Adversaries Guide: Exterminating Peter Pettigrew

0

With the ongoing help of Plotter101 and his fellow researchers, we are continuing to put together Adversaries guides for players of Harry Potter: Wizards Unite. This Wizards Unite guide is about the traitorous Peter Pettigrew. Stay tuned for future detailed guides on all Wizards Unite Adversaries.

Peter Pettigrew in Wizards Unite

Peter Pettigrew is the 6th Adversary in the Challenges Registry of Feared Adversaries. This means he is fairly difficult to defeat.

You will need to place 1 Adversary and 4 Artefacts to prestige Pettigrew’s Registry page:

  • Peter Pettigrew
  • Peter Pettigrew’s Silver Hand
  • Peter Pettigrew’s Wand
  • Scabbers the Rat
  • Severed Finger

To earn the Peter Pettigrew Fragments and Artefact Fragments, you need to defeat the enemies in the chain, including the Guards and Pettigrew:

  • Formidable Dark Wizard
  • Vicious Death Eater
  • Peter Pettigrew

For each Guard you defeat, you earn 1 Artefact Fragment. When you defeat Pettigrew, you earn 1 Peter Pettigrew Fragment and 1 Artefact Fragment.

Foe Stamina Possible Artefact Fragments
Formidable Dark Wizard 559 1 Scabbers the Rat OR 1 Severed Finger OR 1 Peter Pettigrew’s Silver Hand
Vicious Death Eater 1512 1 Scabbers the Rat OR 1 Peter Pettigrew’s Wand OR 1 Peter Pettigrew’s Silver Hand
Peter Pettigrew 2565 Peter Pettigrew (guaranteed) AND 1 Artefact Fragment 

How to Defeat Peter Pettigrew in Wizards Unite

To defeat any Adversary, players need a combination of Spell Energy, Potions, and time. The more nodes you complete in your Profession’s Lesson Plan and Advanced Adversarial Combat, the fewer resources you will need to defeat Adversaries.

If you have completed the Auror Lesson Plan, you should consider playing as an Auror to defeat Pettigrew. You will save Spell Energy and Potions. Otherwise, you should play as the Profession that you have built up the most.

That said, you will not know the type of Adversary until you enter the Adversary Encounter. Once you start the Adversary Encounter, there is not a secure way to change your Profession. Some players have successfully used a second device to change Professions, but this can cause a glitch that kicks you out of the Adversary Encounter, so do this at your own risk.

Damage Dealt by Peter Pettigrew and Guards

When going through the Peter Pettigrew Adversary chain, you take damage whenever the Foe hits you. This chart shows how much damage you take, depending on your Profession. The chart assumes that you have completed the Profession Lesson Plan.

Foe Professor Magizoologist Auror >50% Auror <50%
Formidable Dark Wizard 12 9 13 11
Vicious Death Eater 24 18 37 33
Peter Pettigrew 41 31 45 39

Resources Needed to Defeat Peter Pettigrew

Plotter101 put together the following chart to help players prioritize their resources when completing the Pettigrew Adversary chain. These recommendations assume that players have completed 10/15 nodes in Advanced Adversarial Combat. The chart also assumes that Potion strength and maximum number of charges have been fully upgraded in the SOS skill tree. If you have not done all of this, you will use more resources.

You can calculate whether you need Potions by using this spreadsheet with data compiled by Plotter101 and his Discord. You will need to make a copy in your own Google Drive in order to update the player stats on the summary page.

If you are using a screen reader, the following text explains this chart about the Pettigrew chain. 

Aurors will need to (1) use 2 Spell Energy and 0 Potions when fighting the Formidable Dark Wizard, (2) use 4 Spell Energy and 0 Potions when fighting the Vicious Death Eater, and (3) use 5 Spell Energy by using 1 Strong Exstimulo Potion OR use 13 Spell Energy and a Healing Potion when fighting Pettigrew.

Magizoologists will need to (1) use 4 Spell Energy and 0 Potions to defeat the Formidable Dark Wizard, (2) use 11 Spell Energy and 0 Potions to defeat the Vicious Death Eater, and (3) use 10 Spell Energy and 1 Strong Exstimulo Potion OR 17 Spell Energy and 1 Healing Potion to defeat Peter Pettigrew.

Professors will need to (1) use 4 Spell Energy and 0 Potions to defeat the Formidable Dark Wizard, (2) use 12 Spell Energy and 0 Potions to defeat the Vicious Death Eater, and (3) use 12 Spell Energy and 1 Strong Exstimulo Potion OR 20 Spell Energy and 1 Healing Potion to defeat Peter Pettigrew.

Note that Plotter101 recommends you always keep some Healing Potions on hand in case you take more hits than anticipated.

I battle Adversaries as a Magizoologist with 15/15 nodes completed in Advanced Adversarial Combat. I typically do not use any Potions against the first two Foes in a chain. I sometimes use a Wit-Sharpening Potion or Strong Exstimulo Potion against the second Foe if I am in a hurry. When I fight Pettigrew, I typically use 1 Strong Exstimulo Potion. I have plenty of Healing Potions if necessary.

How to Defeat the Vicious Death Eater by Profession

We will need to contend with the Vicious Death Eater, the second Foe in the chain, before battling Peter Pettigrew. Plotter101 put together the chart below to show the different combinations of resources (Spell Energy, Potions, and time) necessary to defeat the Vicious Death Eater.

These recommendations assume that players have completed 10/15 nodes in Advanced Adversarial Combat. The chart also assumes that Potion strength and maximum number of charges have been fully upgraded in the SOS skill tree. If you have not done all of this, you will use more resources. You can calculate whether you need Potions by using the spreadsheet I mentioned earlier.

Final Thoughts on the Adversary

If you’re a newer or casual player, you might need to work your way up to completing the entire Peter Pettigrew Adversary Chain. You can start collecting Artefact Fragments by defeating the Guards. Then you can back out from the Adversary Encounter to save on Potions and Spell Energy.

It is important to prioritize finishing a single Profession’s Lesson Plan. All Professions have strengths and weaknesses, so consider your overall game strategy as a player, beyond Adversaries alone.

What do you think about Peter Pettigrew, the worst Gryffindor of all time? What other advice would you offer players of different levels?
