Soon™️ is finally here - I am proud to present PotterPets!
Pets are little animals that will follow you around and look cute, but are unfortunately cosmetic only and won't join you in beating your enemies to death.
Everyone will have access to the owl pet by default, and more will be unlockable in the future via quests and the donation store (and yes, you can pet them)
To get started, visit Magical Menagerie in Diagon Alley, where you will be able to speak to Grenderwend the shopkeeper - however, there's a mystery you'll have to solve first.
You must first complete our new quest "The Curious Case of the Stolen Familiars" - our most advanced yet, with window smashing mechanics and two different endings depending on the choices you make!
Once you've purchased a pet, you can access them from the /pets menu - left clicking will spawn them, right clicking will allow you to manage them (more settings coming soon).
For a full list of commands, type /pets help
In the future, pets will have certain needs (like food!), and if neglected for too long while you're online, your pet might run away or die!
I hope you all enjoy this new addition to the server, and of course, direct any suggestions or bugs to the proper channels!
I'm pleased to announce a feature that's been in the pipeline for quite a while now - Player Housing!
Housing is a small, unique plot (base dimensions 32x32x64, upgradeable to 48x48x64) on which you are free to build anything upon. There are no mobs, no resets, and you can control exactly who has access to both visit and build upon it!
You can also choose to toggle flight, pvp, and spell casting, and we hope to expand on this in the future with more advanced customization options and possibly larger plot sizes.
To gain access to your housing plot, you must first complete a short quest, Business Ventures, which can be accessed via the Tobias NPC near the steps going up to King's Cross Station.
Once unlocked, you will be able to access all of the commands through /housing, which will allow you to add other players as friends, toggle various attributes, and choose whether to display a border around the buildable area or not.
The House Elf NPC on each plot can be used to purchase size upgrades and also contains a link to the Block Shop where you can purchase blocks to use for construction. You are also free to use the PvP world to harvest for items!
In the future, we may host events like building contests where you are challenged to build something on your plot under a particular theme, which will then be judged with prizes given out to winners!
As always, if you have any feedback, issues, or suggestions, please make them known via the forums or our Discord server.
Thank you for your support!
With Halloween almost upon us, I'd like to wish all of you a Happy Halloween on behalf of PotterCraft MC and its staff team!
Enjoy your sweets and don't eat too much!
Trick or Treat
It's Hallow's Eve once again, and all across the Wizarding World, adults and children alike are putting on their costumes, placing pumpkins outside their homes, and preparing for a night of fun!
However, there is danger about...
Some of these innocent people have become cursed, and are attacking anyone who comes to their door! Some will attack you outright, others will ask you a question, your fate determined by the answer you give.
You can Trick or Treat at Godric's Hollow, Hogsmeade Village or Grimmauld Place, and there are lots of treats to be had!
Collect as many as you can, and trade them in with the Envoy who recently arrived at Hogwarts!
Wilfred Broadwell is a renowned member of the Magical Order, esteemed potioneer, and recipient of the Order of Merlin 2nd Class.
Well, he was until he was found dead earlier this week!
Supposedly murdered by the Killing Curse, esteemed Auror Colt Cassowary has been tasked with investigating this mysterious crime. However, his partner has fallen ill and therefore is in need of a detective to assist his investigation!
You can find Colt in the Leaky Cauldron, but you better be fast because his partner is due back on November 14th.
A Strange Mystery
There have also been reports of cards with strange shapes left around Hogwarts... I wonder what could be going on here?
If your application's good and you do well in one position, then yes, you can apply for another if you think you can take on the dual responsibility!
I'm pleased to announce that we've decided to open up Professor applications for a short while!
Professors are the backbone of the server, who focus on teaching classes, marking homework, giving house points, moderation, and they quite often end up helping out in other areas of the server too!
It does require some work, but if you meet the requirements and are willing to give it a shot, you can apply here.
We wish the best of luck to all applicants, and if you have any questions, feel free to reply to this post or speak to us on our Discord!
