    Three boosted foundables, none blocking my page progress. 20 Hagrid/Maxime, if I’m unlucky I end the event with fewer on my star than I started with; if I’m lucky I gain 5. (Blocked needing 3x Harry/Parvati.) 15 Young Remus, same, best I can do is gain 3. (Blocked needing 2 Young James.) 10 Dumbledore, I’ll place the sticker and collect it a few times, I’ll progress between 2 and 5 steps. (I’ve never even seen the rarest thing on the page.)

    I can’t say a few Dumbledore is nothing, but the likelihood that I will lose progress on 2 of the 3 featured foundables is irksome.

    (Hedwig is already shiny waiting for the new books, and I've got room for 30 Young Ginny before I have to decide whether to collect.)

    Family XP shouldn't be difficult with all the boosts in the same family plus a ton of runestones in the rewards.

    I need everything on this page

    Especially Hermione…

    @sakiyuishiro wow so much to catch. My Hedwig had starred and maxed again, that page blocked by young Harry Potter which is still zero . Guess will just have fun then.

    @Kodokmag I feel and struggle with you: just missing Ron and Harry on the respective pages.

    @Kodokmag At bronze page, prestiging 5 x Dumbledore will return 200 fxp purely as a bonus. Seeing as one of the challenges is to return 10 x Dumbledores, returning 20 (over 3 days) in order to achieve 800 fxp seems achievable to me. I advise brewing TTD.

    @Dewin99 thanks, still preparing TTD ingredients. Have some TTD left over from last CD.

    This one is not going to gain me much, I'm afraid.

    Hedwig is already starred.

    The chess chamber page is on base. I have Hermione to place but I need two more flying keys to prestige. If I don't get them, getting Dumbledore will be useless.

    The Great Hall page is on base. I need 2 more Yule Ball Program foundables to prestige it and have any advantage of returning Hagrid/Madam Maxime.

    Hogwarts Grounds is on bronze. I need 8 more Lupin but also more Peter, James, Sirius and unfinished maps to prestige.

    I'm doing a lot of challenges with LoH runestones to try and get those flying keys and Yule Ball Programs but I keep getting the potions book (already starred) , Dumbledore's army signup sheet (useless for this event although it still needs to star) and the unfinished map (needs to star, useful for the event but not chance I'll be prestiging that page anyway). And now I see I will need to use 10 LoH runestones during the event as well. I better not use those before the event then, or else I'll first need to return a lot of other foundables before being able to complete that task.

    I'm wondering whether I should still take the effort.

    Use the runestones now to try to prestige the pages in advance @Zuzanna93. You'll pick up plenty of extra runestones during the event.

    Ah, I missed that part. Thank @MtPollux!

    I hope I'll be able to get the fragments I need. So far today, I've done some challenges but didn't get the fragments I need.

    Well, and if it doesn't work out, it's still just a game.

    @Kodokmag I recommend saving up your Trace Charms for Dumbledores on the weekend.

    @Dewin99 Guarantees more emergencies, but not necessarily Dumbledore. I cast mine on Quidditch Harry earlier and got 3 Fluffies.

    This is my least filled/prestiged family, so it should be a good weekend as the rest of the family usually shows up (looking for you Krum+Hermy-own-ninny, regular Hermione and Young Sirius Black).

    Start prepping now, and reap the benefits later.

    I cannot for the life of me get the last flying key I need to prestige that page. I've been playing LoH rhinestones for days and nothing. I'm afraid a lot of Dumbledores will be wasted.

    @Klc5048 keep at it! If nothing else, getting the rest of the pictures up can set you up for the LOH family XP task (... here's hoping you haven't placed those images yet 😬)

    Ready for this one, but also curious about the August events. @hpwulola any sneak peaks on those? I want to start prepping my other pages for the required family XP :-)

  • Zuzanna93Zuzanna93 Posts: 65 ✭✭
    #2123 July, 2020, 08:45 am.

    I've got the last two flying keys! Now I'm hoping for two more yule ball invitations but as with @Klc5048: nothing for days...

    I'm waiting for the event to start to place foundables so it helps me with the family xp needed.

    But of course I'm getting loads of flying keys now that are all waisted :( I'll stop the challenges with LoH runestones for now, hopefully I can get those yule ball invitations magically flying to me during the event. Lot's of challenges on the first day, I think ;)

    @hpwulola thanks so much for I trous I g the new updates before this weekend!!! 4 of my 6 pages are already good so where I would not have cared much to play, now I can look forward to placing images on gold pages to get more Ministry books!

    And I have to agree with @Kodokmag Ron seems to be always the one blocking that page!

    Just invested a lot of Field Guides and Ministry Manuals to upgrade my LoH mastery before the event. Hopefully it is a successful weekend!

    @EowynRio Also happened to me just as I entered a chamber. My understanding is it’s a server issue and they are working on it.

    @EowynRio Wu Robert is working today and will hopefully resolve this glitch soon. Many have reported in multiple threads.
