Greetings, witches and wizards! Quailfoot here, reporting from King’s Cross Station!
But seriously, folks, let me tell you about my experience with January’s Community Day.
I played this Community Day in two* three main sessions.
*When I started writing this, I hadn’t gotten to stage 3 yet. Keep reading, I’ll tell you all about it.
First up, the easy tasks. I frequently play Harry Potter: Wizards Unite from the saddle of a stationary bike first thing in the morning. This is when I knock out the majority of my Daily Assignments. The morning of the twenty-third was much the same, with the added tasks of defeating 20 Foes in Wizarding Challenges and using seven Exstimulo Potions. I also spent this session taking potshots at any Wonders of the Wizarding World Traces that happened to show up.
In my second session, all of the other tasks were taken care of by using two each of Baruffio’s Brain Elixir and Tonic for Trace Detection. At this point, I might as well have been in Umbridge’s DADA class; I could practically hear Imelda Staunton giving the order “Wands away,” and I figured that was that. Another Community Day under my belt. Time to write up the review, right?
Wrong! Through a fortuitous set of unforeseen circumstances, I did not actually finish writing this review in one sitting.† I say fortuitous because when I got on the bike to spin my way through the Daily Assignments on the morning of the twenty-fourth, I realized that the Community Day clock was still ticking! You know what that means? That’s right, Event Goals Tiers 2 and 3!
†See? I told you I’d explain.
For those of you who may not have read my recent Triwizarding Secrets Part I Brilliant Event Log, I organize Event Goals into three Tiers of Priority, as follows:
- The Task List. Rewards of in-game currencies are paramount.
- The Registry Page. In this case, getting the gold frame.
- The Portkeys. Not just for the scenery this time, for me the Event-only Portkeys were an essential part of Tier 2.
I knew what I had to do. With Tier 1 in the bag, I took the Knight Bus to Ruins Chamber II to grind a few Fragments of the Hogwarts Express Engine, leaving only Tier 3 to conquer. I checked the King’s Cross Station page of my Registry so I’d know exactly how many Portkeys I needed, then used some Silver Keys to free up the requisite Portkey Vault space on my morning walk, and BAM! Tier 3 (essentially) complete!
Granted I still don’t have my gold frame, as I have not opened the new Portkeys yet, but I will!
Since Community Day went into overtime, allowing me a few penalty kicks to win the gold frame, I think you can guess what score I’m giving this Event, right? You got it; five stars! Five gold stars, to go with my shiny gold frame.
How was your Community Day? Did you get any Tier 2 or 3 goals in with the extra time? Also, is there a more Potter-y rating system I should be using, like lightning bolts instead of gold stars? Let us know!
