Fazes of Harry Potter: Wizards Unite just dropped all the exciting new details about the upcoming Harrowing Halloween Event! The HPWU team has been teasing players about a fun Halloween event, and now we finally know what to expect.
Halloween is just around the corner! Join the fun in game with a special set of tasks, plus a Harrowing Halloween Chamber in Fortresses.
Here’s a snippet from the official Harrowing Halloween announcement.
Are you brave enough to take on a spine-chilling Special Assignment this Halloween to earn exclusive limited-time rewards? First encountered in the Chamber of Secrets, Slytherin’s Basilisk will be making a limited-time appearance this Halloween… just make sure to avoid eye contact with anything slithering in the dark!
Using the Dark Arts Runestones you’ve been saving up all month, you’ll be able to gain entry into a special Harrowing Halloween Chamber in Fortresses, where something sinister lies in wait… The more Dark Arts Runestones you and your friends use, and the higher their levels, the greater your chances of encountering the exclusive Slytherin’s Basilisk.

Tips to Complete the Harrowing Halloween Event
UPDATE 10/30/2019: This is an easy event to complete! To finish all of the tasks, you’re best off soloing the Harrowing Halloween Chamber until you encounter the Basilisk. The Dark Witches and the Dark Ministry Officials are easy to encounter and easy to defeat. The Basilisk is easy to defeat as well.
Once you complete all the tasks, then doing Fortress Challenges with a group should (theoretically) help you grind Challenge XP. I will update this again once I’ve confirmed this hunch. Plus the Basilisk is an Elite Foe, so taking it out counts towards the ELITE FOES DEFEATED Achievement.
You have a week to grind Dark Arts Foundables. The more Dark Arts Runestones you can collect before Halloween, the better.
If you have access to a sponsored Fortress, play there! The bonuses can make a big difference, especially if you’re like me and mostly have low-level Runestones.
Try to play all three days. You only have 48 hours to complete the Harrowing Halloween Event. Make them count.
My friend Animagus has a great video on this event!
