Event Overview

November’s Wizards Unite Brilliant event is here: Stronger United! After last month’s villains, heroes of the Wizarding World will have a chance to shine this month, in this and the three other events happening this month.

As with all other Brilliant events, this is a great chance to earn exclusive Restricted Section Books as well as Gold, scrolls, special event runestones, and more. 

Part Two

  • Start: Tues, November 19 at 11:00 PST / 19:00 UTC

  • End: Thurs, November 26 at 11:00 PST / 19:00 UTC

  • Features: new Special Assignments, new Registry page with new Foundables

Important Note: Due to the postponement of Part One, there will be no break in between Parts One and Two of Stronger United

Read on for full details of the event plus some tips on how to prepare and how to make the most of the rewards available during this event.

Changes from Previous Brilliant Events

Part Two of Stronger United is not expected to feature any changes from Part One. As a refresher, here are the changes from previous Brilliant Events:

  • No break: Due to a critical issue with update 2.6.0, Part One was postponed, leaving no week off before Part Two. Community Day will also happen during Part One, and a Legends of Hogwarts event starts as soon as Part Two ends. It will be a three-week string of events with no breaks. Good luck!

  • Traces: We’re back to normal Trace Encounters this time. No Oddity-style Brilliants, unlike Fighting Forces.

  • Bonus Assignment: Remember that Bonus Assignment at the end of Fighting Forces Part Two? There is now a Bonus Assignment for both parts of this event. Keep this in mind when pacing yourself for the event!

A couple other changes from Fighting Forces are also still around:

  • Spell Books: That’s right, Spell Books again! These are in the Special Assignment rewards.

  • Store Gift and Bundles: Once again, each week of the event includes a free gift as well as bundles for purchase. More on these below.

Event Gifts and Bundles

Part Two of Stronger United features a free gift available to all players, as well as three bundles available for purchase. The SOS bundle and the Brilliant Bundle can only be purchased once. The Bonus bundle can be purchased twice.

Free Gift

The Free Gift contains:

  • 3 Healing Potions
  • 1 Potent Exstimulo Potion
  • 15 Spell Energy

SOS Bundle

The SOS Bundle will cost 450 Gold and contains:

Item Ordinary Cost
4 Healing Potions 100
5 Strong Exstimulo Potions 250
2 Potent Exstimulo Potions 150
25 Spell Energy 50
3 Level 5 Ministry of Magic Runestones Not available for purchase
Total 550

Brilliant Bundle

The Brilliant Bundle costs 900 Gold and contains:

Item Ordinary Cost
5 Healing Potions 125
5 Strong Exstimulo Potions 350
7 Potent Exstimulo Potions 375
100 Spell Energy 200
5 Level 5 Ministry of Magic Runestones Not available for purchase
Total 1050

Bonus Assignment Bundle

The Bonus Assignment Bundle costs 2100 Gold and contains:

Item Ordinary Cost
20 Healing Potions 500
10 Strong Exstimulo Potions 500
15 Potent Exstimulo Potions 1125
150 Spell Energy 300
10 Dark Detectors 1095
Total 3520

All three of the available bundles are relatively medicore deals, as their prices are bloated with relatively easily obtainable items like Healing Potions, Strong Exstimulo Potions, and Spell Energy. In most cases, it's cheaper just to buy the specific items you need.

However, if you happen to need all of the items in any of the bundles (such as while doing back to back to back Fortress runs), they offer a modest savings over buying them all individually.

New Content

Part Two of this Brilliant will introduce six new Foundables. Here’s where you can expect to find them:

Special Assignments

A new event with new content also means new Special Assignments! As of publishing, the game files do not have the full task list, so the below list is incomplete and highly subject to change. Some, if not all, of the tasks may simply be placeholders until the full task list is released.

(Warning: Spoilers!)

Stronger United Page 2 Dialogue

Introduction

Harry informed me that the Calamity appears to be focused on the Ministry itself. It's vitally important that you continue returning the Foundables that you find, but I must ask you to be discreet.

The public is looking for the Ministry to be a source of calm. We have no idea what would happen if the Calamity just....whisked us all away at once. I don't think that's possible, but I also would never have imagined that anything like it was feasible in the first place.

Percy Weasley

Percy is Head of Magical Transportation. It's an important office, but hardly the largest in the Ministry. Why would the Calamity choose him?

How to Prepare

While the short notice of event details gave players very little time to prepare for this event specifically, here are some last-minute tips to help you prepare anyway:

Queue Potions for Tasks in Advance

As with Part One, the brewing tasks for this event will use up a lot of time if you're not prepared. If you want to speed through these tasks, you can queue up the required potions in advance and wait to claim until you reach those tasks. 

This week, however, there are a total of eight potions which you'll need to brew, so you'll need to rent the gold cauldron if you want to be able to really speed through. Realistically though, you'll need to rent the 8 hour cauldron for that (35 gold), which is only 9 gold cheaper than just paying to complete 4 Healing Potions back to back (44 gold). Or, you know, just wait. 

For those who'd rather not spend gold just to speed through the tasks, you'll only need to queue up the first four potions: two basic Invigoration Draughts and two Strong Exstimulo Potions. With Master Notes on the first (Invigoration) and last (Strong Exstimulo) potions, that'll take just under 13 hours. That means you'll need to start your potions by 10pm Pacific Time Monday night (6am Tuesday UTC) if you want your first batch of potions ready when the event starts.

Just be sure that you do not claim the potions early. Ignore the red dot and wait until you reach the tasks requiring them to pick them up.

Save up Portkey Space

While the current Special Assignments don’t seem to require players to open any Portkeys (though it’s very likely there will be at least one requiring players to unlock Portkeys), those who want to finish their Registry pages will still need to pick up at least five Brilliant Portkeys during Part One. 

Hold onto any unlocked Portkeys until after the event starts to avoid accidentally picking up unneeded Portkeys before the Brilliant ones are available!

Stock up Ingredients for Brewing Tasks

Even if you're not planning to brew your potions in advance, you'll want to be sure to stock up the necessary ingredients now. Here's what you'll need:

  • 2 Honey Water
  • 0-2 Vervain Infusion* 
  • 2 Scurvygrass
  • 0-4 Lovage*
  • 6 Bitterroot
  • 8 Snowdrop
  • 1-2 Re'em Blood*
  • 0-2 Abraxan Hair*
  • 4 Wormwood
  • 12 Bubotuber Pus
  • 8 Dittany
  • 4 Dragon Liver

*these ingredients are included as task rewards. If you don't plan to brew in advance, you only need the lower number. 

Pace yourself

Finally, with the addition of bonus assignments, this Brilliant Event might take a bit longer to complete than previous ones. If you want to complete all of the Assignments, including the Bonus assignment, you’ll need to make sure to allocate yourself enough time to get through it all. 

Most players should still be able to get through all of the main Part Two tasks without serious grinding. The bonus tasks, however, might take awhile for players with lower spawn or inn density, as it requires returning so many High Foundables.

It may also be difficult for those without easy access to a Fortress. You'll need to do at least 15 Challenges, so allocate yourself about half an hour at a Fortress at minimum to be safe.

If your area is low on Spawns, you struggle to keep up on Spell Energy, or you'll need to make a long trip to a Fortress, you may want to pick up the pace on the earlier tasks to give yourself extra time for the bonus assignment.

Conclusion

Now that you’re all ready, the only thing left to do is wait for the event to start! We’ll continue to update this guide as more information is available or confirmed, so be sure to check back soon!
