    Does this event weekend affect Fortress rewards? Each chamber I've received Dark Arts rewards for only gave Knockturn Alley Signs. The "possible rewards" only shows the signs and not the Magic is Might or Riddle Gravestone foundables. Is this a glitch or intended?

    @laterpooh You are posting on the wrong event. Your comment is in regards to the Wizarding Weekend.

    Yes, Knockturn Alley Sign is the only foundable that you will be able to get from Challengers, when using Dark Arts runestones. This is how it has worked every Wizarding weekend.

    @BenTiger I just realized this when I came looking to see if there was a response and couldn't find my original comment. My apologies.

    And portkey 1/2 km will be no more again now.

    @Yohanes12 That is PoGo. This is HPWU. They both use Niantic's AR framework, but this game is also partially managed by WB/Portkey, so you can't assume that all PoGo changes are the same as HPWU changes.

    You also completely missed the point of his post and my post previous to his.

    Well, @Bentiger, technically you could walk 5 of the 1(2) km portmanteaus instead of the 1.5(3) km brilliant portmanteaus and still get the foundable. But yeah, I agree, strange and kind of pointless choice....

    They are really pushing the Wizarding XP in this one, aren't they?

    @Fireyswan No, the events should not only take 3 1/2 - 4 hours to complete. You have a whole week to complete the event. What would be the point of having that much time if you can complete it in a few hours?

    Personally, I tend to finish it quickly simply because in Las Vegas, I like to stay home in my AC as much as possible, so I try to finish as much as I can in one or two trips to spend some time in my local POI/Trace hot spots. It looks like this event will take a little more time than they usually do, but still should be easily completed in the week we are given.

    I'm a maxed Magi, it's taking me 3-6 spells to return each brilliant foundable. And for only 75 XP?! Will the SOS Training General Spell Mastery skills help cut down on that?
