New Year, New Events in Wizards Unite!

Happy New Year, witches and wizards! I hope all of you enjoyed the holidays. Did you finish 12 Tasks of Christmas? I finally managed my last few tasks earlier today.

A new month (and a new year!) means a new schedule of events in Harry Potter: Wizards Unite! January will even have a special event in honor of Snape’s birthday. Five total events will definitely keep Wizards Unite players busy all month long!


You can learn more about the upcoming Wizards Unite events in my video. Everything is also summarized down below.

A few things to note. The January Adversaries Event will begin immediately after the first Brilliant Event. It’s a weekday event this month, not a weekend event.

Also, the timing for the Adversaries Event changed. It will be just 48 hours, so it no longer overlaps with Community Day.

There’s also a chance of another Spotlight Event like the recent ones, but for now there’s not one on the calendar. Snape’s Birthday is quite similar to Spotlight Events, so that might be the alternative for January. If there’s a last-minute addition to the January event calendar, I will update this post.

I know I’m excited for another Adversaries Event. I didn’t complete the task to collect Wit-Sharpening Gifts last time, but I know the HPWU devs will respond to the feedback from that. Which event are you excited to play this month?

I encourage you to share you feedback in the WizHub Discord, or you can tweet at us, so we can pass this on to the official HPWU team for scheduling future events.

Connect with me and the rest of the WizHub team here in the comments or on our social media platforms. I read all comments, even if I don’t respond to all of them.
