How to Prepare for the Brilliant Event

Most Wizards Unite events will be easier in general if you work on your SOS Training. Unlock as many of these nodes as you can!

With a stronger Baruffio’s Brain Elixir, you can earn Wizarding XP more quickly.

With reduced brewing times for Exstimulo Potions and Healing Potions, you can do Master Notes on Potions more quickly.

With more Traces revealed by Tonic for Trace Detection, you can more quickly find Brilliant Traces (and Self-Playing Harps) to complete tasks.

Brilliant Event Tasks

To complete the first set of tasks quickly, make sure you brew 3 Potions in advance of the event that you can collect when the event is active. If you can, have a regular Exstimulo or Healing Potion queued up next since they will take the shortest time to brew in the second set of tasks. Alternatively, you could rent a second Cauldron to enable you to use Master Notes more often.

To do the second quest more quickly, do not visit the Brilliant Registry page until you’ve completed your first set of tasks. Additionally, stop returning Brilliant Foundables if you reach 19 of either. Once you reach 20, you’re automatically taken to the Brilliant Registry Page, which you do not want. If you forget, you can force close the app to avoid collecting any Brilliant Runestones.

To do the fourth set of tasks quickly, do not place any Brilliant Images until you reach that quest. Of course, if you have plentiful access to Brilliant Traces, but the other tasks are slowing you down, you might choose to place the Brilliant Images multiple times. Just realize this could mean you don’t complete the Bonus Assignment very quickly.

The third quest and bonus assignment will require you to use Potions to help you complete them in the shortest amount of time possible. Make sure you have what you need in your Vault or brew it in advance of the event (perhaps as some of the 3 you need to brew for the first quest).

The Unforgivable Truth Quest 1/4

Collecting Ingredients, Portmanteaus, Spell Energy, or Seeds is pretty straightforward.

Collect your 3 Potions (hopefully brewed in advance).

Use a Tonic for Trace Detection to find enough Brilliant Traces.

Collect 3 Ingredients or Portmanteaus on the Map 2 Re’em Blood
Brew 3 Potions 2 Abraxan Hair
Return 12 Brilliant Three-Headed Dog Foundables 1 Wit-Sharpening Potion

1st Quest Rewards

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

The Unforgivable Truth Quest 2/4

Use a Trace Charm on the first Self-Playing Harp you find, to produce additional ones to help you complete that task. You could certainly use a Tonic for Trace Detection too, if you prefer doing that.

Master Notes will slow you down some, even if you rent a second cauldron. You may need to use that time to return more Brilliant Foundables to get you to 6 Brilliant Runestones.

Return 3 Self-Playing Harp Foundables 1 Unicorn Hair
Use Master Notes 5 Times 6 Bitterroot
Collect 6 Brilliant Unforgivable Truth Runestones 6 Snowdrop

2nd Quest Rewards

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

The Unforgivable Truth Quest 3/4

As with the first set of tasks, use a Tonic for Trace Detection to boost the Traces you need and to give you many chances to cast spells. Or, if you’re able to visit an Inn and put some Dark Detectors on it, that will bring more Traces your way too.

Hop on the Knight Bus. Ruins V to Tower II usually give you 3-4 Foes, so you can knock those out fairly quickly.

Return 12 Brilliant Philosopher’s Stone Foundables 1 Silver Key
Cast 15 Great Spells (or Masterful) 6 Snowdrop
Defeat 15 Foes in Wizarding Challenges 2 Strong Exstimulo Potions

3rd Quest Rewards

  • 5 Restricted Section Books
  • 10 Spell Energy

The Unforgivable Truth Quest 4/4

Drink a Baruffio’s Brain Elixir to earn Wizarding XP more quickly, and then climb aboard the Knight Bus.

You may possibly want to drink another Tonic for Trace Detection to find Brilliant Traces.

Use your Unforgivable Truth Runestones in your Wizarding Challenges to give you a chance of placing the Brilliant Wizard Chess Knight multiple times.

Place 5 Brilliant Unforgivable Truth Registry Images 1 Spell Book
Earn 7500 Wizarding XP from Challenges 1 Spell Book

  • 1 Brilliant Broken-Winged Flying Key Registry Image

The Unforgivable Truth BONUS Assignment!

Returning 45 Brilliant Unforgivable Truth Foundables is a simple grind, honestly. You should find enough Self-Playing Harp Foundables along the way, with the help of the Tonic for Trace Detection and/or Trace Charms.

