Harry Potter Wizards Unite Community Day is Coming This Weekend
The Potter's Calamity Brilliant Event also kicks off this week.
On July 20 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. PT, more Traces than normal will appear on the in-game map, and specifically, there will be a higher chance to finding Hogwarts School Traces.
During this event, players will be able to collect a Free Store Pack containing 50 Spell Energy (used to cast spells) and one Barrufio’s Brain Elixir. This Elixir normally doubles the amount of Wizarding XP players will receive from Traces and Portkeys for 30 minutes, but for this event, players will earn three times the normal amount of XP when the Elixir is active.
Finally, Dark Detectors will last for an hour during this event, rather than the standard 30 minutes. Dark Detectors function similarly to Lure Modules in Pokemon Go, in that they can be placed at Inns to cause “higher-threat” Traces to appear nearby for a limited time.
In addition to this Community Day event, a new Brilliant Event kicks off on July 16. The Potter’s Calamity Brilliant Event will cause “an unusually high number of Harry Potter-related Foundables” to appear on the in-game map.
The event will take place over two separate weeks, but each week will have different in-game tasks and Registry pages for players to complete. Week One will run from July 16 at 11 a.m. PT to July 23 at 11 a.m. PT, while Week Two will kick off on July 30 at 11 a.m. PT and end on August 6 at 11 a.m. PT.
