  • Increased sightings of Young Hermione Granger, Young Ron Weasley and Albus Dumbledore from the Chess Chamber Registry page.
  • Tonic for Trace Detection will reveal more Community Day Traces, only takes 1 hour to brew, and its Master Notes will reduce brew time by 50%. All Exstimulo Potion Master Notes will reduce brew time by 50%.
  • A special 1km Portmanteau that rewards Legends of Hogwarts Family XP and a Flying Key fragment.
  • Increased chance in Wizarding Challenges of receiving Wizard Chess Queen, Dumbledore’s Army Sign-Up Sheet or Half-Blood Prince's Advanced Potion Making fragment with Legends of Hogwarts runestones

    I love that you have also included all Exstimulo Potions brew times to be reduced by 50 percent with the use of master notes. What time will this start? In the past, the promise of reduced brew times does not start until much later in the day. Since I have a tendency to use a lot of Exstimulo Potions (all strengths) during Community Days and Wizarding Weekends, this would be the perfect time to rent a cauldron and fill up my stock.

    I just used masters notes on Tonic for Trace Detection potion and it only reduced brewing time by half; to just around 2.5 hours because I have other brew time reductions. It was about 2:05am local time. Why did it not reduced it to under an hour? I checked my recipe section and it shows the reduced time is supposed to be in effect.

    I can’t find portmanteaus (only 1 found, have 9 empty slots) or ingredients for brewing TTD and extimulos. Is there a problem? @HPWUTeam @hpwulola

    Otherwise I’m having a great time finding lots of (for me) rare foundables! Thank you! 🌺 @HPWUTeam

    Just completed this November community day event. Much, much better than last previous few. Better spawn rates and more of what you need in tft potions spawns. Thanks guys.

    Hooe all you witches and wizards enjoyed this event as I have :)

    My TTD aren't showing reduced brew times. I paid to finish brewing 2x but I still show over 2 hours after Notes are put in. It is correct in the portions screen though ...

    Cannot buy energy!!!!!!!

    I’m unable to collect my complimentary gift and buy energy from Diagon Alley. I want my gift! I already finished community day. How am I supposed to play without energy??

    Tonic for trace was taking 2.5 hrs to brew with master notes. With 20 plus runestones no chess queen and very few other fragments. Two fragements I did get were marauders maps which I thought were not supposed to drop.

    Almost 2 hours I'm stuck with 3 queen chess remaining to prestige to gold. More than 25 runestones used and not a single one came. What's going on? From ruins 3 to dark 1, no chess queen! This is so frustrating, what are the odds of such bad luck?

    This is a much better community day event. Dare I say fun even? The ability to work on a whole page is great, the drops from the fortress help, and energy as rewards take a lot of the fortress **** sting out of it. Would have increased energy spawn just a bit, and maybe tweak the runestone rewards from event spawns, but all in all a great event. Thank you!

    Just an update on my former comment. Just did a forest 4 and my reward was not the chess queen like it should have been...

    Great job HPWU team. One of the best and most enjoyable CDs ever. Keep up the good work.

    Stuck on silver LoH page to prestige, because despite 20+runestones, I have not received a single queen chess piece.

    I completed CD but received a connection error and did not pick up the completed rewards. I really want the DADA books. Is it possible to get them?

    Thank you very much for a great community day 😊 I especially love the half brewing time for all Exstimulo Potions. I was able to play more because I had Exstimulo Potions. With the rented cauldron, I was able to also brew a lot of Tonics for Trace Detection. Great game!

    Finally I made it to gold with a bunch of 25 more runestones to get this 3 queen chess! I had one hour remaining in the event so I have fulfilled Hermione and Dumbledore on gold page 😊. Thank you for the event

    A significant improvement and in my opinion a good community day. There is not much hassle to complete the task, the tonic spawns relevant confoundables and this time it did not consume much time. Good job WU team.

    This event was really well chosen!

    Several of the recent events have been excessively difficult to complete and have caused a lot of unhappiness amongst players I know (I, myself, have grumbled from time to time) ... but this one seemed like it was achievable with a reasonable time investment, and without devastating one's potions inventory.

    Kudos, Niantic, for getting the balance right this time!

    So much more reasonable and although it took me quite a few hours I didn't feel like it was impossible if I didn't live in a city, which I don't and was able to play at a higher level than casual but not glued to my phone like the 2 community events in October which I bailed on the first after 2 hours and so little progress and then only did enough on the second day to prestige a page. Losing out on DADA books really sucked.

    This was an amazing event! Brought me up to level 60 and finally got enough Ron’s to prestige to gold on that page. And lots of Dumbledore to get more field guides!!!

    Thanks @hpwulola and team!
