Happy Holidays, witches and wizards! I hope this post finds you well and this time is full of comfort and joy (comfort and joy!). The Harry Potter: Wizards Unite team has put together a celebratory end-of-year event with a familiar holiday twist as we revisit the Yule Ball, as well as rare Foundables that I personally need to find in my stocking.
Editor-in-chief Brita has a video up on her channel. Stay tuned for a music video from me!

12 Tasks of Christmas Quest Steps
|Use Master Notes on 12 Potions-a-Brewing||1 Dark Detector|
|Use 11 Potent Exstimulo Potions||1 Silver Key|
|Complete 10 Tower Chamber V Challenges||2 Dawdle Draught|
|Return 9 Trolls Dancing||10 Spell Energy|
|Place 8 Images in the Registry||8 Gold Coins|
|Return 7 Foundables-a-Swimming||3 Unicorn Hair|

In case the festive tasks aren’t clear, here’s a quick translation.
- Trolls Dancing = Music Box Foundable
- Foundables-a-Swimming = Water Globe Confoundables
- Boy Who Lived = any Harry Potter Foundable
If you complete all 12 Tasks of Christmas, you earn bonus rewards! These rewards are:
- 200 Wizarding XP
- 2 Defense Against the Dark Arts Books
- 2 Spell Books
- 2 Baruffio Ingredient Gifts
- 2 Extravagant Spell Energy Gifts
- 2 Exstimulo Ingredient Gifts
My primary advice for completing these steps is BREW, BREW, BREW! The more Tonic for Trace Detection, Baruffio’s Brain Elixir, and Potent Exstimulo Potions you have in stock, the better! Not only will it help you knock these tasks out quickly, but it will also be a huge help to all players yet to reach level 60. Use the required Potent Exstimulo Potions on Adversaries to get the best use out of them.
Other basic prep advice:
Start using Legends of Hogwarts Runestones in Wizarding Challenges to collect Yule Ball Programs. These will not drop in Wizarding Challenges during the event, although they will be available in the event Portkeys. If you want to prestige the Yule Ball Great Hall page, you will need a lot of Yule Ball Program Fragments.
If you have any Images ready to place in your Registry before the event begins, STOP. Wait until the 12 Tasks of Christmas is live before you place those Images so you get credit for the task.
