    Anybody knows if "wizarding challenges" now include adversaries, or just fortresses? There are two "use potions in challenges tasks", not clear if usage in adversary battles counts.

    I think adversary is count as a kind of fortress challenge because they reward is challenge XP isnt it?

    But better wait for official response or confirm it on event.

    *Professor only* One can use a potion in a challenge without losing it on the fortress challenge.

    Getting in a ruin-chamber 1 to 4 ALONE, playing with detoriation hex, so playing without the use of energy, and activating a potion works.

    When the challenge is over and one is back to the map, the potion is active and can be used on a adversary or confoundable.

    So no problems of spoiling a potion on a chamber.

    @Bellefleurtjah I don't use potions on guards, only on the archfoe, so this trick won't work - I'll end up wasting the potion on the guards anyways.

    @cosk62 considering that the achievement for elties counts only fort elites (not arch-foe in advers.) i think probs they mean only in forts/KB as well for that task, but idk for 100%

    Will there be any potion brewing reduction time? Especially since iOS users still can’t purchase the bonus cauldron?

    @cosk62 I don't use potions on guards either, but I rather spend them on map items than on chambers.

    Plus, with prolonged strong extimulo there are three strikes for the last adversary. Just two 'wasted' instead of all.

    And luckily there is also the normal extimulo, I mostly use that one for tasks.

    Had a weird error happen in the Knight Bus while trying to use a Brilliant Runestone - it just went black and when I force stopped, and once the game reloaded it came up with an error saying "Unable to connect to server. Please try again later." and no traces or APIs came up. Took several more force restarts and a phone restart to get the game back up and running again but is fine now. Anyone else have this happen?

    @Kodokmag confirmed exstimulos used in adversary encounters did not count as use x exstimulos in wizarding challenges.

    Man I miss playing this game! I’ve been a victim to the “iOS purchase failure” since thanksgiving! Unlocking portkeys with only 1 key takes a very long time. As does brewing potions with only 1 cauldron and 0 coins. I had been a potion brewing machine and had built up a nice stock of potent extimulos but I have just about gone through them. I miss free store packs! And I have yet to consume a dark mark of my own :( although I have come across 2 adversaries in the wild since they launched.
