loads of problems with that Deluminator spell so don’t worry about it. Enjoy the rest of the game and don’t forget to pop back if you need any more help.

      Many thanks,

      Natasha

  • Sam P

    My son is stuck on the cave entrance and the red wall can only be cut a quarter of the way through? Please help – we are very frustrated! Thanks.

    Sam

    • Natasha Allsopp

      Hi Sam,

      Like I mention through my walkthrough I have noticed many bugs with this game, sometimes you just need to move the directional buttons in a different direction and it will work. I have had a few problems with the red walls, if you hold the A button and use the direction buttons to cut the wall it should work, if not turn the game off and restart it; that usually fixes it for me.

      I hope you manage to get through it, good luck.
      Would you mind popping back and letting me know whether or not my suggestions work please?

      Many thanks,

      Natasha

      • Rob Sevy

        Once i get the first goblet the snake vreathes fire how do i get past this?

        • Anonymous

          You should walk in another direction. This will bring you to one of the paths that takes you to the centre, which is where you will have to drink one third of the bewitched water. I hope this helps you. Regards.

  • Hi,

    I’m inside the yellow ring and I finish the part of doing the red circle and stairs part. I’m trying to transport between the two yellow circles. Then these yellow triangles pop up around my character. I tried everything but I cannot transport. Help!!

    • Natasha Allsopp

      Hi Nicoletta,

      When the yellow triangles appear use the direction buttons to select a triangle and then release the action button, you will then we transported to the other yellow ring. This only happens if there is more than one transport location.

      Hope that’s helps.

      Natasha

  • brooke

    hi i am stuk with the yellow circles and i have a dsi these yellow triangles kep coming up and i have tryed what u say but it dosent work i have been stuck on this level for over a year and i am really annoyed

    • Natasha Allsopp

      Hi Brooke,

      I’m really sorry to hear your having trouble with the yellow circles. I’m not sure why they won’t work for you, I know it took me time to get to grips with it so it might be technique. Try this…

      1. Stand in the circle with Harry or Ron (there are some character which cannot us the yellow circles).
      2. Press and hold the A button (the key is to hold the button). – You should see a load of directional arrows come up on the screen.
      3. When the arrows show up, using the directional key pad, press and hold the directional key and you’ll see the arrows light up (you can move to a different arrow by pressing and holding different directional keys.
      4. When the arrow you wish to move towards is selected let go of the A button and your character should transport. If you character doesn’t transport try a different character or a different direction until you have got it working, this was a trial and error process for me too.

      I hope that’s helped you continue the game.

      Good luck, please let me know how you get on.

      Natasha

  • Marauder52611

    I am on the island with the horcrux, but Dumbledore won’t take the light with the deluminator! I don’t know how to get it!

    • alsobubbly

      Hi Marauder52611
      If I remember correctly you have to do it in a particular order. If you can’t get the light from one try another until it lets you.
      If that doesn’t work then try coming out of the game and go back in as it maybe a bug in the game.

      Hope this helps.

      Thanks
      Natasha

  • Cassie

    I have reached the cave entrance and cannot turn on any lights, can you help?

    • Tasha

      Hi Cassie,
      Sorry for the delay, you need to use the ‘Lumos’ spell to light up the area, along the path you’ll see big balls of light which will light up the area.
      Hope that helps?

      Natasha

  • Liz

    I can not get the handle to break after destroying the snake, I can’t get the key to get the boat.

  • Flying Ponies

    I can’t get the ‘Flitwick’ character token as there is a hole or something that means I can’t walk over and grab it?

  • Atlanta

    What about the 5th wizard hat?

  • ananya giliyal

    thanks a lot

  • Annonymous

    Where is the 5th Wizard’s Hat?

  • Eshlinikol

    So i had a lot of problems with year 6 chapter 4, when Dumbledore uses the deluminator to catch the light on the pole beside the lake it crashes the pole into the lake and 4 or 5 skeletons pop out of the lake. The deluminator will not work as long as the skeletons are alive. The imperious curse I as good because it forces one skeleton to kill another until there is only one skeleton left you can defeat easily with reducto. After all the skeletons are dead Dumbledore can use his deluminator again and the orb will light up running the devil snare off the ladder.

    Also, if you get cornered x to harry and draw them toward the fire and then put on the invisibility cloak and walk across the cave. It’ll give you room to breath before you take the cloak off and destroy them.

    But yeah, I thought it was a bug too. But no bug, just skeletons to be rid of.

  • jake

    I beat snape and it gets you a purple stud and then the game progresses as normal

  • Roald U.

    I can only find two piles of bricks when using the spectraspecs, and when I build them both into statues and destroy them both with dark magic, I don’t get the red brick.
