Witches and Wizards,

January Community Day is all day Saturday, January 23 from 12:01 a.m.–11:59 p.m. local time. Search for Platform 9 ¾ and catch the Hogwarts Express as you visit King’s Cross Station.

Update: We have extended this event until Sunday, January 24 12:00pm local time.

This Community Day, you can look forward to the following:

  • Special Assignments focused on returning Wonders of the Wizarding World Foundables to King’s Cross Station with rewards including Potions, Spell Books, Ingredients and DADA Books.
  • Increased sightings of Giants Helm, Baby Mandrake and Foe Glass Foundables from the King’s Cross Station Registry page.
  • Guaranteed Hogwarts Express dropping from Wonders of the Wizarding World runestones.
  • 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%.
  • A special 1km Portmanteau that rewards Platform 9 ¾ Sign fragments.

Please note: To enable as many players around the world as possible to participate safely, this event has been adjusted to facilitate playing from wherever you are. Please remember to adhere to local rules and regulations, and be respectful of others and your surroundings.

-The Harry Potter: Wizards Unite Team

    For those who need more of the platform 9 3/4 sign to be able to prestige your page, focus on getting them from the fortress before CD. In past events many people have complained about not being able to open portkeys during the day and so not being able to prestige the page.

    Luckily I have lots of runes, so I was able to grind out 8 of them last night and place the 9 3/4 sign on my silver page. I'm ready for Saturday.

    Bad news is run out of exstimulo after adveseries. I hope there's saving exstimulo a this CD.

    what a useless, pointless CD, and b/c of this trashy event we got stolen a day of adversaries event......

    This event is for the inferior wizard families. Slytherin doesn't require any droppings from the Wonders of the Wizarding World, since we've prestiged and starred these Registry pages a long time ago...

    Pure blood noble wizard muahahaha (evil laugh?)

    Anyway my page have been gold too.

    Just staring at those 5 DADA books reward.

    @Kodokmag I will attend to this event, even though it's beneath me. As soon as I've received the 5 DADA books, I will again use my wand on more important matters.

    @Kodokmag if you more again 9 3/4 sign in place again, you get chance spellbook if you have treasure trunk WOWW. It's good idea for restock charm too.

    @Yohanes12 👍. Will do that.

    This is from one tonic for trace detection an hour after the start in Australia. @hpwulola I think someone forgot to turn on Tonic for trace detection for this event.

    keep throwing tonic for trace detection, a diluge of trace charms, and SIX detectors [I'm currently staying in the middle of 2 inns + 1 greenhouse] and I get LITERALLY EVERYTHING but Wonders of the Wizarding World Foundables - and if by chance 1 in a million shows up it's obviously NOT in the special assignment list.

    Get your act together Niantic!!!

    I'm also getting zero WOWW traces despite using TTD potions. Has to be a technical error.

    Australia here, almost 5am, no Hogwarts Express from DarkV, no King's Cross Station fragments from Tonic for Trace Detection, Tonic for Trace Detection is not 1hr brew time without Master Notes.

    Only thing switched on is the tasks, which are impossible without more frequent sightings.

    It seems that you're only getting a guaranteed Hogwarts Express in FIV and higher if you use a WOTWW runestone.

    I am not seeing any “Guaranteed Hogwarts Express” King’s Cross Station foundable dropping during Wizarding Challenges.

    I had to come to the forums here to find out we had in store today as the ingame SOS Report has been offline for 2 months now.

    I’m not spending another red cent here before the game’s crippling issues are resolved.

    Are WB/Niantic’s B or C teams now running this game? :rolleyes:

    I and many others are not seeing the "Guaranteed" fragments:

    • Guaranteed Hogwarts Express dropping from Wonders of the Wizarding World runestones.

    The event is started for me, I'm alone in the chamber so no cross-timezone issues, the Hogwarts Express fragment is the only one showing in the rewards list... but it's not awarded at the end.

    Very disappointing.

    @hpwulola :

    Guaranteed Hogwarts Express dropping from Wonders of the Wizarding World runestones.

    Yeah, right. Just spent a Runestone #4 of WotWW... no Hogwarts Express.

    @Kodokmag @Cartaphilus Where do you see 5 DADA books? Mine says the reward is 3 of them.

    'guaranteed' here means IF you get a foundable from your woww runestone, it's safe the hogwarts express and nothing else. c'mon people, is this the first cd you're playing?

  • McLightMcLight Posts: 6 ✭✭

    @MaditaOnAir it's the first CDay (at least in a while) to use this wording.


    • 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


    • Increased chance to receive Knockturn Alley Sign Fragments when using Dark Arts Runestones in Forest IV (Chamber 14) and higher


    • Increased chance to receive Sword of Gryffindor fragments when using Mysterious Artefacts Runestones in Wizarding Challenges

    good day to you all, is anyone else having trouble with the reduced brew time not working properly? I still have the common brewing time for TTD and extimulo elixirs. Never experienced it before though
