    After installing this update, my friends list will not load. I get an empty screen with a spinning watch. I can send gifts from the other tab, but not receive them.

    Put the "Join" button back, please.

    When "internet connection" fails, please restore my level 5 runestones after being kicked out of fortress. They are hard to come by.

    I'd love to have the 'Start' button back - saves so much time....

    Loving the new portkey feature, can look all around without getting dizzy🤪. In app news letter, cool. But where oh where is the fortress start button? Please bring it back?

    We lost the start now key on the Wizarding challenges. It was great. Can we have it back please?

    I've got 6000 scrolls, 50 restricted books and 14 regular books. When will new classes be released?

    @xxxlindy I'd guess that we won't see any new lesson plans until at least the end of February. Assuming brilliant events continue as they have been, a professor who started when the game released will have enough green books to complete the first lesson plan after 4 more brilliant events, which should mean late February. I'd be surprised if nee lesson plans were released before everyone had at least the opportunity to finish the first one.

    @MtPollux - You make a good point, I suspect there is a new version being readied hopefully to include new SOS Assignments

    Hello there!

    I have completed my last SOS assignment first week of October 2019 and ever since I have been waiting to see new once... yet... so far, nothing...

    Hopefully, now that it's a new year we will see more SOS assignments.


    New mystery items for us to find would we great too!


    P.S. just wanted to add my Thank You to the Company for making a great fun game that keeps us all entertain for months! Thanks and keep up a good work!

    Good point @Sheganer. I would like to request more achievements. I know they go to a gold level but what if they made a platinum level one? And what about adding a send gift and open gift achievement?

    Also the other note I had an idea about a global competition starting on the first of the month and ranking the best wizards in the world 1-20 who score the most points and include challenge XP in the mix too. The first three people would receive gifts from Niantic. Be it gold r red books or who knows. Just a thought.

    @xxxlindy Hi there!

    I can relate...I have piles of scrolls myself yet can not use them since it takes a lot of work to get new books...would be really cool if they would add new SOS task assignments and as a rewards for completing such give us books!

    Dear @ClairabusGryff ,

    How is it going!

    As I promised before, I am trying my best to share with you runestones, hope they help, 🙂.

    I absolutely agree with you, you got a wonderful idea! Competition among fellow wizards could be very exciting!

    P.S. Happy New Year!

    Who is up to the challenge to see whose house win each month?

    Wizards , let's ask Niantic organized house competition for us?

    Happy New Year to you too @Sheganer !!

    Yes, all runestones do help so very much! I am so appreciative!

    As for the last SOS Task I haven’t been able to complete it as I play solo! 😢

    So I am hoping they will drop that one or make a work around for it. But I would like to see more after that one for sure. 👌

    Usually I play solo myself, so I see your dilemma...

    I do not wish to brake your privacy... yet, maybe if you post here a nutritional safe area where you could meet other wizards during , say next community day, you would be able to meet 3 more players and compete the last task...

    Post could look something like this:

    "Hello fellow wizards! On the next community day let's meet at ( name the safe place) and do some SOS tasks together!"


    I live in Northwest Indiana...if anyone live close by and need help with SOS tasks or just want to do tower challenges together... let's meet next community day!

    @Sheganer you can check for other players in your area here:

    There is a pin on the map near Gary for a NWI group. Hopefully that's close enough that you can connect with them.

    @MtPollux ,


    Thank you for your kind advice... 🙂

    I will look into that even though Gary is not near me...

    Still, thank you!

    @Sheganer you're welcome and good luck! At the link I gave you above, you could also make your own post to put a pin on the map near you. That way others in your area might be able to find you.
