3km Brilliant Portkey Lacks Wrackspurts

I have entered 4 different 3km brilliant portkeys and the train car contains no wrackspurts. Game is up to date. I just reported it in-game. Any others having this problem?

    I unlocked a couple of extra brilliant portkeys after I've finished the Harry Brilliant Event (with it still going on) and got a decent amount of event credit (purple exclamation icons) when clicking on the wrackspurts. But they never seemed to actually make it to the registry page - it remained stuck at 69 rather than taking me up to 99. I can continue to get brilliant foundables an increase it, but I was hoping I could be done with those for this event and still get my last 5 scrolls I was due.

    I unlocked a couple of portkeys today from the current brilliant event and I looked everywhere for the wrackspurts, but there is not a single one in that train car! Anybody else experiencing the same glitch or am I missing something?

    I guess there's a bright side to me not being able to get out there for this event. I don't have to witness the bug. hehehe

    @HPWULola - Can we merge all these duplicate threads on this issue?

    I have the same issue. I've opened two different ones, gone into the train, and there were no wrackspurts to be found.

    Yep, as @SiriusMagic11 said, they pass by the window outside - but they are fiddly to catch, especially when the AR thinks you've moved from the spot & you haven't. I've done two now and they've taken several times longer to complete than the usual ones because of having to wait for a wrackspurt that you can catch!

    It helps to, when you look outside of the window, to tilt your phone in landscape mode, like that you have a wider view of the wrackspurts passing by. If they give too much trouble, you just have to tap 1 of those and rhen tou can exit the portkey. The game will reward you for the full 5 wrackspurts but you won’t know exactly what tou have gotten.

    Same! I try to access the portkey after unlocking the portmanteau, but there are no wrackspurts for the train portkeys!! :(

    @Treejaguar Read the previous comments. The Wrackspurts are there, just not IN the train... but outside in the landscape.

    You have to look out the window and catch them as they go by while the train is moving

    They're all outside the window in the train, they pass by so it's hard to see and difficult to tap, it's annoying. Hope I helped

    The worst tilt phone for better viewing. Used over 20 minutes of double potion and much later phone warning of battery low got up to 4 items. Too glitchy. I may not be the best tapper. But older and quicker reflexes I do tap each one repeatedly before it leaves the screen. Most all do not respond. Dump these 3km train not good for all phones and now dumping them all such a waste. Sorry but when it turns into a waste I start looking for a better outlet for my time. Disappointed

    You have to look at the window of the train car to catch them

    They are outside the train window. You have to look out the window and wait for them to fly by. They go fast, but once you get the hang of it it is pretty easy. Hope this helps.

    They are outside the car. You have to catch them as they float by.

    They are outside the train window. As the scenery goes by they appear.

    They are outside the window. Just face the window - more to the left side so you can follow it ad it moves from left to right - and keep clicking on the middle of the window. You'll see turn shot past. It takes some practice, but you'll get it.

    I only found 3 3km portkeys during the whole event. While I loved trying to hit the lights out the window, it was annoying but fun. I'm more upset that event is ending and I can't find my last portkey to unlock and my daughter needs three more. This is the second event that we have not been able to find these to complete event. Not happy at all with availability of portkeys in event.
