Adversaries Event Tasks and Rewards

The debut Lethal Adversaries Event differs slightly from past Adversaries Events. Players have 2 regular sets of tasks to complete, plus a Bonus Assignment.

Rewards for all Wizards Unite events will be generous between now and the games end on January 31, 2022.

If you are seeing plenty of Adversaries on the Map, wait until youve completed all other tasks before you use the Edible Dark Mark. Then it will apply to the 2nd quest.

How to Prepare for the Lethal Adversaries Event

This is the first Lethal Adversaries Event, so were going in a little blind. However, I can still offer some general advice.

At this point, if you havent completed an entire Profession Lesson Plan, I would plan on backing out before Barty Crouch Jr. arrives. Even the Guards will be difficult, but you can manage them with Potions.

For everyone else, work on your Advanced Adversarial Combat. Its possible the initial 10 nodes against Feared Adversaries will also apply for Lethal Adversaries. Plus, you have to unlock those nodes anyway to start working on the nodes for Lethal Adversaries.

Strengthen your Potions through SOS Training. Brew the following Potions:

  • Exstimulo Potions
  • Wit-Sharpening Potions
  • Healing Potions
  • Tonics for Trace Detection (not as critical)

Also collect extra Ingredients for Exstimulo Potions and Wit-Sharpening Potions. The brewing time will be reduced with Master Notes during the event.

Max out your Spell Energy. Right now, Spell Energy on the Map is extremely generous, so this should be easy to do.

This SOS Training chart indicates the different nodes and their locations to improve your Potions. Note the inclusion of nodes to improve Tonic for Trace Detection.

Tips to Enjoy the Lethal Adversaries Event

Honestly, this section is difficult to fill out, for 2 reasons. 1) Wizards Unite is ending, so even a fun event is bittersweet. 2) This is our first Lethal Adversaries Event, so I dont know the math to break down specific advice.

If you have not progressed much with Advanced Adversarial Combat, you might want to focus on the Feared Adversaries. You can still enter Barty Crouch Jr. Encounters, but consider backing out after 1-3 Guards. Otherwise, you will need to use a lot of Potions.

If you dont need anymore Defense Against the Dark Arts Books, and youve already prestiged all of your Feared Adversaries, you can focus just on Barty Crouch Jr. The Dark Mark on the Map will look different between a Feared Adversary and a Lethal Adversary.

Of course, if you still need specific Feared Adversaries to prestige, you can enter an Adversary Encounter to see who it is. If you still dont need additional DADA Books, you can back out of any Adversary youve already green-starred on a gold frame.

Finally, while we dont know the exact difficulty of Barty Crouch Jr. yet, we do know he will be a greater challenge than Narcissa Malfoy. Stack a Potent Exstimulo Potion with a Wit-Sharpening Potion immediately. Restock as necessary. Keep an eye on your health bar (this is easier with the new update since low health is indicated with red around your screen), and drink Healing Potions with abundant caution.

Adversaries Event Bundles

Like all Wizards Unite events, this Adversaries Event will feature store bundles. The free store pack includes an Edible Dark Mark! Both paid bundles are repeats from past events.

Free store pack includes:

  • 1 Dark Detector
  • 1 Edible Dark Mark
  • 2 Healing Potions
  • 1 Exstimulo Potion
  • 30 Spell Energy

The Arresto Adversary Bundle (800 Gold) includes:

  • 3 Edible Dark Marks
  • 125 Spell Energy

Is this bundle a good deal?

You can buy 5 Edible Dark Marks for 1200 Gold, making the individual value 240 Gold. Thus the value of 3 Edible Dark Marks is 720 Gold. Unless, you need discounted Spell Energy, this bundle is not good value for EDMs.

The Adversary Vanquisher Trunk (2020 Gold) includes:

  • 3 Edible Dark Marks
  • 125 Spell Energy
  • 8 Potent Exstimulo Potions
  • 8 Wit-Sharpening Potions
  • 8 Strong Exstimulo Potions

3 Edible Dark Marks are worth 720 Gold.

A single Potent Exstimulo Potion in Diagon Alley costs 75 Gold. However, if you have all of the common Ingredients, its a better deal to buy 1 Unicorn Hair for 30 Gold, use Master Notes in the Cauldron, and then collect the Potion immediately for 41 Gold. So lets put the value of Potent Exstimulo Potions at 71 Gold.

Thus 8 Potent Potions are worth 568 Gold.

Normally we dont recommend spending Gold on Strong Exstimulo Potions because their Ingredients are common. However, with frequent Wizards Unite events, players are going through their Potions quickly.

Looking at just Ingredients, its 3 Gold each per Snowdrop, Bitterroot, and Reem Blood, plus 12 Gold for Abraxan Hair, so 36 Gold per Strong Exstimulo Potion.

Thus 8 Strong Potions are worth 288 Gold.

I really dont recommend spending Gold on Wit-Sharpening Potions because Ingredients will be boosted during the event, AND you can get these Potions through Gifts.

Before Spell Energy, the bundle is really not worth the price asked. I only recommend this bundle for rural players who dont have access to Ingredients or Spell Energy. And now, with Unicorn Hair available on the Map, and boosted Spell Energy, the bundle really isnt a good deal.

This game really sucks. I have been working on the BarTy Crouch Jr adversary. I have played it at least 5 times and every time except one the game has thrown me out even though I have not run out of life.
