How to Prepare

The Wizarding Weekends are very good for players in general, as long as you put in a little Fortress work beforehand! Hunt down the following Fortress-exclusive Foundables to make your weekend grind even more efficient:

  • Advanced Potion Making on the Potions Classroom Registry page
  • Wizard Chess Queen and Flying key on the Chess Chamber Registry page
  • Yule Ball Invitation on the Yule Ball Great Hall Registry page

Farming these Foundables will ensure you are able to push your Registry pages to the limit! Thanks to RIC (Repeat Image Collection), players will be able to easily stack repeat Foundables so prestiging pages becomes less complicated. Each Foundable is now more valuable than before, especially with Update 2.14 on the horizon! Make sure to spend time grinding Legends of Hogwarts Foundables this week!

Wizarding Weekend Store Packs

As always, this event includes both a free store pack for all players, as well as a premium store pack. The details are shown below in the infographic provided by our friend Orange Wizard.

After looking at both bundles and calculating their value, neither of the offers really pique my interest.

Having received enough Tonic for Trace Detection ingredients to start my own Apothecary and finding Spell Energy frequently on the Map, plus receiving plentiful Spell Energy Gifts, the first gift naturally feels inherently devalued.

The same goes for the second bundle, unless you are bankrupt when it comes to Legends of Hogwarts Runestones and Potent Exstimulo Potions. Playing the event and leveling up your Family page will drop higher level Runestones the higher your Family Level is naturally, so you will likely find more Level 4 and Level 5 Runestones through simply playing than forking over the galleons simply isn’t worth it.

The value for both is pretty low for the cost of the items themselves. The reasoning for this comes from Andolov (Gjcerda). You can read his breakdown on Reddit.

I have said it before many times and I will say it again: the Foundables are better than the rewards! If you disagree, sound off in the comments below.

Happening on the same weekend as Go Fest in Pokemon Go. How stupid is that timing! Have to choose 1 or the other, can’t do both.
