The February 2021 Community Day in Harry Potter: Wizards Unite is centered around the Room of Requirement III page in the Mysterious Artefacts Registry. This is very similar to recent Wizards Unite Community Days with boosted Foundables from a single Registry page.
Once again, this will be an all-day event that can be played from home. Stay safe, witches and wizards!

February 2021 Community Day Tasks
Like all recent Community Day events, this event includes a special set of tasks and rewards. These tasks should be incredibly doable, especially considering you have a FULL day to get them all done.
HOWEVER, if you need a break from Wizards Unite, this is a good event to skip. Long-term players have most likely already prestiged the Room of Requirement III to Gold, so it’s not a big deal if you don’t get those boosted Foundables.
That said, returning Hermione’s Time-Turner multiple times will help you grind Family XP quickly, giving you more opportunities to earn Field Charm charges and Gold Gifts (if you’ve unlocked Preferred Client). Plus the task rewards include some Potions you might have depleted during the Adversaries Event.
|Use Master Notes 4 Times||1 Silver Key|
|Return 15 Omnioculars Foundables||6 Snowdrop|
|Return 8 Hermione’s Time-Turner Foundables||2 Strong Exstimulo Potions|
|Defeat 20 Foes in Wizarding Challenges||2 Healing Potions|
|Collect 7 Sirius’ Flying Motorbike Fragments by using Mysterious Artefacts Runestones||2 Potent Exstimulo Potions|
|Place 2 Images in the Mysterious Artefacts Family Registry||4 Unicorn Hair|
- 3 Defense Against the Dark Arts Books
- 3 Spell Books
- 40 Gold
- 200 Wizarding XP
- 20 Spell Energy
Preparing for Wizards Unite Community Day
February’s Community Day is extremely similar to recent Wizards Unite Community Days, just focused on a different Foundable Family. Players have incentives to return Foundables AND to complete Wizarding Challenges AND to unlock Portkeys! Here are a few tips to prepare over the next few days.
Do your best to open Portkeys before Community Day starts so you have room to pick up 1km Portkeys. These will contain Cursed Opal Necklace Fragments, so you want to collect as many as you can!
If you can safely and legally walk around a park or your neighborhood, that’s a great option to unlock Portkeys.
Stock up on Ingredients for Tonic for Trace Detection! With the reduced brewing time, this is an opportunity to rebuild your Potions supplies.
These are all the Ingredients you need for Tonic for Trace Detection.
|Baneberry||Bulbadox Juice||Angel’s Trumpet||Erumpent Horn|
While these Ingredients are still boosted under the “play at home” changes, I’m aware that many players don’t have any Ingredients at home.
If you can safely stop somewhere with a lot of Wizards Unite activity, do so on the way to the grocery store on your next trip.
You can also ask your friends to send you Ingredient Gifts and Tonic for Trace Detection Gifts.
To maximize your Tonic benefits, consider unlocking a few helpful nodes in your SOS Training. Each of these will allow your Tonic to reveal additional Traces.
- Stir Crazy (I, 7)
- Concentrated Concoction (II, 25)
- Trained For This (III, 38)
You should also consider brewing some Dawdle Draught. Hermione’s Time-Turner is an Emergency-threat Foundable, so you might want a few Dawdle Draughts on hand to return her!
These are the Ingredients you need for Dawdle Draught.
|Valerian Root||Sopophorous Bean||Butterscotch||Hermit Crab Shell|
Finally, try to stock up on Exstimulo Potions. These will also be handy for Hermione’s Time-Turner. I realize this will be a challenge, since most of us will use up our stock during the Adversaries Event.
This quick chart shows which Ingredients you need for the entire Exstimulo family.
|Shared between all Exstimulo Potions||Bitter Root
|Additional Exstimulo Potion ingredient||Granian Hair|
|Additional Strong Exstimulo Potion ingredient||Abraxan Hair|
|Additional Potent Exstimulo Potion ingredient||Unicorn Hair|
If you still need Sirius’ Flying Motorbike and/or Cursed Opal Necklace Fragments, do Wizarding Challenges with a Mysterious Artefacts Runestone. While you will have the ability to earn these on Community Day, it will be easier to prestige the Room of Requirement III if you have some Runestones saved up in advance.

