    Thanks for allowing us a chance to finish opening any Dragon Egg Portkeys before the next part of the Brilliant Event.

    Hoping it comes after the October update!

    what is mean by "boost to Baruffio's Brain Elixir"? is it we could find BBE potion on map? is it BBE ingredients on map? is it BBE gift?

    or maybe is it all of those boosted?

    @Kodokmag It means the Wizarding XP you receive while the Baruffia's Brain Elixir is active will be boosted.

    I was wondering why so many red beams appeared earlier this afternoon. Cool.

    Yes, I went for a walk and was surprised by the many red beams. Never a dull moment in HPWU!

    I'm loving it so far. 😍 Thank you very much@HPWUTeam .

    May we have more granian hair on the map, please. Also, why did it stop being one of the portkey rewards?

    Has everyone noticed yet that Master Notes bring BBE brew time to one hour and two minutes? I don’t use many BBE anymore but I still just brewed up the ingredients I have for them, as this brew time is fantastic and I do still use these potions for XP tasks.

    PS: a few people in the Discord server figured this out… the time thing I mean.

    The “Severe” /light red beam spotlight was pretty good, no complaints here. There was a wide variety of Severe spawns, and they happened frequently enough to be interesting.

    The “Dark Arts” spotlight/green traces spotlight was pretty much a bust for me here tho. There were a handful of Percival Graves, and a couple of Swoopy spawns. Other than that, pretty much business as usual.

    I did like the brewing benefit for Baruffios tho, best brain bonus bottled boost!

    I can’t get the game to load at the moment. I think it may be because Facebook is down. Does anyone else who signs in through Facebook have this problem? I’m glad it’s not a Brilliant event or other event with tasks going on right now.

    @CeruleanGirl I use the FB login and I'm having the same login problem.

    Yes, this is an issue if you use FB login. Looks like its a DNS issue, probably due to recent 60 minutes article. Not sure how long to recover.
