    Really wish trace detection would bring atleast herbs etc for potions i live somewhere that i have to go down the road to get anything on the map or use trace detection to get anything from home cuz it is in the woods so for whatever reason it doesnt give me anything from home but it would be nice to atleast have something that ups the herbs around you , just sayin

    Guaranteed fragment Half-Blood Prince’s Copy of Advanced Potion Making, how bout No? I've done at least 3 in Forest Chamber V's in the last couple of hours and the count for that fragment is still sitting exactly where it was before. Jeez!! Fun times.

    It's 6:30 pm est and I still have absolutely nothing showing up this event. Apparently Niantic forgot to send some of us an invitation to the party 😕

    Nothing in game to explain or confirm the event. I had a couple of notifications pop up on the phone when closed but still nothing in the game. Badly done.

    There is nothing posted on the SOS or in the game about this event. I was not even aware of this until an alert came over that the event was ending. Is this a flash or how things will be going from here on since the update?

    "guaranteed" fragments are not dropping consistently. Will there be any reconciliation for wasted time and resources?

    While it's true that telling something about this event in-game would be fair, just trying helps if one knows about the event. So a frequent look at the announcement is a must if one wants to play most efficiently.

    And as there are some things uncertain around the end of the event in one's timezone, these are always the same problems.

    One can get used to it and play with it. I tested the guaranteed fragments with a runestone I have plenty of, so I found out how this event is working.

    Alas, it's a trial and error and one misses some events before finding out.

    We could put a land-abbreviation behind our names... Then one can see if the event is active for the one who started the countdown for a chamber.

    Trace Charm used on the Pensive is not giving me a second Pensive confoundable. I only had the second Pensive 1 out of 6 times. I am still getting 2 fragments once I’ve released (or freed) the Pensive.

    anyone else having this issue?

    The event doesn’t have tasks, and the coy foundables for this event only show up whe TFTD potion is used.

    I have not had any issues with the Forest Chamber as some have mentioned, I’m using IOS.

    @RlrCoasterQueen I had the same Trace charm issue not giving a second trace on both the Pensieve and Snape. I've also had the same issue with previous Spotlight events - can you pass along to the dev team @hpwulola

    @RlrCoasterQueen @EPHedwig when you use a trace charm on a trace that appeared from a trace tonic it usually doesn't spawn a copy of the original trace.

    It’s not so much that there weren’t actual tasks on this event. It’s more that although there were some “coming soon” messages, there was no notice in SOS on event day, no instructions on how things worked, no “start now”..... nothing. So, after seeing a notification on Lock Screen, I would go to the game, check around, play normally for a bit then log off. Rinse and repeat throughout the day. Finally in late afternoon, I check here and that’s when I learn about the traces being key to things. I also see talk about forest chambers, but again, no details so no idea how that worked. Put this one down as about a complete a failure as was possible.

    The spotlight has a black bulb in it.

    Don't bother, save your potions for something worthwhile.

    @MtPollux thank you for the info! I didn’t realize there was a difference in TFTD spawns had a different reaction to the Trace Charm.

    UGH! I’ll pass this info along in a different post stream.

    Quite a lame event. Even with TFTD, spawns are still “The Usual Suspects”. Nothing marvelous.

    Even though I logged in a couple of times on Saturday I didn't notice that there is an event running (apparently not surprising, it seems). Only found out on Sunday. But ok, doesn't seem like I missed anything...

    I did find an enhanced number of adversaries on the ground during Snape's birthday.

    I'm deeply embarrassed like my fellow community, the snape event never showed for me. I think that is awful others got a chance and some did not simply get a chance.

    TfTD spawned good numbers of the Spotlight Foundables, but getting even 3 or 4 people in Fortress chambers was difficult and time-consuming, and there was no way to tell if a battle was eligible for the event.


    Guaranteed Challenge fragments from the following:

    • Sword of Gryffindor - Tower Chamber V
    • Half-Blood Prince’s Copy of Advanced Potion Making - Forest Chamber V
    • -Hogwarts House Cup - Dark Chamber V


    One really important word was missing here: "extra". Letting people know that the listed reward was *in addition to* the usual might have brought more people out to play.

    @Onemagey , it wasn't a set of tasks, it was just a spotlight event with buffs to Fortress rewards and Tonic for Trace Detection spawns. I'm so sorry that you missed out because that wasn't explained clearly.
