As we begin year two of Harry Potter: Wizards Unite we wanted to take the opportunity to celebrate by bringing back the first-ever Brilliant Event, Fantastic Flora & Fauna. During this limited-time bonus event, you’ll be able to encounter Foundables previously available during Part 1 of the event as well as all-new Foundables for Part 2. This event will take place for one week from Tuesday, July 28 at 11 a.m. PT–Tuesday, August 4 at 11 a.m. PT. 

The Foundables featured during this event can be found in the following locations:

  • Fire Crab - Wizarding Challenges
  • Fire Seed Bus h - Brilliant Portkey
  • Dragonhide Gloves - Tasks
  • Dragon Claw - Tasks
  • Ukranian Ironbelly - Tasks
  • Brilliant Newt Scamander - Encounter
  • Brilliant Buckbeak - Encounter
  • Brilliant Unicorn - Encounter

In addition, successfully returning Brilliant Buckbeak and Brilliant Unicorn Foundables will also grant fragments for the following Brilliant Foundables from Part 1:

  • Brilliant Young Acromantula
  • Brilliant Snargaluff
  • Brilliant Scorched Tree Stump
  • Brilliant Salamander


*Note: These bonus Foundable fragments will only appear as rewards until you receive enough fragments to place the sticker for that specific Foundable. After that time, fragments of that Foundable will no longer appear.

Brilliant Portkeys for this event will be 1.5km. Keep an eye out for Bonus Assignments that will be available in game after the main tasks have been completed. 

Don’t forget to pick up your complimentary store pack with 6 Baneberry, 4 Bulbadox Juice, 4 Angels Trumpet, 2 Erumpent Horn, 1 Hermit Crab Shell and 25 Spell Energy.

Please note: To enable as many players around the world as possible to participate safely, this event has been adjusted to facilitate playing from wherever you are. Please remember to adhere to local rules and regulations, and be respectful of others and your surroundings.

    @hpwulola Will we need 100 XP to rank up or will this be changed to 40 XP?

    @hpwulola I know so many people who will be thrilled about this as a catch up event. What a good idea!

    And thank you for clarifying about drops stopping once fragments are placed - I was musing about the 1000xp bonus, but that won't be a thing for people.

    So just the Portkeys won’t be able to be green starred and then overflowed to max? Seems odd. I prefer to keep the images placed holographic shiny before the event closes out.

    I would really love to get to do old events that I missed or didn't really have time to do.

    This is brilliant. Thanks so much for letting people catch up. Even though I’ve been playing since pretty much the beginning, I didn’t know how to do the events at the start. I have been looking forlornly at an unfinished Flora and Fauna page (and Potter’s Calamity part one) for a long time.

    Thanks for this! I started playing after this event and I'm excited to be able to fill it in.

    Looking forward to this! I started playing towards the end of this event and never completed it.

    Awesome! So glad I'll be able to fill in at least two of the pages I'm missing. I've been playing since launch so seeing all the blanks made me a little sad lol

    I've completed part 1. So bringing up that old page is kinda disappointing for me... I'll get no special reward as one of the earliest players.

    @hpwulola will the brilliant event could levels be changed from requiring 100 to 40 like the other brilliant event XP levels? I believe @LaurieTLC asked the same question above and I don’t see an answer about it yet. Thank you very much in advance!!

    @MirNasif you were rewarded with 15 RSB and other items when you completed the event last year. People who didn't complete part 1 last year have a chance to fill in the stickers on the registry, but not to get any of the event rewards that you got.

    @MirNasif Like @MtPollux said, we already got our rewards. Plus we will have more opportunities to get bonus xp on thr unicorn and hippogryff, in theory.

    I missed a lot of stickers last year. I hope to be able to collect them all in this event.

    @hpwulola There's a bug. I only needed 1x Brilliant Salamander and I've already been returned 3. Every brilliant unicorn = +1 Brilliant Salamander. Every brilliant Buckbeak = +1 Brilliant Sorched Tree Stump (I already had the tree Stump sticker completed from the original event).

    As New Zealand has already done the first page last year, what incentive is there for them to do it again?

    Anything unique?

    @Grogyan the event is really only the 2nd page, however for those that A) weren't playing yet or B) didn't finish the 1st page, there is now an opportunity to finish it

    Are the young acromantulas supposed to be showing up through traces or through the fortress? I have yet to see it from either, but I have gotten everything else from the original event.

    Fire crab fragment does not drop for me in Wizarding challenges. Is there a specific Runestone?

    @Kodokmag I'm on the Newt Scamander task 3/4

    @ChrisSOlsen You have to use the Purple level 1 Fantastic Flora and Fauna Runestone. Did you try Ruins III-V? I found mine in Ruins IV. I'm an Auror though (not sure if it matters)!
