The plot thickens in Harry Potter: Wizards Unite! Just how guilty is Constance? Find out in the next Wizards Unite Brilliant Event: Constance’s Lament.

Note: Thank you Niantic and WB Games for providing this information early so Wizards Unite Hub could create this event guide.

Keep in mind that this Brilliant Event will only be 4 days! Unfortunately, the tasks have not been adapted. They are the same level of difficulty as tasks for normal, week-long Brilliant Events.

Constance’s Lament Brilliant Event Part 1 Guide


This Brilliant Event has been adapted so you can play at home.

As a reminder, Part 1 Portkeys will give you Part 1 rewards anytime you open them, even if you wait to open them during Part 2.

The Portkey location will be one of my personal favorites, the Astronomy Tower!

If you don’t want to walk off Portkeys, you can also complete the Bonus Assignment.

Find Brilliant Event preparation tips at the end of the article. These are particularly helpful for newer players.

Brilliant Event Tasks


Nothing is too original in the tasks, which have NOT been adapted to finish in 4 days.

The first quest requires doing Master Notes. You can start brewing a Potion before the Brilliant Event begins, but wait to use Master Notes. Then you can collect it quickly and do Master Notes on the next Potion.

After doing Master Notes for the first quest, do not collect any Potions. You need to brew 5 Potions for the third quest.

Do not visit the Brilliant Registry until you reach the third quest. You need to collect Brilliant Runestones here.

Also, stop returning Brilliant Foundables if you reach 19 of either while doing the first two quests. Once you reach 20, you’re automatically taken to the Brilliant Registry Page, which you do not want. If you forget, quickly force close the app to avoid collecting any Brilliant Runestones.

For the Bonus Assignment, you need to place Images in the Brilliant Registry. To do this quickly, wait until you have collected the rewards from your fourth quest before you place any Images.

Constance’s Lament Quest 1/4


Collecting Ingredients, Portmanteaus, or Spell Energy is pretty straightforward.

To use Master Notes quickly, brew short Potions. You can also spend Gold on a Rental Cauldron, or to collect 1 Potion immediately. See the tips above about timing the first Potion just right.

Use a Tonic for Trace Detection to find enough Brilliant Traces.

These tasks go together quite nicely. Tonic for Trace Detection should help you find both Luna Lovegood and Brilliant Quaffle Traces.

2nd Quest Rewards

Constance’s Lament Quest 3/4

As already stated, you can brew your Potions in advance. When you collect them, you get credit for the task. If you want 5 Potions ready to collect immediately, you’ll need to buy a Rental Cauldron. Otherwise, just brew a Healing Potion or regular Exstimulo Potion.

Visit the Brilliant Registry to collect Brilliant Runestones. As long as you avoided it before this quest, you should have enough Brilliant Family XP to collect 5 Runestones.

Drink a Baruffio’s Brain Elixir and take the Knight Bus.

Constance’s Lament Quest 4/4


Quidditch Keeper Ron Weasley is boosted. Find him with a Tonic for Trace Detection. He is a Severe-threat Foundable, so if you are a lower-level player, you might want to use a Dawdle Draught with an Exstimulo Potion.

To defeat 20 Foes, hop on the Knight Bus. You usually get 3-4 Foes per Challenge in Ruins IV to Tower III.

Use Brilliant Runestones while doing those Wizarding Challenges to earn the Brilliant Love-Struck Ron Weasley Fragments.

Burning Day BONUS Assignment!


Do Wizarding Challenges with Brilliant Runestones to earn Brilliant Love-Struck Ron Weasley Fragments. You can place this multiple times.

To earn 10,000 Wizarding XP quickly, once again, drink a Brain Elixir. Wait until you’re on the Bonus Assignment to open some Gifts, prioritizing any Extravagant Gifts and others with high Wizarding XP. This task is a smaller amount of XP than usual, and Brain Elixirs are giving triple XP, so this task is easy.

Finite is the spell to assist Foundables that have been transfigured. This is used for Brilliant Quaffle, which is boosted, but also Arthur Weasley, George Weasley, Quidditch World Cup, Quaffle, Pomona Sprout, Quidditch Fan Neville Longbottom, and the Slytherin Student. If you do the spell slowly or poorly, you may get the chance to cast several for each Foundable you return.

Finally, use Tonic for Trace Detection to find the 20 Magical Games and Sports Foundables, including Quidditch Captain Harry Potter. Only 2 of these are boosted, but any will count.

Brilliant Foundables and Where to Find Them


Just like all Brilliant Events, you will only be able to encounter some of these Brilliant Foundables on the Map. The others are available as rewards for doing Wizarding Challenges with Brilliant Runestones and unlocking Brilliant Portkeys.

If you complete the Bonus Assignment, you do NOT need to unlock any Brilliant Portkeys.

How to Prepare for the Brilliant Event


Most Wizards Unite events, including Brilliant Events, will be easier to complete if you work on your SOS Training. Unlock as many of these nodes as you can!

With a more potent Baruffio’s Brain Elixir, you can earn Wizarding XP more quickly.

With reduced brewing times for Exstimulo Potions and Healing Potions, you can complete Master Notes tasks more quickly. You can also brew Potions more quickly.

With more Traces revealed by Tonic for Trace Detection, you can more quickly find Brilliant Traces, as well as the boosted Foundables. This will help you complete tasks.

Tips to Complete the Brilliant Event


At this point, I don’t know how many players are willing to start a game that is ending in less than 3 months. However, for relatively new players, and returning players, I still want to keep this basic advice available.

  • If you are below level 20 in Wizards Unite, you might want to use Exstimulo Potions on the Brilliant Foundables. Otherwise they will use a lot of Spell Energy to return, because they resist.
  • As a reminder, Part 1 Portkeys will give you Part 1 Rewards anytime you open them, even if you wait to open them during Part 2. Brilliant Portkeys will glow purple on the Map. Be sure to pick up 5 Brilliant Portkeys during the Brilliant Event, even if you don’t open them all during the event.
  • If you are nervous about finding time to walk the Brilliant Portkeys, or are living under a lockdown, you can also earn the necessary Brilliant Fragments by completing the Bonus Assignment.
  • To find the Brilliant Vial of Felix Felicis, you must do Wizarding Challenges with Brilliant Constance’s Lament Runestones. It’s easiest to do this during Quest 4 since it’s a task. To minimize your usage of Spell Energy, stick with Ruins IV-V Chambers. It might take a few extra Wizarding Challenges to get the 3 Fragments you need, but you’ll be able to do so quickly, without expending too many resources. If you’re low on Runestones, try Tower I-II Chambers to improve your odds of earning the required Fragments.
  • If you decide to visit Inns, Fortresses, or Greenhouses during this event, continue to practice social distancing. Check out our previous article on staying safe while playing Wizards Unite.
  • Save your Scrolls and your Restricted Section Books until the end of the event. Then use our guide to spend them wisely! That said, most long-time players have already earned all the necessary Restricted Section Books, with many players working on their third profession already. Restricted Section Books can also be used in SOS Training and Advanced Adversarial Combat.
