How to Prepare for the Brilliant Event

Most Wizards Unite events will be easier in general if you work on your SOS Training. Unlock as many of these nodes as you can!

With a stronger Baruffio’s Brain Elixir, you can earn Wizarding XP more quickly.

With reduced brewing times for Exstimulo Potions and Healing Potions, you can do Master Notes on Potions more quickly.

With more Traces revealed by Tonic for Trace Detection, you can more quickly find Brilliant Traces to complete tasks.

Brilliant Event Tasks

To complete the first set of tasks quickly, pre-brew 3 Potions in your Cauldron and wait until the event begins to collect them.

Also in preparation for the second set of tasks, do not visit the Brilliant Registry Page until you reach that step! Additionally, stop returning Brilliant Foundables once you reach 19 of either. Once you reach 20, you’re automatically taken to the Brilliant Registry Page, which you do not want. If you forget, you can force close the app to avoid collecting any Brilliant Runestones.

Creature Discomforts Quest 1/4

As already mentioned, try to pre-brew Potions before the event starts so you can collect them right away. Use a Tonic for Trace Detection to find enough Brilliant Traces.

Collect Ingredients or Portmanteaus 3 Times from the Map 2 Re’em Blood
Brew 3 Potions 2 Abraxan Hair
Return 12 Brilliant Baby Troll Foundables 1 Wit-Sharpening Potion

1st Quest Rewards

  • 550 Wizarding XP
  • 2 Restricted Section Books
  • 50 Brilliant Family XP
  • 10 Spell Energy

Creature Discomforts Quest 2/4

Using Master Notes is a slowdown task. If you have Gold available to rent a second Cauldron, great. Even if you do not, make sure you brew Healing Potions or regular Exstimulo Potions since they take the shortest amount of time to brew.

To collect Brilliant Creature Discomfort Runestones, visit the Brilliant Registry Page. Each time you level up, you collect a Runestone. To collect 6 of these quickly, do NOT visit the Brilliant Registry Page until you reach this step.

Return 1 Adult Thestral Foundable 4 Runespoor Eggs
Use Master Notes 5 Times 1 Exstimulo Potion
Collect 6 Brilliant Creature Discomforts Runestones 6 Snowdrop

2nd Quest Rewards

  • 750 Wizarding XP
  • 75 Brilliant Family XP
  • 3 Restricted Section Books
  • 10 Spell Energy

Creature Discomforts Quest 3/4

As with the first set of tasks, use a Tonic for Trace Detection to boost the Foundables you need and to give you many chances to cast spells. Because you collected the Brilliant Runestones in the previous task, using a Trace Charm on a Brilliant Baby Baby Chinese Fireball would also be a good way to speed through this task.

Wingardium Leviosa is the new spell for the Brilliant Baby Troll. If you’re unable to do the Great spell casts, try contacting in-game support.

Hop on the Knight Bus. Ruins V to Tower II usually give you 3-4 Foes, so you can knock those out fairly quickly.

Return 12 Brilliant Baby Chinese Fireball Foundables 1 Strong Exstimulo Potion
Cast 8 Great (or better) Wingardium Leviosa Spells 3 Leaping Toadstool
Defeat 15 Foes in Wizarding Challenges 1 Silver Key

3rd Quest Rewards

  • 1250 Wizarding XP
  • 75 Brilliant Family XP
  • 5 Restricted Section Books
  • 10 Spell Energy

Creature Discomforts Quest 4/4

Drink a Baruffio’s Brain Elixir to earn Wizarding XP more quickly.

To find more Adult Thestral Foundables, use a Trace Charm on one so it will multiply. Using Tonic for Trace Detection will help with Thestrals as well as Brilliant Traces.

Return 3 Adult Thestral Foundables 1 Spell Book
Earn 7500 Wizarding XP from Challenges 1 Spell Book
Collect 15 Mysterious Note Pieces By Returning Brilliant Creature Discomforts Foundables 1 Spell Book

4th Quest Rewards

  • 5 Restricted Section Books
  • 50 Gold
  • 5 Defense Against the Dark Arts Books
  • 30 Spell Energy
  • 1 Brilliant Satchel of Fire Crab Shell Jewels Registry Image

Creature Discomforts BONUS Assignment!

Wingardium Leviosa is a new spell, so good luck getting Masterful casts.

XpectoGO does Wednesday Knight Bus livestreams, and Witches Unite does Thursday livestreams, so try joining them if you need help defeating your highest unlocked Chamber.

To earn 12,500 Wizarding XP quickly, once again, drink a Brain Elixir. Use your Trace Charm on every red beam (Severe and Emergency Traces). If you can visit an Inn safely, stack Dark Detectors to attract a greater amount of high-threat Traces. Wait until you’re on the Bonus Assignment to open 20 Gifts, prioritizing any Extravagant Gifts and others with high Wizarding XP. Honestly, I can get the 12,500 Wizarding XP with a Brain Elixir and just a handful of Extravagant Gifts.

Using 10 Exstimulo Potions is a frustrating task, but you can use the regular Potions. Consider using an Edible Dark Mark to attract Adversaries so you don’t “waste” Exstimulo Potions.

Tonic for Trace Detection will help you find more Brilliant Traces.

