Is it a specific portkey that gives the horns? I have used 16 and no horns thus far!!!
same here on limited time to collect pkg. it said like 18hrs last night & now down to 6 hrs or so
I’m having the same problems trying to the horn fro port keys.. I used 8 so far (2k,5kand 10k) still not horn... hopefully I can find some in the local streets.
I got one horn from 8 portkeys. The potion is not that impressive. Replacing the brain elixir worth 100 coins with this one worth 60 and not that useful is definitely a nerf!
@CVRLuna Welcome!!! Happy to have you here :)
@AuroraKadavra Sorry about the tough week! I'm glad that this has been helping out; I'm always happy to see your input here on the community! You give great advice!!
Today was so fun, wasn't it!? I went out for lunch and decided to play there, opened the game and there were FOUR dragons nearby! The waiter brought me my burger but I was too busy battling dragons to notice 😂
@HPWULOLA I was not so lucky.. I noticed that dragon's are in rampage, just ½ hour before the end of the event. Welsh green remained just one fragment away from my scrapbook.
Any idea is those coming back..? I'm miserable about my luck, tough I should not be.. I have been always unlucky 😆😅
Hope you others had better luck and fun with dragon's. 😊
The new potion appeared to me without having to update the game to the latest version, and the only thing that brings the latest update are: General bug fixes and Android Q Compatibility.
I had more than 600Mb free and was not letting me download the 41Mb update, but I was finally able to update after leaving 800Mb free. I find it exaggerated have to have so much memory available for such a "small" download.
This was a great event. I woke up 2hours early to participate before I headed into work. I'm totally exhausted on this 12hr shift but I have no regrets. One question . Will the new Tonic create more spawns around my house?
Welcome @CVRLuna 😃
Has anyone used the Trace Tonic at night yet? If so, were there more oddities around such as vampires?
It’s coming up to the full moon soon and was wondering how to maximise my chances of getting the Werewolf tufts.
@Dewin99 So far, all the reports I have seen have said it doesn’t seem to spawn any oddities (except dragons on Dragon Day. Those were spawning). If you see oddities spawn from the potion please let me know. 😆
I'm glad a new potion was added and I'm excited to try it out. However, the ingredient pricing is off. Each Trace Tonic is worth 60 coins in Diagon Alley, but each Erumpent Horn is worth 30 coins (2 per Trace Tonic). So you can have all other ingredients, but if you don't have the Horns it's the same amount of money just to buy the potion and not have to gather other ingredients, take 7 hours to brew it, etc. Erumpent Horns should definitely be worth less.
@HPWULOLA Isn't it a mistake that Erumpent Horn cost 30 coins each? ? Might as well just buy the tonic for 60 coins without having to wait 7 hours.
Why are the erumpent horns so hard to get? I know they are only in Portkeys, but I've opened at least 15 since the new tonic came out and no erumpent horns.
@Nutmeg0521 & @annanu & @Spondee@Neo5 I have found the same with portkeys! Ive opened 12 since the tonic was launched, and the portmanteaus were picked up after the launch- yet not 1 Erumpent horn in sight!! Is it maybe a glitch @HPWULOLA ? I'm getting the dragon claw & unicorn hair like usual, but absolutely no sign of the new horn?
@Overflow4487 &@Dewin99 & @Neo5 I used the tonic last night as was chilling watching a film at dusk, thought try it out with not leaving house & see how it worked. It did bring about 20 or so confoundables, which is way more than would have come without it. 3 of them were oddities- 2 erklings & a leprechaun. So im going to try it at Dawn before the full moon to try & get the doxy, then il only need the werewolves who quite often show up. So it did work well for me if that helps? Hope it does the same for you 😊
I've seen 1 erumpent horn in a portkey, I've seen a couple more as the occasional ingredient drop outside. I think it's supposed to be like hermit crab shells, we're not supposed to see them regularly in portkeys, but that's primarily where we'll see them when we do.
It would be nice to see more of them, and it wouldn't matter as much that they were rare if it was the same price as a hermit crab shell (I believe 6 coins).
@AuroraKadavra I love the idea of using these for Doxies! I'm not a morning person and barely got enough for the challenge. I'd love to be able to collect the rest of the fragments needed to Prestige the page.
I walked for around an hour this evening (dusk/night) and managed to find one erumpent horn, three baneberry and two angel’s trumpets. Much more than what I usually get during the day, so I’m wondering if they’re time dependent. More research required methinks.
Also got my first philosophers stone so was chuffed to bits!
Hello everyone!! New on here, but glad I found it, you all provide very good information.
Regarding the dragon event, it would be nice if it had lasted longer than a few hours on one day. I saw a lot of them but couldn’t get them because I was working. So bummed out missed it.
Here’s my code if anyone wants to add me:
5092 9716 1420
@AuroraKadavra It seems to grab a spawn every 3 minutes. Glad to see oddities are coming from it. Love your idea about the doxies. I have very few spawns at my house, so I totally can see me using this for those long evenings at home so I can keep playing in a “dead zone” 😆
@Overflow4487 glad it helped. I did try it at dawn this morn - i mean yesterday morn sorry, it's now 2.40am. And once again got at least 15 of more traces showed, with 2 oddities an Erkling & leprechaun.
No doxy tho, but hearing how rare they are I suppose thats just the way it goes. I hax spare Baruffio so set that off too & i did get a few yellow beam confoundables so it was worth it 😊
I've tried the Tonic twice now and got exactly 10 Foundables each time (about a Foundable every 3 minutes). It was a fun way to be able to play from home since I rarely get Traces here, but since the price is steep I probably will use these if I have them, but won't go out of my way to buy them or buy their ingredients to brew them. It's like a Dark Detector that works from home.
I see that @WerewolfChaser has started spotting werewolves recently (werewolves thread - sorry, don’t know how to link the thread). Will try the Trace later on and report back tonight.
Hmm. It’s still coming up as a waxing gibbous moon as opposed to a full moon with me in Wales. I’ll try it anyway and see how I get on.
Just walked 1.4km in 30 minutes with Trace + Baruffio. 10 werewolves & 2 pixies along with a few portraits.
It seems to be working brilliantly. Unsure as to what the difference the Trace potion makes, but I’d strongly advise others to follow suit.
@Dewin99 excited to hear that you both found werewolves and the trace tonic helped you to do so, thanks for checking in!!
Return journey, no Trace nor Baruffio: 5 werewolves, 3 pixies and 1 vampire. It might be a bit premature but I’d say it’s definitely worth using the Trace potion for hunting werewolves. Hope this helps.
I find these to be good improvements to the game. Since the release for Trace Dection I’ve used the tonic two times and noticed it’s definitely bringing out more traces.
Also, more options to collect spell energy is always better.
Keep up the good work Niantic :-)
I have to say that I have not found any horns anywhere. Very disappointing. I saw that the horns would be found in the portkey's but I have done 16 portkeys and found none. Ended up getting rid of the other ingredients, just taking up space...
So, the new potion has been out for a bit. I live in a neighborhood with not many spawns and I don't think the two times I've used this potion have made much of a difference (the free one and the one we could brew). I'd love to test it out some more, but sadly, while I've found loads of the other ingredients, I haven't found a single erumpent horn. Ever. Not in the wild or from a portkey or anywhere. :( Boo. Sure hope the drop rate of that increases. I play a lot and in a variety of locations, so it surprises me that I haven't come across it yet in a week. Fingers crossed for Community Day in Sept to find a horn or two (or 5!).
