This is a time limited hobby, if you complete in 7 days you unlock the Wizard Costume Pack for your sims!

 Who can be a potion brewer?

Adult or teen

How can you be a potion brewer?

You need to complete the saved by the spell quest then buy a potion brewing cauldron from the sorcerous supplies store or promotions r us

Where can you be a potion brewer?

At home

What are the potion brewer options?

  • Brew Invisibility Potion- 2 hours 30 minutes
  • Brew Growth Potion- 3 hours 30 minutes
  • Brew Youth Potion- 4 hours 30 minutes
  • Brew Levitation Potion- 5 hours 30 minutes


The first time you complete this hobby you need to find all 3 different potions for each option before you can unlock the next, so you need to find all 3 invisibility potions before you can brew growth potion.

What potion brewing levels are there?

  1. Snake Oil Sire
  2. Tonic Brewer
  3. Aromatherapist
  4. Pot Stirrer
  5. Alchemist Assistant
  6. Potion Master

What potions are there to collect?

What do you win?

The first time you have 7 days to complete to unlock the wizard costume pack for toddlers, preteens, teens and adults

  

If you don’t complete in time you still unlock the wizards furniture pack!

These items can be found in the sorcerous supplies store once you have completed this hobby for the first time:

  • Water Barrel- S500
  • Purple Tapestry- S750
  • Long Tapestry- S2,000
  • Red Tapestry- S7,500
  • Cottage Oven- S1,500
  • Cottage Countertop- S3,500

The wishing well can be found in the sorcerous supplies store or the outdoor decorations section of buy mode for 10LPs

The cottage door can be found in the sorcerous supplies store or the doors section of buy mode for S2,500 and the cottage window can be found in the sorcerous supplies store or the windows section of buy mode for S2,500

The rugs are available in two colours and different sizes and can be found in the sorcerous supplies store or the rugs section of buy mode for S15,000, S10,000 or S7,500

The green rugs are the same size as the red rugs shown in the picture above

Further times you complete this hobby you will receive 3LPs

 I can’t find one of the potions, any tips?

The only advice I can really give you is to keep going, that is the only way you can find them- there is no trick to it, its completely random.

Is it worth using the lucky spin?

I would say no, it doesn’t give you one that you need it just gives you one at random so really it is probably just a waste of LPs

How do I start the collection again?

Once you have finished the collection you can click start a new collection at the top of the list to start over.

I hope this helps!

The Sims Freeplay- Adding Basements

Once you complete the Basement of Kings Quest you can build a basement under your houses, this post explains how to add a basement and all the ways you can customise it!

NOTE: you will not be able to resize a basement or add more rooms until you have completed the quest

20151024-181135.jpg

Building a basement

Building a basement is a lot like building a room except it is underneath your existing house. You can build the basement anywhere inside the grid area, even if it is larger than the rooms above.

The second orange tab in the house section of the home store is basements. Hold and drag anywhere on the ground to build a basement. Green means the room can be built.

20151024-182906.jpg

The white dotted lines show you were the rooms are above (the blue line is the outline of the pool):

20151024-183009.jpg

Drag the white highlighted edged to resize.

Adding Stairs

You need to add stairs to the basement to be able to access it. The red areas as shown in the picture below show you were items are on the floor above so the stairs cannot be placed there:

20151024-182826.jpg

If you want to place stairs somewhere you can’t, you have three options:

    1. Move items from the floor above so you have room
    2. Choose smaller stairs or an elevator that may fit
    3. Build another room in a clearer area (outside the house space so you can access the basement from outside)

20151024-182746.jpg

20151024-182753.jpg

Decorating the basement

You do this the same way you would decorate a new room

Deleting a Basement

While on the basement tab click on the basement room you wish to delete and select the red simoleon symbol to sell it. You can delete basement rooms even if there are rooms on the floor above.

For more details you can watch my video, Building Patios, Balconies and Basements

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT THIS QUEST

please read before asking

How do I start this discovery quest?

Firstly you need to complete the book of spells quest then you can find the wizard in the park to start this quest

Can I do discovery quests at the same time as a main quest?
Yes you can

Why can’t I do this discovery quest yet?
You cannot do more than one discovery quest at the same time, if you are currently on another one (the list can be found here) you will not be able to do this one until that one is completed

Do I have to do this quest?
If you don’t start the quest you don’t have to do it at all but if you have already started it you need to complete it before you can move on to the next quest

I haven’t started this quest yet, will it still be available when I want to do it?
Yes it will be, you can choose to start it whenever you like

I can’t get two sims to sit at the dinner table, everyone sits down before them!
There is a glitch on this goal, leave the park and go back, your sims need to sit down quickly before the other characters can

Why can’t I record a video apology to the werewolf?
You need to click on him and select the option

I can’t find the wizard to high five him, where is he?
All you can do is look around simtown for him, when you find him he should go back to his cottage

What do I get if I complete this quest in the time limit?
The wizards cottage

Where can I find the wizards cottage?
You can find it on the list of premade houses to build on an empty house lot

Why is it always daytime at the wizards cottage?
It just is, it isn’t a major problem though!

What happens if I don’t complete in the time limit, can I still finish this quest?

Can I still get the prize if I don’t complete in the time limit?
No, the only way to get the limited time prizes is by completing the quest in the time limit

I don’t like this quest! Can I just skip it?
No, you have to complete this quest before you can move onto the next one now that you have started it, if you don’t start it you don’t have to do it

Some times are slightly different on my game, why is this?
Times may vary depending on the star rating of the item you are using, as the higher star rating an item has the quicker you will complete a goal

Some times are really off/ different goals show for me, why is this?

This will be because the quest has been updated recently, I try my best to keep these posts up to date but it is difficult as I cannot redo every quest each time the game is updated. If you notice any changes please let me know so I can update the post

This quest unlocks the potion brewing hobby, does the time limit start straight away once I have completed this quest?
Yes, the time limit for the hobby starts straight away once this quest is complete, you can click no when the hobby pop up appears but this does not stop the timer going down


NOTE: Last updated June 2016.
