Potter’s Calamity Brilliant Event; Full Event Details

Welcome, fellow wizard, to the Potter’s Calamity Brilliant Event!

The next special event for Harry Potter: Wizards Unite is coming today, July 16th. The first portion of the event will last for one week, running to July 23rd. A second week of the event will begin on July 30th through to August 6th.

Here is the official in-game description of the event:

An unusually high number of Harry Potter-related Foundables is being reported. Minister Granger theorizes that a recent Daily Prophet feature about Harry’s involvement with the SOS Task Force may be the cause.

Event Runestones

Special event runestones will be available each time you ‘rank up’ the Potter’s Calamity Brilliant Event’s registry page. Using these runestones in fortresses will reward you with fragments for the registry.

Potter’s Calamity Brilliant Event: Event Tips

  • Make full use of the Baruffio’s Brain Elixir potion whenever you can; you can expect to receive 1000+ XP per completed Hedwig and Quidditch Harry! (Editors Update: Sadly, this got nerfed, but you can still wrack up some good XP…just not as good.)
  • Try and keep your ingredients for potions well stocked and choose to brew 2 hour potions to complete the brew potion tasks faster.
  • Save 3-4 silver keys for the special 7km portkeys. You will need these to fill out the registry page as well.
  • Save some 2km portkeys for a quick unlock to complete the portkey special assignment tasks.
  • DO NOT waste higher tier potions (Dawdle Draughts and Potent Estimulo) on the wild encounters. If the first part of this event is anything to go by, you will find plenty!
  • Check out our guide on how to perform masterful spell casts for help on regularly hitting great spells for one of the tasks, and also hitting more masterful spells.

We hope this guide to the Potter’s Calamity Brilliant Event gives you all the info you need to have a successful time!
