    I like the event tasks I’ve seen that relate to the subjects. I wonder if there’s ever a N.E.W.T event, what could we get for things like Muggle Studies and Astronomy classes?

    Date and time is announced as "From May 29 at 12 a.m. PT – May 30 at 11:59 a.m. PT". It's in Pacific time. But in this infographic it's in local time. Which one is correct @hpwulola ?

    @k1platinum Thanks for catching that typo! It is 48 hours long, and will last all Saturday and Sunday local time.

    This is 7:00 a.m. JST. It's not 12 a.m. in both local time and PT. (It's 2 p.m. PT)

    @k1platinum There is an error with that countdown clock and it will be corrected today.

    Perhaps the stress of the O.W.L. exams caused this mix up 😅

    @AllycatCoven if you nearby greenhouse, you're lucky to finish task. But if no one greenhouse in your map, too bad for new normal task too.

    @WitchHiker looks like is a dark chamber I-V if you want.

    Yet another event stuffed into May? I don't think this was on the original calendar either. 10 GREAT alohomora charms and a greenhouse task. Once again all of us with dexterity and neurological issues have been ignored, along with those in lockdown.

    Bad news everyone, looks like TTD effect is back to normal (trace reveal one minute to three minute), next update is portkey will be normal like a PoGo.

    @Yohanes12 I came here to say the same thing. I counted 22 off mine, and I have +12 from the SOS lessons so only 10 base spawns. I don't understand why they wouldn't tell us. And they're still posting that the event has been adjusted to play from home - TTD spawns was one of the adjustments for that. Also didn't get a single Alohomora trace from 2 Tonics.

    @HPWUblue @hpwulola Can you confirm if the change in the number of TTD spawns was intentional?

    The nearest greenhouse is 12 miles from here. Am I supposed to go into town in the middle of the night for the perverse pleasure of the devs? Guess this is another event I'll pass on. Between the stupid adversaries events and this, this game is no longer worth the time and money.

    @KitCaitsidhe That is a long way to go for a Greenhouse, but why would you need to go in the middle of the night? The event lasts 48 hours.

    I see my local folks aren't the only ones who got nothing helpful off the Tonic for Trace Detection. @hpwulola are we sure that "this event has been adjusted to facilitate playing from wherever you are"?

    I think they yet again forgot people who are yet again in lockdown and TTD is just not spawning and boosted fragments.

    So here I get 3 portraits and 1 McGonagall with my first tonic (trace charme on McGonagall, this task is done). So it's not super boosted but it shall be ok to finish the event. Alohomora and magical creatures foundables are not boosted according to the announcement, but normal spawn rate should be sufficient to accomplish these tasks. Good luck to all of you!

    @ctanwriter For some stupid reason, Alohomora traces and CoMC traces aren't boosted on Tonics. Only the Portraits and McGonagall are mentioned as boosted. And they seem to think the pandemic is over everywhere now the US are relaxing more restrictions.

    Lola does a good job of interacting with players and passing on comments (though we rarely get any feedback from the dev team) but, as she does that on top of her regular job, I really wish they'd hire a community manager who can dedicate the time to actually listen and engage with the community.

    I think this event forced us to think strategically, instead of served everything on silver platter we have to utilized what we have (aka trace charm) to complete some of the tasks.

    I accidentally tapped through the opening text box for the event. Can anyone give me an idea of what it said, please?
