Minehut Featured Server: PotterTale

By January 19, 2019

Super League is kicking off a new Featured Server series where we’ll be showing off amazing Minehut servers! Want your server featured on the Super League blog? Fill out this form and we’ll reach out if we want to showcase your server next!

Welcome to PotterTale!

Are you on your local Quidditch team? Do you know your Patronus? Do you rep your house colors?

If so, it’s time for you to explore the wizarding world of PotterTale, a Harry Potter-inspired Minehut server! Transport into PotterTale.minehut.gg now via your Minecraft client to roam the halls of Hogwarts and beyond.

How It Works

  • You’ll need the texture pack to get the full experience. Download it by joining the PotterTale Discord.
  • Are you a Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, or Slytherin? Get sorted in the Great Hall.
  • Earn House Points as you play. Houses are awarded at the end of every week.
  • Explore Hogwarts and its surrounding areas for Treasure Chests filled with random potion ingredients, as well as Galleons, Sickles, and Knuts.
  • Fight mobs of Trolls, Dementors, and Fire Crabs. More creatures will be added in the future!
  • It wouldn’t be a wizarding world without magic! Learn and use spells to enhance your adventure.
  • Fly with brooms, which are elytras with a twist. You get a rocket which you can use an unlimited amount of times to boost you. However, it does have a 3-second cooldown.

Revelio!
It takes a true PotterHead to make PotterTale, so we asked eem50 to tell us more about the making of the magical server:

How long did it take you to make the server?

“This is a project I have been working on for so long, so the most enjoyable memory is seeing the first few players getting the chance to see what this server was about. Of course the whole Harry Potter lore inspired me, but mostly it was other Harry Potter servers. I decided to give it a shot on my own.”

What’s your favorite Harry Potter movie/book?

“Definitely Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. It feels really magical, like you only have a small glimpse of a huge magical world. The PC game is also epic and very nostalgic. It’s a great inspiring game for this server.”

What house are you in?

“I don’t want to pick a favorite to be honest. It’s mostly the players on the server that make the houses special and give them their own character.”


Tips & Tricks

  • There are secrets hidden in Hogwarts where there are additional Treasure Chests. You can find them by searching behind paintings, pressing buttons, or using spells appropriately. They are all based on the original Harry Potter games (“Mainly ‘The Chamber of Secrets’ because that game is so cool,” says eem50) where players explored Hogwarts and discovered secrets by using spells on their environment to unlock room. With these secrets, PotterTale possesses some light puzzle mechanics in the server.
  • Use the spell alohomora to open iron doors; this will allow you to access storing rooms which are filled with loot.
  • Brooms are the best items at the moment, because they provide mobility to roam around the map really quickly.
  • Cosmetic wand skins and spell books are also great items, but both will cost a good amount of Galleons.
  • Be a good student! Professors teach spells that aren’t available in the shops yet. Classes also usually contain a challenge at the end in which you can earn House Points.
  • The classes usually contain a challenge at the end of the lesson where you can earn House Points and Galleons.
