    Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince
    Crest Locations
    On Hogwarts, there are a total of 150 crests to collect. 
    25 of those you get by collecting mini-crests.  
    You need a total of 25000 mini crests. 
    You can get these crests by casting Depulso on glowing objects. 
    The other 125 crests are hidden on Hogwarts and for you to find. 
    I am trying my best to describe the locations. 
    There are several ways to collect crests:
    #	Some are lying on the ground. Just walk over them.
    #	Some are out of reach but visible. 
    	Cast Wingardium Leviosa.
    #	Some are on a plateau on the wall or are hold by a statue. 
    	Cast Wingardium Leviosa on a nearby object, 	
    	like a bench or flowerpot, and knock them of there position.
    #	Some lay broken  on the floor. Cast Reparo.
    #	Some are stuck in or behind a plant. 
    	Cast Incendio to set them free.
    #	Some are behind a gate. Cast Depulso to break them. 
    	Then Wingardium Leviosa to get them through the gate. 
    	Then Reparo to fix them.
    #	Some are behind a spider web. 
    	Cast Incendio on the web and Wingardium Leviosa on the crest.
    There are also lion statues who are holding a crest. You have to 
    complete a sort of mini quest to set it free. This can be a duel or 
    making a potion. There are 10 of these lion statues to find.
    There are also specific banners hanging from the ceiling. You have to 
    hit these banners, a couple on a row, to  release the crest. 
    There are 5 of these banner runs.
    Then there are firework boxes. Set them of with Incedio to release 
    the crest. Then cast Reparo to fix it. There are 5 firework boxes to find.
