The Burrow appears to be at the center of the latest wave of Calamity activity, causing a flood of Foundables related to the Weasley family home. Fondly remembered as the quaint and cozy backdrop to many loving Weasley family moments, the iconic dwelling has also served as headquarters for the Order of the Phoenix during the Second Wizarding War. As memories from the Burrow, from the Flying Weasley Car to Ron’s Wizard Chess Set, have begun appearing left and right, you’ll need to get ready to roll up your sleeves and help set things right!

Please note: To enable as many players around the world as possible to participate safely, this event has been adjusted to facilitate playing from home. Please remember to adhere to local rules and regulations, and be respectful of others and your surroundings.

    An event based entirely around the Weasleys is all I've been wishing for lately. Thanks! Loving the 24 hour Community day change and I'm glad to see I really won't have to wait much longer for a full moon either. Can't wait!

    Any solution to wizarding challenges/fortress access during our mandatory stay at home period?

    I can’t even complete the daily page how am I supposed to do an event?? It takes 2 tonics just to get 10 Foundables, there is nothing to pick up, and I have zero portkeys. I have zero gifts to give so I am not receiving anything back. There are no energy bolts out here.

    @WonderingWendy Nice to meet you. Welcome to the forum.

    I'm so sorry for your screen. That is truly painful. Did you have similar experience with the marauder's event?

    I used to play mostly before and after work, and not much at home. At home my screen looked a lot like yours. When I started visiting a close neighborhood park where i could find a few traces, traces followed me home. The more i played at home the more spawned. I am also in a suburban area. So I'm not if that makes a difference.

    Hopefully by sharing your screen the developers can help.

    Be safe and stay well.

    @WonderingWendy same to me. But i could at least got an early morning walk. Thats the only time to finish it (and scavenge everything i found along the way).

    Could we rent couldron for 3 days or a week?

    So many potion to burn

    The events this month sound exciting. Looking forward to them all. It’s great that the community day has been extended as well to last the whole day and it’s Magizoology foundables for that and the mini event! This Magizoologist is very happy 😃

    @Kodokmag if you look closely you can see Pickett in the community day picture!

    A 24 hour Community Day sounds like a dream! I wasn't always able to partake fully for all 3 hours, rushing to at least get the tasks done, never mind placing an image of whichever foundable was boosted those days. With 24 hours that won't be a problem this time, love it!

    Having Pickett and the Murtlap around for the day will be terrific, my Central Park page is still on its basic frame, would love to be able to prestige it finally, fingers crossed!

    @WonderingWendy I'm a rural player also but in a hamlet/village of two streets and 1 church, so I can at least get to one point while we're still allowed walks. But in the surrounding fields there are hardly any spawns, maybe 1 or 2 for x minutes of walking/cycling, and while there are slightly more spawns along a road to the next village, that road is too dangerous to stop alongside it for spawns. So while I'm happy for @Kodokmag that they can catch enough on their walks, I know all too well it really depends on where you can take that walk. I can sometimes suffer with a bit of envy of players in cities, or with cars, for having it easier in terms of acces to points of interest and increased spawns, only sometimes though :)

    At least I am lucky enough to have some spawns here and get some SE bolts from time to time as well. As mentioned above by @Owlx , it appears to help to have the game open at your location and do whatever you can to perform actions at that address, be it saving portmanteaus to open there or using a tonic to attract spawns. I really think that helped in having more traces appear here. I have no actual proof of that, all evidence is anecdotal only, but maybe if you're not on a full lockdown yet and you can still get somewhere to pick up portmanteus and ingredients for tonics etc, maybe you'll be able to create the same effect at your address.

    I personally am hoping to get help from an Ingress of PoGo player to submit portal applications in my area once we're allowed to meet up again, but then you need something to submit, which is harder for rural players than urban ones. Maybe that is something for you to look into as well. I know it won't help you right now, but it might help you in future.

    As for the now, I'm hoping the hpwu team are working on something to help us be able to do more from home and your case is an excellent example of why that is so necessary, some of us have nothing nearby or on the way to a grocery store, which makes it hard to play under normal circumstances, let alone in the current situation.

    The only practical thing I can do for you is offer to send you gifts when available, which for me is infrequently, but better than nothing? If you let us know your friendcode I'm sure I won't be the only person willing to send you gifts without expecting any in return.

    Thank you very much to the whole HPWU team for making the events home-play compatible. I was very happy when I read the in-game announcement.

    @WonderingWendy I live in the city and right next to an inn, which I can visit from my living room. Because of this I have a steady supply of Energy presents. If you do as @FritLyreleaf said and post your friends code I can sent you gifts regularly and without expecting something in return. :)

    @Kodokmag you just need more TTD to preparing a marathon of CD just home, this brilliant event too easy for TTD.

    Thank the makers for the added energies. The March events were doable, even with keeping close to home.

    Any chance of a few more lessons, even if not the whole tree? I've got 10,904 scrolls, 253 spell books and 140 restricted section books. I'm an auror and would like to share more focus with my team, and I'd like my professor partner to get stronger so that it doesn't take 3-4 casts to take down a Fluffy

    With the first week of this month's Brilliant Event nearing its end, I have to say I'm so relieved that everything could be done from home. And the new daily tasks are great! I am finally getting all tasks completed every day! Very thankful for it all.

    Although it is getting harder at some times to keep invested in the game now there's less opportunity to share your enthusiasm with other players, forums etc just aren't the same as being able to play together, it is getting easier to keep playing thanks to the se bolts etc. I am really looking forward to the Community Day, I think it will give a much needed boost of excitement, that should really help perk things up.

    Very happy that soon after the CD the second Brilliant week and the second April event will follow. It immediately gives us something to look forward to after the CD, and, if at all possible depending on circumstances, prepare for. It's good to keep busy with something fun.
