Brilliant Event Guide: Lost Love Part 2


This Harry Potter: Wizards Unite guide is focused on the second installment of the Lost Love Brilliant Event. The SOS Task Force will continue to see the new mechanic in regards to Potion Ingredients we will see and interact with on the game Map AND when you place Registry images on your page, so read on or check out my YouTube channel for more information on how it will work!

New Brilliant Event Mechanic, the Sequel

This Brilliant Event is continuing the experiment of a new mechanic we saw in Part 1 of Lost Love that rewards players for placing the Registry images by boosting the effectiveness of Potions even further than before. Here’s how to do it:

  • When placing the Severus Snape images (15 total), Healing Potions will heal 50% stamina instead of the usual 35%.
  • When placing the Vase of Lilies image (5 total), Baruffio’s Brain Elixir increases in duration from 30 minutes to 45 minutes.
  • When placing the Photograph of Lily and Severus (3 total), the amount of spell casts affected by Potent Exstimulo Potions increases from 5 spell casts to 6 spell casts.

Brilliant Event Tasks

As per usual, these tasks all come straight from the development team. They should be accurate unless the HP:WU developers make last-minute changes (again). If anything changes, I will update this article as soon as possible!

This Brilliant Event is 4 steps long, as is tradition. You have to complete each section before progressing to the next one. Once you finish the regular quest steps, you can move onto the Bonus Assignment. It should also be noted that the Bonus Bundle will not unlock in the Diagon Alley store until you reach the Bonus Assignment step of the Brilliant Event.

Brilliant Portkeys from this week of the Lost Love Brilliant Event will continue to feature the new Portkey Portmanteaus location: Madam Puddifoot’s Tea Shop. Unfortunately there are no singing cupids, but the location is still fun to visit nonetheless.

Put those half-priced Honeyduke’s Valentine candies aside and let’s begin!

Lost Love Quest 1/4

Like I mentioned before, Potent Exstimulo Potion Ingredients should be spawning frequently in the Brilliant Event. I know, I know. I can hear you saying, “But Matt, the event was super broken and EVERYTHING was spawning…”

I have been told by Fazes the issues with the Ingredients spawns from this past week should be sorted out by the time this part of the event rolls out. Do you have the ingredients list memorized? If not, no biggie! Look out for Bitterroot, Snowdrop, Re’em Blood, and Unicorn Hair.

Much like the first half of the event, start brewing the Potions for which you are collecting Ingredients as soon as you meet the requirements! You will need them in the following quest step!

Brilliant Foundables and Where to Find Them

Tips to Complete the Brilliant Event

If this is your first Brilliant Event, or if you’re thrown off by the different tasks, these tips will help you complete the Brilliant Event before the time runs out. With careful planning (and a little bit of walking!), 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. This should be alleviated by the additional slots for Portkeys and Adventure Sync, but we’re interested to hear feedback if you experience anything to the contrary!
  • To complete the “Use X Potion 2 Times” step quickly, make sure to brew Baruffio’s Brain Elixir before the event begins if your supplies are running low. This will save you valuable time when it comes to brewing them later since they take 12 hours.
  • If you’ve having trouble finding Brilliant Traces, avoid flagged areas. They are less likely to spawn in those areas.
  • To collect the Brilliant Photograph of Lily and Severus, you need to do Wizarding Challenges (Fortress battles) with a Brilliant Runestone. Try Fortress Chambers Ruins I to Tower II to collect these Fragments.
  • If you need to complete the event quickly, or you only have a short time to work on it, try playing at a sponsored Simon Mall. Inns, Fortresses, and spawns are all plentiful.
  • Save your Scrolls 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 some Professors have also collected all of them. At this point, the question is whether to save Restricted Section books for another skill tree, or invest them in a second profession. That’s a personal choice, so good luck!

I’m getting tired of the opening of portkeys being part of the tasks. And I am a bit overwhelmed by the number of events this month.

I just spent my whole lunch time walking because I needed to open 5 portkeys for part 1. I only finished so late because it was almost impossible to find the map ingredients I needed. It was stressful.

Why is there still “Lost Love Week 1”? Are the bonuses the same?

Just a thought.. think a silver key should be a reward before unlocking the portkeys therefore when getting to that task you have an additional key. There has been times I have had only the one key. Also on that note, you purchase a key, why can’t they be good three times? Would purchase more if this was the case, one time use especially on a 3km Portkey, doesn’t seem fair.

Wow, very good point. I didn’t even think of that. My play tends to be more on-and-off (almost no one plays in my town); I open the game every day and try to do as much as I can from my house but I don’t get out much, so Portkeys are a slog for me and therefore I usually have a few silver keys just knocking around – like right now I have 5. But what really bums me out is the number of Foundables required from Portkeys in these events – 5 is a bit much, especially seeing as… Read more »

Hey, task 3/4 is only “Use Healing Potion 6 times”. No need to use it in Wizarding Challanges. I just let a Centaur hit me 6 times and used the potion.

I used 5 different Brilliant Lost Love runestones today in different chamber levels and didn’t get one photo!! I used 2 yesterday and didn’t get one, either. What’s up with that? It’s not like I don’t have plenty to try again tomorrow, but that’s damn frustrating. Regarding ingredients, I thought it was “Potion Ingredients for Baruffio’s Brain Elixir, Healing Potion, and Potent Exstimulo Potion will be the only Ingredients that appear on the Map.” Why am I seeing more Bulbadox Juice, Butterscotch, Sopophorous Bean, and Angel’s Trumpet than I normally see – yet no Leaping Toadstools, ever, and certainly not… Read more »

Funny how I normally can only find 2KM portkeys until I get to the bonus and then they are all 5KM and 10 KM.
