Dementors, Boggarts, and Werewolves, Oh My!



Finish off the month of October with a SPOOKY Halloween event in Harry Potter: Wizards Unite.

Sadly, Harrowing Halloween is not back this year, but players will delight in an all-new Halloween event featuring Dementors, Boggarts, and Werewolves. This is too perfect with the full moon on Halloween itself!

Boosted Foundables come from both the Legends of Hogwarts and the Ministry of Magic Registries plus Werewolves, of course.

Halloween Event Tasks

Tasks are a bit of a grind, but still easier than what weve seen in recent events. Im also impressed by the rewards.

How to Prepare for the Halloween Event

Everyones strategy will be a little different, depending on your goals. Are you looking to prestige multiple pages? Grind Wizarding Challenges? Grind Ministry Manuals? Prioritize the task list? Your goals will create your strategy.


Regardless of your strategy, if you plan on returning multiple Foundables over Halloween, youll need to stockpile Potionis. Focus on the following:

  • Exstimulo Potion
  • Strong Exstimulo Potion
  • Dawdle Draught
  • Tonic for Trace Detection
  • Baruffios Brain Elixir

Youll need to use 7 Exstimulo Potions of any strength during Halloween weekend. If youre worried about wasting potions, brew regular Exstimulo Potions to complete that task quickly. However, youll still want to have Strong Exstimulo Potions to help return Severe-threat Foundables like Young Harry Potter and Young Remus Lupin.

Ministry Employee Newt Scamander is an Emergency-threat Foundable, so save your Dawdle Draughts for him.

Tonic for Trace Detection will help you attract even more Traces, which is helpful for anyone playing from home. To maximize your benefits, consider unlocking the following skills in your SOS Training. These allow you to get even more Traces per Tonic.

  • Stir Crazy
  • Concentrated Concoction
  • Trained For This

You dont need to use Baruffios Brain Elixir, but events are a great opportunity to grind Wizarding XP. Consider unlocking the following skills in your SOS Training!

These SOS Training Lessons improve Brain Elixir potency, meaning you earn even more Wizarding XP.

  • Start a Movement
  • Sous Vide
  • Clear Your Mind

These SOS Training Lessons lengthen the Potion duration. Each of these adds 5 additional minutes.

  • A Wing and a Flare
  • Temp Work
  • Bottoms Up

I did a whole video on this! Even with the nerfed Trace Charm, you can still grind Wizarding XP during special events.


Walk walk walk! With 3 different event Portmanteaus on the Map (all color-coded!), you want plenty of space to pick up new ones. Walk off as many of your existing Portmanteaus as possible.

I recommend waiting until the event begins to open them all. Pop on a Brain Elixir and enjoy the XP benefits! Use the rest of the Brain Elixir with a Trace Tonic.

Prestige Registry Pages

Depending on your current Registry status, you might be able to prestige one or more Registry pages during the Halloween event. Check the following pages to determine your strategy.

In Dark Arts:

  • Fallen Ministry Atrium

In Legends of Hogwarts:

  • Potions Classroom
  • Room of Requirement V
  • Hogwarts Grounds

In Ministry of Magic:

  • Ministry Atrium II
  • Courtroom Ten

In Oddities:

  • Oddities I

Looking at my pages, I hope to prestige Potions Classroom, Courtroom Ten, and Oddities I. While I probably wont manage all of them, I plan on working towards each of these pages.


I dont need to do anything to prepare for Potions Classroom. I just hope I will find enough Young Harry Potter!


Sadly, the Portkey reward isnt the one I need. To best use the Portkeys plus the boosted Tonks Traces, I will do Wizarding Challenges with a Ministry of Magic Runestone to get more of the Visitors Entrance.


To prepare for Oddities I, I will do Wizarding Challenges with an Oddities Runestone. I just need 4 Centaur Bows to prestige that page. Then I will be able to fill out all of the Werewolves I need on the Silver frame.

How to Enjoy October Wizarding Weekend

Remember, Wizards Unite events should be FUN! If you start stressing out, take a break. Its not a big deal if you dont complete the tasks.

Be particular about the Portmanteaus you pick up. Which fragments do you need? Prioritize those Portmanteaus.

If any of your Registry pages are gold, grind Ministry Manuals! I cant wait to place Pavarti Patil multiple times.


Finally, stay tuned for a Halloween livestream! Im talking to some of my friends about getting together for a Wizards Unite livestream on Halloween.

Halloween Event Store Packs

No event is without store packs! The handy infographic below is courtesy of Orange Wizard.


I will break down the value of these bundles before the event begins. I just dont have time right now to do math.
