Witches and Wizards, this is not a drill! Harry Potter: Wizards Unite is bringing back the Brilliant Event that has already been seen in the Beta. It’s about time that we get our hands on some Restricted Spell Books, globally this time! This Brilliant Event has been announced rather silently. No official Twitter posts have been posted as of the time of writing. Let’s dive in to some of the Brilliant Event details!
After fleeing from an unjust execution with the help of Harry Potter, Buckbeak went on the run with the fugitive Sirius Black. Following Black's death, Buckbeak - rechristened 'Witherwings' to avoid further prosecution - rejoined the Hippogriff herd at Hogwarts.

Small, magical lizards that are born from fire, Salamanders may appear red or blue depending on the temperature of the flames. They are capable of living outside of their fires for four to six hours, but will die instantly if their fire is extinguished.

Brilliant Scorched Tree Stump
This stump appears to be that of a yew tree, a species indigenous to England and Scotland. Its bark has been scorched by fire, perhaps by one of the many magical creatures that call the Forbidden Forest home.

Closely resembling a harmless tree stump, the Snargaluff plant is known to attack with grasping, thorny vines when provoked. Despite this effective method of self-defence Snargaluffs are cultivated for the pulsating green pods contained within their stumps. For safety reasons, it is recommended that any attempt to harvest a Snargaluff's pods be done in pairs.

Shy but powerfully magical creatures, Unicorns are swift-footed enough to outrun most predators. Their speed and agility are especially vital for those living in the notoriously dangerous Forbidden Forest.

Brilliant Young Acromantula
Acromantulas are giant, sentient spiders capable of human speech. Although they are native to the rainforests of Southeast Asia, rumours persist of a colony living deep within the Forbidden Forest of Hogwarts.

What is the Brilliant Event?
Brilliant Events are limited time events that feature Special Assignments, new Foundables, and a unique registry page that has shown itself in game globally. You will receive event rewards that are not obtainable by any other means. Among these rewards are the highly requested Restricted Spell Books. People from all around the world have been asking how to get their hands on these. This is the only way to do it!
When is the Brilliant Event?
This Brilliant Event is set to kick off on July 3rd, at 11:00am Pacific Time, 2:00pm Eastern Time. The good news is that this event is available globally for all locations that currently have Wizards Unite available. As of now, it does not officially state how long the event will run for.
What kind of tasks will be part of the Brilliant Event?
Going just purely based off of the previous event, you can expect to encounter tasks like:
- Collecting from Inns
- Returning higher level Foundables
- Picking up ingredients or Portmanteaus
- Unlocking Portkeys
- Returning Brilliant Foundables such as Unicorns
- Performing Great spellcasts
- Brewing Potions
- And walking a certain amount of Kilometers
This is only the second Brilliant Event to take place inside Harry Potter: Wizards Unite. The first event took place during the beta for New Zealand and Australia players. This event, again, will be a global event! If this event has the same run time as the previous Brilliant Event, then it’ll run for a whole week! Wands at the ready, fellow Witches and Wizards!
When more updates becomes available, such as infographics, run time updates, and other information becomes available, we will update this article accordingly. Feel free to keep checking back for up to the date information!
