Magical Mischief: A Myriad of Marauders!

12

This Harry Potter: Wizards Unite guide is focused on the one-off event called Magical Mischief, which will focus on one of my favorite groups of students at Hogwarts: the Marauders!

I have also included a video guide from my YouTube channel in case you are unable to read through all the tasks, or if you prefer video format!

Note that since filming/uploading my video, one task did change. The correct tasks are below, and I’ve also updated my video description with the updated task.

Edit 03/27/2020: To make this event even more fun at home, the HPWU devs have added additional bonuses! Editor-in-chief Brita did a livestream going over these changes, which have also been updated down below.

Magical Mischief Event Tasks

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

Fortunately these tasks are 100% risk-free, in that you should be able to complete them from the comfort of your home. There is, however, a new mechanic being introduced that should really make things interesting!

Due to the mysterious, mischievous magic we know as The Calamity, Tonic for Trace Detection is acting up! Specific, quest-only Foundables are boosted during certain parts of the quest (outlined below). However, Tonic for Trace Detection is not the only item on the fritz!

Ministry reports are rolling in that Landmarks, or the areas that have been discovered to house certain Foundable Families, are constantly changing as the search for Foundables continues. Please review the field notes below so you can be prepared to fight back against forces we are still attempting to define!

Thank you for creating an event that doesn’t require or entice us to break the law to complete it. Please continue this trend until the pandemic is over.

Appreciate the HPWU team could consider having the 5 great throws without “in a row’ ? I almost chew out all my nails the last round in the quest on 3 great throws in a row. 🙁 Many thanks to the team for making it possible for us to complete the quests staying indoors. Cheers HPWU team. 🙂

5 great casts in a row is impossible. I normally cast good & great all the time. Since this event started, I am only registering a few goods and mostly fair casts. I have exhausted almost every potion in my vault trying for just 1 great cast. Really disappointed in this development. I normally finish all the events and this likely to be the first one I fail.

We really need ingredients outside of of trace potion ones on the map please. Those of us in shelter-in-place locations can’t drive to a greenhouse. I RARELY see estimulo ingredients and it’s not ideal.

So I have been using tonic for trace detection While on quest 3/4 looking for my last swooping evil. Can anyone confirm this is in the tonic for trace detection?
Thanks

Ugh. I hate “pick up off the map” tasks. I’m stuck at home and map spawns happen maybe once a day on average the area I can reach from my house. I have to pray I’m logged in.

Also, anyone else notice that ONLY marauder’s maps were spawning even after you finished part 1?

So sorry, but 5 Greats in a row is just ridiculous. I‘m stuck with 2 quests fullfilled at level 3 and don’t think i‘ll make it. Moreover, there‘s so much crap on the map, i ran out of energy in almost no time. I‘ll be back for the weekend, cu! Meanwhile let‘s see what Niantic offers to the PoGo couch players, they‘ve announced interesting features!

Worth mentioning that the “After completing this step: Tonic for Trace Detection will ONLY generate Traces for the following Foundables....” element in Quests 1-3 only seems to apply to NEWLY DRUNK tonics after you’ve completed all of a quests steps.

If you complete a quest’s steps with a tonic still in action the previous quests traces continue to be brought up by the tonic, as well as some of the next quests ones. Unless that’s just me?

Think a coding error in Task 2 created Sirius Black but not Posters of Sirius Black. Have found zero but completed everything else. Won’t bother continuing.

In 24 hours I have not seen a single wanted poster Sirius black. I can’t move on from the second page of it never spawns here. I have gotten a ton of Sirius with a dementor. Is there a bug? Yes, I have been using the tonic for travel detection. Constantly.
