Time-Turners and Whomping Willows are just two of the Emergency-threat Foundables that will be boosted for this weekend’s Spotlight Event!
The next July 2021 event in Harry Potter: Wizards Unite will excite players of all levels. This casual Spotlight Event will feature every single Emergency-threat Foundables, with no tasks or rewards.
You can grind grind grind, play casually, or skip the weekend completely. It’s up to you!
Note: Thank you Niantic and WB Games for providing this information early so Wizards Unite Hub could create this event guide.
Boosted Foundables will appear on the Map AND when using a Tonic for Trace Detection.

How to Prepare for the July Spotlight Event
First, look at your Registry pages that feature the boosted Foundables. Which pages are you close to prestiging? Brita’s video from March is queued up to where she goes over all of the pages with Emergency-threat Foundables.
Personally, I do not need any of the boosted Foundables, but I need all the Care of Magical Creatures Runestones I can get so there can be more Baby Phoenix Fragments in my future. This will make the boosted Rubeus Hagrid Foundables more valuable to me. And if I play those Runestones in Forest Chamber IV (or above), I am guaranteed a Foundable Fragment. It might not be the Baby Phoenix, but it will still get me closer to placing images in the Registry and earning more Runestones.
You’ll also want to stockpile a few Potions before the Spotlight Event begins. Focus on the following:
- Strong Exstimulo Potion
- Potent Exstimulo Potion
- Baruffio’s Brain Elixir
- Tonic for Trace Detection
- Dawdle Draught
You’ll want several of each of these to maximize the event! Personally, I plan to save my Potent Exstimulo Potions for the next Adversaries Event (or for Lethal Adversaries!). However, if you are a newer player, or you haven’t increased the efficacy of your Strong Exstimulo Potion, you might want to use a few Potent Exstimulo Potions over the weekend.
Boost your Potions by investing in SOS Training. The following nodes will help your Potions be more effective, so you get additional benefits with less resources.

How to Enjoy the July Spotlight Event
Ask yourself if you want to be strategic this weekend or would you rather enjoy a casual event? There’s not a right or wrong approach!
If you’re playing casually, just check in whenever you’re able. Use your Trace Charm on any Emergency Traces that meet your needs.
However, if you want a strategy for the weekend, you have multiple options.
As already mentioned, you can focus on prestiging pages. As necessary, do Wizarding Challenges to earn the required Challenge Fragments. After you prestige a page, then use your Trace Charm on the Emergency Trace for that page.
If you haven’t placed all of the boosted Foundables yet, save your Trace Charm for those Emergency Traces! That way, you’ll get more of the Fragments you need.
If you want to earn bonus rewards from Treasure Trunks, then you’ll want to look at your Gold pages. Every time you place one of the boosted Foundables on a Gold frame, you earn 600 Family XP and 55 Ministry Manuals. That’s also 6 Treasure Trunks — so 6 opportunities to earn Spell Books, Field Charm charges, Gold Gifts, and more, depending on what you’ve unlocked in SOS Training.
Once again, use your Trace Charm strategically to earn more Fragments for your Gold pages. This will help you grind for Ministry Manuals as well as earn rewards from Treasure Trunks.
For players who are taking on Adversaries, you will also earn 10x Challenge XP this weekend! You see? Something for everyone to enjoy!
