    Seems like ALL Foundables on this page will be easily available, making prestiging highly attainable. Excellent!

    For me this event is just about book harvesting. My Registry is fully inlaid in gold. Perhaps I still need a couple of stars...

    I need DADA' s for further progressing in the SOS trees. At his moment I'm out of options...

    Still I'm looking forward to it...

    Also, just curious, why does a Dark Arts centered event have Magizoology Runestones in the the Ministry Supplies Bundle for sale in the shop? 🤔

    Are we only going to be able to return knockturn alley signs in chamber battles? That's the only item returning in Wizarding challenges for me no matter what chamber or number dark arts runestone I use. When choosing a runestone and clicking on the ... afterwords there are no chances for any other item on dark arts pages.

    Same. Same to everything that’s been said. Just SUPER disappointed that we won’t be getting a shot at some rarer DA foundables. Is there going to be an explanation for this...or are we supposed to just take it and be grateful? 🙄

    @AccioSparks204 Just wondering, where did you see that? Did they post about it in another thread?

    @CeruleanGirl It isn't a bug. It was a poor decision. This is how Wizarding Weekends are. They are designed so that you can get some of the rare foundables. They are designed so that you cannot prestige the page multiple times, so they always leave out one or two foundables.

    Since their graphics showed the those found on the map, they chose to keep you from prestiging multiple times by making Knockturn Alley Sign the guaranteed fortress foundable. In order to do that for weekend events in the past, they changed the other two to Emergency foundables. This is how it has been done up to this point and this is how it will likely continue to be done.

    Usually, if people want to prestige twice, they make sure that they have the unavailable foundables already collected by the start of the event. OrangeWizard included the incorrect info in their Graphics and Discord managers announced the info based on the graphics, so it led to a lot of confusion and poor planning. As these people don't directly work for Niantic, Portkey, or WB; the responsibility for the false information does not fall on to the HPWU team. So, there will be no changes to the event.
