Wizards Unite artwork for 12 Tasks of Christmas 2020 event featuring Hermione and Vicktor, Harry and Parvati

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!


The 12 Tasks of Christmas Event Details

This event will run from December 29th until January 7th, starting and ending at 2pm ET as usual.

There will be boosted spawns of the following Foundables on the Map while using Tonic for Trace Detection:

  • Foundables guarded by Water Orb Confoundables:
    • Gryffindor Student
    • Ministry Administrator
    • Baby Mandrake
    • Pickett
  • Yule Ball Traces:
    • Hagrid and Madame Maxime
    • Angelina and Fred
    • Hermione and Viktor
    • Harry and Parvati
  • Harry Potter Traces:

    • Young Harry Potter
  • And more!

The following special in-game bonuses will be active as well:

12 Tasks of Christmas Quest Steps

2 Masterful Spell Casts In a Row 1 Wit-Sharpening Potion
Return 1 Boy Who Lived 10 Spell Energy

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.

Two masterful spell casts in a row?

This task was easier than I expected and was the first one I completed. The key for me was not trying to make Masterful casts. And some traces are easier than others.

I’ve got at least 6 Yule ball registry foundables this morning but none have registered on the task. What am I doing wrong?

The task requires you to *place* the Images on the Yule Ball page. You’ll need to return many of them for this to occur.

Finished the event. Two masterful were easier than I expected.

I should of cleared out the gifts to give people, so I lost a bunch of gifts from collecting the ending. That was disappointing.

How is everyone getting the Occamy eggs? I’m not getting them as traces, and they don’t appear as potential rewards for fortress challenges!
