Hello fellow Wizards and Witches! In the game Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, S.O.S. Assignments are a set of special tasks that serve as a plot mechanism for the story and mythology around the Calamity! The tasks are accompanied with dialogue from several characters in the game.

Each group of tasks comes in a set of 3 and are always worth the same amount of Wizarding Experience (50, 100, and 300 XP). You will also be rewarded 5 Gold for every set you complete and turn in. Note that there are level requirements to progress to the next set of tasks!


The Complete S.O.S. Assignment List

Pro Tip: You cannot complete tasks before you get to them. We encourage looking ahead on this list so you can better prepare and strategize an approach.

Defeat 6 Foes in Wizarding Challenges.

Tip: The Pixie Wings and Fire Embers are common drops when you successfully return a Foundable being Confounded by Pixies and fire, respectively.

Some common Pixie Confoundables include: Gobstone Set and Crystal Ball. Some common Fire Embers include: Music Box and Wanted Poster of an Askaban Escapee. 

S.O.S. Task Set #11: Diving deeper

Required Level: 14

Recover 5 Foundable Fragments.
Return 2 High risk Foundables.
Defeat 10 Foes in Wizarding Challenges.

S.O.S. Task Set #12: Dynamic Dilemma

Required Level: 16

Place 2 Images in the Registry.
Dine at Inns 7 times.
Defeat 10 Formidable Pixie Foes in Wizarding Challenges.

Tip: Farming Formidable Pixies can take awhile! If you are a Professor, the best place to encounter these Foes is in Ruins Chambers 3/4. If you are an Auror or Magizoologist, we recommend alternating between Ruins Chamber 5 and Tower Chamber 1. Teaming up with Professors in team Wizarding Challenges can yield Formidable Pixies as well!

S.O.S. Task Set #13: Chasing the Wind

Required Level: 18

Perform 5 Masterful Spell casts.
Recover 3 Troll Bogeys from Troll Confoundables.
Brew 7 Potions.

Tip: Similar to Sets #8 and #10.

Some common Troll Confoundables include: Flesh-Eating Slugs and Magical Megaphone.

S.O.S. Task Set #14: All In One

Required Level: 20

Recover 5 Doxy Droppings from Doxy Oddities.
Recover 2 Tufts of Werewolf Hair from Werewolf Oddities.
Dine at Inns 10 times.

Tip: Doxy Droppings are common drops from Doxy Oddities. Doxy only spawn during Dawn. This is defined as an hour before Sunrise until an hour after Sunrise. We recommend looking up sunrise time in your local area and plan to hunt some Doxies during that time!

Tufts of Werewolf Hair are common drops from Werewolf Oddities. Werewolves only spawn during the nights of the Full Moon. This is defined as +/- 1 day of the Full Moon. This means you have roughly 3 nights a month to hunt these creatures!

S.O.S. Task Set #15: Witches and Wizards United

Required Level: 20

Defeat 30 Foes in Wizarding Challenges.
Complete 3 Wizarding Challenges with 3 Teammates.
Defeat 10 Formidable Death Eater Foes in Wizarding Challenges.

Tip: Completing 3 Wizarding Challenges with 3 Teammates requires a team of 4 (including yourself). You do not count towards the “3 Teammates” portion of this task.

Farming Formidable Death Eaters is a little more challenging than the Formidable Pixie Foes we encountered in Set #12, but if we follow the same general rules in Set #12 – it can be a little easier! If you are an Auror, you will encounter Formidable Death Eaters most commonly in Ruins Chambers 3/4. If you are a Professor or Magizoologist, we recommend Ruins Chamber 5 and Tower Chamber 1! Teaming up with an Auror or two in team Wizarding Challenges can also yield many Formidable Death Eaters!

Parting Words

The S.O.S. Assignment tasks give us a brief but interesting look into the Calamity and what caused it. We cannot wait for more sets of S.O.S. Assignments to be released. We will make sure to update this guide as more are released!

Get out there and help other Wizards and Witches defeat the Calamity!

Tip: Completing 3 Wizarding Challenges with 3 Teammates requires a team of 4 (including yourself). You do not count towards the “3 Teammates” portion of this task. –> No, that is incorrect. 3 in total is sufficient, at least it worked perfectly fine for me. You might however mention that this task is completely bugged and it depends on luck whether or not a challenge counts for the achievement…

Hi, Can confirm you need just 3 players total for the complete 3 wizarding challenges with 3 teammates. Myself and 2 friends worked away on this one. For each challenge you complete, only one teammate at random seems to get the credit for this SOS assignment. We ended up spamming level 1 challenges. We probably did around 8 challenges in total (only two of us were up to this SOS assignment) before the two players both got 3/3 on this. There were times when none of us got the credit, seemingly it might have tried to register for the one… Read more »

I completed it myself with two others. Anecdotally, there are 2 things people suggest: 1) that the person to get credit must have created the lobby by being the first to select a runestone; and 2) the person to get credit must be the first to exit the room at the end. I had gotten stuck at 2 completions, and when I tried both of these, I got my third… but it could be coincidence…

I think its a shame if you play this game on your own that you cannot complete the SOS challenge.

I don’t know anyone in real life who plays, how do I play with those I have befriended?

I just reached Assignment 13, and the first task is now “Perform five great casts” instead of masterful.

It’s been nine months since I got to the Complete 3 Wizarding Challenges with 3 Teammates task, and I still haven’t been able to complete it. I don’t live near a city or a Simon mall. And I think there are now more SOS tasks, but I can’t go forward… PLEASE change this so we can get another option!!!
