The Fantastic Flora and Fauna event is currently scheduled to run for one week, from 6 PM on Wednesday, July 3 to 6 PM on Wednesday, July 10. Whether this is determined by local time or by GMT remains to be seen. 

Fortress Encounters

New and exciting Fortress Combat will also be accessible using the Event Exclusive Brilliant Runestones, which can be gained from Treasure Trunks earned by leveling up the Brilliant Forbidden Forest Registry. 


This Event includes a Hagrid-centric Story with each interaction being triggered by a Brilliant Encounter.

Hagrid Event Introduction

Hello There! I know yeh've got yer hands full w' Confoundables everywhere and such, but I could use yer help w' somethin' in particular, if yer willing.

Yeh see, somethin's not right 'bout the Forbidden Forest. Ever since the Calamity started disappearin' creatures, the forest's been thrown outta sorts.

If you come across any Foundables from the Forbidden Forest, let me know, would yeh?

Brilliant Buckbeak Encounter

Beaky! He's my special favorite Hippogriff. It's good to have him back where he belongs.

Brilliant Snargaluff Encounter

Ah, you've got yerself a Snargaluff! Sprout would be chuffed. That's one livin' thing returned to the forest - only a few 'undred more to go!

Brilliant Salamander Encounter

Well now, that's more like it! Salamanders are proper magical beasts. Returning this little fella will bring some harmony back to the forest.

Brilliant Scorched Tree Stump Encounter

Well that stump definitely came from the forest. I think it was even the home to a creature at some point! Maybe see if yeh can find somethin' more... livin' next time, eh?

Brilliant Unicorn Encounter

Not many can say they've gotten so close to a Unicorn. Shy, they are. Yeh've done a good thing, sendin' her home to the forest.

Brilliant Acromantula Encounter

Ah, an Acromantula! Magnificent creatures, aren't they? He'll be much happier with his kin in the forest.

Hagrid Event Conclusion

The Forbidden Forest's more like its old self now it's regained some o' its missin' creatures. Thanks for all yer help - couldn't've done it without yeh!

Tips and Tricks

For those looking to get a head start on preparing for the event, here's some things to keep in mind:

Make Sure to Check the Tasks First In-Game

  • Though we have provided a list of the Brilliant Event Tasks here, one notable feature ("feature") of Wizards Unite is that Tasks don't begin counting progress until you manually check them
  • You don't want to do all the Tasks, then open the screen and see a bunch of 0s!

Stock Up on Silver Keys

  • With the special 7km Event Portkeys being added, you don't want to end up having to manually unlock one at a time with your Gold Key
  • On the bright side, any 7km Portkeys still in your inventory after the event ends will not vanish

Keep Some 2km Portkeys on Hand

  • Tasks in Fantastic Flora and Fauna I and IV involve unlocking 5 total Portkeys (2 and 3, for the respective tasks) 
  • Having the shortest distance of Portkey type on hand will make this easier
