Adversaries Event Tasks and Rewards

Our very first Adversaries Event comes with its own special tasks and rewards. I hope that these tasks will all be easy to complete over the 72-hour event.

Don’t worry about the Edible Dark Mark task. The free store pack includes one, so you will not need to purchase one.

How to Prepare for December’s Adversaries Event

If you have not yet completed a Lesson Plan for a Profession, spend your Resources to progress. You want at least one Profession to be as far along as possible. If necessary, grind Wizarding Challenges this week to collect more Spell Books.

Start brewing Healing Potions! You will need many of these to complete your Adversary Encounters.

Start collecting Ingredients for Exstimulo Potions and Wit-Sharpening Potions. You’ll want a good stockpile of these to take advantage of the reduced brewing time with Master Notes.

Fill up on Spell Energy! I’ve done a few Adversary Encounters so far, and they used up a large quantity of Spell Energy.

Adversaries Event Bundles

Like all Wizards Unite events, the December Adversaries Event will feature store bundles. The free store pack includes an Edible Dark Mark!

December Adversaries Event bundles. Find details in article.

The free store pack includes:

  • 1 Edible Dark Mark
  • 2 Healing Potions
  • 1 Exstimulo Potion
  • 30 Spell Energy

The Arresto Adversary Bundle includes:

  • 3 Edible Dark Marks
  • 125 Spell Energy

Is this bundle a good deal?

You can buy 5 Edible Dark Marks for 1200 Gold, making the individual value 240 Gold. Thus the value of 3 Edible Dark Marks is 720 Gold. If you only want discounted Edible Dark Marks, this bundle is not a good value. If you want discounted Spell Energy, then the bundle is a decent deal.

The Adversary Vanquisher Trunk includes:

  • 5 Edible Dark Marks
  • 125 Spell Energy
  • 10 Potent Exstimulo Potions
  • 5 Wit-Sharpening Potions
  • 5 Healing Potions

5 Edible Dark Marks cost 1200 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.

10 Potent Potions is worth 710 Gold.

Wit-Sharpening Potions and Healing Potions all have common Ingredients, so players shouldn’t spend money on them.

The value of this bundle before Spell Energy is 1910 Gold. If you don’t need Spell Energy, then this bundle is not a good deal.

Final Adversaries Event Notes

Playing outside? Be sure to carry an extra battery pack or two, plus charging cables. Need a new battery pack? I’ve put together a list of the top-rated options on Amazon!

Pay attention to your Potions queue. You don’t want it to be filled with Potions with long brewing times, other than Potent Exstimulo Potion.

I hope this Wizards Unite Adversaries Event guide has been helpful! Let me know if there’s anything else you’d like to see in future guides.
