All Feared Adversaries Event – The Most Powerful Surge!


Karthik Bhojaraj

Witches and Wizards,

Ready your wands for the battle as you confront a week-long surge of every Adversary we have faced so far in Harry Potter: Wizards Unite!

Note: The Baruffio’s Brain Elixir Spotlight Event is available for players from level 4 to level 14 to help them grind Wizarding XP!

Also, this event gives us an opportunity to earn Restricted Section Books outside the regular Brilliant Events!!

Note: Thank you Niantic and WB Games for providing Wizards Unite Hub with early information so we can create Wizards Unite guides. They do not pay us for these articles. We rely on ad revenue and donations to run this website.

Adversaries Event Tasks and Rewards

The SOS Task Force has been assigned several tasks to help witches and wizards easily contain the surge!

Unlike other Adversary events, this event has 2 task pages, one bonus task page, and a chance to earn the coveted Restricted Section Books!

Quest 1 StepReward
Use 1 Edible Dark Mark20 Spell Energy
Complete 4 Forest Chambers1 Wit-Sharpening Potion
Deal 20,000 damage to Adversaries6 Snowdrop
Return 15 Artefact Fragments from Feared Beast Chains1 Strong Exstimulo Potion

Collection Rewards:

  • 3 DADA Books
  • 500 Wizarding XP
  • 60 Gold
  • 30 Spell Energy

The tasks are straight forward. You can use the free EDM from the complimentary gift to clear off the 1st task. And the Knight Bus should help you out for the Forest Chambers task!

The 4th task requires you to collect Artefacts from Feared Beasts. These are:

  • Slytherin’s Basilisk
  • Aragog
  • Ancient Norweigan Ridgeback
  • Ancient Ukrainian Ironbelly
  • Ancient Hungarian Horntail

You earn 1 Artefact Fragment from each Guard, plus 2 Fragments from the final Adversary. By defeating 4 total Adversary Chains, you earn 16 Fragments.

While doing this, you will deal 17,116 to 20,972 Damage (4 of Slytherin’s Basilisk to 4 of the Ancient Hungarian Horntail). Thus you might need to defeat 1-2 more Adversaries to deal 20,000 Damage.

Quest 2 StepReward
Use 1 Edible Dark Mark2 Healing Potions
Complete 2 Dark Chambers1 Silver Key
Earn 1350 Challenge XP Through Wizarding Challenges and/or Adversary Chains1 Potent Exstimulo Potion
Defeat 5 Feared Wizard Adversaries1 Spell Book

Collection Rewards:

  • 3 DADA Books
  • 500 Wizarding XP
  • 60 Gold
  • 30 Spell Energy

Hopefully the RNG should bless players with an EDM drop from other Adversaries Chains so we can complete the 1st task. The 2nd and the 3rd tasks can be completed from the Knight Bus in the Dark Chambers!

The 4th task requires you to defeat 5 of the following Adversaries:

  • Draco Malfoy
  • Fenrir Greyback
  • Gilderoy Lockhart
  • Peter Pettigrew
  • Narcissa Malfoy

Draco Malfoy and Fenrir Greyback are the easiest of these to defeat. If you’re low on resources, or if you’re relatively new to Adversaries, focus on finding these Adversaries.

Bonus TasksReward
Defeat Draco Malfoy 1 Time10 Spell Energy
Defeat Fenrir Greyback 1 Time1 Unicorn Hair
Defeat Gilderoy Lockhart 1 Time6 Ginger Root
Defeat Peter Pettigrew 1 Time2 Healing Potions
Defeat Narcissa Malfoy 1 Time1 Wit-Sharpening Potion

Defeat Slytherin’s Basilisk 1 Time1 Silver Key

Completion Rewards:

  • 1000 Wizarding XP
  • 5 Restricted Books
  • 40 Gold
  • 30 Spell Energy
  • 1 Fearless Fighter Title

The Bonus assignment requires us to battle every Feared Adversary available in the game. The main advantage of finishing this bonus task will be to get the Restricted Section Books, which are usually given only during the Brilliant Events!

That said, not everyone will be able to complete the Bonus Assignment. That’s okay! Games should be fun, not stressful.

How to Prepare for July’s Adversaries Event

The preparation for this event remains mostly unchanged compared to the previous Adversaries Event! One thing to note: with all Adversaries boosted, that means your Adversary spawns will be completely random. Any Adversary is possible from an EDM or on the Map.

Prepare to Defeat Adversaries

The advice is same as we have seen from the past events.

  1. Finish a Profession Lesson Plan.
  2. Work on Advanced Adversarial Combat.
  3. Improve your Potions through SOS Training.
  4. Start brewing Healing Potions, Exstimulo Potions, and Wit-Sharpening Potions.
  5. Start collecting extra Ingredients for Exstimulo Potions and Wit-Sharpening Potions.
  6. Fill up on Spell Energy!
  7. Open up your maximum Gifts each day, prioritizing Gifts that give you the aforementioned resources.
  8. Purchase Vault Extensions.

This SOS Training chart indicates the different nodes and their locations to improve your Potions.

Baruffio’s Spotlight Event Prep

If you are at level 4 to level 14 in Wizards Unite, this is the chance to level up quickly! Here are the bonuses:

  • Baruffio’s Brain Elixir brew time reduced to 6 hours
  • Master Notes will reduce Baruffio’s Brain Elixir brew time by 50%
  • Baruffio’s Brain Elixir effects increased to 3X

First, follow the advice above for collecting Ingredients for Exstimulo Potions. You can take advantage of the reduced brewing time. Exstimulo Potions will help you return higher threat Traces and therefore earn more Wizarding XP.

This video provides additional advice!

Tips to Enjoy the Adversaries Event

This advice assumes you get Traces at your home, or you’re able to visit an area with Wizards Unite activity on the Map. We’re still in a pandemic, so prioritize your health and follow all local laws!

If you are new to Adversaries, don’t worry about the tasks. Focus on just Guards, plus Draco Malfoy and Fenrir Greyback. These will be easier for you to defeat than the rest of the full Adversary Chains.

Easy tip for all players: keep a close eye on your Potions! Collect new Potions immediately and use Master Notes on the next one. Keep brewing Potions constantly.

Prestige Pages Quickly

With all Feared Adversaries boosted, it will be more difficult to focus on a single page to prestige. However, you can still follow this general advice.

To place all of the Images on the Adversary pages, you need fewer of the final Adversary than you do of the Artefacts. This is true of all Feared Adversaries.

If you are low on Spell Energy and/or Potions, you can work to prestige your Registry pages while still conserving resources. Once you have placed an Adversary, and you have returned them enough times to place again, back out from future Adversary chains after you defeat the Guards. You will still receive Artefact Fragments by defeating the Guards.

However, this strategy does mean you earn fewer DADA Books. It’s up to you if you want to prioritize grinding DADA Books or prestiging pages.

Grind DADA Books

If you really want to grind DADA Books, your best strategy involves going to an area with multiple Points of Interest in the game. Plant Snowdrop or Wormwood at a Greenhouse, depending on if you need more Exstimulo Potions or Healing Potions. Walk from Inn to Inn if available, or sit by an Inn if you just have one. Replenish your Spell Energy between Adversary Encounters. Use an EDM for 3 additional Adversaries every 30 minutes.

You earn 1 guaranteed DADA Book for each Adversary you defeat. Occasionally you can earn 1 DADA Book from defeating a Guard. You earn additional DADA Books by placing Adversary Images in the Challenges Registry.
