Brilliant Event Tasks

The Brilliant Event tasks are fairly straightforward. Brew a few Potions in advance, do a bunch of Wizarding Challenges, and you’re pretty much set for the regular tasks. The Bonus Assignment is more challenging, but that’s the intent–not everyone is supposed to finish the Bonus Assignment.

Baby Beasts Quest 1/4

Starting off easy! Everyone should have a few extra Tonic for Trace Detection in their Vault, especially after the reduced brewing time on Community Day. Using that will help you find the Brilliant Traces. Then it’s just a matter of walking around a bit to find items on the Map.

Use 1 Tonic for Trace Detection 3 Bitterroot

Prepare for this quest in advance! Just brew up 3 regular Exstimulo Potions. Once you reach the 2nd set of tasks, you can quickly collect all 3 of them.

If you’re having trouble finding High-Threat Foundables, look for Oddities in the evening.

More easy tasks to complete. Just use those Exstimulo Potions that you just brewed!

You might need to do a few Wizarding Challenges with Brilliant Baby Beasts Runestones to get the Baby Horned Serpent, but this also shouldn’t take long overall.

To complete these tasks quickly, hang out in the Forest or Dark Chambers of the Knight Bus and wait for other players to join you. With each Wizarding Challenge with 3 or more teammates (so 4-5 people total), use a single Potion. You’ll quickly knock out all 3 tasks!

Brilliant Foundables and Where to Find Them

Just like previous Brilliant Events, you will only be able to encounter some of these Brilliant Foundables in the wild. The others are available as rewards for completing event tasks, doing Wizarding Challenges with Brilliant Runestones, and unlocking Brilliant Portkeys. Once again, you can also collect the Portkey Foundable by finishing the entire Bonus Assignment.

Tips to Complete the Brilliant Event

If this is your first Brilliant Event, these tips will help you complete the Brilliant Event before the time runs out. With careful planning, you can complete the Bonus Assignment as well!

  • As a reminder, Part 1 Portkeys will give you Part 1 Rewards anytime you open them, even if you wait to open them during Part 2. Brilliant Portkeys will glow purple on the Map. Be sure to collect 5 Portkeys during the Brilliant Event, even if you don’t open them all during the event.
  • However, if you’re nervous about finding enough time to walk, you can also collect all 5 of the Portkey Brilliant Foundables by finishing the entire Bonus Assignment.
  • To find the Brilliant Baby Horned Serpent, you must do Wizarding Challenges with the specific Brilliant Event Runestones. To minimize your Spell Energy, stick with the Ruins Chambers. It might take a few extra Wizarding Challenges to get the 3 Foundables you need, but you’ll be able to do so quickly, without expending too many resources.
  • If you do a Wizarding Challenge with a Brilliant Event Baby Beast Runestone AFTER the second week ends, then you have a chance at getting the Brilliant Augurey OR the Brilliant Baby Horned Serpent.
  • If you decide to visit Inns, Fortresses, or Greenhouses during this event, continue to practice social distancing. Check out our previous article on staying safe while playing Wizards Unite.
  • Save your Scrolls, your Spell Books, and your Restricted Section Books until the end of the event. Then use our guide to spend them wisely! That said, most Aurors and Magizoologists have already earned all the necessary Restricted Section Books, and many Professors have also done so. At this point, you can either hold on to your resources in case they’re needed for the next lesson plan, or you can start working on a second profession. That is a personal decision, and I don’t have any advanced knowledge on what the next lesson plan will look like.

Brilliant Event Bundles

There are 4 bundles total that will be available during this event. Be sure to snag the Free Bundle as soon as the event starts! The Bonus Bundle will not be available until the Bonus Assignment is unlocked, so keep that in mind. Shoutout to Orange Wizard for his handy infographic!

Infographic depicting store bundles for Brilliant Event Baby Beasts Week 2

Let’s calculate the value of these bundles.

First up, the SOS Bundle.

A single Potent Exstimulo Potion in Diagon Alley costs 75 Gold. However, if you have all of the common Ingredients, it’s a better deal to buy 1 Unicorn Hair for 30 Gold, use Master Notes in the Cauldron, and then collect the Potion immediately for 41 Gold. Thus I place the value of a Potent Exstimulo Potion at 71 Gold.

With that value, 5 Potent Exstimulo Potions are worth 355 Gold.

150 Spell Energy costs 300 Gold.

The SOS Bundle is a really good deal IF you need discounted Spell Energy. In that case, it’s a savings of 235 Gold.

Next up is the Brilliant Bundle.

For these Potions, I’m using values calculated by Andolov and other Wizards Unite Community team members. Since none of these Potions have rare Ingredients, the cost of Ingredients is not factored into their value. The value is the cost of immediately collecting a Potion after using Master Notes in a Gold (rental) Cauldron.

A Strong Invigoration Draught is worth 28 Gold. Thus 5 Strong Invigoration Draughts are worth 140 Gold.

A Wit-Sharpening Potion is worth 19 Gold. Thus 5 Wit-Sharpening Potions are worth 95 Gold.

A Healing Potion is worth 10 Gold. Thus 5 Healing Potions are worth 50 Gold.

150 Spell Energy costs 300 Gold.

That makes the overall value of the Brilliant Bundle only 585 Gold, which is less than the cost of it. That said, if you live somewhere without Ingredients on the Map, then the value of Potions to YOU more than the value I calculated. In that case, this bundle could offer good savings.

Finally, the Bonus Assignment Bundle.

10 Strong Invigoration Draughts are worth 280 Gold.

15 Wit-Sharpening Potions are worth 285 Gold.

15 Potent Exstimulo Potions are worth 1065 Gold.

150 Spell Energy costs 300 Gold. This makes the overall value of the bundle only 1930 Gold, which is less than the cost. Again, if you struggle to collect Ingredients, AND you need discounted Spell Energy, you might still find value in it.

Are you excited for this Brilliant Event? What do you think of the tasks, rewards, bundles, and more?
