Witches and Wizards,

Harry, Hermione, and Constance decide to prioritise ending the Calamity in an effort to cut off The Unforgivable's resources. Working off of Gareth Greengrass' theory that only Grim Fawley himself can end the Calamity, the team decides to devote themselves to finding the missing wizard and his equally missing wife, Penelope. But does the secretive Grim even want to be found? 

Later, as The Unforgivable unleash their most lethal threat yet, Hermione attempts to uncover the true identity of “Theus,” The Unforgivable’s mysterious leader. What will the clues Gareth left behind and Hermione’s own research reveal?

    Huh? Any specific reason to put a Community Day in the middle of a week?

    People have to work, go to school etc...

    @hpwulola The infographics I’ve seen also show a date overlap of New Moon traces 4 thru 8 October.

    Is this a second spotlight event? (ie just boosted New-Moon-themed traces concurrent with the early-October Brilliant event) ✨

    @Dieks77 it's probably to accommodate people who asked for the 1920s event to be in a weekend so that they can walk and unlock more portkey portmanteaus.

    Is the burning day brilliant event really only 5 days long & no weekend??

    @Hannager Wait, what!? Since BE for one week before, why just adjusted to five days to finish BE? Looks like he's want to finish quick BE before event is over.

    @Djea this is good idea for weekend finding portkey 1920's to finishing frame, so happy weekend!

    @Hannager it's shortened to 4 days long. Probably because a lot of people finish it in less than 4 days. I try to stretch the assignments out; less stressful that way.

    only three day to go to the next WW1920. What's about the announced update?

    Many of my friends can not play the event without, because they have massiv problems with ingame tracking. So they have to walk 10-20km only for a 1km Portkey

    Please don't say, the update wil come AFTER the next WW1920. It is no longer playable and we have to strike the event again :-(

    Thanks Lola!

    Updated Infographic for the October 2021 is ready. ( Not sure if I should it should replace the other post) 🙂

    I also have an updated bug list on spreadsheet and I'll update it accordingly when 2.19 goes live. Hoping all goes well!💜

    Just a thought, but since the spotlight event has no tasks or rewards why not overlap it with the 1920s portkeys. It seems like a great way to have the events work together. When the Barty Crouch Jr event was accidentally announced as the same time as 1920s event, it sounded like a great idea. 1920s on it's own isn't that exciting but paired with non-portkey events could be a lot of fun. Just a thought.

    Horcrux Halloween sounds exciting! Do we have details on this?

    @RUMPELSTILZKIN I'm looking forward to the Horcrux Halloween details too! From the infographic, I don't recognize any of those pictures as currently available in the game (except Nagini from the 1920s page). It would be awesome if we got some new stuff!

    @MotherOf2Lions thinking back to the books, besides Nagini, the sword of Gryffindor was a horcrux and Harry Potter himself was, too. I don’t remember any others that are part of the game (some gold cup and Ravenna Ravenclaw’s tiara were others, I don’t remember the rest) .

    I still don’t see any information on the event, and it’s less than 24 hours now until it starts.

    @RUMPELSTILZKIN They were: Tom Riddle's diary, Marvolo family ring, Slytherin's locket, Hufflepuff's cup, Ravenclaw's diadem, Nagini and Harry.

    Sadly, I'm not optimistic that this event is going to happen. ☹️

    Spoiler alert -- see pages 158 & 159 of the Harry Potter Wizards Unite Official Game Guide book 😉

    Wow Wizards Unite could possibly not have a Halloween event? At least say you have a way to Amp up the spotlight event to make it better. Haven't been able to find random group on knight bus since spotlight event started 😕 can't wait to see what you have in store for 2.19 and horcrux event

    @hpwulola Thank you for posting the updated information in a timely manner.

    @MotherOf2Lions and @oooHulio, this seems to be a printed (!) book. Like, printed on paper with pages to turn manually. 😳

    But since it was published in 2019, how can it have information about this year’s Halloween event?

  • MaikeruLMaikeruL Posts: 10 ✭✭

    @Rumpelstilzkin It contains a lot of information on assets that weren't officially in the game yet. It doesn't specifically identify it as a Halloween event. Just another page in the registry.
