October’s on Fire in Wizards Unite!

Infographic with October 2021 calendar for Wizards Unite

October 2021 will be full of fire in Harry Potter: Wizards Unite! From Brilliant Events to Community Day to a 1920s Wizarding World Convergence, exciting times are ahead for witches and wizards everywhere!

Harry, Hermione, and Constance decide to prioritise ending the Calamity in an effort to cut off The Unforgivable’s resources. Working off of Gareth Greengrass’s theory that only Grim Fawley himself can end the Calamity, the team decides to devote themselves to finding the missing wizard and his equally missing wife, Penelope. But does the secretive Grim even want to be found?


Later, as The Unforgiveable unleash their most lethal threat yet, Hermione attempts to uncover the true identity of “Theus,” The Unforgivable’s mysterious leader. What will the clues Gareth left behind and Hermione’s own research reveal?

Have I missed an update for events after 10/22? I’m guessing we get some sort of Adversary event this weekend or next week, followed by something for Halloween the last weekend of October and part 2 of current Brilliant event from 11/1-11/5.

I just updated the calendar last night, hours after your comment. I previously wasn’t at liberty to discuss the updated calendar. The Brilliant Event has been extended through Monday. Then we will have a Spotlight Event, followed by a Horcrux event for Halloween.
