It should work I have 3 that I managed to get from the bazarr and it says 3/6 but then again those are not traded.Is the fomori card you have enchanted in any way maybe thats why it does not count.Btw did your friend mention who drops the handsome fomori its tiring waiting at the bazarr.
Correction:The ones I got from the bazarr actually did not count.Prof. Greyrose can you help with this your ice wizards need help :(
After reading your post I went and checked for myself.I traded a catalan to my friend for a handsome fomori.But when I checked my recipe it still said zero handsome fomori cards but the catalan card I traded her showed up in her recipe.Is this a glitch? Or do the fomori's still count when you get all the ingredients needed?