Return any Mysterious Artefacts Foundables you see on the Map. If any of these Images are ready to place in your Registry, STOP. Wait until the event begins. Then you can place the Image to quickly complete that task.
Tips for Enjoying February’s Community Day
This is another Wizards Unite Community Day that will be completely playable at home, but that doesn’t mean you can’t play with other people! Several WUtubers will do livestreams during the day.
You can also consider meeting up with a local community in an outdoor location. Everyone should wear masks, carry hand sanitizer, and avoid shaking hands or hugging. Check out our previous guide on playing Wizards Unite safely. If you can do this, I highly recommend coordinating Wizarding Challenges at a local Fortress, especially with the Knight Bus issues noted below.
A Note on the Knight Bus
If you’re taking the Knight Bus to do Wizarding Challenges, then keep in mind that the player who starts the Chamber determines whether or not the players can earn Community Day bonuses. This was true during previous Community Day events, but I know it’s a bit confusing.
Wizards Unite Community Day is based on local times. However, when taking the Knight Bus, you can randomly play with witches and wizards around the world. This means that if Community Day is NOT active in your timezone, but you enter a Chamber started by a player where Community Day is active, then you have the increased odds of earning a guaranteed Fragment in Forest IV and above. (You can also enjoy the other Community Day bonuses).
Once Community Day is active in your area, if you’re doing Wizarding Challenges in Forest IV or higher, then you should coordinate with friends to get the Community Day bonuses. Or you’ll want to start the Chamber yourself to guarantee access.
THAT SAID, recent events in local times, like Snape’s Birthday, have been extra-confusing in regards to the Knight Bus. Even with the starting player having the event active, not all players have received event rewards.
Repeat Image Collection
With RIC, you need to be strategic if you want to prestige the Room of Requirement III page multiple times. If you have already placed a Foundable in your Registry, as indicated by the green and white star, do NOT place it again! I know it’s hard to resist that enticing shimmer, but wait. After you have enough Fragments for all of the Room of Requirement III, you can prestige the page. Those extra Fragments on any Foundable marked by the green and white star will roll over to the next frame, making it easier to prestige the page again.
That said, if you still need many more Fragments to place the other Images on the page, you might want to go ahead and place the Image to earn the Family XP.
Community Day Bundles
In addition to the free store pack, you also have the option of buying special bundles. This graphic is courtesy of Orange Wizard.
SOS Bundle up first! This is identical to what we have seen for multiple Community Days past, so I’m using about the same logic. This bundle includes:
- 2 Tonics for Trace Detection
- 5 Silver Keys
- 50 Spell Energy
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. The value of 2 Tonics is thus 110 Gold. 50 Spell Energy costs 100 Gold. By breaking down the individual cost of Silver Keys in Diagon Alley, they are worth 72 Gold each, or 360 Gold for 5.
Thus, the value of the SOS Bundle is about 570 Gold if you want discounted Spell Energy, or 470 Gold if you don’t value Spell Energy. If you only need Silver Keys, the value is only about 360 Gold and not worth it.
What about the Community Day Bundle? This includes:
- 5 Level 4 Mysterious Artefacts Runestones
- 20 Spell Energy
- 4 Strong Exstimulo Potions
- 4 Potent Exstimulo Potions
Using the cost breakdown from Andolov, we can assume that 5 Level 4 Runestones are worth 50 Gold.
Strong Exstimulo Potions use common Ingredients. Players shouldn’t ever spend money on these Potions.
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 4 Potent Potions are worth 284 Gold.
Before the Spell Energy, this bundle is worth 420 Gold, not a good deal. Even with the Spell Energy, it’s not worth it.
Final Community Day Notes
Playing outside? Be sure to carry an extra battery pack or two, plus charging cables. Need a new battery pack? Brita’s put together a list of the top-rated options on Amazon!
Be sure to have an EMPTY Potions queue before Community Day starts (or you wake up) so that you can fill it up with Tonic for Trace Detection. Stack your queue at the end of the day to take advantage of reduced brewing time after Community Day.
