Fortune Tokens, MP Boosts, and Prophecies

Posted by HEX Staff on September 23, 2022 - 12:00 am

As renovations continue on the fabled Seer's personal fortune-telling booth, Professor Trelawney has sought out new ways to share her insights with true diviners. With some help from Professor McGonagall, Sybil has tuned her sights on predicting when you'll Transfigure your next fortune token, allowing her to finally break her silence.

Fortune Tokens now have a unique interaction that occurs when Transfigured from your Inventory. Professor Trelawney will share a fortune with you, similar to the fortune you would receive from her booth in Diagon Alley. With each fortune she foretells, you will have a small chance to receive progress towards the Prophatem Tempus spell (for those who have yet to unlock it), a potential boost to your MP, or even additional fortune tokens. Just as before, you'll receive an event if these special results occur.

In her eagerness to make up for lost time and lost tokens, Professor Trelawney is now willing to offer additional guidance when using the Prophatem Tempus spell. Should you question the prophecies you initially see, Sybil is willing to recalibrate your crystal ball to be sure it's tuned to your true future. She'll offer this service once per cast in exchange for five (5) fortune tokens each time.

A few weeks ago, the Imperium Capacitus spell received a silent update to improve the method by which MP regeneration is calculated. This allows us to more accurately calculate MP regeneration when you're offline now, too. We believe this will eliminate the need to be online for MP regeneration to continue ahead of the spell ending. This change to offline regeneration also applies to the MP regeneration prophecy.
