The Hall of Herodiana: starting location and NPC
Sophronia Franklin isn’t getting in your way this time, she’s just in Charms class and will keep to herself if you find her.
She tells you about Herodiana Bryne, the greatest Depulso Master in history, who even briefly taught at Hogwarts before disappearing. She apparently built a secret Depulso training room at Hogwarts – as is being done right now – and her signature outfit is included in it. Sophronia wants you to retrieve it.
The hall is at the base of the Defense Against The Dark Arts tower, which means you’ll have to go all the way down each flight of stairs and to the right to find the switch. Activate it with Depulso to enter the secret passage.
Puzzle Room #1
Climb onto the crates in the center and use Depulso to open the back doors, then climb off the crate and Depulso from the crates to the other end to advance. You will come to a small chest that contains Herodiana’s cloak.
Puzzle Room #2
These next two puzzles are more specifically called the Accio and Depulso Puzzles because you need both to advance. Fair warning, don’t stand directly in front of the boxes when moving them in the same direction or you’ll pass out and have to start over.
Accio the floating cube to the left, then accio the right set of cubes. Now Accio the left cube and depulso the double cubes while standing in front of them to push them towards the exit. Depulso will open the doors and get Herodiana’s clothes from the chest.
Puzzle Room #3
Climb over the first wall and stand below it on the right. Accio the block on the opposite wall, then Depulso it away. Climb to the leftmost two blocks sticking out over the gap and aim for the small cube you’ve seen in every room so far and hit it with magic. This will reset the puzzle.
Now accelerate the block and accelerate again to make your way forward. But that’s not all, there’s also a chest in that room behind you that’s only accessible by navigating the block.
To get the chest you have to go this way from the beginning:
Depulso straight one block, then left two blocks and Depulso from there. Now accelerate it towards the reset cube and accelerate towards you again. Speed it up again and use it to climb the ledge.
When you exit the room, get Herodiana’s cap. Now go back to Sophronia.
You have the option to show her the clothes, show her for a fee, or if you really didn’t like her quiz, be mean and flat out refuse. She declares you her second favorite hero when you commit, for what it’s worth.
Here is the full Herodiana outfit. To be fair, it’s quite a nice cape.
