Brilliant Event Tasks

Most of these tasks have appeared before, but they aren’t too tedious. Repetitive tasks might be boring, but at least players can complete them from home.

To prepare for the second set of tasks, do not visit the Brilliant Registry Page until you reach that step! Also, stop returning Brilliant Foundables once you reach 19 of either. Once you reach 20, you’re automatically taken to the Brilliant Registry Page, which you do not want.

To prepare for Step 4, do not PLACE any Images on the new Brilliant Registry page until you reach that step. This will allow you to place Images quickly. However, if Brilliant Traces are plentiful for you, you can choose to place the Images multiple times. This allows you to grind Brilliant Family XP and earn more Brilliant Runestones.

Triwizarding Secrets Quest 1/4

These tasks are pretty much standard at this point in Brilliant Events. Save a few Tonics for Trace Detection from Community Day to use on this step. Using them should make it easy to get those Brilliant Marauder’s Map Foundables you need to move on to Step 2!

Collect Ingredients or Portmanteaus 2 Times 2 Snowdrop
Use 2 Tonics for Trace Detection 2 Re’em Blood
Return 12 Brilliant Marauder’s Map Foundables 2 Strong Exstimulo Potions

1st Quest Rewards

  • 550 Wizarding XP
  • 2 Restricted Section Books
  • 50 Brilliant Family XP
  • 10 Spell Energy

Triwizarding Secrets Quest 2/4

To collect Brilliant Triwizarding Secrets Runestones, visit the Brilliant Registry Page. Each time you level up, you collect a Runestone. To collect 5 of these quickly, do NOT visit the Brilliant Registry Page until you reach this step.

To use Master Notes 6 times, it’s quickest to brew Exstimulo Potions or Healing Potions since they require less time to brew. You can also rent a Gold Cauldron to finish this task more quickly.

Return 20 Foundables 1 Dawdle Draught
Use Master Notes 6 times 4 Bitterroot
Collect 6 Brilliant Triwizarding Secrets Runestones 1 Dark Detector

2nd Quest Rewards

  • 750 Wizarding XP
  • 75 Brilliant Family XP
  • 3 Restricted Section Books
  • 10 Spell Energy

Triwizarding Secrets Quest 3/4

The third part of the tasks focuses more on Wizarding challenges. I like it when I can complete 2 parts of the Tasks simultaneously by doing a single thing! In this case, I can get the 5000 Wizarding XP from Challenges and Defeat 15 Foes simultaneously. And if you use your Baruffio’s Brain Elixir this can be achieved even more quickly. So drink up some Baruffio’s Brain Elixir and jump on a Knight Bus.

This task is easy to complete if you have unlocked Dark Chamber V and can find a group of others to join. If you need help finding people, XpectoGO usually does a Wednesday livestream for Fortresses, and Brita is doing a Thursday livestream for Fortresses this month.

Earn 5000 Wizarding XP from Wizarding Challenges 1 Silver Key
Defeat 15 Foes in Wizarding Challenges 4 Runespoor Eggs
Return 15 Brilliant Moaning Myrtle Foundables 3 Strong Exstimulo Potions

3rd Quest Rewards

  • 1250 Wizarding XP
  • 75 Brilliant Family XP
  • 5 Restricted Section Books
  • 10 Spell Energy

Triwizarding Secrets Quest 4/4

The first task is about gaining Wizarding XP from Traces. Once again, using Tonic for Trace Detection and Baruffio’s Brain Elixir together will make this task easier.

To successfully complete the next part of this quest, you need to place 5 Images on the Brilliant Triwizarding Secrets Registry Page. The easiest way to do this is to keep doing Wizarding Challenges with Brilliant Runestones to keep placing the Brilliant Golden Egg.

It’s possible you can also complete this task by placing Images on the Brilliant Great Hall Registry Page, but that’s not guaranteed.

You will potentially receive one Mysterious Note per Brilliant Foundable returned. What secrets will they reveal?!

Earn 7000 Wizarding XP from Traces 1 Spell Book
Place 5 Images on the Brilliant Triwizarding Secrets Registry Page 1 Spell Book
Collect 15 Mysterious Note pieces by returning Brilliant Traces 1 Spell Book

4th Quest Rewards

  • 5 Restricted Section Books
  • 50 Gold
  • 5 Defense Against the Dark Arts Books
  • 30 Spell Energy
  • 1 Brilliant Rainbow Bath Taps Registry Image

Triwizarding Secrets BONUS Assignment!

