Seems like there are a lot of people experiencing this issue, I haven't found any mystery items yet either. I' m stuck on the London Five and Redacted Report assignment too.
Thanks to everyone in this thread trying to generate attention for the issue. Some of you are a lot more proactive and tenacious than me...
I would like to suggest that Tonic for Trace Detection also increase potion ingredients at least for "Play at Home" events if not permanently. I am having a lot of trouble getting ingredients while playing on my 55+ community trails. I use Tonic, and get traces, but few ingredients. Thanks.
Done with SOS. Found 3 today :) just fyi.. werewolves are out!!!
@CleverCapricorn No, it’s 3 from this page.
@CleverCapricorn no you do not. you need to place 3 images on the EVENT page, which is called hagrids hut interior, so place the brilliant baby beasts
@AndyRozman That may be so but remember: it is supposed to be challenging.
Also, my point was a counter to @SeverusVII's claim that the Devs didn't listen at all. The Devs did listen to the reasonable feedback:
... which they both adressed:
The Devs did (for good reason) ignore fundamentalist criticism along the lines "this is literally the worst, totally unplayable, never do this again".
@VoiceMaster I think it might just be the lag.
It takes about 10 seconds for a friend to show up on my screen after they enter the fortress.
Then it takes me about 25 seconds to wait for the lag to reach the runestone screen.
Then there is another 5 - 10 second lag before reaching the chamber.
So from the time you get into the chamber to the time I can get in (if I saw you pop up straight away), it is at least 40 seconds gone. Which means the soonest you are likely to get other players is 1m20 left on the clock, if they are searching for chambers already open.
Some days, however, there is no lag. I live for those days.
OMG! I guess using the potion would help since that is the assignment. Thanks! I don’t know how I misread that for this long...
However, without knowing people’s relative skills or levels, some people may not want to risk it. And, on a bad roll of foes, without the trinity I may be using potions I didn’t want to use.
@MtPollux correct, i meant 3-2 (or 3-1-1) can be done with ample time to spare (2:30+) if there is teamwork