Cast 3 Masterful Wingardium Leviosa Spells 1 Baruffio’s Brain Elixir
Complete Highest Unlocked Chamber 1 Time 1 Silver Key
Earn 12,500 Wizarding XP 1 Spell Book
Use Any 10 Exstimulo Potions 10 Spell Energy
Return 45 Brilliant Creature Discomforts Foundables 1 Potent Exstimulo Potion

Bonus Assignment Rewards

  • 2000 Wizarding XP
  • 100 Brilliant Family XP
  • 5 Defense Against the Dark Arts Books
  • 1 Brilliant Achievement Badge
  • 20 Spell Energy
  • 5 Brilliant Baby Graphorn Registry Images

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 doing Wizarding Challenges with Brilliant Runestones and unlocking Brilliant Portkeys.

If you complete the Bonus Assignment, you do NOT need to unlock any Brilliant Portkeys.

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!

  • If you are below level 20 in Wizards Unite, you might want to use Exstimulo Potions on the Brilliant Foundables. Otherwise they will use a lot of Spell Energy to return, because they resist.
  • 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 pick up 5 Brilliant Portkeys during the Brilliant Event, even if you don’t open them all during the event.
  • If you are nervous about finding time to walk the Brilliant Portkeys, you can also earn the necessary Foundable Fragments by completing the Bonus Assignment.
  • To find the Brilliant Baby Thestral, you must do Wizarding Challenges with the specific Brilliant Event Runestones. It’s easiest to do this during Quest 3 or 4 since those already require Wizarding Challenges. To minimize your usage of Spell Energy, stick with Ruins IV-V Chambers. It might take a few extra Wizarding Challenges to get the 3 Fragments you need, but you’ll be able to do so quickly, without expending too many resources. If you’re low on Runestones, try Tower I-II Chambers to improve your odds of earning the required Fragments.
  • 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 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 invest your resources in Advanced Adversarial Combat, you can start working on a second profession, or you can invest in SOS Training. That is a personal decision, so good luck!

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.

First up, the SOS Bundle! This bundle keeps appearing in Brilliant Events: 5 Silver Keys and 100 Spell Energy for 450 Gold. I’m going to use the same math because it hasn’t changed either.

You can buy 10 Silver Keys for 720 Gold, making the individual value of each Silver Key 72 Gold. 5 Silver Keys are thus worth 360 Gold. If you only need Silver Keys, the SOS Bundle is not a good value.

100 Spell Energy costs 200 Gold, bringing the bundle value up to 560 Gold, a savings of 110 Gold. This bundle is only valuable if you need discounted Spell Energy (which you might after Community Day).

Next up, the Brilliant Bundle! For 800 Gold, you get:

  • 4 Baruffio’s Brain Elixirs
  • 6 Potent Exstimulo Potions
  • 3 Tonics for Trace Detection
  • 30 Spell Energy

A single Baruffio’s Brain Elixir costs 100 Gold in Diagon Alley. However, if you just need to buy the rare Ingredients, it’s a better deal to spend 20 Gold for 1 Dragon Claw and 12 Gold for 2 Toadstools, use Master Notes in the Cauldron, and then collect the Potion immediately for 62 Gold. So let’s put the value of Brain Elixirs at 94 Gold.

Thus 4 Brain Elixirs are worth 376 Gold.

A single Tonic for Trace Detection in Diagon Alley costs 60 Gold. However, you can also buy 4 for 220 Gold, so the individual value is 55 Gold.

Thus 3 Tonics are worth 165 Gold.

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. So let’s put the value of Potent Exstimulo Potions at 71 Gold.

Thus 6 Potent Potions are worth 426 Gold.

Finally, the Spell Energy is worth 60 Gold.

The total value of the bundle is 1027 Gold, a savings of 227 Gold. That’s a better deal than most event bundles, especially with Unicorn Hair being as rare as it is (even in Portkeys).

Finally, the Bonus Assignment Bundle! For 2100 Gold, you get:

  • 12 Strong Exstimulo Potions
  • 10 Potent Exstimulo Potions
  • 6 Tonics for Trace Detection
  • 5 Silver Keys
  • 150 Spell Energy

Because the Ingredients needed to brew regular or Strong Exstimulo Potions are fairly common, it is typically not a good value to purchase them in Diagon Alley. For those who want to know the math, it’s 3 Gold each per Snowdrop, Bitterroot, and Re’em Blood, plus 12 Gold for Abraxan Hair, so 36 Gold per Strong Exstimulo Potion.

Thus 10 Strong Exstimulo Potions are worth 432 Gold.

10 Potent Potions are worth 710 Gold.

5 Silver Keys cost 415 Gold.

6 Tonics are worth 330 Gold.

Before Spell Energy, this bundle is worth 1887 Gold, not quite the price tag. However, if you’re a rural player with limited resources at home, this bundle might help you replenish your Potions and Spell Energy.

I wish they would stop having masterful casts as an event task. I rarely get a masterful anything, but to make it a brand new spell you have to cast masterfully three times? That’s ridiculous. At least it’s on the bonus tasks. I definitely won’t be able to do that.

Wingardium Leviosa is probably the easiest spell to master.

Good news! It appears that you do NOT have to cast masterful Wingardium Leviosa. I got to the bonus tasks, cast three spells (I don’t think they were masterful and they definitely were not Wingardium Leviosa) and that task marked itself as complete.

It is frustrating with Masterful casts but I learned to skip the tricks and just keep trying as fast as you can! I had 50 ish in two years but in the last few months I’m almost at 100 of them! Try practicing the motion after you cast once and it’s processing or take a screenshot to practice!

Weird. I got one wingardium leviosa masterful and then managed two aguamente masterfuls on the baby dragons. Research showed as completed. I’ll take it! I hate trying to get masterfuls.

It appears that either any three masterful spells, or perhaps any three masterful spells cast for event traces (not sure which), will count for the bonus task. Mine were three auguamentis for the baby dragon.
