Harry Potter: Wizards Unite continues to experiment with fun events. This Saturday will feature an all-new, casual event in Wizards Unite, centered around the Potions Master Severus Snape in honor of his birthday.

Thank you Niantic and WB Games for providing early access to Harry Potter: Wizards Unite information for this article.


Snape’s Birthday Event Overview

This will be an all-day event on Saturday, January 9th in your local time. I’ve put together a brief video covering the details, which you can also read below.

Wizards Unite Snape’s Birthday Event Details
Date Saturday, January 9, 2021
  • 12:01am to 11:59pm in your local time!!!
  • Tonic for Trace Detection will reveal more of Severus Snape, Pensieve, and Young Neville Longbottom (Snape Boggart Confoundable) Foundables.
  • Guaranteed Exploration Foundables when doing Wizarding Challenges in the following Chambers:
    • Tower Chamber V will reward Sword of Gryffindor
    • Forest Chamber V will reward Half-Blood Prince’s Copy of Advanced Potion Making
    • Dark Chamber V will reward Hogwarts House Cup

This event is similar to Spotlight Events. One, the boosted Foundables are only when using Tonic for Trace Detection. Other Foundables on the Map will remain the same. Two, the Fortress rewards are guaranteed regardless of Runestone used.

This means you can use up old Brilliant Runestones to get Exploration Foundables!

Snape’s Birthday is a fairly casual event, with no task list or rewards. As such, there isn’t much you need to do to prepare.

However, depending on your current progress with the Potions Classroom, you do have the opportunity to prestige the page. Start checking all Legends of Hogwarts Foundables for Hedwig and Sirius Black. Hopefully you already have enough of Young Harry Potter after 12 Tasks of Christmas. If not, he is still boosted for another 24 hours.

Depending on your current progress with Dumbledore’s Office, you also have the opportunity to prestige that page. Start checking all Mysterious Artefacts Foundables for the Mirror of Erised, Dumbledore’s Memory Cabinet, and the Philosopher’s Stone.

Personally, I already have a gold frame for Dumbledore’s Office, so I’m excited to place the Pensieve and Gryffindor’s Sword. The Pensieve will be a great opportunity to earn Ministry Manuals.

As necessary, brew Tonic for Trace Detection so you have plenty to use on Saturday.

I’m always interested to hear your thoughts! Are you excited for this event? Connect with me and the rest of the WizHub team here in the comments or on our social media platforms.
