Real talk here, witches and wizards. March was a rough month for all of us, not just as players of Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, but as human beings.
I never thought I would need to write an article about staying healthy and safe while playing Wizards Unite… But last month, I did.
I never thought Niantic games, which encourage exploration, would need to be reworked to be playable completely from home. But right now, that’s the world in which we live.
I know Magical Mischief was a bit of a letdown, but the HPWU team has (hopefully) learned from their mistakes in designing all new events for April! After, there is a difference between changing events at the last-minute to accommodate a pandemic and creating brand-new events with a pandemic in mind.
As always, I’ve also covered April’s Wizards Unite events on my YouTube channel!
Otherwise, keep reading for a brief overview of everything happening in Wizards Unite this month!
April 2020 Wizards Unite Calendar
As expected, Wizards Unite will have another two-week Brilliant Event in April, as well as the first 24-hour Community Day. In addition, the month will end with a special event featuring a new Oddity!
I have already seen the tasks for the first Brilliant Event, and I can confirm that they are all doable from home.

What are your thoughts on the upcoming events? Are you excited for a 24-hour Community Day, completely playable from home?
Personally, I’m excited to progress with my Magizoology pages. I just need 15 more full-sized Nifflers to complete my gold frame of Newt’s Case. I also need 6 Picketts and 11 Murtlaps to prestige Central Park for the first time, so I’m hoping those will be reasonably easy to collect on Community Day.
I’m always interested to hear your thoughts! Connect with me and the rest of the WizHub team here in the comments or on our social media platforms.
