    @HPWUblue could you move this to knight bus?

    I plan to post several tutorial links for group fortressing.

    hope other Veteran SOS group players will continue to add good tips, infographics and tutorials

    Which leads me into can we get new SOS assignments to teach group fortress? I will elaborate more in a different thread.

    if you want to be in a group in the Hogwart's fortress please read this

    I will also post link for each profession.

    The over is good and you should read up on all 3 professions at you need to understand how group strategic spell work

    ie if there are not a lot of elite foes bravery is not needed save focus for heals

    and professors proficiency spell boost the entire teams power to there prefered foes! It take 7 focus professors start with 4 and will need 3 focus from an Auror.

    @Owlx thanks for sharing the graphic, however is there an updated version of it? I’m not sure about everything on there, but the focus required for strategic spells is currently incorrect for certain charms/hexes.

    I can’t say for sure on all professions, but for Magizoologists, the Stamina charm costs 2 focus and the Revive charm costs 1 focus.

    @Imaginatio Great catch!!!!! Thank you. Good information on Magi. I will look and post updated information

    Professors focus is correct. Auror seems correct but I don't play Auror much.

    Stamina Charm Please note it takes less focus to cast big heal or revive

    @Lucoire fantastic suggestion! Are you volunteering to do one of or both of them? 😉🤭

  • LucoireLucoire Posts: 1,235 ✭✭✭✭✭
    #1724 April, 2020, 04:46 pm.

    @Owlx Maybe. I've already written something for the "without"-situation but it's still a little unrefined, so it still needs work

    @Owlx great thread, thank you! I did see one error not corrected yet, regarding the confusion hex:


    Confusion Hex use on 5 and 4 star pixies and erklings then they can't dodge!!! Then use on 5 and 4 star spiders and wolves it weakens their defense breech


    Confusion hex doesn't do anything to spiders. It should be used on DARK WIZARDS and werewolves to weaken defense breach.

    To add to @Dogoutlaw:

    If you want to cast something on Acromantulas, use "Weakening Hex" (as Auror) or "Deterioration Hex" (as Professor)

    #2124 April, 2020, 05:28 pm.

    @Dogoutlaw and @Lucoire Thank you!!!!

    Auror is quite confusing to me so many priorities and I've not played that profession much! I can only imagine how confounding it can be to players new to team play.

    Thanks @Owlx for directing me here and to those that provided insight! I've just had a real headslap moment! Playing solo as professor primarily in Fortress chambers, I've found my profiency charm too expensive when I might see only 1 or 2 foes to realize the affect. So, my first focus was to protect everybody rather than enhancing everyone at once! Serious rookie mistake. Hopefully the other Prof in there picked up the slack.

  • OwlxOwlx Posts: 983 ✭✭✭✭✭
    #2324 April, 2020, 07:39 pm.

    @Dextraone both strategies are valid! Which is better depends on a few factors that we are blind to right now at Hogwarts.

    mid chambers proficiency bigger bang makes everyone more powerful -Yes it's too expensive for solo work. Critical for groups

    dark chambers shields up! No magi shields 1st

    each seasoned team group has slightly different preferences.

    You'll get it!

    As magi solo player, i still dont understand the bravery skill behave. Is it one cast for entire team or one cast just one player each time.

    The explanation in skill tree and expertise is different.

  • LucoireLucoire Posts: 1,235 ✭✭✭✭✭
    #2925 April, 2020, 05:43 pm.

    @Kodokmag 1 cast -> entire team empowered.

    The same is true for the Proficiency Buff of the Professor.

    I still can't find formidable pixies in the fortresses and when I do with a group of of other players then I'm beaten to them every time.

    I've been stuck on it for months. Really bad to make it so specific. It's not like pokemon go where everyone fights the same thing. I've jumped in and fought nothing. Beaten to a oddity everytime. Bad design. Needs fixing so everyone gets to fight the same things.

    @cchjkokmhtr

    Hello welcome to the forum. Help will always be given at Hogwarts to those who ask.

    Formidable pixies are 2 star pixies in any chamber. Everyone goes for pixies 1st because they are easy keals.

    My recommendation is get on the knight bus, battle in chambers Ruin 3 to Tower 3.

    Use old event runestones if you have them. Pixie hunting can take lots of battles. If you don't have old event runestones used your #1 stones. Family of the runestones doesn't matter.

    You'll want to solo. So that all the pixies are yours. To solo enter a chamber without anyone in it, press start button immediately

    Happy Pixie hunting
