    I just watched the new trailer:

    And I’m pretty excited!

    Just thought I’d jump the gun and create a place to discuss when it officially releases in TWO DAYS!

    I am lowkey bummed that houses in no affects mechanics, and is purely cosmetic, but I kind of understand why Niantic did it that way. I think it will be super interesting to see what the actual game play experience is like? What professions are y’all going into? I am leaning magizoologist myself.

    I wonder if it will have a friends feature similar to the one in Pokemon Go? :thinking:

    Im not sure what to make of this.

    I will probably play for awhile, but I live in an area with mininum phone signal and very few Niantic focus points/hubs (based on ingress/pokemon go exp).

    All for adventuring to play, but it really dampens your ability to level up when you cant play near constantly.

    So, those that are in, what are you planning on becoming? At the moment I’m looking like a pure damage Auror.

    • Sapphire

      Member
      June 20, 2019 at 6:23 pm

      Can you share the options?

      • Teejafaw

        Member
        June 20, 2019 at 6:32 pm

        The options are:

        Auror: Seems to be a damage focused class based on just beating on enemies. Upgrades are related to damage and critical chance, with some health bonuses. A few hexes and a lot of opening burst it looks look. Three capstones are 25% precision vs Death Eaters, 50% critical power vs foes with 100% stamina and 20% Protego power vs Dark wizards.

        They beat Dark Arts and are beaten by Beast.

        Magizoologist: Looks like a healer/support class.They have stamina restoration for allies and a revive. They’re best when not being attacked and in the backline, as a lot of their buffs come from having high health, whereas Aurors rely on enemies having low health.

        They beat beasts but are bad against curiosities.

        Professor: Is a bit of a mix between the two. They’re a support class that debuffs enemies by inflicting them with “Impairments” which harm them whenever they attack or defend. This seems better in groups, but looks like it can be pretty lethal just by itself to be honest. They have some minor healing abilities and some pretty sweet defence stuff going on.

        They beat curiosities but are bad against dark arts.

        Just my opinions from so far and what is available to me. :stuck_out_tongue:

        I can expand on that if anyone wants?

        • Sapphire

          Member
          June 20, 2019 at 6:39 pm

          Thank you.

          Based on that I’m mostly pulled to professor.

          Not sure I’m likely to be playing much as part of a group, and the balance of healing and attack sounds more pleasing than jumping on the warrior/healer wagons.

          I’ll probably level up to that at lunch tomorrow. :slight_smile:

          Got to say there seems to be a lot more to it than ingress or Pokémon go had when I used to play them.

          • Teejafaw

            Member
            June 20, 2019 at 6:55 pm

            Professor spells are:

            Deterioration Hex: Reduces stamina of enemy every time they attack or defend.

            Mending Charm: Restore a Teammate’s stamina by a small amount.

            The Protection Charm: Increases defence of teammate.

            Proficiency Charm: Increases whole team’s proficiency power.

            Interesting upgrades are these:

            Improved Deterioration Hex: Each upgrade increases stamina damage dealt by 10 x 2.

            Deterioration Hex Maxima: Increase stamina damage dealt by 10 x 3.

            Mending Charm Maxima: +2 Stamina Restored

            Defence Charm: +2% Defence x 4.

            Suggests that professor’s passive damage/DoT is madness but their healing is pretty poor.

            Edit: Looking at that Deterioration damage, I’m almost tempted to swap myself, that looks insane.

              3 from 4 spells are to influence your team mates. I wonder if that includes boosting NPCs.

              Are the other classes stacked as heavily in favour of improving team performance, or do they have more of a personal influence element?

              I’ll only post the class stuff! No spoilers! :stuck_out_tongue:

              Aurors have:

              Weakening Hex: Lower a foe’s power.

              Bat-Bogey Hex: Reduce stamina by a small amount (this is tiny).

              Focus Charm: Transfer focus from you to someone else.

              Confusion Hex: Reduce Defence, Dodge and Defence Breach. (If you block an attack, you take some damage, I assume this makes that damage less.)

              Magizoologists have:

              Stamina Charm: Seems like a decent heal? I don’t have any numbers on it since I’ve not unlocked it.

              Mending Charm: A weaker heal?

              Revive Charm: Revives an ally.

              Bravery Charm: Boost whole team power against elite foes.

          Have you fought a Horned Serpent before? They get to attack up to four times in a row (though I’m still not sure what determines whose turn it is in combat yet), and the last one I fought brought my stamina to zero. I’ve also run into an Erkling, but they’re easy to fight. This game makes me want to walk around my neighborhood at night, looking for more oddities!

            They’re great for exp when you combine farming them with a brainy potion! 1k each. Probably more if you prestige them!

            I also have literally no idea what half the arbitrary things that happen are about in this game!!!

            Maybe Aurors have it easier in unprepared combat but I seem to be able to do fine.

    Not having any energy recharge is quite painful!

    I’ve been nudging myself by pushing the limits of drifting so I can reach a distant inn for the most part.

    I’ve been planting in places I’m not going to reap any benefits from but that’s netted me a badge so that makes me happy.

    I feel like I’ve hit a definite soft-wall though.

    I’m full on ingredients I can’t do anything with yet, I’ve got no energy, and I’ve been abandoning most of my encounters because they’re worthless to me at this point and just energy expenditures, which are oddly hard to actually succeed at.

    I’ve even filled out my pockets with water cans and seeds, and I was relentlessly planting all day!

    At least I feel fit! :sweat_smile:

    Condolences to everyone who isn’t in yet, I’m about to use up all my locked thingies and spin around the living room like mad.

    Has anyone else had trouble with casting a Masterful spell then having the Confoundable vanish on you? I mean, I understand casting a Masterful isn’t a guaranteed catch, but I feel like I shouldn’t be losing then quite as often as I am. Over 50% of my Masterful casts have resulted in losing the Foundable altogether and it’s probably the most frustrating thing I’ve come across. Thoughts?

    • Sapphire

      June 24, 2019 at 7:47 pm

      I’m yet to achieve masterful, mostly good casts :confused:

      Do tend to get items being magiced away in batches. Then back to normal, yet to identify any reason. It’s deeply annoying, but less annoying than a great cast being resisted and the a follow up fair cast doing the job…

      If you tip your phone back, so top goes lower than the bottom it turns the screen black with the SoS logo.

      Similar thing maybe?

        They added a feature fairly recently where you can sync your phone’s fitness tracker/pedometer thing to the game so you can work on eggs and buddy candy without having the game open.

          Ravenclaws are the best, but since most of the friends I have are self proclaimed bookworms from this forum, I’m not to surprised.

          15R 10H 5S 2G

          Find it irl too, the 2 most focused on houses in the books are the ones people seem to associate less with.

          Ravenclaws and Hufflepuffs have less cannon, leaving more room for imagination.

            True, the number of Ravenclaws here isn’t surprising just based on the nature of this forum. Most of my friends irl are actually Gryffindor or Hufflepuffs though, I’m only 1 of 2 Ravenclaws in my extended circle. So it’s nice to see so many others here!
