    Very happy with young harry, but the placing of 7 hogwarts images will be a challenge. Will be a busy weekend. 😁

    So does this mean that you are specifically upping potter and lupin or should we expect to see a huge amount of pixies with the boggart cabinet, Ron's and the occasional Hermione with the boggart and on a good RNG run a few Harrys and Lupins?

    Upping the percentage by a percent doesn't really help many of us outside high spawn areas.... 🤔

    @Yohanes12 I have no clue what you are asking, but this is likely the wrong thread, since it is for the Halloween event, not a Brilliant Event. If you are asking what the rewards are for completing tasks in the Brilliant Event, check that thread.

    No indeed, seems there is a brilliant event reward from darkness rising week one, since many people were not able to complete the page... bit strange but if it helps those players, then why not.

    Me too @BocaG ! I really thought this should be a priority fix since I have lost countless traces as they disappear after I come back out to put a trace charm on them. Very very frustrating!!🤬🤬🤬

    I had really hoped to see Swooping evil in the portkeys, would have fit the Halloween theme nicely. I missed the July event and have only seen 3 in 15 months of gameplay. Needless to say that page is still “standard” :(

    @Kodokmag me too. Centaur's really hard to find one, i hope there's CD oddities too.

    Shouldn't Neville and Young Hermione be included in the bogart foundables?

    @ClairabusGryff Don't expect it to be fixed any time soon. It has been well over 5 months since Wayfair sync has been broken and that is a core aspect of the game. They are too focused on events and trying to push out new content that they leave the bugs for extended periods of time, with only a single person assigned to troubleshoot them vs. a team.

    Oh, you’ll see a lot of Harry “before” you need


    That’s the way it is anymore with all of these events guaranteed the trace you currently do not need is the one that keeps appearing!

    @BenTiger and others,

    I think the real truth here is to make these events so difficult to try and get us to spend so much on spell energy and potions, which equals money for them, they could care less whether we actually finish an event and get these piddly rewards. They just want the profit from the gold they’re trying to force us to spend to complete the event!!

    @WitchHiker if I’m being honest, that ship sailed! When the SoS tree first appeared and I was having a blast with the new system I almost broke my no spending policy. I was having sooooo much fun with the trace charm and climbing the SoS tree that I was very close to buying potions to speed up my captures. We all know how that ended, so I guess I need to thank the powers that be for saving me money! I have a penchant for spending when a game is making me happy, I was sucked into a spending vortex with a Middle earth game and had to set limits on myself. I almost broke that rule but thankfully fate intervened.

    Re: Event portkeys for Tom Riddle Sr.'s Gravestone and Wizengamot Accusation Chair - what about the Magic is Might Statue and Ministry Visitor's Entrance? Will they be boosted in Wizarding Challenges? Will they be available in Wizarding Challenges?

    Good day @HPWUrobert

    Just one yes/no question and I really hope to get a straight answer to it:

    While increasing spawns of specified foundables, will you decrease spawns of any others?

    To be absolutely specific: I want to try and prestige a page with young Harry Potter. Will I continue seeing spawns of other foundables on Potions Classroom page, e.g.: Hedwig and Professor Snape with the same frequency?

    Thank you

    The absolute worst money grab they ever made was the dragon event. Players were threatening to leave in droves over the Trace brouhaha. Quick, Distracto!!! I'll just finish my dragon page before I leave. How many keys did YOU buy during that event?

    @HPWUrobert maybe you missed my message from yesterday? Or maybe @hpwulola can answer?
