Spotlight Events Coming to Wizards Unite!

Infographic explaining first two Spotlight Events in Wizards Unite. Blog post shares the same information.

Harry Potter: Wizards Unite is experimenting with a new type of event: Spotlight Events! Players of Pokémon GO might be familiar with the general concept, but Spotlight Events are new to Wizards Unite. Plus, they have a magical twist!

Note: Thank you Niantic and WB Games for providing this information early so Wizards Unite Hub could create this event guide. 


You can find a full overview of both Spotlight Events in my video.

Tonic for Trace Detection Spotlight Event

A Tonic for Trace Detection Spotlight Event is a brief, 7-hour event in your local time. During this period, certain Foundables will be boosted only when using Tonic for Trace Detection.

The first Tonic for Trace Detection Spotlight Event will be Wednesday, November 25, 2020 from 11am to 6pm in your local time. The boosted Foundables will be:

  • Dumbledore’s Portrait
  • Monster Book of Monsters
  • Niffler
  • Omnioculars

These Foundables should be roughly half of the Traces revealed by your Tonic for Trace Detection.

This is a great opportunity to collect uncommon Foundables to prestige a page. If you already have a gold frame, you can grind Ministry Manuals by repeatedly placing these Images in the Registry.

Knight Bus Spotlight Event

A Knight Bus Spotlight Event is a brief, 7-hour event in your local time. During this period, you can earn guaranteed Foundable fragments by winning Wizarding Challenges in certain Chambers.

The first Knight Bus Spotlight Event will be Thursday, November 26, 2020 from 11am to 6pm in your local time. The guaranteed Foundable fragments will be:

  • Thunderbird from Tower Chamber V
  • Puffskeins from Forest Chamber V
  • Portrait of the Wild Boar from Dark Chamber V

That’s not all…

These Foundable fragments are guaranteed regardless of the Runestone used. This is an incredible opportunity to use up old Brilliant Runestones!

I love it! Anything different is exciting for me. Good opportunity to possibly get a bunch of Care of Magical Creatures fragments before Wizarding Weekend too. I just don’t like the timing. I have to work Wed. and Thurs. is a U.S. holiday.

Collect the puffskeins, don’t place the image until Wizarding Weekend.Placing the puffskein image should complete the “Earn 1200 Care of Magical Creatures Family XP” task on Wizarding Weekend

Incredibly stupid timing given the vast majority of the time is when adults will be working trying to earn money to pay for things like food. Please don’t be like pokemon go where there is never even a days break between events and most usually overlap. There is no need for these spotlight events.

Am I the only one that doesn’t receive his Portrait of the Wild Bear from the Dark Chamber V? I’m receiving the Fire Crab which I certainly don’t need anymore… Nice idea but it must work!

I like that these are tests and helped focus on some items. I did one trace but not more as to be prepared for the weekend event. I didn’t do anything for the fortress day as I didn’t want to go those high of chambers and to save energy for the weekend. I’m still feeling too much is going on. I’m not sure to say these are contributing to it, as we could skip these without missing anything.