Hop aboard the Knight Bus and find some new friends to play with! You can find other witches and Wizards to play with by following the link to Discord below.

Once again, if you need help finding people, XpectoGO usually does a Wednesday livestream for Fortresses, and Brita is doing a Thursday livestream for Fortresses this month.

To return 45 Brilliant Foundables, use several Tonics for Trace Detection. I know it’s a grind, but at least the task isn’t difficult.

For using Exstimulo Potions in Wizarding Challenges, the regular ones are fine. You have to start the Potion in the Wizarding Challenge for it to count. The Potion can’t carry over from using it on a Trace.

HOWEVER, you can start the Potion in a Wizarding Challenge, and then allow it to carry over when you return to the Map. Then you can use it to return Foundables. If you’re a Professor, you can use Deterioration Hex on your Foes and let them knock themselves out. This goes fairly quickly in Ruins I. If you’re not a Professor, you can just back out of the Wizarding Challenge after starting the Exstimulo Potion. You lose a Brilliant Runestone, but you might prefer that instead of wasting an Exstimulo Potion.

The other option is to use Exstimulo Potions in the Forest Chambers when you’re battling a Foe you’re neutral or deficient against. You can also use Extimulo Potions near the end of a Wizarding Challenge if you’re running low on time or Spell Energy.

Casting 25 Great Spells is yet another repetitive task that can be a challenge for anyone with dexterity issues. My best advice is to use Tonic for Trace Detection and/or visit an area with a great deal of available Traces. Then prioritize any Traces with an easy spell, like Aguamenti or Meteolojinx Recanto.

If you’re worried about this task, do your best to hustle through the regular tasks. That gives you plenty of time to finish the Bonus Assignment by returning lots and lots of Foundables. You’re sure to cast 25 Great (or better) Spells if you just grind grind grind!

Complete 10 Wizarding Challenges with 3 or more teammates 2 Wit-Sharpening Potions
Return 45 Brilliant Foundables 1 Potent Exstimulo Potion
Defeat Highest Chamber Unlocked 1 Time 1 Silver Key
Use Any 10 Exstimulo Potions in Wizarding Challenges 1 Spell Book
Cast 25 Great (or better) Spells 10 Spell Energy

  • 100 Brilliant Family XP
  • 5 Defense Against the Dark Arts Books
  • 1 Brilliant Event Title
  • 20 Spell Energy
  • 5 Mermaid Stained Glass Brilliant Foundable Fragments

Tips to Complete the Brilliant Event

If this is your first Brilliant Event, these tips will help you complete the Brilliant Event before the time runs out. With careful planning, you can complete the Bonus Assignment as well!

  • As a reminder, Part 1 Portkeys will give you Part 1 Rewards anytime you open them, even if you wait to open them during Part 2. Brilliant Portkeys will glow purple on the Map. Be sure to pick up 5 Brilliant Portkeys during the Brilliant Event, even if you don’t open them all during the event.
  • If you are nervous about finding time to walk the Brilliant Portkeys, you can also earn the necessary Foundable Fragments by completing the Bonus Assignment.
  • To find the Brilliant Golden Egg, you must do Wizarding Challenges with the specific Brilliant Event Runestones. To minimize your usage of Spell Energy, stick with the Ruins Chambers. It might take a few extra Wizarding Challenges to get the 3 Foundables you need, but you’ll be able to do so quickly, without expending too many resources.
  • If you decide to visit Inns, Fortresses, or Greenhouses during this event, continue to practice social distancing. Check out our previous article on staying safe while playing Wizards Unite.
  • Save your Scrolls and your Restricted Section Books until the end of the event. Then use our guide to spend them wisely! That said, most Aurors and Magizoologists have already earned all the necessary Restricted Section Books, and many Professors have also done so. At this point, you can invest your resources in Advanced Adversarial Combat, you can start working on a second profession, or you can invest in SOS Training. That is a personal decision, so good luck!

Brilliant Event Bundles

There are 4 bundles total that will be available during this event. Be sure to snag the Free Bundle as soon as the event starts! The Bonus Bundle will not be available until the Bonus Assignment is unlocked, so keep that in mind.

It looks like the Bonus Bundle *might* actually have value! I am always looking for ways to get Silver Keys, Baruffio’s Brain Elixir, and Potent Exstimulo Potions for cheap! Of course, sending and receiving those Gifts is a much easier way to acquire those items, so use your best judgment.

So, basically an exact copy of part 1, just different foundables. I must say, it’s getting quite boring. Am I the only one that has that feeling?
