Adversaries Event Tasks and Rewards

Tasks continue to be fairly similar to the most recent Adversaries Events. Rewards are also fairly similar, although players now have to complete more difficult tasks for fewer or similar rewards.

For example, players have to use 10 Exstimulo Potions instead of 7, for the same 20 Spell Energy. Players still need to defeat 35 Foes in Wizarding Challenges, but the reward is only a single Potion, instead of 2 Strong Exstimulo Potions.

Finally, these event tasks still cannot be completed entirely from home if you don’t have any game activity at your house. You only get 1 free Edible Dark Mark in the store pack. None of the individual rewards contain an Edible Dark Mark. I only hope that players can either move freely to parks and other locations, or you might have some Edible Dark Marks stockpiled from past events.

Quest Step Reward
Defeat 35 Foes in Wizarding Challenges 1 Strong Exstimulo Potion
Use Master Notes 8 times 1 Silver Key
Earn 1500 Challenge XP through Wizarding Challenges and/or Adversary Chains 6 Snowdrop
Use 10 Exstimulo Potions (any) against Adversaries 20 Spell Energy
Return 20 Artefact Fragments from Peter Pettigrew and/or Ukrainian Ironbelly Chains 2 Potent Exstimulo Potions
Deal 30,000 Damage to Adversaries 1 DADA Book
Defeat Peter Pettigrew 3 Times 1 DADA Book
Defeat Ancient Ukrainian Ironbelly 3 times 1 DADA Book

Overall rewards:

  • 5 Defense Against the Dark Arts Books
  • 500 Wizarding XP
  • 60 Gold
  • 30 Spell Energy

How to Prepare for March’s Adversaries Event

I know I keep repeating myself, but the best strategies remain the same. Here’s a simplified look at tips to prepare for the Adversaries Event.

First, finish a Profession Lesson Plan. Put resources into a single Profession before you work on a second.

Next, work through the nodes in the Advanced Adversarial Combat for your completed Profession. The Precision nodes (on the right) increase your chances of getting a Critical Hit (inflicting more Damage). The Dodge nodes (on the left) increase your chances of dodging (taking no Damage).

I recommend unlocking the initial 4 Precision nodes and then the initial 4 Dodge nodes. You will see results with Critical Hits quickly.

Finally, bolster your Potions through SOS Training. This chart indicates the different nodes and their locations to improve your Potions.

Location Node Effect
CE I,5 Engarde! Exstimulo Potion Potency Increase
CE I,9 Brunch or Linner? Exstimulo Potion Potency Increase
CE II,22 Was Mundungus Here? Exstimulo Potion Potency Increase
CE I,12 Awesome Blossom Exstimulo Potion Duration Increase
CE I,8 Twisting Spleens Healing Potion Potency Increase
CE I,9 Name in the Paper! Healing Potion Potency Increase
CE II,15 Muggle Medicines Healing Potion Potency Increase
CE I,8 Hand in Hand Strong Exstimulo Potion Potency Increase
CE II,17 St. Mungos Strong Exstimulo Potion Potency Increase
CE II,28 Ebb and Neap Strong Exstimulo Potion Potency Increase
CE I,20 Ice Cream Social Strong Exstimulo Potion Duration Increase
CE I,12 Volunteer Work Potent Exstimulo Potion Potency Increase
CE II,32 Light My Fire Potent Exstimulo Potion Potency Increase
CE III,38 Tempermental Cauldrons Potent Exstimulo Potion Potency Increase
CE III,42 Wasted on the Old Potent Exstimulo Potion Duration Increase
CE II,22 Whetstone for the Mind Wit-Sharpening Potion Potency Increase
CD II,32 Recipe Recitation Wit-Sharpening Potion Potency Increase
CE II,40 I’ll Be the Knight Wit-Sharpening Potion Potency Increase
CE II,32 Wit Beyond Leisure Wit-Sharpening Potion Duration Increase

Start brewing Healing Potions, Exstimulo Potions, and Wit-Sharpening Potions.

Start collecting extra 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!

Open up your maximum Gifts each day, prioritizing Gifts that give you the aforementioned resources.

If you have extra Gold available, purchase Vault Extensions. The ability to hold more Spell Energy, Ingredients, and Potions will help you prepare for resource-intense events like this one.

The Problem for Rural Players at Home

Players only get a single Edible Dark Mark in the free store pack. Task rewards do not include an additional Edible Dark Mark.

If you are playing at home, and you don’t get Adversaries on the Map, you cannot complete this event. Not even close.

Tasks require you to complete 3 Peter Pettigrew Adversary chains AND 3 Ancient Ukrainian Ironbelly Adversary chains. You only get 3 Adversaries from 1 Edible Dark Mark.

If you can safely leave your home to play, try playing in a big store parking lot from your car. You can also walk around a park–the outdoors makes it easier to stay 6 feet away from other people.

Tips to Enjoy the Adversaries Event

This advice assumes you get Traces at your home, or you’re able to visit an area with Wizards Unite activity on the Map. Please stay safe, no matter what you do.

To place all of the Images on the Adversary pages, you need fewer of the final Adversary than you do of the Artefacts. This is true of all Feared Adversaries, including Pettigrew and the dragons.

If you are low on Spell Energy and/or Potions, you can work to prestige your Registry pages while still conserving resources. Once you have placed Pettigrew, and you have returned him enough times to place again, back out from future Adversary chains after you defeat the Guards. You will still receive Artefact Fragments by defeating the Guards.

Follow the same strategy for the Ukrainian Ironbelly.

However, this strategy does mean you earn less DADA Books. It’s up to you if you want to prioritize grinding DADA Books or prestiging pages.

If you really want to grind DADA Books, your best strategy involves going to an area with multiple POIs in the game. Plant Snowdrop or Wormwood at a Greenhouse. Walk from Inn to Inn if available, or sit by an Inn if you just have one. Replenish your Spell Energy between Adversary Encounters. Use an EDM for 3 additional Adversaries every 30 minutes.

Also keep a close eye on your Potions so you can collect new ones immediately and use Master Notes on the next one. Keep brewing Potions constantly.

Adversaries Event Bundles

Like all Wizards Unite events, this Adversaries Event will feature store bundles. The free store pack includes an Edible Dark Mark! Both paid bundles have been offered before.

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, AND you can earn them through Gifts, 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. However, this bundle could be worth it for rural players who really need the Potions and the Spell Energy.
