    Was really looking forward to this event. Grateful for EDM in gift package. When used I got 1.Hungarian Horntail, 2. Gilderoy Lockhart, 3. Fenrir Greyback. Not what I was hoping for as the event focusses on the Norwegian Ridgeback.

    Did you forget to turn up the adversaries? It’s been over 1 1/2 hours and I haven’t seen any adversaries or baby dragons. My second EDM only gave me one Norwegian Ridgeback. It would be nice if the EDM gave you the event adversaries. I’ll try tonics for the baby dragon but thought there would be at least one dark mark by now.

    What has collecting baby Norwegian ridgebacks to do with adversaries, I know it's the theme but how to find them? Giving 1 EDM and requiring 2 to be spent for the event, such generousity. EDM are so expensive for just 3 adversaries, I can do one in under 5 minutes and end up just sitting around for the next to appear. often to they are just a waste not dropping things required for the event. Dark detectors on inns also never drop event stuff in community days. No unicorn drops to top level potions, event after event never a chance to recover, straight into the next one. I just don't know why I should be bothered any more. It's not like the rewards are anything good anyway.

    I lost 2 adversaries after defeating the first 2 agents and spending my potions for the real adversary.

    Do you have any plans to fix this situation?

    EDMs not dropping Norwegian Ridgebacks. 1st EDM: 1 Ironbelly, 1 Pettigrew, 1 Basilisk.

    So far by my experience, the EDMs are providing one Ancient Norwegian Ridgeback adversary with each use. (I've only tried two so far, though, so not a huge sampling.) On the one hand, I can see how since there is only the one target in this event, it would be overkill for each EDM to create 3 of them, but on the other hand, one each time will be a major drain on player's EDM supplies. Something in the middle would be nice, like at least two from each EDM.

    My experience as well. Fortunately I found a few in the wild pretty quickly. This might be the easiest Adversary event yet. All I have left is baby Norwegian Ridgeback. Hoping TFTD provides what I'm looking for, then onto bonus round.

    Have had a more than 12 adversary battles so far today. 6 have been ANR's but of that only got 1 Teddy so far. I should be working on the bonus by now but who knows how many more I'll have to battle to get those particular fragments. I think those frags should be guaranteed if successful when battling ANR like the guaranteed frag in other parts of the event. Also EDM's should yield 4 in my opinion 1 at beginning then 1 every 10 min and 4th at final timer expiry considering their cost.

    Just need to use one more EDM and I'll be on to the bonus assignments - all 3 of the Adversaries from my first EDM were Norwegian Ridgebacks so guess I got lucky. Did have to do a few more chains to finish the teddy bear task though. Liberal use of trace charms on the Baby Norwegian Ridgeback got that finished quickly since it's giving credit for the double trace return from that, in case anyone isn't seeing a ton of those.

    Monster Book of Monsters from a wild encounter counts towards the task. I was lucky and returned one.

    Trace charm was clutch in getting the baby Norberts. Though took more EDMs than I would have liked to get through the main assignment, and haven't had a single one drop.

    So far I've collected everything except the teddies and the second EDM. I'm not going to buy an EDM ESPECIALLY if I can't get the teddy bears. It's pointless. How can I get these items??????????

    The game is slow and I keep leaving second and third adversaries battle for NorwegiN Ridgeback. Please fix it.

    #2315 June, 2021, 11:12 am.

    Pues es evento de dragón pero salen otras marcas aún con la marca tenebrosa combustible. No entiendo voy a la mitad del evento y solo me a salido uno. De los demás adversarios me salieron como 10 o más y de dragones nes solo uno. 🥺🥺🥺🤔🤔 Espero ayuden con esto porque no es posible acompletar otra vez el evento.😢😢🧙‍♂️🧙

    I've completed all of the other aspects of the event but I just can't catch the flippin Norwegian ridgeback dragon. Please can I have some help?

    Still, after all this time, we need a fix of some sort to prevent accidentally placing an image. I had 18 Norwegian Ridgeback fragments I was saving for after I prestige. I got the last Dragon Breeding for Pleasure and Profit I needed, placed that image and then went to prestige the page, and must have just barely brushed over the dragon image as I moved my finger up to the button to prestige. I didn't even feel any contact but apparently it registered it as a tap. I'm so disheartened to lose those 18 fragments. Now I need 27 instead of 9.

    I mentioned this several times months ago in feature requests, and even made suggestions for how it could be alleviated, but apparently no one was listening. At least this is the first time I have done it in a while, but that doesn't make the loss of all of those fragments any easier to accept. 😟

    Requiring the use of two EDMs to complete the main event while providing only one is just BM.

    I racked up 28 EDMs from drops over the initial round of adversary events (even though I rarely played enough to do the bonus task). However, at least in the past two events (and across non-event adversaries) I didn't get a single one so I'm now down to 26. I know they still drop (my wife got one just the other day), but either I experience extremely bad luck or the drop rate was lowered...

    @HalloMami - Bonus tasks for Adversaries only started recently ago when they suddenly decided that two adversary events a month was a *REALLY GREAT IDEA* without bothering to oh, I dunno.... ASK the players if it's something we'd be interested in. For me its a resounding NO. Bonus tasks on twice monthly adversary events were a horrible idea on top of a really bad one and all it really is is a resource drain. Too many potions and resources to replace those potions are being wasted, especially on Narcissa Malfoy. She dodges so many attacks that I've wasted entire potent extimulo potions on her, which I unlocked the extra cast on so that's 6 casts that she just side-steps like she's doing a square dance move. Unicorn hair does not drop on the ground here and potent extimulos are my most valuable potion. I know some people claim they get them a lot but I personally have never ever seen unicorn hair on the ground, I can only get it if I'm lucky in a portkey or as a task reward. I did have a bit of a giggle at your "down to 26" comment. After being slammed with adversary events twice a month for the past several months, coupled with bad bonus tasks and the lousy spawn rate of the adversaries I actually need when I do use an EDM I have a whopping 15 left, so maybe 26 isn't that bad and you shouldn't complain.

    @LionessMolly 😉

    I don't like the adversary feature in general (too boring and tedious), but I don't mind the events plus the bonus rounds. Like, I don't feel like I have to complete them. If you feel that they drain too many of your resources, just ignore them. You won't be worse off than if the event didn't happen, so...

    Yeah, I understand that 26 EDMs is a lot to some people. I was merely trying to point that at the rate at which I get EDMs from adversary encounters vs. how many you need to complete the base round of tasks previously was netting me bonus EDMs, but now apparently became unsustainable if you want to stay F2P. So, effectively, the task list (which unfortunately is also connected to "the story line") became kind of a ticketed event. I have enough to do the next couple of events, but others might not...

    Now, obviously, the number of EDMs depends on how many adversaries you do. So, just to give some idea about how many I did, I mentioned that I did enough to complete the main list of tasks but not always the bonus rounds...

    I haven't gotten EDM drops in months it seems. I had to buy some to do this event on time. While I do need the DADA books that are dropping regularly I don't want to spend more on EDMs. Please up the drops.

    Stop requiring wizarding challenges until they work properly!!! I keep getting network errors and I'm now in the middle of one where I got multiple network errors. I beat one foe only to have it pop back in. A bit later my screen froze like I was supposed to have a foe to fight but nothing was there. I couldn't even back out. Finally it came up as "victory" but I don't feel like it was since I couldn't really pull my weight. (And I'm locked on the "victory" page. The only way to get off of it is to close the app.)
