Harry Potter: Wizards Unite is changing up Brilliant Events… slightly. After the shortened March events, the April Brilliant Events will again be an entire week each. This time, they run Monday to Monday, instead of the typical Tuesday to Tuesday.

This article will cover A Weasley Predicament Brilliant Event Week 1. If you’ve been following the Wizards Unite storyline, I think this will be an exciting event!

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 to complete tasks.

Brilliant Event Tasks

To complete the first set of tasks quickly, brew 3 Potions in advance. Wait until the Brilliant Event begins to collect them.

To prepare for the third 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. If you forget, you can force close the app to avoid collecting any Brilliant Runestones.

If you want to place Images quickly in the Bonus Assignment, do not place any Images until you reach that step. You will earn less Brilliant Family XP by doing this, so let your own strategy determine your decision.

To collect Brilliant A Weasley Predicament 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.

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

Formidable Foes have 2 stars. You can find these in the Tower Chambers rather easily.

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.

Hop on the Knight Bus to find people for Dark Chambers.

Use multiple Tonics for Trace Detection to find enough Foundables that require the Ebublio spell.

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.
  • 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 Brilliant Arthur Weasley, you must do Wizarding Challenges with the specific Brilliant Event Runestones. This is an event task, so wait until that step to work on it. 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! This bundle keeps appearing in Brilliant Events: 5 Silver Keys and 100 Spell Energy for 450 Gold. I’m going to use the same math because it hasn’t changed either.

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.

100 Spell Energy costs 200 Gold, bringing the bundle value up to 560 Gold, a savings of 110 Gold. This bundle is only valuable if you need discounted Spell Energy (which you might after the Adversaries Event).

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

  • 5 Baruffio’s Brain Elixirs
  • 10 Exstimulo Potions
  • 5 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 5 Brain Elixirs are worth 470 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 5 Tonics are worth 275 Gold.

I don’t recommend paying for regular Exstimulo Potions. Overall, this is not a good deal, with a value of just 745 Gold.

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

  • 10 Strong Exstimulo Potions
  • 10 Potent Exstimulo Potions
  • 5 Wit-Sharpening Potions
  • 10 Silver Keys
  • 150 Spell Energy

Normally, I don’t advise buying Strong Exstimulo Potions or regular Exstimulo Potions because the Ingredients are fairly common. However, this Brilliant Event begins right after the Adversaries Event ends, so players will need to replenish their Potions.

Looking at just Ingredients, 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 Potions are worth 360 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 10 Potent Potions are worth 710 Gold.

10 Silver Keys cost 720 Gold.

I still don’t recommend spending Gold on Wit-Sharpening Potions. All of the Ingredients are common, AND unique to the Potion. (Players go through Ingredients for Exstimulo Potions quite quickly). Plus you can earn Wit-Sharpening Potions through Gifts.

Before Spell Energy, this bundle is worth 1790 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.

I don’t like the four steps. I wish it was like community day, where it was a list of tasks. I shouldn’t have to plan stuff so much. I shouldn’t have to work to not go in to the registry. I like the idea I saw another poster came up with, one of each event per month. one community day, one adversity, and one brilliant per month.

Brew three potions then use master notes five times? So brew 3 potions, then brew 5 potions. Exciting. Niantic must be running out of ideas.

I ALWAYS forget that the next Brilliant Event is happening, and then I ALWAYS claim my potions before the event starts, and then start a bunch of Potent Existmulos/BBEs/anything that takes hours to finish, and then the first task in the Brilliant Event is always “brew X potions” lol…

Yes, thank you for making this Brilliant Event be 7 days! And because it will last a week, I think the Quests are much more reasonable too. You still have us get Great Spell casts but we don’t have to get them “in-a-row” like the last week. So thank’s again for your hard work!!! ♿️🖤💛

I just used all 12 of my Weasley Runestones and got only 2 Arthur fragments.
Has that reward rate decreased? Because, wow.

They have re-enabled the mechanism that makes it difficult to perform the Great Ebublio Spells.They have little imagination.Level 60.I don’t see any point in playing any more.
