Secret Pan Forms

You can find different forms for Pan, like a cardinal for the bird or a badger for the rodent. Some scenery in different areas is revealed as a secret area after using the Alethiometer 'Reveal Secret' formula. The Badger is found in one of 2 geode-rock things in the first 3 levels, the College has the Barn Owl and Moth, and the Coulter's Army level contains the Cardinal. A Racoon is found in Bolvangar behind large boulders in stands of trees.

Easy Stuff (Mainly Sky Iron)

Use Pan's bird form to fly around and check atop any ledges you can not reach with lyra. If there is a goodie up there, grab it with Y and fly down or up to where Lyra is and drop it on her head. If there is a box, go into cat form and use A to smash it.
