How to solve the Black Paintings – Like a Moth to a Frame

I’m sure you’ve seen those oval, black, empty paintings when you walked around Hogwarts? Basically frames without paintings – lots of them! There is a pupil trying to solve the riddle at The Library Annex main hall and she’ll give you the quest “Like a Moth to a Frame”. This is how to solve the framed blackness.



PLAY ON WORDS!

The quest title “Like a Moth to a Frame” should sound familiar to you. It sounds like a quite common frame to describe when someone or something feels drawn to a someone or something. Did it click yet?

LIKE A MOTH TO A FLAME

Get closer to the black frame, pull out your wand to use “LUMOS” – Light. The black picture inside the frame magically fills with a lively, colourful picture. It’s a location you have to find.

WHAT MOTH?

So now I keep running around in the purple circle on the mini map to find the location. Ah… it looks like the big station on the bottom of the stairs! As I get there, I pull out my wand and cast “LUMOS” again and whooosh! The moth is attracted to the light on my wand and madly starts to swirl around it!

I return back to the former black, and now filled frame to realise that is has a big moth shaped mould below the painting. So, I just turn off “LUMOS” and the moth nestles itself into the frame.



FIELD GUIDE PAGE!

As I see the familiar scroll appear that is usually visible after I’ve found a “Field Guide Page” Collectible, I’m just happy that I found 1 of 23 Field Guide pages and now I will find even more after this magical discovery.

Hopefully it will help you too! – More to come!
