Added you both, I'm T. W.
I'mpressed with the concept so far but I live in a fairly rural location and am already realising that lack of spell energy may spoil my gameplay.

DonkeyHohtay Fri 21-Jun-19 08:28:00

I am very excited about this game!! Loved Pokemon Go but I am bored with it now.

Have added you both as friends. My user name is MmeHooch. Feel free to add me too - 2132 3241 9583

Just downloaded but I’m saving it to go through with DD who will wet herself with excitement when she sees it!

Is it good so far?

I'm still figuring this game out, but it has the potential to be fun I think. Although I struggled to juggle it with playing Pokémon Go in the school run this morning! Can't just spin a gym as I fly past with 2 games on the go.

I have added you all as friends. Happy to be added, my code is 2230 8750 5059, name LazuliLazarus.

I've just started this with my daughter (can we play without adding friends? I'm trying to teach her internet safety!)

We're catching things big I haven't a clue about spells and all sorts....

derekthe1adyhamster Fri 21-Jun-19 10:53:40

I'm stuck with the portal. I can open one but I just have a blue semi circle at the bottom of the screen and I'm not sure what to do.....

I just did the portkey thing. You have to allow access to your camera. There should be an icon of a boot - the portkey. You then tap the book and the picture changes to another location, the app will tell you to tap on 5 items. Move your phone around and tap on the little balls of light.

I was out for a walk this morning. Still getting to grips with the game but here's what I've learned:

- Pokestops and gyms are now greenhouses, inns and fortresses. Fortresses are more like gyms in PoGo. Tap on a greenhouse and you get stuff to make potions. Tap on an inn and you get spell energy. Each recharge in 5 minutes.

- the app doesn't seem to make my phone vibrate when something shows up on the map. Annoying.

- also it seems to be much more battery heavy than PoGo.

- I like that you can customise your ministry ID with filters and hogwarts scarves, and choose your hogwarts house (hufflepuff, obvs).

- everything you collect goes into a thing like a sticker book. rewards fro each thing you collect.

- you can choose between being an Auror, Magizoologist and a Professor when you get to level 6. Not quite sure what that's all about yet, I'm a Professor and you use the wee scroll things to progress in your career.

- potions appear to take time to brew but you can speed them up using gold if you want.

- daily challenges like in PoGo.

I've just downloaded but code is 4361 6597 9428

DonkeyHohtay Fri 21-Jun-19 11:37:14

Hmm, that looks very odd @derekthe1adyhamster. I did get the blue "aura" type thing around on the phone, but there was a boot inside it. Report as an issue?

If you click on the suitcase, then the settings in top left and then the ? bottom right, there's a "report a bug" function.

TheFatberg Fri 21-Jun-19 11:40:42

I've downloaded but haven't played yet. I'll be adding people when I get set up.

mummyhaschangedhername Fri 21-Jun-19 11:44:54

Downloaded, I take it I now need to go for a walk to progress?

Adding everyone smile Game is pretty but murder on my battery. Might need to dig out the power bank to get much walking done. My code is 2348 0713 6039, feel free to add.

I was early for my hair dresser appointment so had 20 minutes in the park but ended up running out a points for spells. Got to level 3

There's a lot to like about WU but I'm so frustrated with the spell energy. Plus as I walk around the iPhone locks itself so it's not counting anything, which I seem to remember was an issue at one point with PoGo after a random update. I like the spell casting, that's cool, I'm still working that bit out though and I can see me running out of spell energy and not being able to do much after that. I'm not near any inns, just one on the whole of the mile-long school run, so it'll take a long time to get enough energy back to really do much. I really hope they change that, tbh.

user1496345234 Fri 21-Jun-19 14:09:43

Hiya, my code is 4512 4766 9087 (Paws3000) feel free to add me.
