On Friday, Pottermore announced that the sixth Pottermore House Cup will be awarded on September 26.
Pottermore users have three weeks to earn as many House Points as they can until the Hogwarts house with the most points is announced on Friday, September 26.
As with tradition, House Cup celebrations will include House Pride Week, during which a day is dedicated to each house for members’ to show their house pride on social networking sites. House Pride Week will kick off Tuesday, September 16 with #GryffindorPride, followed by #RavenclawPride, #HufflepuffPride, and #SlytherinPride. The Insider is set to give more details on how the community can get involved on Tuesday.
The Insider also included some helpful tips for earning House Points:
Revisit the interactive Moments and make sure your discovery bar is complete – every collectible you find (excluding Galleons) adds to your points
Make sure you practise duelling against your own house to master casting spells before you challenge the other houses, as every duel lost means more points to the opposing house!
Pay careful attention to the instructions for brewing potions before you begin – if you can’t remember the instructions, don’t forget to check the potion book
Get your fellow housemates involved! The more of you there are earning points for your house the better, so rally the troops in the Great Hall and in your common room
Now that all the Houses have won the House Cup at least once, which do you think will take home the Cup this time? Will Slytherin be victors for a third time? Can Ravenclaw triumph again for a second consecutive win? Or will Gryffindor or Hufflepuff bring the Cup back to their Houses? Despite whichever, we wish all houses the best of luck! Happy Dueling and Brewing! 🙂
