    @HPWUrobert will the re-placement of fragments within the pages reward 1,000 WXP during this event? Otherwise it is completely useless to continue to capture brilliant events since they don’t give field guides nor any WXP. The past few brilliant events I have maxed out the family engaging with brilliant events due to the WXP as I just leveled up this morning and need 700,000 to level to 50 so if this is a bug or not going to happen please clarify so that I know in advance to play the event to the absolute bare minimum as with the SOS release all of the rewards including daily tasks still giving out scrolls for something a large portion of us don’t need makes it useless to continue returning brilliant traces. This question was never fully answered by anyone in the HPWU team when I originally asked it and MANY players would like a verification versus not fully answering the question ...PLEASE. And thank you very much in advance.

    @RabbeinuTam thank you so much for that information and I too found similar results except I didn’t get anything from Flaurs and Fauna runestones this weekend. 😢

    Does anyone know what tasks we have to complete? Not that I do a lot of preparation but it would be nice to know if a certain amount of family xp is needed at some point.

    Also are there any normal foundables that are boosted during the event?

    Two wizards in my community reported they have the Knight bus restart loop issue happening as well. One of them successfully completed one chamber and got a fragment, one more without getting a fragment and on the third attempt (all in ruins btw) when the timer went to 0 he got kicked out and it keeps looping. I am afraid to keep fortressing as the reason behind these crashes have not been made known. At the same time doing it is necessary to complete the event. Is anything being done to address these issues?

    @plentypokes I bet it's just gonna go around until everyone experiences it😂 In all seriousness though I hope they fix it faster than last time. I was in forest 1

    Stuck in a rebootloop as well, after started a forest 1 chamber (the first 2 times went without issues)

    I boarded the knight bus and am now in the restart loop as well.

    Stuck in the restart loop as well.

    At least three of us in the same chamber got the same problem - froze/kicked/restart-loop in definitely.

    Please @HPWUrobert Warn others of touching fortresses and Knightbus, again. And please do whatever possible to let us out of the loop... I really hope this gets solved faster than last time.

    An extra 12 hours event from 8 pm to 8 am like last time in central Europe is just not fair compensation for 24 hours lost event.

    I managed to get the necessary Runestones from Brilliant Captures and then fortunately didn't get caught in fortresses getting the 2 necessary items to finish off 1/4 - I'm now on 3/4, will have to wait when I get to 4/4 for the problems to be fixed before I try to do all the fortresses required.

    BTW: CLAUDIO007, the runestones needed are earned in this case by capturing the Brilliant Items and leveling up the Brilliant Event.

    @GalifreyanLady I too had issues trying to place a few of them actually. Those the one that was the hardest, to where I almost gave up, was the one from portkeys.

    @HPWUrobert there are some issues with trying to place some of the items in the brilliant event page. The goblin was tricky but the one from portkeys was a pain. I started just tapping everywhere around it, long pressed, tapped middle of it. Tapped probably 20+ times before it finally registered.

    Whoops apologies for the double post

    I still can't get in though, stuck on the loading page and now I am getting the wireless network message. I had not even attempted to enter a fortress earlier.

    No fragments dropping in fortresses. Wasted my only hard to acquire 9 runestones. Serious lack of brilliant foundables means I guess Im done with this game. Cant get out of lvl 2 in the event.
