    Thank you @hpwulola

    Will this mean that L4 to L14 wont have any specific foundables during the Spotlight hour and only the Baruffio effects and time etc is boosted?

    The features of the Baruffio's Spotlight event will only apply on the players Lvl 4-14?

    Players with higher levels won't have 3x XP with Baruffio and shortened brewing time?

    Also, the Occamy Fragments from the Dark chambers is the usual Occamy that can drop now from Fortress when using Magizoology runestone, or is it Occamy Eggs foundable (the one from the map, with juggling troll)?

    One of the tasks is to return 3 Dragon egg foundables from Portmanteaus. AdventureSync is still broken and many people can't be walking around, due to restrictions. Get ready for the massive outrage from people that will not be able to complete the event, since they can't break pandemic restrictions, just to complete the event.

    I'm genuinely confused about the outrage regarding adventure sync. I'm an Android user and it's not broken for me. Even if it was, it is a feature that was introduced well after the game was launched. When I first started playing, you got credit for distance only while the game was active. That still works.

    There is a Google Game Booster app that can help with this issue. It is installed with Android OS. After launching HPWU, swipe up then tap the icon in the lower left corner. It will lock and dim your screen, but leave the game operating as though it were in the foreground. Now you can walk around with your phone in your pocket and all the steps will count.

    No, not as complete as Adventure Sync, but it actually worked quite well for me before the feature was introduced and I still use it today.

    So, yes, it's a pain and AS should be fixed, but you can still open Portkeys the old fashioned way.

    So, what am I missing? Why are people saying they can't open portkeys because of AS not working?

    (Posting / signing in is working again? Woo!)

    So I'd like to get something clarified here:

    We've got dragon egg portkeys, so we can place the eggs, but nothing to get the dragons themelves, so we can't actually prestige the pages, and can't actually advance?


    Still, it's something.

    @HPWUblue The image you added was at the top of their post, already.

    Also, if you see my image post in the queue, still, please delete it; as it was probably posted right after theirs and still sitting in limbo.

    @HPWUTeam please spawn Granian hair on the map. It is the fastest to brew so I use it a lot in fighting the 2nd guards. It is rare lately, including in the portkeys.

    Thank you very much for the reduced brew time. I am having difficulty restocking my potions, but the reduced brew time will make it worth it to rent a cauldron.

    Chiming in as another Android user with broken Adventure sync. And yes, we all know we can walk portkeys with the app open. I'm lucky to not be in lockdown (many people still are); but live in an urban area where phones get stolen out of people's hands every single day. If you are going to do an event with rare egg fragments in portkeys it should be equally accessible to all players.

    Why is there a Dark Chamber requirement????? I'll be playing with the kiddos and they are nowhere near Dark abilities yet.

    I am SO! MAD!!! Adventure Sync is still broken for me, so I can't complete all the tasks.

    Although, weirdly, during the day while I sit and work and don't move, my wizard walks around and sometimes I get my 0.25km for the Daily Tasks. But yesterday, I drove over 25 miles with the app open on the passenger seat; this ALWAYS registers some distance, and I got NOTHING.

    In the newsletter it says my dragon event in New Zealand is starting on the 3rd which is correct BUT says it is ending on the 5th when it should be the 6th. Please confirm the 6th is the correct date.

    @Hannager: Yeah, same here, I find adversary fights pretty boring. I'll likely do the 3 required for the first round of tasks and ignore them for the rest.

    @TxTohru: What Dark Chamber requirement?

    Another android player with adventure sync not working. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE change the portkey task!!

    While I am saddened to not be able to fully collect dragon eggs the way other witches and wizards will, making opening portkeys a requirement to complete the event tasks will mean fewer android players able to complete the event.

    We should not be punished for our choice of phone or our inability to venture outside given the present circumstances

    Sounds good! I’ve collected 118 Silver Keys waiting for an event with dragon eggs.
