just on time
I got a key that is 7 letters but the passkey is 12? The word makes sense do I use it to get the rest?
For those who need translation
”Oops! I dropped my potion ingredients together with my 12 letter passkey. Could you heko me pick it up? Once you have found the key, start at athe top right of it and go clockwise."
That steals fun from others. You should take that down.
**Edited to add: This referred to a partial solution that was posted and has been taken down.
No, it's green
I still don't know what I'm supposed to do with it so
Typing the unused letters links back to the same image so seems like a no go to me
Maybe the repeated letters could help in something?
Hey guys trolls are affecting it now by making tiny.cc that lead back to the original image
@macevergreen @ReneZ11 you need to edit your responses to take out the quote of the image.
Niantic seems use ingredients name from the Harry Potter Wizards Unite, is it just a coincidence or a connection?
At the same point. Is it good or bad that trolls are affecting our challenge? 😂
Do these twelve letters tell you anything? They are clockwise, saldanto one letter of all
they kinda look like glyphs when they are drawn out...
@NianticOfficial seems that, due to trolling, you may need to edit the original post so that we can KNOW when we get to the next stage, and not accidentally hit upon something somebody put up on a lark with a "Congratulations!" message just to mess with us
I got a Chinese website. Guess I’ll just wait...
I was thinking about that. However, I find these ingredients, according to Professor Snape, are used for diffferent potions which have no apparent connections.
Wizards Unite didn't invent those potion ingredients, they were always part of the Harry Potter universe (and some of them are real).
So there are 7 leftover letters that, unjumbled, spell a word. In solving the initial puzzle, two cells are used twice (which is unusual for this kind of snaky wordsearch puzzle). But we're supposed to be looking for a TWELVE letter passkey, not seven. And we're supposed to be going clockwise from its top-right.
Which leaves me currently blind as to the next stage. I assume I'm supposed to enter 12 characters into tiny.cc/abcdefghijkl once I identify some specific ordering?
(I also note the probably useless trivia that the only letters missing from the puzzle grid are: j, p, q)
Could it be a product of those components? The actual "Potion"?
I have found 4 of them but... I dont know :/
I'm sort of convinced the unused letters come into play somehow.
But yes I've gotten the troll redirect and the Chinese website so far :D
Made it to step 2!
I've never encounter such font.
