    This looks like another event to gain more Ministry Manuals. I love it except for the fact that I am running very low on Snowdrops and ginger roots for Exstimulo Potions and Wit-Sharpening Potions. May we have more on the map, please? I have been hitching rides just to pick up Spell Energy and ingredients from the map. I don't have anyone who wants to take me to a greenhouse, and then take me back to harvest the ingredients. I have been trying to prepare for the next Adversaries Event. Dragons are very difficult because they are so fast that I need to strike harder with each opportunity. The Edible Dark Mark that I used yesterday produced 3 dragons which were so much fun to defeat. Thank you very much for making this game more enjoyable.

    The event is live in Germany, but I just got a DA Sign Up Sheet instead of Snape's Potion Manual in Tower V. At least the TTD worked properly...

    I've been missed off the party invite list... has the birthday party been cancelled?

    I call **** on the "guaranteed fragments"... I've done 6 Dark V chambers since midnight and only gotten 3 house cups. That seems worse than the standard Dark V drop rate to me.

    It's not coming up for me. There is no special assignment at all.

    No special event showing up for me in the US either. So tired of the SNAFUS with this game.😡

    Just completed 2 Forest V challenges witout a guaranteed fragment. Thank you HPWU for not keeping your promises. 😭

    Issue has been reported as a bug...

    @VoiceMaster thanks, that clears things up!

    Really nice event, thank you!

    All chamber rewards are extra, plus sometimes two presents.

    I don’t even have the event on my app.

    @hpwulola It might help if the event was branded as a Spotlight event since thats really what it is - the boosted traces only appear using the TTD. I was able to star both Snape and the Pensieve on gold with just two TTDs so I'll call it a successful event! Haven't tried the fortresses though.

    I don't have this event either!

    @VoiceMaster Lola's announcement (the first post in this thread) mentions the TFTD:

    "Tonic for Trace Detection will reveal more of Severus Snape, Pensieve, and Young Neville Longbottom (Snape Boggart Confoundable) Foundables."

    For everyone questioning the guaranteed fortress fragments: as always, the bonus only applies if the lobby is started by someone in a time zone where the event is active. Unfortunately, there is no way to tell if the bonus is active when you join a lobby.

    For the next challenge/spotlight event, reduced brewing time would be great. Especially for us iOS users that can’t purchase cauldrons due to the unresolved bug (which has no ETA on a fix).

    @MiniLauri there are no tasks, just boosted foundables

    I've attempted multiple times to access the event. No luck! 😭 I'm saddened as I was looking forward to this event. I've cleared my cache, checked for updates, and opened it multiple times. How do I get to participate in this event?? (It's currently 12:44 pm CST.)

    Also Tonic for Trace Detection is also 50% reduced brewing time.

    Suggested tip rent cauldron brew 2 TTD save to claim for task 1 BE on Tuesday

    😉 thanks @MtPollux and @Toytracker for the heads up had to share here too.