To earn 12,500 Wizarding XP quickly, once again, drink a Brain Elixir. Use your Trace Charm on every red beam (Severe and Emergency Traces). If you can visit an Inn safely, stack Dark Detectors to attract a greater amount of high-threat Traces. Wait until you’re on the Bonus Assignment to open 20 Gifts, prioritizing any Extravagant Gifts and others with high Wizarding XP. Honestly, I can get the 12,500 Wizarding XP with a Brain Elixir and just a handful of Extravagant Gifts.

Remember, Formidable Foes have 2 stars. You can find these fairly easy in Ruins IV to Tower III.

Brilliant Foundables and Where to Find Them

Just like previous Brilliant Events, you will only be able to encounter some of these Brilliant Foundables in the wild. The others are available as rewards for doing Wizarding Challenges with Brilliant Runestones and unlocking Brilliant Portkeys.

If you complete the Bonus Assignment, you do NOT need to unlock any Brilliant Portkeys.

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!

  • If you are below level 20 in Wizards Unite, you might want to use Exstimulo Potions on the Brilliant Foundables. Otherwise they will use a lot of Spell Energy to return, because they resist. The Brilliant Three-Headed Dog will be an Oddity, so he will not resist.
  • 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 Wizard Chess Knight, you must do Wizarding Challenges with the specific Brilliant Event Runestones. It’s easiest to do this during Quest 3 or 4 since those already require Wizarding Challenges. To minimize your usage of Spell Energy, stick with Ruins IV-V Chambers. It might take a few extra Wizarding Challenges to get the 3 Fragments you need, but you’ll be able to do so quickly, without expending too many resources. If you’re low on Runestones, try Tower I-II Chambers to improve your odds of earning the required Fragments.
  • 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.

First up, the SOS Bundle! Unlike most recent Brilliant Events, this time you’ll get 5 Silver Keys and 125 Spell Energy for 450 Gold.

You can buy 10 Silver Keys for 720 Gold, making the individual value of each Silver Key 72 Gold. 5 Silver Keys are thus worth 360 Gold. If you only need Silver Keys, the SOS Bundle is not a good value.

125 Spell Energy is worth 250 Gold, bringing the bundle value up to 620 Gold, a savings of 170 Gold. This bundle is only valuable if you need discounted Spell Energy or live in an area where it’s not readily available on the Map.

Next up, the Brilliant Bundle! For 800 Gold, you get:

  • 4 Baruffio’s Brain Elixirs
  • 6 Potent Exstimulo Potions
  • 3 Tonics for Trace Detection
  • 30 Spell Energy

A single Baruffio’s Brain Elixir costs 100 Gold in Diagon Alley. However, if you just need to buy the rare Ingredients, it’s a better deal to spend 20 Gold for 1 Dragon Claw and 12 Gold for 2 Toadstools, use Master Notes in the Cauldron, and then collect the Potion immediately for 62 Gold. So let’s put the value of Brain Elixirs at 94 Gold.

Thus 4 Brain Elixirs are worth 376 Gold.

A single Tonic for Trace Detection in Diagon Alley costs 60 Gold. However, you can also buy 4 for 220 Gold, so the individual value is 55 Gold.

Thus 3 Tonics are worth 165 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.

Thus 6 Potent Potions are worth 426 Gold.

Finally, the Spell Energy is worth 60 Gold.

The total value of the bundle is 1027 Gold, a savings of 227 Gold. That’s a better deal than most event bundles, especially with Unicorn Hair being as rare as it is (even in Portkeys).

Finally, the Bonus Assignment Bundle! For 2100 Gold, you get:

  • 12 Strong Exstimulo Potions
  • 10 Potent Exstimulo Potions
  • 6 Tonics for Trace Detection
  • 5 Silver Keys
  • 150 Spell Energy

Because the Ingredients needed to brew regular or Strong Exstimulo Potions are fairly common, it is typically not a good value to purchase them in Diagon Alley. For those who want to know the math, it’s 3 Gold each per Snowdrop, Bitterroot, and Re’em Blood, plus 12 Gold for Abraxan Hair, so 36 Gold per Strong Exstimulo Potion.

Thus 10 Strong Exstimulo Potions are worth 432 Gold.

10 Potent Potions are worth 710 Gold.

5 Silver Keys cost 415 Gold.

6 Tonics are worth 330 Gold.

Before Spell Energy, this bundle is worth 1887 Gold, not quite the price tag. However, if you’re a rural player with limited resources at home, this bundle might help you replenish your Potions and Spell Energy.
